The Yankees might be betting on DJ LeMahieu and the Coors Field hangover

If the “Coors Field effect” can explain DJ LeMahieu’s dreadful road performance, the Yankees’ new infielder could have untapped offensive potential. The Yankees signed DJ LeMahieu last week to shore up their infield. That, of course, has caused some consternation. The move was met with, shall we say, a polarizing reaction, with much of the fanbase up in arms about the team’s apparent disinterest in Manny Machado. Others heralded the move as rock-solid, with the Yankees importing a well-rounded player that suits their needs. Indeed, LeMahieu does bring some welcome defensive...

The Yankees hope DJ LeMahieu can shore up a shaky defensive infield

Without Didi Gregorius for at least half the season, the Yankees needed some kind of defensive stability in the infield. Will their latest signing fit the bill? It wasn’t the infield signing that many Yankees fans hoped it would be, but the Bombers did sign...

The Yankees’ way forward with Sonny Gray should be clear

The Yankees hesitated momentarily with their plan to deal Gray before the season, but should press forward in trade talks Last month, a surprise announcement came that CC Sabathia had to undergo an unexpected heart procedure. Thankfully, the operation seems to have been a success, as Sabathia’s recovery has gone smoothly thus far, but for a moment it seemed to throw a wrench into one offseason quandary: when and where the Yankees would trade Sonny Gray. Brian Cashman made news early in the offseason by announcing his full intention to trade Gray before the start of the season, and...

The Yankees’ offseason has been full of gambles

The Yankees’ offseason has been full of gambles

Instead of continuing to add, the Yankees are betting that the 2018 team still has significant room for growth. Let’s be honest – championship windows in sports often end up shorter than fans and teams anticipate. For the Yankees, they were positively ahead of schedule following the 2017 season, coming off of an impressive postseason run and with likely future growth after trading for one of baseball’s top sluggers, Giancarlo Stanton. While the team won 100 games in 2018, the Yankees only earned a wild card spot and quickly exited the playoffs at the hands of the Boston Red Sox in the...

Zach Britton brought his four-seamer back last year, but is there anything to it?

Coming into the offseason it was a matter of “when” the Yankees would add bullpen help, not “if.” David Robertson and Zach Britton both became free agents after the season and reports indicated the Yankees wanted to add two relievers to replace them. Makes sense, right? So far the Yankees have added one reliever. They […] The post Zach Britton brought his four-seamer back last year, but is there anything to it? appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
