#yankees r dangling phil hughes in hopes of acquiring a hitter. rival exec predicts they'll succeed. http://t.co/VRZIh5VzKEIn 2007-2008, the Yankees had a collection of 3 of the hottest pitching prospects in baseball, the future core of the rotation that would help usher in the next great Yankee dynasty.

When the rotation starts to trend downward in the next year or 2, this will end up being one of, if not the biggest reason why.
