She headed up to Yankee Stadium for the historic moving day and chatted with some of the Yankee officials who were packing up the trucks for the long transport across the street. For such an historic day, it seems rather anticlimactic. Opening Day will be a far, far bigger deal.
Meanwhile, Keith Law, a one-man prospect wrecking machine, has capped off his week of prospect coverage on ESPN with a list of each organization’s top prospects. Since he ranked the Yanks 15th overall, New York gets just five prospects on the KLaw list:
- Austin Jackson, CF
- Jesus Montero, C
- Andrew Brackman, RHP
- Dellin Betances, RHP
- Zach McAllister, RHP
That seems about right to me. It’s good to see Brackman so high up on the list before he’s even thrown a pitch in the pros. His ceiling is as high as any other prospect’s in the game right now. Whether he can harness his talent remains to be seen.
Anyway, here’s your Friday evening open thread. You know the drill. Play nice.
