I know Torre's book is the hottest topic right now in Yankeeland. I care about the signing of Pettitte more. Depending on which report you believe, there are different financial terms on Pettitte's new contract. No matter how much Pettitte will get, we will have a veteran starter who eats innings as our no.4 starter in the rotation if Yankees do re-sign Pettitte. I have been said all along. We need one more starter to put Joba and Hughes in the no.5 spot because they all have their innings limit. Not to mention, we need that pitching depth in order to prepare for any kind of injury.
Welcome back, Pettitte.
Now, I will put C.C., Wang, A.J., Pettitte and Joba in this kind of order for our rotation because C.C., A.J., and Joba are more power pitchers with high strikeout number when Wang and Pettitte are more contact pitchers with more groundballs.
Great Job, Cashman.
