Lessons to be learned from Aaron Judge's slump

Judge will slump from time to time like everybody else. Just be glad he hits the ball harder than literally anyone else.

Three months ago, in the dog days of August, one question was on the mind of every Yankees fan: “What is wrong with Aaron Judge?” On August 20, Judge had struck out in his 36th consecutive game, setting a new MLB record. His wRC+ at that point stood at 164, which doesn't seem that bad until you consider that it was north of 200 before July started. Judge was mired in a...

Yankees dilemma: Shohei Ohtani, C.C. Sabathia, or both?

Because Shohei Ohtani won’t break even the smallest market club’s budget, the two-way Japanese star’s decision to sign with a MLB club isn’t strangling the free agent signing season that is expected to pick up this coming week. However, when it comes to the Yankees a crowded rotation would become thicker if the 23-year-old right-handed...

2017 Yankees Season Review: Miscellaneous pitchers

Let’s check in on the fringes of the 2017 pitching depth.

Sometimes, the part of the roster that doesn’t draw any attention proves the most important. Year after year, there are at least a few teams that contain a player at the very bottom of their roster, a player so much an afterthought that they could be playing in Independent League in a year’s time, that all of the sudden becomes an important piece.

This very same article would probably have Chad Green on it last year, now one...

Yankees 2018 potential free agent target: Kevin Maitan

The Yankees should take advantage of the Braves’ loss and sign Kevin Maitan

The Yankees don’t have many free agent targets this offseason, but a few surprises are sure to get people interested. Japanese pitching and hitting sensation Shohei Ohtani is expected to be posted in the coming weeks, and another international player is on the market in 17-year-old shortstop Kevin Maitan. The Yankees have the chance to add a young elite talent for the future, and they need to go all-in.

Options for Gleyber Torres; Profiling Thairo Estrada; MLB’s all-Thanksgiving lineup

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Not too long ago, Brian Cashman said that top prospect Gleyber Torres would have a chance to win a starting spot on the major league roster for Opening Day. He cited that people in the organization felt that Torres was ready last year, so there’s no reason he shouldn’t have a shot this year. How likely is that though? While he’ll earn a chance, it’s still most likely that Torres...

2017 Yankees Season Review: Tyler Wade

Just because he looks like Jacoby Ellsbury doesn’t mean he needs to hit like him.

What an eventful season 2017 was for the New York Yankees. You may or may not have heard this before about them, but they defied expectations to get to within one game of the World Series, Aaron Judge treated baseballs as if he was Anakin Skywalker and baseballs were younglings, and Luis Severino finished third in Cy Young voting. All in all, a very memorable year for the Yankees. What wasn’t memorable,...

2017 Yankees Season Review: Adam Warren

Injuries aside, Warren put together one of his best seasons to date.

Over the years, Adam Warren has been shuffled around quite a bit between the rotation and the bullpen. He has also been vocal about wanting to be used as a starting pitcher, and just about every year he’s been in the mix for the last spot in the rotation. This year, Warren was used exclusively out of the bullpen and he pitched really well. Maybe we’ll finally see him stick there.

The Yankees got off to a strong start...

New York Post | George A. King III: Happy Thanksgiving, Pinstripe Alley. If you’re giving thanks this year, perhaps throw some towards Brian Cashman. Maybe you’re waiting for Cashman to sign Shohei Ohtani before you thank him. If you are, good news. According to this article, scouts are saying that...

Hideki Matsui is closer to being a Hall of Famer than you think

Matsui might be sent off the ballot this year, but the totality of his international career requires more consideration.

It’s that time of year again—Hall of Fame election season. I don’t know what compels baseball fans to put such an emphasis on something fans of different sports could not care less about, but the history of baseball means just as much as the present. Baseball is nostalgia, and that generates future interest to create new memories.

There are a lot of names of merit,...

Robertson's charity impacting hurricane relief

In the Yankees' clubhouse, no one is more in tune with the spirit of giving than right-handed reliever David Robertson, whose charitable endeavors off the diamond prompted his fellow Major Leaguers to select him as a finalist for the prestigious Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award this season.

Gleyber Torres will compete for a roster spot next spring, and that’s a good thing even if he won’t win one

You know what’s pretty awesome? The Yankees have a great young core at the big league level in Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, and Luis Severino. That’s the unanimous 2017 AL Rookie of the Year and 2017 AL MVP runner-up, the third place finisher in the 2017 AL Cy Young voting, and the 2016 AL Rookie of the Year runner-up. All were All-Stars this season and none are older than 25. Pretty great. Know what else is pretty awesome? The Yankees also have arguably the best prospect in the minors in...

2017 Yankees Review: Ronald Torreyes

When the Yankees were hit with the injury bug, Torreyes stood tall (figuratively).

Whether it be Homer Bush or Luis Sojo, Yankees fans hold a gritty, hustling utility infielder close to their hearts. Neither was necessarily productive, but they stepped in when needed, occasionally coming up with the occasional clutch hit. That led them to universal acceptance in New York. For at least the 2017 season, you can add Ronald Torreyes to the list.

You could argue Torreyes was needed more in 2017...

2017 Yankees Season Review: Gleyber Torres

Even in an injury-shortened season, we’re happy to announce that #GleyberGood.

When Gleyber Torres arrived to spring training last February, all eyes fixed on the young infielder. Fresh off an Arizona Fall League that saw him capture the Most Valuable Player award, fans and evaluators alike wanted to see the top prospect in action. There was no shortage of buzz surrounding his Grapefruit League debut.

Torres didn’t disappoint, either. He wowed everyone in attendance, hitting...
