The Trade Deadline: Who Should the Yankees Try to Acquire?

With the Cliff Lee sweepstakes over and the Yankees barely missing out on the biggest of big prizes, who should they now target in the next few weeks? It appears that Lee was the only big prize on their radar; the only player they’d be willing to give up a strong minor league package for. […] [Read More]

Andy Pettitte Fill-In Options

With Joe Girardi’s announcement that Andy is heading to the disabled list and Brian Cashman announcing it may be at least 3-4 weeks, the Yankees will need to come up with a starting pitcher for at least the next three turns around the rotation. The first roster move will probably involve Andy going to the […] [Read More]

The Potential Cliff Lee Deal

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]

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

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. On the opposite side of the spectrum, Neil Medchill was demoted from Tampa to Charleston. I am going to break from the normal format […] [Read More]

Minors Report for 6/23/10 (Eduardo Nunez; Austin Romine; Graham Stoneburner)

Charleston was off tonight as they are on their All-Star Break. Scranton: Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-5 with two RBI but it wasn’t enough as Scranton fell, 7-6. Nunez is now hitting .317 on the season. 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 6/22/10 (Zach McAllister; Austin Romine; Dellin Betances; Sally League All-Stars)

Scranton: Zach McAllister pitched a solid game, but still took the loss as Scranton fell, 3-1. McAllister went seven innings, allowing three runs on five hits. He walked two, struck out one, and allowed a home run. McAllister is now 5-5 on the season with a 4.50 ERA (14 starts, 78 IP, 88 H, 19 […] [Read More]

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

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]

Minors Report for 6/20/10 (Brandon Laird; David Phelps)

Tampa had the day off. Scranton: One of those days where there isn’t too much to report on in Scranton. Jesus Montero went 0-for-4 as Scranton was able to pound out eight hits…but only one run. That run came off of the bat of Reegie Corona (23, IF), who hit a solo home run. Corona […] [Read More]
