MiLB Interviews: Davis, Cote, Bichette, Austin

Girardi: "I think it's important to our club that you add another bat"

Joe and I are skipping out on the podcast this week because frankly, there’s nothing to talk about. The big news of the week was Billy Eppler’s promotion, and I said everything that needed to be said about that in this post. Rather than waste 20 minutes talking about nothing, I’ll point you towards these minor league interviews that I’ve been hording over the last few days and weeks…

  • The Jacksonville Daily News interviewed 2012 14th rounder Rookie Davis, who spoke about his offseason work, Instructional League, and getting his driver’s license. Some pretty neat stuff in their, so check it out.
  • The New England Baseball Journal interviewed 2012 third rounder Jordan Cote about his offseason workouts with Kevin Youkilis, adjusting to life in pro ball, stuff like that.
  • Yankees Fans Unite interviewed Low-A Charleston hitting coach Greg Colbrunn, who spoke about a number of the team’s lower level (and some upper level) prospects like Ramon Flores, Gary Sanchez, etc.
  • NoMaas interviewed both Tyler Austin and Dante Bichette Jr., two of the club’s best position player prospects.

    Loved the Rookie Davis article. Very informative.

    Rookie Davis quote: “Jamie Moyer’s had one of the longest careers and he’s 82, 83.” Not sure whether he was referring to fastball velocity or age.

    Nothing to report? Another blog has some guy wearing Brian Cashman’s pajama pants and you guys can’t even come up with his golden Giambino thong? I’ve been led to expect so much more….

    Really liked the Rookie Davis’ interview. Colbrunn was a nice read too. Seems really high on Ramon Flores.
