FSL All-Star Game

The following players from the Yankees’ organization are on the All-Star roster for tonight’s game: Adam Warren, a 22-year old right-handed pitcher, is the starting pitcher for the FSL North. Warren has been spectacular in 2010, compiling a 6-4 record and 2.44 ERA in 11 starts. He has thrown 59 innings, allowing 51 hits while…More

Minors Report for 6/11/10 (Montero; Zolio Almonte; Slade Heathcott)

Tampa was off tonight. Scranton: (34-28, 2nd place) —————— Jesus Montero went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored but it wasn’t enough as Zack McAllister got crushed, 9-5. Montero is now on a mini 4-game hitting streak. This is a bit significant given that he is coming off perhaps the worst…More

Minors Report for 6/10/10: Dellin Betances Returns

Tampa: Dellin Betances finally stood foot on a baseball mound tonight, and pitched extremely well in a victory. Betances (22) went 6 innings, allowing 1 run on 3 hits. He walked nobody and struck out 6. Betances is one of the biggest prospects in the organization (talent wise and size was) when he is healthy…More

Who’ll Pick up the Pieces?

It is rare that a team will go an entire 162 games without a significant injury of some sort; last year, the Yankees lost Alex Rodriguez for the first month & Xavier Nady for just about the entire season.    At one point, the two catchers on the roster were Francisco Cervelli & Kevin Cash. So,…More

I intentionally decided to withhold typing this up until after Jason Bay and Matt Holliday signed; as it seemed that a strong percentage of Yankees fans wanted one or the…More

Pitching Options

Now that the biggest fish in the pitching ocean has been signed (John Lackey), it is time for the Yankees to look at their own pitching depth to see if there is a move they should make for their own rotation.     I am of the belief that you should never overreact to what other teams…More

Looking Ahead to 2010: Relievers

We all heard it last winter; with the signings of Sabathia, Burnett, and Teixiera, the Yankees were left with only one weakness:  Their bullpen.       Opening Day 2009 didn’t quell those fears, as the bullpen imploded miserably, following CC Sabathia’s shaky debut.    In the first month of the season, the bullpen fashioned a 6.46 ERA, as…More

Just Say No To Roy

As the rumors begin to heat up surrounding superstar pitcher Roy Halladay, I have one piece of advice for the Yankees: Don’t do it. Say what?    Take one of the best starters in the game, pair him up with one of the other best starters in the game, give him a rich extension..and viola!  You…More
