Luis Ayala is still looking for a job. This time last year, the Yankees signed Ayala to a minor league contract after a roughly half a decade of ineffectiveness. He pitched his way on to the roster and stuck there for the entire year. He pitched 56 innings with an ERA of 2.09, a K/9 [...]

Like the lineup, the 2011 bullpen is of little concern. While I’m not sure it can “make up” for the rotation as some have suggested, it should still perform well.
Mariano Rivera: The only question is how much longer can he keep doing it? He saw a bit of a drop in strikeout [...]
