Yes! I can never get enough Steve Phillips and Peter Gammons. ;-7 :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I for one can not stand Steve Phillips, especially since those fake press conferences on Sportscenter. Those were ridiculous and left little wonder as to why he lost his job. I do like Gammons, if for no other reason, because he always seems to have the good inside dirt.

You gotta love Kruk's insight...

"The NL West is still weak!!! The only team that has done anything is the San Francisco Giants, who'll get a big free agent signing with Barry Bonds if he's healthy!!!!!!"

Gammons gets good dirt unless it involves the Yankees or Redsox then its so off the wall its ridiculous. His utter hate foir the yankees has lost him much respect in neutral media's of fans. If you remember all last offseason he said the yankees had nothing in there system that could help them that season, and wouldnt get help till Duncan and Hughes came up. LOL way to go gammons how did Wanger and Cano do this season?

Did any of us experts even see them coming though? I knew of them, but thought they were so-so prospects at best. Maybe I'm far off on that take...

They thought Cano was going to be a call-up in this year rather than last year.

I had no clue about Wang. The kid came out of nowhere and was great. The Yankees really do have good prospects, it's just that they trade them so often for big name players that we don't hear about them.

The A's have asked the Rays about Jonny Gomes as they continue their search for a right-handed bat.
It would have been a lot easier to acquire Gomes a year ago. The Rays aren't letting him go for Joe Kennedy or Kirk Saarloos. Maybe if Justin Duchscherer is put on the table, something could be worked out. The acquisition of a reliever like Duchscherer would make it a lot easier for the Rays to part with Danys Baez.

Actually...not really.

Can you name me a big prospect that has come up over the past few years, from the Yankees farm system? Wily Mo Pena is about the only one who has somewhat of a prominent name, and even he isn't that big.

Most of the Yankee prospects are overhyped because they are Yankee prospects. Alot of them turn out to be nothing special...see: Brandon Claussen. I was flipping out when they traded him for Boone, but he turned out to be nothing special.
