Maybe the folks at Baseball America knew what they were talking about after all putting Slade Heathcott 2nd in their top 10 organizational prospect rankings for the Yankees this week. Despite his inability to be smart, eloquent, or a good speller when discussing the election on his Twitter account, Heathcott has been a standout since day 1 in the Arizona Fall League this year. And David Adams, who continues to impress and create buzz for himself heading into ST 2013, has been no slouch either:
Heathcott- .333/.457/.526, 5 2B, 3 3B, 10 R, 12 RBI, 12 BB/14 K in 69 PA
Adams- .261/.363/.507, 10 XBH (3 HR), 9 R, 14 RBI, 11 BB/12 K in 80 PA
And if you're a visual learner, he's a piece from YES.com on the Yankees' AZFL participants. Mmmmmmm, prospects...
P.S.- Heathcott has no neck, Austin Romine looks like he's 35 years old, Mark Montgomery looks and sounds like a meathead who doesn't give a shit about anything other than striking guys out, and Dellin Betances fucking blows.
