The RAB Radio Show: November 19, 2010

Yankees release Jon Albaladejo
Larry Rothschild named new Yankee pitching coach

It’s been a fun inaugural week, and we close it with perhaps the most newsworthy day. Derek Jeter has an offer on the table. He’ll surely reject it, but that won’t stop Mike and I discussing what this means for the negotiations.

Then we move on to Mo, who reportedly wants a two-year deal. That sounds fine. It does, however, bring up an interesting point. How differently would we be viewing these Jeter negotiations had he produced another elite season?

Bye bye Jon Albaladejo. Please don’t say hello to J.C. Romero.

And, finally, to cap the week, we bring you: The Mystery Pitcher.

    Good show, guys. Finally, the mystery pitcher has been revealed – though he isn’t exactly a surprise choice.

    • mbonzo

      Yea I thought someone said it wouldn’t be Chris Carpenter. He’d be a great pick-up if it doesn’t cost them a top 5 prospect.

        ok, thats what I thought I heard but didn’t believe it.

      I just listened to the podcast as I did other things and seemed to have zoned out during the mystery pitcher thing. Who was it, cause I can’t find that section during the podcast for some reason?

      • mbonzo

        Chris Carpenter, they talk about it the last 5 minutes.

  • mikeH

    no thanks to that mystery pitcher. I’d rather take Jorge DeLaRosa

    • FIPster Doofus

      De la Rosa has too many red flags.

      -Is his control good? No.

      -Does he go deep in games? No.

      -Is he durable? No.

      -Has he ever pitched in the AL? No.

      He’s too big a risk on a long-term deal. Carpenter as a one-year stopgap is a much more palatable option.

      • JAG

        Well, he HAS pitched in the AL…technically. He pitched to a 1.6 WHIP in 178 innings in 06 and 07 for the Royals. His full year starting in 07 produced a 79 ERA+ in 130 innings, so…yeah. He’s pitched, but not in a way that inspires any kind of confidence.

  • mbonzo

    Would you rather have Pettitte or Carpenter? GO!

  • First Time Poster

    Hate to say it but totally called Carptenter as the mystery pitcher ;). Is there still going to be a post?
