I think there are several options, but...an injury or two away from trouble. Pax needs to figure it out. Is he hurting? Happ is useless at this point. Tank could be a bit more consistent.
    Dr, personally Iíd rather wait and see where the chips fall in 2020. Did Pax have a normal rehab type season after back surgery? He would have probably had a separate spring of 3-4 weeks and then about 3-5 starts in the minors before even jumping on a mound in the majors. But in 2020 teams are rushing some of their pitchers who were injured. There is only 60 games and urgency is there now.

    How many minor league starts did Paxton have in 2020?

    Like I said during a normal season he would have had 3-5 to see where he is.....

    I think we need to sit back and wait some. I guarantee you that Cashbox is waiting for at least 5 starts before making any sort of decision like revamping the rotation.

    Plus we are 8-1. If we we like the Mets or RedSox and their piss poor starts then maybe he might make decisions earlier but now he can afford to wait some with Happ and Pax.

    Were 8-1 but let's be honest other than Cole and Monty its been ugly.

    Our offense and BP are the reason why we're 8-1 not because our rotation has been dominant

    Also the trade deadline is 3 weeks away. They aren't going to have much time to evaluate or make changes/upgrades in such a short season.

    The biggest concern has to be Paxton, he has to be hurt IMO to have his velo down that much. Figuring out what's wrong with him and is he going to be healthy again this yr. If he's hurt I don't think thats something u can fill from within

    Also, letís see if we even get to the postseason first. Maybe Pax is in full form by then. Happ as well.

    Cashman wants Cole, Tanaka, Pax and Happ to be his postseason rotation. That is what he put his chips on. Let it play out some.

    Iíd rather tinker with a Hader trade to fortify the pen anyway. That is where games are decided now anyways as starting pitchers of this generation only go 5-6 innings.

    Green and his new Cb could be part of the answer to fix the rotation

    But Iím more concern with the loss of Betances and Kahnle. Who replaced those two?

    Betances, Green, Kahnle, Britton and Chap was our dream bullie and now 2/5 are gone.

    The 2020 MLB season is year like no other. Iím not going to get mad if we donít win the whole damn thing. There are too many unnatural roadblocks to deal with.

    What if Cole gets the Rona in Oct? Or we lose 3 big bats in the lineup because of the rona?

    Or what if we stay healthy and then face a NL team in the WS and their team all of sudden starts getting positive cases and wrecks their chances?

    Iím not going to worry too much about how the 2020 season goes unless the cases stay real low and MLB league gets to the postseason virtually unscathed.

    Our team is built for 162 anyway as we would wear down the opposition during the course of 162.

    Just relax and enjoy what baseball we have.

    Overall the league has stabilized some after the Marlins debacle.

    It is really up to the players to be disciplined to stay out of harms way and not do stupid things like going to bars or casinos.
    Mush i do think they need to call up Schmidt or let King take Happs place. He's not competitive as an MLB pitcher anymore. He's only the 3rd Yankee in the last 25yrs to walk 6 guys in 3 innings.

    While a completely agree this minute isn't the time to make a deal unless something falls into our lap we can't pass up. That said the trade deadline is only about 3 1/2 weeks away, so if they are going to make a move they have to start thinking about making a move.

    With Paxton barely breaking 90 and likely to miss sometime either because of injury or time off to get his mechanics right, German out for the regular season and Sevy gone we really need a strong #2 behind Cole IMO if we are going to get through the playoffs.

    Cole is fine, i'm positive Tank will get things figured out and Monty looks sharp but were going to need to have more than that if were going to be successful playing pretty much everyday AND get through the extra rounds of the playoffs.

    Gray, Bauer and Castillo

    Or

    Ours. Give me Cole and October Tanaka over their top 2.

    I'd take any of their guys over Paxton though.

    With Houston it was 12.5-13.5

    Has he already peaked with his career and is now on the downside of his career?

    Of course he has great stuff and can get by with less for a few years because it is so good but did we see the GREAT COLE with Houston and we just get the ordinary Cole who is still light years ahead of the garbage we have in the rotation?
    maybe he's not adapting well to the yankees trying to fix him and change what he did with houston.

    Most starters are 5 inn guys now. How does our pen scare you? We probably have the best bullpen in baseball yet again.

    If we just use Green, Zero, Zach and Chap.

    Why did Boone give that game away in Game 1?

    We are down 4-3 with time running out and he sends out a rookie. Green should have been used for multiple innings and see if they could of made a comeback. And of course we score 7 but that damn rookie got his *** handed to him as Boone bungled up another loss.

    7 inning game Aaron! You use Green in Game 1. You have to have urgency in every game with the shorten season. Now granted the playoff system is a fckn joke. There is zero incentive to win the Division. MLB just gives out playoff tickets to anybody now. Typical USA sports. Give trophies to everybody.
