Dear Yankees fans,
I have a bone to pick. There is something that has entered our lexicon over the past few seasons, and to be honest, I have grown quite weary of it. It may alienate me some, and come with some backlash, but that’s the risk I need to take.
Continue reading on for more of my plea to Yankees fans.
While it appeared that the New York Yankees offseason was done, they made one last move before spring training started.
Despite some backlash on the ol’ intra web, it’s an absolutely brilliant move, with not a thing to lose.

I need to apologize, dear Wayniacs. No need for excuses. I have been busy and have neglected you. I wasn’t even able to throw together a Super Bowl reaction piece, and for that I am sorry.
As always, I am still writing, just elsewhere across the world wide web. Curious as to what I’ve been writing? Take a peek.
While the New York Yankees went out and made some big trades at the deadline to turn around their farm system, they have some nice pieces in the lower minors they have acquired through the draft. One of those players is Donny Sands.
Looking at the stats, Sands doesn’t jump off the page as a top prospect, and quite frankly, he isn’t that just now. But what he has exhibited through his year and a half as a pro baseball player is that he has the athleticism, makeup and desire to succeed.

There has been some buzz lately about Giovanny Gallegos. Ever since the New York Yankees made some moves to open up space on their 40-man roster for the 25-year old reliever, he went from under-the-radar to top 20 prospect.

The Chicago White Sox have had a nice 48 hours, haven’t they? A day after getting four solid prospects for Chris Sale, they sent Adam Eaton to the Washington Nationals for three more. Their top five prospects now rival anyone’s in baseball, and that says a lot.
Oh, and the New York Yankees went New York Yankees once again.

The New York Yankees sure have a thing for low minors pitching right now, don’t they? A day after acquiring two young fireballers from the Astros for Brian McCann, they brought in another young arm who pitched at A-ball this season for the Mariners.
Analysis of the Yankees newest arm is just a click away!

The New York Yankees and Houston Astros finally struck a deal after more than a week of rumors flying around about Brian McCann. The Astros got their second former Atlanta Braves catcher, acquiring McCann to play alongside Evan Gattis. In exchange, the Yankees (who also sent some money) acquired two young fireballing prospects in Albert Abreu and Jorge Guzman.

While Mark Teixeira helped bring a World Series ring back to the Bronx in his first year in pinstripes, there is no denying that his career had seen better days entering 2016. Instead of figuring out how to move Tex and his big contract, he stepped off quietly out of the spotlight and retired, leaving behind an outstanding career.
The timing couldn’t be better for the Yankees, as Greg Bird is back out in the desert and it seems he has found his groove for the Scottsdale Scorpions.

Dillon Tate has officially become quite the enigma as a pitcher. The righty with the electric arm was drafted as a starter by the Texas Rangers in 2015 and a year later was dealt away to the New York Yankees and put into the bullpen. Where he winds up is anyone’s guess.
