    March 2012 Minor League Thread

    I just saw the 2nd string players for tonight's Yankees ST game VS Boston and SS Carmen Angelini is listed. I thought he was released in 2011 after a handful of game and missing all of 2010. How is it that he's available for tonight's game?

    By the time Betances lets the ball go, he's looking halfway between the plate and first

    Hard to imagine how he can be consistent doing that

    Because he wasn't released and will most likely play for Tampa in the FSL this year.

    This is Angelini's last chance to show something to justify the 1 mill bonus he stole from the Yanks. Lets hope he makes the most of it

    He did look good. Made me think of JVIS

    Very impressed with Mitchell, Phelps, & Warren.

    A part of me was dissapointed with the Pettitte return because I'd like to see one of these guys get a shot when the Yankees need a starter at some point.

    I'm sure other teams are watching too, though, and it won't be shocking if one of these guys gets dealt

    Every part of me was disappointed with Pettitte's return. I love Andy for what he did but with the system as deep as it is, this was completely unnecessary. Now with Joba's injury, I will be livid if Hughes loses his spot to Pettitte just saw he can get into the rotation.

    Yes that is a big assumption but it would not shock me.

    Re: March 2012 Minor League Thread

    I'm not sure that it's Hughes, and not Nova, that would be at risk. He did end his season on an injury and hasn't been that impressive this spring.

    But probably for another thread.

    Nova shouldn't be replaced either, assuming he isn't getting absolutely torched. They need to not hit the panic button if a young pitcher struggles. It'll be for the Yankees benefit if they let Nova do his thing at the ML level, & continue to learn how to get ML hitters out.

    Besides, Pettitte is no lock to provide anything positive to the team. He should only get into the rotation if he earns it & someone else is bombing.

    Frankie Piliere@FrankiePiliere Meanwhile in Yankee camp, Gary Sanchez looks fantastic. Launched an opposite field homer, lined single to right, and picked of runner at 1st

    Gary Sanchez just hit another opposite field rocket but right to right fielder. He's going to have a monster year #yankees
