2014 Season Review: Better than nothing from the keystone?

Not gonna lie: The original title of this season review was “Nothing from the keystone.” It sure seemed that way, given that Stephen Drew and Brian Roberts combined for 458 of 631 total PA from the position. Add in Brendan Ryan for another 42 and it looks like a downright disaster. Then I saw this, […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: Better than nothing from the keystone?

Thoughts before the start of the World Series

The World Series finally starts tonight after four baseball-less days. That felt like an eternity. My official prediction is Royals in six for no apparent reason. It’s a total guess. More than anything, I want a long and exciting series that goes the full seven games. Both the LDS and LCS rounds were a blast.

2014 Season Review: The Perfect Fit Who Didn’t Fit

On paper, signing Kelly Johnson to a one-year contract worth $3M last offseason made perfect sense for the Yankees. They had questions at both second and third bases, plus he’s a dead pull left-handed hitter who figured to take advantage of Yankee Stadium’s short right field porch. When Robinson Cano signed with the Mariners a […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: The Perfect Fit Who Didn’t Fit The post 2014 Season Review: The Perfect Fit Who Didn’t Fit appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
