  1. Flores and Maquinito are killing it; Stoneburner better be as hot as his name sounds.

    Then again, when you pitch like that.

  2. Will in NJ says:

    I’m digging mitchell’s statline tonight. I’m curious, is his ceiling higher or lower than jose ramirez’s?

  3. Jobamania aka EvoLuTioN says:

    is it just me or brackman hasn’t been pitching?

  4. Maybe Elam slipped the ump a $20 pregame. That would make sense.

  5. For anyone interested, I have a profile going up on Shaeffer Hall tomorrow AM at TYU. He’s in the top 3 in 6 of 8 categories on the PP org charts, yet there’s very little info out there on the guy. It’s called “The Best Yankee Prospect You’ve Never Heard of”.

    BTW-There’s a reason why he doesn’t get hyped. His stuff is underwhelming. Great command, works quickly. Marl Buerhle type if he pans out.

  6. Captain Jack says:

    Why did Stonebrunner and Ramirez only go five innings? What was their PC?

  7. camilo gerardo says:

    I like Sosa’s nice run and Mesa’s resurgence

  8. Wilson Ramos since being traded to the Nats: .400/.400/.733 in AAA

  9. 28 in '10 says:

    Great pitching night. Pendleton was really strong until the end of his stint, and that combined 1-hitter in SI is awesome despite it not being attached to a strong prospect.

  10. Larry says:

    Jose Quintana appears to know what he is doing (http://www.minorleaguesplits.c.....?pl=500779).

  11. dennis says:

    Mitchell last 2 starts: 10IP 2H 2BB 10K.
    anyone have any velocity reading? pre draft he was 91-93 with a plus curve.

  12. JGS says:

    Does Kuo have a translator? Just curious in light of Ozzie’s recent comments

  13. boogie down says:

    So where does Jose Ramirez start next season? Does Tampa with a mid-season move up to AA (if he does well) sound reasonable?

    • zs190 says:

      Seems very aggressive but Yanks do like to push their top prospects through the system at accelerated pace if they really like them.

      I still think most likely he spends all of next year in Tampa.

    • camilo gerardo says:

      seems a no-brainer, unless something drastic happens de ahora hasta entonces

  14. Rob Has no Innings Limit says:

    Re: Tonight

    Yawn. I’ll be back tomorrow for Brackmeezy and Zeus!

  15. GermanYankee says:

    just realized that Stoneburner is def playing for the right team: anybody knows what his name would be if u translate it to German? Steinbrenner!!

  16. is david adams done for the season?
