Quick Hit: Excited About The Bottom Of The Rotation

"Did You See That Tanaka Start Tuesday night?"

Isn't it kind of sad, and at the same time very exciting, to be more pumped up to watch the bottom half of the New York Yankees rotation than it is to watch the top half? I think I speak for everybody that if I had to pick just two games to watch in a week it would be the two games that Masahiro Tanaka and Michael Pineda are pitching in. No offense to CC Sabathia and Hiroki Kuroda, they are awesome and the anchors of the staff, but they just aren't the big ticket item in the Yankees rotation anymore.

While it is kind of sad to think about all the millions of dollars being paid to Kuroda and Sabathia to take a back seat to the  two young guys it is also very exciting for now and the future of the Yankees rotation. In a few years Tanaka and Pineda will be at the top and the roles will be reversed with Sabathia. Either way, now or for the future, the Yankees rotation possibilities look bright and that is great news for the Yankees organization and especially their fans.
