Rain Delay

Thunder Road

Minor League Icon Chance Adams On Monday, went 5.2 shutout innings giving up just three hits, he also encountered his nemesis the base on balls.. Adams the former reliever turned starter had  three walks while striking out four before exiting at the 95-pitch mark in a 6-1 Trenton Thunder win

While it’s great  to  see Adams blowing through Double A, his walk rate  (10 BB’s in 22 innings) continues to blemish a possible call up to  the varsity.. The fact he’s not on the 40 man  roster is also iodine in your coffee, although it didn’t stop Jordan Montgomery

Not sure why Adams is still at AA, he’s only 22 yr’s old and not a pedigree prospect drafted in the 5th  round, but he looks like one of the best pure pitchers in the system..

adams split

We’ll use  top prospect dog  Luis Severino  as the compare, despite Luis starting his NYY career at  18 yr’s old

Luis Severino pitched 401 innings in 5 minor league seasons, 138.2 innings in AAA, 68 innings at AA

So far Adams has pitched 184 innings at A and AA, he’s in his 2nd season at AA with 113.2 innings under his belt for Trenton.

Best case scenario Adams moves up  the AAA soon..

Riding Off the Rails

SWB lost 6-2,

Ben Heller High Water had a rough day  at the office

 RHP Ben Heller: 1 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 3 WP, 1/0 GB/FB — 21 of 32 pitches were strikes (66%), though one of the walks was intentional … 

That’s no good… but

Smokin Clint Frazier seems to be on a streak  and it continued.

LF Clint Frazier: 2-5, 1 2B — five of his last eight hits have gone for extra bases (three doubles, two homers)

Rain Down Tears

The Yanks were rained out, which sucked for us, which kind of worked for both teams… For Boston,  Pedroia gets another day to heal his banged up knee, last  thing the Bombers need is Pedroia in the line-up..

And for the Yanks, they’re one day  closer to getting Gregorius and Sanchez in the line-up without losing a  game off the schedule … Not that Torreyes and Romine haven’t been great, but now instead of going to Pete Kozma and Kyle Hagashioka on the bench, Formula Joe can  call on super sub Ronald Torreyes and Romine

SS Didi Gregorius: 2-3, 1 R, 1 HR, 1 RBI — that’s his first home run during this rehab assignment … he played seven innings in the field again, so I guess the Yankees aren’t ready to send him out there a full nine yet … perhaps that means he won’t be returning for the start of the homestand Friday 

The game will be part of a day-night doubleheader on July 16th in Boston.. Good luck  with that mess..

The O’s lost so the Bombers moved back to  1.5 behind Baltimore…Let’s hope they get this one in tonight, rain is supposed to  continue most of the day..

God said to Abraham, “Kill me a…….

WFAN had Pete Abraham on the Met Mutts Show, and it was a really good spot.. Thankfully, the nerd Evan Red Head knows baseball and the dumbest bastard on the planet Joe Beningo  was reduced to playing rhythm guitar behind Jesus…

Abraham gave us a pretty good inside track on the Pedroia knee and inside Red Sox stuff..

Jeter  and Jeb

Good luck  to Jeter and Jeb, hopefully they get  approved to buy  the Marlins after they find some Bank.. Hopefully he won’t have to  fire Don Mattingly, and will Ichiro be the first  50 plus yr old player since Satchel Paige?

Joel Sherman  
Would it be awkward on May 14 if #Yankees are retiring the number of #Marlins owner Derek Jeter?

The Dons B&M

The DonB has a new start up group, I’m sure you can get in on the ground floor if you’re an avid stock investor.. The pragmatic DonB wants you to add value to your portfolio.. He wanted me to post his banner, so I am, all  questions pertaining his company should be directed to him

All I know it’s some sort of transport business



As for Don moscone, he was thinking about an Ad business..

Cluttering the back stops and out field walls with  Ad’s has always bugged the DonM, so his company would provide  a bevy of beauties donning content ladened apparel, a remedy that no  doubt would be  much easier on the eyes..

  1. Francesa had Smoltz on yesterday, probably a paid spot by MLB…. Francesa might be in traction today he probably hurt his back dry humping Smoltz for 25 minutes but Smoltz endured..,

    Smoltz has some great ideas on why pitchers are getting hurt so much

    He’s just a great listen, too bad somebody didn’t duct tape Francesa’s mouth shut…

  4. Hey Sal, I got a first hand look last night of the Don B’s banner. This could have multiple uses. Beach blankets, towels, floor rugs, carpeting, alternate tarp cover for rain delays, etc.

    You’re stealin my thunder. We’re not quite ready to show off the finished product(s).
    After test marketing the ball girl in Philly, we’ve decided to hire her. Her attributes were so apparent, I’ve decided to make her my “personal” assistant. She, will be the face (ass) of the company.
    With more teams facing empty seats near the field, this should remedy that.
    Who wouldn’t want to sit near these bevy of beauties waiting for a chance to be given a foul ball “personalized”???
    If applying, please send many pics & resume. If you make it to the next level, I will be conducting all personal interviews…
