Who's Hot, Who's Not

Image
The Yankees’ month of August, so far, can be best described as -- you guessed it -- savage.With 15 wins and just four losses on the month, they are 9.5 games ahead of their division rivals, the Tampa Bay Rays, in first place in the A.L. East.They’re playing well over .500 are competing with the Astros for the first overall seed in the AL, which would clinch home-field advantage in the postseason. 
Who are some of the surprise contributors?Who still needs to get their heads in the game?

Yanks sign RHP Trevor Rosenthal to minor-league deal

Image
The Yankees have signed right-handed reliever Trevor Rosenthal, Andersen Pickard of Fan Source Network has reported. The agreement is a minor-league deal and the move should be seen as nothing more than a depth signing, as relievers Dellin Betances, Jonathan Holder, and others still remain on the Injured List. Rosenthal is the latest reliever the Yanks have acquired in attempting to get through the month of August.

Umpires are becoming increasingly soft, evidenced by Brett Gardner's bat banging ejection

I don’t think I’m alone in my opinion that Brett Gardner banging his bat on dugout roofs (both at the Rogers Centre in Toronto and at Yankee Stadium alike) in protest of bad umpiring, is a display that is nothing short of iconic.

BBB Weighs in: 2019 MLB Trade Deadline

No matter how you felt about the deadline, it progressed differently than most would have expected, given the Yankees lack of moves. While it is undebatable that this team still has World Series talent, it is still unlike a championship contender to not address its most glaring needs. Here is what our staff had to say about what transpired:



Yankees send Voit, Hale to IL

As we approach the Trade Deadline this afternoon, the Yankees have placed 1B Luke Voit and RHP David Hale on the 10-day IL, calling up INF Breyvic Valera and RHP Jonathan Holder to take their spots.

Yankees Trade Targets: Relievers

Image
By now, you’ve heard the rhetoric: The Yankees need Starting Pitching.The current pitching rotation is in shambles after a week in which they were ripped to the tune of 52 runs (48 earned) in 26 innings pitched. Let me repeat that: 52 runs in 26 innings.Mercifully, Domingo German was able to put an end to that streak last night, earning his 13th win, going 5.1 innings with just three earned runs, in a 9-6 victory over the Red Sox.
While there is absolutely no question that this team needs to add another starting pitcher (or two) before Wednesday’s MLB Trade Deadline, there is another way the team can improve the pitching staff: by way of the bullpen.
