Dear Voters: WHAAAAAT?!?! Today you elected Andre Dawson into the Hall of Fame. Andrew Dawson, he of the career .806 OPS and 119 OPS+. Those are fine numbers; those are not even close to Hall of Fame numbers. Let me explain to you how terrible this decision was: Todd Zeile received zero votes. Todd Zeile's OPS ...
Over at MinorLeagueBall, John Sickels ranked the Yankees prospects: 1) Jesus Montero, C, Grade A: I know that his position is up in the air, but I love this bat so much that I'm going to give him a straight Grade A. This is a Mike Piazza/Manny Ramirez type bat. 2) Austin Romine, C, Grade B: Not in Montero's class ...
Just three days ago (on December 29th), NoMaas.org made this post about the Yankee organizational philosophy under the full control of Brian Cashman.

Nathaniel Stoltz of the Bleacher Report makes an argument that Sergio Mitre does not actually suck at the game of baseball. Very interesting ...
In mid-July of 2009, the Yankees signed an indy-leaguer named Trent Lare. Lare, who would turn 25 years old in August of that 2009, had never had any professional experience. He had spent three years with the Kalamazoo Kings of the Frontier League after a tenure at Oklahoma State University. Well believe it or not, this ...
Brian Cashman has already come out saying that if they add a left fielder, it would be someone on the cheap - somewhere around $4 million dollars max. That to me eliminates the following free agents from consideration: Matt Holliday, Jason Bay, and Johnny Damon. Furthermore, John Heyman is also claiming that Mark DeRosa has ...
The Yankees may have picked up Javier Vazquez, but he is obviously the third most important pick-up today behind Mike Rivera and OF Javier Herrera. According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, the Yankees signed OF Javier Herrera to a minor league deal. Herrera, who will be 25 in April, had only 2 at-bats last season. ...
