Much A-doings A-happening
Now that Grienke is off the market the Yankees have one less viable option for a premium starter. But those of us getting impatient need to chill out. The Yankees just signed reliever Luis Vizcaino. "Nobody beats the Viz" remember? Apparently the rest of the market forgot it, as we signed him to a minor league deal, but Cashman never forgets, and now our middle relief is set. The Yankee strategy is now confirmed. Sign as many middle relievers as possible to make up for a lack of starters. By signing Mark Prior, Pedro Feliciano and now Luis Vizcaino, among others our middle relief is now stacked. That means that our starters only need to last about 3 innings every start, and that will ensure that they can make 3 starts a week. No need for a 4th and 5th starter. The Yankees' plan is bulletproof.
