Yankees, offense absolutely annihilate Rangers for a 21-5 victory

There are games where the offense does a pretty good job and there are ones where it absolutely explodes, and then some. Tonight falls into the latter category. After Chris Capuano gave up five runs in the first inning, the Yanks scored eleven in the second and, well, scored ten more later. The Yankees scored [...] Yankees, offense absolutely annihilate Rangers for a 21-5 victory is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Yankees, offense absolutely annihilate Rangers for a 21-5 victory appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DotF: Judge’s big day at the plate and in the field helps Scranton to a win

Quick note: Yankees prospects will play for the Surprise Saguaros in the Arizona Fall League this year, the league announced. They suited up for the Scottsdale Scorpions the last few years. They’ll share the team with Royals, Brewers, Cardinals, and Rangers prospects. Double-A Trenton pitching coach Jose Rosado will be Surprise’s pitching coach.

Game 99: Bullpen Game

In the interest of self-preservation, the Yankees are pushing everyone in their rotation back a day and using a spot sixth starter tonight. Except there’s no spot starter. It’s going to be a bullpen game — Chris Capuano and Adam Warren are expected to throw roughly 50 pitches each, then the rest of the relievers [...] Game 99: Bullpen Game is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Game 99: Bullpen Game appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Second base option off the board: Zobrist goes to Royals

The best second base option is officially off the board. The Athletics have traded Ben Zobrist to the Royals for pitching prospects Sean Manaea and Aaron Brooks, the club announced. Oakland is in full blown sell mode, having now traded Zobrist, Tyler Clippard, and Scott Kazmir. The Royals, meanwhile, are all-in with Zobrist and Johnny [...] Second base option off the board: Zobrist goes to Royals is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Second base option off the board: Zobrist goes to Royals appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thoughts four days prior to the 2015 trade deadline

The 2015 non-waiver trade deadline is just four days away now, and while the Yankees have not yet made any moves, I expect that to change fairly soon. Here are some stray trade deadline thoughts. 1. Boy that Troy Tulowitzki trade last night was something else, wasn’t it? Came out of nowhere. I assume the [...] Thoughts four days prior to the 2015 trade deadline is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Thoughts four days prior to the 2015 trade deadline appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Scouting The Trade Market: San Diego Padres

No team had a busier offseason than the Padres, who, under new GM A.J. Preller, made a handful of blockbuster trades and one big free agent signing. It didn’t work. The club comes into today with a 47-52 record and sub-5.0% postseason odds according to FanGraphs. I’m sure Preller was instructed by ownership to turn [...] Scouting The Trade Market: San Diego Padres is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Scouting The Trade Market: San Diego Padres appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread: Tuesday

We are now just four days away from the 2015 non-waiver trade deadline. The Yankees stretched their AL East lead to seven games with last night’s win — FanGraphs has their postseason odds at 93.8% — but they’re in no position to coast. Ivan Nova left last night’s start with “arm fatigue,” reinforcing the team’s [...] 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread: Tuesday is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post 2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread: Tuesday appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Holy Moly! Blue Jays reportedly acquire Troy Tulowitzki

Well this is a blockbuster. According to both Ken Rosenthal and Jon Heyman, the Blue Jays have acquired Troy Tulowitzki from the Rockies. No word on what Toronto is sending to Colorado, but I’m sure the package involves many top prospects. Wowza. More to come. Holy Moly!

DotF: Fowler has a big day in Tampa’s doubleheader

Got a whole bunch of notes to pass along: Keith Law (subs. req’d) caught Double-A Trenton over the weekend and said RHP Brady Lail “showed a solid-average fastball/curveball combination and pounded the zone all night … He’s a fair ground ball guy now who throws a lot of strikes, and could profile as a fifth [...] DotF: Fowler has a big day in Tampa’s doubleheader is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post DotF: Fowler has a big day in Tampa’s doubleheader appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees celebrate A-Rod’s 40th birthday with a 6-2 win over the Rangers

Happy birthday, A-Rod. Alex Rodriguez turned 40 on Monday and the Yankees celebrated with a crisp 6-2 win over his former team, the Rangers. They’ve won eight of ten games since the All-Star break and now have a season-high seven-game lead in the AL East. Their magic number to clinch the division is 58.

Game 98: The Big 4-0

Today is Alex Rodriguez‘s 40th birthday. He was only 28 years old when the Yankees originally got him in the trade with the Rangers. Man, time flies. The coolest part is that A-Rod is playing like a 28-year-old this year, at least at the plate. He doesn’t play the field anymore and running is a [...] Game 98: The Big 4-0 is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Game 98: The Big 4-0 appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

7/27 to 7/30 Series Preview: Texas Rangers

The road trip continues with a four-game series in Texas. The Yankees and Rangers have a lot of recent history (2010 ALCS) and not-so-recent history (1996, 1998, 1999 ALDS), which of course means nada this week. The Rangers swept three games from the Yankees in Yankee Stadium back in May in dominating fashion — they [...] 7/27 to 7/30 Series Preview: Texas Rangers is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post 7/27 to 7/30 Series Preview: Texas Rangers appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankeemetrics: All roads lead to Target Field (July 24-26)

NoWin-eda? The Yankees’ winning formula has been to score early and often, and thrash their opponents with lots of homers. The Twins took a page out of the Yankees playbook on Friday night, however, jumping out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning and hitting four home runs in their 10-1 victory. The nine-run [...] Yankeemetrics: All roads lead to Target Field (July 24-26) is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Yankeemetrics: All roads lead to Target Field (July 24-26) appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

2015 Trade Deadline Open Thread: Monday

The 2015 non-waiver trade deadline is this coming Friday at 4pm ET. The Yankees are currently 55-42 with a +34 run differential on the season, giving them a 6.5-game lead in the AL East. FanGraphs puts their postseason odds at a healthy 93.1%.
