  1. “Ramon Flores, LF: 3 for 3, 3 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 2 BB – heart him”

    You sure I didn’t write this DotF?

  2. wilcymoore27 says:

    The reason there’s no Slade is that Sosa is better.

  3. Steve O says:

    21.0 scoreless innings in a row for Venditte. Can help but to root for this guy. He is one of my favorite prospects to follow.

    • lady gaga says:

      he will be a polished turd before you know it.

      • Brian in NH says:

        Mythbusters proved you CAN polish a turd!

      • JCK says:

        People say that every year… RAB never gives him the time of day. “Non-prospect” prospects turn into something once in awhile, though. Not everyone else is filler.

    • Brian in NH says:

      wouldn’t call him a prospect as a 25 yo slop thrower in AA. But he’s fun to follow thats for sure. i’m definitely rooting for the guy. prob won’t make it with the yanks, but I’m sure the royals or pirates would trot him out in a few years.

  4. jay bruin says:

    Mathew thats right on! Brook is lying througgh his Yellow ugly stained teeth! must of been an angry child !

  5. When did the Yankees sign Jason Place?

  6. JonS says:

    What is Phelps ceiling?

  7. Wouldn’t it be easier for me to just DH for the Scranton New York Yankees?

  8. Riddering says:

    Ramon Flores, LF: 3 for 3, 3 R, 1 3B, 1 RBI, 2 BB

    I’m just going to stare at that line for a while. Wow.

  9. dennis says:

    Gary Sanchez sent back to Tampa due to ‘attitude problem’ with Charleston team

    Not Good.

    Eric Wordekemper came in to pitch one out, but gave up a two-run double before recording the one strikeout. Lovely stuff.
