Like everyone I love the Valazquez story and the kid has a nice glove with good range.

Can't fall in love with a 27 year old that couldn't hook on with a major league club by age 27. He gave them a nice spark but just as I firmly believe that aside from age players hit to the back of their baseball card on the plus side I believe players slide back to the back of their baseball card on the negative side

Gio was 27 when Yanks acquired him...career at that point .225/.274/.315/.589/ 8 HR


Since Yanks acquired him... .298/.334/.494/.838/ 38 HR




There's something magical about putting on the pinstripes.

I dunno about that, but I do believe in being in the right place at the right time.

I just can't fall in long term love with low level prospects because they have a great couple of weeks. As I said, they kid is a great story and he might have a good glove but it takes a long time for guys like this to convince me with the bat. I'm certainly not willing to keep Torres on the bench for him

    I am sure you watched a lot of Scott Brosius. He was another great 3rd baseman who did not play much until age 27.

I know...you've been consistent with that line of thought, and I've said earlier it'll take a lot more playing time for Velasquez to prove he belongs. Just saying there are proven exceptions to the rule.

True...but Brosius had established himself by the time Yanks acquired him.


I have a funny story re Brosius, but I'll keep it to myself.

     I'll wait to the offseason to see if I can pry it out of you!

    Luke Voit's career wasn't much to write home about until age 27. I doubt Velazquez will ever be in the same class as Voit or Torres, but he is a versatile guy who can hit from the left side, run and do a decent job as short.


    This team is loaded with right handed power bats but a little short on speed and leather.

Mike Tauchman, Kevin Mass, Shane Spencer. As I said, I was never one to fall in and out of love with players based on a few games

It just goes to prove that Boone, Cashman and Steinbrenner know MORE than any of us... they know the players, the prospects and the ability to pick up the right pieces at the right time. 


I wonder where all the "fire Cashman", "fire Boone" advocates are now...



It's a LONG season...and despite ALL the injuries, illnesses and missteps, the Yankees continue to keep their eyes on the prize...


Time for the fans to believe again !




I still think Boone should be fired, he's made many questionable moves this season that doesn't get erased just because they added reinforcements.



I have garden tools that know more about baseball than you do...
