This has been the quietest hot stove season in Yankee land in recent memory, and I for one am sick of it. So here's a couple reclamation projects to consider. Available on the free agent market are former starters Scott Kazmir and Justin Duchscherer. In the past I advocated against signing Duchscherer because it would take too long to learn how to pronounce his name correctly. An investment of time I just wasn't willing to make. But with so little going on with the Yankees, and so much time on my hands, I think its time. Sign Duchscherer to a minor league deal, snatch up Kazmir while you're at it, and lets see if either of them can compete for a spot as the 5 guy, or at the very least as another releiver. Kazmir may be the left handed specialist we've been looking for. All I'm asking is that we do something, anything, to give me something to talk about at the water cooler at work. Right now, I'm left talking about life, and people's kids and crap like that. C'mon Yankees!
