  1. Good story Brien. I don't think Harper gets it. I mean everyone who is sane is saying that the deal between Seattle and NY won't be decided for another few years, yet Harper is making the proclamation that if Pineda is not the No. 2 starter by the postseason, then he is not a 'Godsend'. Why is it the NY media hates giving the Yankees time to develop their pitchers?

    In Sherman's blog, he hints that maybe when the Yankees realize Hughes is not a starter, he might be Mo's replacement. Hughes had a tough year last year, but there is such a fascination with the NY media dumping young Yankee starters without giving them a chance to develop. And all it does is create stories that wouldn't be there. It's an obvious agenda to create a storyline, and not actually let a natural baseball process occur.

    Sorry for the rant.
