NYY vs. COL: J.A. Happ vs. Kyle Freeland

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The Yankees and Rockies face off for the first time since 2016. After taking three games out of four against the Rays, the Yankees welcome the Colorado Rockies to town for a three-game series this weekend. The savage Yankees currently have an eight-game lead in the AL East and could tack on a few more in the win column since the Rockies are currently tied for last place in the NL West and are 2-8 in their last ten games. Tonight, the Yankees will send J.A. Happ to start the game. Happ had a good but not great performance last Saturday against the Blue Jays. He...

The strategy the Yankees should pursue at the trade deadline

The strategy the Yankees should pursue at the trade deadline

Submit your answer in the FanPost section for the chance to see your story featured on the front page. The MLB trade deadline is a little over two weeks away and the Yankees have some decisions to make. Last year, they added a bat (Luke Voit), traded away numerous relievers (Adam Warren, Chasen Shreve, Giovanny Gallegos), acquired some rotation help (J.A. Happ and Lance Lynn), and improved upon the bullpen by adding Zack Britton. They also acquired Andrew McCutchen in August, but they won’t have the luxury of making moves after the July 31st deadline this year. That brings us to this...

Rally comes too little too late as Yankees drop game to Blue Jays

Rally comes too little too late as Yankees drop game to Blue Jays

It was the best of bloops, it was the worst of bloops. Today’s can be pretty much summed up from what happened in two half innings. In the bottom of the fifth, the Yankees had the bases loaded with two outs. Gary Sanchez lined one into center. It wasn’t the most well-struck ball, but it appeared to be headed for the ground in center, and the Yankees looked like they would score two runs. Instead, Randal Grichuk made a sliding catch to end the inning. In the top of the sixth, J.A. Happ retired the first hitter of the inning. Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Cavan Biggio then both reached on...

Yankees Highlights: Bombers avoid shutout, lose anyway

Yankees Highlights: Bombers avoid shutout, lose anyway

This was annoying. Over eight innings and two outs, it looked like the Yankees would lose on a shutout for the first time since June 30, 2018. The bats couldn’t get it going against the Blue Jays for most of the afternoon, but then the ninth-inning fight came. Unfortunately it wasn’t a strong enough dose to take the win. We’ll have a full recap up shortly, but in the meantime, here are the highlights. Winner of the Game J.A. Happ had one of his better starts of the season on Saturday afternoon. The left-hander allowed two runs over 5.1 innings, while striking out five and walking...

NYY vs. TOR: J.A. Happ vs. Clayton Richard

NYY vs. TOR: J.A. Happ vs. Clayton Richard

The Yankees look to start a winning streak and seal a series win against Toronto. The second half of the season got off to a pretty good start for the Yankees last night. They won, they got six shutout innings from a recently returned starting pitcher, and their recent acquisition came through with the game’s big hit. While today’s game has still yet to be played, at least one good thing will for sure happen in it. The big news today is the return of Luke Voit. The first baseman has been out since the London Series, but makes his return this afternoon. Not shockingly, he goes straight...

Yankees potential trade target: Kirby Yates

Yankees potential trade target: Kirby Yates

Could the Yankees reunite with Yates? The Yankees will look to add starting pitching help over the coming weeks. Elite pitchers are hard to come by, however, and it remains to be seen what price the Bombers might be willing to pay. Last year, they ended up with the likes of J.A. Happ, Lance Lynn, and Zack Britton. If they aren’t able to get a starting pitcher at a reasonable price, they certainly could target a reliever and make their bullpen even better. Might they connect with the Padres about Kirby Yates? Yates, 32, is an old friend of the Yankees. The right-hander spent the 2016...

NYY vs. TBR: J.A. Happ vs. Yonny Chirinos

The Yankees will ring in the Fourth at the Trop It’s hard to find a better combination than the Fourth of July and baseball. Watching the Yankees before some fireworks makes for a perfect afternoon, even if the game is at the Trop. J.A. Happ gets the ball for the Bombers today, hoping to finish his first half on a strong note. The veteran left-hander has struggled for most of the season, pitching to a 5.23 ERA (5.51 FIP) over 84.1 innings. He also has allowed a ton of home runs, with his 2.13 HR/9 the second worst mark among all qualified pitchers. Happ could seriously use a strong...

Fourth of July open thread

Here’s your open thread for the day! Happy Fourth of July to our American Yankees fans! I feel like the Bombers usually play early afternoon games on holidays, but that isn’t the case today. The game starts at 5:05 ET as they kick off a four-game set in Tampa. J.A. Happ will take the mound opposite of Yonny Chirinos. Fun Questions What are your plans for the day? Which two Yankees would you invite to a BBQ?
