Yankees 0, Marlins 0: Spring training baseball!

Yankees 0, Marlins 0: Spring training baseball!

Photo by New York Yankees/ Not much happened down in Tampa on Thursday night. Every time you go to a ballgame, you have a chance to see something you’ve never seen before. I’m not going to say that today’s result was unique, but for the 8,361 people at Steinbrenner Field, it’s something you don’t see very often. The Yankees were held scoreless, but so were the Marlins, and in fine spring training form, today’s game ended in a 0-0 draw. One thing I really like about pitching prospect Clayton Beeter is how quickly he works. I was unable to watch this one...

Yankees 2024 Season Preview: Carlos Rodón

Photo by New York Yankees/ The lefty needs a rebound in 2024 like we need oxygen. Amid the Aaron Judge drama last offseason, the Yankees shelled out another nine-figure deal, a six-year, $162 million one to Carlos Rodón. He was coming off of two seasons as one of the most dominant pitchers in baseball, and earned that huge deal with the Yanks. Despite this, Rodón’s first season in pinstripes was a disaster. Between chronic injuries and downright bad performance, the left-hander needs a bounce back campaign in the worst way, and so do the Yankees. 2023 Stats: 14 GS,...
