    Maybe next year – Tabata or Jackson may stick…

  2. RayBlay March 11th, 2008 at 10:07 am

    is it just my comp or are the times off on the blog

  3. Jax March 11th, 2008 at 10:08 am

    If they have very good years this year they should.

  4. Lori March 11th, 2008 at 10:08 am

    Times are still off RayBlay. LoHud apparently hasn’t switched their server to daylight savings time yet.

  5. RayBlay March 11th, 2008 at 10:10 am

    ohhh no wonder….

    I wonder if we’ll see any of Miranda this year

  6. Jeff NJ March 11th, 2008 at 10:11 am

    How did Miranda do this spring? I thought he was supposed to challenge for 1st this spring? Is he going to AA or AAA?

  7. Jeff NJ March 11th, 2008 at 10:12 am

    Oh AAA for Miranda, guess this article was too long for me to catch all the details :-)

  8. jennifer- Hip Hip Jorge March 11th, 2008 at 10:13 am

    What are we down to? 50? Still have a lot of cuts to make.

    Also who is supposed to pitch the VT game?

  9. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 March 11th, 2008 at 10:16 am

    That AAA team is gonna be slick. Can’t wait to see ‘em.

    Does anyone know if today’s game is on YES?

  10. CB March 11th, 2008 at 10:19 am

    “Maybe next year – Tabata or Jackson may stick…”

    I think that’s unlikely, especially for Tabata because of his age.

    I think 2010 is more likely for Jackson – possibly Tabata but he might be 2011 given his age and how he’ll recover from last year’s wrist surgery this season.

    Jackson is still fairly raw – he started making the transition from athlete to baseball player second half of last season – he’s got the tools to come very quickly but there’s still a lot he needs to work on.

    Tabata is very young – he’ll be one of the youngest players in AA – and still is developing his ability to hit for power.

    The jump from A to AA is very big – many say its the largest jump any player has to make in the minors.

    Miranda we could see up at some time this year.

  11. Yanksgal07 March 11th, 2008 at 10:19 am

    Yes ..to Yes…it’s on today …wish I could see it. Damn work !!!

    Go Yankees 2008 !!

  12. gayle March 11th, 2008 at 10:19 am

    YES todays game is on YES

  13. JGNYC March 11th, 2008 at 10:21 am

    I think even the AA team is gonna be slick this year. I took a trip last summer down to Trenton to watch a game (I think it was around $20 for a seat in the home plate area), and I was lucky enough to see Joba start that game. He went 6 innings, gave up no runs, and struck out 7 i think. Not bad value for my dollar…

  14. jay destro March 11th, 2008 at 10:22 am

    i live really close to trenton, i am going to some games this year, will be a good team

  15. Jeff NJ March 11th, 2008 at 10:23 am

    Great article today on Ian Kennedy in the Daily News. http://www.nydailynews.com/spo.....eir_t.html

    He totally falls under the radar with Phil and Joba, but if he was the only young pitcher coming up, his hype would be so much more. Someone with a blog may even have nicknamed him “Ian Franchise”.

  16. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 March 11th, 2008 at 10:23 am

    Oooh awesome. Guess that means I should eat breakfast and shower…

    (Yeah, I love Spring Break)

  17. jennifer- Hip Hip Jorge March 11th, 2008 at 10:24 am

    I’m dvr’ing the game, I’ll skim it when I get home.

  18. Mike R. - The Anti-Anti March 11th, 2008 at 10:26 am

    The only guy on that list that would need a miracle to stick next year is Piliterre. The rest should have a chance. Miranda could come up this year. Tabata and Jackson start for the Yanks next year if they have a solid season at AA with some time at AAA, and Colin Curtis could make the team next year as a 4th OF if he breaks out this season.

  19. Patrick March 11th, 2008 at 10:26 am

    CB – You are way off base on this one I think. In my opinion Tabata will compete for the starting RF job in spring training 2009. At the very least both him and Jackson will be September call-ups in 2009. They will both be in the majors full-time in 2010.

  20. Yanksgal07 March 11th, 2008 at 10:28 am

    I have back to back games ..Opening Day ..then going to Trenton to see Scranton Yanks play Trenton Yanks on Tuesday.
    I have seats right behind Scranton dugout and they only cost $10.00..can’t beat the price. I’m just hoping it’s not SNOWING for either games !!

    Go Yankees 2008 !!!

  21. jennifer- Hip Hip Jorge March 11th, 2008 at 10:28 am

    Thanks for rubbing it in Rebecca. :( I’ve been up since 6 am, I am exhausted!! I never thought I’d say this, but I miss college.

  22. whozat March 11th, 2008 at 10:30 am

    “You are way off base on this one I think. In my opinion Tabata will compete for the starting RF job in spring training 2009.”

    And you base your opinion on what?

    Rushing players too fast is a sure way to negatively impact their development. Especially on a team that wants to compete in the post-season every year. Tabata has yet to show the power a RFer needs. Jackson has had ONE good half-season.

    They’re exciting young players, yes, but it is VERY unlikely that they will come that quickly.

  23. Brandon (Proud supporter of "Alex being Alex" ) (I slay the Anti) March 11th, 2008 at 10:31 am

    not fair I didn’t see Action or J-Tab on my HD screen :(

  24. Jax March 11th, 2008 at 10:31 am

    I don’t Tabata’s age will play a factor in if he has a shot at RF next year. It depends on his production this year. After all he is 19 in AA. That’s impressive right there.

  25. Mark Alan March 11th, 2008 at 10:36 am

    Pilittere might have caught each of Kennedy, Joba, and Hughes at Trenton. Did he get a shot at camp or is it back to AA for him, what with the new Moeller scrub at SWB.

  26. Patrick March 11th, 2008 at 10:39 am

    “And you base your opinion on what?”

    He is done with high A ball, will start at AA this season. Last season he hit over 300 with a broken bone in his hand. Like CB said the biggest jump is from A to AA (other than the jump to the majors). If he plays well this season in AA he will have very little left to prove. With his kind of talent there is no reason to play a full season in AAA. I expect him to hit very well this season in AA and get a late season call-up to AAA. If that happens what else does he have to prove?

    I guess it all comes down to our expectations. If you expect him to do poorly in AA this year then yeah he will have to spend more time in the minors but if you expect him to excel in AA then there is no reason to stay any longer. So my question to you is, do you expect him to bomb in AA this year?

  27. CB March 11th, 2008 at 10:44 am

    “CB – You are way off base on this one I think. In my opinion Tabata will compete for the starting RF job in spring training 2009.”

    Patrick – you’re entitled to your opinion. I just disagree. Not a big deal.

    I just don’t see 2009 as being realistic for Tabata.

    Tabata is only 19 right now. He’s shown great hand speed, hand eye coordination, and an advanced plate approach in the minors so far.

    All things you love to see from a prospect – and those are the reasons why he’s thought of so highly.

    But Tabata has a lot of work to do on his game – a lot. And that’s completely understandable because he’s only 19.

    The possibility of Tabata being an all star calliber player is still very much locked up in his potential. He hasn’t hit for power – at all during his minor league career. Not only doesn’t he hit many HR he hasn’t even gotten that many extra base hits. Look at his slugging percentages – they are not good.

    He also hits a very high percentage of balls on the ground suggesting he may be hitting down on the ball. The yankees may need to adjust his swing. It’s that kind of thing, as an example, that makes it very unlikely he’ll be ready in 2009, IMO.

    Again – those aren’t criticisms of him – he’s a player in development and I think he’ll hit for more power. How much? Hard to say. But it’ll improve.

    But his power hitting tools just aren’t there yet and they are not going to develop in the majors. They just won’t. You rush a guy like Tabata and you’re really doing him an injustice. We’ve seen this happen over and over with good prospects.

    That’s the biggest difference between Jackson and Tabata – Jackson has shown strong progression in his ability to drive the ball and hit for power. Tabata hasn’t.

    The jump from single A to double A is huge – tabata will already be amongst the youngest players in the league. The yankees have been very cautious with him. In all likelihood he’ll play the entire 2008 season in AA (as I think jackson will but he has more of a chance to get to AAA, IMO).

    In 2009 he’ll be pegged for AAA. Don’t sell that short – he’ll be in AAA by the time he’s 20!

    And another thing just for context – some scouts feel that Tabata’s work ethic is lacking. That he takes plays off and still isn’t dedicated to being in the best baseball condition possible. People think this will delay his progression.

    For him to be up in 2009 would place him in the majors at the age of 20. That’s basically the timeline you see with ultra-elite prospects like a Justin Upton or a jay bruce.

    Tabata is good – but he’s not even close to being in the class with that kind of player.

  28. whozat March 11th, 2008 at 10:50 am

    “After all he is 19 in AA. That’s impressive right there.”

    Sure. But he still hasn’t shown power. I expect his slugging to get better, as a result of having healthy wrists. But a guy his age is still filling out…the likelihood that he’d be able to slug enough to hold down RF in the majors a year from now is pretty low. I mean, CANO’s power is still developing, and he’s 25.

    Give the kid time to develop at an appropriate pace.

  29. Patrick March 11th, 2008 at 10:51 am

    CB,

    Basically my point is that if a player proves himself in AA there is very little purpose to spending an entire season in AAA. If you expect him to be in AAA in 2009 that means you think he will do very well in AA this year. The jump from AA to AAA is very minimal. Players like Jackson and Tabata should only need to spend a few months or less in AAA.

  30. Y's Guy March 11th, 2008 at 10:53 am

    you guys are really rushing very young guys with little to no aa experience. niether will be in the yanks lineup before mid season 09 at best.

    as for pilatelli, he may have more experience with hughes, but kennedy made only 9 starts at trenton and joba 7 (idk whether pilatelli caught all of them even)

    i have heard 2 different reporters ask joba how comfortable it is to have his minor league pitching coach (eiland) up with the yanks this season.
    eiland was joba’s minor league pitching coach for all of 8 innings last season

  31. CB March 11th, 2008 at 10:58 am

    “If you expect him to do poorly in AA this year then yeah he will have to spend more time in the minors but if you expect him to excel in AA then there is no reason to stay any longer. So my question to you is, do you expect him to bomb in AA this year?”

    You’ve set up a false dichotomy here. It’s not an either or where he’s going to excel OR bomb.

    It very well could be something in the middle.

    Chances are he’s going to play well – I think he’ll probably hit close to .300 or potentially higher. It wouldn’t surprise me if he finally hit .320 or .330 as people are expecting him to be able to do.

    But I don’t expect him to suddenly start hitting for tremendous power. In nothing else he’s coming off hamate surgery and many people say it takes a full season to completely recover from that. It’s not debilitating but it takes time to get your hands back into complete health.

    So he could very well have a mixed year – similar to what he’s done before. Nice average, limited power.

    If that’s the case then he does need more time in the minors.

    The question of how much power he will hit for and how much
    is a very real one for him. To say he will hit for power is pure projection at this point – until he demonstrates that skill it’s an open question.

    Those were big innings. ;)

    Thanks for the update.

  34. Jim March 11th, 2008 at 11:12 am

    This has nothing to do with this post, but I just read on ESPN.com that the Yankees are close to letting the last event at Yankee Stadium be a hockey game. Peter, I know you are against this as am I. Somehow Yankee fans need to let the organization know that it does a disservice to the integrity and legacy of the Stadium to have a hockey game be the final event. If there are any ideas from fellow Yankee fans on how to get the word out please act upon them.

  35. Y's Guy March 11th, 2008 at 11:16 am

    jim, judging by the replies on this log there is little resistance to the hockey game. the majority of the comments were either neutral or solidly in favor of the rangerr or giants closing out the stadium after the yanks finish

  36. back bench March 11th, 2008 at 11:28 am

    Don’t know if this was mentioned before, but XM radio did a whole program about the non-baseball events that took place at Yankee Stadium. For example, some of the greatest professional boxing matches took place right over 2nd base -70,000 fans or something like that.

    A book is being published this spring with all of these events covered.

  37. Mike S. March 11th, 2008 at 11:32 am

    Tabata had hand and wrist problems the past two years. He had his hamate bone removed late last year. We will see how his power numbers are this year.

    Ill see ya in Tampa next week.

  41. Jim March 11th, 2008 at 11:35 am

    I know; I read the comments. However, there is something to be said about tradition and identity. Yankee Stadium, in its history, has been host to many sporting events that were not baseball related, but its overall aura and legacy will be forever associated with baseball and the Yankees. Obviously…Now, I know that a hockey game, in reality, will not necessarily destory that legacy, but I feel that out of principal, and as Peter wrote, the last player/fan to leave the Stadium should be one associated with baseball. For me Yankee Stadium is a special place, as it is for many people. I no longer live and New York (Colorado now), but I try to make it out at least once a year to catch up with family and catch a Yankee game. My point is that there is no place more special to catch a ballgame then Yankee Stadium. To me that says a lot about what the final sporting event should be at that historic site.

  42. saucY March 11th, 2008 at 11:35 am

    if i could go back in time, i’d love to see the u2 show there in 92 (i think)

  43. sunny615 March 11th, 2008 at 11:36 am

    Actually, I noted, that if AJax or Tabata do compete for a starting role next year, I believe AJax will compete for the CF role vice the RF role. IF Ajax is the OF of choice, the Yankees would more than likely move Melky to right. IF Tabata makes the team, he’ll be a RF vs CF and they’d probably leave Melky in Center. IF (and big if here) both are ready, Ajax takes CF, Tabata/Melky RF and Melky/Damon left or Damon DH’s. But that scenario is more likely for 2010 than 2009.

  44. Y's Guy March 11th, 2008 at 11:37 am

    ill be at the trenton/scranton game too. cant wait!

  45. UtilityMan March 11th, 2008 at 11:40 am

    Y’s Guy

    Trenton could have an outfield to start the season of

    Tabata AJax C.Curtis

    and Scranton of

    J.Christian Gardner Lane

  46. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 March 11th, 2008 at 11:52 am

    You think maybe we’re stacked at the outfield?

  47. jennifer- Hip Hip Jorge March 11th, 2008 at 11:56 am

    I want to go tot he scranton trenton game, but work gets in the way. :lol:

    I hope they air it on tv. That will be fun to see.

  48. JGNYC March 11th, 2008 at 11:59 am

    Does anyone think Lane would accept a AAA assignment from the Yankees, or move on to try to pick up with a Major League club?

  49. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 March 11th, 2008 at 12:00 pm

    It would be awesome to watch.

  50. Patrick March 11th, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    CB,

    I see where you are coming from but our opinions differ in this case. Its tough to project what will happen until we see how Tabata plays this season. I think he will really break out in AA now that he is over his hand/wrist problems. If that happens I can see him competing for a starting role in spring training or perhaps spending a few months in AAA at the beginning of 2009 with a midseason callup. It could also play out like you think, only time will tell.

  51. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 March 11th, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    DAVID CONE ON!

  53. mel March 11th, 2008 at 12:04 pm

    While he’s not eye candy, I like Flaherty’s voice and analysis. Clear, crisp, and assertive.

  54. AS2008 March 11th, 2008 at 12:04 pm

    Ok so of the non-roster invitees who’s left? Who is still fighting for a position? I saw the game the other day and Brett Gardner is super quick, and Greg Porter seems to crush anything that comes his way. Are they going to stay up or will they reassign them as well?

  55. Ranting Guy (no whining) March 11th, 2008 at 12:04 pm

    I don’t know much about Jay Bruce & Justin Upton yet, but the way their talent/development/time lines are put in perspective, they’re on par with Andruw Jones. With the exception of last year, he turned out pretty good.

    I wonder how Tabata/AJax compare to a more familiar star at the same age … Bernie Williams. I really don’t know. If they were to become anything slightly resembling Bernie at his best, the Yanks would have two OFs they could be real happy with. A Griffey Jr clone or a Jones clone (in their primes) would be even better, but those guys are so few and far between.

    Upton may well be one of the best talents of this generation. But if he’s really that good and our prospects just aren’t as good as he is, it’s not a bad thing. Nobody else’s prospects are either.

  56. Fernando Alejandro (Respect Jeter's Gangster) March 11th, 2008 at 12:04 pm

    I’m glad we’re stacked with outfielders down under. We have 3 outfielders who will be free agents within the next 2 years. We may sign some of them back, but lets face it, they’re backing into the end of their careers.

  57. jennifer- Hip Hip Jorge March 11th, 2008 at 12:05 pm

    Who cares about the Nets? I want to see that game!! I Hope they tape it and play it back later.

    Rebecca where is Cone on?

  61. CB March 11th, 2008 at 12:09 pm

    “Does anyone think Lane would accept a AAA assignment from the Yankees, or move on to try to pick up with a Major League club?”

    I’d be surprised to see Lane take a minor league assignment with the yankees, but it would be a terrific depth move for the club if he would.

    If he continues to hit well in ST then I think he could catch on somewhere.

    He’d be a definite upgrade over what the mets have right now , for instance.

    (an aside – the mets got santana but really didn’t bother making any of the smaller moves to add depth to a very old team – they could have signed lane or ensberg but didn’t bother…)

    Given that the yankees already basically have 4 major league outfielders on the 25 man and then shelley on top of that. I’d have to think Lane would go elsewhere even if it were to sign a minor league deal. His chances of getting called up would be much greater with another team that has less depth.

  62. Rebecca--Optimist Prime--Mission 2708 March 11th, 2008 at 12:10 pm

    Nice segment on the coaching staff!

  65. jennifer- Hip Hip Jorge March 11th, 2008 at 12:11 pm

    Maybe Flash and Cone can take out Kay. :lol:

    Where is Pete for the play-by-play?

  66. UtilityMan March 11th, 2008 at 12:11 pm

    No room for Porter,Gardner,Ensberg,Lane,Woodward,Green.

    Outfield is Damon,Cabrera,Abreu,Duncan,Matsui
    Infield is A-Rod,Jeter,Cano,Giambi,Betemit and ___________
    Catchers Posada,Molina
    12 Pitchers
    That Totals 25

    Porter and Gardner will be in Scranton ready for a DL call up.

  67. jennifer- Hip Hip Jorge March 11th, 2008 at 12:13 pm

    I thought Lane signed a minor league deal. go check cotts site. He is listed there along with MOrgan.

  68. UtilityMan March 11th, 2008 at 12:13 pm

    That __________ was for Ensberg or Woodward.

  69. UtilityMan March 11th, 2008 at 12:14 pm

    He did sign a minor league contract.

  70. saucY March 11th, 2008 at 12:16 pm

    good news!

  71. Stephen March 11th, 2008 at 12:19 pm

    I think the __________ is for Duncan.

  72. Blargh March 11th, 2008 at 12:20 pm

    Jennifer: They’re listed in the Minor Leagues section of the contracts xP

  73. whozat March 11th, 2008 at 12:23 pm

    “You think maybe we’re stacked at the outfield?”

    Eh…If all turns out for the best, yes. But two of these guys are still fairly far away, and EVERYTHING has to fall right for Gardner to be an MLB starter. If Jackson and Gardner were flip-flopped in terms of where they are developmentally, I’d feel REALLY good. It’d mean that we’d have one guy who’s reasonably a year away from hitting the majors and can be expected to produce at a solidly above average level, and another guy who’s two years or so away from probably being a complementary role-player type — as opposed to the opposite, which is what we’ve got right now.

  74. OldYanksFan March 11th, 2008 at 12:23 pm

    “You are way off base on this one I think. In my opinion Tabata will compete for the starting RF job in spring training 2009.”

    Both JD and Mats are signed through 2009. They might not be great, but AJax and Tabata would have to be better in order to rate a call up. I think it’s very unlikely. Plus, if Bobby has a good year, he may well be signed up for another year or 2. 2010? Yes. 2009? Doubtful, or maybe when rosters expand at the end of the season.

    Neither Tabata nor Jackson will be in the Yankee OF, or competing for OF spots in 2009.

    The move from AA to the majors is enormous. Even moreso for kids as young as both players.

    If they both have great years in AA, they are still starting next season in AAA.

    The Yankees don’t rush prospects. Kennedy and Chamberlain are exceptions, not the rule.

    If Bobby Abreu has a typical Bobby Abreu season, the Yankees will re-sign him.

    They are not turning over 2 of their 3 OF positions to kids next year.

    what about Billy Crystal signing with the Yankees?

    On top of that, Tabata has far from the prototypical power corner OF body, if his current data is correct. 5’11″, 160 lbs. doesn’t scream power. Maybe we’ve got a Toy Cannon of our own on the way. But he hasn’t shown it yet. He’s moving well ahead of his age, but not because of his power.

    I agree that a spot could open in ’09, as Matsui could move to DH and Abreu will be a FA. But I also don’t see the Yanks handing both these guys jobs to start ’09 in a brand new Stadium. They should both make appearances if they progress without hiccups – but that’s why they call them prospects. We’re starting to sound a little like Rays fans here – all our prospects are sure things, everything is beautiful.

    Don’t forget Eric Duncan – who isn’t finished but hasn’t straight lined to the bigs either. How nice would it be to have a young, lefty hitting 1B power prospect right now, rather than a guy in his 3rd crack at AAA. His performance was never at Tabata’s level, but Jackson was a bit disappointing until this year. Duncan was (or nearly was) MVP of the AFL 2 years ago – Jackson was very good in HWB this year, but that’s a lower level. Pushing prospects beyond their performance is a lesson Duncan’s taught the org well. I hope they soar, but they won’t be rushed.

    Tabata is only 19 years old. The power will come. No one in the system is concerned about this “lack of power.” It’s the last thing to rear its head in many young hitters. This boy is a stud now, and already has displayed ability to drive the ball, so the power is napping for now.

    Bridal Bandeau VeilThis made to order bridal bandeau veil by Myra Kim is a stunning addition to your romantic Big Day look. Says the designer, “I created this style because I wanted to design a veil that was fresh and different but also very wearable. The bouquet of silk flowers adds just enough drama while remaining sweet and feminine.” We have to agree!

    Pas tous les parents peuvent se permettre d’acheter leur fille une nouvelle voiture pour leur 16e anniversaire, mais cela ne signifie pas que vous ne pouvez pas obtenir un grand cadeau pour elle! Il existe de nombreuses idées de cadeaux de la mère qui sont moins coûteux, comme un téléphone portable, netbook, vêtements, appareil photo numérique, ou même des bijoux. Ma suggestion pour le cadeau parfait de la mère est un iPhone. L’iPhone 3G S est l’un des meilleurs téléphones cellulaires sur le marché pour les adolescents et les adultes, et ferait le parfait cadeau du bonbon 16. Ce téléphone est disponible en plusieurs modèles allant du modèle 8 Go moins cher à 97 $ à la modèle de Go 32 à $ 297. L’iPhone est livré en deux couleurs, noir, et blanc. Si le forfait mensuel semble trop pour le consommateur soucieux de leur budget, alors un iTouch (mêmes caractéristiques que l’iPhone sans la possibilité d’appel) peut être la meilleure présents. L’iPhone et l’iTouch peuvent être trouvés à.
