Wednesday 9/2
KHL
Dinamo Minsk defeated Jokerit 1-0
Artur Gavrus LW: E, 0/1 Faceoff, 14:24 TOI

Note:
-- Not a Devils prospect but still interesting (to me at least), Jack DeBoer committed to Boston University (source). He's currently playing his prep hockey at Salisbury School in Connecticut. He's '00 so he still has a few more years until he would get to college and of course the major junior route is still an option.

Kelly Zajac just signed a 1 year deal with Lukko of the Finnish Elite League. Contract includes a 2 month tryout period. (Source, Roughly Translated) Hopefully he does well for them. It's too bad that injuries derailed his 2014-15 season after a strong campaign in 2013-14 for Albany.

Glancing at the other UFA's to see where some guys end up. No word if veteran Chris McKelvie will be back but he was just at a team function for the fans. Maybe he's still a player or perhaps he's taking a role in the organization?

Faust was in prospect camp so maybe he'll be back on an AHL deal.

No idea where Timmins, Wohlberg, Carrier, D. Zajac, Fraser, McPherson, Keenan, and Clermont are going to end up.

Note:
-- One World Sports will have Dinamo Minsk vs. Jokerit on Wednesday 9/2 at 11:30 AM. A lot of people don't get that channel but I have it on FiOS (ch 309).

I agree with everything Value just said.

The Yankees already exceeded my expectations. Teixeira has managed to stay relatively healthy and be very effective (145 wRC+ in 462 PA's) and A-Rod who was a great unknown heading into the year has been awesome as a DH (133 wRC+ in 499 PA). I never would've expected those two to do anything close to that this season. Beltran, another guy I didn't expect much out of, has been awesome since May 1 and has a 121 wRC+ on the year. I legitimately thought he was finished.

Besides being happy with the way Didi and Eovaldi have progressed, I'm also pleased with the rebound year McCann is having. He's hitting above league average with solid defense (112 wRC+ - 3rd among C's, 2.9 WAR - 2nd among C's).

It seems lately the Yankees are hitting a wall, which coupled with the Jays big moves, is why things have gone south. Still, I'm glad Cashman didn't overpay on rentals that probably wouldn't have helped all that much. I'm very happy to have held onto Severino, Bird, Judge, Sanchez, Jagielo, and Mateo for the time being. They have a young pitching staff and finally some legit position player prospects in the upper levels of the minors that should be ready soon or could be used in the right trade. I like where this team is going.
