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.

    Pretty quiet night from the farm system.

  2. Richard Leo says:

    a boring day in the farm

  3. Steve (different one) says:

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

  4. Brian S. says:

    Adonis or Mustelier?

  5. Wayne says:

    Did Rafael depaula pitch today

  6. Uke S. says:

    How old is Adonis?

  7. Steve S says:

    Can I give up on Bichette?

  8. Angelo says:

    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.

  9. Rick says:

    What does this even mean?

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