Before the Yankees can think about Harper or Machado, the farm system has to come through

Next year, as in 2018, the Yankees hope to get their payroll under the $197M luxury tax threshold. They’ve been hoping to get under for years, and 2018 will be the best opportunity to do it because CC Sabathia and Alex Rodriguez will be off the books, maybe Masahiro Tanaka too. That’s a lot of […] The post Before the Yankees can think about Harper or Machado, the farm system has to come through appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Previewing the Right-Handed Power

Last year, the Yankees had a power problem from the right side of the plate. Alex Rodriguez did, well, poorly enough that he essentially retired early. As right-handers, Chase Headley and Mark Teixeira had wOBAs of .301 (86 wRC+) and .307 (90 wRC+) respectively with basement-level power: .082 ISO for Headley and .109 for Tex.

The Yankees haven’t had a superstar, but that might change soon

The Yankees haven’t had a superstar, but that might change soon

The Yankees are in the midst of a superstar-drought. Could it be ending soon? Since the days when they were called the New York Highlanders, the Yankees have always had superstars. From Babe Ruth to Lou Gehrig, from Joe DiMaggio to Mickey Mantle, from Reggie Jackson to Don Mattingly, to Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez, every era of Yankee baseball has been encompassed by the career of an all-time player. The idea of a "superstar" is a bit subjective, but even so, it's hard to deny that the Yankees have essentially always had one. If we define a star as someone who recorded over 6 rWAR (a...

Yankees Prospects: Is there Jorge Mateo prospect fatigue?

Yankees Prospects: Is there Jorge Mateo prospect fatigue?

He may be a top prospect in baseball, but he’s been around for a while already without ever reaching a high level. For the first time in what feels like forever, being a Yankees fan means also knowing your prospects. There was a time when if you knew who was in the starting lineup, then you pretty much understood the team. They were also famous enough that you could even explain to someone on the street who was on the team and they’d recognize the names: Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte, and the like. Now, that isn’t really the case. I’ve found myself, on...

The Starlin Castro trade has not worked out as the Yankees hoped

The Starlin Castro trade has not worked out as the Yankees hoped

Even acknowledging the low cost, Castro hasn’t been that good in pinstripes. On December 12, 2013, the Yankees franchise changed. After maintaining a tradition that homegrown stars would always remain in the Bronx, Brian Cashman and the Steinbrenners allowed Robinson Cano to explore his options in free agency without a competitive offer. On that day, he signed a ten-year, $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners. In one way, it was an excellent decision. The Yankees emphasized their new-look philosophy that they wouldn’t get burned by long term deals a la Alex Rodriguez, so they...
