Current Projected

Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

MLB: IF David Adams (Yankees), LHP Robbie Erlin (Padres) Arizona Fall League Players of the Week

Scottsdale Scorpions infielder David Adams (Yankees) and Peoria Javelinas left-handed starting pitcher Robbie Erlin (Padres) are the Arizona Fall League’s week five player of the week and pitcher of the week, respectively.

Adams — The 6-1, 205-pound infielder hit three home runs while batting .571 for the week. He added 4 runs, 1 triple and 6 RBI. He led the league in home runs, extra-base hits (4) and total bases (17). His on-base and slugging percentages were .474 and 1.063, respectively.

Through the first five weeks of the Fall League season, the Margate, FL native was hitting .261 with 9 runs, 6 doubles, 1 triple, 3 home runs and 14 RBI and a .363 on-base percentage.

He also was the starting second baseman for the East Division in the November 3 Rising Stars Game.

Adams, 25, spent the 2012 season at Double-A Trenton where he hit .306 with eight homers and 48 RBI in 86 games. He is a .295 hitter over five minor-league seasons.

He was the Yankees’ third-round (106th overall) draft choice in 2008 out of the University of Virginia.

Adams lost a big chunk of development time over 2010-2011, his ages 23 and 24 seasons, due to a severe ankle injury.  He appears to be past that now and had a good year in Trenton and is doing pretty well in the AFL.  He’s mostly played 2B but saw some time at 3B this past season and he has a decent chance to make the Yankees out of spring training in a utility role.  CAIRO likes him a fair amount, projecting him at .256/.324/.390 which would be worth about 1.5 WAR over 600 PA.  If Adams has a good 2013 it may give the Yankees some ammunition when negotiating with Robinson Cano.  It’s one thing to lose a 5-6 win player without a viable fall-back, but a 1.5-2 win replacement makes it sting a bit less.

I’m not saying the Yankees shouldn’t try and re-sign Cano, because losing him would hurt a lot.  But I really don’t want to see him signed into his late 30s at “top of the market” dollars, and we know that’s what he’s looking for.
