WOW! What a series for the New York Yankees. Coming off of a doubleheader (kind of) against the Nationals on Monday, the Yankees were ready to welcome in the red-hot Mariners for a three-game set. Going into the series, I fully expected the Yankees to play a bit flat on Tuesday, considering it would have… Continue reading These Yankees just don’t know when to quit
The second-place Seattle Mariners (46-26) are making their way into the Bronx for a three-game set.

With all of the faults from the rotation so far in 2018, Luis Severino has proven just how great he really is.

The Yankees are scheduled to start AA prospect Jonathan Loaisiga on Friday at home against Tampa Bay in place of Masahiro Tanaka who is currently on the DL with two strained hamstrings. There is a lot to unpack here; Loaisiga was recently promoted to AA-Trenton after starting the season in High-A Tampa, and only started… Continue reading What to expect from Jonathan Loaisiga
What is causing Gary Sanchez's struggles at the plate? It may not be as bad as we think.

Yes, yes, we know the Yankees need a starting pitcher. Outside of Luis Severino, the Yankees starting pitchers have been…… suspect, to say the least. Sonny Gray, (last seasons' big mid-season acquisition.) was brought on in order to be that guy, but so far has looked lost (see the post I wrote about Sonny and… Continue reading Who are the top five trade targets for the Yankees?
What is the issue with Sonny Gray and what is the next step to fix his issues so far this season?

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.

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
