Prior to the 2019 season, many observers (this writer included) thought that the Yankee bullpen had a chance to be historically great. For one reason or another, the bullpen, while good, has not been historically great. I examine how the bullpen has performed to-date, and evaluate what the bullpen might look like for the rest of the season.

Last week we looked at players who played for both the Yankees and the Mets as the only teams in their careers. There were only five players that met that criteria.
This week we are looking at players who only played or pitched for the Yankees and the Cleveland Indians.
Since there are more than five players on that list, we picked five. Two are Hall-of-Famers, one pitched a no-hitter, one was part of a great trade for the Yankees, and one was a guy who, while he played for other teams, only pitched for the Indians and the Yankees.
The Getty Images photographers had a great weekend in Cleveland. There are some wonderful pictures in this photo essay from the weekend series the Yankees just completed against the Indians.
(As was once said, a picture is worth a thousand words. Here then are a few thousand words.)Read More
Each Sunday night, at least when the Yankees aren’t the Sunday Night Game of the Week, we plan to share a video that looks at baseball (most often with a Yankees focus, but not always) in a fun, unique, or memorable way. This feature will be different than the Wednesday Night Classics (where we show great Yankees moments or classic footage of players).
The Sunday Night Special will dive into the trivial, memorable, or bizarre. Many of these videos will show interesting analysis into baseball statistics. Others, though, might just feature a scene from a movie, or serve as a highlight film of a player, the team, or…well, you’ll have to stop by each week to see!
You will never quite know what will turn up on the Sunday Night Special, but we can promise it’ll be worth your time to watch.
