WTF? Cito Culver and Jake Cave didn't get the call?

Yesterday, the Evil Ex-Empire named 23 non-roster nobodies who'll hit Tampa this month in the annual cattle call for hot prospects and last season's tribal elders of Scranton. The marketable young studs - Clint and Gleyber, Justus and Chance - will be showcased to raise hopes across an angry, fuming Yankiverse, and maybe win Jim Dawson's watch, which is slowly becoming a curse. ...

Yankees re-sign Nick Rumbelow and Cito Culver to minor league contracts

According to Matt Eddy, the Yankees have re-signed right-hander Nick Rumbelow and infielder Cito Culver to minor league contracts. Rumbelow was designated for assignment and released earlier this offseason in a 40-man roster space saving move. Culver became a six-year minor league free agent following the season. Rumbelow, 25, missed just about the entire 2016 season with Tommy John...

Yankees have no plans to put Cito Culver on the mound

It has been six years since the Yankees selected shortstop and Rochester native Cito Culver with their first round pick in the 2010 draft (32nd overall), and since then he’s lost his prospect status because he’s been unable to develop offensively. Culver is a career .228/.306/.313 (80 wRC+) hitter in over 2,600 minor league plate appearances. Baseball is hard. There has been...

Cito Culver goes 4-for-5 at Scranton

Cito Culver - whipping mule for the Yankee farm system - was promoted to Scranton the other day to fill spaces for the September call-ups. The former first round pick, who hasn't hit a lick in four years, has gone on a tear. For posterity, here's the screen grab. (And yes, this answers the question: Where have you gone, Gregorio Petit?)

On Daniel Murphy & Lifestyles

Last night, hours after the final out of the Yankees' Spring Training game against the Phillies, I was at a loss as to what I would write about in this post. Yeah, A-Rod got a hit. True, the Yankees got some good pitching performances from Nathan Eovaldi and company.  Certainly, shortstop prospect Cito Culver made the Jeter Play.We also found out when certain players will be making...

With tears and speeches, the Yankees will be seeking a bridge to the Cito Culver Era

Here we go again... "Ladies and gentlemen, we direct your attention to the Monument Park in center field..."Historically, the Yankees haven't always blessed retiring icons with pennant-quality supporting casts. Mickey limped away in 1968, with Horace Clarke, Steve Whitaker and Andy Kosco setting the table. Elston and Babe both went out in Boston. Most maddening was the fate of Mariano...

In defense of... (gasp!)... the infamous Cito Culver

To hear various bleating voices from the Yankiverse, the Yankee brain trust should be fired because of Cito Culver. Last week, one blogger called the former first round pick a complete whiff. (Ah, the reason we blog: to vent.) Culver was selected number 32 - end of the first round - of the 2010 draft, outraging all those experts who consider themselves to be the Mel Kiper of baseball...
