The Future Is So Bright You Need Flip-Downs

Holy cow! The YES site has an exciting story about how great our prospects are doing in the Mexican Winter League. Luis Niebla has started a game--one--and his ERA is 2.35! Yowee. Reliever Giovanny Gallegos has appeared twice and not allowed a hit or a walk! Look out, D-Rob. And Jose Augusto Figueroa has been in three games and has a hit! A real, live hit!

Man. This is going to be an exciting off-season.

Gordon Blakeley, who actually signed Phil Hughes, Robbie Cano and a bunch of other notables, has left. He will doubtless be replaced by a crony who thinks bats are those rodenty things that fly into your hair and make those horrible high-pitched noises.

Trey Hillman has gone to the Astros to be their bench coach. No doubt one year back in the Yankee front office scared the bejesus out of him.

Mickey Kelleher is retiring now that we fired him, figuring to go out on the high note of being let go by the most incompetent management team in baseball. Way to go, Mick! If the Yankees fired him, he most definitely must have sucked for the past 16 years.

Thames, a river of batting wisdom.
In case you missed it, last week it was announced that we're looking at Dante Bichette, Marcus Thames and Chili Davis for the new batting coach. Because if anyone can get our .220 hitters batting .225, it's Marcus 'the Hammer' Thames.

And Doug Williams at YES says that our next shortstop should be...Asdrubal Cabrera. You know why? Because he's 'solid.' Not great, not exciting, not nothing but 'solid.' Whew. Bring me the smelling salts, Dr. Ahmad.

Holy Mother of Gahhd, like they say in Beantown. I can hardly wait for Spring Training. It's going to be one heck of a year.

Damn. For a minute there, I thought Dante Bichette JUNIOR would be our new hitting coach. That would be cool, because he could coach himself.
