• Cashman: We Have Replacements For Mussina

    Posted by on August 25th, 2007 · Comments (3)

    From George King:

    With talk swirling through the Yankees universe that Mike Mussina could be pitching for his rotation spot Monday night against the Tigers, the right-hander said he isn’t feeling the pressure.

    “Who would they replace me with?” Mussina asked prior to last night’s Yankees-Tigers game at Comerica Park.

    Actually, GM Brian Cashman on Thursday brought up three names as possible replacements for the struggling veteran, mentioning minor leaguers Ian Kennedy, Steven White and, yes, even Kei Igawa.

    Kei Igawa? That Brian is some card, huh?

      Steven White didn’t make his case any stonger last night…

      Steven White: 5 IP, 10 H, 6 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 WP

      Bringing up Kennedy would be an act of desperation, and if they don’t at least split with Detroit, well they will be desperate…

      Yeah, but Igawa did a couple nights ago…

      Kei Igawa: 6 IP, 6H, 0R, 1BB, 7K

      His starts weren’t exactly setting the world on fire before that game though. He’s doing OK in AAA, but nothing spectacular that makes me think he’s figured anything out.
