2013 will be the year of the Yankee futures in Trenton and Austin

Projecting the Yankees future is like gauging an earthquake under the ocean: You see a seismic wave, then a period of quiet - and then the white foam tsunami. Well, 2013 is the seismic jolt. We start with a breaker of aging stars: Jeter, Pettitte, Mariano, Ichiro, Kuroda - even Youkilis, CC and A-Rod. Then comes a dead zone - around August, when the wheels fall off this geriatric...

According to Dave O&...

Can Prado ease Braves' transition at third?

Preparation for the replacement of Chipper Jones began long before he hugged his parents at Turner Field or other teams offered tribute in the form of surfboards and stadium flags.
