New York Yankees 2019 Season Recap

Alex Kielar | November 7th, 2019

Any season that ends without hoisting the Commissioner’s Trophy for the New York Yankees is considered a disappoint. So when the Yankees lost to the Astros in six games in the American League Championship Series, there was obviously a lot of disappointment. But that doesn’t mean it was a complete and utter failure of a 2019 season. Let’s delve further into the Yankees’ 2019 season and what to look forward to for 2020.

MLB DFS: ALCS Game Four Showdown

John Lepore | October 17th, 2019

Game Four of the ALCS was supposed to be last night. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans. What the change in schedule does for us though is it gives us a rematch of the Game One starters. It will be cool at Yankee Stadium tonight, and the wind will be blowing out toward the short right-field porch at about 16 mph. There should be a few souvenirs for the fans in those seats tonight.

ALDS Preview: New York Yankees vs Minnesota Twins

John Lepore | October 4th, 2019

Two teams that won over 100 games this season will begin their battle in the Bronx tonight at 7:07 ET. This series should be full of scoring as the Yankees and Twins were #1 and #2 in HRs (Twins 307-Yankees 306) and runs (Yankees 943-Twins 939). The pitching will have to be on point for both sides as mistakes in the field and on the basepaths will give the other side extra outs. Neither team can afford that with the firepower these squads have. Let’s break down the matchup.

DraftKings Around the Horn September 27th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |September 27th, 2019

A full helping of games awaits us for Friday night. Make sure to pay close attention to lineup construction and news on potential capping of starting pitchers innings from here until Sunday. Many managers will rest players to close out the season if there is nothing left to gain. Bats to focus on will be the Bronx Bombers at Globe Life Stadium in Texas and the Brew Crew and the Rockies at Coors. Let’s party one more time kids (for the Regular Season anyway), let’s go Around the Horn!!

DraftKings Around the Horn September 19th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |September 19th, 2019

Tonight will be a good night to practice what it will be like once playoff baseball begins in October. Way fewer games to pick from for our starting lineups. All toll just five are on the docket for the evening slate. Pretty straight forward, we have an ace going for Cleveland against the woeful Detroit Tigers. As for bats, three powerhouse offenses should be targeted as they are all in good spots against a left-handed starter. Let’s get right to it and go Around the Horn! Continue reading

DraftKings Around the Horn August 21st, 2019

Joel Dorcas |August 21st, 2019

Our focus will be on the night slate. We’ve whittled it down to a handful of games that project for high run totals to help build your offense. The highest totals as of this morning are as follow: Angels at Rangers(11), Phillies at Red Sox (12), Royals at Orioles (10.5), Yankees at Athletics (9.5) and finally the Astros at home to the Tigers. Let’s get right to it and Go Around the Horn! Continue reading

MLB DFS: Core Plays and Stacks for August 15, 2019

Joey Ricotta \ Aug 15th, 2019 

A nice and easy slate of games on hand for tonight. What makes DFS easy? Nothing. But we feel like it’s easier when there aren’t as many games being played. It helps us narrow down our research and eliminate overlooking good match-ups. With that said, you still never know what is going to happen. That is the beauty of sports. That is the beauty of baseball. Anything can and most likely will happen. But that shouldn’t stop us from trying to predict how the games will go. Here are some guys in good spots that I’ll be using as Core Plays tonight. Continue reading

Into the 80s with Tom Greene- New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers

Tom Greene \ Aug 14th, 2019

81 wins for a team means they are assured they can finish no worse than .500. However, if you have 80 wins in August, you’ll finish above .500, guaranteed. You’ll most likely make the playoffs, too. Of course, barring catastrophic injuries or a strike.

On the radio, Tom Kent brought us back into the 80s on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night, dependent on where you are in the nation and what radio station you listen to. For me, it was Saturday night. In 2019, I bring you back into the 80s, by breaking down the teams that reach 80 wins. We had two that reached that mark last night. Let’s get to work.

MLB DFS: Studs and Scrubs for August 12, 2019

Joey Ricotta Aug 12th, 2019

Not much to be said today as far as an intro goes. The title speaks for itself. I’ll be taking a studs and scrubs approach tonight, especially when it comes to pitching. There aren’t a whole lot of options to like. So, why not pay all the way down? Continue reading

Trade Deadline Spotlight: Yasiel Puig

Daniel Corrigan | July 29th, 2019

 

It’s safe to say the blockbuster offseason trade for the Reds has not worked out. Matt Kemp is gone, Yasiel Puig is likely to be traded, Kyle Farmer has not produced, and Alex Wood just got onto the field this year. Continue reading

DraftKings Around the Horn July 19th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |July 19th, 2019

Yesterday was a bit rocky if you tailed me with Charlie Morton as SP1 as he was nowhere near what we wanted for a good return. The Yankees are as close to matchup-proof as they come as they got to Morton in a 5-1 victory. Tonight we will look to some of those bats in a tasty matchup at home to the Rockies and left-handed starter Kyle Freeland. More on that later, let’s get into this mega 14 gamer, let’s go Around the Horn! Continue reading

The AL’s Best Team on July 1st. The NL’s Best Team on July 1st.

Tom Greene | July 2nd, 2019

On the first of June, the Minnesota Twins and the Los Angeles Dodgers stood atop their respective leagues. Both were rolling. Both had comfortable division leads. Now, on July 1st, a team has overtaken the Minnesota Twins for best in the American League. Thankfully for our @jball0202 and my friend @Audra_Martin, the Twins still hold an eight-game lead in the American League Central. So, it certainly wasn’t the Twins fault they don’t hold the best record in the American League. This new team has just been on fire. Let’s break down who the best teams are on July 1st.

2019 New York Yankees Preview

Christopher Dinkins | February 27th, 2019

It’s a new year and we are here to get into the 2019 season for the New York Yankees. I had the Yankees winning the World Series last year, but they fell short to the eventual world champion Boston Red Sox in the Divisional round. But its a new year, and you live and learn. The Yankees went through injuries and a less than stellar year from one of its main power bats. But last year is over and its time to focus on this season and putting some heat on those guys in Massachusetts.

John Supowitz | February 18th, 2019

The New York Yankees announced they signed SP Luis Severino to a four-year $40 million extension, with a fifth-year team option. This move has set a positive precedent for the Yankees going forward into the 2019 season. Continue reading

Greatest Moments in Sports History: Bonds Stands Alone. Part One in a Five Part Series

Daniel Corrigan | January 16th, 2019

The day that I’m writing this marks the one-year anniversary of the Minneapolis Miracle. When the Vikings defeated the Saints in the NFC Divisional Round on a circus catch and score by Stefon Diggs.

I was reading my timeline of that day and I saw everyone proclaim this as one of the greatest moment in sports history. Is it though? This sparked this idea, to give my top five moments in sports history.

ALDS Preview: Red Sox vs Yankees

Jamie Gatlin | October 5th, 2018

The Boston Red Sox will host their rivals the New York Yankees at 7:30 PM ET on Friday. This will be another October classic for these division foes. It is one of the most intense rivalries in baseball and they will meet in the postseason for the first time since 2004. Continue reading

Wild Card Preview – Yankees vs. Athletics

Givanni Damico | October 3rd, 2018

The New York Yankees host the Oakland Athletics at 8PM ET tonight. While the Yankees set the major league record with 267 HRs, the A’s were no slouch clubbing 227. With a bullpen game likely in store from the A’s side, the Yankees throw Luis Severino who couldn’t get out of the first inning last year. This could be a slugfest.

Aaron Judge – Chip Fracture

Beth Sullivan | July 30th, 2018

Aaron Judge was in the 1st inning of Thursday’s game when he was hit by a pitch.  He was later removed from the game due to continued pain and swelling and underwent additional imaging which revealed a distal ulnar styloid chip fracture which was non-displaced. That was a mouthful just to type, let alone understand. What exactly is wrong you ask.

Brian Handzel | July 16th, 2018

The All-Star game marks the halfway point in the MLB season, even though all teams have played over half of their games. I want to take a look at the first half of the 2018 season and hand out my first half awards.
