Oh Crap! The Yankees Finally Done It!
Off Season salvaged ladies and gentleman! The Yankees have claimed right handed pitcher Brian Schlitter from the Cubs. You may remember Schlitter from triple A Iowa where he recorded 13 saves with a 3.15 ERA. He pitched 8 innings at the big league level and gave up 11 earned runs in that time, but that's a small sampling. So where does he fit in on the Yankees roster? He doesn't. But he gives us a ready arm at the minor league level we can call upon at any moment. He may even make the 25 man roster if he pitches well enough in spring training. However, this does not address our starting rotation issue. Is anyone else getting the feeling that we may be seeing Sidney Ponson again?
