All your mega-thread goodness is right here. (Formerly Inside the Lines)
Got the Yankees first homer, and is stealing bases. All in all, good start.
Did his best impression of David Robertson last night.
He's definitely one of the best backup catchers in the league. It's good to see the catching position becomes the Yankees strength again.
https://twitter.com/Ken_Rosenthal says the Yankees traded Vidal Nuno for Arizona's Brandon McCarthy. McCarthy is tied for the second most hits allowed, earned runs, and losses. The only pitcher who has allowed more hits and more earned runs is Ricky Nolasco, who the Yankees face today. McCarthy has a 5.01 ERA compared to 5.42 for Nuno. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/m/mccarbr01.shtml has McCarthy's statistics. McCarthy's fielding independent pitching (FIP) of 3.79 is 1.22 better...
Battle of the big league debuts tonight with DeGrom starting for Mets. Hopefully Chase Whitley is not another Chase Wright.
Edit: Mod please add a "2014" if necessary.
Nothing major for any of the regulars here. Don't panic folks. ;)
I thought it would be a good idea to open one of these for 2014 on a very slow note. Hopefully this year's thread will be less than 1/10th of what last year's was like.
As posted elsewhere, he got promoted. He's the most recent Yankee reliever to get a win.
Surprised a 2014 Joe Girardi thread hasn't been started yet (and likely a good sign since the tendency is to use this thread to vent or complain about bad decisions more so than to praise good decisions).
I'll kick it off. Interesting decision to stick with Phelps for as long as he did last night but it worked out.
I'm shocked he doesn't have a topic yet. Betances is pitching in the eighth inning now, so Warren is apparently unavailable.
There is going to be alot of pressure on the new Yankee pitching coach right from the start to get the most out of an "incomplete" pitching staff, as Cashman has called it.
Will he be up to the task? If so, he could be the most important acquisition the Yanks made this offseason.
He is getting called up tomorrow. Not sure who is going down yet.
He was promoted and Shane Greene was sent down. http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/l/lerouch01.shtml has Leroux's career statistics.

I know we have threads for each individual reliever but I thought it would be helpful to have a general thread from BP discussion.
With D-Rob on the shelf Kelley is closing and that knocks over some dominoes in the pecking order.
Seems like Joe is going Warren (R) . Thorthon (L) as his primary setup guys with Phelps, Nuno, Betances getting the 6th/7th innings based on matchups with D-rob out. That seem about right to everyone? Not what you think the order should be but what Joe is likely...
I haven't seen a thread like this, so I figured that I'd start one. We have ones for offense and defense, so why not the pen?
After this afternoon's holding one of the best offenses in check, winning 3 of 4 from 3 prior Cy Young Award winners (including the CYA-MVP winner in Verlander), and beating a CYA candidate tonight, our bullpen deserves some credit.
Let's hear your comments for the rest of the 2014 season. :)
Career 78 ERA+ and 1.60 WHIP. Over the past few years, this team has taken dumpster diving to a whole new level. Genius! Stealth! Ca$hmoney, baby!
After seven career blown saves (all of them before the ninth inning when he probably would have been taken out even if he didn't blow the save), he got his first career save in his 181st career game.
