Catch 4

The Yankees have their catcher/declining veteran of the future, in Brian McCann. I hope his first season is just a blip, on the radar. They do however, have a small stable of catching prospects. John Ryan Murphy, Austin Romine, and Gary Sanchez. Of the three, I prefer John Ryan Murphy. He has shown the most promise, including, at the major-league level. Austin Romine has lost his prospect-luster and could be tradebait. I think Gary Sanchez is the reincarnation of Jesus Montero, and we know how that turned out. I say, use the "top prospect", to acquire a bat, in the offseason. We need one. I am starting to miss, Brennan Boesch. They gave up on him, way too early.

I forgot to mention, Francisco Cervelli. I like him, but he has to stay healthy. I prefer, trading him and installing John Ryan Murphy, as the backup catcher. I know, I'm not the GM, but I am a fan of this catcher.
2014 Panini Prizm Rookie Autographs Prizms J.R. Murphy-#JR

Do you think more stock is put in a prospect's name or his stats?
Have a good Thursday, and Go Yankees!!!!


  1. Panini Prizm is one of the best values out there. A box guarantees 2 autos and 4 prizm cards. Usually you get at least 3 good numbered cards as well. I've opened a decent amount of 2012 and 2014 and pulled guys like Bagwell, Bernie Williams etc.

    That is a nice Murphy.

    1. I love Prizm. I mainly bust Retail, but it offers quite a bit of color. Topps Chrome might have to watch out if Panini gets a license. Thanks.
