Where’s El Duque when you need him?

OK, I don’t even think the great El Duque could’ve beaten Cliff Lee last night. Still, he’d be a nice guy to have around for a Game 4 start, right? Well, that may not be out of the question next year.

MLB.com’s Bill Ladson is reporting the great El Duque is looking to play baseball in 2011.

I wouldn’t mind trying another four-year, $6.6 million deal on him. Brian Cashman said it was the Yankees’ best signing ever. I’m pretty sure it won’t be as big a mistake as any of these contracts.

Please understand this is a light-hearted post following a painful defeat last night. El Duque is 45 years old as of last Monday. All the Yankees need is another washed up starter.

But to be fair to one of my all-time favorite players, his last time in the majors was 2007 with the Mets: 9-5, 3.72 ERA. And his last three years in the minors: 6-4, 2.58 ERA.

I’m just sayin’.
