    You sure I didn’t write this DotF?

  • wilcymoore27

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

    • http://twitter.com/TylerWilkinson T-Dubs

      I don’t even know where to look for the splits (BR didn’t have them) but I swear Sosa hits better when he plays CF.

        we miss you MinorLeagueSplits.com

  • Steve O

    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

      he will be a polished turd before you know it.

      • Brian in NH

        Mythbusters proved you CAN polish a turd!

      • JCK

        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

      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.

  • jay bruin

  • JonS

    What is Phelps ceiling?

    • Coolerking101

      Back of the rotation arm.

    • MikeD

      …about the same as Nova. #4 or #5.

    • lady gaga

      • http://n/a Steven’s Yankees

        Lady Gaga, do the world a favor and go fuck yourself, Nova is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        P.S.

        Lady Gaga eats shit and loves it,which explains why she can’t sing a note.

        • Gonzo

          I can’t be the only guy on here that thinks the real Lady Gaga is hot. Right?

          • http://twitter.com/#!/riddering Riddering

            The real Lady Gaga is a perfect human being.

            • JMK

              Disagree. Looks too much like a tranny.

              <333 hi, flawless.

  • http://salarydump.com Jesus Montero

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

    • FOURGE POSADA HEHE

      IM A CORE FOARRR!!!

    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.

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

    http://www.nydailynews.com/spo.....ousin.html

    Not Good.

    • Steve Trout

      Traded at the deadline. The Yankees don’t tolerate this kind of stuff, even if it’s because he’s only 18.

      Not advocating it, just predicting it.

      • http://yankeeanalysts.com Matt Imbrogno

        Gary Sanchez has very little trade value.

      • http://www.twitter.com/deanezag Zack D

        It took Jose Tabata like 4 incidents and decrease in results before he was traded.

        • El Anonimo

          Yes but Tabatq was in Double A. Sanchez is in Ex ST

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