No Yankees among 2014 Gold Glove finalists

Rawlings announced the 2014 Gold Glove finalists earlier today, and, somewhat surprisingly, no Yankees were among the players selected. Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury were their best Gold Glove candidates but neither made it. Alex Gordon, Yoenis Cespedes, and Michael Brantley are the left field finalists while Jackie Bradley Jr., Adam Eaton, and Adam Jones […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogNo Yankees among 2014 Gold Glove finalists The post No Yankees among 2014 Gold Glove finalists appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2014 Season Review: Broken at 1B without a backup

How durable was Mark Teixeira when the Yankees signed him after the 2008 season? Since his debut in 2003 he’d played in fewer than 145 games just once, when he appeared in 132 in 2007. He’d been on the DL just twice, totaling 41 games. Even after he joined the Yankees, Teixeira stayed on the […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: Broken at 1B without a backup The post 2014 Season Review: Broken at 1B without a backup appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees could get more help from within in 2015

In yesterday’s Season Review post, I noted Shane Greene was a big player development success for the Yankees, who turned an under-scouted (due to Tommy John surgery) right-hander into a bonafide Major Leaguer with a 15th round pick, a $100k bonus, and patience. They haven’t had enough success stories like that, so much so that […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogYankees could get more help from within in 2015 The post Yankees could get more help from within in 2015 appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2014 Season Review: The Greene Monster

The Yankees were saddled with a ton of position player injuries last year, including Mark Teixeira‘s wrist, Curtis Granderson‘s forearm (and hand), and Derek Jeter‘s ankle. The result was far too much playing time for guys like Lyle Overbay, Vernon Wells, and Eduardo Nunez. The offense stunk. It was a lot worst than it was […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Season Review: The Greene Monster The post 2014 Season Review: The Greene Monster appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

MLBTR’s Projected Arbitration Salaries for 2015

At this time last season, the Yankees were still talking about getting under the $189M luxury tax threshold for the 2014 season. It was definitely doable, but it would have been very difficult, especially since the team wanted to contend at the same time. Eventually the Yankees abandoned their luxury tax plan and they didn’t […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogMLBTR’s Projected Arbitration Salaries for 2015 The post MLBTR’s Projected Arbitration Salaries for 2015 appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
