BBDP April 6, 2012: Dellin Dealin’, Campos Cruisin’

BBDP MVP: Dellin Betances Triple-A Empire State vs. Lehigh Valley. L 5-6. L: Venditte (0-1) Brandon Laird: 1/4, RBI (.143) Colin Curtis: 1/4, K (.143) Francisco Cervelli: 0/4 (.000). I'm worried he might have taken this demotion really hard. Dellin Betances: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 ER, BB, 6 K (3.6 ERA). Excellent outing. The lack of walks is encouraging, ...

In hindsight Pineda trade was not necessary

Count me among the people who thought that Brian Cashman had pulled a heist at the time of the Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi for Michael Pineda and Jose Campos deal.

The Yankees went into this offseason without a lot of holes in the roster. The entire lineup was expected to return, except for Jorge Posada who was expected to be replaced by Jesus Montero. Of course Montero got traded. After all, the Yankees had a few free agents, none of them were major though, and most ...

KLaw ranks Yankees farm system as 10th best in MLB

The Yankees may have lost their top prospect in Jesus Montero earlier this offseason, but that hasn't knocked them out of the top 10 best farm systems in the game, according to Keith Law of ESPN who ranked the Yankees at No. 10.

Read: Scouting Report on Jose Campos

The really interesting part of the entire Jesus Montero-for-Michael Pineda to me is the 19-year-old Jose Campos, who seems like much more than just a throw in. Bart Klett over at Prospect Instrinct ranked Campos as the No. 5 prospect in the Mariner's system and put together a scouting report on him back in late August. ...

Pineda trade a hard but smart move for the Yankees

The initial shock has worn off and I'm beginning to see the Yankees trade of Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi to the Mariners for Michael Pineda and Jose Campos as a move that certainly comes with a bit of risk, but one that the Yankees had to make. In dealing for Pineda, the Yankees got a ...
