Yankees’ Martin Prado: ‘I have to be 100 percent’ to play

After two weeks, it's official: The NY sportswriters have declared the Martin Prado deal a success

First, the obvious: Martin Prado is a nice player. He hits 10 HRs a year, bats .270 and plays three positions. The Yanks could do worse. And Prado hit well during the team's recent 5-game winning streak. (Not last night, though: He went 0-4.)Still, isn't it rather early to start congratulating the Yankee front office for trading power-hitting prospect Peter O'Brien for...
