Necessary Moves: Brett Gardner, New York Yankees

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective. A player can be deemed movable for any of the following reasons: production (or lack thereof), current and future...

Secure Message For Mustang; No one else is authorized to read this.

Dear Mustang,The Yankees open the subway series against the Mets on Tuesday.  Give me your starting line-up.It is the only way we can watch it.  The royals are the Yankee surrogate.Duque loves this.  Remember?Tanaka is ready to start, I think.  But CC is still at Silver Hill.  Maybe Adam Warren can give us 5 solid innings in game 2.But, I am getting way ahead of myself.

Eovaldi's injury furthered Warren's misuse, aided Yankees’ skid

When the New York Yankees lost their wins leader, Nathan Eovaldi, to a season-ending injury on Sept. 5 it was an immediate blow to the club's rotation. Moreover, it can be argued that Eovaldi's injury provoked furthered misuse of Adam Warren, which then aided in the Yankees season-ending skid.Adam WarrenPhoto credit - Keith Allison via FlickrEovaldi’s injury hurt both the rotation...

Reliability of Yankees’ bullpen could make or break playoff chances

Once upon a time, the Yankees had a bullpen that caused the opposition to quake in its boots. This bullpen was used early and often, and in the process it seems that the figurative gas tank was depleted in a bad way. Nowhere is this best encapsulated than in the form of Dellin Betances, whom Nick Ashbourne covered in detail here. Chasen Shreve also evaporated before our very eyes...

Yankees' Postseason Berth: Stuff of Nightmares Or Glimmer of Hope?

Inexplicable seems to be the word that best describes the Yankees effort during the 2015 season. Just when you think you've got something going...... And the thought just trails off, unfinished and unfulfilled. Except that the Yankees somehow made the playoffs. So there is still light at the end of the tunnel, though many believe it is the headlight of a locomotive bearing down...

Headley, A-Rod, Warren lead Yankees over White Sox 2-1

NEW YORK (AP) Chase Headley and Alex Rodriguez hit consecutive run-scoring doubles off John Danks in the sixth inning, Adam Warren combined with his bullpen on a three-hitter and the New York Yankees beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 Saturday to close in on their first postseason berth since 2012. Jose Abreu singled in a run in the first, his 97th RBI but Warren (7-7), making his third...

Two Overlooked Plays from Last Night’s Blue Jays Game

  The Blue Jays topped the Yankees 4-1 in the opener of the three game series between the American League East frontrunners at the Rogers Centre last night. The Blue Jays tagged Yankees starter Adam Warren three first inning runs, and made that stand up despite loading the bases in the 3rd and 8th innings.  David Price was his usual electric start in going 7 innings for Toronto...

Recap: Yankees 3 Rays 6

One night after an unlikely source delivered perhaps the biggest Yankees hit of the season, New York came up short against the Rays in Tampa. There was some excitement when a two-base error brought the tying run to the plate in the ninth inning with two outs, but Brett Gardner flied out to left field for the final out in the Yankees 6-3 loss. Once again New York missed out on a chance...

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...

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...

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...
