The story of Frank Glade and one of the Yankees’ first ever bad trades

Glade had plenty of talent. Everything else about him seemed to make that meaningless.

Between questionable free agent signings and some of the infamous George Steinbrenner trades of the late 80’s and early 90’s, the Yankees have some poor personnel decisions in their history. One of the earliest in team history is the trade for Fred Glade.

Glade grew up in Nebraska as the son of a wealthy mill owner. He played baseball in his spare time, and had enough talent to get noticed by...

First Matt Holliday then Dellin Betances bails out Yankees

In a perfect world for the Yankees, Dellin Betances entering a game with a one-run lead in the eighth inning would be ideal. However, Aroldis Chapman is out with a left shoulder injury, so this is not an ideal time for the Yankees, and manager Joe Girardi would have rather not have had to summon...

Yankees 3, Athletics 2: Holliday’s late homer puts the Bombers on top

An excellent performance from Sabathia and a clutch home run give the Yankees the advantage.

I really love games where the Yankees seemingly snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, and this was a classic example. Even though they were no-hit until the sixth inning, and somehow held the lead until then, a clutch home run and clutch relief performances put the Yankees over the top. It was close, but it feels good.

In the very first inning, the Yankees put two runners on through a Gary Sanchez...

Aaron Judge, Dubble Bubble, and other Yankees’ superstitions

It appears that Aaron Judge is superstitious. Let’s look at other Yankees who had their own quirks.

Baseball seems to have more superstitious oddities than any other sport. When I was in high school, we were to never, under any circumstance, step on the foul lines before the game started. Why? I have no idea. That’s what the upperclassmen told me during warmups one day, and for whatever reason, I believed it to be necessary.

These beliefs spill over to the major leagues, as was most...

Yankees backing off Chase Headley as Gleyber Torres stews

Chase Headley’s ineffectiveness at the plate has finally landed him on the bench. Joe Girardi said he intended to sit the third baseman Saturday and Sunday in hopes it would allow him to clear his head and get him to relax. “I just feel like [Headley] is in that situation where he’s frustrated and trying...

Chase Headley’s departure isn’t a foregone conclusion

Gleyber Torres’ promotion to Triple-A is big, but it shouldn’t run Headley out of town.

Chase Headley is having another season of extremes. After a stellar April, his bat has cooled off immensely this month. This drop-off, and Gleyber Torres’ recent call up to Triple-A, has some questioning if Headley’s days in New York are numbered. He may be on his way out, but the Yankees will likely have a difficult time moving him, and his salary, out of the organization.

After turning in...

Yankees 1, Athletics 4: Masahiro Tanaka strikes out a career-high 13 batters, Yanks still lose

Tanaka put together his first good outing in weeks, but the bullpen and offense didn’t do him any favors.

All eyes were on Masahiro Tanaka tonight, and this outing was exactly what he needed. After giving up a whopping 14 earned runs over his last two starts (over just 4.2 innings), Tanaka put together a bounce-back performance tonight. Through seven and one-third innings, Tanaka struck out a career-high 13 batters and didn’t issue a single walk. It might be too soon to determine whether...

Flawed New York Yankees Providing Hope Now And For The Future

When it comes to the New York Yankees, a season really does make all the difference. The 2017 Yankees come with plenty of flaws but that hasn’t stopped them from captivating their fans while providing hope all along the way. The 2016 New York Yankees finished the season with a record of 84-78. Coming into last season the Yankees faced several questions but there was a tint of hope casted over the season after making it to the playoffs in 2015. As 2016 went on, the hope slowly went away for...

New York Yankees vs. Oakland Athletics: Series preview

The Yankees will get back to work after a rainout with a home series against Oakland.

The Yankees dropped three in a row last week, but they responded nicely in winning three out of their last four. After a rainout yesterday, they'll resume play at Yankee Stadium with a three-game set against the Oakland Athletics. This will be the A's first trip to the east coast this season.

At first glance, these Athletics look pretty terrible. They sit in fourth place in the AL West at 21-25, but even...

A look at the worst first base production in baseball

The Yankees are one of the best teams in the league. They’re doing it with absolutely no help at first.

Picture Greg Bird. Now, picture Greg Bird in spring training earlier this year. Now, picture Greg Bird in late May, sprawled out on a couch in his boutique Manhattan hotel, shoveling microwaved popcorn into his mouth and giggling softly at Tom Hanks fruitlessly trying to catch Leonardo DiCaprio posing as a Pan American pilot.

That is apparently how a cornerstone of the Yankee youth...

The bullpen deserves a lot of credit for New York Yankees’ success

The New York Yankees’ bullpen has been stellar, in particular; the backend has been lights out. With Aroldis Chapman on the disabled list, Dellin Betances has taken over the closer role as Adam Warren and Tyler Clippard currently man the seventh and eighth innings, respectively. These men have been so dominant that the Yankees currently hold a 24-0 record when leading through eight innings. Essentially, once the bullpen comes into the game with a lead the Yankees do not lose. Betances...
