Poll Results: Acquire A StarterPosted: June 6, 2011
So the results are in and according to the fans, the most important position for the Yankees to pursue at the trade deadline would be a starting pitcher. Although Boone Logan isn’t getting it done out of the bullpen and Nick Swisher got off to a bad start, acquiring a starter should definitely be the main goal. Rob and I talked about this a little on this weekend’s podcast. We said that Bartolo Colon and Freddy Garcia might not end the rest of the year and who knows what we’re gonna get from Ivan Nova. Even when Phil Hughes gets back, it’s always better to have a surplus of pitching rather than too little. As for the other two positions, if Boone Logan continues to disappoint, you can always try Randy Flores, who is lurking down in Scranton and Nick Swisher is starting to heat up at least power-wise.
