Wither goest Adam Warren and John Ryan Murphy? (Answer: They're with Jake Cave)

Quick updates for that Easter basket, which you heartlessly filled with dyed, aborted chicken fetuses.1. Thus far, Adam Warren has not pitched well for the Cubbies. He's thrown six innings, given up six earned runs - so let's see now, six divided by six, times nine, carry the naught - that's an ERA of 6.00! That's Sabathiaesque! He has struck out three, not walked anybody. Considering...

How does John Ryan Murphy rate having everyone use his middle name?

Used to be, to get a famous middle name, you needed to be a President or to shoot one. In rare instances did Yankee middle names become known. Here's my off-hand ranking of the greatest Yankee Middle Names.1. George Herman 2. Lawrence Peter 3. Mickey Charles4. Derek Sanderson5. Bucky F---g. OK, delete number five. Still, you with me? Hardly any Yankees - even the greats ...

In one game today, did the Yankees equal the entire output from the farm system last year?

Dellin Betances and JR Murphy both won it.Did our minor league system last year accomplish such a thing?Let's see. There was Preston Claiborne and Austin Romine... maybe Vidal Nuno, if you consider a guy taken from the discard pile as a minor league product. For the first time in a long time, two completely homegrown Yankees combined to play a huge role in a win. Enjoy it, folks.

Enjoy it while it lasts: Yankee catchers and 2B are crushing the ball

Yes, the first weeks of spring training are jokes. But it's nice to see what competition fosters on a roster.Five of the Yankee top 11 hitters thus far are catchers, which means they got off to a good start - and maybre - just maybe - it is because somebody is about to be traded. It would make no sense for Austin Romine or Francisco Cervelli to catch for Scranton - especially...

J.R. Murphy: New York Yankees Catching Prospect

Barring unforeseen circumstances, J.R. Murphy isn’t going to be the New York Yankees’ starting catcher anytime soon. Not with Brian McCann inked to a five-year contract worth $85 million. But that doesn’t preclude Murphy from having a bright future, be it in the Bronx or elsewhere. A second-round pick in 2009 out of a Bradenton, […]
