NEW YORK – According to multiple reports from both Yankees fans and the New York media, the new young player on the New York Yankees may very well become one of the greatest baseball players of all-time — if he hasn’t already reached that status.
“Oh, you have no idea,” said one Yankees fan. “This kid is special. We’ve not had anyone like him come through our system since Jeter. But, I’m being honest here: he can be better than Jeter, in all due respect.”
The same Yankees fan said this year’s can’t-miss prospect is even better than the guy he said pretty much the exact same things about last year.
“No, it’s totally different with this kid,” said the fan. “That kid last year just had a few good weeks. But this guy is sustainable. In fact, I think we’re just seeing the start of what he can do. His numbers are only going to get better and better. He’s young. Pretty much every record is in his reach. We’re looking at multiple MVPs and then probably them waiving the waiting period for the Hall of Fame.”
If there’s any downside to the abilities of this current new Yankees guy, claims another Yankees fan, it’s that he could have trouble keeping his starting job in a few years.
“If you think this kid is special, you should see some of what we’ve got coming up in the system,” said the fan. “The best prospects in baseball. When they all get up here, there’s not going to be a team that can beat us. I don’t if 162-0 is possible, but we’re looking at some 150-win seasons easy.”
In order to cater to the demand to see the new Yankees guy, ESPN has announced the Yankees will be featured in every Sunday Night Baseball telecast for the remainder of the season.
