Because if someone reports it, it has to be true...

Brian Cashman: New York Yankees acquiring pitcher now unlikely
For some definitions of "unlikely"...
Having finished second, or maybe third, in the Cliff Lee sweepstakes, the Yankees are prepared to go into the 2011 season with a pitching rotation of CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Phil Hughes , with the remaining spots filled out by youngsters, many of whom have never pitched above the Triple-A level.
Right. They're "prepared" to go into the season with 2/5 (if that) of a Major League rotation, running the realistic risk of being 10 games out on Memorial day, despite having the largest payroll in the game. Totally believable. Who could think otherwise?
So for now, the Yankees are standing pat.
Key phrase: "for now." Pardon me for thinking that the rotation might look a little bit different when the season starts than this article projects...
