Austin Jackson: Wasted Trade Bait or Bust? »

Hey bleacher report, its been a long time since my last post. I've been busy with many different things the last three of four months,so I haven't really had a chance to post anything on b/r. But now I'm back, at least for the next week or so to talk about whatever is going on in sports (except for Tiger Woods). So here's a little piece about yet [...]

Here’s a Thought: Sergio Mitre’s »

Yesterday, I took a look at the pitcher with the highest True ERA/ERA differential in the majors: Reds closer Francisco Cordero, whose 2.16 ERA was 2.70 runs lower than his 4.86 True ERA. If you'd like to take a look at the reasons for this discrepancy, you can check the article out here . Anyway, today I thought I'd look at the pitcher at the [...]

The 2009 New York Yankees: Sorry, Kids, but They »

In the weeks since the New York Yankees won their 27th World Series championship, the haters have been out in full force with the usual and increasingly tiresome cries of "They bought another championship!"  These cries almost overwhelmingly come from those under the age of 30, whose memories don't stretch back before 1996.  The conceit [...]

The New York Week That Was (Comebacks and Christmas) »

Christmas is all about comebacks and overcoming adversity against all odds. OK, it’s really nothing about comebacks and overcoming adversity against all odds, but is about love, peace on earth, goodwill toward men, opening presents, then drinking all day long and passing out underneath the tree as an ornament falls and pierces one of your [...]

Mike Pagliarulo’s Memories of Billy Martin »

With the 20th anniversary of Billy Martin’s death on Christmas evening 1989 upon us, it's a good time to look back on Martin's impact on the Yankees and his managing style. I recently put together a compilation of some of his former players talking about Martin , including my talk last year with Mike Pagliarulo about his time playing [...]

Misery?: Yankees, Giants, Mets, Jets, Knicks, and »

A survey of over 1.3 million people across the country has just been released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ranking the 50 states and Washington D.C. on how happy the residents of each locale are.  It used data collected over four years.  Out of the 51 states and D.C., New York came in last at 51st, Connecticut second [...]

Is Mark DeRosa Bronx-Bound If Yankees Don’t »

We have all been aware of the changes the Yankees made so far in the nearly two months removed since they won the 2009 World Series. They brought in Javier Vazquez, Nick Johnson, and Curtis Granderson, while Hideki Matsui and Phil Coke departed to other teams. As of right now, Johnny Damon's status is unknown. Some feel like he might be back with [...]

Will Jason Bay Be the New Johnny Damon in Boston? »

There's something cooking in New York and no, it's not the Mets. Melky Cabrera got shipped away to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for Javier Vazquez and he'll have his second stint in pinstripes. With Curtis Granderson as one of the newest outfielders for the Yankees this doesn't seem surprising, but with Hideki Matsui off to California (even [...]

What Did The Yankees Give Up For Javier Vazquez? »

By now, you have all heard about the Yankees deal for Javier Vazquez . Around the blogosphere, everyone has thoroughly analyzed Javier Vazquez and what we can expect from him. The general consensus is that the guy is pretty damn good, so I'll spare you my analysis. Instead, I'd like to take a look at what the Yankees gave up and how much [...]

New York Yankees: Unafraid To Mess With a Good Thing »

I must admit, I didn't foresee the Yankees being so busy this offseason. They are the World Series champions, after all. Unless you're the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals, this means you already are an excellent team. You've proven this, because, um, you won the World Series. The logical line of thought is to attempt to bring back the team in its [...]
