    Making Frazier shave his hair is balls. I wonder how much of a distraction Harper's hair is gonna be.

    I read that as hair AND balls and thought "you've gone too far this time, Yankees."

    There is no team rule saying you have to go as far as shaving your hair. This isn't the army.

    Curious. If you had to choose only one at this point in time, would you take the prospects from the Chapman package or the Miller package?

    Chapman, without thinking twice.

    Hard to beat anything with Gleyber in it.

    I'm not all that high on Clint either.

    This. Frazier has a big bust factor IMO.

    Gleyber >>>>

    Given the upside of Gleyber I think you have to take that package.

    Though I do think if you were to rank the 8 players we got in the 2 deals, Gleyber would clearly be #1 but the other three would be 6,7,8.

    Re: 2017 Yankee minor league news and notes..

    I would go with that package as well now, though not at the time of the trades.

    Plus I really like McKinney. He's like the Campos of the Montero trade. Under the radar but a really nice piece that may or may not pan out.

    I've got another question to ponder - pick one of Judge/Frazier for their career....

    All prospect lists will tell you Frazier is the easy choice. Is he?

    Well, the pile of hair on the floor would all be the same color, so who'd know the difference?

    I just hope they sift through some of it before they make the wigs

    How much of a dick move would it be if the Yankees made him cut his hair and they end up trading him for Quintana? Lol

    In a Fangraphs story about this haircut, they mentioned that the Yanks acquired Darnell McDonald a few years back, and made him cut off his long dreads. They gave him four ABs and then cut him.

    I think Frazier is going to be a good/solid everyday player. Not a star. More of a Nick Swisher type.

    That is such a typical Cashman move.

    That's probably why he acquired him, just to make him cut his dreads off

    Fowler's (non) rankings are purely political to my eye.

    Stripped down, he's an elite athlete/raw tools prospect who was drafted on the hope that he could figure baseball out at the professional level.

    When a prospect like that is putting up counting stats of 150 hits, 57 XBH, 25 SB, and plays a very good defensive CF in AA as the 5th youngest everyday player in the league, there's no reason to keep him off a top 100 list outside of politics. Yes, he has warts, but the totality of his case is crazy positive from a prospect outlet perspective...if they are willing to look at it objectively.

    To be clear, if he was a squat, slow guy who was an advanced stats darling I could understand holding him off. But Fowler was more the opposite at draft time - an old-school scout's toolsy athlete with limited baseball refinement compared to other draftees. He had the raw tools and athleticism for the prospect lists, but not the production, and this past year he continued to correct that "problem" in an undeniable way.
