With the start of the regular season less than one week away, I’m starting to wrap up my series on players to watch outside of Yankee-land. Today, we’ll swing into the NL Central:
At Target Field, it’s time to put up or shut up for Delmon Young. After lot’s of minor league hype and a [...]
Yesterday, I looked at some of Brian Cashman’s recent trades, specifically what he and the Yankees gave up and whether or not those players would really make a difference. I ended the post with the Brian Bruney trade and now I’m going to start this on with the more major trades of the [...]
Here’s a notable item that we missed yesterday.
Baseball America released its Top 100 Prospects List and the Yankees were represented by their two young backstops, Jesus Montero (4) and Austin Romine (86). Atlanta’s Jason Heyward topped the list (no surprise there), while a few former Yankees in Arodys [...]
This past off-season, the Yankees said goodbye to a number of players. The biggest name was outfield prospect Austin Jackson and the one who contributed the most to the 2009 was lefty reliever Phil Coke. Both of them ended up in Detroit via the Curtis Granderson trade.
I can’t help but wonder how these two [...]
I’ll be the first to acknowledge that calling a player “exciting” on a blog infatuated with statistical analysis seems counterproductive, but the fanboy in me absolutely loves this move. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Curtis Granderson is the most exciting outfielder the Yankees have had since [...]
To the surprise of no one, the Yankees are officially in the Roy Halladay sweepstakes. Of course, it’s unclear whether this is just a smokescreen to drive the price up for other teams. I imagine the Yankees and Blue Jays will exchange names, and if turns out Joba Chamberlain [...]
Via MLBTR comes this piece from Jeremy Sandler of the National Post. In it, Sandler brings us a few tidbits regarding the Blue Jays’ asking price for their 32-year old ace, Roy Halladay. While most of what Sandler has to say isn’t at all surprising—for instance, stating that Toronto desires “young, [...]
Here’s a quick nightcap for you:
BA GIVES A-JAX PROPS
Baseball America has named Austin Jackson the 7th best International League prospect in the game (the list features the top-20 IL prospects). The only other position players listed before him were Matt Wieters and Andrew McCutchen, which speaks volumes about Jackson’s talent (he’s rated [...]
From Chad Jennings, we learn that the Yankees have called up Francisco Cervelli, Ramiro Pena, Mark Melancon, Mike Dunn and Edwar Ramirez. No surprises there. Expect to see Shelley Duncan, Anthony Claggett, Juan Miranda and Brett Gardner get the call later, as well (Austin Jackson remains a possibility, too).
(props to RAB)
From Peter Gammons (ESPN), we learn that the Yankees called the Blue Jays about Roy Halladay and were told that the price for the aging ace would be Phil Hughes and our two best position prospects, Austin Jackson and Jesus Montero. Brian Cashman would never pull the trigger on that deal, though, which is [...]
