Ponson, Pavano and, would you believe, Zambrano. Yup, Joel Sherman mentions Victor Zambrano today in the latest edition of his Hardball blog.
I bet we could trade Igawa to Texas to get him back!
(Related question - who's stock has fallen farther this year, Igawa or Steven White?)
I'll take Pavano over Zambrano, that is if Carl doesn't tear his rotator cuff putting on his jersey. I'd take Hughes over both, but won't argue if the Yanks don't feel he's ready to return yet. The last thing I want is for him to come back and struggle and have that get in his head.
you may want to copyright the phrase "douche quotient" .... its a keeper ...
we'll call it DQ for short
As Cashman holds his nose, wading through the dumpster of not-so-appealing pitching options, I have one word for him (and two arms): Venditte.
Looking forward to seeing the ambidextrous kid doing his thing in the bigs next month. Him, Hughes, Joba, and A-Jax (ok, and Mo) are pretty much the only players in the organization who intrigue me at this point. The rest are penciled in on the "dead-to-me-until-next-year-if-not-forever" list, and I'm running out of reasons not to ink those names now, and get it over with.
12 oh yes - we have a lot of dq ratios to determine
20 Cash with the Chateau Lafite budget, and taste for Ripple?
he's a nice story.
he's not a prospect.
he's fringe-mediocre from the right side and that's his strong side ... if he even makes to the majors for a cup of coffee, i'd say that would be a miracle.
OK now, when one of the key anchors of your rotation is Sidney Ponson and you're contemplating adding either (or both) Carl Pavano and Victor Zambrano, it should be clear that you aren't going to the post season.
I hope Matsui comes out on fire . . .
A. Rodriguez 3B
I. Rodriguez C
would that go ...
that's a fun lineup to play around with ...
too bad, too bad.
