It's a long season gentlemen- only April :-)

I think you will find that both Gordon and Gonzalez are going to be very valuable releivers before too long.

But if you have a quality alternative on a week to week basis, it might make sense to wait a bit until they straighten out their games.

From your mouth to the fantasy Gods' ears.

Waiting on these 2 to get their act together is painful right now.

I just dropped this in a post on Mussina, but look at the Yankees next five series: Tampa, Oakland, Seattle, Oakland, Seattle. Based on this, I am holding on to Gordan in the hopes he can turn it around or that something happens to Rivera during this time span, knowing that the chances of him getting lit up are dminished against these relatively anemic offenses.

great insight!

I agree, if Gordon can turn it around this season it's probably going to happen in the next few weeks. Then if he is still pitching like ^#%#....well he'll be off my roster in a Flash ;-)

I was listening to the Yankee pre-game on the radio on Saturday. They asked Torre about Gordon & Rivera's struggles. His reply was simply, "If I have to worry about those two, we're not going to be in the hunt at the end." Or something to that effect. His point was that he's not terribly worried about them turning it around.
