      I’m as in love with the young arms as the next guy but how can people trust Mark Melancon already? That’s just goofy.

      I’m sure if you did a blog search, you’d probably find some Yankees fanboy blogs out there already selling “Mark Melancon = Mo 2.0” shirts or something…

      i have to agree. loving the upside and potential is one thing. but it would be tough to trust him already. i do think there is a chance we could be trusting him soon, however.

      it will be nice to get albaladejo back. he flashed some good things last year, and there is probably a role for him in that bullpen, even if it isn’t in the late innings.

      is al aceves already in the rotation? why wasnt he an option?

      As of today, he’s in the rotation – since they have no one else under contract besides Wang, Joba and Hughes, no?

      Hard to believe Bruney is only going to be 27 in February. Not a bad pickup for talent-evaluation-retarded GM.

      Excuse me, but, what has Bruney exactly proven to date?

      That he’s not an injury risk?
      That he’s not a risk to walk the ballpark?

      FWIW, IMHO, he’s proven nothing – and I wouldn’t want to count on him.

      So what does it say then if Bruney is the most dependable guy in the Yankees bullpen other than Mo, because that’s what he is right now…I like Bruney but that kind of scares me in a way too. Hopefully Veras and the young guys can continue their success from last season.

      …and the 36 people who voted for Marte so far must not have watched a game last season…scary!
