Trade Deadline: Yankees Last Minute Rundown

It’s Thursday morning and we are just mere hours away from the 4pm trade deadline. This year the Yankees have been connected to some of the usual big names, along with some very under the radar guys. I have no doubt that general manager Brian Cashman will make at least one move at some point […]

Yankees game 107: Bats fall silent after early offense

New York Yankees 2 — Texas Rangers 3 Early offense enough for Texas Rangers to take the rubber match. To say Brett Gardner is swinging a hot bat would be an understatement. To open tonight’s game against the Rangers’ Colby Lewis, Brett Gardner hit his fourth home run in his last 10 at-bats. After two […]

Preparing for Michael Pineda’s Return

This year’s Yankees team seems to have the opposite problem than that of last year—instead of all the position players being injured, it’s been the pitchers who have spent the most time on the disabled list. It’s produced a similar result: through this point last season, the Yankees were 4 games over .500 and had been […]

BronxPinstripes’ Mid-season Top 15 Prospects

With injuries and under-performance running rampant through the Yankees farm system, this list is quite a shakeup from past prospect reports. Once thought to be top-5 prospects, the stars of Mason Williams and Slade Heathcott have fallen significantly. Another former top prospect, Rafael DePaula, is now in San Diego after being moved for Chase Headley. […]

Buy, Sell or Trade, What the Yankees are really doing

We are just about closing in on the July 31 4pm trade deadline, so far general manager Brian Cashman has done a good job with the patchwork moves he’s made. As we’ve seen so far there really isn’t a juicy market of players this season, again thanks to the addition of the second wild card […]

A-Rod turns 39 today, continues to stay quiet

The lightning rod of attention, Alex Rodriguez celebrates his 39 birthday today quietly and without much fanfare. Since his highly criticized fight with MLB and Bud Selig over the Biogenesis scandal, A-Rod has done a good job of lying low and staying out of the media this year. In taking the proper steps to return […]
