You must have a short memory. Last year's Yankees staff was in worse shape.

By the way, the Rays are better than most people think and thus far have outpitched everyone in the division except NY.

The Yankees didn't have three pitchers as good as Moore, Cobb, , and Smyly to lose last year.

You are correct because 80% of NY's original starting rotation was lost for most the season.

Who were the injured pitchers who were better than Cobb, Moore, and Smyly?

I don't know because injured pitchers cannot be properly evaluated. But I think you have two or three pitchers who are as good as the three you mention. And the Rays are bona fide playoff contenders whether you realize it or not. The only question is how quickly the young offensive players mature.

That's my point, the Yankees didn't lose anyone big. Unlike the Rays, who are out their three best starters, plus their closer.

I thought Tanaka, Pineda and Nova were pretty big.

anyone know of current stats wins per total team salary? I bet the Rays and possibly the Twins would lead that category hands down....maybe the Astros?

I see this thread has pretty much died...but I understand at the moment, since the Rays are in the middle of a 11 game losing streak--which appears to be putting the kibosh on the season...
