When Yankees’ GM Brian Cashman decided to stay pat at the July 31 Trade Deadline and not make even one move for a starter, a lot of questions were raised and some fans were outraged. That outrage was backed up by the fact the Yankees’ starters, over a six-game period from July 20-25, allowed a horrendous 15.59 ERA, allowing 41 earned runs and 12 home runs over 23 2/3 innings. As terrible as this was, did the Yankees really NEED a starter at the deadline? Well, the performance of the starting staff since July 31 has been almost in spite of Cashman not making a move, and the Yankees’ plans with how to use the starters and bullpen are enough to make a deep run. They have even started to try out a new tactic with their starters which I will get into more later. Continue reading

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.

What Is Dallas Keuchel Worth?

John Supowitz | May 10th, 2019

 

The MLB offseason was an interesting one due to free agency, meaning the lack thereof. Some veterans, expecting big pay-days, had to settle for less than expected and a smaller number of years, quite a few noticeable acquisitions only received one-year contracts. We’re over a month into the new season, and there are still players seeking employment, including Dallas Keuchel.

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.
