SLADE HEATHCOTT RUMORS

Is John Sterling's home run call for Slade Heathcott his worst ever?

John Sterling coming up with his home run calls?One of the things about writing this blog is that I don't really know what will strike a chord (or a nerve!) with people, and what will be greeted with nothing but crickets. With a few exceptions, that is!For some reason, any thing I write on Michael Kay or John Sterling will generally get a huge number of page views. One of our top...

New York Yankees: Slade Heathcott’s wild journey to the big leagues

Yankee fans got some disappointing news this week when it was announced that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury had been placed on the 15-day DL with a knee injury. To that point of the season, the former All-Star had been one of the Yankees’ most productive players, boasting a .324 batting average and a team leading 14 stolen bases. Add that to the fact that the Bronx Bombers have...

New York Yankees: Expectations for Slade Heathcott

Perfect timing? MIred in a slump, Slade Heathcott gets called up to the Yankees

For weeks, I secretly hoped Carlos Beltran would tweak a love handle and go on the DL. It wasn't that wished ill on Beltran - he is a nice man - but I just lost hope for him. I now leave the room when he comes to bat. (I've tried everything; nothing works.) In my fantasy Yankee world, Slade Heathcott would rise from Scranton like Linus's Great Pumpkin, take over RF and play there...

Reason for hope: In his write-up on Yankee prospects, Keith Law calls Slade Heathcott "legitimately a crazy person."

I believe that I speak for the Yankiverse in saying: We'll take him!Actually, Law quotes an unnamed scout, who questions Heathcott's sanity.  Two years ago, the night after a torturous magazine-length feature article appeared in the local newspaper detailing Slade's troubled youth - (we're talking shotguns, booze, abandonment, and living in cars) -  this is what happened when he...
