"Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are it might have been." -Kurt Vonegut Think back to the excitement of Joba Chamberlain. Here was a 22 year old pitcher pumping 100 mile per hour fastballs past prodigious power hitters and unleashing devastating sliders that seemed to disappear straight into the dirt. Not only ...
With a less than stellar free agent market and several gaping holes in the rotation, it appears likely that the Yankees will fill at least one of these holes through trade. While It is always fun to dream about acquiring pitchers at the top of the spectrum- Felix Hernandez would fit well with CC Sabathia, ...
Via Dave Gershman of the Penn League Report: Coming out of the draft last year, many were extremely high on a certain South Carolina commit. That same young guy fell to the Yankees a few rounds in, and he was still touted as a potential everyday player. That would be Mason Williams, and ...
Via Dave Gershman of the Penn League Report: [Cito Culver] looked much bigger than his listed height at 6'0 or 6'1. He also gained some more strength, which he definitely needed the last time I checked. Starting with the defensive side of things, Culver showed plenty of range, which isn't a surprise ...
The Yankees traded first baseman Juan Miranda to Arizona today and got a 19-year-old right handed pitcher named Scottie Allen in return. I didn't know anything about him, but I did find this brief scouting report via Baseball America: Allen throws four pitches, three of which grade as average at times, but lacks the one ...
Last Saturday Manuel Banuelos pitched in the Arizona Fall League Rising Stars Showcase. He was impressive as he tossed two innings and struck out three. Here is what ESPN's Keith Law had to say about his performance: … a ridiculous changeup that had plus arm speed and hard, late fading action, and he touched 94 ...
Via the NY Daily News: As for [Jesus Montero], whom the Yankees have been hyping as being ready to step in as their No. 1 catcher next season: "That's a real reach," said one of the scouts. "I don't doubt Montero's going to hit in the majors, but his defense behind the plate and handling ...
Via Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal: The pivotal moment of Kerry Wood's career didn't happen at Wrigley Field. And it won't happen at Rangers Ballpark this weekend. It happened on a slab of concrete behind a gray, indistinct building in Phoenix, not far from the airport, one morning in June 2007. Mr. Wood had ...
Via the NY Daily News: "He forgot to pitch," was the way the scout put it by phone Friday [talking about Phil Hughes]. "I got the feeling that he had so much success with his fastball against Minnesota (in Game 3 of the AL division series) that he fell in love with the idea of ...
Like it or not, A.J. Burnett is starting tonight for the Yankees. At least he's going up against Texas' least impressive starter in Tommy Hunter. Here is a look at this matchup by the numbers: 2010 Numbers: Hunter: 23 G, 13-4 record, 128 IP, 3.73 ERA, 1.24 WHIP. Burnett: 33 G, 10-15 record, 186.2 IP, 5.26 ...
