  • Hillman confirms Yankees offered him job overseeing farm system October 22, 2014
    Via Evan Drellich: Former Yankees special assistant Trey Hillman confirmed the team offered him the opportunity to replace the retiring Mark Newman as their VP of Baseball Ops and head farm system honcho.

  • 2014 Season Review: The Greene Monster October 22, 2014
    The Yankees were saddled with a ton of position player injuries last year, including Mark Teixeira‘s wrist, Curtis Granderson‘s forearm (and hand), and Derek Jeter‘s ankle. The result was far too much playing time for guys like Lyle Overbay, Vernon Wells, and Eduardo Nunez. The offense stunk. It was a lot worst than it was […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A Ne […]

  • Injury Updates: Sabathia, Claiborne, Murphy October 22, 2014
    Even though the Yankees haven’t played a game in nearly a month now, there are still some injuries that need updating. Here’s the latest on the walking wounded, courtesy of Pete Caldera, Dan Martin, George King, and Josh Norris.

  • MLBTR’s Projected Arbitration Salaries for 2015 October 22, 2014
    At this time last season, the Yankees were still talking about getting under the $189M luxury tax threshold for the 2014 season. It was definitely doable, but it would have been very difficult, especially since the team wanted to contend at the same time. Eventually the Yankees abandoned their luxury tax plan and they didn’t […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A […]

  • 2014 Season Review: Better than nothing from the keystone? October 21, 2014
    Not gonna lie: The original title of this season review was “Nothing from the keystone.” It sure seemed that way, given that Stephen Drew and Brian Roberts combined for 458 of 631 total PA from the position. Add in Brendan Ryan for another 42 and it looks like a downright disaster. Then I saw this, […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 S […]

  • MLBTR’s Offseason Outlook: Yankees edition October 21, 2014
    Just a heads up, MLBTR covered the Yankees as part of their Offseason Outlook series yesterday. It’s a breakdown of the team’s current contract commitments — with arbitration projections, which I’ll examine more closely tomorrow — and the roster issues they face this coming winter. It’s a great general overview of the team’s situation, so […]Post from: River […]

  • Thoughts before the start of the World Series October 21, 2014
    The World Series finally starts tonight after four baseball-less days. That felt like an eternity. My official prediction is Royals in six for no apparent reason. It’s a total guess. More than anything, I want a long and exciting series that goes the full seven games. Both the LDS and LCS rounds were a blast. […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees […]

  • Monday Night Open Thread October 20, 2014
    Long-time Oriole and short-time Yankee Brian Roberts has retired, he confirmed to Dan Connolly. “It was just kind of my time. There were numerous reasons that I felt like I couldn’t play at a level that I was accustomed to and wanted to play at if I continued to play. I always said that I […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogMonday Night Ope […]
