Warren’s scoreless streak snapped in loss


The Yanks signed catcher Brian Peterson for Triple-A because Frankie Cervelli is on the disabled list with a sore hand. Barely a week ago the Yankees had to stick PJ Pilittere on the disabled list because they had no spot for him, and now they’re having to sign guys off the scrap heap to get by. Amazing how quickly depth can disappear.

    can DJ go to trenton, warren to charleston or tampa?

    great work by dunn and even russ ortiz.

    • billbybob says:

      I’ve seen Mike say this in past seasons; The NY Penn league is more competitive than Low A. Maybe Mike could weigh in on it for this year.

      • Mike Axisa says:

        I think the NY-Penn League has a better collection of talent year-in, year-out. But Low-A is tougher because it’s a full season grind.

        So many high draft picks haven’t signed yet, so the talent is down this year. That’s why the Neil Medchill’s of the world turn into Babe Ruth.

  2. Adam says:

    I realy wanna see them give romine a crack at trenton.

  3. Jake H says:

    DJ has been great so far this season. I wish they would challenge him with an AA assignment. Get his feet wet.

  4. pat says:

    Amazing how quickly depth can disappear

    A downtrodden Nation nods their head in agreement.

  5. pat says:

    I was really hoping Almonte would put together a semblance of a good season. Aside from cutting down the K’s he’s pretty much regressed this season.

  6. Januz says:

    What I am looking for is to see what the organization will look like next year. I hope they sign at least 8 more draft picka. I predict Heathcott, Murphy, Cotham, Mitchell, Thompson, and Stoneburner will be signed (Gut feeling the last three are done). That leaves the following: Lyons, Meade, McKenzie, Talerico, and Aplin to go. I hope they decide to sign a couple of them. Since it is unlikely they will announce a bunch of signings on the final day, and since offers to Meade and Lyons are SUPPOSED to occur soon, Monday should be a key date to see if any more players are signed. 11 days to go.

    • DreDog says:

      I really want Lyons, Meade, Stoneburner, and Cotham signed. Heathcott and Murphy are signed already in my mind.

    • Stryker says:

      i’d love to see meade and lyons signed. that would give a huuuuuge boost to the system in the long run.

      a prospective 2009 haul of:


      is fucking IMPRESSIVE and would do wonders for the yankees’ minor leagues.

      • Stryker says:

        whoops – didn’t even add meade, lyons, or breuning into that.

        it’s highly doubtful all of the guys remaining (even some we may want) will a) be offered contracts and b) sign with the team but one can hope!

        • Januz says:

          There is no doubt that they will not sign everyone (Breuning wants big money to sign, so he is a likely non-sign). I think it will be Meade or Lyons NOT both (They have shown that they will walk away from prospects who are unwilling to sign on their terms (See Bittle as just one example of this), and maybe McKenzie (He was impressive at his workout at the Stadium and he enjoyed his time there).

    • Mikebk says:

      i have 10 in mind
      heathcott and murphy are locks in my mind
      i think cotham, lyons and meade earned it if there was any doubt before the cape
      add in some other big potential guys in mckenzie, aplin, thompson, stoneburner, mitchell and this is a great draft.

  7. Accent Shallow says:

    Here’s hoping Humberto’s stuff has returned.

  8. steve (different one) says:

    Amazing how quickly depth can disappear.

    remember how mad everyone was when Cashman let the Sox get Smoltz?

  9. Charlie says:

    who gets sent down to AAA for Gaudin? Assuming clagget is sent down tommmorow for ramiro pena, which seems likely, do the yanks send down melancon for gaudin? I hope not, I think melancon can play a more important role

    • whozat says:

      Bruney hasn’t pitched since the first, and didn’t get into the blowout today…maybe he’s getting DLed?

      • Charlie says:

        good call, maybe. he’s sucked big time ever since he got hurt. or does he have options left? maybe he’s getting sent down?

        • whozat says:

          no options, no.

          Mitre, I believe, has options. Not positive, though.

          According to PeteAbe, Gaudin is joining on Sunday. So, honestly…they might just hang on to Claggett and then swap him for Gaudin. Or, dump Claggett for Pena and then send him back down for Gaudin…I dunno. I could see them going with a 13-man staff til Gardner comes back…Hairston gives them depth at basically every position, and they only thing that they couldn’t cover in an emergency is if Cano AND Jeter go down in the same game.

          • Sam says:

            Swisha at second?

            Does anyone know why Eduardo Sosa didn’t get into either game of the double-header today. Injured?

  10. JT says:

    I was wondering the same thing. Any news?

  11. JohnC says:

    Hopefully, hungry Humberto has finally turned things a corner. Good to see Barreda continue to put up zeroes after coming back from TJ surgery. Just hope Betances returns to the mound before the season ends.
