New York’s Battle: Mets Vs. Yankees: Position By Position

The question going into the 2015 season around New York is which team is going to have the better season. Is it the young Mets who every year seem to have higher expectations but fail to reach them? Or is it the old Yankees who everyone is doubting because of their track record of injuries. So, let’s go position by position to see which team will run New York this summer. Catcher...

Clip and save: Brian McCann says he plans to hit to the opposite field this year

How Yankees tried to beat the over-shift last year.For the record: The disease of the 2014 Yankees was not pitching, fielding or charging too low for tickets. The Bronx Bombers simply had nobody who knew how to drive in a run. The team RBI leader was Brian McCann. He had 75.That's no misprint. The Yankee team leader had 75 - seventyfukkinfive - RBIs.In other words, we created a new...

2015 Fantasy Baseball: Catchers with Multiple Position Eligibility

Targeting players that carry multiple position eligibility in your fantasy baseball draft will provide your fake team with flexibility throughout the season. These players are typically helpful in formats that feature two catchers, a corner or middle infield slot and even with relief and starting pitchers. It’s important to note that different sites use different formulas to determine...

2015 Fantasy Baseball Catchers Rankings

Catchers are like the TE of fantasy baseball. They have the elites, who will require a draft pick probably higher than their actual value, but separates your from the rest of the pack.  Last season Carlos Santana and Jonathan Lucroy were the only backstops to score 600+ fantasy points, according to our scoring system. Buster Posey put up 583.  Eight catchers had between 400...

New York Yankees from 2014 to 2015: Position by Position

Finishing 2014 with an 84-78 record meant a distant second place in the American League East for the Yankees. It also meant four games back from playing in a one game playoff which produced a team who would finish two runs from a World Series title. While four games is surely not a death sentence, New York would have to pass a minimum of three teams this season to make it happen...

Player Profile #176: Brian McCann | C/1B | NYY

Brian McCann is a sellout — for power, that is. Since McCann broke into the league in 2005, he’s caught 9,709.1 innings. That’s the third-most in the league over that span behind Yadier Molina (10,533) and A.J. Pierzynski (10,437). But unlike Molina, McCann’s offense hasn’t gotten better with age. In his early years (2005-2008) McCann regularly had 11-13% strikeout rates...

Can’t Buy Me Championships

It’s been a long-running thought in sports—particularly baseball—that the team with the most money always wins it all. While we know that’s not entirely true, those that spend freely and carelessly on talented players should be able to compete on a yearly basis. However, this wasn’t the case for the New York Yankees in 2014. Despite committing hundreds of millions of...

Will the Yankees see light at the end of the tunnel?

The last two years were certainly a struggle for the New York Yankees. In 2013, the Bronx Bombers finished with a record of 85-77, placing them tied for third place in the American League East. This past year, the Yanks finished  84-78, placing them second place in the east. From the past two years, we see that the Yankees have had decent records but it wasn’t enough to make the...

Yankees Eliminated: More Painful This Year Than Last Year

When the 2014 Yankees season began, not making the playoffs for the second straight year was the furthest thing from my mind. After all, this was a team that had won 85 games in 2013 with journeymen like Jayson Nix and farmhands like Zoilo Almonte.  Now, with such additions as Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury, it seemed a shoe-in that they would surpass that mark and return to...

Four Requests for Girardi With Yankees Tragic Number Down To One

With a “tragic number” of one game, the Yankees are in a bad situation. They would need the miracle of miracles to make the playoffs at this point. The New York Yankees will soon be in a position they haven’t been in for almost 20 years: missing the post-season in back to back years.Between that fact and having to say goodbye to Derek Jeter (at Fenway Park no less), it is going...

While McCann Deserves A Pass, Other Yankees Derserve Anything But

McCann went 2-3 with three RBIs, including a home run.  Seeing performances like this from him so late in the season is beyond frustrating.In spite of the frustration, I am willing to say this: We...

A sad old team, going nowhere, waiting to die

Last night, the rusted Yankee pipe-wrench known as Brian McCann homered in the ninth inning, cutting the Redsocks' lead to five. As he bulldogged around the bases, McCann looked embarrassed, like the dad who comes home puking drunk at 1 a.m., and wakes his kids to give them candy bars. Alfonso used to call them "A-Rod homers" - blast that pad personal numbers, but have no effect...
