Aaron Judge, 2017 Fantasy Outlook

Have you seen Aaron Judge hit?  This is the first thing I say to people.  Shoot, I should qualify that.  This is not the first thing I say to everyone.  "Would you like to hear the specials?"  "Have you seen Aaron Judge hit?"  No.  Not quite like that.  It's the first thing I say to people who ask me about Aaron Judge.  In fact (Grey's adding on already?  Well, let's get...

The House That George Built will look quite different next year. Opened in 2009, Yankee Stadium III is undergoing a major construction project beginning this week that will eliminate the obstructed-view seats in the bleachers, cost in the neighborhood of $20 million — all funded by the Yankees — and be completed in time for...

How Yankees inadvertently saved Chapman, Miller for this moment

CLEVELAND — Andrew Miller never worked three consecutive games this season as a Yankee. Aroldis Chapman did it once. The idea, pitching coach Larry Rothschild explained, was to preserve the duo for big games late in the year. Chapman, in particular, yearned to be used more. On three occasions with the Reds, he had pitched...

The Continually Improving of Didi Gregorius

Two years ago the Yankees faced an uncertain future at shortstop following Derek Jeter‘s retirement. The last year or two of Jeter’s career weren’t great, he was a below-average hitter at that point, but there was something comforting knowing he was going to be the guy at the position. Shortstop’s important! That’s not a spot to have a revolving door. Now the future at...

Yankees in AFL: Tate improving; Torres inspired

Healthy again, Dillon Tate is getting some extra work as a reliever with the Arizona Fall League's Scottsdale Scorpions. 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.

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. With the emergence of Gary Sanchez (both offensively and defensively) and the motivation to get younger as a team, it would make sense for the Yankees to move McCann and the $34 million owed to him over the...

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...
