It's Unlimited Roster Day in the Yankiverse, meaning Ackley, Refsnyder, Pirela, Ryan and Drew is now our five-man 2B rotation

Wouldn't you know it? Just as the cavalry arrives, shirts off and guns blazing - when we suddenly have second basemen than starting pitchers, old Stephen Drew gets hot and raises his average to a Ruthian .203! Yes, Stephen Drew, past two oh two, HOW DO YOU DO!For the home stretch, we can light our cigars with second basemen. The question: Which will start in the One Game Bud Selig...

Seattle Mariners: Looking back on bold predictions

A little over a week before Opening Day, I made a few bold predictions on the 2015 Seattle Mariners season. It’s currently late August, and more than enough time has elapsed for me to look back on how I did with those three claims. Unfortunately, it’s tough to tell which of the three have turned out to be the most wrong. “1. Dustin Ackley ends up with a higher batting average...

What we think about, when we think about Dustin Ackley

One of these days, Dustin Ackley - the 1B-OF who came over in Cashman's trade deadline deal-making ibogaine-delirium, and who was supposed to replace Garrett Jones, "the glove of stones," but who suddenly reported back problems, which the honest-as-the-day-is-long Seattle Mariners brain trust knew ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about, when they dealt his ass like a basket of peach pits...

Yankees: Why Dustin Ackley?

The New York Yankees seemed poised to make a deal Friday, the final day of the non-waiver trading period. The Yanks were linked to relievers Craig Kimbrel and Aroldis Chapman for parts of the day, hoping to make a splash by building a superpower bullpen. It wasn’t meant to be and the Yankees stayed pat on deadline day.The Yankees were not entirely quiet, making one deal this week...

Yankees get Dustin Ackley from Mariners for two minor leaguers

The Seattle Mariners didn’t figure to make too much noise before Friday’s trade deadline. But the team did finally cut loose a top draft pick that just never developed into the star he was projected to be. Dustin Ackley was traded to the New York Yankees on Thursday in exchange for two minor leaguers. The 27-year-old was Seattle’s No. 1 draft pick (selected second overall)...

New York Yankees acquire Dustin Ackley from the Seattle Mariners

It wasn’t too long ago that the New York Yankees were the American League East team pulling off major mid-season trades to best position itself for the stretch run. Working under a different philosophy, New York has seen the division-rival Toronto Blue Jays add both Troy Tulowitzki and David Price while remaining quiet itself. Until now. The Yankees made a semi-minor deal to acquire...

Yankees finally get Dustin Ackley

The Yankees had been chasing Dustin Ackley for a while. I don’t know exactly how long the pursuit had gone on, but I remember rumors around the 2013 winter meetings, and they’ve popped up from time to time since. Somewhere, in the back of his mind, Brian Cashman maintained his interest in Ackley, and now […]

Mariners Rumors: Dustin Ackley drawing interest

The Seattle Mariners have surprised many people this season. Even after signing Robinson Cano to an extravagant deal, not many people predicted Seattle to be a contender in the supposedly very strong AL West division, which included powerhouses in the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers, and a sleeper in the Los Angeles Angels. The Mariners are 52-45 and are currently in place to...

Seattle Mariners’ offense struggles again

The Seattle Mariners got off to a sizzling start, owning first place in the A.L. West after a win over Oakland last Friday.  But, what a difference a week makes.  Seattle fell to under .500 for the first time this season after dropping three out of four games to the Texas Rangers.  With all the questions about starting pitching and the murderous early season schedule, this is...
