Morning Bits: Rotation, Pettitte, Joba, Valentine, Warren

Good morning everyone.  It’s Friday and I couldn’t be any happier (well besides my march madness bracket being blown up from last night’s games).  Enjoy the weekend all. Let’s get right to the links…

* The New York Post reports that the Yankees are still uncertain who will fill the last three spots in the rotation.

* The Daily News mentions that Pettitte is on the fast track to return.  He also throws a bullpen today.

* Bradley from the Star Ledger writes about how the bullpen will get better once Joba returns.

* From the let’s look to start a feud department: Bobby Valentine said the Yankees were not courteous for walking off the field in a tie in last night’s game.

* From Mlb.com: Unheralded Warren held his own against the Red Sox.

  1. What is going to happen with Maxwell? He is playing well enough to make the team, but there doesn’t appear to be a spot for him. I think he is out of options so the Yanks will lose him if he doesn’t make the team. Hall is in the same boat. I would think Girardi is thinking long and hard about these 2 players, add to that Wise. All these players will be playing in the bigs this year, it’s just for what team. The weak hitting of Ibanez and Chavez have compounded the problem in my eyes. Most of the people on this site feel the same way as far as I can tell. What would you do?

    • If i had to pick of the 3 I’d keep Hall. I love what he has showed so far. Wish the Yankees wouldn’t have resigned Chavez. We all know he is a ticking time bomb with an injury.

      • I also like Hall.He is the most versital and seems to have something to prove.His career isn’t over like Chavez and Ibanez.I was not for signing either of the EZ GUYS.
        I have a feeling the Yanks will stash Wise in AAA FOR AWILE.
        Maxwell is the tough one.He is so atheltic and in a short sample can at times look like the next coming,but the guy strikes out way too much and has more head movement than any major league hitter than I can remember.There’s no place for him and he could be claimed. Yanks have better OF options on the way.Zoilo Almonte and I like Dickerson better.Plus the new kid Cole Garner gives depth at AAA.

  2. I don’t think Joba will be back this year…check out today’s lineup to find out why…
