The locks for the rotation (in no order) are Andy Pettitte, Chien-Ming Wang, Phil Hughes, and Ian Kennedy. I wish Joba was a lock but for obvious reason. Since he has not started a regular season big league game I can see why. He needs to get to where he can bring 7 innings. By doing that he and Mussina can switch off spots in the rotation. Example, Joba pitches on July 5 and then when it would be his turn on the 10 it would be Mussina's turn. During his stretch without starting he can relieve. It would be a good way to stretch out his innings. Hopefully he turns out along with the others. Let's hope for a good season. GO YANKS!
