The Yankees on making Joba and Phil super relievers: "No (bleeping) way"

That idea from Dave Pinto from this morning? That one about making Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes 100-inning a piece relievers, thereby allowing the team to have a 10-man staff and add a bench player or two? Well, Baseball Prospectus’ Will Carroll asked someone in the Yankees front office about it:

Pinto (@statsguru) mentions Yankees going with 10 pitchers. Talk with “high level source” said “no bleeping way.” Too bad.

Alas.
