4 STARTERS THE YANKS SHOULD CONSIDER

Now that C.M. Wang is done for the year and will miss at least half of 2010 the Yankees should not only be looking to fortify the 2009 rotation, but look for stability into 2010.

With the non-waiver trade deadline approaching (Friday, 4:00 pm EDT) here are my ideas for four starting pitchers the Yankees should be able to deal for if the clubs are looking to dump salary and the Yankees are willing to assume said salary.

JASON MARQUIS, Rockies: 12-7, 3.47. Due remainder of $9.87 mil for 2009, free agent for 2010.

AARON COOK, Rockies: 10-3, 3.87. Due remainder of $8.75 mil for 2009 then $21.25 through 2011 with a $11 mil option for 2012 or a half mil buy out.

BRONSON ARROYO, Reds: 10-10, 5.17. Due remainder of $9.5 mil for 2009 then $11 mil in 2010 followed by a club option at $11 mil or a $2 mil buy out for 2011.

PAUL MAHOLM, Pirates: 6-5, 4.70. Due remainder of $2 mil for 2009 then $10.25 mil through 2011 with a $9.75 club option or a 0.75 mil buy out for 2012.

Out of those four I would definitely go with Arroyo. Plus, he seems to fit right in, now that he think even he might have take a banned substance

Marquis looks to be the best fit. Cook is overrated and overpaid.
