How do Yankees stars Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton stack up against Bryce Harper?

How do Yankees stars Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton stack up against Bryce Harper?

Hypothetically, if you could only have two of the three, who would they be? Pitchers and catchers have officially reported to spring training, but one of baseball’s biggest stars, Bryce Harper, is still unsigned as a free agent. The Yankees have shown little interest, mostly due to the notion that they have a full outfield. Still, it would be foolish to completely rule the Yankees out of any Harper sweepstakes until the very end. However, it seems increasingly likely that the Yankees will pass on Harper. Let’s have a little fun with numbers and hypotheticals anyway, though. Let’s...

Top 10 spring training story lines: From Ichiro’s farewell to Nolan Arenado’s future

Top 10 spring training story lines: From Ichiro’s farewell to Nolan Arenado’s future

A year ago this week, as spring training 2018 opened, the baseball world was buzzing about the first glimpses of Shohei Ohtani, the Japanese two-way star who was going to revolutionize the game with the Los Angeles Angels; slugger Giancarlo Stanton's first appearances in the New York Yankees' pinstripes; and the Chicago Cubs' signing of right-hander Yu Darvish to a six-year, $126 million deal to be their ace and lead them back to the game's pinnacle.

Feb. 13th Spring Training Notes: Sabathia, Ellsbury, Severino, Montgomery, Diehl, Stephan

?It was cloudy and rainy in Florida today but I don’t care. Baseball is back. The Yankees opened Spring Training today and Aaron Boone held his annual start-of-spring press conference (video above). More questions were asked about Manny Machado (two) than Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gleyber Torres combined (zero). “There’s no question, we’ll embrace […] The post Feb. 13th Spring Training Notes: Sabathia, Ellsbury, Severino, Montgomery, Diehl, Stephan appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

J.T. Realmuto’s best moments as a Marlin

J.T. Realmuto’s best moments as a Marlin

A look at the very best moments of J.T. Realmuto’s career in a Miami uniform. J.T. Realmuto has worked hard since being drafted in the 3rd round of the 2010 draft by the Marlins. He slowly worked his way up the minor league system impressing enough in his short stint with Miami in 2014 that by the end of April in 2015 the Marlins had enough confidence in him to make him the everyday starting catcher. He almost broke a fish tank, hit a HR in spots where people thought only former teammate Giancarlo Stanton could hit, carried himself as a leader to the different pitchers and younger...

Think Hal Steinbrenner and Yankees are pinching pennies? You can thank Jacoby Ellsbury and Giancarlo Stanton for that

The last position player the Yankees signed to a long-term free agent deal was Jacoby Ellsbury. That happened in December of 2013. If you want to get to the root of why neither Bryce Harper nor Manny Machado are Yankees yet, nor are they ever likely to be, you might want to start there. This is...

A look at Giancarlo Stanton’s opt-out question after one year with the Yankees

A look at Giancarlo Stanton’s opt-out question after one year with the Yankees

The Yankees have a couple of opt-out questions looming, none more important than Giancarlo Stanton’s. Yesterday, I examined Aroldis Chapman’s opt-out clause that would allow him to re-enter free agency after the 2019 season. Chapman’s the only player that could opt out of his contract with the Yankees after this year, but he’s not the only Yankee with a very interesting impending opt-out question. Giancarlo Stanton’s opt-out clause looms two years in the distance, and after one year in pinstripes, the picture regarding Stanton’s contract status is ever murkier. Part of the...

Yankees: What Tino, A-Rod, and Clemens Tell Us About Stanton

After an underwhelming first year with the New York Yankees, Giancarlo Stanton is set to have a bounce-back year. Here’s why. Giancarlo Stanton emerged with the Miami Marlins in 2010 and quickly established himself as a premier MLB power hitter. In fact, after nine big league season and fewer games played, Stanton has amassed more […] Yankees: What Tino, A-Rod, and Clemens Tell Us About Stanton - Call to the Pen - Call to the Pen - A Major League Baseball Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

How Yankees fans can prepare for the inevitable work stoppage

How Yankees fans can prepare for the inevitable work stoppage

Let’s face it, a strike is imminent come 2021. Here’s some potential activities to replace baseball when that happens. Remember how tense last offseason was around baseball? Sure, it was enjoyable for Yankee fans once the Bombers snatched Giancarlo Stanton from Derek Jeter and the hapless Marlins, but for the league as a whole, tensions were starting to rise. This offseason, those tensions have reached boiling point, and will certainly spill over by 2021, when the current CBA expires. If a players’ strike wasn’t already a foregone conclusion, Wednesday’s news of the White Sox...
