Game 155: Post-Clinch

The Yankees have completed step one of their ultimate goal this season. They want to win the World Series, and yesterday’s win clinched a postseason spot. The next goal: secure homefield advantage in the Wild Card Game. The goal after that: win the division. That one probably won’t happen, but the magic number to clinch a Wild Card Game at Yankee Stadium is only two. That should...

Looking Ahead to the 2018 Roster

First of all, let’s take a moment to congratulate the Yankees on securing a playoff spot in 2017. This team was expected to maybe compete for the second wild card spot if everything broke their way, and now they’re on track to win 90 games. That’s fantastic. Much to what I’m sure is the chagrin of fans of other teams and organizations, the Yankees’ rebuild lasted about...

Whatever happens next, Yankees deserve this moment

TORONTO — They will refocus pretty quickly, these 2017 Yankees. They will say they have not yet surrendered on the pipe dream that is winning the AL East, will talk about what a dangerous wild-card team they could be at the least with all the power in their lineup and bullpen. Let’s table that for...

WATCH: Poor Todd Frazier falls for perfectly-executed hidden ball trick

Todd Frazier is a good guy, so it’s hard not to feel bad for him after watching what happened during Friday’s game against the Blue Jays. It happened when Frazier was on second base, and Jays infielder Ryan Goins made it look like he threw the ball back to the pitcher, as players routinely do. The thing is that he didn’t, and instead calmly tucked the ball inside his glove...

Jacoby Ellsbury: Misfit of the Fly Ball Revolution

Since September 1st, Jacoby Ellsbury has the fifth-highest OPS in Major League Baseball. Upon reading this, one could certainly be forgiven for thinking I had stumbled across a page listing statistics from 2011 and am here regurgitating an outdated factoid. However, I have done extensive research (made sure I am referencing a page that says 2017 at the top) and found that the Yankees’...

Luis Severino Is the AL’s Best Other Pitcher

For a while, it seemed like Chris Sale was going to be an American League Cy Young Award shoo-in. Now, while Sale hasn’t exactly gotten much worse, the favorite might be Corey Kluber, who basically hasn’t allowed a run since coming off the disabled list three and a half months ago. If the winner isn’t Kluber, it’ll be Sale. If the winner isn’t Sale, it’ll be Kluber. I...

WATCH: Chase Headley gets drilled in groin by pitch

Yankees infielder Chase Headley took one for the team during Tuesday night’s game against the Twins. Headley came to the plate in the fifth inning of the game, and Dillon Gee greeted him with an 87-mph pitch right to the groin. Ouch. To his credit, Headley took it like a champ — shaking it off and making his way to first base. And it wasn’t for naught, though, as he did manage...

No One Will Want to Face These Yankees

You’re probably aware that the torrid Cleveland Indians have taken over the top run-differential spot in baseball and the No. 1 playoff seed in the AL. You’re probably also aware that the Dodgers still hold the best record in baseball despite looking beyond terrible in September. But did you know the Dodgers no longer hold the No. 2 run-differential spot in the sport? It’s...

New York Yankees: Four players who have fallen under the radar in 2017

It is 2017 and everyone is aware of the monster season Aaron Judge has had for the New York Yankees. However, he has not been the only one to carry the load. The fact of the matter is that the Bronx Bombers are full of players who have been making contributions all season long and more recently down the stretch.

New York Yankees: Will Aaron Judge become a record breaker?

In 1987, Mark McGwire set a precedent for the MLB as a rookie with the Oakland Athletics.  Now 30 years later, the most number of home runs hit by a rookie could have a new face in the New York Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge.  Currently as of Sept. 15, Judge has knocked the ball out of the park 43 times in his rookie season.  The big man looks to continue this trek and break...

This is the Sonny Gray the Yankees traded for

Mid-season trades can be tricky devils. There is limited time for a player to accumulate value for his new team, often leaving the narrative surrounding the trade up to either early performance for the new squad, or, more dangerously, playoff performance. Neither assessment is ideal, since anything can happen in a short amount of time, making the whole situation even more unfair...

MLB does right in donating Boston Red Sox fine to hurricane relief

When the Boston Red Sox were accused of using an apple watch to steal signs from their opponents, the MLB went into an uproar. Talking heads on radio, television, and online called for the MLB to bring the hammer of justice down on the Sox, with some even calling for vacating wins and suspending the first-place team from making the playoffs. In the end, the MLB did dish out their...
