  1. maybe i missed it,.. but mlb announced yesterday i think that cano is in the top 5 for the mvp voting.

    why isnt jeter in the top 5? jeter led mlb in hits,.. hit safley in 128 games,…. and woulda scored a lot more runs had cano hit while jeter was on base.

  2. i hope this link works for all. Top prospect list for Yankees from baseball america. enjoy. http://ht.ly/f9ELt

  3. my favorite part of the list….

    BEST
    TOOLS
    Best Hitter for Average Tyler Austin
    Best Power Hitter Gary Sanchez
    Best Strike Zone Discipline Taylor Dugas
    Fastest Baserunner Mason Williams
    Best Athlete Mason Williams
    Best Fastball Jose Ramirez
    Best Curveball Bryan Mitchell
    Best Slider Mark Montgomery
    Best Changeup Brett Marshall
    Best Control Caleb Cotham
    Best Defensive Catcher Austin Romine
    Best Defensive Infielder Cito Culver
    Best Infield Arm Cito Culver
    Best Defensive OF Mason Williams
    Best Outfield Arm Slade Heathcott

  4. Biggest surprise would have to be Heathcott over Sanchez and Austin. What do you guys think about that?

    • I’d agree Heathcott has always been a big talent. It’s just the injuries that keep getting in the way.

    • Heathcott is a tremendous talent and probably has the highest ceiling of anyone in the Yankees system. However, he has so many question marks also which make it difficult to rank him. His last 2 years have been very good . He played very well before injuring the shoulder again in 2011 and had a strong finish to this year and in the Arizona league. I think a guy like Austin has a much higher probability to hit his ceiling as a player but Slade has scary potential……runs and fields like Gardner (not quite as fast) and has ability to hit for average and power.

        GIV E ME A FRIGGIN BREAK

      • old yankee, sounds reasonable to me, I can’t wait to see Monte and Ardsma. Heathcott looks to get a chance.

  6. the 25 man roster::::::::::::::::::::
    jeter——————–17 million
    ichiro——————-??
    teixera—————–22.5 million
    cano——————–15 million
    arod———————28 million
    granderson————15 million
    martin——————-??
    gardner——————??
    stewart—————–??
    sabathia—————–23 million
    kuroda——————–??
    petite———————-??
    hughes——————–??
    nova————————??
    mariano——————-??
    robertson—————-??
    joba————————-??

    left handed utility outfielder / dh–??
    relif 4—??
    relief 5–??
    relief 6–??
    relief 7–??

    TOTAL == 120.5 MILLION FOR 6 PLAYERS

    NEED TO DETERMINE THE SALARIES FOR 19 OTHER PLAYERS ACCORDING TO BASEBALL REFENCE.COM

    FISCAL RESPONSIBLITY SAYS THE YANKEES HAVE 59.5 MILLION TO DIVIDE BETWEEN THOSE 19 PLAYERS, TO KEEP A 25 MAN ROSTER AT 179 MILLION, TO ENSURE A 40 MAN ROSTER OF 189 MILLION

    THIS IS GOING TO BE HARD TO DO,….. IF YOU LOOK UP AND DOWN THIS LIST OF UNKNOWN SALARIES ON THIS DATE

  7. players are just gonna have to take less money or walk,….. not only this season,,, but next season too,…… , and going forward,…….. when free agency comes, they can take it or leave it,……… the yankees have to get a 25 man roster down to 179 million,…… thats just the way it is,…….. if every unknown of the list above got what they wanted,… the 2013 payroll would once again be well over 200 million,…. sorry

    IT WAS PUT GOOD THE OTHER DAY BY A GUY ON WFAN, EVAN I THINK,.. who said sports teams are like a public trust between the owners and the fans,… because the money, ultimately, comes from the public, one way or another.

    this is what i have been sayting for a very long time,.. for years

    and it is true

    the fans do not want to keep taising payrool and add cost onto the public,.. sometimes even the public at large

    so,……. we can see a very different team by start of 2014,, maybe even this season ,.. if players are unbwilling to take less, and burn the bridges, and walk,…… as is their right,……

    as the article showed today,..THE YANKEES GOT A TON OF YOUNG TALENT THAT THEY OBVIOUSLY HOPE THEY CAN MIX IN TO PLAY
