Fifteen runs: Did the Yankees just use up their allotment for the week?

Listen: It's great to see the Cueball, Brian McCann, return to Turner Town and whack a three-run Wolf Blitzer. Trouble is, it came as a postscript to a 15-run blowout, and my Nancy Grace spider sense began tingling before he touched second.  Fifteen runs. Woop woop. But will that be it? Did our heroes salt their stats to compensate for last week's malaise against Cleveland...

No Longer Boom or Bust: Brian McCann’s Yankee Stadium Production

In the winter of 2013, Baseball Prospectus ranked Brian McCann as the off-season’s fourth best free agent. At the time, he was a 29-year-old, prime-of-his career catcher and a career .277/.350/.473 hitter. McCann had six seasons of at least 20 home runs and a career 10 percent walk rate. When he signed with the Yankees that December, it seemed like a major upgrade for a team whose...

Brian McCann tops buy-low options for the 2nd half

There are few things in Fantasy Baseball more difficult and more rewarding than sending the perfect trade proposal. You never want to lowball an opposing owner and abruptly end the trade discussion, however; you also don’t want to include that unnecessary extra piece when they would’ve accepted a lesser offer.

Though Horrible, Yankees Brian McCann Taking Steps To Change

They say the first step toward getting rid of a problem is to admit that you have one. Brian McCann has a problem, and last night he admitted it.After signing his big free agent deal in the off-season, McCann was expected to provide much-needed lefty power to the Yankees lineup, especially toward Yankee Stadium's short porch in right field. So far, however, that hasn't quite happened...

How the New York Yankees will make the playoffs

The New York Yankees missed out on the playoffs for the 2nd time in nineteen years last spring. This year there is still a chance for the boys in stripes. Figuring out exactly what they need to do in order to get there might be harder than actually making it happen. Luckily for you I did my research and I think I have a few ideas how our New York Yankees can snatch up a spot in the...

To any Yankee fan who happens to read this post in the year 2018, we're sorry about the Brian McCann thing

OK, look: I'm not trying to be a downer. Really, I swear it. I understand that the Yankees had to do something, and signing a catcher is a worthy place to start.I just wonder if a 5-year deal (with an option on six) for a 30-year-old catcher is a smart long-range strategy, and - frankly - if there will ever even be a long range strategy for the Yankees. It costs us our first round...
