If the Yankees didn't resign Garcia . . .

They could insert the following people as starters (pure speculation on my part)

  • David Phelps
  • Adam Warren
  • Hector Noesi
  • Joba Chamberlain (now it's dreamland territory)

Or they might be stuck with these guys as starters (again, pure speculation)

  • Sergio Mitre
  • Tom Alex Brian Gordon (remember him? Neither do I)
  • Andrew Brackman (probably a nice late-inning flamethrower, but starting? No thank you. Not until he learns four, not seven balls result in a walk how to throw strikes)
  • Jamie Moyer
  • Brett Favre Roger Clemens (hey, he never officially retired five times yet)

Of course, some of these people aren't even in the organization anymore and some others may end up in a different capacity, while a few might actually be a starter later on in the year. Thank goodness we've got Freddy there for now.

  1. For the Yankees' sake, Garcia's return is valuable, but the rotation still looks a little slim after Sabathia. I wouldn't be surprised to see them place a bid on Yu Darvish or, more likely, see about a couple of those free agent pitchers from Japan.
