Five years later, the Michael Pineda-Jesus Montero trade still teaches lessons

Five years later, the Michael Pineda-Jesus Montero trade still teaches lessons

A journey into how one trade speaks to the transcendent moments of being a baseball fan. Bill James once wrote that it takes five years to properly evaluate a trade. “There are trades where this is misleading of course, “ he clarified, “but as a general rule five years is quite enough for the direction of the result to be well established.” The five-year window on the Michael Pineda-Jesus Montero closes this week. On January 13, 2012, the Yankees and the Mariners agreed to a trade that still raises controversy and invites debate. While some trades come and go, filed away into the...
Yankees 2017 Potential Free Agent Target: Nathan Eovaldi

Yankees 2017 Potential Free Agent Target: Nathan Eovaldi

We won’t see Eovaldi next year, but what about in 2018? According to Brian Cashman, the Yankees are at “99 percent-plus that what we have is what we're going to camp with.” That means the team’s rotation of Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda, and a handful of stardust is very likely to make up their Opening Day roster. As problematic as that reality is toward the 2017 team, it is even worse for the 2018 squad when all three starters will be free agents at the end of next season. Tanaka has the ability to opt out of his contract next winter—something he will do. CC and...
The Yankees’ starting pitching problem extends beyond the fifth starter spot

The Yankees’ starting pitching problem extends beyond the fifth starter spot

A minor signing can’t solve a more systemic pitching issue. As Jason put it a few days ago, the Yankees need starting pitching. Other than CC Sabathia, Masahiro Tanaka, and Michael Pineda, there is not a single starting pitcher you could comfortably slot into the starting rotation. There are a litany of maybes: Luis Severino, Luis Cessa, Adam Warren, Chad Green, and Bryan Mitchell will likely get a shot at the final two spots, but there’s a good chance all of them will be better in the bullpen. This is a 2017 issue, and there may be some short-term solutions. As Jason said, Tyson Ross,...

Exploring a new way to analyze Michael Pineda

Exploring a new way to analyze Michael Pineda

We’ve tried to decipher Michael Pineda since the dawn of time, and, for the most part, our efforts have been fruitless. Perhaps a different approach is needed. I promised myself I’d be done with Michael Pineda articles, moving on from the forever perplexing and paradoxical hurler. I thought I was finished after writing a piece that can be summarized with the ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ emoji. I threw in the towel on understanding how a player with so many strikeouts, so few walks, and such dazzling spurts of dominance can somehow end up with two straight seasons of an ERA over 4.30. Alas, the...

The Yankees have fielded offers for Michael Pineda, but it might not be a good time to trade him

For the first time in nearly three decades, the Yankees decided to sell at the trade deadline last year, and it helped them build one of the game’s best farm systems. The selling continued this offseason with the Brian McCann trade and it could continue to, uh, continue with a Brett Gardner and/or Chase Headley […] The post The Yankees have fielded offers for Michael Pineda, but it might not be a good time to trade him appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
