Has Chris Capuano thrown his last pitch for Yankees?

The New York Yankees felt they needed veteran depth for the rotation during the offseason and signed Chris Capuano to a one-year, $5 million contract to fit the role. Capuano supplied the Yankees with some decent innings in 2014, but at the time of the signing I felt this was an unnecessary deal. After putting up a 6.97 ERA this season, maybe it’s time the Yankees felt the same...

New York Yankees to rest Masahiro Tanaka, bullpen game possible

The New York Yankees are preparing to announce a sixth starter for Tuesday’s opener against the Texas Rangers, as they continue to be extra careful with Masahiro Tanaka. The move allows Tanaka to get extra rest so that he can keep his right arm in good shape. The starter will most likely come from the Yankees bullpen, however, there is a chance they make a move for a pitcher before...

The Crappy Division Theory

I know I'm going to regret this. Anytime I put anything up that's critical of some Yankee mediocrity, they go on a tear and hit twelve grand slams in three games or pitch back-to-back no-hitters. So I realize I'm playing with powerful JuJu here (is that the Cambridge dictionary spelling?), or reverse JuJu, or simply pissing off some nutjob with a John Sterling voodoo doll who's going...

New York Yankees trade rumors: should they add another starter?

Cole Hamels The New York Yankees have plenty of pitching. Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, CC Sabathia, Nathan Eovaldi and Ivan Nova comprise the team’s starting rotation, while Adam Warren, currently exiled to the bullpen, is also a viable option. All of those players are capable of throwing quality innings, but fans are right to have some concerns. Lately, Sabathia can’t seem...

Extra Inning Win Tops Busy Day For A-Rod and The Yankees

The night ended with Brian McCann's 3-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the 12th inning, giving the Yankees a 7-5 win over the Tampa Bay Rays, and putting them in sole possession of 1st place in the AL East. Looking further back, we saw Adam Warren make his first appearance of the year out of the bullpen.  We learned that CC Sabathia's next start would be pushed back to Wednesday...

Yankees send Adam Warren to the Bullpen

On June 29th, the New York Yankees announced that they were sending right-hander Adam Warren to he bullpen, thus shortening their rotation back to the traditional five-man rotation. Warren, who might not have been this best in the rotation, has been the most constant starter for the Yankees this season. Warren has already set career highs in wins and innings pitched this year in...

New York Yankees: why they were right in sending Adam Warren to the bullpen

When New York Yankees starter Ivan Nova made his successful return from Tommy John surgery last week, the team was faced with a dilemma regarding their starting rotation. Joe Girardi and company had to make a decision: with six healthy starters now on the roster, one of Nova, Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda, CC Sabathia, Nathan Eovaldi or Adam Warren had to convert to a bullpen...

New York Yankees should have kept Adam Warren in their rotation

Recently, the New York Yankees announced that Adam Warren would not be making his next start and would be moved to the bullpen. One of the main reasons was that he was the best fit for the bullpen. That may be the case, but him being out of the starting rotation will make it weaker. A lot of people liked to say the Yankees had a weak second half of the rotation, which they somewhat...

Yankees move Warren to bullpen, Eovaldi to start Wednesday

In a move that both makes you scratch your head and nod in approval, the New York Yankees have sent Adam Warren to the bullpen.Warren has been one, if not the, Yankees' best starter this season, owning a 5-5 record with a 3.59 ERA in 82.2 innings pitched. His ERA is the lowest amongst the starting rotation.However, the choice was between keeping CC Sabathia or Warren in the rotation...

The Adam Warren story: Unless you have a big, bloated contract or faerie godfather at the top, you'll never be good enough

Now and then, some poor sap rises up from the Yankees muck farms with an "X" scrawled onto his back, signifying where the top brass intends to put the ice pick. From our cheap seats, we fans never get to know what the guy did wrong: Did he not flush the toilet, or use the right fork for lobster? Whatever the reason, the Yankees never value him.Whatever he does, it's never enough...

3 Waiver Wire Adds, Week 13: Odor Passes the Smell Test

This point in the baseball season, especially the fantasy baseball season, is when people get lazy.

Whereas a hot or cold two week start in April would be all the talk of anyone associated with fantasy baseball, it hardly gets noticed in late June. This, my...

Loss Of Warren Weakens A Yankees Rotation Already Weakend By Sabathia

Before each Yankee series begins, I post the pitching match-ups on the blog's Facebook page. I posted them yesterday evening with the comment, "Definitely not liking the fact that CC Sabathia pitches the opener." Sabathia did nothing to take away my fears, as he pitched poorly again, leading to the Yankees 4-1 loss to the Angels.Then I wake up this morning to even more bad news:...

Odd man out: New York Yankees to send Adam Warren to bullpen

With the return of pitcher Ivan Nova, the New York Yankees knew they had a difficult decision to make. Which starter would be the odd man out and get sent to the bullpen? That answer came early Tuesday morning in the form of right-hander Adam Warren, as first reported by the New York Daily News. After the Yankees 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Monday night, Warren...

Astros School Yankees With Youth Movement

Just two takeaways from Thursday's Yankees showing in Houston, a 4-0 loss:1. Adam Warren is the Yankees' third best starting pitcher (out of six).Despite the loss and a decent but not great start, Warren may be the odd man out. Even though he has pitched better than everyone not named Tanaka and Pineda, Warren may be a victim of the 2015 Yankees version of the  "Joba Rules" in...

Recently, fellow writer Dan Federico wrote an article on viable pitching options for the New York Yankees to trade for. However, this would be the typical thing for the Yankees to do when they may just need to trust the pitchers that they currently have. People are hitting the panic button with the Yankees because their pitching rotation has struggled as of late. But, the Yankees...

Homegrown Adam Warren Likely Headed To Yankees Pen Despite Consistency

Masahiro Tanaka pitched a stinker on Sunday afternoon when he was lit up for 10 hits and 5 ERs in just 5.0 IP.  With that, the award for best pitching performance by a Yankees pitcher goes to: Adam Warren. He hasn't been as purely dominant as Michel Pineda or Nathan Eovaldi, but he has done something neither of them could do:  In his last start (on Friday against Detroit) he gave...

New York Yankees trade rumors: starting pitching edition

The Yankees have been scouting Mike Leake of the Cincinnati Reds. The New York Yankees are 11-5 so far in June and currently find themselves one game back of the Tampa Bay Rays for first place in the AL East. Despite the fact that the Yankees have sat atop the AL East for the majority of the season, their starting pitching has been shaky throughout. Their recent success and the...

Friday, the Yankees and Tigers were out collecting stool samples on Reds starter Johnny Cueto. He's 29, throws hard, has both a big beard and big contract, and let's face it: These days, Cincy is deader than a morgue full of Robert Mapplethorpes.Clearly, it's Cashman's job to scout every feral cat that might stray onto the market next month, but starters - right now anyway - don...

Pitching Changes On The Horizon For The Yankees

Way back in April 1979, the Yankees lost future Hall of Fame closer Goose Gossage to a thumb injury, the result of a locker room altercation with backup catcher Cliff Johnson.

The Yankees took Guidry up on his offer, but only for two relief appearances in early May, one that resulted...
