According to a Tweet from Jon Paul Morosi last night, the New York Yankees had scouts in attendance of the San Diego Padres/Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field. The Yankees have already broken Padres’ fans’ hearts earlier this week, giving up a utility infielder and a minor league power arm in exchange for third baseman […] Are The Yankees Coming Back To The Padres’ Well Again? - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Yankees have won two straight games — one in extra innings, one shortened by rain — and five of six since the All-Star break. They had to come out of the gate strong and take advantage of this ten-game second half-opening homestand, and so far they’ve done that. One more game with the worst […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogGame 101: Finish Them Off The post Game 101: Finish Them Off appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The draft signing deadline was last Friday, and the Yankees were able to sign everyone they were expected to sign. There were no surprises, good or bad. Because they didn’t have a first round pick (or a supplemental round pick), this wasn’t the most exciting draft for the Yankees, who went heavy on college pitching […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2014 Post-Draft Top 30 Prospects The post 2014 Post-Draft Top 30 Prospects appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Tonight’s game has officially been called due to rain, so the Yankees have beaten the Rangers by the score of 2-1 after four and a half innings. The umpires, Joe Girardi, and Ron Washington all agreed the field was unsafe to continue playing after the grounds crew had trouble getting the tarp on the infield.

Matt Eddy (no subs. req’d) went back and ranked the most productive drafts of the last ten years. The 2004 Astros, led by Hunter Pence and Ben Zobrist, claim the top spot. The 2005 Yankees are eighth thanks mostly to Brett Gardner and Austin Jackson. I’m surprised the 2006 Yankees draft didn’t make the list.

I could totally go for a blowout win tonight. Like nine or tens run in the first two or three innings, then go into cruise control and let the just called up Chris Leroux get one of those silly three-out saves. It’s been a long time since the Yankees had a laugher like that — […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogGame 100: How About An Easy Win?

MLB announced the results of the competitive balance lottery today, awarding a total of 12 picks to small market, low revenue clubs. Obviously the Yankees did not get one. The full results are right here. It’s hard to understand a system in which the Cardinals are awarded competitive balance picks but not the Rays or […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blog2015 Draft: MLB announces competitive balance lottery results The post 2015 Draft: MLB announces competitive balance lottery results appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

The non-waiver trade deadline is now one week and one day away, and we’ve got a pretty good idea of which teams will be sellers and which will be buyers. The Yankees, like or not, will be buying. Yesterday’s Chase Headley trade confirmed that. They’re 1.5 games out of a playoff spot in Derek Jeter‘s […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogScouting The Trade Market: Minnesota Twins The post Scouting The Trade Market: Minnesota Twins appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
The Yankees have placed Kelly Johnson on the 15-day disabled list with a left groin strain, the team announced. Right-hander Chris Leroux was called up from Triple-A Scranton to replace him on the roster. Bruce Billings was designated for assignment to clear a 40-man spot for Leroux. Johnson left last night’s game with what was […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogYankees place Kelly Johnson on 15-day DL, recall Chris Leroux The post Yankees place Kelly Johnson on 15-day DL, recall Chris Leroux appeared first on River Avenue Blues.
Carlos Beltran started a new throwing program yesterday, Joe Girardi told Chad Jennings. Once he is able to throw without discomfort due to the bone spur in his elbow, the Yankees can resume playing him in right field rather than at DH everyday. Beltran, 37, started a throwing program a few weeks ago but had […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogCarlos Beltran resumes throwing program The post Carlos Beltran resumes throwing program appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Yesterday we looked at the pitchers the Phillies could offer at the trade deadline, and they have two gems in Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee. Now let’s look at the position players. Philadelphia doesn’t have any impact position players to trade — Chase Utley has already said he would use his no-trade clause to remain […]Post from: River Ave. Blues A New York Yankees blogScouting The Trade Market: Phillies’ Position Players The post Scouting The Trade Market: Phillies’ Position Players appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Just when I thought these Yankees couldn’t get any worse, they go and do something like this … AND TOTALLY REDEEM THEMSELVES! Seriously, that was the worst best game of the year. I loved it and hated it at the same time. The Yankees won but really, we all still lost in a way.
