New York Yankees Prospect Profile: Zach McAllister, »

Zach McAllister was born on Dec. 8, 1987 and grew up in the town of Chillicothe in Illinois. He was drafted out of high school by the New York Yankees in the third round of the 2006 draft. When drafted, McAllister's size stood out. The guy is just built like a starting pitcher. He stands 6'6" tall and weighs 230 pounds, although his weight has [...]

Phil Hughes Is Named the Fifth Starter for the New »

The New York Post's Joel Sherman , among others, is reporting that Joe Girardi has officially named Phil Hughes as the Yankees' fifth starter. This has been heavily debated over the course of spring training, but I'm still not sure what the Yankees plan was here. They have seemingly been building Joba Chamberlain up so that he could have the [...]

How the New York Yankees Could’ve Kept Chad »

The Yankees placed Chad Gaudin on waivers today, and I'm not sure that was the right course of action. After this move, it looks like the bullpen will shape up as follows: Mariano Rivera Joba Chamberlain/Phil Hughes Alfredo Aceves David Robertson Damaso Marte Chan Ho Park Sergio Mitre Chamberlain, Hughes, Aceves, and Robertson all have options [...]

Phil Hughes or Joba Chamberlain: Should Yankees Send »

The primary line of thought is that the Yankees pitcher that loses the fifth starter battle will be used as the primary eighth inning pitcher. This is likely to be the case, but is that the right decision? Could Joba Chamberlain or Phil Hughes use more development against Triple-A hitters? With Hughes, I think the answer is an obvious no. He has a [...]

The Yankees’ Fifth Starter Competition and »

The biggest question regarding the 2010 Yankees right now is undoubtedly who should win the fifth starter job. I have largely stayed away from the topic, since I'm sure you all are sick of hearing the same things over and over again. So, instead of debating who should win the fifth starter job, I'd like to take a look at what the Yankees need from [...]

Hector Noesi, RHP: Prospect Profile »

Hector Noesi was signed by the Yankees out of the Dominican Republic in 2005 and debuted in the Gulf Coast League at 19-years-old in 2006. He promptly missed most the 2007 season after undergoing Tommy John Surgery. Noesi is a guy who, due to his age and injuries, managed to stay away from the prospect radar before the 2009 season. Looking at his [...]

Major League Baseball: Finding a Market Inefficiency »

While running a major league team, there are only so many ways you can gain a real advantage. Having more capital then your opponent is the easiest way, but teams continually look for other ways to better themselves at an inexpensive price. This is termed a market inefficiency. Basically, the best thing a team can do is find something of value [...]

Marcus Thames Or Jamie Hoffmann For The New York »

Because the fifth outfielder is just that important. The two players are both right-handed hitters, but that is about the extent of their similarities. They both have their fair share of strengths and weaknesses, but the Yankees only have room for one on their roster. Marcus Thames's biggest strength is his power. For his career, he has hit a home [...]

Randy Johnson Retires with Yankee Tenure as His Only »

Randy Johnson is a great pitcher who should be a first ballot Hall of Famer. There is no arguing that point. He had some of the most dominant seasons of all time and continued to be an effective starting pitcher even during the twilight of his career. This is not how he is thought of in Yankee lore. The two seasons Randy Johnson spent in New York [...]

New York Yankees Drafts By Career Wins Above »

In case you are not familiar with the WAR statistic, it stands for Wins Above Replacement and while the numbers behind it are a bit complex, the idea is simple. Basically, it is just how much value a player produces compared to what a replacement level player would produce. A replacement level player is basically a valueless commodity that can be [...]
