Duchscherer Signs with the Orioles

Strike up the band, as another potential candidate for the Yankees questionable rotation has headed for greener pastures. While I cannot in good faith say that Duchscherer would have been the answer, I am still wholly baffled by the Yankees (in)actions on the free agent market.

According to Dan Connolly, Duchscherer is guaranteed$700,000, plus $400,000 if and when he makes the 25-man roster. In order to make the $4.5 MM figure cited by Crasnick, he will have to make thirty starts.

That seems fairly reasonable to me - though, as was the case with Greinke, perhaps the Yankees know something about his mental fortitude to which the fans are not privy.
