08:48 AM ET 01.11 | Though it is unclear whether they see him as a starter or reliever, the Yankees are reportedly pursuing Justin Duchscherer. Duchscherer, 33, has a career record of 33-25 with a 3.13 ERA in eight seasons with the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers. He made the American League All-Star team as a reliever with Oakland in 2005 and again as a starter in 2008. Duchscerer overcame clinical depression issues during his time in Oakland, but he's thrown only 28 innings over the past two seasons because of a variety of injuries.

I think having a Yankee pitcher named **** would be epic. The Yankees could pitch him in a doubleheader with Colon, and the FN interns would really have a field day.

How about I pitch for the Yanks. I am only a softball pitcher in an over 40 league. I am sure I could get one over the plate. Maybe!

Learn to throw butterflies (a.k.a. knuckleballs) and you can have a career in MLB.

You hope the Yankees get a guy who has battled clinical depression and has been too injured to pitch the last two seasons? Is it really that bad?

If you are refering to the daily rumor mill then yes.

Who ever they get the media will not be happy with. I remember when Pettite was pitching really well and the media was calling for his head. All the guy did was win ball games.

Or the Mets. They have a penchant for signing players with injuries to huge contracts.
