The New York Yankees agreed to terms with Brett Gardner on a one-year deal worth $7.5 million for 2019 on Wednesday. Oct. 31 was the deadline to decide what to do about the team option on Gardy’s contract. The Yankees had two options: Pick up the team option: Brett Gardner earns $12.5 million for the 2019 season Decline the team option: Brett Gardner receives a $2 million buyout and becomes a free agent The Yankees opted for the latter but immediately re-signed Gardner to the aforementioned $7.5 million deal. As I understand it, the move saves the Yankees $3 million...

UGH. Why do we keep having our team do this to us? They fall behind in a game, then make a miraculous comeback, only to fall short. They get us all hyped up and excited - only to send our hopes and dreams crashing to the ground. This was basically the baseball equivalent of Blue Balls. Kids, if you don't know what that is...ask your parents. Or your brother. Or that homeless guy down the street from your house who keeps screaming out "It's the Government's fault!" Now, picture this: Imagine buying tickets to a Drake concert.  You're super pumped,...

A Bullpen Day in the Trop? No surprise there. I guess we'll have to prepare for Sergio Ro - wait what? We're the ones using the 'Bullpen Day' strategy?  Whoa. In the words of Faux Jon Gruden, "this is blowing my mind, man." Look at Aaron Boone trying to masquerade as a clever manager, with a bunch of sneaky strategies. I guess Halloween comes early in the Boone household. Side note: Boone is for sure the loser house on the block that hands out something stupid like apples. Or granola bars. Or some weird little toy.  But for real, props...

This was one of those annoying games where you're beating the shit out a team, but then cannot put them away in the end.  They just kept popping up again. Like Brett Favre and his one million retirements. Or Steve Urkel barging into his neighbor's house. These stupid Orioles wouldn't go away on Friday night.  We we're up 6-0...they made it 6-4. We extended that lead to 9-4...they made it 9-8. Finally we held their scoring after that, but it was still extremely annoying to keep letting the worst team in the league, record-wise, back into the ballgame.  At least...

UPDATE 9/18: I promised I’d update this as we got more guys up, and now is the time! The Yankees have brought up a bunch of new guys since I originally posted this, so here we go. Justus Sheffield If you’re here, I am sure you know who Justus Sheffield is. The Yankees called up their top prospect, a left handed pitcher, upon the conclusion of Triple-A Scranton’s season. Justus had a 2.56 ERA in 20 AAA games (15 starts) while limiting damage via the home run (0.31 HR/9 in AAA). The Yankees moved him to the bullpen last month...
