TGP Prospects Night Open Thread featuring Dellin Betances

I know it's not Throwback Thursday but this post was too good to pass up. This video follows around and showcases current Yankees reliever Dellin Betances just a year after the team took him out of high school in Brooklyn, New York. Dellin was a starter at the time and received the nod to be the Staten Island Yankees Opening Day starter for the 2007 season. This video showcases Dellin in an interview with the big right-hander, members of the Yankees minor league coaching staff and a whole lot more. If you have a minute, or six, take the time to watch this and reminisce about the time Dellin Betances was a Yankees prospect and a starter rather than the dominant relieve that we all know and love today. I hope you have a great night and fellas, time to go Valentines Day shopping...

    Most where picked in the days when a few buddies and I made the rounds of many minor league teams to see them play a few games first hand and got to talk with some of the coaches and a very few scouts.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
