Via Bryan Hoch –
There has been buzz on the Hot Stove about the Yankees potentially showing interest in the Tigers’ Armando Galarraga – he of the imperfect Jim Joyce game – who was designated for assignment. He’s easily one of the more appealing options out there, given the marketplace.
Regarding another possible upgrade to the rotation, Cashman said: “I hope so. The starter might have to come from within. Hopefully we have some of these young kids answer the bell for us. In the meantime, we’ll still keep our eyes and ears open to the remaining market, which is very limited.”
He added: “It’s a difficult market to choose from. Listen, if you’re still on the board, there’s a reason for it.”
And, this is not the same as 2008, how, Brian? Remember using Hughes and Kennedy in the rotation to start that season?
That year, the Yankees went 2-7 in Kennedy’s first 9 games of the season and they went 1-5 in Hughes first 6 games of the season. And, that had to play a part in the Yankees only going 89-73 overall in 2008.
