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...

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez underwent left shoulder debridement surgery earlier this week. The injured shoulder reportedly had been bothering Sanchez since 2017, and it started flaring up again this offseason so the Yanks decided to pull the trigger on just getting the surgery. The expected recovery time for this procedure is supposed to be three months, putting Gary in line to return to baseball around early-mid February, although Cashman played it safe and just said (I’m paraphrasing) that he’ll almost certainly be ready for opening day. Kinda has to play it safe after the “Aaron Judge will return in three...

I was on my drive to drop my car off for an oil change. I was listening in to the Boone/Cashman press conference and I was preparing to write a little blog about Patrick Corbin until Jason Zillo jumped in from the top rope with the BOMBSHELL that Didi Gregorius will require Tommy John Surgery forty (40) minutes into listening to Boone. My grandma reads some of these posts so I’m going to warn her that I’m about to use some inappropriate language, in case this is one of the posts that she does read: Ummm. Fuck. This news was...
