  • DotF: Montgomery dominates again in Scranton’s win August 26, 2016
    Got some notes and links to pass along: RHP Bryan Mitchell (toe) was activated off the 60-day DL and optioned to Triple-A Scranton, the Yankees announced. They had an open 40-man roster spot, so no other move was required. Assuming Mitchell comes up when rosters expand on September 1st, he won’t spent 20 days on […] The post DotF: Montgomery dominates again […]

  • Thursday Night Open Thread August 25, 2016
    Your browser does not support iframes.The Yankees have an off-day today and will open a pretty important three-game series with the Orioles tomorrow. They play them again next weekend too. This is a chance to gain some ground in the wildcard race. Anyway, make sure you check out Wally Matthews’ story on outfield positioning. Yankees […] The post Thursday Nig […]

  • Yankeemetrics: Babe Sanchez does it again [Aug. 22-24] August 25, 2016
    Gary is Good Despite the superhuman feats of a scorching-hot Gary Sanchez, not to mention a two-dinger night from the streaky Starlin Castro, the Yankees still managed to lose the opener in Seattle, 7-5. It snapped their eight-game winning streak at Safeco Field, which was tied with the White Sox (2011-12) for the longest by […] The post Yankeemetrics: Babe […]

  • Thoughts following the West Coast trip August 25, 2016
    The Yankees just wrapped up a successful six-game West Coast trip that still somehow feels like a bit of a letdown. I guess because the two losses were close games that were very winnable. The Yankees are five games back of the Orioles for the second wildcard spot, and wouldn’t you know it, six of […] The post Thoughts following the West Coast trip appeared […]

  • Tanaka dominates, Sanchez homers again in 5-0 win over Mariners August 25, 2016
    Source: FanGraphs Gosh, that was so close to being a perfect West Coast trip. The Yankees went 4-2 in the six games, and they allowed only two runs in one loss and held a two-run lead in the other loss. Blah. They beat the Mariners in Wednesday afternoon’s series finale by the score of 5-0. […] The post Tanaka dominates, Sanchez homers again in 5-0 win over […]

  • Game 126: End of the Road Trip August 24, 2016
    This was only a six-game West Coast trip but it sure felt a lot longer, didn’t it? A lot happened. Gary Sanchez mashed, the offense vanished for a game in Anaheim, Anthony Swarzak barfed all over a close game Monday night, CC Sabathia dominated yesterday … lots to unpack with this trip. The West Coast […] The post Game 126: End of the Road Trip appeared firs […]

  • Sorting through the Yankees’ long list of September call-up candidates August 24, 2016
    One week from tomorrow all 30 clubs will be able to expand their active rosters and carry up to 40 players. Most clubs carry fewer than 40 players once rosters expand, and that’s their choice. Roster size is not an unfair advantage if one team calls up ten extra players and another only calls up […] The post Sorting through the Yankees’ long list of Septembe […]

  • Yankees top Mariners 5-1 thanks to Sabathia’s great start, Ellsbury’s homer August 24, 2016
    Source: FanGraphs Tuesday night’s 5-1 win over the Mariners was one of the Yankees’ best all-around games in quite a while. Just a real solid, crisp win. Good pitching, good hitting, the works. I want to see more games like this the last five and a half weeks of the season. West Coast night games […] The post Yankees top Mariners 5-1 thanks to Sabathia’s gre […]

    Apologies for the tardiness. The game is already underway. It’s scoreless after one as of this writing. The post Game 125: Late Game Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

  • Tuesday Night Open Thread August 23, 2016
    Tonight the Yankees will play their final West Coast night game of the season. Hooray for that. The Yankees have three more 8pm ET starts remaining (in Kansas City next week), then it’s nothing but day games and 7pm ET starts the rest of the way. That’s music to my ears. This team isn’t worth […] The post Tuesday Night Open Thread appeared first on River Ave […]
