NYY 6, TOR 4: Ichiro hit a home run

204

Ichiro hit a home run, Kuroda got run support, the Curse of Buehrle continues, and the Yankees have now won seven of their last eight after the All-Star Break. I made you all a tin foil hat.

Get to know new Yankee Chase Headley

Chase Headley, after years of rumors, is finally a Yankee. But how much do we really know about him?

OOTP 15 Review

I'm generally a pretty big fan of baseball video games. I started playing the MLB 2K series about ten years ago, played MLB The Show, and that's generally what I thought I would continue to play....

Yankees potential trade target: Ian Kennedy

The Yankees could have a reunion with Ian Kennedy this trade season

Controversy or not, a special night for Jeter

It was a cool moment. Don't let some "grooved pitch" controversy (or Jeter hatin') ruin that.

Why are Ellsbury's defensive metrics unfavorable?

23

Something's wrong here.

The Yankees will not be sellers at the deadline

89

The Yankees will not sell. And you don't want them to. Promise me, you don't.

Who is Brandon McCarthy?

17

For the next few months, Brandon McCarthy will be a Yankee. Let's get to know the new starting pitcher.

Yankees DFA Alfonso Soriano

Thanks for the memories, Sori.

Is Derek Jeter's "hot streak" just a mirage?

Jeter has hit near league average over his last 100 PA, but this could just be an illusion.

What if the Yankees had traded Ichiro?

It's been recently leaked that the Yankees allegedly tried to dump Ichiro on to the Houston Astros. What would have happened if a similar deal got done?

Should the Yankees eat Alex Rodriguez's contract?

Dealing with questions about mediocre play is better than dealing with questions about mediocre and Alex Rodriguez. Do the Yankees care enough about that to just eat all of his remaining salary?

The woman who struck out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig

The Yankees made history by facing the first female baseball player and she obliged by striking out their famous sluggers. Will that day come again?

Thankfully, Brian McCann can frame pitches

He's under-performed offensively, but luckily half of his value comes from a skill that doesn't incorporate slumping.

Don't be a pessimist about the Yankees

Put the "Fire Cashman" and "Sell! Sell! Sell!" narratives on the back burner and just look at the facts.

Solarte's plate discipline is a certainty

3

While it's unclear whether Solarte can keep up his offensive output, his plate discipline shows that he might be able to do just that.

Kuroda is trying to make adjustments

Kuroda's velocity has progressively dropped the past two years, causing him to alter his pitch selection and hone his command as his margin of error has decreased. With his recent troubles, he may...

What do Betances' comps tell us about his future?

Betances is on pace to have one of the best seasons from a reliever in modern history. Given his historical comparisons, what does that say about his future?

Whitley is proving his worth in the rotation

In limited time, Whitley has shown (so far) that he deserves a shot at a permanent spot in the starting rotation.

MLB Draft 2014: Reliever system depth

With the draft fast approaching, what relief pitching depth do the Yankees already possess?

MLB Draft 2014: Starter system depth

With the draft fast approaching, what starting pitching depth do the Yankees already possess?

How valuable are Girardi's challenges?

In terms of Win Probability Added, I take a look at how much better Joe Girardi is in deciding challenges over a "replacement manager".

Gardner is quietly having one of his best seasons

After recently signing a four-year extension, Brett Gardner is proving already that he is worth every penny.

Is it time to give up on Mason Williams?

He has had a poor start to 2014 and has not had an above average season since 2012. Does he still deserve the title of "top prospect"?

NYY 1, NYM 0: Whitley shines in his debut

113

After dropping the first two games in the Subway Series, a strong debut by Chase Whitley and a dominant bullpen performance helped give the Yankees a series tie.

Who will the Yankees sign internationally?

13

The Yankees are poised to go on an international shopping spree come July 2nd, but who is on their radar?

NYY 1, LAA 13: Angels blow out Yankees

26

It was a special night at Yankee Stadium, as the Yankees took on the Angels for "RailRiders Impersonation Night".

NYY 5, Rays 11: The bullpen implodes

54

It looked like it would be an easy Yankee win, until the Rays blew that idea to smithereens. Seriously. The game blew up.

The time is now to sign Stephen Drew

The infield is in shambles, so it's time for reinforcements.
