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.

Breaking: Greg Bird to rejoin the Yankees Saturday


At long last, the Yankees starting first baseman Greg Bird will be returning to the major league team this Saturday, in the Bronx, as the Yankees take on the Halos. This came directly from Boone who told WFAN today. Bird has missed the entirety of the season, thus far, due to an ankle surgery in late-March.

Bird’s bat will play well in a lineup filled with right-handed power. He hit 206 with three home runs in eleven rehab games. He will likely garner a majority at-bats at first base, but could very well be platooned with either Walker or Austin when the Yankees face a southpaw. A corresponding move has yet to announced.

After countless injury plagued seasons since his debut in 2015, the Yankees hope that this will be the last hurdle Bird has to jump as he will try to once again cement himself as a cornerstone position player.
