Hello, and welcome to Views from 314ft! We are a new, independent blog that will provide fans with smart, informed analysis of the New York Yankees. We’ll provide up-to-the-minute news, takeaways from each game, minor league updates, sharp opinions, and the in-depth statistical breakdowns and analyses that Yankee fans deserve.
314ft is an offshoot of River Ave Blues, and you’ll likely recognize many of our names if you were a frequent RAB reader. We are:
- Bobby Montano, (@mr_bobloblaw)
- Derek Albin, (@derekalbin)
- Randy Wilkins, (@pamsson)
- Steven Tydings, (@StevenTydings)
- Matt Imbrogno, (@mimbro1)
Over the coming days and weeks, we hope to introduce you to our individual style as well as our site’s collective voice. We each have unique and sometimes conflicting views on the Bombers, and we are confident our varying viewpoints will represent many different segments from across the fandom.
While we’ll have reactions to each game, nightly updates on the minors, and other features familiar to those who used to read River Ave Blues, we are not—and cannot be—another RAB. For that, we strongly recommend Mike Axisa’s new Patreon campaign, where he provides weekly thoughts and commentary.
With that said, we do hope to fill a bit of the void that RAB left in the online Yankee community. The best way for us to do that, of course, is by hearing from you, so please tell us what is working, what isn’t, and what you want to see from our new site. You can reach us on Twitter at @Viewsfrom314ft or by email at Viewsfrom314 (at) gmail (dot) com.
We hope that this is the beginning of a fun ride for all of us, and we can’t wait to get started.
— Bobby, Derek, Randy, Steven, and Matt
