The Wait For Aaron Hicks To Take A Step Forward

Two years ago the Yankees started their youth movement with an interesting strategy. They targeted talented young players who had fallen out of favor with their current organizations, and bought low on them in trades. That’s how they landed Didi Gregorius and Nathan Eovaldi. Dustin Ackley too. You win some, you lose some. The Yankees employed a similar strategy last offseason —...

Yo Soy Gary

We’ve been waiting a long time for this. For the Yankees to call up a tippy top prospect and get instant high-caliber production. Jesus Montero had a big September in 2011 and Joba Chamberlain did well out of the bullpen in 2007, but otherwise you have to go all the way back to Robinson Cano in 2005 for the last time the Yankees called up a young player and watched him dominate...

Part of what makes baseball so interesting is that the sport allows for completely inexplicable things to happen all the time.

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...
