I didn't bother with the linkaround yesterday. I figured nobody was going to pull themself away from wall-to-wall postseason baseball to read stuff on the internet. But there's no games on this morning, so let's catch up with the week that was in the Yankosphere. - On Tuesday, Mike Axisa of RAB pinpointed swinging earlier in the count as the smart strategy for the Yankee hitters against Dallas Keuchel. Didn't say anything about taking so many strike 3s though.
- On Wednesday, Kenny Ducey of BP Bronx commented on the Yankee leadership's statements after the WC game and how that predicts more of the same in 2016.
- Tanya Bondurant of Pinstripe Alley took a positive approach and explained why this season was not the failure that many older, traditional Yankee fans see it as.
- On Thursday, el duque of It Is High... looked ahead to next season and all the things that will continue to trend in the wrong direction if the Yankees stand pat this offseason.
- Chad Jennings of LoHud picked out 10 players whose roles for 2016 are still up in the air.
- Wally Matthews of ESPN NY mused on the need for an offsensive upgrade next season.
- On Friday, Chris Carelli looked at how Nathan Eovaldi's late-season injury affected Adam Warren's usage and the rest of the Yankee pitching staff in September.
From the IIATMS team:
- On Tuesday, Stacey, Dom, and EJ got together for the latest edition of the IIATMS Podcast.
- On Thursday, Dom recapped the year for the IIATMS Top 30 prospects list.
I still need a pick-me-up for the weekend, so I'm going with one of my favorite Kyuss songs.
Enjoy your weekends, everybody.
