Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Yusei Kikuchi

If the Yankees are willing to take a risk on a player from outside of MLB, Kikuchi profiles as an intriguing gamble. The offseason has only just started in earnest, but the top of the pitching market is already being thinned out. After a long but ultimately fruitless dalliance with the best pitcher on the market, Patrick Corbin, and after watching Nathan Eovaldi return to the Red Sox, the Yankees have reportedly turned their gaze elsewhere for free agent pitching. J.A. Happ is the most obvious target, and Dallas Keuchel has been mentioned as well. One of the more intriguing ideas, however,...

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Craig Kimbrel

Would it make sense for the Yankees to sign the active leader in saves? In the past 13 years or so, the Yankees have signed multiple key, World Series-winning Red Sox when they’ve hit free agency. On one hand, there was the Johnny Damon signing. He gave the Yankees four solid seasons of lead-off hitting, culminating in the 2009 season, which ended in a championship. The other side of the coin is Jacoby Ellsbury. After a good first season, he’s fallen off a cliff, mainly due to injuries. It’s been over a year since he’s last played a game, and for all we know he may have lost an arm....

Today in Blue Jays history: Jays trade for Fred McGriff

36 Years Ago December 9, 1982 the Blue Jays made one of the best trades in team history. We sent reliever Dale Murray and minor leaguer Tom Dodd to the Yankees for outfielder Dave Collins, starter Mike Morgan and Fred McGriff. What we gave the Yankees: Todd Dodd never made it to the Yankees. they released him in 1983 and he went to the White Sox then the Orioles. He played in 8 games with the Orioles, 16 at bats, the total of him major league career. He did have a long minor league career, that included a season here in Calgary. He had a lot of power, hitting 206 home runs in 11 seasons,...

Signing Manny Machado is the Best Path to a Dominant Rotation

The Yankees did not sign this year’s top free agent starting pitcher: Patrick Corbin will instead have six tries to help the Washington Nationals win their first playoff series. Many Yankee fans, myself included, believed that Corbin represented the Yanks’ best path to creating a dominant rotation—but the reality is that he was never the […] The post Signing Manny Machado is the Best Path to a Dominant Rotation appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Could the Yankees make a deal with the Braves?

Both teams seem to match up perfectly with positions of need and trade bait. The free agency hot stove is picking up, but it looks like the Yankees are content with playing it safe at the moment. However, Brian Cashman’s squad still has some major holes to fill, namely starting pitching, the bullpen and infield depth. It is likely that he will look to finesse the trade market to address some of these needs. Meanwhile in Atlanta, all signs are pointing up. The Braves had a surprisingly solid 2018 season where they won the NL East and appear to be ahead of schedule. They even lured in one...

NYY News: Bombers miss out on Nasty Nate

Nathan Eovaldi takes his talents back to Boston; Where will the Yankees turn with another free agent pitcher off the board?; Carlos Carrasco signs extension, and raises trade value. New York Post | Mark W. Sanchez: In case you hadn’t heard, the Yankees missed out on another high-profile free agent. Former Yankee Nathan Eovaldi, coming off a star-turn for the Red Sox in the playoffs, re-signed with Boston for four years, $68 million. That’s certainly a nice pay-day for a pitcher with multiple Tommy John’s and a limited track record, but Eovaldi has talent, and it was on full display...

Door wide open for Yankees to pursue free agent Bryce Harper after Nats back down

For the Nationals, expectations are low when it comes to free agent Bryce Harper donning a curly white 'W' on his cap next season. So low, in fact, that Nationals owner Mark Lerner doesn't "expect [Harper] to come back at this point," he said Friday on 106.7 The Fan FM in Washington.

Starlin Castro is still here

The veteran second baseman seemed like a trade chip for the Marlins at last year’s MLB Winter Meetings. Will they find a contender to unload him to this time? Just stating the obvious: the Marlins never wanted Starlin Castro. The veteran second baseman was forced upon them in the Giancarlo Stanton trade. Though desperate to slash payroll, on the other side of the negotiating table, the Yankees had their own mission to get below MLB’s luxury tax threshold. Shipping out the expendable and moderately pricey Castro was a critical part of making the blockbuster work. I was of the opinion...

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Dallas Keuchel

The left-hander once overwhelmed the Yankees, but does that mean they should sign him? The Yankees have a long history of coveting arms that pitched well against them. A.J. Burnett, Randy Johnson, and David Wells jump to mind. You can even count Cliff Lee among that group, as the team tried its hardest to land the southpaw. By that logic, one would expect Dallas Keuchel to draw interest from the Bombers. In eight starts against them, he owns a 2.22 ERA with a 9.1 K/9 rate. With an open spot in the rotation after the Patrick Corbin non-signing, wouldn’t Keuchel make sense for the Yankees?...

The Yankees can’t afford to lose David Robertson and Zach Britton

The Yankees’ bullpen would look mighty thin without the return of at least one of these two reliable arms. News broke on Monday morning that the Boston Red Sox are heavily interested in free agent relievers David Robertson and Zach Britton. While it’s always alarming when the Red Sox have interest in ex-Yankees, it’s especially concerning that they want these two Yankees. The Bombers currently enjoy a position of strength over the Red Sox in terms of their bullpen; Boston swiping Robertson or Britton would cut into that strength. That said, Robertson and Britton do come with some...
