Yanks to release Quantrill?

Paul Quantrill, RP NYY

News: According to the New York Daily News, Paul Quantrill might be released by the Yankees soon. "I don't know how we can get him more innings," manager Joe Torre said. "His stuff hasn't lost anything; he's just too fat right now on the plate."

Analysis: Quantrill allowed four runs on four hits over 2/3 of an inning in Sunday's 9-3 loss to Minnesota. His ERA for the season swelled to 8.02.


Not earth breaking news but we will see how this unfolds. Karsay was shown the door next is this bum

Aside from the first half of last year, all Quantrill has done for us is come in and give peoples' arms a rest. He's good for at least a half a dozen 84 MPH meatballs per outing. Maybe they'll drop him and bring someone in who can do something...

At least I can stop worrying that the Yanks will sign Danny Graves ;-D

They need to move one of the bum starting pitchers to the pen.

I think Steinbrenner needs to read Moneyball

I assume Wang will move to the pen when Wright gets back, even though he's basically been the best SP on the team this year. Steinbrenner won't want to show his stupidness on signing Wright like everyone else knew it was during the time of the signing by moving him into the pen for 7 mill a year.

Who will replace him in the pen? Wang wouldn't make sense...

Wang needs to be a starter or they need to put him in when the yankees let up more than a run in the first 2 innings...

I'm tired of seeing 5 er's scored by the 3rd inning...cut it to 2 and put wang in.

I know, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did. Wright or Brown are the smart options, but that'd be too easy...

Colter Bean or Procter, perhaps?
