    Re: Offseason All-Purpose Minor League Thread

    I agree we took a hit this off season but 25th behind the Mets is just crazy talk...Where has this guy been all off season .....The GM said himself he didn't have the depth in his system to make trades he would have liked too. Then to blow off Romine who was pretty much listed as untouchable isn't mentioned and rated behind A 1st year drafted of ?????

    RE: Stanton for Romine; both would have to put up same numbers in AA for a trade to be plausible to Marlins, but obv there is a lot more hope for stanton, because he still had good isolated discipline, while Austin needs to work on that, and we all know prospect trading doesn't happen often

    He's touched 96 I thought.

    For all of us who are too cheap or just broke, what did Law say about Montero?

    Montero is really a "CINO" (catcher in name only), as few people outside the Yankees organization believe the giant player -- listed at 6-4, 225 pounds, although he's bigger than that now -- can stay behind the plate, even with the improvement in his throwing in 2009. Montero's ticket to the big leagues is his bat, and his hitting style is similar to that of another big guy who spent a lot of his career at DH: Frank Thomas. Montero transfers his weight early and hits off his front foot, but he generates tremendous bat speed and is so strong that he hits and hits for power regardless of the fact that he's on that lead foot. Behind the plate, he has arm strength and has improved his accuracy, but he's so big that he doesn't move quickly enough to catch in the big leagues, and his receiving has never been a strength. His bat is so far ahead of his glove anyway that it might end up making sense for the Yankees to employ him as a major league DH soon rather than wait for him to develop as a catcher, knowing that there's a good chance the latter won't happen.

    Funny, he says that Banuelos and McAllister are basically interchangeable on the list, and you could take one out and put the other in....so uhh...why not just rank them back to back, and move Boston's right handed Igawa down and/or off.

    I think it's safe to say that he overrated every single Red Sox prospect on that list, the fact that he lives near Boston is a pretty clear indication that he's getting the majority of his information from that organization.

    I'm really intrigued by Jose Ramirez.

    Re: Offseason All-Purpose Minor League Thread

    Maybe the expected emergence of Jose Ramirez was the reason they could afford to part with Viz, though I still wish they would have kept him.

    It is not really that "shockly." Law knows his stuff, he just lets his bias intercede when it comes to the Yankees [negativity] and Red Sox [nobslobbering].

    His top 100 list is a joke even though you ignore his Red Sox love. Eric Hosmer over Pedro Alvarez, Brett Wallace over Chris Carter, Josh Vitters at #30, Zach Britton at #25 while Jake Arrieta at #90, etc.

    Hosmer's ranking is ugly. Britton and Arrieta should be very close.
    Rizzo is perhaps the worst thing I see. No Reddick (Shocking). Overrated every SS. And Lars...
    I cannot believe how bad this list is.

    • Newman on the Golson addition: “Big run and throw tools. Who knows? We’re going to work at it. When we traded Austin Jackson, we lost our plus run tool at Triple-A.”
    • Newman on David Winfree: “We think Winfree has significant upside. We think he’s a prospect. We think he’s still in the growth phase as a player.”
    • I get asked a lot about the idea of moving one of the team’s premier catching prospects to the outfield, so I asked Newman about it. “Sometimes if you have depth at a premium position, and quality depth, you can turn those guys into another player by trades,” he said. “Sometimes that’s the way it works out. But I don’t see that with any of our guys because we’re going to need catching in the big leagues.”
    • Speaking of catchers, Newman said Gary Sanchez is already hitting and working out in Tampa. “What a tool package,” Newman said. “Wow. Arm strength. Power.” I told Newman that I’ve heard him get excited about Sanchez before. “He’s better now,” Newman said.
    • Speaking of power, here’s a name to remember: First baseman Reymond Nunez hit 10 homers in 59 Dominican Summer League games last season. He’s 19 years old, and Newman said he hit a home run a few days ago at the minor league complex that bounced onto the Dale Mabry Highway. For those who have never been out there, trust me, that’s insane.

    I saw him last year a few times and he really didn't look bad.

    As a matter of fact, I didn't even notice him for a couple of innings, which if he was as bad as everyone makes out, that wouldn't happen. Heck Posada constantly reminds us that he is back there.

    CLANG!
