New York Yankees

Yankees left field
Jeremy Breland - Dec 19, 2022

To put it plainly, left field is a spot of concern for the New York Yankees. With Aaron Judge in right and Harrison Bader in center, two-thirds of the outfield looks great. However, the battle for left field is between internal and external options. The two main internal options include Aaron Hicks and Oswaldo Cabrera. […]

It’s that time of year again. Along with awards week, free agency is often something most fans and analysts mark on their calendars. It’s always interesting to see what rumors might surface regarding one of your team’s best free agents. One of the ten best free agents is already off the board as Edwin Díaz […]

Yankees Cashman
Lewis Masella - Nov 11, 2022

After another postseason exit at the hands of the Houston Astros, the New York Yankees find themselves at a crossroads. Longtime general manager Brian Cashman’s contract is up, and early indications suggest he will return. However, the team needs to look in the mirror and carefully consider whether Cashman should come back. The Yankees have […]

Yankees swept Astros
Lewis Masella - Oct 29, 2022

The postseason hopes of the New York Yankees came crashing down in the blink of an eye last week. After a tough ALDS against the Cleveland Guardians, the Yankees were swept by the Houston Astros in four games. The team’s World Series drought now stretches to 13 seasons. In that time, New York has not […]

World Series MVP

Starting in 1955, MLB began to give out an award for a player who had the most impact on his team’s performance in the World Series. It’s an exclusive club, but some MVPs had a more decisive impact than others. It’s not just about the individual contribution but the bigger context of the Series altogether. […]

Yankees outlast Guardians
Lewis Masella - Oct 19, 2022

The Bronx Bombers are moving on. In a hard-fought five-game ALDS, the New York Yankees managed to outlast the Cleveland Guardians thanks to outstanding starting pitching, timely homers, and clutch (enough) relief pitching. Despite a .182 team batting average, New York’s 9–3 advantage in home runs was a key difference maker. The Guardians proved to […]

All this record-breaking business gets one’s gears turning. When Aaron Judge hit his 62nd home run on October 4th, 2022, he broke Roger Maris’ American League single-season home run record of 61 set in 1961. We’re all pretty much caught up on that, right? Good, so let’s go back a bit, then forward, then way […]

Yankees Roster
Jeremy Breland - Oct 11, 2022

The New York Yankees are facing the Cleveland Guardians in the postseason for the third time in the last six years. The Guardians just completed a two-game sweep of the Tampa Bay Rays in the Wild Card series. Meanwhile, the Yankees have had plenty of decisions to make regarding their roster for the Division Series. […]

Yankees Chapman ALDS
Lewis Masella - Oct 11, 2022

The New York Yankees announced on Sunday that they will go without ex-closer Aroldis Chapman for the ALDS. After Chapman failed to show up for a mandatory workout, manager Aaron Boone said Chapman would not be on the team’s ALDS roster. The 34-year old lefty, who lost the closer role earlier this season, reportedly did […]

Yankees win AL East
Lewis Masella - Sep 30, 2022

The latest series for the New York Yankees had no shortage of memorable moments. Despite a tough loss to start, they bounced back the next night for a 5–2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. With this victory, the Yankees won the AL East title. However, that wasn’t even the biggest highlight of the series. […]

Home Run Leaders

The home run leaders since 2017 are surprising at best. Each player’s home run is enough for people to witness one of the most thrilling moments in a baseball game. The all-time home run record in a season is 73, held by Barry Bonds in 2001. But before Bonds, there was a home run chase […]

Collin Carofano - Sep 22, 2022

Albert Pujols and Aaron Judge are two players on different paths. But, baseball fans get to witness each player chase a historic milestone that will mark their names in the Hall of Fame. Both players are both two home runs away from those special achievements. Pujols is sitting at 698 career home runs, whereas Judge […]

home runs
Lewis Masella - Sep 21, 2022

The Bambino officially has company. New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge tied Babe Ruth’s single-season high of 60 home runs in a 9–8 comeback win over the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday night in the Bronx. The total is the second most in American League history. Judge is now breathing down the neck of fellow Yankee Roger […]

Youngest Shortstops

Hitting three home runs in a game is a remarkable accomplishment, especially for young shortstops. It’s frequently compared to the rarity of a no-hitter, triple plays or even four home run games. However, what’s rare are the youngest shortstops who have homered three times in a game. Only five players have done it, with one […]

Aaron Judge
Terron Morris - Sep 5, 2022

Aaron Judge has carried the New York Yankees all season. Judge did so again by winning a game Sunday afternoon against division foes, the Tampa Bay Rays. The Yankees are coming off their worst month of baseball since 1991. September didn’t get New York off to a good start, either. Hopes started high, though, as […]

Canada has produced a plethora of MLB talent over the past two centuries. Many fans of America’s pastime would be surprised how many of their favorite players were born in Canada. Over 200 Canadians have made their mark in baseball. That includes two Cy Young Award winners, three MVPs, four batting titles, 11 Silver Slugger […]

Wisconsin is best known as America’s Dairyland, but it also has a rich sports culture. Although winter sports such as football and hockey are generally more popular, the Badger State owns its fair share of baseball history. The Milwaukee Braves brought the state its first World Series title in 1957. The Braves’ stint in Milwaukee […]

The Toronto Blue Jays have been a significant part of baseball since 1977. The Blue Jays have stories that include iconic playoff moments from Joe Carter in 1993 to Jose Bautista in 2015. Not to mention two World Series titles and nine playoff appearances. But, there’s more to it than just that- former Blue Jays […]

Rockies 2023 Success
Brandon Willman - Aug 28, 2022

The Colorado Rockies will not be competitive in 2023. The team won’t be close to winning the NL West division, nor will they even have a chance of a playoff berth. Betting odds do not have the team going to the playoffs or even playing .500 baseball. According to Vegas Insider, the Rockies have an […]

Ken Griffey Jr. For Babe Ruth
Benjamin Sabin - Aug 28, 2022

How does this sound for the ultimate trade: Ken Griffey Jr. for Babe Ruth? Never happen right? Ken Griffey Jr. was born on November 21, 1969, and Babe Ruth died on August 16, 1948, so there’s that. Also, Ruth played in his last big league game on May 30, 1935, and Griffey played in his […]

The Montreal Expos were an important part of Major League Baseball’s history. As the first Canadian franchise and first team in a French-speaking area, it brought in new fans. All-time greats like Randy Johnson, Vladimir Guerrero, Pete Rose, and Andre Dawson played for them. Even players such as Russell Martin and Eric Gagne may not […]

The state of Washington is known for many things. Beautiful mountain scenery, the Space Needle, and one of the most consistently top-rated college basketball programs in the nation. That said, we are not here to divulge which Gonzaga player is best, or which of the many Seattle-based coffeehouses serves the best cup of joe. No, […]
