BBB Reacts: Yankees' disappointing end to the 2018 season

Well, it's been just about a week now since the Boston Red Sox eliminated the Yankees from playoff contention and we've all had some time to stew on it.  Obviously not the ending any of us wanted and made even more painful due to the fact that it was our arch-rivals who put the nail in the coffin.Some of our contributors weigh in below about how this season ended, what to make of it all, and where the Yankees go from here heading into 2019.

Yankees acquire infielder L.J. Mazzilli from the Mets

The Yankees made an interesting exchange on Tuesday morning as they traded away minor league outfielder, Kendall Coleman, to the Mets in exchange for minor league infielder L.J. Mazzilli. Mazzilli is the son of former Yankee player and coach Lee Mazzilli.

The Yankees and Mets are not known for trading with one another due to their subway rivalry, but were able to swing this swap of relatively unknown minor league players.

Coleman was taken by the Bombers in the 11th round of the 2013 draft and has not made it above Single-A. Coleman is a career .207/.309/.301 hitter in the minors.


Mazzilli was also a product of the 2013 draft, but was chosen in the fourth round by the Mets. The 27-year-old is a career .268/.339/.379 hitter in the minors and will add infield depth to the Yankees minor league teams. Mazzilli has received two suspensions in his career due to drug abuse, with the latest one coming in 2014.
