Meet the ex-Yankees with the gnarliest postseason beards

You’re not stunned that Andrew Miller went from the Yankee to the Indians in a July 31 trade and became the American League Championship Series Most Valuable Player, right? We saw how good he was as a Yankee. We knew the Indians were headed for the playoffs and, in Terry Francona, employ a manager who knows...

The Second Half Setup Men

The Yankees opened the season with maybe the most dominant bullpen trio in baseball history. For a few months a lead after six innings was close to an automatic win. Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller, and Aroldis Chapman protected basically every lead they were given. The Yankees weren’t very good overall, but they always had the advantage in the late innings. Things changed dramatically...

If Trump owned the Yankees...

We would reject the rigged 2016 AL East outcome.During games, we would seat opposing players' ex-wives behind the dugout. (Their current wives would sit in the Owner's Box, being groped.)We'd buy all players from China.Instead of a facial hair code, we'd have a hairstyle code.

Twenty eighteen... the year that matters

I hate to say it, but - unless Hal turns into Cher on buying free agents - 2017 looks like a tax write-off. Without a 2009-esque splurge - that is, we sign the likes of Encarnacion, Rich Hill and El Chapo - the Evils next year should again trend near .500 and probably jusssssssst miss yet another Wild Card.See for yourself. Without a large-scale Hal Mary money infusion, we must improve...

WATCH: Vin Scully opens Game 5 with signature line

The farewell tour for Vin Scully is unlike anything we have seen in modern sports. Sure, we’ve seen Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter’s goodbyes but the longevity and consistency in which Scully performed is almost unmatched. Performing solo in the booth for as long as he has is an accomplishment all by itself. Los Angeles loves him and more importantly, the Dodgers love him. He...

The Very Talented and Very Frustrating Michael Pineda

It’s hard to believe Michael Pineda just completed his fifth season with the Yankees. It still feels like he just got here. Of course, Pineda didn’t actually pitch in two of those five seasons because of his shoulder surgery, but still. The trade was five years ago. Man, time flies. That was such a wild day, the day of the trade. The Yankees hoped Pineda would emerge as an ace...

Starter or reliever: Yankees have time to decide on Dillon Tate

Dillon Tate has officially become quite the enigma as a pitcher. The righty with the electric arm was drafted as a starter by the Texas Rangers in 2015 and a year later was dealt away to the New York Yankees and put into the bullpen. Where he winds up is anyone’s guess. Tate was the highest player ever drafted out of UC Santa Barbara, selected fourth overall in the first round...

The Yankees’ Five Shortest Home Run of 2016

Yesterday we looked at the longest home runs hit by the Yankees hit in 2016, and now it’s time to go to the other extreme. Now we’re going to look back at the shortest home runs. The most laughable wall-scrapers of the season. These are the homers that make you feel like the Yankees just stole a run because the ball would have been caught at most other ballparks. Thanks to right...

The shift did Dellin Betances no favors in 2016

In most of the ways a pitcher can be great, Dellin Betances was in 2016. Despite having put together absolutely ridiculous seasons in 2014 and 2015 he set personal bests in K%, K-BB%, ground ball percentage, infield fly percentage and fastball velocity. In most cases, that makes for a career season, but that’s not how the big right-hander’s campaign will likely be remembered...
