    Ohh… the days of Tyler Clippard

    • cult of basebaal

      ah, those halcyon days of yore …

  • cult of basebaal

    Nice game for Ajax! No k’s even.

    Maybe it’s time to find a way to get Rodriguez up here as the 4th outfielder, he used to be a useful bat in the bigs at least he’d bring a little pop and patience to the role.

  • cult of basebaal

    Nice to see Romine heating up again.

    • Doug

      yeah, 8 total bases is very nice

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Absolutely. Can’t have enough catchers, a good hitting catcher who can field his position adequately is worth his weight in gold. Even if we don’t use all of them, they’re very attractive trade bait to address other needs.

  • Doug

    always a good thing when your top 3 minor league positional players combine to go 9-14 with 5 doubles, a homer, 4 runs, and 9 RBIs

  • http://bronxbaseballdaily.com Matt ACTY/BBD

    Jesus Montero makes me smile.

  • YankeeFan

    Hey guys, looks like Dellin was placed on the DL. Also any news on Suttle and Heredia?

    • Doug

      what’s going on with betances?

      • YankeeFan

        I’m assuming that it’s probably sore shoulder. I remember him missing time around the same time last season after a bad few starts down in Charleston where he had no control thanks to a bum shoulder.

        • Doug

          if it’s a shoulder, not good

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

        They did the same thing with him last year. I suspect its a visit to Nardi University to address his control, but they’ll never admit that.

  • 27 this year

    Is Hector Noesi a legit prospect or just a possible middle reliever?

  • http://www.twitter.com/MatthewHarris84 Matt H

    Tell me again why Angel Berroa is on this team and Shelly Duncan isn’t the power bat off the bench…that can play 1b, and the corner OF positions as well?

    • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ The Artist

      Because Shelly Duncan can’t hit anything that isn’t a fastball.

      • Drew

        He’s no Cody Ransom

      • Brandon HA !

        I was going to say the same thing. If anything I’m wondering why isn’t John Rodriguez, Colin Curtis or Edwar Gonzalez up here before Berroa, Jorge Vasquez or even Reegie Corona would be better options.

  • Reggie C.

    Romine is heating up in the past week. That slugging percentage is definitely on the rise. I wonder what’s the last word on his defensive game at catcher. We’re all familiar with the possibility that Romine has a better chance to be Posada’s heir b/c he doesn’t profile to lose athleticism as he moves up the ladder. But is Romine showing superior defensive actions than Montero at this point ??
