    Trade Matsui...bring up Jesus Montero as a DH.
    I can't STAND Matsui...Mets could use another slugger with their depleted offense I'm sure.
    PLEASE TRADE MATSUI.

    Sabathia has been ass.
    DB55 has been a major disappointment in the minors, but with his lack of control; its no suprise.

    Matsui hasn't been that bad. He owned yesterday. Anyway Matsui isn't tradeable. He is only a DH now. Jesus Montero is no where near ready. He has only been at AA for a little bit. We should be happy if he gets a call up September 2010. But he will be great. I compare him to Victor Martinez.

    CC has been great...dude 1 bad start...don't hate.
    Dellin is an extreamly raw prospect. A lot of upside, but that is about it.

    Betances is injury-prone and though we've talked for years about how he'll eventually develop some control and not be as wild, it's yet to happen. Better to trade him now and get what we can (given that the Yankees' minor league system is stacked with amazing pitching talent such as Zach McAllister, DJ Mitchell, Manuel Banuelos, Hector Noesi, just to name a few) than to gamble on him failing and/or his career ending due to excessive shoulder surgeries and/or elbow surgeries.

    Matsui might be tradeable for any AL team that wants some Japanese market revenue not to mention some pop in the bat. He's still a decent player, but his role on the team has been superseded by Brett Gardner's amazing numbers as of the last month or so as well as Melky Cabrera's hot streak (which we'll see whether it lasts).

    Montero should spend more time in the minors and maybe get better at defense. He's hitting .579 in his last 5 games with four home runs, but if he wants to be a catcher at the major league level we need to let him work behind the plate some more and get him some more experience and/or coaching that way.

    Sabathia has been good...he's had a few bad starts but overall he's done great for us...even aces have their bad starts...

    I am very excited about Montero. The dude can hit. I really hope they send him to triple A ASAP and give him a call for next seasons Spring Training. His swing is sweet and he can hit for power.

    On a negative note i am starting to lose faith in both A-jack and Brackman. A-jack has speed and that is it. Nothing what we were hopping he would turn into. Brackman has been abysmal. His command is gone fishing and his velocity has dropped considerable. I really hoepe it is just too early and he gets back to his pre Tommy John form.

    I think they're keeping Montero in AA so he and Francisco Cervelli can both catch on a regular basis. Montero's bat is probably major league ready now but he needs to work on his defense if he's going to replace Jorge Posada down the line.

    So far this year Austin Jackson in AAA has a batting average of .321 with four homers, a .386 OBP, and a .452 SLG in 305 At-bats.

    He's not hitting for as much power as we'd hoped but he steals bases, has a good arm (he played Right Field today and threw out a runner), decent range in the outfield, and he hits well for average. The only knock on him right now is that he strikes out way too much (in 305 AB he has 78 Ks and that's only in AAA) but we'll see if he cuts down on that in the second half of the season.

    Brackman...is probably injured, or something. In any case Brackman isn't really a big deal. There are prospects that we should be taking more note of.

    For example:

    AAA:
    Ivan Nova. He's 22 years old, and this season has had 12 starts in AA and 2 in AAA. So far he's posting a combined 2.27 ERA with 73 hits in 83.1 innings, with 54 Ks and 35 BB.

    AA:
    We've got a 1B named Jorge Vazquez who's posting a .948 OPS right now. Since we have Teixeira odds are he's not going to be of any use to us, but he could be valuable trade bait.

    Zach McAllister: 5-4 record, 1.87 ERA. 86.2 IP, 69 H. 72 K, 26 BB. Also 22 years old.

    A+ (Tampa):

    Austin Romine (C): Better defense than Jesus Montero. .799 OPS with 11 HR...and even 7 SB. Needs to learn how to take a damned walk and he'll be a great player.

    DJ Mitchell: 22 years old. Combined 3.05 ERA in A and A+. 92 K, 28 BB. 94.1 IP, 79 H. He's adjusting to Tampa, but other than that has been pitching great.

    Hector Noesi: In 12 starts and 6 relief appearances combined for A+ and A, 2.57 ERA in 80.2 IP, 83 K, 12 BB (!!!), 68 H.

    A-ball:

    David Phelps: 17 GS, 100.2 IP, 106 H (kinda high, yeah), 78 K, 22 BB, 2.77 ERA. (also 22 years old)

    And the kid I'm most ecstatic about...

    Manuel Banuelos: 15 GS, 77.2 IP, 2.20 ERA, 61 H, 68 K, 17 BB. Get this:

    Banuelos's Date of Birth? 03/13/1991. That's right. We have a kid who's 18 years old who's wiping the floor with the rest of Single-A. And he's left handed.

    Default Very Few Teams can stop us

    Just think Yankee fans....in the playoffs we have one of the best rotations in baseball with CC, Burnett, Pettite and an inconsistent Joba who can be on or off..........and one of the best bullpens in the majors ranking 1st in many stats since the all star break...

    On top of great pitching...our players couldnt be hot at a better time.......Derek Jeter has hit .500 in the past 13 games and on his way to a possible MVP along with Texiera who might win MVP....a healthy A Rod who can carry this team if he heats up....along with Matsui, Posada, Cano, and Damon who have been having good years.

    I dont know many teams that can beat the Yankees in the playoffs....only teams are Boston, the Angels, and the Dodgers(Manny is a Yankee killer).

    Yankees are red hot at the best time of the year while Boston has been struggling lately, fortunately, and battling a good Texas Rangers team and fighting for a wild card spot.

    Best case scenerio.....Rangers win the wild card and knock out Boston.

    AJ pitched well too. Hopefully he is past his struggling days. A 1,2,3 punch with CC, AJ and Pettitte sounds good to me. Lets hope them bats keep it going as well. In the play offs there is always good pitching so we need to stay focused.

    Joba is worrying me. He has lost it. He can't push more than 91-93 on the radar gun and his pitches are very hittable.

    This whole Joba Rules thing is weird.....

    IT worries me he's going up against Lester and the sox tomorrow, i dont think he'll pitch well.

    i honestly think he should be more of a closer than a starter. When mariano retires, joba should be the man. When he was a reliever, he beasted. Now look what happened.

    Damn, i also wonder what would be happening if Moose was still playing..
