There was once a time where the Yankees had the "Killer B's", three pitchers that seemed to have a bright and destined future in the Yankees organization. There was also a time where the Yankees #1 prospect was Jesus Montero, a catcher that was imagined to be the heir to Jorge Posada's throne. Fast-forward to ...

The Killer B’s; A cautionary tale of prospect hugging

Manny Banuelos

The year was 2011. The Yankees had failed to make it to the World Series in 2010 after winning it all in 2009. It was disappointing, but the 2009 World Series Title winning performance was still fresh in all of our minds, and there was reason for hope that future Yankees teams would be younger, ...

Yankees former 1st rounder Brackman signs with the Reds

It was a little surprising when the Yankees didn't pick up Andrew Brackman's option this offseason, but considering it was worth $2 million and he took a giant step backwards last season it wasn't totally without merit. Still, I wanted to see the Yankees re-sign him for maybe a lesser deal, but instead he has signed ...

Yankees Release 2007 1st Round Draft Pick Andrew Brackman

In a bit of an unexpected move today Brian Cashman told reporters that the Yankees have not exercised their option on their 2007 1st round draft pick Andrew Brackman, making him a free agent.

Pictures of the Yankees Rookie Hazing


It's a tradition that at the end of each year team's dress their rookies up in some silly get-up. There is usually a theme to it too and this year's theme was 80's musicians. So Dellin Betances and Andrew Brackman dressed up as Milli Vanilli, George Kontos as George Michaels, Hector Noesi ...
