    when’s kennedy’s promotion coming? He pitched at USC, he should be in AA already, or at least very very soon. He should get as much AA experience this year as they can get him, that way he can settle in there and start ’08 in AAA at age 23 (assuming he does well).

    Mike, since we have more good pitching prospects then I can ever remember how about putting up a watch like Hughes for the bigger ones? (Betances, Kennedy, Chamberlain)

  • http://www.riveraveblues.com Ben

    Todd, I think those guys are still a bit too far out. Maybe a Tyler Clippard watch would be more appropriate.

  • Mike

    Wouldn’t mind seeing a Jeff Marquez or Alan Horne watch soon either.

  • Barry

    Triple A was a pretty good game, Chase showed breezed through it. Then Britton demonstrated why he shouldn’t be in the minors let alone the pros. Good game, hot as hell though.

  • Mike

    Barry, how exactly did Britton demonstrate he doesn’t belong in the minors? He didn’t allow an earned run you know. (Not just yesterday, but all season).

    In 55 major league innings he has a 3.23 ERA, 139 ERA , 6.79 K/9 and 2.33 K/BB.

    At this point, if it were up to me, Britton, Bruney, and Proctor would be the top 3 righties out of the pen. (Although in light of the statistics provided yesterday, I wouldn’t mind Farnsworth on 0 and 2 days rest.).

  • Stylez

    I think the yankees are waiting for either Farnsworth or Vizciano to start show casing themselves better so they can wheel a deal of some sort involving either one and then call up Britton.

    I still love that we got this kid for Jared Wright
