The rotation and bullpen are full of questions: Can CC Sabathia rebound? How will Masahiro Tanaka fair against a major league line-up? Is it possible for Ivan Nova to maintain his end of the...

Kendry Morales?

Why not? It looks more and more like Brett Gardner is going to be traded. He should get a least a top prospect @ SS or 2B or 3B. It is possible that Brett could net a #3 starter. Hard to imagine...
