Carlos Torres... We got him! On a minor league deal. Gardy couldn't mold him in Detroit AAA... All he needs is a little Wes Johnson magic!

More than magic will be needed. I can't imagine that would be though. Perhaps an arm implant of some sort.

It feels a little disingenuous.

They seem to be stocking up on AAA pitchers. One might wonder if in deals being discussed include moving a few of the AAA prospects. It seems like 10 of them have had auditions this year.

Keith Atherton too, a little further down the list. 1987 all over again?

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

Maybe the FO is hoping the Yankees will be laughing so hard they can't swing the bat?

I heard he took a call for Ron Perranoski by mistake and hung up on Falvey.
