    Pineda is one of the best five starters in camp and the Yankees tend to value that every year. Pineda can develop at the major league level like he did last year. His change-up is ML tested.

  2. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 8:19 am

    There is just as much pressure on Hughes and Nova with Pineda pitching against ML hitters vs. minor league hitters.

  3. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 8:27 am

    I also want to be clear that I don’t believe the Yankees will allow two rookies (Banuelos and Betances) in the rotation in 2013.

    However, I don’t think Hughes is needed to hedge against two rookies (Banuelos and Betances) in the 2013 rotation.

    Every year there are 1-year stop gap options like Freddy Garcia, Bartolo Colon, Hiroki Kuroda and Andy Pettitte. They’re not hard to find.

    So I think you find one of those guys and leverage him against a long-term commitment to Phil Hughes at 10-15 million.

    I don’t see how you pay Hughes that much money to be your 4th starter long term after CC, Pineda and Nova.

    I don’t see how you pay Hughes that much money long term when you have so much pitching depth that is cost controlled – Betances, Banuelos, Warren, Mitchell, Phelps, Marshall, DePaula…

    The Yankees don’t need to spend 15 million dollars on a #4 starter.

    The fact that Hughes only has two years left on his contract and it falls short of 2014 – i think is a huge issue.

  4. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 8:32 am

    That 10-15 dollars is earmarked for Russell Martin because Montero is gone, Cervelli is not a starter and Romine is not ready.

    That’s just the reality of it, goofy or not goofy.

  5. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 8:35 am

    And with CC, Pineda and Nova, do the Yankees really need Hughes to turn into a pricey frontline starter? Nope. If he gets too pricey then Hamels, Cain or Greinke make more sense.

  6. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 8:39 am

    Because Hamels, Cain or Greinke are more established frontline starters than Hughes. Those guys are legit and a safer bet.

  7. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 8:44 am

    ” His change-up is ML tested.”

    hahahhahahahahhahha

    the best thing about pineda’s change up is that it’s faster than a lot of guy’s fastballs.

    or maybe that’s the worst part.

    he needs to work on more separation between the fastball and change .

    do we really want him to be doing that work with adrian gonzalez up with the bases loaded in yankee stadium at the end of a close game.

    if i’m the catcher, i’m calling for his fastball or slider.
    gonzalez is going to be guessing with two pitches. 50/50
    not the best odds for pineda.

  8. jacksquat March 25th, 2012 at 8:46 am

    There’s a practical limit to how much Hughes’ salary can increase in arb in 2013. He’s not going to jump up to 16+ mil no matter how well he pitches in 2012.

  9. ron March 25th, 2012 at 8:49 am

    If hughes is pitching with a 2.90 era,1.10 whip,his value will be as a number 1 starter,reagardless of what any other pitcher is doing,or where in the order.

    Also,if hughes does become an ace,he will be cheaper than a free agent ace because signing your own is cheaper,even if it’s only a little cheaper,and 25 year old aces do not hit the market.

    The yankees will lose pettitte,garcia,kuroda,and who knows how good anybody else will be.
    There is always room fora 26 or 27 year old ace.
    If hughes turns into an ace,the yankees would be crazy not to sign him,even if you have to get rid of swisher,and martin.

    Also keep in mind,cano,and granderson will be pushing 32 years old when they hit fa,so i doubt the yankees sign both long term for 20-24 million a year.Their best years will be behind them.

  10. MaineYankee March 25th, 2012 at 8:50 am

    randy

    do we really want him to be doing that work with adrian gonzalez up with the bases loaded in yankee stadium at the end of a close game.

    ————————————————————————

    So based on this thinking maybe Warren should be in the rotation.

    He didn’t seem to have trouble with Gonzales.

  11. ron March 25th, 2012 at 8:57 am

    Do you really see the yankees getting rid of a 27 year old hughes in 2013,if he has a 3.0 era,1.10 whip,just because we have other pitchers,and because of the new cba?

    One of cano or granderson will be gone first at 32 years old,commanding possibly 24 million a year.

  12. mick March 25th, 2012 at 8:58 am

    the guy with the fifth spot is going to be on the hot spot almost for sure.
    ==============
    randy

    why not give the 5 to Freddy? The 5 will not pitch much in April. Send Pineda or Nova down to get as much work as possible then if Andy is ready in May bring him and Pineda/Nova back, only problem is you have 6 starters at that point.

  13. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 8:59 am

    Cano or Granderson gone? We’ll see.

  14. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 9:00 am

    And if they let go of Martin because they want to use that money for Hughes, what do they do about catcher?

  15. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 9:01 am

    And if they let go of Swisher and need the money required to sign his replacement (i. e. Melky Cabrera), what do they do about RF?

  16. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 9:01 am

    maine yankee-

    i’m just thinking that whoever stays is going to be on the hot seat.

    it might be a case of be careful what you wish for.

    he who is first might end up last.

  17. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 9:02 am

    “why not give the 5 to Freddy? ”

    that’s what i’d do.

  18. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 9:03 am

    So it’s fine and dandy (perhaps a little “goofy”) to sign Hughes for 10-15 million and hope that you can just make Swisher and Martin go poof, it doesn’t really work that way. You need Hughes money for those spots more than you need it for a rotation spot – the top 3 spots are solid – CC, Pineda, Nova.

  19. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 9:07 am

    i’d start the season :
    sabathia, kuroda, , nova, hughes, and garcia.

    pineda woud be ace up my sleeve at triple a while he was mastering a plus change up.

    i’d watch how nova and hughes do, and adjust for injuries.

    when and if pettitte is ready, i’d make another decision then on who has to leave.

    if everyone is healthy and pitching well, i’d deal garcia later when teams are short pitching and have to come to the yankees.

  20. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 9:11 am

    “Do you really see the yankees getting rid of a 27 year old hughes in 2013,if he has a 3.0 era,1.10 whip,just because we have other pitchers,and because of the new cba?”

    if hughes were slowed down in coming up to the majors like i advocated all along as far back as 2007, the yankes wouldn’t be having a problem with what to do with hughes in 2013 would they?

    if they slow down pineda, they’ll defer that problem too won’t they?

    of course that could be said for nova too though he’s a bit older.

  26. mick March 25th, 2012 at 9:27 am

    without freddy as the long man you can bring an extra pitcher or position player.
    freddy would still be the long man as the 5th, as with rain and off days he might get 2-3 starts.

  27. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 9:28 am

    “i have a funny feeling you might be right, but nova could be the odd man out. he’s proven he can handle it.”

    there will likely be someone who points that out on the management decision making process that nova would take it the best because he’s so mentally tough.

    of course, that mental toughness is why someone else at the table will probably say he should stay in the rotation.

    nova reminds of old time yankees who weren’t the stars with the high ceilings like a ford, or mantle, or maris, but more like a tony kubek, or moose skowron or roy white. these guys handle the ny pressure and go about their business year in and year out and put up solid numbers over a long career.

  28. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 9:30 am

    Randy,

    Still in bed. I drank last night. :lol: I volunteered at a gluten-free expo in Asheville, NC yesterday and the marketing guy for Woodchuck Cider (a gluten-free beverage made in Vermont) gave me a half case leftover from the stash he brought for sampling and purchase.

    When I wake up I’m gonna do steak and eggs – pastured ground beef fried in lard with scrambled eggs.

    Zero carbs.

  31. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 9:48 am

    “When I wake up I’m gonna do steak and eggs – pastured ground beef fried in lard with scrambled eggs.

    Zero carbs.”

    bret-

    now most people on the blog would freak at the thought of cooking with pure lard .

    i was listening to an NPR piece a few weeks ago that had high level chefs talking about how lard is a secret ingredient they use and that lard is making a big comeback.

  32. pkyankfan69 March 25th, 2012 at 9:50 am

    I would be shocked if the rotation is not:

    CC – Kuroda – Nova – Pineda – Hughes (Not necessarily in that order.)

    Garcia is destined to be the long man whether he likes it or not.

    When Pettitte is ready you reevaluate based on performance/health of the current rotation.

  33. tomingeorgia March 25th, 2012 at 9:51 am

    Biscuits, pie crust and fried chicken all need lard.

    just in case, someone is interested in bret’s healthy breakfast.

  35. randy l. March 25th, 2012 at 10:00 am

    “Biscuits, pie crust and fried chicken all need lard.”

    the weird thing is that crisco was supposedly the scientific, modern, and healthy new thing, but the reality is that it kills people and nothing could be worse.

    crisco may be to health what sabermetrics is to baseball :)

  36. Bret The Hitman March 25th, 2012 at 10:01 am

    Randy,

    Not all fats are created equal.

    I render my own lard from pork strips cut from locally raised, pastured hogs…so the fatty acid profile is not so high in feedlot fats typical of supermarket meats.

    Whenever you cook in unsaturated vegetable oil, you create trans fats. But Crisco doesn’t want you to know that and neither do the big food companies that package all of their processed foods with unsaturated, unstable, volatile, highly oxidized vegetable seed oils.

    But I avoid carbs like the plague. Fat fuel is the primary energy source for our species. We are fat-burning machines (unless overloaded with carbohydrates).

    Randy, That is a good plan but things don’t alway work out as planned. If Pineda is Pitching well he could be in the starting rotation instead. Garcia is the obvious first choice to trade but trades are about maximizing value. If somebody is willing to give significantly more value for Hughes, Nova or even Pineda you have to consider it and do whatever is best for the team. Anybody could be traded for the right price.

    Mulberry trees (Morus spp.) are deciduous with a variety of leaves on each tree that differ in size and shape. The trees offer autumn color and fruits that appear similar to blackberries. The fruitless kind, such as silkworm mulberry (M. alba), are often grown as backyard shade trees. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 and above. Like other trees, there are some disease and pests that can cause leaf drop and yellowing of leaves. are eel like insect pests that feed on roots, but can damage the entire mulberry tree. While they feed on roots, these pests create galls that make it difficult for the tree to take in water and nutrients. If these galls crack, it makes the tree susceptible to soil borne disease. The damage from nematodes also affects a mulberry tree’s leaves, causing symptoms such as yellowing of leaves, wilting of the plant and loss of vigor. Some types of control for nematodes include solarization, crop rotation and proper sanitation practices.

    Melissa McCartney: Enrichissement a beaucoup fait pour le captif; d’être quelque chose de quelques institutions ou des individus auraient offrir à un groupe restreint d’espèces à un mandataire et beaucoup parlé partie de l’élevage pour tous les taxons. Au zoo de Sacramento, nous prenons au sérieux l’enrichissement, les primates, le hoofstock, même les reptiles recevons enrichissement quotidien. Et il existe une multitude de façons dont nous pouvons ajouter l’enrichissement de la vie de l’animal au-delà de ce que les clients attendent généralement (comme les périphériques alimentaires ou des jouets pour les primates). Souvent, la meilleure façon de commencer est d’examiner le budget de l’activité pour une espèce à l’état sauvage. Girafes passent la plupart de leur temps de navigation pour la nourriture de sorte enrichissement pour eux est en grande partie construit autour de dessin sur la quantité de temps la dépense consommer leur nourriture. Les garder dans un groupe d’âges et de sexes mixtes fournit la stimulation sociale dont ils ont besoin. Élevage de comportement et le conditionnement opérant nous permet de garder le exercé aussi bien mentalement. C’est toujours impressionnant de voir les nouvelles façons soigneurs viennent avec de la garder le stimulée et en prise avec leur environnement l’ingéniosité me surprend souvent. Plusieurs fois, nous nous trouvons à essayer des choses qui ne fonctionnent pas; l’éviter le jouet ou un appareil ou le chargeur. Et tandis que nous ne pouvons pas répéter l’enrichissement, pour le temps qu’ils y avaient accès, même évitement peut être nouveau et excitant. Ils peuvent utiliser plus de leur exposition à rester à l’écart d’un élément nouveau, ils ont peur. Un chargeur peut être trop difficile et l’animal devient frustré, mais pendant ce temps ils étaient actifs et engagés dépit de ne pas atteindre une récompense. Il ya un niveau de dépendance exotiques en captivité ont sur leurs gardiens que la plupart des employés du zoo sont très conscients de: notre principale responsabilité est de fournir, et pas seulement le strict minimum mais le meilleur possible. Un programme d’enrichissement bien développé est devenu la norme dans la plupart des zoos, et à juste titre.
