End-of-Season Notes: Gray, Sabathia, Coaching Staff

?In case you missed it earlier, Didi Gregorius will undergo Tommy John surgery. He suffered the injury at some point during the first two games of the ALDS and played with it the rest of the series. That really stinks. Poor Didi. Here are some other notes from Aaron Boone’s and Brian Cashman’s end-of-season press […] The post End-of-Season Notes: Gray, Sabathia, Coaching Staff appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees reveal CC Sabathia underwent knee surgery

Yankees reveal CC Sabathia underwent knee surgery

The big man’s problem joint required more treatment In what was a bombshell press conference overall, Brian Cashman revealed Friday afternoon that veteran pitcher and free agent-to-be CC Sabathia underwent knee surgery today This is the third straight season that Sabathia has required an arthroscopic procedure on his knee after the year finishes up. Combine that with his DL stint in August to rest his knee, which seems to be a requirement for him going forward, and it’s clear that pursuing teams will have to budget in time off for him accordingly. Given that this is the third time...

Yankees' Tanaka on CC Sabathia: 'I would like for him to come back'

After Game 4 of the ALDS ended in a loss, the Yankees 2018 season was officially closed. For CC Sabathia, it may have also been the end to an era in pinstripes.

The Yankees bullpen was as good as advertised in the postseason

The Yankees bullpen was as good as advertised in the postseason

Which makes Aaron Boone’s lack of urgency just a little bit more frustrating. When the Yankees entered the playoffs, their strategy seemed pretty clear: they would deploy their historic bullpen early and often. While each of their starters, Luis Severino, J.A. Happ, Masahiro Tanaka, and CC Sabathia, actually turned in quite good seasons, the Yankees’ best chance to advance past the 108-win Red Sox was to leverage their elite relievers at every turn. Manager Aaron Boone even demonstrated a pretty firm grasp of how to use his deep relief corps earlier in the playoffs. He pulled Happ just...
Under-fire umpire Angel Hernandez likely done for playoffs, but not for reason you think

Under-fire umpire Angel Hernandez likely done for playoffs, but not for reason you think

His team's season had just ended in the American League Division Series, and before the New York Yankees exited into the chill of winter, veteran left-hander CC Sabathia — one of the most-respected players in the sport — wanted to vent. "I need to say this," Sabathia told reporters at Yankee Stadium...

Bluebird Banter LCS Prediction Contest

We didn’t get the most exciting baseball in the LDS, though the ninth inning of last night’s game was pretty good and anytime the Yankees get thumped I’m happy, though that is offset by the Red Sox winning big. If there could have been a way for both teams to lose. And Angel Hernandez proved, once again, how terrible he is at his job. CC Sabathia wasn’t thrilled with him. I’m expecting CC with be fined, but he’s right a umpire as bad as Angel shouldn’t be working playoff games. In our LDS prediction thread, 8 of us picked the four winners, which seems to suggest there...

CC Sabathia ripped Angel Hernandez following yesterday’s Yankees loss

CC Sabathia ripped Angel Hernandez following yesterday’s Yankees loss

Sabathia unleashed on Hernandez in the postgame interview. Veteran umpire Angel Hernandez had an ALDS he probably wants to forget. On Monday night he served as the first base ump, where he somehow blew three different calls. They all went to replay and were overturned. Talk about a brutal night. Because of the way the rotation shook out, Hernandez found himself behind the plate for a critical Game Four. That’s where he ran into CC Sabathia. Sabathia had a laborious, and ultimately costly, start for the Yankees. He allowed three runs on five hits over three innings of work. He struck out...

Aaron Boone sleepwalked through Game Four of the ALDS, and it sent the Yankees packing

Aaron Boone sleepwalked through Game Four of the ALDS, and it sent the Yankees packing

Boone Sucks 2: Electric Boogalo is the sequel no one asked for. Following yesterday’s exercise in managerial malpractice, it figured to assume that Aaron Boone learned to use a quick hook in regards to his starting pitchers. Surely he couldn’t make the same mistake two days in a row, right? Unfortunately for the Yankees, Boone floundered again, and it likely contributed to their departure from the ALDS. The trouble surrounded the long leash given to CC Sabathia. The veteran left-hander labored in the first inning, but escaped the frame unscathed. Sabathia issued a walk and gave up...

HumpLinks: The ‘Four’ Season

Now it’s just the pair of LCS, with just four teams left standing. Whoosh go the Yankees. Hey, Yankee fans, what happened to that “We want Boston!” chant?? Earlier yesterday, when I learned that CC Sabathia would be pitching and the disaster that is Angel Hernandez would be moving to behind the plate after his Monday debacle, it occurred to me that BBR splits would let me see how Sabathia fares with Hernandez calling balls and strikes. And I could do this for Sabathia’s entire career, and for this season. In both cases things looked pretty awesome for Sabathia. Career-wise, he has...

NEW YORK — Aaron Judge and the New York Yankees couldn't wait to get back home.Now, that's exactly where they're staying.CC Sabathia became the latest pitcher to put New York in an early hole as rookie manager Aaron Boone again stuck with his starter too long, and the Yankees fell just short of extending their season Tuesday night with a 4-3 loss to the rival Boston Red Sox in Game 4 of their AL Division Series."That's the one team that you don't want to lose to," outfielder Brett Gardner said. "We hate losing to them and we love beating them. Obviously, they just had our number this...

Yankees lose 4-3 to Red Sox, get eliminated from 2018 postseason

A slumbering lineup, questionable bullpen usage, and a last chance rally summarizes the final game of 2018 That’s a wrap, folks. There will be no more October baseball in the Bronx after the Yankees broke down in the home half of the ALDS. Following a 16-1 drilling on Monday, the team dropped Game Four 4-3. Tonight’s loss completes what was overall a successful yet frustrating year that ended sooner than anyone on the team wanted. Things went south quickly for the Yankees. CC Sabathia got the first two outs of the game in only eight pitches, but would work the bases loaded before...
