    How does the Yankees Pitching shape up for 2012?

    Starting Staff:  

    CC Sabathia will be the most intriguing and potentially the most significant player for the Yankees to deal with. He can and should opt out of his current contract for a bigger payday - and there is only one team who can pay him more.

    Freddie Garcia is a free agent and might still be able to fill the #5 role in an upgraded staff or perhaps maybe hold the #4 spot on a weaker one.

    Barton Colon is a free agent and should be a no brainier for departure.

    AJ Burnett and Ivan Nova are signed, though Burnett might be bought out? He is signed through 2013 so it would not be cheap.

    Rafeal Soriano can also opt out but my guess is after a poor 2011 he stays put, and perhaps to the ire of the Yankee FO. His money is guaranteed.

    Phil Hughes and Joba "the hut" Chamberlain are both arbitration eligible. 

    Mo Rivera will be back lest he finally wants to stretch out in that silk hammock overlooking a crystal blue Caribbean.  

    I cannot get into the bullpen but I see the starting rotation as:

    1) Sabathia
    2) Free agent or trade, either way a BIG name.
    3) Hughes
    4) Nova
    5) Garcia

    Something tells me that CC gets a small raise, adds another couple of years, and heads to the Angels or Giants..........it would leave the yankee rotation completely and totally devastated

    though i could be wrong, i seriously doubt either of those teams would pay Sabathia above his current contract...especially the Giants..

    Depends mightaly on how they finish this year......an early exit, ( even, can we hope, a blown out early exit) the pressure on the front office will be immense to 'pay and price, bear any burden' and empty the farm for a King Felix / Matt Gazra level pitcher

    They will sign CC and Cashman will stabilize the rotation with either a name free agent or from within their system.  I'll give the pipsqueak credit he won't ruin their farm system.  Believing  the Yankees will suddenly collapse next year is like believing a lawyer can get into heaven.

    Exactly.  Why would the Gigantes be needing another high salaried pitcher when their offense is on par with the Pads and Mariners.  They need hitting!!

    Cashman goes to the Cubbies, CC signs with them and brings long awaited WS to Chi town.  Hey, andrew, I can wish too.

    well whoever signs CC won't be as lucky as his first contract

    yankees got more than their money's worth

    but his next contract will be more money and even cc can't continue to pitch as well as he had for the past 3 years - no matter how you slice it it won't be as good a contract for the team who gets him next

    as far as keeping the farm in tact?  for what?  they have veterns locked up around the diamond for many more years....

    the yankee farm is mostly about pitching

    which also happens to be the thread topic

    CJ Wilson is probably the greatest threat.  He has always pitched well against the Sox, and the Yankees need another lefty in the rotation.  CC will be back but will re-negotiate for a fatter (no pun intended) deal with more years, which will eventually hurt the Yankees, but not next season.  Nova has looked pretty good - he may be a legit #3 by the end of next season.  

    As always, the Yankees prospects were a bust, with probably every single BA top 100 prospect's stock falling (maybe Banuelos tread water).  Montero is finishing the season strong, though, and may help the team as a September callup.

    If Cashman or Theo did join Chicago they would have a good chance of winning the World Series in the next few years.   It is definitely possible that this could happen.

    Happy birthday, Slendid Splinter

    Today is the birthday of the late, great Ted Williams. He was born in 1918 in San Diego and went on to become the greatest hitter who ever lived.

    Gaze in wonder at the man's statistics over 19 seasons. He hit .344 with a .482 OBP and a .634 slugging percentage.

    Williams went to the plate 9,791 times in his career and struck out only 709 times.

    As legend has it, a rookie pitcher once threw a pitch down the middle that was called a ball. When he complained, the umpire told him he'll know it's a strike if Ted swings at it.

    Joe DiMaggio had a 56-game hitting streak from May 15 to July 16, 1941. It's a record that will probably never be broken. DiMaggio hit .408 with a 1.180 OPS during his streak.

    Williams hit .412 with a 1.224 OPS from May 15 to July 16, 1941. He hit .406/.553/.735 that season.

    That's how great Ted Williams was.

    It seems kind of neat the Sox are playing the Yankees today. Maybe one of the Red Sox will hit a ball deep into the right field bleachers and it will give an old man a good excuse to tell his grandson that Teddy Ballgame used to hit 'em a lot deeper than that.

    Lets see they'll have 5 or 6 guys in their rotation...7 guys in their pen and a host of good prosepcts in the minors and will once again field a team capable of winning 95 games that's what 250M in payroll buys...

    I say let's enjoy the rest of 2011 before we start the hot stove chatter for 2012...
