SI Yanks take home NYPL Championship


In case you missed it earlier, Dante Bichette Jr. was named the GCL MVP.

Short Season Staten Island (2-1 win over Auburn) SI swept the best-of-three Championship Series, so congrats to them … it’s SI’s sixth league title since 2000, and their first since, well, since 2009
Mason Williams, CF: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 SB – also made a big extra base hit saving catch in the late innings, and went first-to-third on a wild pitch
Cito Culver, SS: 0 for 3, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB, 1 E (fielding)
Ben Gamel, RF: 1 for 2, 1 2B, 2 BB – nice game, though one of the walks was intentional
Tyler Austin, 3B: 2 for 4, 1 RBI, 1 K1 CS
Reymond Nunez, 1B: 0 for 4, 1 K
Casey Stevenson, DH: 0 for 4, 2 K
Zach Wilson, LF: 1 for 3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI – solo homer in the second opened the scoring
Angelo Gumbs, 2B: 0 for 3, 1 K
Nick McCoy, C: 1 for 3, 1 K
Matt Tracy, LHP: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 8-3 GB/FB - second straight money performance in the postseason
Zach Arneson, RHP: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 0-2 GB/FB
Phil Wetherell, RHP: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K, 0-2 GB/FB
Branden Pinder, RHP: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 3-1 GB/FB

Triple-A Scranton, Double-A Trenton, High-A Tampa, and Low-A Charleston all failed to qualify to the postseason. The Rookie GCL Yankees have already won their league title.

So that’s it folks, no more DotF for a while. I’ll do mini-updates once the Arizona Fall League season starts (Oct. 4th), plus regular updates about the winter leagues in Latin America. See you in a few weeks.

    Can’t wait for the championship parade, you guys.

    Another season of DotF, come and gone, sad times. Thanks for all the posts Mike. You should put Brackman on the prospect watch next year just for the laughs.

  4. Plank says:

    Woo-hoo. Two Yankees championships in one year is pretty good. Of course, having another in October/November would be even better.

  5. Yanks99 says:

    Who is the next prospect watch?!?!?

    Compiling, commenting, and general all-around prospect knowledge is very much appreciated.

    Ditto on the thanks for the DotF. It must be time consuming and it’s just another example of what makes this site rise above the rest.

    Mike, your dotf saved me when the big team didn’t play well… That just means they’ll play well the rest of the way right?

    Niiiiice! Congrats to S.I. Yankees. Thanks for the hard work pulling DOTF updates nightly.

    Time to call up Bichette. He’s already won two championships this year. Maybe he is our lucky charm!

    Best draft pick ever!!!!

    Thanks Mike. DoTF is usually the first thing I read when I get up in the morning. I’m really gonna miss it.

  16. Dennis says:

    Tracy is a lefty with 91-93 Fb and developing off speed stuff. Could be someone to watch in full season next year.
