The Potential Cliff Lee Deal

on
As you all have probably heard by now, the Yankees are close to acquiring Cliff Lee for multiple prospects, including their very best hitting prospect (Jesus Montero) and an advanced second base prospect (David Adams). In Montero, the Yankees would be giving up their most advanced minor league bat in quite some time.    As much […] [Read More]

on
Mark Feinsand: OAKLAND – Robinson Cano broke out a “Get Off My Mound” T-shirt in the visiting trainer’s room before Monday night’s game, causing an eruption of laughter inside the Yankees’ clubhouse.

Let’s Make the All Star Game Better

on
A buddy of mine texted me yesterday. He’s a Tampa Bay Rays fan (yes they actually exist outside of Florida) and the All-Star rosters were already setting him off. His text: If Rivera is an All-Star, then Soriano deserves to be one too. Probably. There’s lots of guys that deserve to be All-Stars and Rafael […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/24/10 (Brandon Laird Has Huge Day; Austin Romine; Hector Noesi; Andrew Brackman & Zolio Almonte Promoted)

on
In promotion news, Andrew Brackman was promoted to Trenton & Zolio Almonte was promoted to Tampa. Almonte is a 21-year old center-fielder. This is quite the leap for the young man.

A right-handed bat, Nunez has posted good splits against both types of pitchers: .313/.378/.418 vs. lefties; .316/.345/.409 vs. righties. Those […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/21/10 (Ivan Nova; Gary Sanchez; Brett Marshall; Manny Banuelos)

on
A light schedule overall down on the farm as Trenton & Charleston were off while Tampa was postponed; so some of the focus will turn to teams deep down in the farm. So deep down you can barely see the players playing there. Typically speaking, I don’t report too much on these leagues; most of […] [Read More]
