8/28 to 8/30 Series Preview: Atlanta Braves

Time for some more interleague play. The Yankees open a three-game series with the Braves in Atlanta tonight. This is their first visit to Turner Field since 2012, when they swept three games. The Yankees are 11-2 all-time at Turner Field, including the postseason. This is the only series of the season between these two […] The post 8/28 to 8/30 Series Preview: Atlanta Braves appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Friday chat reminder

Happy Friday, folks. The Yankees had an off-day yesterday after wrapping up a disappointing ten-game homestand, and tonight they start a six-game road trip through Atlanta and Boston. So I guess we have a lot to talk about. Chat starts at 2:30pm ET. See you then. The post Friday chat reminder appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Mailbag: Eovaldi, Dellin, Warren, Walker, Gamel, Umpires

Got a dozen questions in this week’s mailbag and some of the answers are longer than usual. So this is an extra large mailbag. The “For The Mailbag” form is gone from the sidebar and won’t return. If you want to send us a mailbag question, email us at RABmailbag (at) gmail (dot) com. The […] The post Mailbag: Eovaldi, Dellin, Warren, Walker, Gamel, Umpires appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DotF: Ackley doubles in first minor league rehab game

Got a bunch of notes to pass along, via Chad Jennings, Bryan Hoch, and Brendan Kuty: C Gary Sanchez suffered a hamstring injury running out a double play ball last night and has been placed on the Triple-A Scranton DL. Sanchez was on track to be the third catcher when rosters expand Tuesday. Stinks. Consider […] The post DotF: Ackley doubles in first minor league rehab game appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thursday Night Open Thread

Your browser does not support iframes.The Yankees have an off-day today, so check out this Billy Witz article on the bullpen revolving door. The Yankees have been shuttling relievers back and forth between the big leagues and Triple-A Scranton all season, and these are real people whose lives change in an instant. The actual call-up/send-down […] The post Thursday Night Open Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankees send Nick Goody down to Triple-A Scranton

Following yesterday’s game, the Yankees sent Nick Goody back down to Triple-A Scranton, the team announced. He had been called up prior to the game to give the bullpen a fresh arm. Goody threw 20 pitches in a scoreless ninth inning yesterday, which is apparently all the Yankees needed from him. Goody, 24, has ridden […] The post Yankees send Nick Goody down to Triple-A Scranton appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Poll: The Designated Pinch-Runner in September

Five days from now teams will be able to expand their rosters and carry up to 40 active players. I can’t remember a team ever carrying the maximum 40 players, but they can do so if they choose. The Yankees are planning to be aggressive with their September call-ups and get them on the roster […] The post Poll: The Designated Pinch-Runner in September appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yankeemetrics: 4 runs, 3 games, 2 losses (Aug. 24-26)

Naaaaaasty Nate The Yankees got their 69th victory of the season in bizarre fashion on Monday night against the Astros — their only run came on a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning, which gave them the rare 1-0 walk-off victory. Since sacrifice flies became an official statistic in 1954, this […] The post Yankeemetrics: 4 runs, 3 games, 2 losses (Aug. 24-26) appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Thoughts following the ten-game homestand

The Yankees lost five of the final seven games on their just completed ten-game homestand, and tomorrow they’ll open a three-game series against the lowly Braves. Atlanta is the worst offensive team in baseball (3.65 runs per game) and the Yankees haven’t hit for close to a month now, so maybe this will be the […] The post Thoughts following the ten-game homestand appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DotF: Amburgey homers again in Staten Island’s loss

LHP Josh Rogers was named the 25th best prospect in the Cape Cod League today by Baseball America (subs. req’d). “His three-pitch mix and strike-throwing ability give him a chance to become a back-of-the-rotation starter,” said the write-up. The Yankees selected Rogers in the 11th round of this year’s draft and gave him an above […] The post DotF: Amburgey homers again in Staten Island’s loss appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Wednesday Night Open Thread

Your browser does not support iframes.Here is your open thread for the evening. The Mets are playing tonight and MLB Network will air a few regional games. Also, ESPN will show the Cubs and Giants late tonight, if you’re interested. The Cubbies have won 21 of their last 25 games, you know. Talk about those […] The post Wednesday Night Open Thread appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Offense breaks out for two runs, Yanks lose 6-2 to Astros in Pineda’s return anyway

Thank goodness for the Twins, huh? After starting this ten-game homestand with a sweep of Minnesota, the Yankees had to settle for a split. Five wins, five losses. They dropped three of four to the Indians over the weekend and two of three to the Astros this week. Houston won Wednesday afternoon’s series finale by […] The post Offense breaks out for two runs, Yanks lose 6-2 to Astros in Pineda’s return anyway appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Link: Brian Cashman profile in Sports Illustrated

Last weekend, I passed along a quick story about Brian Cashman telling Derek Jeter he would rather have Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop during the Yankees’ contract negotiations with their captain following the 2010 season. The story came from a recent Sports Illustrated profile of Cashman by S.L Price, which recently made its way online. The […] The post Link: Brian Cashman profile in Sports Illustrated appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Game 126: Big Mike Returns

This homestand has not been too great for the Yankees. Not terrible, but not great either. They’re 5-4 in the first nine games, which is fine, except the homestand started with a three-game sweep over the Twins. The Yankees then lost three of four to the last place Indians and have split the first two […] The post Game 126: Big Mike Returns appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
