Over at Britt's Bird Watch there are some interesting quotes from Justin Duchscherer who is going to be throwing a bullpen session for the Orioles on Friday. He basically says that he's not concerned about being overwhelmed in New York, his main issue is that he wants to start and wants a team who will pretty much guarantee that he'll be a starter if he's healthy. I don't know what the Yankees are waiting for as I can't imagine his contract will be too expensive. When our direct competition is the Orioles, Nationals, Pirates, and Indians for his services I think we can offer the most appealing package. I would much rather have the Yankees over pay for Duchscherer than sign Soriano, but now that we have Soriano, we might as well get one of those incentive packed contracts ready and see what Duchscherer can do!
