Yesterday, we graded Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner. Today, we move to right field where we’ll grade Aaron Hicks. Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi acquired Hicks as part of a ‘fourth outfielder project’. One entire season later and…what was the point of Aaron Hicks again? Last offseason, the Yankees traded John Ryan Murphy to the Minnesota […]

Yesterday, we graded center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury. Today, we move to left field where we grade Yankees homegrown Brett Gardner. Many believed when the Yankees traded for Ellsbury that Gardner would be the odd man out. However, the Yankees found room for both players. But after they shared the outfield for the last […]

Yesterday, we graded Mark Teixeira‘s final season in Yankees pinstripes. Today, we move to the Yankees outfield where we’ll grade center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury. Ellsbury would have had a decent year…if he wasn’t making $153 Million dollars as part of an eight-year contract. Unfortunately, adding his contract in makes Ellsbury’s season a […]

Yesterday, we graded Yankees third baseman Chase Headley. Today, we move onto first  baseman Mark Teixeira, who played his final season in Yankees pinstripes and graduated into the world of retirement. Teixeira’s final season was full of ups and downs, but it was hard not root for someone who loved playing […]

Yesterday, we graded Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius, who continued to seamlessly replace former shortstop Derek Jeter. Today, we move to third base where we’ll grade the player Yankees fans love to hate, Chase Headley. Yes, Headley had an abysmal April, but he flew under the radar and ended up having a good season […]

Yesterday, we graded Starlin Castro‘s season at second base. Today, we move to shortstop where we’ll grade Didi Gregorius. This was Gregorius’s second season with the New York Yankees, and so far he had been everything the Yankees could have wanted.  During the 2014 offseason, the Yankees traded for shortstop Didi Gregorius, […]

Yesterday, I graded Yankees backup infielder Tyler Austin. Today, we grade Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro, who may have had a decent year offensively, but was sabermetrically a disappointment. When the Yankees shipped off Adam Warren and Brendan Ryan to the Chicago Cubs for Starlin Castro, they were filling the hole Robinson Cano left when he […]
