  • Joe Girardi’s End-of-Season Press Conference: Ellsbury, Gardner, Rotation, Refsnyder, More October 9, 2015
    Your browser does not support iframes.Your browser does not support iframes.Earlier this morning at Yankee Stadium, Joe Girardi held his annual end-of-season State of the Yankees press conference. There was no major news announced — no coaches were fired, no players are having offseason surgery, nothing like that — which is a good thing, I […] The post Joe G […]

  • Mailbag: Kinsler, Yamada, Angels, Pineda, Wildcard, Drew October 9, 2015
    Got ten questions in the mailbag this week. Remember to email us your questions at RABmailbag (at) gmail (dot) com. That’s the best way to send us anything, really. Travis asks: Would Ian Kinsler make sense as a viable trade target or has Rob Refsnyder done enough with his September call up to be given […] The post Mailbag: Kinsler, Yamada, Angels, Pineda, W […]

  • Thursday Open Thread October 8, 2015
    Normally the nightly open thread doesn’t go up until 7pm ET, but I’m going to post it a little earlier today because Game One of the ALDS starts at 3:30pm ET. Now that the Yankees’ season is over, I want to decompress and take it easy the rest of the week. We’ll start our annual […] The post Thursday Open Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues. […]

  • Manager Dave Miley will not return to Triple-A Scranton in 2016 October 8, 2015
    Longtime manager Dave Miley will not return to Triple-A Scranton next season, according to multiple reports. “Dave was great for the Yankees and did a lot of great stuff,” said Brian Cashman to George King. “Obviously, Gary (Denbo) is running (the farm system now) and is trying to put people in places. With new people […] The post Manager Dave Miley will not […]

  • Cashman on Girardi’s status for 2016: “Nobody should be looking for anybody different” October 8, 2015
    Any time a Yankees season ends without a World Series title, the coaching staff and management will have their job security called into question. It happens every year. The Yankees didn’t win so changes need to be made, and it’s easier to get rid of coaches than players. That’s the general line of thinking. Don’t […] The post Cashman on Girardi’s status for […]

  • Pineda and Eovaldi projected for largest arbitration raises in 2016 October 8, 2015
    Now that the season is over, we can start to look forward and figure out which direction the Yankees will go this offseason. They could go big with free agents, they could do nothing and continue to trust their prospects, or they could have another trade-heavy offseason. I’m sure there’s a middle ground somewhere. This […] The post Pineda and Eovaldi project […]

  • Wednesday Night Open Thread October 7, 2015
    Your browser does not support iframes.I have to say, I still haven’t fully processed the Yankees being eliminated from the postseason. The one-game wildcard game is so weird. I still feel like there’s a Game Two coming at some point. Anyway, make sure you check out this Players’ Tribune piece by Francisco Cervelli, in which […] The post Wednesday Night Open […]

  • Update: Yankees give Jorge Mateo time at second during Instructional League October 7, 2015
    October 7th: The Yankees have indeed had Mateo take ground balls on the right side of second base during Instructional League, but only to get him used to playing the shift, reports King. “He’s over there but only working on shifts,” said Brian Cashman. That makes sense. Again, I don’t see any harm in having […] The post Update: Yankees give Jorge Mateo time […]

  • Sherman: Yankees were set to add Eovaldi to ALDS roster October 7, 2015
    According to Joel Sherman, the Yankees were planning to add Nathan Eovaldi to their ALDS roster had they beaten the Astros in last night’s wildcard game. That didn’t happen, so Eovaldi will go home for the winter like everyone else. For shame. Why is this important? Because it means Eovaldi is healthy. His season ended […] The post Sherman: Yankees were set […]
