A little prospect news

- Project Prospect ranks the top 25 prospects every couple weeks, and their latest rankings include a top duo of Yankees - #1 Phil Hughes, #2 Joba Chamberlain.

- The Gulf Coast League playoffs started today, and the Yankees won 6-4, coming behind from a one-run deficit with three in the bottom of the eighth. Jesus Montero (the best power hitter in the Yanks lower minors) had a HR and a walk. Abe Almonte (the fastest player in the entire organization) went 2-5.

- A slew of 2007 draftees made their professional debuts with the GCL Yankees recently. 2nd round catcher Austin Romine went 1-2 with a double, walk and K. 4th round third-baseman Brad Suttle went 0-3 with a K. 10th round shortstop Carmen Angelini went 0-1.

- A good and accurate read on the Trenton Thunder, whose games I regularly attend.

- Alan Horne, of the aforementioned Thunder, was named the Eastern League's Pitcher of the Year.
