    Too many things have to miraculously spin just right for this to be a competitive rotation. The odds are poor.

    If our rotation is just decent in 2012, that will be a far drop off from 2011 when our rotation was a strength. I'm allowing for a likely decreased output from Garcia and a leveling off of Nova. I do have hopes that Hughes will rebound from his 2011 season however.

    I can't bring myself to have any confidence in Hughes as a starting pitcher.

    Do I have confidence that he'll be a top of the rotation starter? Not much but I do think he can be a dependable 3.

    On pace to lose 162 games, just barely finishing ahead of the Orioles. Doooomed.

    Baltimore won against Minnesota, so we have no chance of finishing ahead of them now.

    Doomed, I say, doomed.

    To top it off, Mo's ERA is 54.00. How's he ever going to get that down? Clearly, he's completely cooked.

    Phil Hughes is all that stands between us and 0-3. Doomed.

    Re: The Official "We're Doomed" Thread

    We're 0-2 and the Mets are 2-0. Doomed.

    But, trying to look on the bright side, we might have a number of viable candidates for Pettitte to replace in May.

    The Yankee bats are doomed because they do not seem able to beat all the defensive shifts that the Rays are throwing at them. It's unreal how many times I've thought "base hit" these past two games only to see a Rays player standing right where the ball has been hit to.

    We're two games behind the Orioles. Girardi needs to call a team meeting....NOW.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Nah. The Yankees aren't doomed. They're snakebitten.
