    Montero is just a beast is De La Rosa a name we now should continue to look into for updates since he has a special arm.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      Nah, not really on DeLaRosa. He’s a lefty that throws very, very hard, but he’s very raw (he’s a converted outfielder). I mean, there’s potential, but he’s got a long way to go.

        Athletic 6’0″ OF converted into a hard throwing southpaw pitcher…I believe the Mets and Twins have someone with that history. Not saying that’s what we’re looking at here but it’s interesting to note that both Santana and Liriano started as such.

    “Justin Snyder: 3 for 3, 3 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 1 E (throwing) – 14 for his last 25 with 3 walks”

    All that and a stolen base. I am officially starting my Justin Snyder for the ’09 BA Top 100 prospect list campaign.

  • CB

    Austin Jackson’s plate discipline has been very impressive so far. If that holds then he’ll be taking an important step forward.

    I’m really not sure what else to about Jesus. When you have a bat that special, but also a bat that’s so far in front of the glove, how do you handle his development? Not an easy call.

  • steve

    i wish i could watch that charleston team. gotta love jesus. montero that is.

  • Manimal

    Shelley needs to chill out and save some HR’s for when he gets called back up.

    Rasner and Edwar did beastly.

    Any news on Brett Gardner’s lip?

  • http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=56352514 Jamal G.

    You know just to have one final comment on the Phil Hughes velocity debate, take a look at what he’s throwing just 20 months ago at the All-Star Futures Game. He’s sitting 93-95 the whole time. Granted the fact that he came in for that one inning (I believe) could have increased his velocity a tick but not to the point of 89-91 all the way to 93-95.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dCoGKkk_njg

    I’d like to believe saberscouting.com’s take and that the mechanical flaw of him bending that glove side leg is the reason for his current lack of velocity. Also the weather can not be discounted.

    • CB

      Guys routinely overthrow at the Futures game. They do it all the time. No pitcher ever throws more than 30 pitches in that game either so pitchers can really let it all out if they want to.

      Also you can’t go by the gun at anyone game. There’s too much variability over a small number of pitches and from gun to gun.

    • JT

      Why does everyone say he was throwing 89-91? What gun are we looking at?
      MLB gameday clearly shows his last start was between 89-93, while most of his pitches were at 91-92. Maybe i am mistaken.

    • http://www.riveraveblues.com Mike A.

      He’s pitched at 90-94 in the past based on a ton of sources – BA, BP, PG Crosschecker, ESPN, etc – and he’s currently pitching at the low end of that range in the cold weather early in the year. There’s nothing, NOTHING to this completely overblown story. It’s time for Yankee fans to find another stupid internet story to focus on.

      • dan

        Fangraphs has fastball velocity for pitchers since 2002… Haren, Oswalt, Sabathia, Zambrano, Matsuzaka, Vazquez, and probably several others that I didn’t get to are all about 2 mph below their 2007 levels. Those were the only pitchers I looked at btw, and they ALL had a decrease from last year.

    When was the last time a Yankee pitched this well?

  • http://www.manzibar.com Mr. Manzibar

    dude…You guys sold Melky and Chien-Ming too early…I hope you have come around..

  • matt K

    shelly would have to get into the big league line up in order to hit the homers you want him to save up.

  • trevor

    what happened to angel reyes?

    • Brian

      Last I heard (I think just a few days ago) he was sent to Extended ST.

    Anyone in the Lakewood, NJ area note that the Charleston River Dogs visit the Blue Claws for a four game set in mid August. I plan to be there, one of them is my Birthday!
