Game 93: A Very Good Game I’d Watch Again


Looking back at the Yankees’ 2016 Draft


  1. WaitingOnTheKids

    I always enjoy reading these DotF reports. Do we have a sense yet as to whether these respective leagues are considered hitters’ leagues or pitchers’ leagues? I see all these walks and wonder, is it the pitcher or the good eye of hitters? Same with when some of these hitters put up three- or four-hit nights. It all probably shakes out in the end, but I remember how the PCL used to be considered a hitter’s league, so you’d have to take those numbers with a grain of salt.

    • Jack H.

      This is a great question. Would love to know the answer.

  2. RetroRob

    The Yankee farm system is looking as strong as it has in a few years, maybe since the Severino, Judge, Yo Soy Gary, Gleyber, Bird, Monty, etc. group. Wouldn’t surprise me at all if the Yankees system is rated in the top five at season’s end. Volpe. Starting SS for the NY Yankees in 2023!

  3. Steven Tydings

    Love this as always, Bobby. Shouts to all the 2019 Volpe heads!
