Rough day for Yankees leads to ramped up trade speculation

The New York Yankees have had better days than they endured Thursday. Names the Yankees were interested in on the trade market came off, Michael Pineda was placed on the disabled list with a forearm strain and they lost their game in walk-off fashion.It looks as though the Yankees will use this final non-waiver trading day to grab a top-flight reliever, having been linked to both...

For #Yankees, Best Deal at Deadline May Be Rotation Shuffle, by @nyypete

Back in 1964, June 15th was the trade deadline. The Yankees were in the middle of a pennant race with Chicago and Baltimore much of that season. They had three reliable starters in their rotation in Whitey Ford, Al Downing and Jim Bouton. Three other pitchers, who were  in and out of  the rotation that year, Rollie Sheldon, Ralph Terry and Stan Williams, struggled with injuries...

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...

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...

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...

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. They stop paying attention to news blotters of daily performances, minor league call-ups, and extended slumps or hot streaks. 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:...

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...

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...

The trades are coming, and the Yankees have plenty of chips. But will they address the dead wood?

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. Starter Ron Guidry, the ace of their staff,  volunteered to take over  the Goose's role as closer. The Yankees took Guidry up on his offer, but only for two relief appearances in early May, one that resulted...

Yankees' Girardi Plays It Safe with Warren But Takes Risk With Health of Bullpen

Questioning Joe Girardi is not exactly high on my list of things to do as I tend to give the Yankees manager the benefit of the doubt. After all, 750 wins doesn’t happen without some skill, even if it’s the skill of knowing when you don’t have to meddle.Still, after he pulled Adam Warren in Tuesday night’s game after 6.1 IP and only 88 pitches, I’ll admit I raised an eyebrow...

A Conversation with Adam Warren

Adam Warren is quietly emerging as a reliable member of the Yankees’ rotation. The 27-year-old right-hander hasn’t been spectacular, but he’s pitched well enough for his team to have won four of his five starts. He was credited with two of those wins, and allowed just one earned run in his lone loss. Warren worked […]
