This Just In

The Yankees have one lefty in their entire pitching staff, and his name is Andy Pettitte.

Their entire bullpen is comprised of right-handed pitchers and with that short porch in right field, the Yankees better get someone fast. I don't know how deep the free agency pool is for left-handed relievers, but there are only two southpaws that have even been invited to spring training to battle for a spot on the team. Their names? Heath Phillips and Billy Traber.

Apparently Kei Igawa, Chase Wright and Sean Henn are going to have to anchor the Yankees out of the pen, acting as the left-handed specialists against guys like David Ortiz and Travis Hafner. Scary.
