The Yankees do have some decent prospects coming along the way like Mason Willians, Tyler Austin, Slade Heathcott, Gary Sanders and etc.. Will the club stay true to their word and go under the 189 Million Dollar Luxury Tax Threshold next year?  If yes, the club could struggle for a few years like it hasn't for two decades.

These prospects could go  a long way in forecasting their recovery time to contention.

My wife and I discussed double headers and extra innings games.  Somehow the TV show Friday Night Lights and the movie Grease 2 made it into the conversation.

It is the kind of exchange you can only hear on The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Mike Trout, Kyle Blanks, John Danks and Kevin Slowey all owned baseball on June 8, 2013.

Who Owned Baseball Yesterday (June 8th) – Updated Yearly ‘WOB’ Standings

Mike Trout collected four hits over the course of the two Angels-Red Sox games, driving in runs in both games, helping the Halos won the opener, 9-5.

John Danks won his first game since his 2012 shoulder surgery. He went 8 innings, letting up 1 run and 3 hits, retired the final 21 Oakland A’s he faced, en route to a 4-1 White Sox victory.

Kyle Blanks hit a go ahead home run that was enough for the Padres to top the Rockies, 4-2.

And in a game that might still be going on, Kevin Slowey entered the Marlins-Mets game in the 13th inning. He threw 94 pitches, each one could have ended the game if the Mets scored a run. They never did. 7 shutout innings would be a terrific start. It is a fabulous relief performance. And on the road? It is mindboggling.

They all owned baseball on June 8th, 2013.

My explanation for “Who Owns Baseball” can be found here.

At the end of the year, we will tally up who owned baseball the most individual days and see how it compares to the final MVP and Cy Young vote.

When the Dodgers called up Cuban Outfielder Yasiel Puig on June 2, 2013, it was expected to be one of the most anticipated debuts by a young outfielder since Bryce Harper.

Considering the money the Dodgers have spent to bring him to the United States ($42 million for 7 years), he has definitely not disappointed – and has even brought memories of a somewhat recent player that electrified Dodger Stadium in a very short amount of time. Of course, that player being Manny Ramirez.

In Puig’s debut, a game against the San Diego Padres, Puig went 2 for 4 but what really stole the show was a play he did in the track in right field when he threw Chris Denorfia out at first base…ending the game.

Yasiel Puig makes the play in right field to get the last out of the ballgame in his big league debut

Arizona Diamondbacks’ Have Potential Ace In 2013 MLB Draft Pick Braden Shipley

Braden_Shipley

Braden Shipley is a right-hander from the University Of Nevada. He was taken with the 15th pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2013 First Year Player Draft. This also makes him the highest pick in any sport in Wolf Pack history. He has a great fastball that tops out at 98 mph, to go along with an improving curve ball, and a plus change up. He went 7-3 with a 2.77 ERA while striking out 102 batters in 107 2/3 innings this season for Nevada. He has the potential to be a future ace for the Diamondbacks. Arizona also believes that because he has only been pitching full time for a couple of seasons, there is more room for growth than most college pitchers.

By Chris Lacey (Featured Baseball Columnist)

Arizona Diamondbacks have one of the deepest farm systems in all of baseball, in terms of quality arms. They have Patrick Corbin pitching great for them this season, and Tyler Skaggs has already made two starts for them.

There is another pitcher they have in Archie Bradley, who is pitching lights out for Double-A Mobile and could be an ace for them in the rotation.
