As Ichiro flounders, the world looks to Seattle to do what's right

The Yankees have a looming problem in right field. It's rather simple. They have nobody to play it. Oh, technically, you can say they have ol' Carlos Beltran and the amazin' Met, Chris Young. Carlos moves like the famous Bud Selig statue in Milwaukee, and Young got hot last September and boosted his average to .222! In another era, the Yankees would be sifting through free agents...

After all the recent upheaval, has the Yankee bullpen improved? The answer may depend on how we read Hemingway.

I like the idea that the Yankees have gotten slightly younger. Everyone does. But unless we sign some farm-fresh 17-year-old Cuban, or shoot off into some Christopher Nolan wormhole, the 2015 Yankees will still be more ancient than the $99 stadium dirt from Steiner Collectibles. Lately, I've seen a few ridiculous claims popping up around the Yankiverse about some "super bullpen,...

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Yankees have reached a one-year agreement plus incentives to bring back outfielder Chris Young. Chris Young's deal with the Yankees: 1 year, $2.5m, plus incentives. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN...

Reason why the Yankees never develop young players No. 139: Chris Young is about to re-sign

Last September, the Yankees found OF Chris Young in a Mets' dumpster and took him home. They washed him, buffed him, greased his hinges, and he looked spanking brand new. (Why does that sound dirty?) For two weeks, he looked solid, batting .282 with three home runs! They thought, "Good grief, if he can hit like that for an entire season, he'd smack 50!"Apparently, they're about...

Cutting Chris Young Should Be Next On To-Do List

Could it really be this easy? Could cutting Chris Young be the answer to all of the Mets problems this year? Of course not. As Mike Vaccaro wrote today in the New York Post, cutting Young would be a scapegoat of sorts, but simply his presence on the team contradicts the entire edict of this team. Sandy Alderson is a man of accountability and Young has been a drain on an otherwise...

Chris Young: Is he deja vu all over again?

There’s an old saying, “those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it”. It seems that while watching the 2014 version of the New York Mets, that management hasn’t learned that lesson. For example, in December of 2009, the Mets outbid no one in order to overpay for a solid defensive corner outfielder that was supposed to have a big bat too. That player is Jason...

New York Mets trade rumors: Rockies edition

Questions have been swirling over the past two weeks regarding the Colorado Rockies’ apparent willingness to part with shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and/or outfielder Carlos Gonzalez. The New York Mets have been mentioned in connection to both players as we are slightly more than 24 hours away from the trade deadline. Certainly the Mets have a need for both. Ruben Tejada still has...

Chris Young Strikes Out Four Times, Now Batting .196

Chris Young may have had one of his worst games as a Met today, going 0-for-4 with four strikeouts and failing to hustle on a line drive into the outfield that got by him. Young saw his batting average drop to .196 with a .283 on-base percentage. The fans at Citi Field let him have it, booing and jeering Young after each long walk from home plate to the dugout. “You’re out...

Chris Young, Low and Away

It is a tough predicament when you have a true weakness. Nowadays, with data available on every facet of the game, there is no way to hide it. Chris Young must know this. When a blogger, like me, sitting on my couch at home can find out how to pitch to Young’s weakness, then surely opposing pitchers will do the same. So what is this obvious weakness in Chris Young’s game? When...

Chris Young Could Be In Line For A Breakout Season With The Mets

Chris Young has 20/20 potential. There is no doubting his ceiling is high—he is a former All-Star who plays excellent defense. The problem has been that since his breakout 2010 season, where he batted .257, hit 27 homeruns, and stole 28 bases, his offensive numbers have been on the decline. But somewhere in there, when you scrape away the strikeouts and the Mendoza Line, lies a...
