Thread: Slade Heathcott

  1. #1

    Slade Heathcott

    Well short season is nearly a month away, and I anticipate Slade Heathcott's season at Staten Island. I'm looking forward to a solid season of development at Staten Island. If he is injury free and plays the full season at Staten Island (about 60 games) I anticipate the 19 year old first round pick to excite Yankees with a solid average (e.g., 280-310), and upwards of high single digit dingers (6-10).

    Heathcott will probably start the season as the leadoff hitter - I'm excited to see how many stolen bases he gets, and his development as a true five-tool player. Can't wait to see the kid play.
    Royal Flush: Hughes, Sabathia, Betances, Brackman, Banuelos.

    Re: Slade Heathcott

    if everything goes well, our OF by 2011 will be heathcott, gardner, and colin curtis with greg golson as a legit option off the bench

    I see the Royal Flush has been revised. I'm surprised Z-Mac is one of the five.

    Re: Slade Heathcott

    and then if everything goes well on the pitching side of things, we could see betances and brackman being weened into the majors in the bullpen by 2011 as well, with betances eventually stepping into the rotation when CC opts out and brackman staying in to take care of 8th innings duties after joba inherits the crown from mariano

    No way, man. 200 > 70. Brackman HAS to be in the rotation

    brackman doesn't get as amped up when he starts a game... he needs the thrill of the 8th to get his juices flowing and throw hard

    Great, more armchair analysis. Are you at all familiar with his stuff?

    of course, he throws somewhere in the 90's, but when he has some added adrenaline going, he can hump it up into somewhere in the 90's

    haha I used to just lurk around here and I remember seeing that and thinking that was pretty cool. I can't even remember the original one but I know it had Clippard in it haha.

    As for Slade I really hope they move him to Charleston, would be exciting to see how he does.

    I never had Clippard in the flush. I never saw him as an elite starter.

    Thanks - I think..

    Man, Lost is one of the few things worth watching on TV. I'll just have to fork over cash for all the DVD's when its over.

    I'm really looking forward (and some regret at it being the last show) to Sunday.

    It turns out that JR Murphy got assigned to C-Town. I hope they still put Slade in SI, its closer to home for me.

    He's most similar (coming out of HS, and, as an athlete) with Ron Blomberg (1st overall pick in 1967). Unfortunately the Yankees started platooning Blomberg and he never became an every day player. Lets hope we get more out of Slade's career.

    Blomberg was a tremendous athlete coming out of HS. In today's scouting parlance he was toolsy.

    Bloomberg's problem was he was injury prone, like Nick Johnson. Always had problems with his shoulder cause he was so muscle bound and swung so hard. When he did play regularly, he was a very good hitter. A shame injuries ruined his career.

    With the platooning and the injuries he never quite lived up to expectations, although he sure flashed while he played for us.

    Re: Slade Heathcott

    Although this article

    http://mlb.fanhouse.com/2010/03/28/s...hitting-prosp/

    was posted earlier this spring, it should give Yankee fans something to go on with respect to the kind of player we can expect as Heathcott starts short season baseball at Staten Island in less than three weeks.

    I saw him on Facebook messenger earlier today and was actually going to ask him, but I got caught up in work.
