DELLIN BETANCES RUMORS

Joe Girardi is searching for his own personal Scott Proctor, and let's hope it's not Dellin Betances

Back in the day, they called it "the Bridge to Mariano," that police lineup of bullpen pugs that was constantly being trotted out by Joe Torre to throw the 7th and 8th innings - a tortuous eternity that connected Yankee starters to their closer. We could be ahead by five runs, but you dreaded what was coming.For about five years, Torre tried everyone but Rudy Giuliani in that desperate...

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). It’s special when a pitcher comes along and dominates major league hitters with just two […]

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. When he retired, the Yankees faced a tough decision as to who would be their future closer. For the 2014 season, Joe Girardi opted to go with a homegrown Yankee pitcher, David Robertson...

New York Yankees rumors: who should close?

The Yankees are still feeling the effects of the post-Rivera era, and are still trying to find their long-term closer. The latest news of David Robertson going to the White Sox means that the Yankees must decide who is going to close out their games. They have a couple of options they could go with that includes Dellin Betances and Andrew Miller, or they could choose to go into free...

(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...

Betances Continues to Dazzle

Aside from maybe Yangervis Solarte, 26-year-old right hander Dellin Betances has been the most pleasant surprise for the New York Yankees. In a time when the pitching staff is ravished by injuries Betances has stepped up and become a bright spot for the bullpen. The once coveted starter now turned reliever has been punishing batters all season with his electric 97 MPH fastball and...
