The Yankees will be giving out 2,500 bobbleheads...

Trade Deadline Notes: Nats, Sabathia, Blue Jays, Pineda

The trade deadline is now only nine days away, and according to FanGraphs, the Yankees have a 9.6% chance to make the postseason. That’s not very good. Buster Olney (video link) said yesterday Aroldis Chapman could be dealt as soon as this weekend, though I’m not sure I buy that. “The Yankees are playing it smart and will likely take it to the end to get the most,” said an...

Don’t believe the calendar, the Yankees are running out of time

The schedule is a lie. Because while there are 66 games remaining in the season, the truth is that there are only eight until the Aug. 1 non-waiver trade deadline.

For A-Rod and the Yankees, something has to give

When a superstar entering his prime years signs a long-term contract, there’s the unspoken understanding that the end won’t be pretty. Beyond the glamorous picture painted by gaudy numbers early in the contract is the acceptance that the final years will be filled with regret. We all knew this when Albert Pujols signed his $240 million deal through his age-41 season, when Prince...

Aroldis Chapman ties MLB record with 105-mph fastball

Aroldis Chapman’s reputation as a certified flame thrower is well established, but that doesn’t mean we fail to be impressed whenever he throws the ball really, really hard. On Monday, he did just that. Chapman came in to close out a 2-1 win for the New York Yankees over the Baltimore Orioles, allowing just one walk while retiring the other three batters he faced. He threw a...
