I’m back again after a short hiatus to bring you the second RAB Trade Deadline Podcast. This time around, we talk about the CC Sabathia situation (so much easier to type without the periods), and what it means to the starting pitching market.
Should the Yanks go after a starter? Probably. But after running down the names of possibly available pitchers, the pickings don’t look to fruitful. I do stumble across one interesting, albeit risky, name, and attempt to convince everyone that Joe Blanton would be a terrible idea. Are there any names I missed which might be interesting?
Finally, it’s onto the outfield situation, which might solve itself once Johnny Damon returns to the lineup, and will be helped if Hideki Matsui can return later this month. Barry Bonds’s name is mentioned a few times here.
