Welcome to the year 2015. Pockets should be inside out, cars should be flying, and the Cubs are suppose to win the World Series. Since the first two things on that list are not happening, the Yankees don't believe in the third thing coming true either. Yesterday, they made a surprising trade with the Braves. Of course, by "surprising" I mean that I'm shocked they didn't wait till Friday like they normally do. Manny Banuelos is heading to Atlanta in exchange for David Carpenter and Chasen Shreve. Excuse me while I pour one out for the Killer B's.
Comments of the Day
Because really, is there any better way to start the COTD section off than Masahiro Tanaka holding a puppy?
Bernie Williams was core fouring it before there was a core four!
Still waiting for the Yankees to explain to me how Rob Thomson is a better third base coach than Willie Randolph. Still waiting.
Injuries are the worst.
The ManBan trade was just made. Most of the following COTDs are the reactions to it.
Again, injuries suck.
Way to leave in important information, Waffles. Sheesh.
Filling the Chase quota.
Also, how many licks does it take to get to the...never mind.
We're probably going to have fun with Chasen Shreve
So long, ManBan.

Love you, Willie Randolph.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for the whole year. Okay, maybe not the whole year. Let's just use it for today. Talk about anything you want. Prospects, the Yankees new bullpen, the Yankees lack of a hitting coach. You name it.
Best of luck, ManBan
