Yankees potential trade partner: Chicago Cubs

Yankees potential trade partner: Chicago Cubs

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ Chicago’s North siders have quickly fallen out of contention, and find themselves as sellers, while the Yanks are in a buying mindset. The Yankees and Cubs have had a fairly rich trade history in recent years, striking several high-profile deals, the effects of which are still very apparent for both rosters. At last season’s deadline, New York acquired Anthony Rizzo in exchange for two prospects. There was, of course, the Aroldis Chapman rental that netted the Yankees Gleyber Torres, and even the deal that sent Starlin Castro to New York had...

Yankees At-Bat of the Week: Aaron Judge (6/23 and 6/26)

Yankees At-Bat of the Week: Aaron Judge (6/23 and 6/26)

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Judge racked up another two walk-offs in the series against Houston. This past week was highlighted by countless amazing at-bats from the New York Yankees. There was Aaron Hicks’ game-tying three-run home run in the ninth inning on Thursday and Anthony Rizzo’s unbelievable 16-pitch base on balls against Framber Valdez. I was ready to write about both of these at-bats, but when it came down to it I thought showing the well-deserved love to Aaron Judge’s two walk-offs could not be passed up. As if he could do any more than he...

Anthony Rizzo and lefty magic

Anthony Rizzo and lefty magic

Photo by Mark Blinch/ The Yankees have wanted a left-handed batter in the #3 spot forever. It looks like they’ve found their man I’m writing this on Friday morning, watching a replay of the Thursday walk-off win over the Astros, and a funny thing is occurring to me. The premise of this piece is how valuable Anthony Rizzo has been, not just in the lineup generally but in the three-hole specifically, and I was going to use his incredible, unbelievable, 16-pitch walk in the sixth inning as a framing device, but actually, I think its more appropriate to look at Aaron...

NYY @ TB: Gerrit Cole vs. Shane McClanahan

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ It’s a helluva pitching matchup tonight at the Trop. After a rare loss on Sunday afternoon to the Blue Jays that snapped their nine-game winning streak, the Yankees will look to start another one tonight in Tampa Bay. The Yankees and Rays squared off just last week at Yankee Stadium, with New York sweeping the series in a dramatic finish capped by Anthony Rizzo’s walk-off home run. This emphatic statement knocked Kevin Cash’s club back to a double-digit deficit in the AL East standings. Now, the two teams will go head-to-head just a few...

Looking back at the longest home winning streak in Yankees history

Looking back at the longest home winning streak in Yankees history

Photo by Transcendental Graphics/ With the Yankees now at 14 consecutive wins at Yankee Stadium, let’s look back at what they’re chasing for the longest home winning streak in franchise history. When Anthony Rizzo homered to win Thursday night’s game against the Rays, it extended a streak for this year’s Yankee team. The walk-off gave the Yankees their 14th straight home win, the longest such run for the franchise since 1961. They have not lost in the Bronx since May 23rd, when they dropped a game to the Orioles, of all teams. While this is far from a regular...

Rivalry Roundup: Mercy rule in Houston

Rivalry Roundup: Mercy rule in Houston

Photo by Bob Levey/ Baltimore blanks Tampa Bay; Red Sox stave off Cards; Astros wallop ChiSox; MadBum mystifies Minnesota The Yankees opened a big series last night against the second-place Blue Jays hoping to create even more separation in the standings. Well, they did that and then some, launching four home runs including an Anthony Rizzo grand slam en route to a 12-3 drubbing. They took care of business, but how about the rest of their AL rivals? Tampa Bay Rays (35-29) vs. Baltimore Orioles (29-37) I guess you could call this one a pitchers’ duel, though even...

Yankees 8, Cubs 0: Bombers stage their own personal home run derby

Photo by Mike Stobe/ The Yankees smashed six home runs as they cruised past the Cubs. While they eventually got the win, Friday night’s game was not exactly a strong display from the Yankees’ offense. They scored just two runs, having gone 1-for-19 with runners in scoring position. On Saturday, offense was not an issue. Up and down the lineup, Yankee hitters were crushing the ball, turning the game into their own personal home run derby. In total, they recorded six home runs on the day with Giancarlo Stanton, Gleyber Torres, Jose Trevino, Anthony Rizzo, and Aaron...

Cubs, Anthony Rizzo set to meet for first time since emotional trade

The image of Anthony Rizzo and his family taking farewell photos in front of the ivy-covered walls of Wrigley Field late last July are yet to fade from memory.

Anthony Rizzo and the difficulties of evaluating defense at first base

Anthony Rizzo and the difficulties of evaluating defense at first base

Photo by Daniel Shirey/MLB Photos via The defensive metrics don’t exactly love Rizzo’s glove this year, but they don’t really tell the whole story. Since he was acquired at the 2021 trade deadline, Anthony Rizzo has been a revelation for the Yankees. After experimenting with designated hitters and converted outfielders at first base for several years — and watching the team suffer because of it — Brian Cashman finally decided that he had at last seen enough and brought in a real first baseman for the first time since Mark Teixeira retired at the end of the...

Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton and Anthony Rizzo homer for Yankees in rout of Twins

Their run of outstanding pitching couldn’t last forever. The defense, which has been so solid this season, had an off night. So the Yankees did exactly what they were built to do.
