Baseball Links!

February 28, 2024

***

Years ago, we used to post an article each Saturday with links to various articles about the Yankees. Unfortunately, many (many) sites have gone behind paywalls. The amount of articles out there for free are fewer and fewer. And that's a shame.


Anyway, I have been "collecting" some links. These aren't all super current, but these are all interesting stories.


Enjoy!

Here is another link, this one from from Fox Sports. Very positive upbeat article in regard to the 2024 Yankees! From Juan Soto's seamless fit to Nestor Cortes and DJ LeMahieu's promising starts, the New York Yankees are carrying themselves like a club expecting to make a title run! READ THIS:

As you know by now, I am a very positive "glass half full" fan when it comes to the Yankees.

At least this time, Judge had 2+ months to help himself in his training for the more running he will be doing. Knowing Judge's work ethic, I bet his holds up better this time around, especially if they keep it like last time, one day a week as the DH, not in CF. An injury to Soto/Verdugo/ Stanton, all change just how much CF he will be playing too in 2024. Plus it is probably a 2 year deal.


I still don't get why My Captain, #15, is not in the Hall, and why he gets no love to put him there.


Can Giancarlo Stanton really be any worse in 2024 than he was in 2023. Even if he actually…

That's not how you put it, unfortunately.

calling the move from right field to center "grueling" is an exercise in absurdity.


there is an increase in area responsibility that necessitates an increase in the number of steps


but an attempt to portray the increase in mental responsibility as being taxing is to ignore how very slight is the intellectual demand upon outfielders.

centerfielders aint quarterbacks or point guards

This just gets more and more absurd.


Do baseball players train like basketball players and tennis players?


Do basketball players and tennis players run as much as Olympians who train for the 10,000 meters?


Do 10,000 meter runners run as much as marathoners?


Do marathoners train as much as IronMen?


What does any of that have to do with Aaron Judge specifically?


I'm not going to debate mundane and silly points with you. But I'll make my point one last time.


Aaron Judge has a damaged toe that requires continual attention. That toe caused him to miss 43 games. Upon returning, while his power numbers were there, he batted only .245. There should be some concern there because much…

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
