    Just trying to get some fans guesses on a few players in the minors next year. What do you think will happen to Kevin Russo, Greg Golson, Justin Maxwell, Doug Bernier. These are the 4 off the top of my head I was wondering about. Thanks

    Would you say that out of those four players, Burawa is the only one that has a shot of making it on the Yankees?

    I saw Burawa in the Cape Cod league last year. At least 10 MLB scouts believed he’d make the majors. I know, because I asked all of them.
