    A-Rod should slow down. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

    Not that I want Damon over anyone else, but I wouldn't mind some more of this at least.

    Nova earned the #2 spot IMHO

    I'm a firm believer that unless you're lining up for the playoffs, there is very, very little meaning to the question of who's #2 in your rotation. IMHO, every year people obsess about this kind of stuff for no apparent reason.

    The important takeaway from the previous post is that he's predicting Garcia will be the odd man out when the rotation is set. And that's the much more interesting question for the Yankees to answer.

    Exactly. Very little meaning in the batting order as well.

    Hughes will have an advantage based on his age for the fifth spot. He will really need to show nothing to not get it. From what I remember, Garcia never historically does well in ST.

    That said, everything would need to work out perfect and no one have any set backs for Garcia not to be in the rotation. Yankee fans should hope Garcia is not in the rotation when they head north. It means everything went right in regards to Pitching in ST.

    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    I'd rather have Garcia than Hughes

    I like Garcia but I don't understand why you would prefer him over Hughes? Again, I meant Hughes shows up to ST and performs not being handed the job.

    You've given up on Hughes then?

    I think we now have a rotation capable of letting Hughes pitch a full year. I would give him the spot right out of ST.

    The Yankees never give pitchers the chance to stink for a few years, which a lot of them need to do.

    He's sucked for 2 years, imo.

    He sucked in half of 2010. The latter half. And all of last year. I've given up on him. I'd be more than happy for Hughes to prove me wrong. But, for me, as it stands, Garcia plz.

    I'd rather Garcia as well. He has ten times the pitching smarts than Hughes does and unless Phil has regained his nasty stuff, the sweaty one is a guarantee to be more consistent than Phil.

    For the record, Phil seems much better out of the pen than as a starter iMHO.

    Hughes looks in AMAZING shape. Guess he worked out hard.

    While its not what i would like to see i expect that to be the case. The truth is Garcia pitched worse than Colon in ST last season yet beat him into the rotation primarily because it takes him so long to warm up we didn't see him as a Bullpen option. I expect to see the same thing happen this season. Hughes has proven ability coming out of the bullpen and those reservations about Garcia in the Bullpen will surely still be there.

    Looking at the bigger picture I think the Yankees look at Phil (should he not utterly suck in ST) as part of out starting rotation for hopefully years to come and will give him every opportunity to take the 5th spot.

    I view Garcia more of a spot starter, insurance and depth in case of injury to a starter, and possibly long relief just to give him some work between spot starts. We'll see.
