My money's on Mitre

I know the Yankees don’t want either of their young stud pitchers resting on their laurels or assuming they are being handed a rotation spot, but why even bother telling people the 5th slot in the rotation is an open competition between Joba Chamberlain, Phil Hughes, Chad Gaudin, Sergio Mitre and Alfredo Aceves?

Every single person in America knows the spot is Joba’s or Phil’s to lose, and frankly if somehow Mitre came away from Spring Training the winner of this particular contest the Yankees would have a serious problem on their hands.

  1. The latter, although if my own brother didn't pick up on the fact that this post was supposed to be dripping with sarcasm then I may have bigger problems than the Yankees if Mitre winds up being the fifth starter.

  2. I did have to read the entire post to realize the title was sarcasm

    In Mitre's defense, he did have that one good start… in Chicago, maybe? But yeah, the real competition is between Phil and Joba. Mitre or Gaudin are probably going to get traded, right?
