The Yankees’ biggest surprises of 2018

The Yankees’ biggest surprises of 2018

What was most shocking about the Yankees’ 2018 season? There were lofty expectations for the Yankees heading into the 2018 season. After all, they made it to the ALCS in 2017, and they had just acquired Giancarlo Stanton. We knew that the starting rotation would be shaky, and we figured that the bullpen would be great. That much was obvious. Here’s what we didn’t expect: Miguel Andujar and Gleyber Torres The Bombers traded for Brandon Drury and signed Neil Walker specifically because they didn’t want two rookie infielders. Drury’s migraines and blurred vision threw a wrench...

The Yankees have questions all around their infield heading into the 2018-19 offseason

Although the 2018 season had a (very) disappointing ending, it is exciting to look at the Yankees and know they are loaded with young talent for the future. Aaron Judge is a superstar through and through. He’s a top ten player in baseball. Then there’s Luis Severino, Gary Sanchez, Gleyber Torres, and Miguel Andujar. Most […] The post The Yankees have questions all around their infield heading into the 2018-19 offseason appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Why we can’t assume Miguel Andujar’s fielding will just get better

Why we can’t assume Miguel Andujar’s fielding will just get better

The Rookie of the Year finalist had a historically awful defensive season Miguel Andujar was one of the best stories to come out of the 2018 New York Yankees’ season. In spring training, all eyes were on top prospect Gleyber Torres, who had himself a fine rookie campaign when it was all said and done. Andujar was even better. Miggy will find himself one of the top two finishers in the AL Rookie of the Year vote. He posted a 128 wRC+, broke the Yankees’ franchise record for rookie doubles, and did perhaps more than anyone else on the team in lengthening the best lineup in baseball. As he...

Yankees set another record, with their pitching

Yankees set another record, with their pitching

Bombers’ hitters slugged their way to a number of home run records this year, but their pitchers displayed historic power as well. The Yankees reclaimed the single-season home run crown by belting 257 long balls this year. They also became the first team to have 12 men reach the double-digit dinger plateau. Individual players produced 24 multi-homer games, matching the record held by the 1961 Yankees and ‘66 Braves. On the last day of the season, Miguel Andujar tied Fred Lynn’s AL rookie mark with 47 doubles. That’s an awesome display of firepower from the offense. The pitching...

Yankees announce Wild Card Game lineup

This lineup is stacked. The 2018 American League Wild Card Game inches closer to first pitch. With each passing hour, new bits of information emerge. Just a short while ago the Yankees announced their lineup for the evening, and it is stacked. Last week Ryan imagined what the optimal lineup would look like. Go to find out he was a dead ringer for it. This is also the same lineup the club used on Friday at Fenway Park. There are no easy outs. Even the bottom third of the lineup contains the fearsome combination of Miguel Andujar, Gary Sanchez, and Gleyber Torres. That would make up the...

Miguel Andujar ties American League rookie doubles record

Miguel Andujar tops off a historic rookie campaign with his 47th double of the year, tying Fred Lynn’s American League record.

Andujar’s record-tying double came in the top of the fourth during an otherwise meaningless game, as both teams’ postseason berths and seeding were already assured.

Miguel Andujar makes history as Yankees drop finale to Red Sox, 10-2

In an otherwise forgettable game, the third baseman padded his already impressive ROY resume. The Yankees took care of business during the final series of the regular season in Boston.

The Bombers go for the weekend sweep and season-series win over the Red Sox today. The Yankees have had a very productive weekend so far in Boston.

Who would win the Yankees’ 2018 team awards?

Who is the team’s MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, and more? Despite knocking on the door of 100 wins and having a generally successful season, the 2018 New York Yankees don’t really have any candidates for many major awards. Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar are dueling with Shohei Ohtani for AL Rookie of the Year, but that’s it. For whatever reason, no Yankees have strong chances of winning any other awards, like MVP, Cy Young, or Comeback Player of the Year. In that respect, let’s take a look at the major MLB awards and dole them out on a team basis. Who is the 2018 Yankees’...
