Call him up, hes ready and we can use his bat.

Well probably because of Yankee Stadium dimensions but his arm isn't good enough at RF. I would be surprised if they try him there.


I dont mind seeing him down there for a bit longer. I mean if we were playing Miranda at DH then I would be all for it. By the way scouts rate his power just a shade under 80 ... that's on a 20-80 scale.

Over slot draft pick signings are starting to trickle in now, Yanks came to terms with St. John's closer Dan Burawa and New Jersey native and masher at Tulane Rob Segedin.

75 on that scale. His hit tool is a 70 IIRC.

Well, you'll have to wait until mid September or the beginning of next season for that. The Yankees have no reason to bring him up yet. The offense is just fine, and besides there is no room for him on the 40 man roster spot. Obviously, the Yankees could DFA someone like Wilkin De La Rosa because he is probably the first to go anyway, but they need his potential spot for the Rule V Draft guys this year.

True. It's just Jorgie's slumping and Cervelli can only hit singles

Not much Mets talk. For good reason, they're awful. I'm officially done caring about them this season.

They need to find a way to dump Castillo, Perez and even Beltran.

So glad that the Acosta-lypse showed up again.

I don't get why Minaya or Wilpon don't understand the concept of a sunk cost. Perez, and Castillo actually have negative values for the team. The manager doesn't want to play them, and they are taking up valuable roster spots. Especially Perez. The money is guaranteed, and they are making the team worse. Why don't they just release them. I don't understand it.

They just want better draft picks so they can waste them on bums like Harvey again (who I am 100% hoping they don't sign).
