  • Yankees bats not as explosive against Colby Lewis in a 5-2 loss to the Rangers July 30, 2015
    The Yankees have been winning a lot lately but tonight, they fell quite short. It seemed like they had some offensive momentum going in the second inning by scoring two, but after that, New York got completely shut out by Colby Lewis and the Rangers pen. Masahiro Tanaka didn’t allow any dingers this start but [...] Yankees bats not as explosive against Colby […]

  • Hamels off the board: Cole heading to Rangers July 30, 2015
    The race for Cole Hamels appears to be complete. Multiple reports say the Rangers have either acquired Hamels from the Phillies or are on the verge of doing so. Four prospects are heading to Philadelphia in the deal, it appears. There is also some cash involved and possibly other players going to Texas. According to [...] Hamels off the board: Cole heading t […]

  • Game 100: Tanaka time in Texas July 29, 2015
    Today is the 100th game of the season. The Yankees will have at least 57 wins at the century mark this year, hopefully 58, after having 52 wins after 100 games last year and 53 wins the year before. In 2012, the last time the Yankees went to the postseason, they were 60-40 after 100 [...] Game 100: Tanaka time in Texas is a post from: River Avenue Blues The […]

  • 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread: Wednesday July 29, 2015
    Just three days left now. The 2015 non-waiver trade deadline is this Friday at 4pm ET, and while the Yankees have not yet made any moves, I’m sure they will at some point in the next few days. Pitching is a bit of an issue — I’d rather not see Chris Capuano make another spot [...] 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread: Wednesday is a post from: River Avenue Blues […]

  • Does Tanaka have a home run problem? July 29, 2015
    Masahiro Tanaka’s numbers from his last start against the Orioles on July 23 looked solid enough to declare the outing a success — he pitched into the eighth inning, got seven strikeouts, didn’t walk a batter and allowed just three runs on five hits. Yet that sentence leaves out one important number: Tanaka also gave [...] Does Tanaka have a home run problem […]

  • Yankees designate Chris Capuano for assignment, call up Caleb Cotham July 29, 2015
    This isn’t unexpected following last night’s debacle. The Yankees have designated left-hander Chris Capuano for assignment, the team announced. Right-hander Caleb Cotham has been called up from Triple-A Scranton to take his spot on the roster and give the club a fresh arm in the bullpen tonight. Capuano, 36, allowed five runs on three hits [...] Yankees desi […]

  • Poll: The Second Base Situation July 29, 2015
    Yesterday afternoon, the best available second baseman came off the board when the Athletics shipped Ben Zobrist to the Royals for two pitching prospects. The Yankees reportedly had interest in Zobrist, it just didn’t come together. For shame. Zobrist was a perfect fit for the Yankees and I was really hoping they’d land him before [...] Poll: The Second Base […]

  • Yankees, offense absolutely annihilate Rangers for a 21-5 victory July 29, 2015
    There are games where the offense does a pretty good job and there are ones where it absolutely explodes, and then some. Tonight falls into the latter category. After Chris Capuano gave up five runs in the first inning, the Yanks scored eleven in the second and, well, scored ten more later. The Yankees scored [...] Yankees, offense absolutely annihilate Rang […]

  • DotF: Judge’s big day at the plate and in the field helps Scranton to a win July 29, 2015
    Quick note: Yankees prospects will play for the Surprise Saguaros in the Arizona Fall League this year, the league announced. They suited up for the Scottsdale Scorpions the last few years. They’ll share the team with Royals, Brewers, Cardinals, and Rangers prospects. Double-A Trenton pitching coach Jose Rosado will be Surprise’s pitching coach. Triple-A Scr […]
