More mainstream love for the Yankee farm system

The New York Post’s Kevin Kernan is arguably one of the worst mainstream writers covering the Yankees today — and that’s saying a lot, considering the sheer volume of people competing for that particular honor — but he’s got a great piece up today about Dellin Betances, and it also features brief looks at some of the other promising names we’ve heard so much about this winter, including Manny Banuelos and Andrew Brackman (of course), as well as D.J. Mitchell, Hector Noesi, Ivan Nova, David Phelps and Adam Warren.

  1. Thank you, Larry, for the heads up on the Post article. It is, indeed, an excellent piece on our pitching prospects.

    Boy, I knew the kid was big, but 6' 8" and 270 pounds! "Holy cow!" (Said in honor of the dearly departed.)

    And what can you say about a mid- to upper-90s fastball, and 108 strikeouts and only 22 walks in 85 1/3 innings other than, PLEASE, oh, please be ready to play in NYC sometime this year!

    If he starts out at Trenton, I hope I can get to one of his games before he gets promoted to AAA.

    Thanks again, Larry, that was a great note on which to hit the sack for the night.
