Rookie GCL Yanks had their game suspended with two outs in the top of the ninth. Serious. Here’s the box score, I’ll update the stats when they complete the game tomorrow.

Both High-A Tampa and Short Season Staten Island had scheduled days off. SI is off until Wednesday for the All-Star break. The actual game will be played tomorrow.

    Pretty quiet night from the farm system.

  • Richard Leo

    a boring day in the farm

  • Steve (different one)

    Nuno will need more than words to calm his extreme HR tendencies of late.

    • Robinson Tilapia

      ISWYDT

    • Dave M

      That was Extreme! :-)

  • Brian S.

    Adonis or Mustelier?

    • Robinson Tilapia

      Older Cuban guy hitting at AAA versus not-as-old Cuban guy starting to hit at AA? Go with the guy hitting at the higher level.

    • Richard Leo

      Mustelier can play more positions

  • Wayne

    Did Rafael depaula pitch today

    • Richard Leo

      5IP 2H 1BB 8K
      He must be bored

      • Dave M

        Man. They’ve got to get that guy over here. Enough of this already!

  • Uke S.

    How old is Adonis?

    • Robinson Tilapia

      26

      • Uke S.

        Well that’s disappointing

  • Steve S

    Can I give up on Bichette?

    • Uke S.

      You can do as you like.

    • YanksFanInBeantown

      The 19-year old in full season ball?

      Go for it, bro.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/AngeloInNY Angelo

      Nowhere near that point. If this happens in Low-A next season, then sure. That’s when you can start to give up.

      • Dave M

        I agree. Start him in Low A again next year. Hopefully, he starts off hot and moves up to high A

    • JohnC

      Sure. WOuldn’t be the first time you did

    So nobody is going to go crazy about how great some prospect is on a boring day of the farm system?

    Interesting. I’m pretty sure if Aune goes 4-4 tomorrow, someone will talk about how he’s going to be the next great Yankee.

  • Rick

    What does this even mean?

    Must have been lunch time. The PB&Js and chocolate milk were baking in the noon-time sun.
