New York Yankees Midseason Grades (Position Players)

Photo: Charlie Neibergall/AP Now a little past the midway point in the season, we wanted to give our mid-season grades to the New York Yankees.

He also has a career low .670 OPS. On the plus side, though, McCann...

WATCH: Texas Rangers Leonys Martin robs Brian McCann on double catch

The Texas Rangers haven’t had a lot to cheer about, with a crazy amount of injuries and ineffective pitching.  They are having some success in New York at the expense of the Yankees, having surprisingly won game one of the series on Monday.  And playing some good defense on Tuesday, as outfielder Leonys Martin makes an outstanding catch against the wall on a seemingly-sure extra...

Yankees Earn Walk-Off Win Over Reds On Misplayed Routine Pop-Up (Video)

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good. Just ask New York Yankees catcher Brian McCann. During Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds, McCann stepped up to the plate against flame-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman. Left-handed hitters have just a .112 batting average against Chapman over the last four years. But thanks to a defensive miscue, McCann recorded a hit against...

Darkest before the dawn? In mere seconds yesterday, John Sterling bounced from inhuman despair to heavenly rapture

Contrary to news reports, the NY Yankees did not win yesterday: The Reds simply lost. In the ninth inning, the Evils were executing a classic choke moment - runner on a third, no outs, cleanup hitters up - and Mark Teixeira fanned. This prompted John Sterling to yelp, "Strike three, what else?"Yep, that's right. Two little words. Two sharpened knives. John couldn'...

Brian McCann tops buy-low options for the 2nd half

There are few things in Fantasy Baseball more difficult and more rewarding than sending the perfect trade proposal. You never want to lowball an opposing owner and abruptly end the trade discussion, however; you also don’t want to include that unnecessary extra piece when they would’ve accepted a lesser offer. Here are some players that are due for a bout of good luck after...

Do you think the Yankees will make the 2014 postseason?

The New York Yankees have 68 games, 41 at home and 27 on the road, left in the 2014 regular season. Right now, the Yankees are 47-47, five games back in the AL East compared to 3.5 games in the wild card. This leaves the Yankees in striking distance to get a postseason berth, but things have to improve. The Yankees will have to get better without ace Masahiro Tanaka for at least...

Buy Low, Sell High: Catchers

This is the first in a series of posts looking at buy low and sell high candidates at the All-Star break.  It’s based on looking at the difference in fantasy value from the first half of the season and projected fantasy value for the second half (using the Steamer projections published at FanGraphs).  The idea here is that some fantasy owners in your league might be willing to...

Braves coach: Brian McCann will ‘never be comfortable’ in New York

Photo: AP The New York Yankees, as they usually do, made a splash in free agency this offseason, and one of those acquisitions was former Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann. McCann, who was a seven-time all-star with the Braves, has had a rough start in the Yankee pinstripes, batting an underwhelming .230. It is safe to say that is not the production the Yankees were expecting when...

Brian McCann’s Former Coach: Catcher Will ‘Never Be Comfortable’ In New York

Brian McCann was born in Georgia and grew up there. He was then drafted by the Atlanta Braves and became an All-Star catcher for his hometown club. He gave that up his past winter, however, to join the New York Yankees, and that’s been a regrettable decision so far. That is, of course, if you discount the $85 million contract he signed with the Bronx Bombers. McCann’s salary...
