  • 2016 Trade Deadline Rumors Open Thread: Thursday July 28, 2016
    Earlier this week the Yankees swung a blockbuster trade with the Cubs, sending Aroldis Chapman to Chicago for Adam Warren and three prospects. There were an awful lot of rumors and buildup to that trade — that’s a Theo Epstein hallmark — but things have been fairly quiet since. That’s not unusual for the Yankees. […] The post 2016 Trade Deadline Rumors Open […]

  • Yankees can’t finish sweep, drop finale 4-1 to Astros July 28, 2016
    Well that was a letdown. The Yankees had a chance to complete a sweep of the red hot Astros on Wednesday, but the offense fell flat (surprise!) and the pitching wasn’t good enough to compensate. The result was a 4-1 loss and a missed opportunity to gain ground on the Red Sox and Blue Jays, […] The post Yankees can’t finish sweep, drop finale 4-1 to Astros ap […]

  • DotF: Austin and Fowler go deep in wins July 28, 2016
    Got some notes to pass along: The Yankees posted a photo of a bunch of rehabbing players visiting a children’s hospital in Tampa, and the good news is RHP James Kaprielian‘s arm was not in a sling or anything. He went for a second opinion on his elbow a week or two ago and it […] The post DotF: Austin and Fowler go deep in wins appeared first on River Avenue […]

  • Game 101: Suddenly Important July 27, 2016
    The Yankees have gone 11-5 in their last 16 games and suddenly, these games are becoming increasingly important. Both the Red Sox and Blue Jays — the two wildcard teams at the moment — lost earlier today, so a win tonight would bring New York to within three games of the second wildcard spot. They […] The post Game 101: Suddenly Important appeared first on R […]

  • 2016 Trade Deadline Rumors Open Thread: Wednesday July 27, 2016
    The Yankees sure do know how to make things complicated, don’t they? Rather than continue to fade out of the postseason race and into obscurity, the Yankees have gone 11-5 in their last 16 games to climb to within four games of the second wildcard spot. There are still three teams ahead of them, but […] The post 2016 Trade Deadline Rumors Open Thread: Wednes […]

  • The Yankees will soon have to make some decisions about their outfield prospect logjam July 27, 2016
    When the season started, the Yankees were obviously very deep in left-handed hitting outfield prospects at Triple-A and Double-A. That is still the case even after Slade Heathcott was released a few weeks ago. The Yankees not only still have Ben Gamel, Mason Williams, Jake Cave, and Dustin Fowler, they just added another lefty hitting […] The post The Yankee […]

  • As great as he’s been, Yankees shouldn’t consider Beltran a qualifying offer candidate July 27, 2016
    With eleven wins in their last 16 games, the Yankees are a season-high four games over .500 and firmly on the winning side of the ledger. They’ve had a winning record for a grand total of eleven days this season, believe it or not. It would be even fewer than that without Carlos Beltran‘s brilliance. […] The post As great as he’s been, Yankees shouldn’t cons […]

  • Sabathia’s strong start leads Yanks to 6-3 win over Astros July 27, 2016
    Well, if nothing else, at least the Yankees are not going down without a fight this year. They won their third straight game Tuesday night, beat the Astros 6-3 in Houston. I dunno if the Yankees have the talent to climb back into the postseason race, but I’m hoping they at least make things interesting […] The post Sabathia’s strong start leads Yanks to 6-3 […]

  • DotF: Gleyber Torres makes debut with Tampa July 27, 2016
    SS Gleyber Torres has reported to High-A Tampa, the team announced. SS Abi Avelino was promoted to Double-A Trenton to clear a roster spot. Also, OF Jake Skole was released. Triple-A Scranton Game One (3-2 win over Buffalo in eight innings, walk-off style) makeup of yesterday’s rainout CF Ben Gamel: 1-4, 1 K DH Mason […] The post DotF: Gleyber Torres makes d […]

  • Game 100: Can the Yankees get to four games over? July 26, 2016
    Last night the Yankees finally broke through and improved to three games over .500 for the first time this season. Tonight they’re trying to move to four games over .500, which is a bit of a conundrum for #TeamSell. Aroldis Chapman has been dealt and that’s great, but there are others on the roster who […] The post Game 100: Can the Yankees get to four games […]
