The End of Mark Teixeira’s Career

Last year, the Yankees qualified for the postseason thanks largely to Mark Teixeira‘s resurgent season. He rebounded from brutal second half in 2014 to hit .255/.357/.548 (143 wRC+) with 31 home runs in 111 games in 2015. Unfortunately, a foul ball to the leg ended Teixeira’s season in August. He suffered a small fracture in his shin and had to be shut down. Greg Bird filled...

The Yankees’ Five Biggest Hits of 2016

For the third time in the last four seasons, the Yankees missed the playoffs in 2016. They did stay in the race longer than I expected, which I guess is better than nothing. Despite another postseason-less season, the Yankees recorded several memorable moments in 2016, including more than a few walk-off home runs. Those are always cool. Let’s take a look back at the five biggest...

Luis Severino’s Big Step Back

For all the attention the Yankees received this year for selling at the deadline and going young in the second half, the youth movement actually started last season. Rather than make a trade to aid the 2015 postseason push, the Yankees called up some of their very best prospects and gave them prominent roles in the final two months of the season. That was a change from the previous...

Yankees giving fans the social Stadium upgrades they asked for

The House That George Built will look quite different next year.

Though he gave up four runs in five innings over his first four appearances, he has flashed the fastball and slider that made him the first first-round pick in UC Santa Barbara history and earned him a $4.2 million bonus.

Are Starlin Castro’s days with the New York Yankees numbered?

Having been acquired from the Chicago Cubs last off-season, Starlin Castro had been the primary second baseman for the New York Yankees in 2016. After making a smooth transition from shortstop, the 26-year-old second baseman may be looking at the position for the Yankees long term. However, the Yankees may not quite be on the same page. The Yankees have a couple of middle infield...

The farewell tour for Vin Scully is unlike anything we have seen in modern sports. Sure, we’ve seen Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter’s goodbyes but the longevity and consistency in which Scully performed is almost unmatched. Performing solo in the booth for as long as he has is an accomplishment all by itself. Los Angeles loves him and more importantly, the Dodgers love him. He...

Though trade rumors have died down surrounding catcher/DH Brian McCann, the issue of trading him will likely resurface in the coming weeks and months for the New York Yankees.

Luis Cessa was too predictable for baseball as a rookie

Part of what makes baseball so interesting is that the sport allows for completely inexplicable things to happen all the time. Hockey, football and basketball are played in more restrictive and uniform spaces. You’re less likely to see a hockey player do something you’ve ever seen before because there are only so many ways to fill a space that with the exact same dimensions in...

The shift did Dellin Betances no favors in 2016

In most of the ways a pitcher can be great, Dellin Betances was in 2016. Despite having put together absolutely ridiculous seasons in 2014 and 2015 he set personal bests in K%, K-BB%, ground ball percentage, infield fly percentage and fastball velocity. In most cases, that makes for a career season, but that’s not how the big right-hander’s campaign will likely be remembered...
