    • Yankees announce the details of the expanded protective netting for 2018

      The details of the expanded netting at Yankee Stadium were made public by the team Wednesday.

      The Yankees finally caved to mounting pressure when they announced in October that more protective netting would be put in place in time for the start of the 2018 season.

      Now we get the details.

      The netting, which will be partially retractable, will be attached to the roofs of both dugouts and stationary netting will extend beyond the far ends of the dugouts toward the foul poles. Read more.

      • the Yanks should stand pat until after spring training at least. let the young guys show their stuff. anjular could be the next yankees star. Also the young pitchers. No need to trade valuable young assets just yet. If after 1/4 1/2 a season they need to fill a hole then so be it but....i don't see cashman being that interested. he only makes good deals for the most part. Expecting the Yanks to stand pat from here. We shall see.

          I agree.

          I think if Andujar and Torres arent ready, they have Torreyes and Wade to play too. They will just be our 8-9 hitters which is fine in this lineup.

            Yanks willing to pay half of Ellsburys contract. SF was in on Jay Bruce and missed out so they might be more willing now.

            Please let this happen!

                To be fair, he is way more than a pitch runner. He plays plus defense still even though his arm is garbage. And his catcher interference ratio is #1 all time :-) Seriously though, his bat isn't terrible. It's just the Yankees have no room.

                  It's going to be tough to do. Even if they make a deal with another team and eat half his salary, Ellsbury still has to wave his no trade clause which he has been reluctant in doing.

                    True. He is a good player. he got a big contract for a reason. The dude could be a comeback story or sorts, but the yanks don't have a place for him atm. Some team should take him for half price one could imagine.

                      Lets not go that far. He will hit .270 with 10 HRs and 50 RBIs in a full season but still not be as bad as everyone thinks. He is still a good reliable defensive player.

                      • Pirates trade Yankees’ target Gerrit Cole to Astros

                        The Yankees have once again missed out on acquiring Gerrit Cole.

                        Pittsburgh traded the pitcher to the Astros on Saturday in return for a package centered around Joe Musgrove and Colin Moran, according to Yahoo Sports.

                        Two other Astros players, Jason Martin and Michael Feliz, are expected to be involved in the deal as well, according to The Athletic. Read more.

                          Why I think Cole is suspect its a great trade for the Astros . Didn't they ask for Frazier and sheffield from us then they trade him for garbage. I still am pissed we didnt go after Verlander, that was the punch to the gut move. We could of straight up claimed him to block the trade. It cost us the World Series

                            Yup

                            Actually I think we were willing to give Frazier and Adams for him, and they wanted guys like Torres and Shef. Its crazy how much less they got trading with the Astros. Hope we beat him up next year.

                            I wonder if Cash will now go harder after Yu. Hope not.

                              According to John Harper of the Daily News, the Astros package wasn't that spectacular. He said maybe Chance Adams wasn't even in the Yankees original package offer.

                                Not going after Verlander was a mistake as well, obviously. I wasn't thrilled with going hard after Gray. Im not sure Verlander wanted to go to NY though.

                                Could you imagine Frazier and Adams for a pitcher who had a 4+ ERA in the NL Central coming to the HR parks in the AL East? YIKES. Normally pitchers are much better for the Pirates (Nova, Burnett) than the Yankees.
