What else are they going to do? They don't want to trade away the future and who in their right mind could imagine a team lossing 4 of 6 original starters to the DL?
RJ was hurt
Pavano is hurt
Wang is hurt
Brown is hurt
Wright is hurt
even Sean Henn is hurt
Mussina has been the only guy that's been ok healthwise. Losing 67% of your starting staff for a long time is not something any team plans for.
Peavy was hurt, Woody was hurt, Eaton is hurt, Redding was/is hurt, May was hurt...it happens to plenty of teams. I agree that they can't trade away the future, but I have a feeling that a lot of Yankees prospects are overrated.
Um, there's a huge difference between the 15 day DL and what has happened to the Yankees. Brown's career may be over; Wang could need rotator cuff surgery putting him out for the year, Wright has been out all season and doesn't figure to be back again for a long time. Pavano has been out far longer than his 15 days. That's 4 guys out, 5 if you count Henn who was the next option all at the same time.
Please don't insult everyone's intelligence by comparing the Pad's starting injuries to the Yankees'.
Eaton has been out for quite awhile. The loss of him to the Padres is much more than the loss of Pavano to the Yankees. Few Yankees fans even wanted Brown around so it's hard to complain about his injury. Wang has missed around 4-5 starts, Woody has missed 5. Both teams' staffs have been in shambles.
Your homerism never ceases to amaze.
Do you not realize that Brown and Wang are likely out for the entire year now? Wright has been out all season, but I guess he doesn't count for anything
