Not a shock. Who is next to get called up? Rasner has been pitching well and our old friend Ramiro M has nice numbers.

Thank you Mr. Bean for your service.

He was already selected once in the Rule 5 draft (by the Red Sox) and subsequently given back to the yanks. The yanks appear to not be the only team uninterested in playing him in the bigs.

38, looks like you were right about Colter. As I said yesterday, I had making a judgement after 1 inning, but I don't think he would do any good up in the majors. Maybe he'll get another shot with a different team.

I think his body of work at the ML level isn't enough to make a real informed decision on his overall ability.

From anecdotal evidence and minor league stats, I don't think Big Bean has the stuff to get ML hitters out on a consistent basis. But then again, neither does Scott "Walk on By" Erickson.

This is terrible news, everyone knows that players in our farm system that have good numbers against AAA players are better than free agents.

05-24-06, 09:24 AM
Hey gang, gdn here. Like most of you, I too am embarrassed and disappointed in what is turning out to be one of the worst roster moves in Yankee history. Tino is gone, Bernie should be long gone, Flaherty has been sacked, and now Flash is gone as well. And what did we get in return?? A pack of bubble gum and a used 10 speed with no chain. Now I for one am tired of seeing all of the NY legends leave, and there are still a few loose ends we need to tie up as the team rebounds from injuries. Well my major concern is making sure that we hope that one of our remaining pitching heroes, Colter Bean, clears waivers. Now I have heard all of the trash talk about how Colter was horrible in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, etc, etc, etc, but I still cant find a better option out there for his going rate of 300K. Keep in mind that Colter was hurt in 2005, but was a great help in 2006 with his 33 strikeouts in 26 innings in about 18 games of play, not bad when you put it all together. If we really are going to go with Erickson and Myers as every day players, then we need a solid side-armer in the bullpen. We cant go with Chad Bradford or Josh Schmidt yet, and we sure dont want to try to resurrect the QuanGor experiment, so who else can we have a soft-tosser? Colter Bean is a proven warrior, a fighter, and a mentor to the younger players like Cano. He is in great shape, and my guess is that he's 100% from his most binge. With all of the uncertantities looming, all of the questions left unanswered, why not bring back something that already works? Like I said before, "If it aint broke, then why try to fix it" Colter isnt finished just yet, so why not give him another shot? I really want to see him back in '06 as a player for the NY Yankees. We must not bring in another 20 yr old minor league player that has less than 2 yrs in the majors under his belt, and brings a .200 Opp. batting avg to the table, when we have a 29 yr old with 4 yrs in the majors, and a heart that keeps on ticking. Please join this petition to Mr. Steinbrenner for the return of Colter before its too late. We waited too long on Gordon, and he left, lets not do the same with Colter. Thank you and God bless.

Two whole games. Wow I'll never understand the mindset that every 30 year old we bring up needs a three month trial. There was more evidence against this guy than even the usual career minor leaguers we drag up.

Yeah I don't get the love for Colter Bean either. Any scouting report I've ever seen on him had him pegged as a AAAA pitcher who relies on a deceptive delivery to get minor league hitters out. He gets murdered in spring training and has been hit hard the few regular season games that he has appeared in so I'm thinking that scouting report is pretty much spot on. So what is the justification for Bean taking up a roster spot? His 80 MPH fastball or his inability to spot his slider for a strike? Or how about the fact that he is absolutely useless against lefties? There's a reason he is a career minor leaguer.

DFA is for a guy who is out of options, so has to go through waivers before he can be sent back to your own minor league system. Guys like Mitch Jones or Kevin Reese still have options, so we can send them up and down as much as we like without them having to clear waivers.

DFA means that you have 10 days to trade or release a player. Usually that has to do with passing a guy through waivers because he has no options left, but in Bean's case (who has 1 option year left), it's because they want him off the 40 man roster.

I was wondering about that right after I posted, because I didn't think Bean was out of options. Thanks for the clarification.

I'm also pretty sure that these are the same results any time he faces big league hitters. Look at his ST numbers. There may, in fact, be a reason he's 29 and in AAA.

And a reason why the Red Sox grabbed him in the Rule 5 draft a couple of years ago, and later returned him.

He told he that he announced his resignation as a Yankee fan when Small got DFA'd, and when Ruben got released by the Twins he said he officially retired as a baseball fan.
