NYY: Chien-Ming Wang to the DL Tim Redding to the Bronx

Tiger Wang isn't as good a pitcher, as he has looked so far. Make no mistake though, he has pitched like a champ. It's a shame that the couldn't stay healthy, but it's not a huge surprise as he has had injury problems throughout his pro career.

The Yanks will use Tim Redding until Pavano comes off the DL, and likely Sturtze until Brown comes back. The Yankees have traditionally done a piss poor job of outing together organizational depth - and this year it has really came back to bite them. When you build your rotation on injury prone starters you need AAA depth, the Yankees don't have it.
