The Gleyber effect: How Gleyber Torres has effected the Yankees

Ahhhhh Gleyber Torres....what a difference our 21-year old second baseman has made so far since getting called up to the big leagues on April 22nd.

Yankees finally get their infield help

Brian Cashman did it again, dealing from a place of depth and getting back an extremely valuable piece in return. It is almost unfair just how good this 50-year old, wonderfully amazing human being has been when trading his assets and getting something back in return. Especially with the Diamondbacks. Alright....this trade isn't something some… Continue reading Yankees finally get their infield help

Should Yu Darvish be in pinstripes?

Ahhhhh Gleyber Torres….what a difference our 21-year old second baseman has made so far since getting called up to the big leagues on April 22nd. He has brought excitement, an extremely hot bat, and a certain lightheartedness to the clubhouse that has loosened up this team.

I mean look at the pure joy and excitement coming from him after Didi’s home run in the 10th inning against the Angels, the kid absolutely loves every second of it.

The Yankees are also loving his presence in the dugout, as they are 18-4 in the 22 games since he was called up.

To go along with his teenage-like excitement, Gleyber has also been backing it up with his play on the diamond.

So far, Torres has graded above average in all of…
