Who should be the Yankees’ fourth outfielder in 2020?

Who should be the Yankees’ fourth outfielder in 2020?

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees have a variety of options when it comes to who their fourth outfielder should be in 2020, but there is a correct choice. As of right now, in terms of who the Yankees are paying in 2020, their outfield will consist of Aaron Hicks, Aaron Judge, and Giancarlo Stanton. With all three of these players very injury-prone—and Hicks start to start the first half on the injured list—the fourth outfielder will play a critical role in 2020. There are a few different routes the Yankees could go down when it comes to who that fourth outfielder will be. The...

Yankees 2019 Roster Report Card: Aaron Judge

Yankees 2019 Roster Report Card: Aaron Judge

Photo by Cooper Neill/MLB Photos via Judge was really good this year, but a bit short of spectacular. Aaron Judge had another dynamic season for the Yankees in 2019, but it was also a season that fell a bit short of his lofty expectations. Judge missed significant time with injury again, this time a pesky oblique strain that cost him two months, and he ended his season on a poor note with a disappointing playoff showing. Even when not playing at his personal best, Judge is still an incredible player. He had a streaky season this year, but put together solid numbers altogether and...

Yankees 2019 Roster Report Card: Nestor Cortes Jr

Yankees 2019 Roster Report Card: Nestor Cortes Jr

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports The relief fill-in has some fun traits, but the league was never caught off-guard by his stuff There are fun players, and there are good players, and then there are fun good players. Aaron Judge is that last category, and in 2019, Nestor Cortes might have been in the first category. It was interesting to see how the Yankees would use a soft-tossing lefty in what’s normally a flame-throwing bullpen, and while Cortes Jr.’s release point and arm slot trickery was fun to see, his stuff probably doesn’t measure up to MLB caliber, especially in a loaded...

Imagining the Yankees as scary movie characters

Photo by Andreas Arnold/picture alliance via Happy Halloween from Pinstripe Alley! Because today is Halloween, I have decided to take a variety of scary movie characters and relate them to different players on the Yankees. This is meant for fun and is not intended to be taken literally. Obviously, these players aren’t mass murders who wreak havoc. Without further ado, let’s start things off with big No. 99. Aaron Judge -Frankenstein’s Monster Victor Frankenstein is a young scientist who creates a massive creature as an experiment. The monster is very large, measuring up around...

NYY News: No regrets

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Cashman has no regrets about roster construction; Gardner and Maybin among options to replace Aaron Hicks in center field; Best World Series of the 21st century NY Daily News | Kristie Ackert: The Yankees fell short of their ultimate goal this season, but calling the year a “failure” like Aaron Judge does seems a bit harsh. Brian Cashman takes another view, commenting that he feels that the organization has a good process in place in Thursday’s press conference. Given that the Yankees managed to win 103 games and advance further into the postseason than...

DJ LeMahieu was the Yankees’ MVP

DJ LeMahieu was the Yankees’ MVP

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The offseason acquisition was an offensive force with a contact-oriented approach and some added power. Determining the Most Valuable Player on the Yankees’ roster may not be an easy task, given the fantastic season that Gleyber Torres had and the impressive numbers that Aaron Judge put up despite missing many games. On the pitching side, James Paxton and Masahiro Tanaka each surpassed 3.0 fWAR and Domingo German started the season on fire. However, nobody had the consistently great performance of one of most underrated and off-the-radar offseason...

NYY News: Bombers could target Stephen Strasburg

Photo by Patrick Smith/ CC Sabathia leaves with a heartfelt goodbye; Stephen Strasburg could be at the top of the Yankees’ offseason plans; Aaron Judge calls the 2019 season a failure; Edwin Encarnacion says his postseason play will hurt for awhile NJ.com | Joe Giglio: The Yankees are assumed to be in the market for a starting pitcher once the offseason officially begins. Gerrit Cole is most likely at the top of their list, but Stephen Strasburg could also be a great second option. The Nationals starter can opt-out of his four-year $100 million contract, thus becoming a prized free...
