The Wind Up: Season of Spring Approaches

Can you believe it? We’re less than one week away from most clubs seeing their pitchers and catchers report. We’re less than two weeks away from every major league position player reporting. What a time to be alive. Before we get there, we’ve got to discuss a few things. David Stearns made his ninth trade since taking over as Milwaukee’s General Manager; Bryce Harper could...

The Yankees: The Most Underrated Team in Baseball

In my regular Wednesday chat this week, this question popped up: Interestingly, a few days before, I’d been thinking about the narrative of the Yankees heading into 2016, and how so much of it is being driven by their lack of free agent spending this winter. It’s almost historically unprecedented for the Yankees to sit out an entire free agent class, but this winter, the team...

A Look at the New York Yankees’ Potential Starting Rotation

The New York Yankees have struggled to put together a dominant starting rotation, since their last World Series win in 2009. While they have had a few impressive starters over that span of time, Joe Girardi has not had the three or four dominant pitchers that he has needed to fill out a truly strong rotation. Going into the 2016 season, the Yankees will once again be faced with multiple...

Brian McCann 'loves' Yankees rotation, including this dark horse candidate

Mitchell, 24, made two starts in 2015 NEW YORK -- The Yankees' starting pitching rotation is basically set for 2016. It will look probably something like this: 1. Masahiro Tanaka 2. Luis Severino (or swap these two) 3. Michael Pineda 4. Nathan Eovaldi 5. CC Sabathia As long long as no one is hurt in spring training, that's probably close to how...

Michael Pineda’s Changeup Could Make Him an Ace

A key for the Yankees in 2016 will be Michael Pineda. He’s shown flashes of tantalizing upside, and could be on New York’s list of most valuable pitchers. But Pineda has yet to put it all together over a full season. You likely remember May 10, which was the date of Pineda’s monstrous 16 strikeout outing. You may also recall June 22, when Pineda gave up eight runs over 3.1...

Yankees' Michael Pineda on offseason at home, 2016, and 2 new teammates (VIDEO)

Pineda will likely be the Yanks' No. 3 starter in 2016 Pitchers and catchers have under a month (Feb. 18) until they report to Yankees spring training in Tampa, Fla., and right-hander Michael Pineda says he's ready.

Michael Pineda and Nathan Eovaldi are not actually the same person

When you are building a starting rotation it is usually wise to fill it with five different human beings. That’s par for the course and teams don’t tend to deviate from it. Four-man rotations can overburden arms, and cloning is far too expensive to be a feasible roster-building option. However, the New York Yankees have two guys that are suspiciously similar. Their different...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Breakout Candidates — Michael Pineda

The New York Yankees have done little to nothing this offseason to improve their biggest question mark heading into the 2016 season: the starting rotation. Instead, the Yankees addressed their problem at second base by adding Starlin Castro up the middle to pair with shortstop Didi Gregorious. In addition, they added Aroldis Chapman to their bullpen to try and help shorten the...

Yankees have deals with Pineda, Ackley, avert arbitration

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Yankees have agreed to one-year, non-guaranteed contracts with right-hander Michael Pineda and infielder-outfielder Dustin Ackley, forgoing salary arbitration with both.

Joe Girardi has concerns about health of Yankees’ pitching staff

The New York Yankees have gone into the offseason and not addressed their starting pitching. In fact, it arguably got somewhat worse when they traded Adam Warren in the deal to get Starlin Castro. That has to be worrisome for manager Joe Girardi, who acknowledged he has concerns about the health of the team’s starting pitching. “Yeah, I think there’s a concern because of health...

Finding the Yankees a Young Starting Pitcher

So far this offseason, the Yankees have focused on bolstering their batting order through trades for outfielder Aaron Hicks and infielder Starlin Castro. But now, with the team’s position-player alignment pretty much set (barring a trade of Brett Gardner) it is time to talk about pitching. If the season started tomorrow, the Yankees’ starting rotation would look something like...

Necessary Moves: Brett Gardner, New York Yankees

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective. A player can be deemed movable for any of the following reasons: production (or lack thereof), current and future...

Jesus, Mary & Michael

I might just go back to the Greyhound counter and buy a one-way ticket to Mexico.Last night, Michael Pineda had barely placed his ridiculous "iconic" cap on his head and we were six runs down.  He just got hammered.His expression lost all serenity, his eyes glazed and popped, his confidence went in the toilet.  I thought for a moment there, that he was going to ask for a bathroom...

Red Sox Notes: Rick Porcello Finishes Strong In Boston’s Win In The Bronx

The first inning of Tuesday night’s Boston Red Sox-New York Yankees matchup was a disaster, to say the least. Yankees starter Michael Pineda gave up six runs, including a three-run home run to Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart, to start things off, and Rick Porcello responded by giving up four runs of his own with a two-run jack to Dustin Ackley. But from the second inning on, Porcello...

Game 157 Preview: Red Sox at Yankees

The Red Sox were eliminated last night, but it wasn't the result of the effort they've been bringing to the diamond over the last 4 games. The Astros won late last night and ended the very remote chances of the Sox winning out and Astros losing out as well. But the team has won their last 4 games in a row and have only given up 1 run in 38 innings, which is a huge credit to the pitching...
