2021 is a make-or-break year for these Yankees in arbitration

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/ Aaron Judge, Gary Sánchez, and Gleyber Torres are the nucleus around which this Yankees team is built. How they perform in 2021 will determine whether that core remains intact. The Yankees’ current championship window was opened on the backs of the Baby Bombers. The fact they received incredible production out of such young, cost-controlled stars developed through the farm system allowed them to invest in other areas of the roster. Aaron Judge, Gary Sánchez, and Gleyber Torres represent the offensive core of this team, and it was hoped such a talented trio...

NYY News: Judgement unclear

NYY News: Judgement unclear

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Aaron Judge on the trading block?; re-imagining the 2004 ALCS; payroll in 2021 and beyond NJ.com | Joe Giglio: Would you trade Aaron Judge? The former Rookie of the Year will be 29 next April, and this offseason will likely see his biggest raise as he enters his second season of arbitration. Given that and the Yankees’ lack of starting pitching options, the team could make him available over the winter for the right suitor. Judge has been the face of the franchise since arriving in 2016, trading him would truly signal that nobody is untouchable in MLB. New...

Yankees Mailbag: Aaron Judge to first base, offseason plans, more

Photo by Christian Petersen/ The first mailbag of the offseason has arrived. Good morning everyone, there were plenty of questions tossed in for this week’s mailbag. I’ll try to get to a bit more of them than usual, but there’s probably going to be an overflow into next week as well.

Yankees announce lineup for pivotal Game Five against the Rays

Yankees announce lineup for pivotal Game Five against the Rays

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports The Win it for Whitey lineup. With only hours to go before their decisive showdown with the Rays, the Yankees have announced their lineup for Game Five. Unsurprisingly, there aren’t many changes, with Aaron Boone deciding to roll with what’s been working. With Tyler Glasnow starting, and a rested Rays bullpen looming, the Yankees need their lineup ready to go at full strength. That includes Aaron Judge, who has gone 3-for-27 with two home runs (36 wRC+) this postseason. Similarly, a boost from Gio Urhsela, who is 5-for-24 (58 wRC+) in the playoffs,...

Everyone thinks Gio Urshela’s a brilliant defender, except Statcast

Photo by Alex Trautwig/MLB Photos via The Yankees’ third baseman has made a habit of making highlight-reel plays, but one metric doesn’t seem to like him at all The headline of the Yankees’ 2020 postseason so far is easy enough to figure out: the bats are back with a vengeance. The lineup, finally healthy, is clicking in a way that seemed all but impossible to imagine a few short weeks ago. The bouquets tossed at DJ LeMahieu, Aaron Judge and company have been well earned. But credit is also due to their pitching (mainly Gerrit Cole) and, yes, their defense, specifically third...

Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are back to slugging for the Yankees

Judge and Stanton appear to be peaking at the right time, and that is bad, bad news for the rest of the league The Yankees’s offense is firing on all cylinders in the postseason. Before Tuesday’s games, they had scored more runs in the playoffs than the Dodgers, Marlins, Braves, Blue Jays, Brewers, Twins, Cubs and Reds combined, with 31. Much of it has to do with health. The Yankees were, at different points in the regular season, without DJ LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres, Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton because of injuries. They also had to deal with some unexpected under-performers, such...
