  • Thoughts five days before Opening Day April 1, 2015
    Just five more days. Five more days of this Spring Training nonsense before the start of the 2015 regular season. To say I’m antsy would be an understatement. Win or lose, I feel like this year’s Yankees will be more enjoyable to watch than the last two years. Lots of power arms and way more [...] Thoughts five days before Opening Day is a post from: River A […]

The Associated Press says it’s a done deal, though some comments Martinez made to King yesterday make it seem like nothing is final just yet. “We are talking about it. Seeing minor league teams a couple [...] Yankees discussing […]

  • The Summer of A-Rod: Looking At Upcoming Milestones [2015 Season Preview] March 31, 2015
    As Yankees fans, we’ve been fortunate to see a lot of historic moments over the years. Derek Jeter seemed to pass someone on some all-time list every other game last season. Mariano Rivera rewrote the record book for closers and others like Roger Clemens and Ichiro Suzuki had historic moments while passing through the Bronx. [...] The Summer of A-Rod: Lookin […]

  • Spring Training Game Thread: Tanaka’s Last Tune-Up March 31, 2015
    Six days from now, Masahiro Tanaka will open the 2015 season for the Yankees at home against the Blue Jays after being named the Opening Day starter last week. This afternoon will be his final tune-up of the spring, and really it’s more about Tanaka getting his pitch count up than anything.

  • With four candidates left in camp, Shreve and Whitley are good bets for last two bullpen spots March 31, 2015
    The Yankees open the 2015 regular season in just six days now. And, at this very moment, it’s still not clear who will fill the last two bullpen spots. We know Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances will work the late innings — assuming Betances straightens himself out — and Justin Wilson and David Carpenter will [...] With four candidates left in camp, Shreve an […]

  • TiqIQ: Best 2015 Yankees ticket deals are not necessarily on the secondary market March 31, 2015
    After saying goodbye to legendary closer Mariano Rivera in 2013 and “The Captain” Derek Jeter last year, the 2015 Yankees are hoping to contend with a combination of next generation anchors like Dellin Betances, Masahiro Tanaka, and Didi Gregorius as well as a cast of veterans like Carlos Beltran and Mark Teixeira. Based on prices [...] TiqIQ: Best 2015 Yank […]
  • Monday Night Open Thread March 30, 2015
    Opening Day is just one week away, folks. The Yankees open the 2015 season regular next Monday afternoon at home against the Blue Jays, which is so close and yet so far at the same time. Anyway, the Yankees had an off-day today, their last one of the Grapefruit League season, so there are no [...] Monday Night Open Thread is a post from: River Avenue Blues T […]

  • Domingo German needs Tommy John surgery, apparently March 30, 2015
    According to a post on his Instagram account (journalism!), right-handed pitching prospect Domingo German needs Tommy John surgery. He was in New York recently to get checked out. It’s unclear if he’s already had the procedure or will have it soon. The Yankees have not confirmed anything. German, 22, was acquired from the Marlins in [...] Domingo German need […]

  • A trip through the MLBTR archives: March 2008 March 30, 2015
    Okay, I’m really bad at this. I promised to post these monthly looks back through the MLB Trade Rumors archives early in each month, preferably during the first week, yet I completely forgot about March. Never did it. Time to correct that now. Better late than never, right? As a reminder, I’m not here to [...] A trip through the MLBTR archives: March 2008 is […]
