Four picks later, the Yankees took a high school outfielder from Texas, Slade Heathcott. The rest is history.
    I know

    All high school picks are crap shoots


    But you have to take them to keep the minor league rosters balanced and not havjing too many 22 yr olds sprinkled around and then drying up with nowhere to play.

    But Bundy was available and he always had good stuff. Now we see seeing why Baltimore drafted him #1.

    More to the Trout draft story. Nolan Arenado wasn't just available when the Yankees picked at No. 29 in 2009. He wasn't taken until the 59th overall pick. Practically every big-league team is kicking themselves with how spectacular Arenado turned out.

    You are right about Bundy, not disagreeing only offering perspective.

    I still have reservations about Colorado players.


    And with regards to Bundy?

    Cashman usually takes fliers on these type of pitchers as he knows they have good stuff but might need a change of scenery or a good organization to fully tap into that potential.

    The Angels traded filler for Bundy

    Yanks had plenty of filler in the minors as well.

    He leaves Baltimore and is now the new Gerit Cole.

    Dude is dominating in every game! I mean complete domination of every opposing team so far!

    Way to go Cashbox!

    We could have had any Bundy in the rotation instead of Happ!

    If we had every pitcher some of you think we should have, we'd have 75 pitchers on the roster. You can't just have every player.

    Asked to elaborate on “lower body tightness,” Boone mentioned hips, hamstrings and calves.

    I think they are hiding an injury. Hell, Boone is BSing and says he needs some rest, load management BS. Total bullspit!

    Hey Boone, the Yankees didn’t play Monday and do not play on Thur. Try again pal.....
    Told you so.

    And Boone was telling us he pulled him early because he wanted to give him extra rest.

    Judge is another soft player.

    Like I said I loved the accession of youth back in late 16. Sanchez, Bird, Judge and Sevy all emerged and quickly rose in the new Yankee youth movement.Frazier, Torres soon followed.

    The problem with the kids is they all get nagging injuries.

    The Core 4+ Bernie had injuries but never like these. The full potential of this new Yankee generation will seem to always fall short because of these nagging injuries.

    I don't like him, but he can hit. Have to give him credit for that. I hope he takes advantage of the opportunity and mashes.

    Also, OT, but as a mod can you please force mush to post a pic of himself. I just need to know what he looks like.
    Maybe threaten a permaban if he refuses.

    I don't believe I have that authority. But for you I will ask.
