 Cassandra Kubinski is a rarity…very similar to the legendary solo artists of the early to mid 1970’s…she proves that the genre [singer/songwriter] is not only alive and well, but that it is still capable of being transcendent. – Billy Joel

Cassandra Kubinski began her career doing musical theatre at the age of 12.  Since then, she’s released 4 albums, toured from NYC to LA to Germany to Jamaica, and opened for folks like Anna Nalick, Dickie Betts, and Ingram Hill.

Her latest album, “Just Being Myself”, features adult contemporary hit trumpeter Chris Botti, as well as 15 originals in her theatrical pop style.  

Her music has been heard on NBC, ABC, Bravo, MTV, VH1, and more, including 7 song placements on Lifetime’s “Dance Moms.” As a vocalist, she’s done jingles and commercials for the USPS, Barnes and Noble, Homegoods, Kohls, Capitol One, Dunkin Donuts, MTV, Tampax and more.  

She also works to raise awareness and acceptance for Autism through her song “Not So Different”, which has raised thousands of dollars for autism causes and been featured on ABC, NY1, and many Autism websites.  Let’s not forget, she is also a baseball fan and references a certain team in some of her songs.

This week DOWN ON THE FARM….

As stated my Major League article this week, Triple-A lost several assets this week to the Major League club. Austin Romine and Vidal Nuno were both called to the Majors to help ease some of the injury woes facing the Bronx Bombers.  

While those new names will graces the scorecards in the Bronx, there are some familiar names still hanging around Scranton, who deserve a bit of attention this week.

 Chien-Ming Wang has started two games since his return to the Yankee organization.  Wang has managed to keep runners off base and has delivered 22 ground outs in 2 starts.  

Obviously, every Yankee fan remembers the terrific seasons where Wang posted other-worldly Ground Ball Rates of above 60%.  If his shoulder is healthy and his sinker is, well, sinking, Wang could be a very useful depth piece as the season rolls along for this organization.

Yankees Update: Bad News On El Capitan While The Team Keeps Winning

Derek Jeter. The Yankee Captain. A future Hall of Famer.  Last October, Jeter broke his ankle during the American League Championship Series.  All off-season, it was reported that Jeter would be ready for Opening Day.  After a series of set-backs, it has now become clear that due to a small crack in his ankle, Jeter will not be ready until after the All-Star Break. Can the Yankees survive without their captain? Only time will tell.

By Nicholas Rossoletti (Yankees Correspondent/Trade Correspondent):

Transitions are rarely easy.  People, generally, are creatures of habit and routine.  Change is almost always seen as a scary thing for most.  Yankee fans are no different.  The transition from the old guard is an overwhelming theme to this season for the Yankees. 

As Week Three of the Major League season moved along, the Yankees received more bad injury news on their shortstop, Derek Jeter.  The Yankee captain suffered a significant setback in his recovery from a broken ankle when it was reported that a small crack had emerged in the same location as the injury. 

Reports had indicated that Jeter’s surgery would prevent such a re-occurrence.  Obviously, this is not the case, and now, the Yankees will be without their shortstop until at the very least the All-Star break.

Yankee fans’ reaction was obvious as the news broke.  For the better part of two decades, Jeter has been the constant in the Yankee lineup, and this injury reminds Yankee fans, again, that the times, they are a changing.

Almonte is showing his stuff at Triple-A, Particularly, his plate patience is something to keep an eye on and may land him in the Bronx sooner than originally expected.

Almonte is showing his stuff at Triple-A, Particularly, his plate patience is something to keep an eye on and may land him in the Bronx sooner than originally expected. In Scranton, Zolio Almonte has begun to separate himself from Melky Mesa as the more advanced outfield prospect.  The Most exciting thing about Almonte is how he is managing Triple A Pitchers  He Has worked out 10 Walks – while putting up a very impressive .512 OBP.

By Nicholas Rossoletti (Yankees Correspondent/Trade Correspondent): 

Yankees Report From Down on the Farm:

As of the writing of this paragraph, Almonte had worked another two Walks to further improve that On Base Percentage.  The ability to control the strike zone and force pitchers to throw strikes may be the most important factor in promoting a ball player.  

In the pre-season, we talked briefly about Almonte as a potential replacement for an injured Curtis Granderson.  While Vernon Wells has obviously filled the ranks of the Yankee Outfield, should there be regression from Wells or further injury, Almonte is beginning to show himself as a real option to get Major League At-Bats.

The Tampa Yankees are the High-A affliate for the Yankees and served as the home for Gary Sanchez, Mason Williams, Tyler Austion and Slade Heathcott during the 2012 season.

The Tampa Yankees are the High-A affiliate for the Yankees and served as the home for Gary Sanchez, Mason Williams, Tyler Austin and Slade Heathcott during the 2012 season.

By Nicholas Rossoletti  (Yankees Correspondent/Trade Correspondent): 

Heading into the 2013 season, few things in the Yankee universe have been more controversial than the organizations goals to get under the $189 million salary mark after the season.  It has been largely debated as to whether such a goal is realistic for an organization known for spending wildly in its never-ending pursuit of championships.  

It is also hotly debated whether the goal will have the desired effect of taking some of the Yankee millions out of the revenue sharing arena and placing them back into the Steinbrenner family pockets.  I won’t spend much time discussing the benefits or negatives of a team sticking to a 189 million payroll, but I will say that it is very possible to build a world champion well within that budget.

The first step to building a future champion regardless of how much money the Yankees spend is to follow the formula that brought the Yankees success over the past two decades: build a base around young talent.  So with this article we will take a look at the prospects that Yankees fans have to hope pan out and begin heading for the Bronx.
