In MLB's Ranking of Top 100 Prospects, the Yankees are, again, looking like a Wild Card

Imagine a FOX Sports Game Break, the glitzy graphics exploding, and then beloved announcer Al Forehead says, "Yanks at Boston, score after three, Yankees 3."

Are the Yankees approaching a rebuild?

Yankee fans are accustomed to rooting for a contending team.  Although they haven’t made the playoffs in two out of the last three years, and lost in the wild-card game last season, there hasn’t been a shred of doubt that the front office will attempt to assemble a contender in 2016.  While some skepticism is certainly warranted with the current composition of the roster...

Eight points on the Chapman deal, (one for each bullet he fired into the garage:) Is it a bold strategic plan, or a sign of desperation?

1. Considering the trade prices recently paid for top closers, the Yankees received the "Walmart Wife-Beater Discount." I'm sure you've been wondering what the "Walmart Wife-Beater Discount" is in modern professional sports. My best calculation: It equals at least one blue-chip prospect - an Aaron Judge or Gary Sanchez - which the Yankees did not give up. That's coupon shopping!2...

Prospects That Could Make An Impact in 2016

The Yankees have started to make an attempt to get younger. Last year, they traded for Nathan Eovaldi and Didi Gregorious, gave rookies Luis Severino and Greg Bird prominent roles, and avoided trading top prospects. The goal of building a team that can have short term and long term success, which is what the Yankees are trying to accomplish, often starts with the use of major league...

Analysis: The Hotstove Has Been Lit

Going into the 2015 offseason, it was all but guaranteed that the Yankees would trade either John Ryan Murphy or Gary Sanchez. Along with Brian McCann and Austin Romine, the team had a surplus of catchers, and plenty of needs elsewhere. An explosive Arizona Fall League performance by Sanchez may have put him ahead of Murphy in the eyes of the Yankees organization, making Murphy the...

They freed Jose Pirela - a guy they never coveted, because all he ever did was hit at every level of the minors - for a 20-year-old RH bullpen lug nut whose name I don't remember, but it will surely be filed with the Rumbelows and Goodys of the Scrantonian...
