Bullpen combines for 13 scoreless innings, Thunder beat Akron in 18

TRENTON – Coming off a 7-game road-trip in which the Thunder lost 5 games, including a 3-game sweep against New Hampshire, Trenton was hungry for a win to get back on track and start off the homestand with the right foot. In a quite tight and very long game, the Trenton Thunder were able to pull off a highly-needed win against the Akron RubberDucks in extra innings. After being...

Shhh. Don't tell anybody, but it's a rebuilding year

The most important Yankee game last night was washed out. It would have been played in Trenton, but a wet field and sloppy conditions created too much risk. (Also, there might have been some lane closings ordered by the governor; not sure about that...)The future of the Yankees - if there is any - sits in Trenton.There, the elongated giant, Aaron Judge, will patrol RF - a few long...

Did Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig prank the press with ‘A Deadly Adoption’?

April 1 has to be the worst day for reporters and bloggers. If not in politics and sports, then certainly on the pop culture and entertainment beats. Which stories are real? Which are April Fool’s Day jokes? Most of the time, it’s easy to tell what’s a goof and what isn’t. But in some cases, the pranks are good enough to make one wonder. So did Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig...

Clip and save, for when they trade him in July

Sorry. Hate to be such a pill. (I'm thinking sodium pentothal.) The Moncada thing still haunts me. But in the names of Peter O'Brien and Manny Banuelos, I REFUSE to accept another steaming load of Yankee prospect hype, ginned up by a propaganda machine that will say anything about anybody, as long as it fills space in the paper and seats in the stadium. Nope. Won't buy it. I...

Retro Week continues: Super Prospect Gary Sanchez looks forward to big development in 2014!

This hurts, especially as we rev up our hopes for the rookies - our only true salvation. If they fail, there won't be enough Martin Prados and Chris Capuanos out there to rescue to team at the trade deadline. But last February, we were licking this garbage straight from the Yankee trowel.  LAKELAND, Fla. -- Gary Sanchez, the Yankees' top prospect, was at his home in the Dominican...

Knee deep in no-names: Kiley McDaniel rates the Yankees as the 10th best farm system in baseball

All the way to Antonio Arias and Bryan Emery - (an outfielder we signed this month for a half-a-million frickin' dollars, even though his trainer refused to let him be seen in big games - good luck figuring that out!) - the ex-scout chronicles the long list of names to watch next summer in minor league box scores.

Five MLB trades that need to happen

The MLB hot stove is heating up as general managers from every team around the league meet to pretty much get the offseason going. It’s always fun to take a look at moves that might be made and trades that could be conducted. And while it’s nearly impossible to predict trades in any sport, it’s still a fun exercise for both fans and writers alike. That’s what we plan on...

Yankees Rumors: New York could possibly trade catchers

One of the few positions at which the New York Yankees have substantial depth is behind the plate. Behind starting catcher Brian McCann, the Yankees have a plethora of catchers, most notably Francisco Cervelli. They also have Gary Sanchez, whom MLB.com rates as their #2 overall prospect. Could the Yankees move one or more of these catchers to bring more offense in return? Earlier...

Joel Sherman's uncanny predictions last March for the 2014 Yankees

Damn, with the exception of A-Rod doning tights, he got it right. Sherman said he couldn't decide whether the Yankees were a first or fourth place team, because the starting pitchers had huge upside and deep, dark downsides. Then he added this...Don’t be surprised if … (Yankees edition)• After all the talk that Yankee Stadium is perfect for his power stroke, Brian McCann...

The Descent Begins In Earnest. Do Not Read This. It Is long, Insightful and Painful.

Duque says, "we dodged a bullet," when Cliff Lee turned up lame.  I disagree.  We tried to make that deal with the same enthusiasm and foresight the Yankees exhibited in using a top draft pick on Andy Brackman, knowing he was headed for career ending surgery.  We tried to sign Cliff Lee utilizing the same planning and keen insight it took Brian Cashman to use a top draft pick...

Ten leftover perplexities about the Yankees following yesterday's trade front explosions

1. I figured we'd trade a catcher. (Technically, you could say we did: But Pete O'Brien hadn't been catching for a while.) We still have 1. McCann, 2. Cervelli, 3. Murphy, 4. Romine (who's salvaging his season at Scranton) and 5. Gary Sanchez, the eternal second coming of Jesus. If the Yankees were a Dr. Seuss book, they would be titled, "The 100 Catchers of Bartholomew Cubbins....

BronxPinstripes’ Midseason Top 15 Prospects

With injuries and under-performance running rampant through the Yankees farm system, this list is quite a shakeup from past prospect reports. Once thought to be top-5 prospects, the stars of Mason Williams and Slade Heathcott have fallen significantly. Another former top prospect, Rafael DePaula, is now in San Diego after being moved for Chase Headley. However, it’s not all bad...

It's time to ponder the benefits of a full-scale collapse

On yesterday's River Ave cluster-grope, Mike Axisa opined that, between now and the July 31 trade deadline, the Evil Emp would be best served with a long, long streak - of either wins or loses. Thus, management can discern whether the 2014 Yankees should be buyers or sellers.Quickly, the expert panel of veteran baseball scouts screamed down any notion of the Yankees as sellers. The...

April May, but June Ju-LIES... The Yanks are four games behind last year's pace

Those who forget the past...Maybe we should start calling them "the Even Empire," as in "breaking even." They win a game, then they torture one.Exiting the month of May - which traditionally was cruel to Yankee powerhouses of the early 2000s - here is what I know:1. The AL East is a putrid cesspool of antique collections of mediocrity - plus a young one, Tampa Bay. Unless the Blue...

New York Yankees: Four prospects that can make an impact this year

Lets be honest, we all know that the New York Yankees are struggling this season. Injuries and suspensions to key players have hurt the team badly. In the past few games, the Yankees have been starting young pitchers such as Masahiro Tanaka and Chase Whitely, who have shown potential, especially Whitely who helped to notch a win in the second game against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday...

As we ponder the trade market's lush garden of pitching, let us also think about the pound of flesh we will surrender

Lately, the Yankiverse seems to have settled on two bedrock conclusions:1. The 2014 team, as currently structured, couldn't bring home herpes from a trip to Buffalo.2. To fulfill the team's prime objective - having anyone watching YES in August - Brian Cashman must trade for a starting pitcher.It's pointless to speculate the identify of that lucky fellow.
