Quick Hit: Shane Greene & The Plan For The Pen

Have no fear Yankees family I have a plan for Shane Greene, Chase Whitley, and the rest of the New York Yankees bullpen. It has been announced that Greene will make his next scheduled start on Saturday, which is great news that I have been clamoring for since last night. Chase Whitley may be hitting an innings wall and will basically become useless in the starting rotation for the rest of the season so put him in the bullpen.

Designate Jim Miller for assignment, if we lose him oh well you need to give the kids a shot anyway, and clear a 25 man roster spot and 40 man roster spot. The rest I leave up to the people who are getting paid to make these decisions, namely Brian Cashman, as there are a plethora of options to choose from. The Yankees are playing an outfielder "short" after designating Alfonso Soriano for assignment and can call up Zoilo Almonte, who is already on the 40 man roster, Jose Pirela, or Adonis Garcia to take over. Robert Refsnyder has played the outfield before but I prefer to keep him in the infield. The Yankees also finally have a window to bring in a true first base backup in Kyle Roller with their new found roster flexibility.

Just a week ago we were basically stuck with what we had barring a shake up, which we may be in the middle of, or a trade or two. Now the options seems endless and that makes me happy. I have a plan, hopefully the Yankees do too.
