The Yankees' big problem is not pitching, hitting or fielding. It is a dark, soul-crushing boredom

Last night, I had a reason to watch the Yankees. His name was Slade Heathcott.First time he came up, we were already down 7-0. I figured the game was over. We don't score eight runs in a weekend, much less one night. Still, I dropped what I was doing and rushed the TV. And he didn't let me down: He laced a drive to left-center, ran like a banshee, slid headfirst for a double. It...

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...

Mason Williams on the way up

With Slade Heathcott‘s call up to the big leagues, the Yankees announced earlier today that Mason Williams has been called up to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre from Double-A Trenton. The promotion is well earned for Willams, who’s resurrected his standing as a top Yankees prospect since falling off from his early success in the organization after he was drafted. Williams was...

New York Yankees: Expectations for Slade Heathcott

After a heartbreaking 8-6 loss to the Nationals via a Ryan Zimmerman two-run, walk-off homerun, the Yankees received more bad news after learning that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury sprained his right knee and would need a 15-day DL stint.  As a result, the Yankees called up former first round draft pick Slade Heathcott from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  Once a highly touted...

New Yankee Slade Heathcott has Developed as Player and Person

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports Jacoby Ellsbury has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, prompting the call-up of OF prospect Slade Heathcott. Besides a wild name, who is this 24-year-old? Heathcott was drafted by the Yankees out of Texas in the first round of the 2009 draft. Forgoing a scholarship offer from LSU to sign for 2.2 million dollars made sense for the young man...

Yankees Promote a Healthy Slade Heathcott

With Jacoby Ellsbury out of action for at least the next couple of weeks with a knee sprain, the Yankees called up former first round draft choice Slade Heathcott to help fill the void in the outfield. If it feels like you’ve been hearing about Heathcott for a while now, that’s because you have been. […]

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...

Yankees Call up Slade Heathcott, Send Ellsbury to DL

The New York Yankees have called Slade Heathcott up from the Triple-A, Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders. During the game against the Washington Nationals, Jacoby Ellsbury seemed to tweak his right knee on a swing in the fourth inning. Ellsbury will be getting an MRI on that knee, but until then, he has been put on the 15-Day DL. So far this year, Heathcott has a slash line of .280...
