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: Yankees’ Heathcott finishing with a flourish in AFL

Selected by New York 29th overall in the 2009 Draft out of Texas High School, Heathcott has a checkered past that includes family issues and personal problems. Injuries and surgeries have added to the time Heathcott has spent away from the field, but he has been as locked in as any hitter over the last week.

The Yankees’ No. 5 prospect and third-ranked outfielder is currently riding an eight-game hitting streak. Over that time, he’s batting 19-for-32 (.594) with 10 extra-base hits and 11 RBIs. He has also stolen three bases over that spell, and he has as many walks (three) as strikeouts.

Heathcott capped a solid 2012 season with a great stint in the Arizona Fall League.  His 388/.494/.612 line gave him an OPS that .was second in the league.  He’ll be 22 in 2013, and may start the year in AA, although he only has 248 PA in advanced Class A thanks to injuries.  I’m concerned about his ability to remain healthy, but I am optimistic about his play and while I think it’s a long shot, he may be a possibility for a starting OF spot in MLB at some point in 2014.  From what I’ve read he’s got better tools than Mason Williams, but I think his health makes him a bigger question mark.

If the Yankees are going to achieve their goal of being competitive with a restricted payroll, players like Heathcott are going to be critical.  Let’s hope he’s part of the solution.
