  • BX hates hipsters

    Looks like Sanchez and Williams are heating up for a AA promotion

    • Deathstroke Heathcott

      Isn’t Mason hitting like .240?

      • BX hates hipsters

        I said heating up…he was slumping, now he looks to be heating up…If he gets to .270 or above by late June he will be in AA. By then Austin will be in AAA. AA should have a outfield of Heathcotte, Williams and Flores.

        • qwerty

          This is highly unlikely.

  • Novas inflating WHIP

    Did Mustelier have any ABs in extended spring training?

    • Mike Axisa

      Yes, but I don’t know how many.


    Is Mustelier auditioning for the “Ben Francisco” Memorial no-hit RH off the bench?

    (I keed.)

    • Horizontal Pinstripe

      For what it’s worth, Ben Fran did rip a frozen rope in his PH appearance last night. Unlucky it was right at the 3b man.

  • trr

    good stuff

  • TinePar

    Seems like every update now consists of Refsnyder having a multi-hit game.

  • KCSwiss

    Get Refsynder to double A

    • The Troll Monger

      And Shane Greene too.

  • Howard Cosell

    Stoneburner situation has a little Alan Horne to it. Hoping its just a little….

    But one solid year in Scranton and he is certainly trade bait for something – in the Kontos mode.

    Cant see him making the Yankees next year with Robertson, Montgomery, Clairborne,Chamberlain Warren etc….Ofcourse one big trade involving a couple of these relievers and

    Stoneburner is back in the picture….

    • coolerking101

      I recall reading an interview with Newman or some other Yankee exec last year who suggested Stoneburner is a step above an org arm. The suggestion was that he doesn’t have the stuff to be major league starting pitcher.

  • Robert

    Was at the Trenton game last nite,Standouts were JR Murphy both AB and behind the plate as well as Tyler Austin. Nick Turley still not sold on,he threw alot of pitches.He gave up Two monster HR to Cesar Puello (he is on the Met 40 man Ros).
    Nice touch David Eckstein WS MVP had his Trenton Thunder Number retired (2) before the game.
    I wonder if Jeter does a rehab here will he wear #2?

  • Coolerking101

    Adams is right handed bat hitting .345/.410 in the last ten games. Think he wants a promotion next week or what? Dude’s OBP in his last 600 minor league at bats is above .400. Come May 15, the Yanks need to give this guy a shot.

    • gageagainstthemachine

      Still really puzzling why he was the one who was released in the first place when they needed a spot on the 40 man at the time. Seems like CoJo (if not someone else) would’ve been the smarter cut. Luckily for the Yankees they were able to get him back. How awesome (albeit unlikely) would it be if he somehow went on to Yankee greatness after all this. Don’t really see it happen, but who the hell knows, right?

  • Joe

    I see the Yankees bullpen next year with all internal guys such as:
    Rondon/any other loogy
    Kahnle/Pinder if ready

    • Joe

      For other possible LOOGYs I thought of:
      Bleich(former 1st Round pick!)
