These Yankees just don’t know when to quit

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

Series Preview: Seattle Mariners come to town

The second-place Seattle Mariners (46-26) are making their way into the Bronx for a three-game set. The Mariners are coming off of a four-game split with the Boston Red Sox, and have posted a 12-4 record so far during the month of June.

We need to appreciate Luis Severino’s greatness

With all of the faults from the rotation so far in 2018, Luis Severino has proven just how great he really is. At the age of 24, Sevy has entered into the discussion of being one of the top pitchers in baseball (we're coming for that top spot Max Scherzer!) and he seems to be… Continue reading We need to appreciate Luis Severino’s greatness

What to expect from Jonathan Loaisiga

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

Does Brandon Drury have a future in pinstripes?

Brandon Drury has  officially been WallyPipp'ed.  After leaving the game on April 6th due to a nagging migraine issue, Drury has been stuck in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre playing for the Yankees AAA team because of the success of current Yankees third baseman, Miguel Andujar.

Who are the top five trade targets for the Yankees?

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 Clint Frazier’s promotion means for his future with the Yankees

Red Thunder is back! (Or he was back before the team sent him down yet again after the Royals series.) Frazier was called up to the majors to add more depth on the Yankees bench for their two-game series against the Washington Nationals. He remained on the team for their three-game set against the Royals… Continue reading What Clint Frazier’s promotion means for his future with the Yankees

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. He has brought excitement, an extremely hot bat, and a certain lightheartedness to the clubhouse that has loosened up this team. https://twitter.com/Jomboy_/status/990095592331214848 I mean look at the pure joy and… Continue reading The Gleyber effect: How Gleyber Torres has effected the Yankees

Russell Wilson is reporting to Spring Training Monday

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?

The hot stove surrounding free agent RHP Yu Darvish has been gaining some serious traction within the last week.  After a report came out of the Yankees being among five different teams in play for the 31-year old, rumors began swirling of bringing Darvish to the Bronx. It is no surprise that the Yankees are… Continue reading Should Yu Darvish be in pinstripes?

Arbitration

Yankees avoid arbitration with key players

The Yankees were able to avoid arbitration hearings with their key players, and make it more realistic to get under the tax threshold. Here are the players and their deals for the upcoming incentives. Dellin Betances: $5.1 million Didi Gregorius: $8.25 million Sonny Gray: $6.5 million Adam Warren: $3.315 million Austin Romine: $1.1 million Chasen… Continue reading Yankees avoid arbitration with key players
