    “I haven’t seen Montgomery pitch yet. But people here seem to bring up the point that his FB isn’t good enough to get ML hitters off of his slider”

    I’m not saying that…..all I’m saying is that I wonder how everything with him will play against better competition

    ——————-

    How does Montgomery’s FB control look? I think if he becomes the type of guy that can spot that thing wherever he wants, he’ll be dangerous with that slider.

    Honestly, it’s a shame that YES is broadcasting the home game – I would be much more interested in seeing how the road team plays.

    “How does Montgomery’s FB control look? I think if he becomes the type of guy that can spot that thing wherever he wants, he’ll be dangerous with that slider.”

    Control ok but command kinda spotty….but I haven’t seem him in like mid season form….just in the AFL and yesterday

  4. blake February 28th, 2013 at 9:12 am

    Yea if much rather watch the road game

    The things that have jumped out at me the most so far this spring are Heathcotts overall ability and how he just already looks like he belongs with big leaguers…..and Ramierez…..who’s stuff and arm action are really exciting.

    I wish Adams could play because I wanted to see him more…..I was impressed with his approach and swing in the AFL ….reminds me of Micheal Young a bit just in his set up and swing etc….doesn’t mean he will be that but I liked what insaw

    The road game is also on MLB.TV this afternoon. That’s what I’ll watch.

  7. blake February 28th, 2013 at 9:20 am

    I wanna see Marshall

  8. Tackelberry February 28th, 2013 at 9:21 am

    I’ve always liked Marshall. He was drafted in the 6th round the year the Yanks took Gerrit Cole first. Was playfully labeled as the ‘consolation prize’ because they failed to sign Cole. Before TJ surgery he hit 96 regulary on the gun. Now he is 93-94 with a very good sinker and one of the best changeups in the organization. I would think he would be the first guy called up this year if they need another starter besides Phelps.

    Thanks. With that type of filthy slider the most he needs to be able to do is spot his FB to be a top notch reliever, IMO. I don’t think he needs crazy velocity.. just be able to put it where you want it.

    Easier said than done, of course.

    Has there been any update on when Adams might see action?

  11. Yankee Trader February 28th, 2013 at 9:24 am

    Good morning
    The away game is against the Astros.
    Time to get a win and for Almonte to show the Yankees why he belongs rightfield to start the season in Yankee Stadium.

  12. Shame Spencer February 28th, 2013 at 9:24 am

    I’ve asked before but have an awful memory… does Marshall seem to be the 7th starter or is that Warren?

    It looks as if both games are on mlbtv. It will be a busy afternoon looking in on two games while at mediation. Pesky work. I will overcome.

  15. ron February 28th, 2013 at 9:31 am

    It seemed a bit odd when the Yankees added left-hander Francisco Rondon to the 40-man roster early in the offseason, keeping him away from the Rule 5 Draft. The 24-year-old pitched to a 3.93 ERA with 80 strikeouts and 42 walks in 71 innings across three levels last year, mostly with Double-A Trenton. Solid, but he wasn’t talked about a top (or even good) prospect and didn’t seem 40-man worthy.

    Rondon threw two scoreless innings in this afternoon’s game, allowing a walk and a single while striking out two. As you can see, the kid has a pretty awesome slider. Downright CC Sabathia-esque, if I may. After seeing that, it’s easy to understand why they added him to the 40-man now, that breaking ball gives him at least lefty specialist potential. Some more clips of the slider after the jump. Make sure you click to embiggen.

    video of his slider.

    Good to see JR “BOOM BOOM” Murphy in the lineup.

  17. blake February 28th, 2013 at 9:32 am

    ” I would think he would be the first guy called up this year if they need another starter besides Phelps.”

    Yea him or Warren…. Probably whichever they think is pitching better and most ready….Iove Warren cause he’s a Tarheel but think he’s a reliever at the big league level most likely…..haven’t seen Marshall but reports are that he’s may can be more

  18. Shame Spencer February 28th, 2013 at 9:34 am

    I’m really excited about JR. First of all, I have no idea what JR stands for and I like the mystery. Secondly, my initials are J.R. Thirdly, I’ve always wanted to refer to someone as Murph.

    So… he should be fast-tracked based on all of the above.

  19. Tackelberry February 28th, 2013 at 9:34 am

    Off topic, byt did anyone catch Steph Curry’s performance last night at the Garden? WOW! Knicks sure got a good dose of what they missed out on.

    Also, some video clips of Tommy Kahnle throwing some serious heat.

    Shame-
    I like J R also, that being 22yo Jose Ramirez.

    Just watching the playback of Bundy yesterday cause I missed it…. He’s pretty much awesome ….has it all

    Jorge sounds like manager man in that interview he did yesterday

  27. blake February 28th, 2013 at 9:47 am

    “Didn’t Slade get his hit off Bundy?”

    Yup…ripped a first pitch fastbal…..Zoilo also got on top of a 95 mph heater up in the zone on a 3-2 count and flew it to deep CF which was an out but impressive

    Joel Sherman in today’s NY Post-Yankees tired Joba’s act:

    “What was more interesting was the way in which Joe Girardi and Brian Cashman dismissed it, treating Chamberlain more like a child and nuisance than anything else. Cashman went as far as to chide Chamberlain, saying the team had an opening in center field, and perhaps Chamberlain could be a candidate there, as well.”

    —————-

    Until yesterday I had never seen him at all, but based on the report from MLB.com I think that during the season he sits a little higher with his velocity.

    Yeah, at this point I think Cashman half wishes Soriano didn’t opt out. If he hadn’t I doubt Chamberlain would be part of this team right now.

    Cash and Girardi were wrong to mock Joba in public, but I get where they’re both tired of him.

  33. blake February 28th, 2013 at 9:56 am

    Jorge seemed unhappy with how they were playing yesterday…..didnt sound at all like an old timer there to just hang out

  34. Yankee Trader February 28th, 2013 at 9:58 am

    Which Baby Bombers have impresses enough, that if they continue to shine in ST, they be given a chance to start the season in OF(RF/LF), vie for spot in BP as long man if Hughes is not ready and is replaced by Phelps, and if the Yankees have another BP spot if Eppley, perhaps, is cut loose?

  38. ac1 February 28th, 2013 at 10:07 am

    I would actually LOVE a manager like Posada. He will NEVER tolerate the crap we have seen from the Yankees lately. When they suck, he will let them know it. I used to think Girardi had that fire too, but it seems like that was false.

  39. roselora February 28th, 2013 at 10:11 am

    I wanted to thank you and congratulate you for this blog accompanying me for quite some time. I like the atmosphere that reigns in the colors you have chosen pictures, messages daily … it’s part of my bubble dreams and escapes. good luck for you

    Tommy Kahnle from Shaker High School, Albany NY suburb.

  41. austinmac February 28th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    I think Jorge might recognize the value of a catcher that can hit were he the manager. I like him as well. A future managerial job is not out of the question, but he may need to coach some first to get an opportunity.

  42. randy l. February 28th, 2013 at 10:25 am

    “Jorge seemed unhappy with how they were playing yesterday…..didnt sound at all like an old timer there to just hang out”

    posada definitely had his game face on. he doesn’t smile much, but i like that in a catcher. i din’t think he was down on sanchez at all. i think he was more just telling sanchez that with his talent he still needs to take it to another level with conditioning. sanchez is probably naturally good without going the extra mile. posada had a work ethic off the charts and he’s just passing that on to sanchez.
    hopefully sanchez takes it seriously.

    posada was vastly underrated by many on this blog when he got to his last five years. posada was an amazing athlete to hit at such a high level while catching as much as he did that late in his career.
    it would really help the yankees as a team to keep him as close as possible to the team.

    of course, in the present machiavellian yankee world that values yes men, i don’t think the present yankee hierarchy could handle posada around full time.

  43. blake February 28th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    Posada should be a HOFer and I hope he gets in….without Jorge they don’t have 27 titles right now

    ————-

    I don’t know if that’s the kind of manager you can have with a veteran laden team. A young group, learning how to play at this level…absolutely. But veterans like Youk, Jeter, Tex, even Cano…they know how to play the game the right way and wouldn’t want or need someone getting up in their face.

    Maybe down the road it would be something to look at, but not the way this team is configured right now.

    But I do agree that I think Posada would some day be a very good manager – same with Chris Stewart.

  45. Chip February 28th, 2013 at 10:30 am

    Girardi on the other hand just bothers me. It’s not the binder, not the constant stats – it’s truly just the personality. The way his soft spoken manner seems to be forced and yes, the constant nicknames…it just rubs me completely the wrong way. As does the fact that I don’t think he’s had a single original thought as manager as to the complexion of this team…save one. I think clearly Girardi has influenced the organization’s view on catching.

  46. Cashmoney February 28th, 2013 at 10:31 am

    Don’t know if u guys read this or not, pretty harrowing story, my heart goes out …

    “But I do agree that I think Posada would some day be a very good manager – same with Chris Stewart.”

    stewart should be a kansas city royals manager and jorge should be the new york yankees manager.

    big difference.

    i don’t think stewart would know how to manage the yankees where jorge gets it totally.
