Thursday Night Open Thread

Your browser does not support iframes. The first day of the offseason is in the books. Only another 113 of these left to go until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training. The Yankees and Phillies did not play on this date in 2009 because it was a travel day between Games Two and Three, […] 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.

A-Rod reinstated, ten Yankees become free agents

Now that the World Series is over, Alex Rodriguez has officially been reinstated off the restricted list by MLB and the Yankees. He was originally suspended 211 games for his ties to Biogenesis, but it was reduced to 162 games during an appeal. A-Rod would not have been eligible to play in the postseason had […] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogA-Rod reinstated, ten Yankees become free agents The post A-Rod reinstated, ten Yankees become free agents appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

King: Yankees may have interest in Raul Ibanez for hitting coach job

Via George King: The Yankees may have been waiting until the end of the World Series to contact Raul Ibanez and “gauge his interest in becoming their hitting coach.” Ibanez was not on the Royals’ World Series roster but he was still traveling with the team and stuff. They kept him around for his leadership.

Thoughts at the end of the 2014 World Series

The Giants won their third World Series title in the last half-decade last night. If that’s not a dynasty in this parity filled age of baseball, I don’t know what is. They rode Madison Bumgarner’s left arm to the championship just like they rode Tim Lincecum in 2010 and Matt Cain in 2012. As good […] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogThoughts at the end of the 2014 World Series The post Thoughts at the end of the 2014 World Series appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

San Francisco Giants win 2014 World Series

For the third time in the last five years, the Giants are the World Series champions. They beat the Royals by the score of 3-2 in Game Seven tonight. Madison Bumgarner allowed two hits in five scoreless innings of relief to nail down the win. He was named series MVP after allowing one run in […] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogSan Francisco Giants win 2014 World Series The post San Francisco Giants win 2014 World Series appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Your browser does not support iframes. Five years ago tonight, the Yankees rallied to beat Pedro Martinez and even the 2009 World Series at one win apiece. Mark Teixeira hit a game-tying solo homer in the fourth and Hideki Matsui hit a go-ahead solo homer in the sixth. Jorge Posada singled in an insurance run […] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogWednesday Night Open Thread The post Wednesday Night Open Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2014 Season Review: Lefty rotation fodder

From 2009 through 2012, CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte were the only lefties to start games for the Yankees. That’s a little odd, considering the huge number of random lefties that got spot starts from 2004 through 2008. So odd, in fact, that I made a Sporcle quiz that no one has even the slightest […] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: Lefty rotation fodder The post 2014 Season Review: Lefty rotation fodder appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

FanGraphs’ contract crowdsourcing results for the top 55 free agents

On the eve of the offseason, FanGraphs’ released their contract crowdsourcing results for the top 55 free agents this coming offseason. Here’s the link. The crowd generally underestimated contract values for the top free agents last year, as the intro notes. Still, it’s a nice look at how a large group of people think these […] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogFanGraphs’ contract crowdsourcing results for the top 55 free agents The post FanGraphs’ contract crowdsourcing results for the top 55 free agents appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2014-2015 Offseason Calendar

One way or the other, the World Series and the 2014 baseball season will end tonight. The Royals blew the Giants out of the water in Game Six last night, a game that had a very Game Six of the 2001 World Series vibe. Hopefully Game Seven tonight is as exciting as Game Seven in […] Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014-2015 Offseason Calendar The post 2014-2015 Offseason Calendar appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
