Comment Winter Olympics: Matt Cain, Derek Jeter and Yankees pitching
It was a quiet week here at the blog. The judges had to look around some to come up with three comments they liked the best.
Without further ado:
--The bronze goes to JE, who offered some data on the discussion point of Matt Cain possibly joining the Yankees as a free agent for the 2013 season:
--The silver goes to Sandy, who perked up when alerted that Derek Jeter and Minka Kelly are reportedly back together:
He should stick with the quickies and the parting gifts until his contract is up.
--And the gold goes to a rookie, FLong, who opined about the Yankees' need for starting pitching:
Waiting for free agents, who may never come here, is not the answer to the Yankees' rotation problems. Counting on home-grown pitching to develop may not be, either. Remember when Phil Hughes was the untouchable "Crown Jewel" of the farm system? They're still waiting for him to pan out.
The only solution, whether it's now or in July, is to trade prospects for proven winners.
--Check back later today for a contest.
