Castro's hot bat a direct boost for Yankees

The Yankees have made their formula for success in 2016 clear: Get the starter through six innings with a lead, then give the game over to the bullpen. But it might be time to make a slight amendment to the formula. That strategy is well and good, but there might be a shortcut. Just get Starlin Castro a hit.

Game 92 Recap: Garnering a win

Yankees 3, Giants 2 The New York Yankees saw their win streak snap on Thursday before welcoming the San Francisco Giants to town on Friday. With a three-game set looming and tasked with facing the two aces in the Giants’ rotation – Madison Bumgarner and Johnny Cueto to be clear – the forecast for the Yankees was far from favorable.

Game 95 Recap: Winning Streak Over

While a small winning streak on a home stand following the All Star Break wasn’t going to change the direction of the Yankees’ season, it was a nice recess from the borderline-.500 slog of the first half. Unfortunately, Thursday’s 4-1 loss to the Orioles broke the four game run of success, also bringing the Yankees back to just one game over .500. According to the box score...

Starlin Castro turns double play while blowing bubble with his gum

With the New York Yankees looking to hold on to a lead in the ninth inning, Starlin Castro turned a clutch double play to help bring the Yankees closer to a win in Detroit.

Starlin Castro in Just a Few Pictures

Starlin Castro has spent a lot of his career being frustrating, and he’s spent a good chunk of it being disappointing, but a player can’t be either of those things unless he has a certain amount of ability. Fans have to like you before they can later be frustrated by you, and so Castro’s time in Chicago was a bit of a roller-coaster. His time in New York will also have its...

Starlin Castro hits another home run, continues positively torrid start

Starlin Blastro. Darlin’ Castro. Gnarlin’ Nastro. Whatever you want to call this guy, he’s absolutely on fire. Castro left the yard for the second time this season in the fourth inning of Thursday’s game to help the Yankees draw within one run of the Astros at the time. He went after an 86 mph cutter from Mike Fiers on 3-1, and hit it 390 feet according to Statcast....

Starlin Castro shows us something new

As spring training marches on and we get anxious for regular-season baseball, the search for meaning in meaningless games reaches a fever pitch. Most lineups and rotations around baseball are more or less set. The positional battles still underway are largely of the inconsequential variety, and making a baseball team on Opening Day is overrated in an 162-game campaign. What is more...

Yankees Get Younger with Starlin Castro, Slightly Better

Brian Cashman wants the Yankees to get younger. Did you know that Starlin Castro is only 25 years old? Somewhat lost in the shuffle of last night’s winter meetings madness was the trade that sent Castro to the Yankees in exchange for right-hander Adam Warren and utility man Brendan Ryan, mere minutes after Castro had been displaced in Chicago by the Cubs’ signing of Ben Zobrist...

Trade Breakdown: Starlin Castro To The Yankees

Starlin Castro has been on my personal radar since November of last year.  At that time I thought of him as a possible heir to The Captain, but since the Cubs moved him over to 2B this past season, I have worn my heart on my sleeve for Rob Refsnyder.Of course, I need to stop doing that, because Refsnyder's bags are all but packed right now, and Castro will form what will likely...
