Lady Loves Pinstripes:
Jose Campos will have his personal cheering section this week. (Shari Sommerfield/MiLB.com)
In the midst of all the hysteria surrounding the Michael Pineda-Jesus Montero trade, the name Jose Campos might have gotten lost in the shuffle.
Campos was the other pitcher the New York Yankees received from the Seattle Mariners in the blockbuster trade.
The 19-year-old righty has only been in the minors for two years, and so far the reports are mixed about Campos’s potential.
Campos has the perfect pitcher’s frame at 6’4 and 200 lbs.
He throws a low-mid 90’s fastball, which he can locate; it can reach almost 100 mph.
Has a decent slider that is getting better and is developing into another plus pitch.
Has mound presence and displays confidence in tough situations at a very young age.
Settle fans were not stoked to let this kid go.
Works hard and continues to take solid steps forward.
Will Campos keep working hard on improving; and is he able to adapt easily...

Jorge Posada played 17 seasons in the same pinstripes that Thurman Munson sported for 11 years. But the link between the two former Yankees catchers goes well beyond the uniforms that they donned.

All-Star catcher Russell Martin and the New York Yankees avoided salary arbitration when they agreed to a $7.5 million, one-year contract.
NEW YORK (AP) - Jorge Posada was watching television when he saw speculation on which teams were interested in signing him as a free agent."They put my face on different uniforms," he said. "And it didn't look good."He began a Yankee and ended as a Yankee, spending his entire career ...
Longtime Yankees catcher Jorge Posada, who spent his entire 17-year Major League career in pinstripes, announced his retirement during a Tuesday morning news conference at Yankee Stadium.
HBT: The long-delayed Mariners-Yankees swap of Jesus Montero for Michael Pineda finally became official Monday.
What Jorge Posada did was special. Still, players who aren't fortunate enough to spend their entire careers with the same organization can, and often do, end up indelibly linked to just one franchise.
Brian Cashman has dealt away players like Alfonso Soriano, Nick Johnson, David Wells and Mike Lowell as general manager of the Yankees, but he believes Jesus Montero could be better than all of them.
“He may very well be the best player I’ve traded,” Cashman said of Montero, whom...

Jorge Posada never got the credit Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, or Mariano Rivera got, but you better believe he was just as important to their success. People want to hate the Yankees, but what other team do you see have so many players retire from that organization and just express nothing but love for the pinstripes.
