Pirates pursue unlikely two-game sweep of Yankees

The disparity between the Pittsburgh Pirates and visiting New York Yankees is easy to spot -- in record, statistical comparisons, payroll -- but that's not the whole story.

Yankees sign relief pitcher Richard Rodriguez to contract, here’s what he’s bringing

The New York Yankees’ bullpen has been facing a bit of adversity lately, specifically in the injury department. With Jonathan Loaisiga working his way back from shoulder inflammation and Ron Marinaccio being placed on the injured list with a shoulder issue, the team dove into the free-agent market for a supplement.

Yankees potential trade partner: Detroit Tigers

Peter Aiken-USA TODAY Sports

The Tigers have floundered in 2022, and will look to move veterans at the deadline. What do they have to offer the Bombers?

When it comes to profiling sellers on the trade market, it helps for the rebuilding team in question to have a star nearing free agency. That kind of scenario typically makes the process of finding a trade easier; the bad team has something that all the good teams want, and with the star possibly on his way out the door, the club has...

MLB Best Bets Today (Luis Severino Set For Bounce Back Game, Plus Two More Strikeout Props)

Our return from the weekend didn’t go as well as planned. While we hit on the Sandy Alcantara prop (shoutout to the Los Angeles Angels for being an automatic fade), Nick Lodolo had an incredibly efficient eight strikeout day.

The Yankees’ internal alternatives to the struggling Joey Gallo

Gallo has been especially awful in recent weeks. The Yankees will scan the trade market for a replacement, but in the short-term, they have in-house options as well.

For a brief time in June, it seemed like Yankees outfielder Joey Gallo was about to break out of his season-long funk. That doesn’t appear to be the case anymore, and one has to wonder how long the Yanks will keep sticking with him until he figures things out before pursuing an...

Rivalry Roundup: Rays, Astros win, I am sad

Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

I don’t like these teams and yet, they managed to make it work.

We started off on the wrong foot last night because the Yankees lost, and that always leaves you feeling less-than-great about the night in baseball. New York came into Pittsburgh against a not-great Pirates team and looked pretty flat, dropping game one of this two-match set, 5-2.

On top of that, though, both the Rays and the Astros were able to pull off wins last night, as though the...

Yankees Prospects: Week 13 minor league review

Estevan Florial had an amazing week and Triple-A Scranton is playing its best baseball of the season.

Over the last week, Yankees affiliates won three and tied one of their series. After struggling for most of the season, Triple-A Scranton has taken off in the past month behind the play of some of the most notable prospects on the roster. Across the system, the pitching continues to be a strength as several pitchers recently turned in their best...

After one more game in Pittsburgh, it’s on to Beantown.

I’ll be honest: I did not see any of the Yankees’ 5-2 loss to the Pirates last night. I was at a trivia event and not looking at my phone much at all, and no, that didn’t result in victory either. Oh well. At least I got to avoid watching the Yankees struggle to score runs against Literally the Pirates. Hopefully they’ll fare better tonight, when I will be watching.

Good news and bad news as Yankees drop tough game against Pirates

Yankees 2, Pirates 5: Lineup can’t cash in despite 10 hits

The Yankees were held to just two runs as they dropped the series opener in Pittsburgh.

The extremely impressive start to the season for the Yankees has given us plenty of reasons to believe in them, but there was always going to be some amount of regression to the mean. While they’ve still had some solid performances recently, it does appear the Yankees are dealing with some of that regression and are in a bit of a slump.

Once again, the Yankees’...

The Yankees ended their previous series on a down note, getting one-hit in a 2-0 loss to the Guardians. They’re set to try and bounce back from that with some interleague action and their first trip to Western PA since 2017. The Pirates have some exciting...

Yankees have a stud catcher prospect quickly climbing the ranks

The New York Yankees failed to get the most out of catcher Gary Sanchez before trading him to the Minnesota Twins this past off-season. Sanchez had a few stand-out campaigns, but after 2019, he failed to hit more than 23 home runs in a given season, averaging below a 30% on base rate.
