Ellsbury homers in 4-1 loss to Rays

It looks like we might see Didi Gregorius in May after all. Especially since he’s on his way to resume baseball activities. Prior to Wednesday’s finale against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Yankees announced Gregorius began the throwing program the team announced earlier in the series. Gregorius is slated to throw everyday for […]

Didi Gregorius begins throwing program

In a span of half a season, the Yankees now have the second-best farm system in the Major Leagues, only behind the rebuilding Atlanta Braves. Part of the reason for that was trading veterans Aroldis Chapman, Carlos Beltran and Andrew Miller at the August deadline. Chapman and Beltran were in the final years of their […]

Sabathia, Headley lead Yankees to 5-0 win over Rays

The Yankees clearly don’t have multiple options at shortstop, especially with Didi Gregorius on the disabled list. However, Gregorius has taken a major step in his recovery which means we could see Gregorius sooner than we think.

Gary Sanchez and CC Sabathia don’t exactly have an abundance of work together under their belts. They had exactly one start together on August 6th, and for Sabathia the outing didn’t go well. He gave up three runs on two homers in 5.2 IP against the Cleveland Indians. After that, Sabathia […]

While the Yankees are focused on transitioning into a youth movement, they have to rely on their veterans to carry them. The Yankees veterans, notably Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury and Chase Headley are hoping to contribute in a big way this season. Not only are they hoping to lift the weight off the […]

Yankees veterans need to ‘do their jobs’ and step up

History was made on Sunday afternoon when the Yankees took on the Tampa Bay Rays for Opening Day. Unfortunately it wasn’t the feel-good history that the Yankees can brag about for the rest of their franchise’s existence. Masahiro Tanaka had one of the ugliest starts you would ever see, allowing […]

Masahiro Tanaka makes history on Opening Day

It’s safe to say yesterday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays didn’t go well for the New York Yankees. The Yankees were down early, and the only thing that went right was the Yankees bullpen (Tommy Layne, Adam Warren, Jonathan Holder, and Chasen Shreve) pitching 5.1 scoreless innings. So what exactly went wrong for […]

What went wrong for the Yankees yesterday?

Excitement is back in the Bronx, but for the time being winning may not be as the Yankees are trying to supplement a shaky rotation with one of its youngest-ever lineups that features the new face-of-the-team Gary Sanchez. For those tired of the mediocrity of the past few years and […]
