The Yankees should take a flyer on Marwin Gonzalez

The Yankees should take a flyer on Marwin Gonzalez

Gonzalez provides both a reliable contingency plan at first base and depth across the diamond. Heading into the 2018-19 offseason, the Yankees’ first base situation remains murky. Sure, the Bombers have two options at the position, but both have their fair share of uncertainty. Greg Bird’s prospect sheen has worn almost completely off at this point, and one wonders if he can ever recapture the glory of his 2015 debut. Meanwhile, Luke Voit emerged out of nowhere to give the Yanks hope at the position, but he has yet to prove that he can sustain an above-average batting line over the...

Room to Grow

While Greg Bird’s year was essentially lost and Neil Walker’s was a roller coaster, things went just about as well as they could have for the Yankees’ youngest players, Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar. Both turned in stellar debut seasons and are likely to finish in the top 3 of AL Rookie of the Year voting, […] The post Room to Grow appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Which Yankees prospects could contribute in 2019?

Which Yankees prospects could contribute in 2019?

Who will be the next hot rookie to join the Bombers? Although the Yankees of recent years don’t yet have the championships to show for it, one thing they have excelled at is developing their young players. Gary Sanchez was a Rookie of the Year finalist, Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar are likely to be, and Aaron Judge actually won the award. That’s not even mentioning the contributions of Luis Severino and occasional flashes from Greg Bird and Clint Frazier. Some like to say that the Yankees buy their rings, but that won’t be the case the next time the Bombers take home the big...

The Yankees need a true contingency plan for first base in 2019

The Yankees need a true contingency plan for first base in 2019

There’s no telling what the team has in Luke Voit and Greg Bird. First base wasn’t supposed to be a problem for the Yankees. Mark Teixeira held down the position for a long time, and his heir apparent, Greg Bird, emerged in 2015. Outside of Teixeira’s brief resurgence 2015, though, first base has been an absolute black hole for the Bombers. That’s mostly because this team banked on the talent and potential of Bird, which has backfired for various reasons. Bird’s health woes have been discussed ad nauseam. This year, however, a new problem surfaced. It was the first time that Bird...

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Greg Bird

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Greg Bird

It was a lost season in every way for Greg Bird. The Yankees’ young core of talent has been percolating for years. Gary Sanchez’s name has been known for almost a decade. Aaron Judge was drafted back in 2013. Luis Severino was signed as an amateur free agent in 2011. Greg Bird was once a part of that youth movement. Members of the Yankee organization went so far as to call Bird that most talented hitter in the system. Bird’s rookie season in 2015 was a success, but the memory of his initial call-up has faded. Bird has turned in consecutive lost seasons, and after a miserable 2018...
