A bit late on this, but Baseball America has released the New York Yankees Top 10 Prospects for 2011. And here it is:

1. Jesus Montero
2. Gary Sanchez
3. Dellin Betances
4. Manny Banuelos
5. Andrew Brackman
6. Austin Romine
7. Hector Noesi
8. Eduardo Nunez
9. Slade Heathcott
10. Brandon Laird

No real surprises on the list. Montero ranking #1 makes sense, considering he could very well be holding the starting catcher position out of Spring Training at the start of next season. As you can tell by the list, some prospects have made considerable improvements. Sanchez (#7 in ’10) and Brackman (#10 in ’10) have moved up the ranks. The thing that has to catch your eye is Dellin Betances ranking #3 on this list. It just shows how good of a year he’s had, considering he was left off the top 10 list all together in 2010.

With Zach McAllister and Arodys Vizcaino leaving the team, it opened up some new spots for other propsects. New additions to this year’s list include: Noesi, Nunez and Laird.   (more…)

Recap Courtesy of the Yankees Official Website:

Future Stars at the plate: Slade Heathcott, the Yankees’ first-round Draft pick last year, led off the game with a single but was stranded on third. Jesus Montero also singled in the first inning, but David Adams popped up with runners on the corners and no outs. The Future Stars finally broke through when Bradley Suttle and Eduardo Nunez strung together back-to-back RBI singles in the fourth.

Yankees at the plate: After Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada and Mark Teixeira loaded the bases with no outs in the first, Robinson Cano hit a two-run double to left. Nick Swisher followed with a booming sacrifice fly to center, one of his two sac flies in the game. Teixeira finished 1-for-1 with a walk, adding an RBI single in the third. Marcus Thames tacked on a solo homer in the fifth.

Future Stars on the mound: Jonathan Albaladejo allowed three runs (two earned) in two-thirds of an inning. Ivan Nova breezed through the second inning, but served up two runs on four hits in the third, in addition to single runs in the fourth and fifth innings.

Yankees on the mound: In his final spring tune-up, Javier Vazquez allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits in 4 1/3 innings. Vazquez struck out two and walked one. Reliever Mark Melancon, who could make an appearance in the Bronx this season, allowed two runs in relief of Vazquez. Switch-pitcher Pat Venditte, facing four batters right-handed and one batter lefty, allowed one run in the eighth.

Final Score: NY Yankees 9, Yankees Futures 6 (more…)

Stop, think back 5 years, where were you, what were you doing? I’m pretty sure if you’re over the age of 25, you’ll probably remember. Now think about your favorite baseball team, can you tell me how many people that will be in the starting lineup this year that was in 2005? I bet you can’t! It just a testament on how much this is a business and we root for a uniform more than a group of people. Yes, we have personal favorites (Paul O’Neill, Tino Martinez, etc al), but when it comes down to it, it’s the uniform that matters. Below, I have listed the 2005 Opening Day batting order, our projected 2010 batting order and we take a stab at the 2015 batting order. Those bolded are holdovers from previous years.

2005 Opening Day Batting Order

  1. Derek Jeter, SS
  2. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
  3. Gary Sheffield, RF
  4. Ruben Sierra, DH
  5. Hideki Matsui, LF
  6. Jorge Posada, C
  7. Jason Giambi, 1B
  8. Bernie Williams, CF
  9. Tony Womack, 2B

2010 Opening Day Batting Order (likely)

  1. Derek Jeter, SS
  2. Nick Johnson, DH
  3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
  5. Curtis Granderson, CF
  6. Jorge Posada, C
  7. Nick Swisher, RF
  8. Robinson Cano, 2B
  9. Brett Gardner, LF

2015 Opening Day Batting Order (Projected)

  1. Carl Crawford, OF
  2. Curtis Granderson, OF
  3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
  5. Jesus Montero, DH
  6. Robinson Cano, 2B
  7. Slade Heathcott, OF
  8. Austin Romine, C
  9. ???, SS

Amazing how things change or will change…
