Banuelos is looking like the one that got away

Last winter, after Brian Cashman traded him, a few of the Yankee "prospect" blogs conveniently downsized their assessments of Manny Banuelos. He went from being a big-hope-for-a-comeback to a never-gonna-make-it. Excitement was building over the Yankees big acquisition: David Carpenter!The fact that longtime Yankee executive Gordon Blakely had jumped to Atlanta - where he orchestrated...

Atlanta Braves draft: Kolby Allard

With the fourteenth pick in the 2015 MLB First-Year Player Draft the Atlanta Braves selected 17-year old left-handed pitcher Kolby Allard. He is a big kid who possesses a nasty curveball and a fastball that is said to be between 92 to 94 miles per hour. The Braves continued their latest trend of going after players with high risk and also a high chance at success. Allard missed most...

Manny Banuelos for Carpenter and Shreve?

First, I can understand why Cashman made that trade: The Yankees had better pitching prospects to protect than Banuelos. And, of course, River Ave quickly embraced the deal - almost too much, if I remember correctly.But it's looking like a bummer.Manny Banuelos is throwing a 2.65 ERA at Triple A for the Braves, and he's picking up steam. (He started the season terribly.) Carpenter...

Latest news from the meltdown front: No lead is safe

Last winter, Brian Cashman played an interesting strategy... sort of like in the board game Risk, when you stash all your armies in Australia. He hoarded bullpen "power" arms. He traded Frankie Cervelli for one. (Frankie's hitting .304 in Pittsburgh.) He traded Manny Banuelos for two of them. (Manny with a 2.08 ERA at Triple A.) He traded Shawn Kelly, a power arm, for another one...
