Good morning! If you’re like me, this week started out promptly with the report that Aaron Hicks has signed a 7-year contract extension with the Yankees for a base of $70 million, according to friend-of-the-program Jack Curry. The terms of the contract begin this season, 2019. There is an eighth-year club option on the deal that is worth $12.5 million, so my quick math tells me the deal maxes out at 8-years, $82.5 million. The year-by-year breakdown, according to Joel Sherman: 2019: $6M salary, $2M signing bonus 2020-2023: $10.5 2024-2025: $9.5M 2026 team option: $12.5M or $1M buyout I have...

The offseason is far from finished, but Spring Training is now one month away, and there is a more than zero percent chance that the New York Yankees have completed their major offseason transactions. The team you start the season with is never the team you end the season with, but it is about time we project the opening day lineup if the season were to hypothetically start tomorrow. With Didi Gregorius out and Manny Machado and Bryce Harper seemingly out of the picture, who would be on that Opening Day 25-man crew? This is a long blog, so I'm...

Major League Baseball’s awards were finally announced this week. Let’s discuss how the Yankees fared! Gold Glove Award No Yankees were named Gold Glove Award winners. They had three finalists, though! Brett Gardner, Aaron Judge, and Masahiro Tanaka were among the three finalists in left field, right field, and the pitcher spots, respectively. Tanaka was the only one that I think had a real chance. I think he actually should have won. Judge was never going to beat out Mookie Betts. It was Betts’ year. Gardner maybe could have won in left, but the writers ultimately went with Alex Gordon...

The New York Yankees’ 2018 season has come and gone. That really sucks. No other way to put it, really. At least I have the Giants? The Knicks? I like LeBron, at least I have that? Yeah, no, it’s going to be a long winter. None of my other teams are particularly close to a real shot at winning anything. That suuuuuuuucks. I have a lot of thoughts on what’s happened here. Some of them will become their own, in-depth posts as the offseason gets going. Let’s just get right into it: I don’t like to play the “Fire (insert coach here)”...

WILD CARD WIN, BABY. That is how we fucking do it! WOOOO. I've had a full day to gather my thoughts after Wednesday's victory... But, trust me, I was riding high after that victory. I was so prepared to finally bodycheck that stupid DJ. But this would have been a happy bodychecking. If we lost, I still could have bodychecked that very same DJ... HOWEVER (yes, Stephen A. voice), that check would have been filled with anger, frustration, and rage. But I digress... I'm going to be honest with all you guys. Leading up to that game was easily one...
