    Freddy Garcia does not need to make his next start. He doesn’t need to make the start after that either. Joe Girardi said he wanted to “sleep on it” when asked about Garcia’s rotation spot, but as far as I can tell the only thing worth giving that much thought to is whether or not it’s even worth keeping Garcia around in a relief role, or if it makes the most sense to just cut him loose and use the roster spot on someone else.

    Once upon a time, Andy Pettitte‘s return to the Yankees almost seemed like a problem. The Yankees already had one man too many for their starting rotation, and with Freddy Garcia and Phil Hughes pitching well in the spring, it was hard to see how an even bigger bottleneck would be sorted out by adding Pettitte to the mix as well. Oh what a difference a month makes. These days, of course, Hughes and Garcia have been terrible in the regular season while Michael Pineda is officially out for the season without throwing a single pitch in a game that counted and, suddenly, Pettitte’s return feels like less of a heartwarming human interest story and more like a crucial piece of the Yankees’ 2012 season.

    Here lies the problem. The in-house "plan" right now is for Ackley to back up Teixeira and hope that Castro can back up Headley. Injuries to

    For a minimal price, maybe. But I would rather go with guys we have already. Challenge them to earn the spot and see what you get. But to sign guys

    What do you think about Casey McGehee? Will he sign a minor league contract and accept a NRI? He surely realizes that due to Teixeira's and Headley's

    The way I see it, Rothschild & Girardi have got to figure out a way to get 1000 IP out of their starters this year, in order to avoid overworked relievers

    White Sox signing all the bounceback candidates. Latos, Lawrie, Axford, wonder if they go after Desmond on a short deal (top prospect is a SS).

    lower range war is overrated tho. you can get a 1 war guy easily, but no playing time to test. basically friction is part of replacement cost and that
