Yankees 0, Rays 14: The getaway day from hell

Yankees 0, Rays 14: The getaway day from hell

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ My studies of mathematics inform me that the Yankees did not complete the sweep today. Again. Time and time again, the Yankees have had the chance to make a statement by wrapping up a potentially season-defining sweep. Time and time again, they’ve taken that chance and flushed it down the toilet. One notable exception was when they swept the White Sox in May as part of a six-game winning streak after Corey Kluber’s no-hitter. Kluber got hurt immediately after that, and that team has gone 25-29 since then. That run includes a three-game sweep...

NYY News: Bombers looking to add impact players at the deadline

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: With the MLB trade deadline just about a week away, the Yankees appear to be potential “buyers.” Brian Cashman and his team have been in contact with the Marlins about Starling Marte, the Twins about outfielder Max Kepler, and the Rockies about Trevor Story. The asking prices are assumed to be somewhat high, and while he’s not...

Yankees potential trade target: Jon Gray

Yankees potential trade target: Jon Gray

Photo by Norm Hall/ The Rockies’ pitcher would be a fruitful addition to fill out the Yankees starting rotation. With no set return date for Yankees starting pitchers Luis Severino and Corey Kluber, the team could really use another pitcher to fill out the starting rotation. Since experimenting with using Domingo Germán in relief and losing a number of bullpen stalwarts to the COVID-19 IL, every four or five days the Yankees have had to cobble together enough arms to get through nine innings. It’s a struggle. As former manager Joe Girardi used to say, “it’s...

Yankees 1, Astros 0: That’s his $#$#@ing game.

Yankees 1, Astros 0: That’s his $#$#@ing game.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Gerrit Cole shoved. If Corey Kluber had not thrown a no-hitter earlier this year, tonight would have gone down as the best performance by a Yankees pitcher this season. Fresh off his worst outing of the season and amidst questions that he was useless without Spider Tack, Gerrit Cole put together his best performance in pinstripes, twirling a dominant complete-game shutout and outdueled the Astros pitching staff as the Yankees won, 1-0, to clinch the season series against Houston.

The Yankees should embrace the opener

The Yankees should embrace the opener

Photo by Steven Ryan/ With the pitching staff in disarray, it’s time to embrace a strategy of the 2018 and 2019 Rays. Coming into the season, the Yankees pitching staff could have been described as Gerrit Cole and four question marks. Corey Kluber, Jameson Taillon, and Domingo Germán, after all, combined for example one inning of work last season, while Jordan Montgomery was uneven in his first season back after Tommy John surgery. Up until June 2, however, the pitching staff defied expectations, accumulating 9.6 fWAR (second-most in baseball) thanks to a 3.16 ERA...

The fact that the players’ ballots for some of these reserve spots were already tabulated probably helped them out, as neither has looked sharp of late (especially...

Still no timetable for Corey Kluber to return to Yankees' rotation

Kluber said that he has been throwing from 90 feet for about a week as he tries to come back from a right shoulder strain, but doesn't know when he will pitch again.
