YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Yankees: New deal with StubHub

The New York Yankees have been hit hard this season through dwindling attendance and widespread criticism from fans about their ticket prices and policies. Being the main seller of secondary tickets to the other 29 franchises since 2012, StubHub has been in a feud with the Yankees since that time. Publicly complaining about the company for years, the Yankees have been unwilling to...

New York Yankees: don’t get your hopes up

On Sunday afternoon, the New York Yankees dropped a poorly played game to the Minnesota Twins to end their brief three-game winning streak. This season has begun to feel like a series of winning and losing streaks, raising and breaking the spirits of Yankees fans watching at home. They begin to feel like they have it all figured out, when the pitching falls short, the hitters pick...

Does this benching mean A-Rod’s no longer full-time DH?

In a move that could lead to Alex Rodriguez being the designated hitter only against left-handed pitchers, manager Joe Girardi used switch-hitting Carlos Beltran as the DH Sunday against Twins righty Tyler Duffey. Rodriguez took a seat hitting .200 (23-for-115) with five homers, 17 RBIs and a .584 OPS against righties. “That had something to...

Yankees’ new core 4 isn’t the problem — the other 21 are

The Core Four these days in The Bronx is Carlos Beltran, Andrew Miller, Dellin Betances and Aroldis Chapman. Not exactly Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera, but good enough to give the don’t-be-seller romantics a flicker of hope. If the Yankees plan on making any kind of noise this summer, their current...

Mark Teixeira slugged his fourth home run of the year in the eighth inning off the Twins' Tyler Duffey, accounting for New York's only run in a 7-1 loss. It was Teixeira's first homer since April 13 at Toronto, a span of 147 at-bats that represents the longest drought of his career.

Yankees recall Cessa, send down Goody

Right-hander Luis Cessa, who opened the season in the big leagues and made a brief return to the squad toward the end of May, was recalled Sunday to bolster the bullpen in a wide variety of roles. As a countering move, the Yankees optioned Nick Goody to Triple-A.

Game 74: Do the Twins really have to leave?

The Yankees are looking to finish a three-game sweep of the Twins this afternoon, and, unfortunately, they won’t play Minnesota again this season. That’s a damn shame. As we’ve seen the last two days, even with the Twinkies have a lead and the Yankees seem unable to do anything, the Twins will find a way to lose. Gonna miss that. Here is the Twins’ lineup and here is the...

The Hall of Fame Index: Carlos Beltran

For those few who read my last article on the Hall of Fame Index, I hope you will enjoy this second edition. Sometimes it’s fun to take a break from fantasy sports and simply enjoy players that are essentially living legends. Carlos Beltran registers as a career center fielder even though he has been playing in right field the last several seasons. For many, he has been an oft...

New York Yankees need to beat good teams in order to prove they belong in Contention

After their 2-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, the New York Yankees found themselves over .500 for the first time since June 10 when they were 31-30. The Bronx Bombers have done it with solid enough pitching from their staff and the right amount of offense. However, they have also done it against some of the worst teams in baseball. To convince their fans and the...

Game 73 Recap: All the way up over .500

The New York Yankees reached the .500 mark Friday night after their 5-3 victory over the visiting Minnesota Twins, so the objective on Saturday afternoon was simple: Push themselves into the above .500 threshold. The much-maligned Michael Pineda took the mound for the Yankees on a beautiful Saturday in The Bronx and wound up delivering a performance that was perhaps comparable to...

Betances, Miller, Chapman perfect again, Yanks top Twins 5-3

NEW YORK (AP) Aroldis Chapman reared back and fired strike after strike at the Minnesota Twins. Eduardo Escobar swung past pitches of 101 mph, 102 and 102. Byung Ho Park took a 102 offering, fouled off a 103 and swung over a 103. After three straight 103s, taking the first and fouling two more off, Kurt Suzuki managed to foul off Chapman's fastest pitch of the night at 104. And...

Alex Rodriguez’s hamstring seems to be attached to his eyes

In everyday life we most commonly think of human bodies holistically. Walking down the street we tend to see the fine folk in our path as people instead of limbs, torsos, rib cages and facial features. Things are a little different when evaluating athletes. In baseball, arms, shoulders, elbows, legs, and hands are commonly scrutinized intently by scouts, fans and front office...

Game 71 Recap: Starlin earns his pinstripes

This recap was going to read very differently in the seventh inning of Wednesday’s 9-8 Yankees’ win. CC Sabathia finally had an off night, middle relievers once again came back to haunt the Yankees, and the offense couldn’t do enough to overcome the deficit. Thankfully, the Yankees managed to come back from four runs and won the game in walk off fashion via a Starlin Castro...

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman isn’t ready to concede the team should be sellers at the Aug. 1 trade deadline. But he nevertheless admitted his “brutally honest” nature will compel him to throw in the towel on the season if and when the time comes.

Hal Steinbrenner confident Yankees can still make playoffs

The New York Yankees have looked like a mediocre team at best this season, and they have a 34-35 record that shows it. With the trade deadline a little over a month away, it might be in their best interest to be sellers for a change rather than buyers. Hal Steinbrenner doesn’t see that happening. Why? Because the Yankees owner believes his team is still right in the thick of things...

New York Yankees: Could CC Sabathia make the All-Star team?

With the New York Yankees still stuck in mediocrity at 34-35 and sitting in fourth place in the AL East, one of the bright spots this season has definitely been the resurgent CC Sabathia. Written off as nothing more than a fringe #5 starter with a bloated contract, Sabathia has looked his best in years. That begs the question: could the 35-year-old actually make the All-Star team...
