The only change Yankees’ lineup needs is pretty minor

Ready for The Post’s suggestion of how the Yankees can fix their offense? Here it is: Change nothing besides the designated hitter, again, for American League Championship Series Game 3 Monday night at Yankee Stadium. Matt Holliday has enjoyed some success against his old National League Central neighbor and Astros Game 3 starter Charlie Morton,...

Yankees give Matt Holliday his chance at DH

HOUSTON — Matt Holliday’s playoff exile is coming to an end. The DH, who didn’t get an at-bat in the Yankees’ ALDS win over the Indians, is starting against Houston on Friday night in Game 1 of the ALCS at Minute Maid Park. Joe Girardi hinted at the move on Thursday, when he said to...

‘Stay tuned’: Girardi strongly hints at a new DH for Game 1

HOUSTON — With his DHs hitless in 20 at-bats during the ALDS, the Yankees’ Joe Girardi sounded like a manager contemplating adding a third wheel to the picture. Asked about Matt Holliday getting his first taste of this postseason, Girardi said, “Stay tuned.’’ With lefty Dallas Keuchel starting for the Astros in Game 1 on...

Have the Cardinals been sufficiently aggressive in the off-season?

Have the Cardinals been sufficiently aggressive in the off-season?

A look at recent Cardinals off-seasons and whether the team pursued free agents and trades as vigorously as they should have Following the 2009 season, the St. Louis Cardinals signed left fielder Matt Holliday to a seven-year, $120 million contract. While the Cardinals had acquired Holliday via a trade with the Oakland Athletics in July, the outfielder had reached free agency and was not a shoo-in to re-sign with the Cardinals. Ultimately, however, a deal was reached and Matt Holliday signed the most lucrative contract in St. Louis Cardinals history. It seemed like it was just a matter of...

Why Joe Girardi won’t give Matt Holliday a chance

Another postseason game for the Yankees, another lineup without Matt Holliday as the DH. Holliday was on the bench again Sunday at the start of the do-or-die Game 3 against the Indians in The Bronx and entered the game without a plate appearance since the regular-season finale last Sunday, when he homered. Joe Girardi continued...

Matt Holliday doesn’t have a clear role in the ALDS

All but five players on the Yankees’ 25-man ALDS roster have played in this series. Two of the five are the Game 3 and 4 starters, Masahiro Tanaka and Luis Severino, who will each pitch if the series gets to Monday. One is Jordan Montgomery, the break in case of emergency reliever or blowout mop-up […] The post Matt Holliday doesn’t have a clear role in the ALDS appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Chase Headley quietly not happy about big-game benching

This time around, Chase Headley and Matt Holliday were the high-priced veterans to get benched by Joe Girardi. Two years after Jacoby Ellsbury wasn’t in the lineup for the wild-card game against the Astros, Headley got the same fate on Tuesday, when the Yankees beat the Twins 8-4 to advance to the ALDS to play...

Former A’s galore in the MLB playoffs

Former A’s galore in the MLB playoffs

If you’re struggling to find a team to root for, this may help. It’s playoff time, and the A’s aren’t involved. Who should you root for and who are the former A’s involved? We got you covered. New York Yankees Former A’s: Sonny Gray and Matt Holliday Shaved mustache aside, seeing Sonny Gray in pinstripes is unsettling. Gray has been solid since he was traded, not quite an ace but a serviceable pitcher. He’s still delightfully two children stacked on top of each other, and it’s hard to root against him and in a sense, the Yankees. Matt Holliday says hold my beer. Yes, he’s...

The Yankees’ forgotten man doesn’t know what’s next

This is not the season Matt Holliday envisioned when he signed with the Yankees for $13 million this offseason, and even he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to salvage it in the playoffs. There’s no guarantee the struggling DH will be in the lineup Tuesday, when the Yankees host the Twins in the wild-card...
