Last night, news we all knew would probably break broke. Eric Chavez re-signed with the Yankees for the 2012 season, agreeing to a small, incentive-laden deal to backup Alex Rodriguez and DH on occasion. In doing so, he unofficially closed the book on an exciting 2012 off-season. Per MLB Trade Rumors:
The Yankees [...]
I’m going to come right out and say it: the Yankees have a glaring hole on their big league roster and have for quite some time. No, this is not a new weakness, but it is a weakness that has become increasingly noticeable and yet one this organization does not appear ready to deal with. [...]
Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. Glad you all survived Monday and are joining us bright and early here at TYA. Today’s mailbag question comes courtesy of Travis:
Hope everyone’s enjoying the Fourth of July safely! Anyway, onto the events of the weekend.
1. Way to go, Bartolo Colon! I didn’t get to watch any of this because I was with friends for the day, but everything about the start just sounds fantastic. 6 IP, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 [...]
Right now, Derek Jeter is on pace to rejoin the Yankees on Monday. The Yankees will have a choice, though I’m not sure they’ll consider it so, on whom to option back to AAA Scranton-Wilkes Barre. Jeter will obviously take his spot back at shortstop (and atop the Yankee lineup) leaving one [...]
Last week, Baseball Prospectus came out with their injury projections so I’ll offer some brief commentary on what they could mean for each player and the team. When I have some more free time, I’ll go more deeply into this issue, using WAR projections and all, but for now, with my mind still at [...]
Yesterday afternoon, we learned that the Yankees were going to try Eduardo Nunez in the outfield. The game wasn’t on TV so I obviously didn’t catch how he looked, but I can’t blame the Yankees for trying. Nunez can play a decent enough shortstop so we can reasonably infer that he could at [...]
CAIRO is the projection system set up by SG, the man behind the curtain over at Replacement Level Yankee Weblog. Since it’s pretty dead out there right now, I figured we could take a look at some bench candidates and how they might project in 2011.
The Yankees are on the cusp of signing veteran outfielder Andruw Jones to be the team’s first OF off of the bench. They signed Russell Martin to be the starting catcher for now, with Francisco Cervelli as the back up, and Jesus Montero on the way up. Jorge Posada will be the primary DH and [...]
Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News ran a piece today in which he graded the Yankees. I’m going to tell you which ones I agree and disagree with.
Let’s just get the ones I agree with out of the way. I agree with Mo’s, Andy’s, Gardner’s, CC’s, Marte’s, Rodriguez’s, Thames’s, Vazquez’s, Burnett’s, [...]
