Mike Mussina, Chien-Ming Wang, Jeff Karstens, Darrell Rasner, Carl Pavano, Philip Hughes, Scott Proctor, Mariano Rivera, and Kyle Farnsworth. All pitchers, and if healthy, can produce. All are right handers.
Maybe its me, but we need some leftys, and we need them now. It would be nice to have at least one or two leftys not aged by 43 years named Randy Johnson.
We paid $25 million for the rights to deal for a 27 year old lefty named Kei Igawa which is a start I guess. I'd like to hear about some other irons in the fire though. Looks like Jason Schmidt will be a Cub. Barry Zito is a Met. And Andy Pettite is still trying to find the nuts to say whether or not he's in or out.
Just what is going on here?
I like some of the moves we've made so far, and like our odds (which I do every year) in 2007, this is the one spot that truly makes me nervous. I'd like to see one more starter, and possibly two bull penners that throw Left. If we can sew this up, then I think we have a real shot at sewing it all up.
Misc. Notes - Toronto is looking like they mean business with the signing of the Big Hurt. They have two studs in the starting ro, an above average closer, and some monsters in the offensive lineup. They have their sights set on something better than 2nd in the East. Which is good - I'm tired of hearing about the Sox (both Red and White for that matter). How about number 92 Michael Strahan finally calling out Burress. Maybe now Burress will stop running 8 yards on his 10 yard and out patterns. Prediction for this week's Regional Final for D3 football: SJFC 27 Rowen 10.
