The "rotation" in Scranton-Wilkes Barre (which may soon be the one on NYC)

OK, it's happened. I'm rattled. Mayday, mayday, mayday...The latest Pineda setback - plus the visit from St. Tommyjohn to Jose Campos and Ivan Nova - have blown my circuitry. From now on, I'm giving all our starters the 1,000-yard stare. If a new guy shows up, why bother to learn his name? The old ones? Keep Dr. Andrews on speed-dial. CC Sabathia hasn't gone the last...

Pin Notes – Roster Moves and Campos Surgery

Jose Campos Some minor league goings on to report about. First off the young 21-year old pitcher Jose Campos had Tommy John surgery this week. Campos was part of the Michael Pineda and Jesus Montero trade a few years ago. Campos hasn’t been much of a factor since being acquired from the Seattle Mariners. He’s been down in Single-A Charleston since 2012 and has seen his share...

Hector Noesi has done the Yankees proud

The Mariners have cut bait on Noesi.You know what gets me? Michael Pineda hasn’t appeared in a regular-season game as a Yankee yet. Jose Campos still hasn’t pitched above Single-A. Pineda’s in the rotation so he’s about to start paying dividends, but to this point, the Yankees have gotten nothing at all from that trade. The Mariners have gotten -1.5 WAR. Or, if you prefer...

Yankees trim roster

Two years after trade, Michael Pineda finally ready to help Yankees

It's hard to think of a high-profile trade that worked out as poorly for both teams as 2012's Jesus Montero for Michael Pineda swap. Montero hasn't hit (89 OPS+) and was suspended 50 games for his ties to Biogenesus last year. Hector Noesi, the other guy who went to Seattle, has a 64 ERA+ since the trade. Single-A righty Jose Campos missed most of last year with an elbow...

New York Yankees Looking Good In The Montero/Pineda Trade

Remember that trade?  On January 23rd, 2012 the New York Yankees sent Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi to the Seattle Mariners for Jose Campos and Michael Pineda. Pineda was coming off an All Star season and was 5th in rookie of the year voting in 2011.  He had a respectable line of 9-10 with a 3.74 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 171 IP and 173 k’s.  Seattle was a bad team that year, finishing...

The future of the New York Yankees is up in the air. Yankee Stadium on July 1, 2010 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Unlike the past decade, or since the infamous Core Four, the Yankee brass wants to depend on the farm system to produce the team’s future stars. The last homegrown star to come up was Brett Gardner back in 2008. Here are four of the Yankees top prospects that I think have...
