Andy Phillips: 3 for 4, 2 R, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 BB, 1 K – .318-.394-.568-.962 this year, just imagine if he had some protection in the lineup

    How excited should we be about Frankie C? He’s 21, and a switch-hitting catcher, who can take a walk. But he doesn’t seem to have developed serious power yet. And what kind of catcher is?

    This is an absolute treat. Tim Lincecum has been sick in the minors and the stuff he has, awwwwww man.

    My fantasy team eagerly awaits Lincecum.

    Cervelli is my favorite Yankee prospect. He was last year as well. It isn’t a rhyme or reason thing, it just is what it is.

    I love that he is having such a good year. I love it when I pick a prospect to be my favorite that there is a chance of success.

    I was stupid and waited too long on Tim L. Now some other jerk has him, AND I lost out on Hughes due to wiaver priority. One of those years…
