Weekend Open Thread

Happy Friday everyone. Buster Olney (subs. req’d) continued looking at the top ten players at each position today with shortstop. Andrelton Simmons, not Troy Tulowitzki, claimed the top spot. That’s weird. A hundred games of Tulo is still more valuable than 162 games of any other shortstop these days. Current Yankees starting shortstop Brendan Ryan [...] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogWeekend Open Thread The post Weekend Open Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2014 Season Review: Foul Territory

We spend a lot of time here at RAB — like, a ridiculous amount of time — talking about the Yankees and being super serious about stuff. Moves have to be discussed and performances need to be analyzed. This is serious business. If you’re looking for more of that this afternoon, this isn’t the post [...] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: Foul Territory The post 2014 Season Review: Foul Territory appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

There’s no comfort on that ground.

Thursday Night Open Thread

Buster Olney (subs. req’d) continued his look at the top ten players at each position yesterday with second base. Robinson Cano sits in the top spot because of course. He is far and away the best second basemen in baseball and has been for about five years now. The Yankees don’t have a player on [...] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogThursday Night Open Thread The post Thursday Night Open Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2014 Season Review: Miscellaneous Arms

Thirty-three different players pitched in at least one game for the Yankees this past season — including Dean Anna! — the second most in baseball behind the Rangers, who somehow trotted 40 different players out to the mound. That’s the most pitchers the Yankees have used in a single-season in their history, five more than [...] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: Miscellaneous Arms The post 2014 Season Review: Miscellaneous Arms appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2014 Season Review: Chris Young and the Extra Outfielders

As is the case every season, the Yankees cycled through several extra players in the outfield in 2014 to help cover for injuries and soak up spare innings in September. There weren’t as many random outfielders as their were random infielders, but there were more than I realized. Here’s the group. Chris Young After he [...] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: Chris Young and the Extra Outfielders The post 2014 Season Review: Chris Young and the Extra Outfielders appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
