Forum: Around The Minors

Who's coming up? Who's going down? What's happening with the Yankees Minor League clubs?

  1. Alex Graman Struggling...

    Alex Graman, the Yankees' top pitching prospect by most accounts (after all, Keisler and Lilly can't really be considered prospects anymore), is having a pretty bad season in AA. His 4.62 ERA is pretty big, and he's allowed 15 <i>unearned</i> runs. His strikeout-to-walk ratio is decent, 69:38, but not outstanding. You can ride potential for a few years, but eventually, shouldn't you start getting people out? Shouldn't we expect a little bit more at AA from a college pitcher? Does anybody...

  2. Hopes and Dreams in Minor League Baseball

    I recently reviewed “Hopes and Dreams in Minor League Baseball" and you can read about it at: http://www.netshrine.com/hopes.html If you're a fan on the minors, I recommend this video. PS - for the record, I have nothing to do with the video - I was merely asked to review it by its producer.

  3. A Weird Night at Keyspan

    Monday night I went to the Cyclones' Keyspan Park. A beautiful place, nice atmosphere - and a very loud PA system. But such is the way things are everywhere in sports these days. The Cyclones beat and pummeled the Red Sox' Lowell Spinners right into the ground. The 'clones even had a no-hitter going until one out in the eighth. A couple of weird points. It seems in A level baseball the manager lets the starter go three innings no matter how awful he is. The Cyclones' pitcher walked...

  4. Chad Ogea!

    Yankees take shot on Ogea Sunday, July 1, 2001 Yankees owner George Steinbrenner never could resist the chance to author a good storybook ending. You know, the one where he rescues an aging or injured veteran from the scrapheap and revives his career.

  5. A Ballpark Grows In Brooklyn

    Keyspan Park is just about ready to go and so are the Cyclones. The ballpark is on the site of the old and legendary Steeplechase Park, which was torn down starting in 1967, and is in the shadow of the landmark and newly repainted Parachute Jump. The old (going back to the 1920's) roller coaster, The Thunderbolt, has been razed and removed. It sure looks weird at Coney without it there covered in ivy, as it was. I have my tickets already for when the Staten Island Yankees come in. ...

  7. Pete Rose, Jr

    The Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic Independant league announced yesterday that they signed Petey Jr. as a reserve IF/OF. I thought he was totally out of baseball. Anyway maybe I'll see him play tonight.

  9. Good day for prospects not named Jimenez

    Nick Johnson and Juan Rivera both hit home runs today (both in losing causes, sadly) to celebrate their being named to play in All-Star Futures game in Seattle. This will be the second such game for The Stick, who also played in the Futures game in Boston in '99. Remember, that was the game where current second baseman (and star of today's game against Detroit) Alfonso Soriano was the MVP.

  10. Henson & Johnson Article

    http://www.timesdispatch.com/sports/MGBJ5XMVHOC.html It hasn't happened yet, but Drew Henson knows he will miss football, for sure by Labor Day. He's prepared. Henson began looking ahead at the fork in the road years ago. Baseball or football? "I love to get up every day and play a game," Henson said. "That's always been more attractive to me than what's involved in playing a football season." So instead of this quarterback preparing for his senior year at Michigan, from which he...

  11. Walling Will Give it Another Shot

    http://nydailynews.com/2001-06-27/Metro_Sports/Baseball/a-116350.asp Each time David Walling threw from the stretch position, the uneasiness came back. It was so crippling sometimes that he could think of nothing else but the runner on first base, his concentration turned to mush. "It was a battle for me to come set without the anxiety of needing to throw to first," Walling said. "I was too focused on the runner at first base instead of the batter, like I needed to be. I lost location on...

  12. John Sickels thoughts on Brandon Claussen

    Brandon Claussen, SP, New York Yankees (Norwich -- Double-A) John Sickels: Claussen has moved up quickly this year. He dominated high A ball in Tampa, and he's holding his own in Norwich. He still has some consolidation to do before he's ready to pitch in the bigs, but he's playing pretty well in Norwich. He might be a September callup in 2002. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/news/20010619huckabay.html

  13. The curse strikes Marte, Almonte and maybe others!!!!!

    I've done it again! For those who have seen my last post, you know what this is about, me accidentally destroying the carrers of any player I collect a card or autograph of. For the others who didn't see my last post, here's the story: Every time I buy a Yankee minor leaguer's card or get their autograph their career takes a turn for the worst, most of the time within a couple of weeks or so, but some within days! It's happened so many times, its almost scary....here's the list: Craig...

  14. Brett Jodie

    I am stupified, mystified, and downright clueless as to why this kid hasn't seen any major league ball yet. He's established himself in Columbus after playing for the Navigators last year. Two complete games, a shutout, a TON of innings pitched... Clearly he is no longer meant to pitch in the minors! The Yanks should send El Duquecito down and bring Jodie up. I don't want the Indians to get a chance to hammer Adrian again!!!

  16. Edison Reynoso News

    I know someone was asking about him and I saw this in today's NY Times: RHP Edison Reynoso, who was a spring training bullpen candidate for the Yankees before being sidelined by a groin injury, struck out five and allowed one hit over 3 2/3 shutout innings in his first outing for Class A Tampa on Wednesday night. Good for him!!

    http://www.nypostonline.com/sports/42333.htm By EVAN GROSSMAN June 25, 2001 -- The baseball last night was secondary on Staten Island. With a breathtaking view of the lower Manhattan skyline and New York Harbor, the Richmond County Bank Ballpark at St. George, home of the Staten Island Yankees, opened its doors for the first time. This may be minor- league baseball, but last night the Staten Island Yankees were treated like major-league All-Stars.

  18. Henson Quotes

    Columbus Dispatch reported : Notes: Third base prospect Drew Henson is scheduled to fly to Columbus this morning and could be in the Clippers lineup tonight. The 21-year-old Henson hit .368 (7 for 19) with two runs and a double in five games at double-A Norwich. Henson started slow in his first two games, going 1 for 7 with three strikeouts. "My timing wasn't there," Henson told the Norwich Bulletin of his early ...

  20. Yankees' New Staten Island Ballpark Is Ready

    The Staten Island Yankees' new ballpark in St George, Staten Island, almost adjacent to the ferry terminal, is ready. I already posted a thread about the Brooklyn Cyclones' new Keyspan Park at Coney Island in this forum. And it looks really good from the outside, slightly better than this "Ballpark at St George", as it is called. But I cajoled my way in and got a good look at the inside of the place. It is beautiful with a direct view from the seats of New York harbor and the skyline....
