Reporters spar over report linking Stanton to Yankees

With a new ownership group set to take over the Miami Marlins, there have been rumblings that Giancarlo Stanton and his 13-year, $325 million contract could be traded to usher in a new era. The New York Yankees are one of the teams that have been mentioned as potentially being interested — depending on who you ask, of course.Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reported on Saturday that the Yankees have inquired about Stanton. Heyman said there is no indication talks between New York and the...

Yankees 6, Mariners 4: So that’s what winning a series feels like

Home runs and great bullpen work add up to a solid Sunday victory.

The Yankees were guaranteed a series split against Seattle by winning the first two games on Thursday and Friday. Normally, splitting a four-game set on the road is a good run in my books, but after keeping pace with Boston last week, and disappointing against the Twins, this felt like a series the Yankees really needed.

They didn’t disappoint, rallying after a poor end to Caleb Smith’s first MLB start to win the series...

Why the Yankees’ trade deadline strategy is smart

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has promised to maximize the present while protecting the future.

The Yankees shocked the baseball world last season by doing something no one was accustomed to seeing from the richest franchise in sports: They became sellers at the trade deadline. The club dealt four players, three of whom were pending free agents, in exchange for a treasure trove of prospects. They did this while still in contention, causing many to wonder if the organization had...

What if the Yankees’ first half never happened?

Submitted for your approval: the case of one Yankees team whose first half disappeared.

Every year, Grant Brisbee looks at what narratives would emerge on the baseball blogosphere if April didn’t exist. What would the headlines read if the season began on May 1st? It’s a nifty exercise that illustrates how quickly we jump to conclusions. Our tendency to make generalizations based on little evidence knows few limits.

This thought experiment kicked around in the back of my head for a...

The Yankees-White Sox trade is not without risk

The Yankees improved their team, but the players they received come with inherent downside.

The Yankees made a significant trade this week. They received Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle from the White Sox. The main prize they sent to Chicago was Blake Rutherford, along with lesser prospects Ian Clarkin and Tito Polo. The trade unquestionably makes them better this year, and probably in the future as well.

Frazier is an upgrade. He has a 102 wRC+, a real improvement on Garrett...

Yanks inquired about Stanton; Frazier above Ellsbury on depth chart; Gary’s road to the majors; Judge’s towering home run; Farm system is still one of the best

FanRag Sports | Jon Heyman: There are two big baseball boys in the majors. The Yankees have one in Aaron Judge. The other, Giancarlo Stanton, plays for the Marlins. The Yankees are enjoying Judge’s monster dongs and thought “two giant baseball bashing humans are better than one!” So they apparently checked in on Stanton to...

Watch Aaron Judge crush a home run so hard he broke Statcast

Aaron Judge continues to set personal milestones and shatter previous records for MLB rookies this season. Judge crushed a ball so hard on Friday night that it landed near the top of the Safeco Field stands, and even Statcast couldn’t follow it. It was the Yankees slugger’s 31st home run of the year, putting him atop the league leaderboard for dingers. He was previously tied with Giancarlo Stanton, but broke that in a big way. By that, we mean that he broke Statcast — literally. The...

Yankees going after Giancarlo Stanton & stud pitching ace

Just when the New York Yankees started showing the rest of the Major Leagues that they are serious about building their team through the use of their farm system and developing players, a blockbuster trade inquiry hits the blogosphere. But this isn’t just any “blockbuster” trade, this deal would involve arguably baseball’s best player, Giancarlo Stanton. However, the Yanks are said to also have an interest in Texas Rangers ace, Yu Darvish. And with the loaded farm system the Yanks...

Yankees 5, Mariners 6: Seattle walks off in extras

Former Yankees have big days against their old team.

Well, that was a letdown. The Yankees failed to secure their third win in a row tonight, losing 5-6 in 10 innings. Former Yankees Ben Gamel and Robinson Cano killed the current Yankees tonight. Cano was 2-4 with a walk and a game-tying home run in the 8th, and Ben Gamel hit a home run in the third and scored the game-winning run in the 10th. It’s never fun to watch another team walk-off, but this was a hard fought game. The Yankees did...

Yankees Trade Rumors: Giancarlo Stanton Reportedly Subject of New York Interest

The New York Yankees were reportedly among the teams that made an exploratory call to the Miami Marlins about the availability of outfielder Giancarlo Stanton.

According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, the Yankees called the Marlins "weeks ago" to make an initial inquiry. However, Heyman cautioned "there's no evidence any Stanton talks are ongoing with the Yankees at this time."

Furthermore, Heyman added it's unlikely Stanton—who has a full no-trade clause—is moved this season since owner...

How Joe Girardi should maximize the Yankees new bullpen

How new additions Kahnle and Robertson could impact the team down the stretch.

Just a few days ago the Yankees’ season seemed to be slipping away after a feel good start. On June 12th the Yankees held a four-game division lead over the Red Sox and had a 88.1% chance of making the playoffs and a 51.8% chance at the division crown per Fangraphs’ playoff odds. Since then the team has gone 11-22, highlighted by a seemingly never-ending series of bullpen calamities. With last year in mind...

The lesser known players to wear legendary Yankees’ numbers

For every Derek Jeter, there’s also a Yats Wuestling.

Some fans got up a bit up in arms when Todd Frazier said he was going to talk to Paul O’Neill about possibly wearing #21 with the Yankees. While he’s now given up on that idea, it was briefly a thing some people got mad about.

While numbers often get associated with one Yankee legend in particular, with the exception of #4, they’ve all been worn by someone else. With that in mind, lets take a look at some of the less good players...
