Prospects That Could Make An Impact in 2016

The Yankees have started to make an attempt to get younger. Last year, they traded for Nathan Eovaldi and Didi Gregorious, gave rookies Luis Severino and Greg Bird prominent roles, and avoided trading top prospects. The goal of building a team that can have short term and long term success, which is what the Yankees are trying to accomplish, often starts with the use of major league...

2015 Arizona Fall League in review

The Arizona Fall League wrapped up yesterday after a championship game that featured both plenty of promise and plenty of reminders why these guys aren’t in the major leagues yet. The game saw the Scottsdale Scorpions (made of players from the Giants, Indians, Red Sox, Tigers, and Twins) take on the Surprise Saguaros, a team consisting of players from the Royals, Rangers, Yankees...

Stock Up For Prospects- AL East

The AL East is the last division left to be detailed in my Stock Up for Prospects series. For the most part the once mighty AL East has taken a step back at the Major League level, but the Minor League levels bear the fruits for this recession. Even the mighty New York Yankees have put an emphasis on developing from within, dreaming of the days their “core four” of Derek Jeter...

Analysis: The Hotstove Has Been Lit

Going into the 2015 offseason, it was all but guaranteed that the Yankees would trade either John Ryan Murphy or Gary Sanchez. Along with Brian McCann and Austin Romine, the team had a surplus of catchers, and plenty of needs elsewhere. An explosive Arizona Fall League performance by Sanchez may have put him ahead of Murphy in the eyes of the Yankees organization, making Murphy the...

After today's trade, Yankees could have two corner outfielders named Aaron next year

The Yankee plan is taking shape: Acquire former super-prospects, and give them new incarnations.They made two moves today.1. They freed Jose Pirela - a guy they never coveted, because all he ever did was hit at every level of the minors - for a 20-year-old RH bullpen lug nut whose name I don't remember, but it will surely be filed with the Rumbelows and Goodys of the Scrantonian...

It's time for some uncontested truths regarding next year (and, more importantly, 2017)

Well, here we are - one year older, one year more brittle, buried in a steaming heap of bad contracts... but with a glimmer of hope. It's another fuming, unfulfilled Yankee off-season erection.OK... it's time to deal with a few uncontested truths.1. Next year, the AL East won't be as mediocre as it looked last June. Toronto will have the killer lineup, Marcus Stroman, and money...

Game over, series over, nightmare (for now) over: It's winter, the wonderful off-season, when once again, Yankee hopes spring anew!

No more suffering, Yank fans. As of today, the Mets are no longer the toast of NYC! As of this morning, we have achieved also-ran equality!There will be no Metapalooza down the Canyon of Heroes. No Grandyman on the Tonight Show. No Matt Harvey kiss from De Blasio. Soon, the weather will turn miserable. It's Opening Day of the Off-Season, the happiest time on the new YES calendar...

Peoria with Comeback Win in Fall League Opener

The Arizona Fall League kicked off in Peoria Tuesday as the Javelinas took on the Surprise Saguaros. Lucas Sims, Atlanta Braves number seven prospect, took the mound to open the season against Texas Rangers fourth ranked prospect and 65th overall, Lewis Brinson. Brinson drew a walk and proceeded to steal second. Aledmys Diaz struck out before Michael Reed reached first on a Gabriel...

Yankees Top Prospects

System Overview Overall, 2015 was a success for the Yankees’ farm system. There was some turn over in the developmental team in the front office in 2014, with Director of Player Development Pat Roessler being fired and Mark Newman retiring from Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations. Gary Denbo took control of both positions, and the early returns have been great. In...

Watch: Haircuts and subprime mortgages are bad in ‘The Big Short’ trailer

Adam McKay is known for being a funny man, partnering with Will Ferrell on several films in addition to their production house Gary Sanchez Productions and the website Funny or Die. But if you saw 2010’s The Other Guys, you know McKay had quite a bit to say about 2008’s economic collapse and the role Wall Street played in it with a credits sequence that was almost an educational...

Projecting Yankees Catching Prospect Gary Sanchez

Now that the minor league regular seasons have come to a close, and we’ve reached the ides of September, most of the noteworthy roster-expansion call-ups are behind us. Nearly all of the players who were expected to have substantial impacts on the pennant races came up on the first of the month or shortly thereafter. However, a few more prospects were promoted over the weekend...

A big shoe drops today, and the mystery of Dustin Ackley will be explained

Something will happen today. It must happen. I'm sort of dreading it. Today, we will learn why, why, why the Yankees sandbagged themselves into a corner in their obsessive quest for somebody named Dustin Ackley.  I spent last night trying to figure it out. Never did. Ackley's nickname should be "The Sphinx." His presence as a Yankee - if he remains one after today - is a dark...

It's Cashnado Week in the Yankiverse, but while we imagine who the Yankees might get, let's also ponder what we might have to give up

Sunday, the all-star mega-superteam Royals banished three sprites to Ohio for the great and mighty Johnny Cueto - the Koufaxian Hall of Famer, now 7-6 on the season. This prompted a loud chorus from the Yankee Blogger Rapid Response Teams, demanding that Brian Cashman pull off a counter-deal. Shriekers gonna shriek, dealers gonna deal. The official scream line is that we need...

Reality check: The Yankee resurgence is still based on the abysmal AL East

The Division RaceThis much we know:1. Mother Nature is a maniac. (Via Chandler Brossard)2. Money is piss, and the sparrow is immortal. (Via Charles Bukowski)3. The AL East pretty much sucks. (Via everybody with eyes). The Yankees' recent conga line of wins stems, at least partly, from the stunning wretchedness of the division. Boston is a certified SuperFund cleanup, (though their...

We will be first... and Boston last... at the break. But will it matter?

Next weekend, the Yankees will host Robbie Cano, (doncha know?) and the Second Coming of Jesus Montero, welcoming the pair to Gotham as the reigning leaders in the AL East. They will do this irregardless of what happens today in the glaring sunlight of Boston.By then, the Yankees will be three games into the Rob Refsnyder Project, which ends the Age of Drew at the bottom of the order...

Staggering toward July, and chasing another Wild Card, the Yankees face their annual Cashman culling of the herd

It's easy to over-exaggerate the importance of a Yankee defeat, especially when your psychic existence orbits around the health of - say - Carl Pavano's buttocks. And last night's shutout was as predictable as a sugar hangover on November 1. Watching the Evils coast through the 7th and 8th innings - flailing at first pitches like they had one of A-Rod's private girlie shows to catch...

Life is good, all is well, everything is beautiful, and I love each of you.

Nothing makes a game more watchable than a six-run first.It adds drama to the night, knowing the opposing starter is toast and their bullpen is down to stems and seeds. It provides a mental cushion. You can root for the padding of stats. You can watch hockey between pitches. (Or even Cirque de Kardashian.) This must be what it's like to live in Colorado, where you can walk...

Bullpen combines for 13 scoreless innings, Thunder beat Akron in 18

TRENTON – Coming off a 7-game road-trip in which the Thunder lost 5 games, including a 3-game sweep against New Hampshire, Trenton was hungry for a win to get back on track and start off the homestand with the right foot. In a quite tight and very long game, the Trenton Thunder were able to pull off a highly-needed win against the Akron RubberDucks in extra innings. After being...

Shhh. Don't tell anybody, but it's a rebuilding year

The most important Yankee game last night was washed out. It would have been played in Trenton, but a wet field and sloppy conditions created too much risk. (Also, there might have been some lane closings ordered by the governor; not sure about that...)The future of the Yankees - if there is any - sits in Trenton.There, the elongated giant, Aaron Judge, will patrol RF - a few long...

Did Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig prank the press with ‘A Deadly Adoption’?

April 1 has to be the worst day for reporters and bloggers. If not in politics and sports, then certainly on the pop culture and entertainment beats. Which stories are real? Which are April Fool’s Day jokes? Most of the time, it’s easy to tell what’s a goof and what isn’t. But in some cases, the pranks are good enough to make one wonder. So did Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig...

Clip and save, for when they trade him in July

Sorry. Hate to be such a pill. (I'm thinking sodium pentothal.) The Moncada thing still haunts me. But in the names of Peter O'Brien and Manny Banuelos, I REFUSE to accept another steaming load of Yankee prospect hype, ginned up by a propaganda machine that will say anything about anybody, as long as it fills space in the paper and seats in the stadium. Nope. Won't buy it. I...

Retro Week continues: Super Prospect Gary Sanchez looks forward to big development in 2014!

This hurts, especially as we rev up our hopes for the rookies - our only true salvation. If they fail, there won't be enough Martin Prados and Chris Capuanos out there to rescue to team at the trade deadline. But last February, we were licking this garbage straight from the Yankee trowel.  LAKELAND, Fla. -- Gary Sanchez, the Yankees' top prospect, was at his home in the Dominican...
