The RAB Radio Show: January 3, 2011


After some time off, the RAB Radio Show returns with some storylines to start 2011. We start at the most logical place: Andy Pettitte. We should hear something this week, and if he returns we’ll have Andy Pettitte Day on the show.

If Pettitte does not return, the Yankees will have a few options. Mike and I talk about the idea of finding a reliever now, to help shore up the bullpen, while they wait for the right starter to become available. Then we talk about which reliever we’d prefer, Soria or Soriano.

Finally, do any of the youngsters have a chance at breaking camp in the rotation? If you’re wondering about my answer, I repeat it a half-dozen times.

    that extra reliever that could go 3-4 innings was Alfredo Aceves. Any word on us gettting him back?

    either way I’d bring on Soriano

    remember in the last two seasons we always had a shut down setup man leading to Mo. In 2009 Brian Bruney couldnt get the job done so it was passed on to Phil Hughes who sported like a 1.93 ERA out of the pen, and in 2010 it was Kerry Wood who was the pivotal bridge to Mo with his 0.60 ERA

    if he returns we’ll have Andy Pettitte Day on the show.

    Does this mean I’ll call in and shriek repeatedly?

      I got Pettitte’s autograph when I followed the team to Tampa two years ago. All I had was a Donald Duck baseball I got from Disney world and he laughed and signed it when he saw it. Good times. Now the signature is smudged and ruined because of the ball material. But my Phil Coke autograph is alive and well.
