Game 119: I'm going going, back back, to Cali Cali
Game 119 Spillover Thread

I’m super busy over at MLBTR with the signing deadline and all, so I’m going to cop out and leave you with a bullet pointer for tonight. DotF kinda sucks without Jesus Montero anyway.

In case you missed it, Russ Ortiz opted out of his contract and became a free agent. Big whoop, no big loss. Sean Black was named NY-Penn League Pitcher of the Week.

  • Triple-A Scranton: Austin Jackson threw three walks (!!!) and Mark Melancon threw two hitless innings.
  • High-A Tampa (Game One): Damon Sublett doubled while Dan Brewer & Austin Romine took 0-fers. DJ Mitchell put nine guys on base in 4.2 IP.
  • High-A Tampa (Game Two): Dan Brewer homered & drove in five while Jairo Heredia went the distance with 7 shutout innings
  • Low-A Charleston: Taylor Grote doubled twice and Dan Kapala hung zeroes on the board for five innings in a spot start.
  • Rookie GCL Yanks: Kelvin DeLeon & Judd Golson each drove in a run while Nik Turley struck out six and walked four in 3.2 IP.

Double-A Trenton had a scheduled off day, and Short Season Staten Island is off until Wednesday for the All Star break. Regular DotF comes back tomorrow.

    anyone else just a tee bit disappointed with the way the yanks maxed their budget? i mean, it’s GREAT to have both heathcott and murphy locked in, and the deals offered to both cotham and mitchell were very lucrative.

    on the other hand, it’s all about quality over quantity and this draft haul is nothing to slouch at.

      I prefer this approach though it does have some downside.

      In our case we seem to already have a lot of good prospects at the lower levels and fewer but better players might be an especially good fit this year.

    Austin Jackson threw three walks (!!!)

    Had me thinking Jackson put in an emergency pitching appearance there. Checked the box score to be sure. He drew 3 walks.

    when did brackman get traded to durham? how else can you explain the free passes to ajax.
