    7/155. Can't wait to see this guy pitch. I wonder what number he'll take.
    Thank you for making me calm today, Brett Gardner

    I love baseball in general and the Yankees just happen to be my favorite team since I knew what baseball was.

    Are we writing off Pineda again?

    I wouldn't write off Pineda, but I also wouldn't slot him anywhere above 5 in the rotation until he shows otherwise.

    is that potentially the best rotation in baseball?

    I agree. Just saying both are better than the Yanks unless all question marks get answered positively.

    Vintage CC would make the Yankees rotation absolutely filthy.

    Lots of question marks there, but the upside is fun to think about.

    Not best, but should allow us to compete in the playoffs not to mention as someone else pointed out completes the all ending in the letter A rotation!

    Have watched him since his high school days like Darvish. The only thing I would say is "He would be good in MLB".

    Considering CC is a shell of his former self. No. Not unless he makes a large comeback this season.

    Not to mention Pineda is an unknown and won't be anywhere near ready to pitch a complete season. Nova although I love him, has been wildly inconsistent.

    I believe Tanaka will not only have a great season, but will be the key piece to lead the Yankkes to #28! Here's my thinking behind this:

    I'd put it behind the Dodgers, Nationals, Tigers, Giants, and maybe even the Braves.

    It's not even the best rotation in the division, unless the Rays trade Price.

    Do like they do 206 miles up yonder and recycle those Johnny Damon jerseys (#18 if you need to know). Preferably the ones that aren't numbered.

    With a healthy, productive CC... it's close. However, I don't see CC rebounding all the way to where he was a couple years ago. Still, Tanaka/Kuroda/CC/Nova is a nice start. If one (or more) of the youngsters step up, the Yankees should be in excellent shape.

    lol not even close...CC had a bad year last year, Pineda hasn't pitched in 2 years, and Tanaka has never thrown a pitch in the majors.

    they have a lot to prove before being dubbed anything near that.
