Yankees 0, Cardinals 1: Offense falls asleep in Monty revenge game

Yankees 0, Cardinals 1: Offense falls asleep in Monty revenge game

Photo by Joe Puetz/ The Yankees’ once rotation stalwart helped lead the Cardinals to a shutout victory. It would’ve been hard to script a more straightforward storyline for tonight’s contest. Jordan Montgomery, just five days removed from his surprising trade to St. Louis, would not only take the mound against his former team, but against Domingo Germán, the man ostensibly tasked with holding Montgomery’s former rotation spot in the Bronx. Immediately, the Yankees’ decision to trust Germán, and their pitching depth more broadly, would be tested. Montgomery...

NYY at STL: Domingo Germán vs. Jordan Montgomery

Photo by Joe Puetz/ Just five days after being shipped to St. Louis, Jordan Montgomery takes the mound against the only team he’s ever known. In a strange twist of fate, Jordan Montgomery’s first MLB appearance in a non-Yankee uniform will come against the Yankees. Eight years after having been drafted by the Yankees, and just five days after having swapped for Harrison Bader in one of the most surprising deals of Brian Cashman’s tenure, Monty takes the mound in St. Louis as a member of the Cardinals. Typically, we’d use this space to quickly analyze the day’s...

Harrison Bader will fill a hole the Yankees have had for years

Harrison Bader will fill a hole the Yankees have had for years

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports Bader will be the best defensive center fielder this team has had in a decade. The Jordan Montgomery trade was genuinely a shocker. In my opinion, he had been one of the most reliable starting pitchers in Major League Baseball since the beginning of 2021. He has command of all his pitches. His upside isn’t sexy, but there is much value to be had in pitcher who can put up 2.5-3.5 WAR with reliability. He was drafted by the team and came up through the minor leagues as a pleasant surprise. He was easy to root for. All that said, I believe...

Photo by Dilip Vishwanat/ A Saturday in St. Louis. It’s been just five days since the Yankees sent Jordan Montgomery to St. Louis, but as fate would have it, the lefty’s first start in a different uniform will come today against the Yankees. It’s sure to be a surreal sight, Montgomery in the Cardinals’ white and red staring down the likes of Aaron Judge and Gleyber Torres. Ahead of the primetime matchup, you can catch up on last night’s AL action, and peruse Sam’s ranking of the most exciting Yankees’ trade deadlines of recent vintage. Esteban will also...

The Yankees should get creative with Germán and the rotation

The Yankees should get creative with Germán and the rotation

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ With the fifth rotation spot, should the Yankees go with a bullpen game or use Domingo Germán as a starter? The Yankees are in a bit of a weird place with their starting rotation right now. With Luis Severino on the injured list and Jordan Montgomery traded, the fifth rotation spot seemingly belongs to Domingo Germán. That is not ideal in a lot of ways. He has proven over the course of five seasons that he is a middling at best starter in the major leagues. In his five seasons, he has averaged a 4.60 ERA over 354.0 innings with 381 strikeouts. In...

New York Yankees vs. St. Louis Cardinals: Series Preview

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The Yanks will face Jordan Montgomery’s Cardinals for a weekend series in St. Louis The Yankees, predictably, are not playing at a 120-win pace anymore. As a result, they can no longer say they have the best record in baseball: At 70-33, that honor belongs to the Los Angeles Dodgers. That doesn’t mean the 70-36 Yanks are suddenly a bad ballclub, even after going 18-18 in their last 36 games. They remain an elite squad, and will try to snap a two-game losing streak when they visit the St. Louis Cardinals for a three-game set starting tonight at...

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Your preview after a needed off-day. A day off was probably in order for the Yankees, after a poor showing in the series with Seattle. They traveled yesterday to face the Cardinals, and a matchup with forced turncoat Jordan Montgomery looms this weekend. In the series opener, we’ll see Nestor Cortes square off with right-hander Dakota Hudson. On the site, get your morning started with Andrew’s review of last night’s AL action, and a preview of the series in St. Louis from Andrés. John also writes about how the Yankees are in need of a...

PSA Podcast Ep. 165: Up and Down Play, Up and Down Deadline

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The Yankees are a better team than two weeks ago, but middling ball from July has continued and one move left us scratching our heads. What a strange couple days, huh? As the Trade Deadline crept to a close, the Yankees made some notable moves. The Frankie Montas, Lou Trivino, and Scott Effross additions were met with near-universal praise, and getting a minor pitching prospect in exchange for Joey Gallo wasn’t too shabby either. However, the decision to flip steady starter Jordan Montgomery for injured outfielder Harrison Bader was met with...

Recapping the trade deadline moves from the AL East

Photo by Mike Ehrmann/ It was a busy couple days across pretty much the entirety of the AL East. The trade deadline season ended up being quite a busy one for the Yankees. In total, they ended up acquiring Andrew Benintendi, Scott Effross, Frankie Montas, Lou Trivino, and Harrison Bader, while shipping out Joey Gallo and Jordan Montgomery, in one unsurprising deal and another very surprising one. While we have, can, and will continue to debate those various moves, let’s take a look at the picture beyond the Yankees. Let’s dive into what the rest of the AL East did...

Today on Pinstripe Alley - 8/4/22

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ A much-needed off-day arrives. The trade deadline brought plenty of new Yankees to the team, but also some bad vibes when it ended with the surprise trade of Jordan Montgomery. Perhaps the locker room was a little rattled, perhaps not, but they went out and dug themselves an early hole that they couldn’t come back from for the second straight day, losing the series to the Mariners in the process. Gerrit Cole was the offender in this one, getting tagged for six runs in the first inning, and even though he settled down and gave the team six innings...
