  • March 21st Spring Training Notes: Sevy, Bird, Wade, Frazier, Florial, Gonzalez, Sabathia, Mazzilli March 21, 2019
    ?Your browser does not support iframes.The Yankees got thumped pretty good by the Cardinals today. Gleyber Torres had a double and a walk, Gio Urshela had a double and a single, and Miguel Andujar had a single. The B-Team couldn’t get much going on offensively. Then again, when Ryan Lavarnway leads the starting lineup in […] The post March 21st Spring Traini […]

  • An updated look at the Yankees’ projected 2019 Opening Day roster as the injuries continue to mount March 21, 2019
    One week from today the Yankees will open the 2019 regular season at home against the Orioles. Masahiro Tanaka will be on the mound that day, not Luis Severino, because Severino suffered a shoulder injury earlier this month. That has been the story of Spring Training thus far. Injury after injury after injury. The Yankees […] The post An updated look at the […]

  • A Full Year of a Healthier Zack Britton [2019 Season Preview] March 21, 2019
    Going into last season, I don’t think anyone expected the Yankees to have to reinforce their bullpen at the trade deadline. There’s nothing wrong with adding to a strength though, plus Aroldis Chapman’s knee was aching and Tommy Kahnle had crashed hard, so the Yankees shipped three second tier pitching prospects to the Orioles to […] The post A Full Year of […]

  • Spring Training Game Thread: March Madness March 21, 2019
    Including today, the Yankees only have five more exhibition games to play this spring. Four Grapefruit League games plus Monday’s exhibition game at Nationals Park. We’re beginning to see the light at the end of the Spring Training tunnel. Soon meaningful baseball will return. The Yankees are on the other side of Florida to play […] The post Spring Training […]

  • Thoughts one week prior to Opening Day 2019 March 21, 2019
    In seven days the Yankees will open the 2019 regular season at Yankee Stadium against the Orioles. Meaningful baseball is only one week away. Thank goodness for that. Hopefully no one else gets hurt between now and then. Anyway, I have some thoughts on things, so let’s get to ’em. 1. Two recent contract extensions […] The post Thoughts one week prior to Open […]

  • March 20th Spring Training Notes: Sevy, Wade, Montgomery, Chapman, Happ, Sabathia, Mazzilli March 20, 2019
    ?Your browser does not support iframes.The Yankees dropped this afternoon’s game to the Astros. It’s their first loss in nearly two weeks. Jonathan Holder threw two scoreless innings as the opener but did allow a lot of hard contact. The wind knocked some balls down and his defense made some nice plays. It was a […] The post March 20th Spring Training Notes: […]

  • Barring another injury, Jacoby Ellsbury will force the Yankees’ hand soon March 20, 2019
    At some point in the next month or two, the Yankees will have to make a decision on the future of Jacoby Ellsbury. His extended absence came to an end when he reported to Tampa last weekend. Although he won’t be ready for opening day, it seems like his saga is nearing an inflection point. […] The post Barring another injury, Jacoby Ellsbury will force the Ya […]

  • The Overqualified Sixth and Seventh Relievers [2019 Season Preview] March 20, 2019
    On paper, the Yankees have a comically deep bullpen with three or four (or five?) relievers who would qualify as the best reliever on a not insignificant number of other teams. Things don’t always play out the way they look on paper, that’s just baseball, but the Yankees have clearly assembled an enviable collection of […] The post The Overqualified Sixth an […]

  • Spring Training Game Thread: Another Opener March 20, 2019
    Over the last few weeks Aaron Boone has gone from “you don’t envision that” to “I would expect there is a good chance” when asked about possibly using an opener this season. Due to injuries, something that wasn’t in the cards is now a very real possibility. Chad Green opened yesterday’s game — “I think […] The post Spring Training Game Thread: Another Opener […]
