With the New York Yankees having pieced together their rotation in 2011, it’s a certainty that they will be looking for more stable answers from their starting pitching.

One of the names that have popped up in all the speculation is Jair Jurrjens, the Atlanta Braves upstart young pitcher who impressed many around the league with great numbers last season.

Here’s why the Yanks should definitely make that deal.
