The Kyle Konundrum
  • The Scout

    No player who is new to a league should be judged quickly. That goes for those who start slow, such as A. Almonte or Betances, and those who start hot, such as Austin Jackson. Baseball has a way of evening out performances over time….

    Tabata’s on fire! he’s doing everything outside of slugging. but hey, for an 18-year-old in the FSL, it’s rather amazing. i love that he’s continuing to take walks. great patience for a youngin. i dont know if its enough to get him promoted this year, but i wouldnt mind it.

    speaking of promotions, what the hell is Edwar still doing in AAA?

  • http://yankeesetc.blogspot.com/ Travis G.

    and do you see Gardner getting promoted soon?

  • Zack

    For the love of God get Farnsworthless off the team and bring Edwar up. After tonight, there is no excuse whatsoever, none. Period. Infuriating…

  • Tommy

    I don’t know how the Yankees are going to handle the Kyle situation.

    Cashman: George, we’re going to DFA Farnsworth. He’s really been terrible.
    Big Stein: No problem, what’s he owed, 2 more million this year? We can handle that if nobody picks him up.
    Cashman: Well, actually, he’s got 6 million coming next year, too.
    Big Stein: Are you telling me you gave a 3-year contract to a middle reliever? Is that what you’re telling me?
    Cashman: Uh, well.

    I mean it’s all nice and well that the Yankees have billions of dollars, but at some point someone has to take responsibility for there consistently being contracts that need to be eaten.

    I hate to see Ramirez just sitting in Scranton while Farsnworthless has been terrible
