With the Marlins and...

Game 100: Can the Yankees get to four games over?

Last night the Yankees finally broke through and improved to three games over .500 for the first time this season. Tonight they’re trying to move to four games over .500, which is a bit of a conundrum for #TeamSell. Aroldis Chapman has been dealt and that’s great, but there are others on the roster who are more useful to the Yankees as trade chips than players in the second half...

Should the Yankees hold a fire sale?

As the ground still shakes from the Aroldis Chapman trade, a thought keeps entering my mind: Wow, I can’t believe how poorly I read this market. I penned an article a few weeks back, arguing that a swap of Andrew Miller for Adrian Gonzalez straight up would make sense for both teams, and boy was I wrong. Part of that was defensible; the calculus has changed since then. The...

Cashman: Chapman trade 'isn't a white flag'

The Yankees started the season knowing that they wouldn't have Aroldis Chapman's services for the first two months, and even with the closer now on his way to finish the year with the Cubs, general manager Brian Cashman wants his team to go back to that original mindset.

Scouting the Prospects in the Aroldis Chapman Deal

I first laid eyes on Gleyber Torres in 2014 at the Rookie-level Arizona League. He was just about a year removed from signing a $1.7 million bonus the year before and, along with Eloy Jimenez, was that summer’s headliner in Mesa. Torres was polished for his age but he was slight of build and his tools were relatively muted compared to some of the other players from the 2013 J2...

Game 98 Recap: The Legend of Nathan Eovaldi

The Yankees are nothing if not a contradiction of themselves. There is so much wrong with the team, yet there is also so much that is right, and then there are times where even more shines through. Nathan Eovaldi has been maddeningly inconsistent this season. He oscillates between brilliance and fiery inferno, sometimes in the course of a single game or inning. There was no oscillation...

Yankees nowhere closer to being buyers or sellers than last week

NEW YORK – The Yankees are approaching the trade deadline with the reluctance of an ordinary person selling a prized collection on eBay. They know they have to sell, but they keep finding ways to convince themselves they can hold on a little while longer. Unlike a collectible bobblehead, however, the Yankees can’t sit on their hands forever. They must decide on selling Carlos...
