What is the Yankee rotation going to look like in 2009? Mike Mussina announced his retirement. Andy Pettitte is a free agent. The holy trinity of youth (Hughes, Kennedy and Chamberlain) only managed 29 starts between them in ’08 and compiled a less-than-impressive 5.6 ERA. That leaves Chien-Ming Wang as “the man” and he only made 15 starts last season.
The obvious answer is free agency. In the true Yankee way, Hank will break the bank trying to acquire at least one of the big name starters on the market. The Chicago Tribune has an interesting article on the outlook in New York if he were to go 0-for-3.
Remember when they mattered?
