DELLIN BETANCES RUMORS

Wade Davis, Dellin Betances, and the 95+ MPH Cutter

The video here depicts the last pitch of Wednesday night’s game between Kansas City and Cincinnati, a contest won 4-3 by the Royals. What else the video depicts is a cutter thrown by Wade Davis at 96 mph — for a swinging strike to one of the major leagues’ most talented hitters.

New York Yankees: Bullpen keeps team out in front

Dellin Betances With an aging, injury-prone lineup and a starting rotation full of question marks, the New York Yankees weren’t expected to make too much noise in the American League East. Competing in a division that includes the defending champion Orioles, the greatly improved Blue Jays and Red Sox and the Rays, a popular sleeper pick, it’s a small miracle that the Bronx...

Dellin Betances, Dominant and Deceptive

I don’t have to be talked into writing posts about Dellin Betances. If I just supplied 10 consecutive GIFs of his fastball followed by his breaking ball, we’d probably all walk away happy (don’t worry, there will be plenty of GIFs).

Who should be the New York Yankees closer?

In 2013, the Yankees lost an iconic player who is arguably the best closer of all time. This Yankee pitcher, Mariano Rivera, currently holds the MLB record for career saves with an astonishing 652 saves.

New York Yankees: Three honorable All-Stars

Three Yankees: one veteran, two rookies will represent their team for the American League All-Star team. Selected by fans and players, Derek Jeter, Masahiro Tanaka, and Dellin Betances have officially been named 2014 All-Stars! I personally love the All-Star game. I know it doesn’t mean much, but I always like the idea of having different players at the top of their league come...

Dellin Betances is the Future of Pitcher Usage

  New York Yankees pitcher at after a Yankees – Angels game, 2011. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) In almost every game for the Yankees, there lurks a 26 year old who more closely represents Sasquatch than a bullpen pitcher.  Said pitcher, Dellin Betances, and the Yankees are revolutionizing the game with very few casual fans outside of the Yankees fan base even realizing this phenom exists...

Fantasy Baseball: Top non-closer relief pitchers

Every fantasy baseball owner knows that the most valuable relief pitcher is the closer. In 12-team and deeper leagues, typically every closing pitcher is owned. When a team makes a change to the closing role, fantasy owners turn into hawks trying to be the first to pick the new closer up. But what about relief pitchers that aren’t in the closing role? Are they still valuable in...
