Comments on: Yankees: You choose the fifth starter competition winner http://ladylovespinstripes.com/yankees-choose-starter-competition-winner/ Baseball from a lady's perspective.

I hate seeing Phelps in the pen only because going from starting to reliever can cripple young pitcher, hence Hughes & Joba. But Phelps' arm is needed in the pen, so going to Triple A is not an option. I just worry if Pineda struggles, Griardi will start playing musical pitchers again. Also, it would be nice if the Yankees announce Pineda's innings limit so the speculation is not hogging the headlines for months.

Pineda's upside and age make him my choice for the 5th starter also. I'm not down on Phelps and Warren but they are what they are, back end starters or relievers who can provide multi-inning appearances. Nuno has pitched lights out, displaying some veteran pitching savvy well beyond his years. If he keeps it up at AAA he will surely get a call at some point for a spot start or more if somebody in the rotation needs DL time.

I'm happy to have them all in the organization but Pineda has the highest ceiling and seems the best bet to perform somewhere near that level if healthy.
