  • Game 108: New Faces August 1, 2014
    The trade deadline has passed and tonight marks the two-thirds point of the season for the Yankees. The old saying is that the first third of the season is for evaluation, the middle third is for making changes, and the final third is for riding those changes out. The changes have been made and all […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogGame 1 […]

  • Commenting Guidelines reminder August 1, 2014
    Now that the trade deadline has passed and we’ve all had a second to catch our breath, please make sure you review our Commenting Guidelines. A lot of new people have migrated over to the site recently, so I want to make sure no one misses them. They’re under the “About” tab in the nav […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogCommenting Guidelin […]

  • Yankees send Zoilo Almonte and Zelous Wheeler to Triple-A August 1, 2014
    As expected, the Yankees have sent outfielder Zoilo Almonte and utility man Zelous Wheeler to Triple-A Scranton. The moves clear room on the active roster for Stephen Drew and Martin Prado. The Yankees still need to clear a spot for righty Esmil Rogers, who is joining the bullpen. Chase Whitley is a candidate to be […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Y […]

  • 8/1-8/3 Series Preview: Boston Red Sox August 1, 2014
    This series will certainly have a different feel to it, don’t you think? Both teams remade their rosters with a series of moves prior to yesterday’s trade deadlines, though what the Yankees did was mere tinkering compared to the moves the Red Sox made. We will get our first look at several new faces in […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog8/ […]

    Michael Pineda is scheduled to begin an official 30-day minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton this Sunday, Brian Cashman told reporters following the trade deadline yesterday. “He’s coming back hopefully soon on a rehab assignment to give us more choices in the rotation,” said the GM to Chad Jennings.

  • Thoughts following the trade deadline August 1, 2014
    I know Friday morning is usually the mailbag slot, but c’mon, yesterday was the trade deadline. It wasn’t just any ol’ trade deadline either, it was the most active and unpredictable trade deadline in a long time. Lots of big names were moved, and, somewhat surprisingly, there were a lot of big leaguer-for-big leaguer trades. […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A […]

  • DotF: Murphy homers in Scranton’s win August 1, 2014
    Following today’s trade deadline activity, Brian Cashman told reporters 2B Rob Refsnyder will remain at second base for the remainder of the season. No more experimenting in right field. Happy to hear it. Triple-A Scranton (8-3 win over Gwinnett) LF Jose Pirela: 3-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI 2B Rob Refsnyder: 2-5, […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yank […]

  • Thursday Night Open Thread July 31, 2014
    Well that was a hell of a day, wasn’t it? The Yankees did more or less exactly what I expected them to — make relatively small upgrades without giving up anything of consequence. I don’t know if these moves will be enough to push the team into the postseason, but I’m not sure any series […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogThursday Night Ope […]

  • Yankees to designate Brian Roberts for assignment July 31, 2014
    The Yankees will designate Brian Roberts for assignment to clear a roster spot for the recently acquired Martin Prado, Brian Cashman told reporters. Roberts, who was lifted for a pinch-hitter on Monday and did not play Tuesday or Wednesday, was only two plate appearances shy of triggering a $250k bonus in his contract. The team […]Post from: River Ave. Blues […]

  • Yankees acquire Martin Prado for Peter O’Brien July 31, 2014
    For the second time this month, the Yankees and Diamondbacks hooked up for a trade on Thursday. New York acquired the versatile sometimes infielder, sometimes outfielder Martin Prado from Arizona in exchange for minor leaguer Peter O’Brien, the club announced. The two teams got together for the Brandon McCarthy/Vidal Nuno swap a few weeks ago. […]Post from: […]
