At the start of the offseason, Wilkins de la Rosa and Eric Hacker were added. Neither of these players should be on the roster too long this year. de la Rosa is a decent starter, but isn't ready. Hacker is a log reliever/ 5 starter. He isn't quite ready either. Steven Jackson was called up now and is very good in the bullpen. Expect to see him this season a little. He was acquired in the RJ trade. Chris Garcia will not be seen this season and do not expect to see him ever. He is very overrated and must be traded. In my first post you probably saw the amount of SP we have. He is no where near these guys. Michael Dunn was also called up. He is underrated and I really like him. Michael Dunn would probably best be a reliever, but I am not sure what the Yankees plan to do with him. I think this is the best thing to do. Would be better than most of our current good set-up men and a little less tha a closer like Jon Ortiz, Melancon, Whelan or Venditte. Anthony Claggett was received in the Sheffield trade. Claggett is a good middle reliever, but I thik he is a good starter. Now we need him to be a long reliever because of a our surpluss of relievers.

Hey, I have changed the name of my blog from Sports and more sports to this. Now I can focus on one topic. I might talk about a couple of other sports on this also.
Jesus Montero- We all know him. His power is uncanny and divine. The only ? is where do we play him. He is a Catcher with the stature of Big Papi. I really like him at DH. Could we really play him at 1B?
Seth Fortenberry- Best OF arm. Good Defensive replacement. Might be better than Mondesi
I consider Gardner already in the majors and far too late for him to make this list b/c it really is for minor leaguers.
