    All these young players the Yanks have need to play. Better them playing everyday in minors than platooning in the bigs! Hopefully the team will be patient with these kids. When they are r ready no will stop them. Also I wouldn't be giving up on Mason Williams just yet! Talent always wins out!

    Rob's spring is go to end up giving him a job as a utility player in Scranton. If he can start hitting there, they'll probably trade him.

    As to the prospects, I think the Yanks are ready to do this the right way. Let them mature in the minors, only shuttle those meant for the bullpen up and down.

    Unfortunately missed JK's outing but all reports are good, in fact very good. Only one spring start and there's still a lot of really good players away at the WBC, but still very encouraging. Interesting that he and Adams were both assigned to the MiL camp together. Are they going to bring both along slower? Cessa hurt his case seemingly. The race for the rotation spots are going down to the wire. Severing and Mitchell with the latest surge.
