Morning Bits: Branyan, Spring Training, Kuroda

Good morning all we are now 10 days away from pitchers and catchers reporting to spring training.

Let’s get right to the links….

* The Daily News mentions the Yankees powered up by adding Russell Branyan.

* Here is a list of a bunch of players the Yankees have invited to spring training.

* The New York Times says little mystery surrounding Kuroda.

  1. Keith Law’s Top 100 is out. (insider only)

    I will give you the yankees

    23. Banuelos
    34. Mason Williams (WOW)
    55. Gary Sanchez
    83. Betances

  2. Below is all i have for the Red Sox
    62 Xander Bogaerts
    100 Blake Swihart

    The names i gave earlier must have been from a previous year or something not updated.

  3. check this out…. I would be in favor of this move. Hopefully Pitt changes their mind.

    • That would be a very nice coup for the Yankees if the somehow they could pull off the deal.

    • Matt, I’m obviously jumping the gun here. But it makes you wonder. Should the Yankees be able to work a trade with the Pirates for Jones.
      Could that also pretend another possible move. I could see an Andruw Jones/Garrett Jones platoon in right field and a possible trade of Swisher not to far down the road.

      That would free up some pretty decent dollars for maybe a Hamels or Cain signing at the end of the season should they make it to FA.

      Do any of us really know where all of this could lead?

  4. Just wondering…am I the only one that doesn’t want to see A.J Burnett leave?

  5. Garrett Jones would be OK i guess. Still think they had a no-brainer of a trade they could have made for Seth Smith before Billy Beane swooped in and stole him from Colorado. Of all the names I hear being thrown around, none of them have the numbers vs RHP that Smith does. I’ll cry in my cornflakes about Smith until they get a good bat.Waaa! lol
