I hope he stays with the Yankees and as a starter. I have him on my bench. But somebody has to go when Mussina and Brown come back.

That would have to kill any velocity he has. Don't worry, the league will adjust to that funky pitching stance.

Not going to the bullpen barring injury or a serious meltdown. Who's pitching better than him on the team right now? Nobody, imo. Getting Mussina and Brown back healthy with both Contreras and Lieber also pitching well would be a nice problem to have but chances are somebody's going to be hurt or pitching crummy. Where it gets interesting is if the Yanks trade for RJ or another starter without giving up one of our starters. Then it's really crowded and El Duque going to the bullpen becomes plausible. Would make sense to include Lieber in any trade for for RJ.

On a side note, I was ecstatic when we signed El Duque. The timing of everything really couldn't be more perfect. At this stage of his career, I think he's a huge injury risk going through a full season. But.....if we can just get him to the postseason healthy (and it's only a couple months away), he can really dominate.

Right. That $500K deal really scared the Red Sox. :-t

He really went crazy today, but that's not the typical El Duque of the regular season.

If his stats up to this point are any indication, he's mediocre at best.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
