    Cashman has refused to comment on the possibility, and an unnamed “source” within the organization claims they arn’t seriously considering it. Take that how you will.

  • Chris

    I’m not sure, but David Cone and Al Leiter may already have plans to be at the game. Just call them down and let them pitch.

    Why not just throw Eiland out there?

    • JohnnyC

      I could see him calling time and having a conference with himself on the mound, telling himself to bear down, throw strikes, and then pat himself on the rump. I don’t think he’d blame the pitching coach for poor pitch selection though.

      • Joey

        only if Girardi will catch!

  • Bryan

    Is it too late to re-sign Clemens?

  • dkidd

    irabu?

  • pat

    hideki irabu has been keeping his arm in shape throwing bottles of alcohol at bartenders

    • Joey

      Hey if he is still hitting the bartender after drinking 30 beers then his command must be excellent, if not perfect, and somehow it seems clutch. Someone get Cash-money his phone number!

  • Axl

    We might as well see what Jim Abbott is up to these days…

  • bill

    Its a joke that Victor Zambrano is even in the Yankee organization. I would much rather see Aceves on Saturday. The season is lost anyway, and now, I’m paying more attention to the minor leagues and 2009 than I am the big club. Theyre showing no signs of consistent play that would lead me to believe they can make a run in September.

  • Rubin

    Give him the start, if he does well, trade him for Kazmir!

    Realistically, give Hughes the start, and see how he does. You gave Kennedy another start, why dont you give the better one of the 2, Hughes, another start.

    • radnom

      Because he might not be at full strength yet. Hughes will get another shot this year that is not in question.

    “Jimmy Key? What’s he like, 45? I could hit him …”

    • pat

      hahah sadly that kid never made it out of the minors again

  • A.D.

    I doubt this Zambrano has 13 innings with the Yankee orginization so far, more likely that its Pavano

  • A.D.

    On a side note, Brett Wallace has already been promoted to AA

  • bill

    Can anyone tell me why Victor Zambrano is here?

    • pat

      veteran reclamation project. sidney ponson ring any bells?

    • steve (different one)

      Can anyone tell me why Victor Zambrano is here?

      can anyone tell me why you so angry about something that has little to no consequences?

      • pat

        enlarged medullah oblongata?

      • bill

        The consequences are that Victor Zambrano will get absolutely bombed. The only time “Victor Zambrano” and “Yankees” should be in the same sentence is when you say “Victor Zambrano was lit up by the Yankees.” Are you happy that Zambrano is here? And by the way, Ponson is better than Zambrano ever was and I’m not angry, I’m just disgusted.

        • pat

          according to you the season is lost anyway so whats the difference?

          • Setty

            Great point

          • bill

            If the season is over I would rather see young pitchers (except for Ian Kennedy) who are pert of the Yankees future plans, not V

            • pat

              well unfortunately none of them are close enough to the majors for that to bea feasible so ur stuck with zambrano

              • bill

                So youre telling me that Victor Zambrano and his 7.31 ERA in the minors this year is a better otion than younger pitchers like Hughes and Aceves? That doesnt make any sense. Meaningless September baseball is a time to gauge the talent in your system and give some prospects a shot, not a time for embarassing your organization and their fans with veteran reclamation projects who have ABSOLUTELY ZERO chance of succedding or being part of future plans.

  • Baseballnation

    I’m down for jimmy Key. Just as long as someone tells him when he comes in to “pitch like Jamie Moyer.”

  • Jeremy

    You can add Zambrano to two Yankee lists: Starters, and Ways to Lose.

    Can we move on to using randomly selected fans as starters next?

  • pat

    hey mike apparently that dude at tiger thoughts reverse engineered the Elias type a type B formula and Pudge will only be Type b

      If he has even a halfway decent month he can shoot up the rankings past Ramon Hernandez and Jason Vairtek. No need to fret over the rankings when the scores are so close in August.

      • pat

        i was more wondering about the feasibility of “cracking the code”, but yes i also thought it very strange pudgemeister would be a B

    I can fix him in 10 minutes. Just give me a shovel.

  • jsbrendog

    seriously, bring back abbot, he looked jacked at old timer’s day

  • E-ROC

    What? No Eric Milton? What about Gator?

    I wonder if Cashman would sign Mark Mulder in the winter since he likes projects.

  • dkidd

    george w. bush tends to throw well at the stadium

    • bill

      He would do better than Zambrano

  • jsbrendog

    “I’m sitting there watching him, and I’m thinking: This is a major league pitcher, I know I can do this,” said Lee, who had admired Pavano from afar. “Not to downgrade him, but once I saw him live and in person doing what he was doing, I knew that I could do it.”

    haha cliff lee even knew pavano was a hack on les expos

  • Jorge Steinbrenner

    Whoever suggested flipping Zambrano for Scott Kazmir after a couple of starts had the right idea.

    So, I typed a text to a girl I used to see
    Sayin’ that I chose this cutie pie with whom I want to be, and
    I apologize if this message gets you down;
    Then I CC’d every girl that I’d see-see round town, and
    Hate to see y’all frown but I’d rather see her smilin’
    Wetness all around me, true, but I’m no island
    Peninsula, maybe, makes no sense, I know; crazy
    Give up all this puddy cat that’s in my lap, no looking back;
    Spaceships don’t come equipped with rear-view mirrors, they dip
    As quick as they can, the atmosphere is now ripped
    I’m so like a pip, I’m glad it’s night
    So the light from the sun would not burn me on my bum
    When I shoot the moon, high jump the broom…

    ————————————

    So, my beloved Jets swing a deal to bring Brett Favre onboard, giving us a real offense for the first time in years and enabling us to dump Chad Pennington, the Melky Cabrera of NFL QB’s. Then, I get married to the most beautiful girl I’ve ever met, and take off for a wonderful 8 day Caribbean cruise. Sun, sand, surf, frozen drinks, all the food I can eat, a hot girl in a small bikini, and no job, no responsibilities, no emails… the world is my oyster (and I ate a bunch of those too) and, to boot, my Jets are relevant again.

    And then I come home and find out that my Yankees have left me a steaming turd sandwich on my doorstep…

    Giese, Ponson and Rasner all in the rotation at the same time. Joba out indefinitely. Wang out, period, end of sentence. Pudge banged up. A 3-7 road trip. A wild-pitch Mo loss to the friggin Royals. Phil Hughes impersonating Rick Vaughn. IPK up, IPK shelled, IPK down. Crazy Carl and The Wrong Zambrano battling it out for the title of Most Improbable Yankee to Start and August Game And Somehow Be A Better Option Than All Others. Joe Girardi reading from the C. Montgomery Burns book of 84-year-old Johnny “Frankenstein” Damon in center-fucking-field. DOGS AND CATS, LIVING TOGETHER?!?!?!?!

    MULTIPLE INTERROBANGS!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    I’m trying real, real hard to be a shepherd, here, Ringo, but you fuckers are trying my patience.

    • bill

      That was …. interesting

  • bill

    dkidd had the right idea. Give Dubya a call. He cant be worse than Zambrano. Dubya would probably pitch better than the job hes doing as president right now.
