Sunday night open thread

Here’s your Sunday night open thread Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend. Thanksgiving week is one of the best of the year. I know I’m ready for it. I’m also excited because starting tomorrow, Pinstripe Alley will run our major three-part home run series. It’s called Home Run or Bust: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bombs. We put a lot of hard work into it, and we can’t wait to share it with you. Tomorrow, Pinstripe Alley begins a three-part series on the #Yankees and home runs. It’s one of our most ambitious projects yet. Stay tuned!...

Ask PSA: Could the Yankees trade for Whit Merrifield?

Ask PSA: Could the Yankees trade for Whit Merrifield?

The Royals second baseman is interesting, but he probably isn’t on the move. Last week I put out a call for Yankees mailbag questions. I received a handful of submissions, but one merited a lengthier response. I’m going to give that question a try today, and revisit the other submissions soon. EasyRider28 asks: Any chance the Yankees might look into a trade for Whit Merrifield? He plays second base and outfield. He hit .304 and had 45 stolen bases — 5.2 WAR in 2018. Merrifield, 29, had a breakout season in 2018. He slashed .304/.367/.438 with 12 home runs. That translated to a 120...

Yankees great Reggie Jackson on free agent Manny Machado's comments: 'That ain't going to play here'

Machado may be a back-burner item for the Yankees at the moment. But they have sought out background information on him, and SNY's Andy Martino has reported the Yanks are "ready to pounce" if Machado's market doesn't get out of hand.

Where do the Yankees stand entering the offseason?

Where do the Yankees stand entering the offseason?

How does the Yankees’ current roster stack up right at this moment? The World Series ended weeks ago, and the hot stove is still simmering. Teams have mostly gotten their affairs in order, re-signing the players they intend to keep, and shifting their gazes toward external means of improvement. The Yankees brought back Brett Gardner and CC Sabathia, and now will spend the winter turning over every stone in an effort to put together a championship roster in 2019. Essentially, the table is set. Teams have their rosters in order, and are ready to add, subtract, and just generally move...

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Luis Severino

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Luis Severino

It was a tale of two Sevy seasons in 2018, but his first half numbers were truly remarkable. It really was a tale of two halves for Luis Severino in 2018, wasn’t it? First, you had the unbelievable start, which didn’t surprise many after Severino’s stellar 2017 placed him in the top three of the Cy Young Award voting. Severino didn’t seem to be peaking in 2018, but getting better by the month. After finishing March and April with a 2.61 ERA, his May numbers improved to 2.03, then to 1.60 in June. The Yankee ace was an obvious choice for his second-straight All-Star appearance, and...

The same will be true if the Yankees don’t go […] The post Plan B appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The story of Ricky Ledee’s Yankees career

The story of Ricky Ledee’s Yankees career

From big hits in the World Series to an interesting Twitter account, Ricky Ledee is one of the more fun figures from the late-90’s dynasty teams. Speaking on a strictly personal level, when thinking of Ricky Ledee, I often think of him in the same vein as a Shane Spencer, or Homer Bush. Obviously, one of those three (Spencer) did something far more remarkable than the other two. Yet as a young fan, all three of them fit the mold as memorable randoms on the late 90’s teams. However, Ledee impacted the dynasty Yankees in a couple different ways, some that went beyond his 192 games in...

What would Don Mattingly be worth as a free agent today?

What would Don Mattingly be worth as a free agent today?

Part four of our series turns to Donnie Baseball. Don Mattingly may well be one of the most underrated Yankees of the past half-century, especially among casual baseball fans, or fans of non-Yankee teams. The heart of the Bronx Bombers during the World Series-less 1980’s, Mattingly’s excellence is overshadowed by the Core Five and their playoff success, as well as his own injury-hastened exit from baseball. Given that the Yankees won more games in the 1980’s as a whole than any other team in baseball, it’s reasonable to think that if the Wild Card existed during the prime of...

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Gary Sanchez

Yankees 2018 Roster Report Card: Gary Sanchez

The Kraken fell well short of expectations. Gary Sanchez exploded onto the scene in 2016 as a 23-year-old early-August call-up. The Kraken put on a dazzling display of power, clubbing 20 home runs in just 53 games en route to a second-place finish in the American League Rookie of the Year Award voting. His 3.0 WAR in less than one-third of a season was easily one of the greatest late-season rookie campaigns in baseball history. Sanchez followed with an injury-shortened 2017 season that saw him win the Silver Slugger Award, earn an All-Star nod, and break the Yankees’ single-season...

Yankees fans have seen many one-team stars, but will we ever see them again?

Yankees fans have seen many one-team stars, but will we ever see them again?

Joe Mauer’s retirement makes one wonder if this is the end of an era. It’s been an emotional week in the state of Minnesota. After fifteen years on the Twins, Joe Mauer officially retired. On Monday, Mauer held a press conference to thank everybody like the good Minnesotan boy that he is. No really, he thanked everyone. As I currently live with a die-hard Twins fan, I watched said press conference. It was pretty adorable, as well as emotional for many Twins fans. It reminded me of what a homegrown, one-team superstar can mean to a fanbase. It also struck a cord with me, as this era...
