Whenever people start exclaiming about, " their top prospect," I always start thinking that I haven't been doing my job.
The yankees just wouldn't stop talking about how advanced this kid is; how he is ready now for the big leagues, blah, blah, blah. How deep their minor league system is, etc.
Please try not to piss me off with arrogance, and over-confidence. The yankees are a bunch of trolley car workers, just like everyone else. Accidents happen all the time.
I have already put the Kaprielian kid, " out of sight and out of mind. " His TJ surgery was yesterday and, in 2 years, maybe three, you will see if he can still pitch. Although, he could be a free agent by then.
Today, we asked for, and received, some idle time for Gleyber Torres, the Yankees top SS candidate.
Here is how the Yankees in 2017 are faring with the classic formula; "Strength up the middle." Starting catcher - (on the DL ); Starting SS ( on the DL ); top pitching prospect ( gone ); top SS prospect ( on the DL ).
For now, Gleyber ( what kind of name is Gleyber???) Torres is on the 7 day DL with, " rotator cuff tendonitis." Soon, the 7 day DL will become the 15 day DL, and then the 30 day DL.
Dr. Andrews is already on a plane. In which case, if surgery occurs, there is no DL.. Just gone will be the designation.
I think we can safely forget about 2017 for this young man. He can catch up on his reading.
Maybe next year.
So here is my thought; Stop puffing yourselves up and talking about a great season, an unbeatable future.
It pisses me off. And you don't want that.
