Chad Gaudin to the Yankees

Aug 7, 2009, 8:40 AM EDT

Keeping in mind that last Friday’s trading deadline wasn’t actually a deadline, the Yankees have acquired Chad Gaudin from the Padres for the famous player to be named later (man, he gets dealt a lot). Gaudin is 4-10 with a 5.13 ERA, though his K-rate is strong.  If he can just rein the wildness, he’ll be a pretty useful starter.

This could — and should — spell the end of the Sergio Mitre experiment, as not even a first place team like the Yankees can tolerate a four-inning starter like him for long.  Personally I’d think about stretching Phil Hughes out for the role — he’s being wasted by throwing only 10 pitches an appearance — but given how much Yankees fans and writers like their high-profile setup men, that’s not going to happen.  And of course, if it ain’t broke . . .

    Craig, I know you’re kind of joking here, but there’s no Phil debate like there was a Joba debate. Yankee fans and writers for the most part agree that he should be a starter. There’s no “Hughes to the ‘pen” movement like there was for Joba.
