Why Betances may have huge success

By Andrew Marchand

I got a chance to spend a lot of time with Dellin Betances for my story on how he was in the bleachers for David Wells' perfect game. The take-away that could mean everything (or admittedly nothing) was how easily he likely will be able to handle New York.

Maybe this is because he is from New York or maybe it is because of how he was raised. But I don't think the Yankees have to worry about if Betances will be able to handle the bright lights. The 22-year-old seems to have a real good head on his shoulders.

Now, if he can get his 6-foot-8 frame to move in harmony the Yankees may have a guy who could one day pitch his own perfect game.
