Top Ten Tuesdays Thursdays: We Need You
Thursday, June 19, 2008
Despite the 6-game winning streak and three straight games with 8+ runs scored, it's been a semi-rough week for the Yanks, thanks to the loss of the Wangster. As I'm sure you're well aware by now, Wangy had trouble rounding the bases (damn you, 90-degree turns!) earlier this week and busted up his foot; he's now a fallen soldier and has taken up residence at the quickly-overcrowding DL Resort and Casino (which, incidentally, features such games as "how will Pavano hurt himself next?" and the "Wheel of Broken Bones" slot machine).

I've discussed on this here bloggity the few pitching options available to the team, be it by trade or signing pitchers cast away by the rest of the league. Since the issue becomes more pressing with each passing day, I think we should continue the discussion and take a gander at who might be available to fill out the rotation.

Top Ten (semi-realistic) Pitching Options:

10) Carl Pavano (or...not)
9) Roger Clemens
8) David Wells
7) Brad Penny
6) Sidney Ponson (ps: whyyyy bring that bad attitude to a team that's been playing with heart and spirit!?)
5) Brian Fuentes
4) CC Sabathia
3) Hughsie
2) IPK
1) Kei Igawa (you know it's coming)

    Nothing would be more entertaining than to see Ponson in a Yankee uniform one more time.

    wow. not even a mention of Daniel McCutchen?

    Igawa is not even a viable option. Is there no way to get him off the roster so as not to waste room? Hopefully this is his contract year. Free agency will never be the same!

    I doubt Ponson would try anything here, Girardi would lay his ass out!

    I think Sabathia in pinstripes is a very viable possibility. I'd like to see him turn his game around with the team, maybe drink a couple of Purples and start pitching like he used to. We can hope!

    CC???? Well Pinstripes are thinning

    Fuentes would make the Pen mightier than the maple sword (the wise move as far as I'm concerned) and shorten games which would allow some of the younger starters to stay inline with pitch counts in spite of the need for innings eaters.

    The Yanks are supposed to be deep on pitching in the gerber-circuit. I say turn the pen into a monster and let some of the youngins have a shot to earn their place or at least get a taste without jeopardizing games in the process.

    I don't like any of the last-year-of-their-contract pitchers out there for the Yanks. I think that they need to promote from within on this one. Unless, they can find a way to get a top end starter (under 34587214 years old!!!!!) without depleting the farm.

    Even though my pre-season pick of Dellin Betances being one of the fastest climbing gerber-Yanks doesn't look so promising right now, I still believe that if he could hone in the command he would be a GREAT lil suprise in the pen.

    I hope that I'm picking up the sarcasm that you're laying down.

    None of those players will see pinstripes anytime soon - if ever - with the possible exceptions of Hughes and IPK.....
