When Garrett Jones and Carlos Beltran play OF, the 2015 Yankees pay the price for their original sin: Wanting to screw A-Rod

In our brief, recent sight-seeing excursion to the Confederacy, the damned Yankees gave the world two spectacular OF blunders, each worthy of a season ending low-light reel.Saturday night, Carlos Beltran pivoted around neatly to watch a fly ball land over his head and bounce against the wall - a sense of daring-do that would have made Bobby "The Wallflower" Abreu look like Minnie...

MLB Daily Fantasy Robopick: Carlos Beltran

Over the course of the 2015 fantasy baseball season, I’ve been working with Matthew Boland, a PhD student in Finance, on a daily fantasy sports strategy. With a little bit of economic theory, and a degree of baseball intuition we’ve come up with a formula that helps us put together winning daily fantasy baseball lineups. We’re keeping the full lineups to ourselves, but, will...

New York Yankees: trade options, part two

Back on June 1, I wrote an article on Outside Pitch based on two different trade scenarios to improve the New York Yankees roster. In the two weeks that passed, the situation remains the same; the American League East is wide open, and each of the five teams have a chance to emerge as the division winner come seasons end. While the Bronx Bombers continue to stay in the conversation...

Morning Grind: ASG Voting Shows Mets’ Lack of Star Power

The Mets are hanging tough with the Nationals at the top of the division after two months of play. But unlike the last Mets team to win the NL East (2006), this year’s team doesn’t feature elite position players anywhere on the diamond. It’s not a coincidence that, while the ’06 Mets accounted for half of the National League’s starting lineup in that year’s All-Star...

Let's acknowledge last night's great Cashmanic victory over Oakland

Kudos go out to Brian Cashman for his tireless work in last night's big Yankee win* over the A's.  He laid the groundwork two winters ago, signing Carlos Beltran to a three-year deal. The Belt Man, who is slowly salvaging his season, won last night's game with a clutch two-run HR, his fourth of the year. Carlos is now batting .246, up about 80 points over a month ago. Watch out...

Can Carlos Beltran's Yankee soul be saved?

In the last two years, underachieving Yankee stars have been blessed by the presence of Carlos Beltran, one of the great whipping mules in NYC history. From the moment he signed, Yankee fans wondered what form of brain oatmeal rationalized returning Beltran to a town where he was most famous for watching a called strike three, killing the Mets' last honest chance at anything...

The Yankees' big problem is not pitching, hitting or fielding. It is a dark, soul-crushing boredom

Last night, I had a reason to watch the Yankees. His name was Slade Heathcott.First time he came up, we were already down 7-0. I figured the game was over. We don't score eight runs in a weekend, much less one night. Still, I dropped what I was doing and rushed the TV. And he didn't let me down: He laced a drive to left-center, ran like a banshee, slid headfirst for a double. It...

Missing Ellsbury's Effort & Cursing Beltran's Lack Therof

A 2-7 road trip. As Joe Girardi would say, "It's not what you want." Last night was really frustrating, thanks, in part, to one Carlos Beltran.If he had made any sort of an effort to catch that pop fly in the bottom of the seventh, the Yankees might have gone on to get out of the inning without (what turned out to be) the winning run scoring. He didn't, and the Yankees lost the last...

Perfect timing? MIred in a slump, Slade Heathcott gets called up to the Yankees

For weeks, I secretly hoped Carlos Beltran would tweak a love handle and go on the DL. It wasn't that wished ill on Beltran - he is a nice man - but I just lost hope for him. I now leave the room when he comes to bat. (I've tried everything; nothing works.) In my fantasy Yankee world, Slade Heathcott would rise from Scranton like Linus's Great Pumpkin, take over RF and play there...

3 Waiver Wire Adds, Week 7

The last time I wrote this post I touted two Giants, Tim Lincecum and Brandon Crawford. Since then Lincecum pitched a gem in his first start out, and an uneven appearance against the Reds with way too many walks. I’m buying into Lincecum, and I think this is the beginning of a second carrer for him as a different kind of pitcher. As for Crawford, he’s been tearing the cover off...

Apparently, the Yankees will wait to fall out of first before making any moves

Here's today's Amazing True Fun Fan Fact:The Yankees yesterday were shutout for the first time all year!Yep. That was our first full-game whiff. It's hard to imagine that a team whose batting averages - after the first three hitters - are .248, .237, .234, .236, .177, and .204 - had not been shutout until yesterday. That's because several of our one-run games - like Thursday night...

Not So Fast! Tanks Not Empty Yet For Sabathia, Beltran

Last night's 11-5 win over the Rays gave the Yankees a 21-12 record, the best in the American League.  They accomplished the feat thanks to contributions from everyone who played, including two of the most unlikely, CC Sabathia and Carlos Beltran.Sabathia earned his first win of the season, putting together a very solid line: 7IP, 6H, 4R, 3ER, 2BB, 9K, 2HR.

Sunday, Tanaka was resting, Chris Capuano and Ivan Nova were healing, and even Carlos Beltran was HR-trotting around the bases.

John Sterling says the Yankees will give Carlos Beltran another month

Last year, when John Sterling unveiled his Carlos Beltran homer-hurrah, the Yankiverse went WTF? The Master cried, "UN CORREAZO!" which, Google-translated means... um... somerthing. I forgot. It no longer matters.That's what happens when it's mid-May, and you haven't hit one HR.(Note: John later added "BELTRAN BELTS ONE!," because these days, not only does every Yankee get a...

On A Day Of Firsts, Yankees Take Sole Possession of First

For the first time this season the New York Yankees are in sole possession of first place in the American League East.  Yes, I know it's only April 28th, but for a team that many expected to live near the bottom of the division, it's big news--sort of.  It wasn't the only first that occurred yesterday. Consider the others: Before the game Mark Teixeira was named American League...

How about that Chris Young? The Yankees fourth outfielder went 3-for-3 with a HR and two walks on Tuesday evening, and played solid defense in RF in place of Carlos Beltran.

He was instrumental in the Yankees evening the series with Detroit at one game apiece, and was a solid backup...

Carlos Beltran Heading to the Finish Line

Performances are magnified in October and April. Everyone watches the playoffs with greater focus, and in April everyone is starved for baseball leading to massive consumption and potential over-analysis. Carlos Beltran has had little difficulty delivering in October, with 16 home runs and a .333/.445/.683 line in 219 postseason plate appearances, but this April, coming […]
