The Continually Improving of Didi Gregorius

Two years ago the Yankees faced an uncertain future at shortstop following Derek Jeter‘s retirement. The last year or two of Jeter’s career weren’t great, he was a below-average hitter at that point, but there was something comforting knowing he was going to be the guy at the position. Shortstop’s important! That’s not a spot to have a revolving door. Now the future at...

Are Starlin Castro’s days with the New York Yankees numbered?

Having been acquired from the Chicago Cubs last off-season, Starlin Castro had been the primary second baseman for the New York Yankees in 2016. After making a smooth transition from shortstop, the 26-year-old second baseman may be looking at the position for the Yankees long term. However, the Yankees may not quite be on the same page. The Yankees have a couple of middle infield...

What NYCFC, Red Bulls must do to lock up prime playoff spots

Momentum and postseason positioning are the remaining goals for the Red Bulls and New York City FC in their respective MLS regular-season finales on Sunday. For NYCFC, a win over Columbus at 4 p.m. at Yankee Stadium is much more imperative than the Red Bulls defeating Philadelphia on the road, because the Red Bulls are...

Meet the ex-Yankees with the gnarliest postseason beards

You’re not stunned that Andrew Miller went from the Yankee to the Indians in a July 31 trade and became the American League Championship Series Most Valuable Player, right? We saw how good he was as a Yankee. We knew the Indians were headed for the playoffs and, in Terry Francona, employ a manager who knows...

The Second Half Setup Men

The Yankees opened the season with maybe the most dominant bullpen trio in baseball history. For a few months a lead after six innings was close to an automatic win. Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller, and Aroldis Chapman protected basically every lead they were given. The Yankees weren’t very good overall, but they always had the advantage in the late innings. Things changed dramatically...

WATCH: Vin Scully opens Game 5 with signature line

The farewell tour for Vin Scully is unlike anything we have seen in modern sports. Sure, we’ve seen Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter’s goodbyes but the longevity and consistency in which Scully performed is almost unmatched. Performing solo in the booth for as long as he has is an accomplishment all by itself. Los Angeles loves him and more importantly, the Dodgers love him. He...

The Very Talented and Very Frustrating Michael Pineda

It’s hard to believe Michael Pineda just completed his fifth season with the Yankees. It still feels like he just got here. Of course, Pineda didn’t actually pitch in two of those five seasons because of his shoulder surgery, but still. The trade was five years ago. Man, time flies. That was such a wild day, the day of the trade. The Yankees hoped Pineda would emerge as an ace...

New York Yankees: Trade Brian McCann?

Though trade rumors have died down surrounding catcher/DH Brian McCann, the issue of trading him will likely resurface in the coming weeks and months for the New York Yankees. With the emergence of Gary Sanchez (both offensively and defensively) and the motivation to get younger as a team, it would make sense for the Yankees to move McCann and the $34 million owed to him over the...

Luis Cessa was too predictable for baseball as a rookie

Part of what makes baseball so interesting is that the sport allows for completely inexplicable things to happen all the time. Hockey, football and basketball are played in more restrictive and uniform spaces. You’re less likely to see a hockey player do something you’ve ever seen before because there are only so many ways to fill a space that with the exact same dimensions in...

The shift did Dellin Betances no favors in 2016

In most of the ways a pitcher can be great, Dellin Betances was in 2016. Despite having put together absolutely ridiculous seasons in 2014 and 2015 he set personal bests in K%, K-BB%, ground ball percentage, infield fly percentage and fastball velocity. In most cases, that makes for a career season, but that’s not how the big right-hander’s campaign will likely be remembered...
