Yankees' Gardner Playing This Week The Way Ellsbury was Expected To

After last night's 3-2 loss to the Rangers, the Yankees are now worse off in the AL East standings (5.5 G B) than they were coming out of the All Star Break.  All the optimism and confidence the team gave to fans after the sweep of the Cincinnati Reds has gone down the drain.  The main culprit for those lost feelings is, of course, the offense.Aside from a 12-run outburst...

Preparing for Michael Pineda’s Return

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images) This year’s Yankees team seems to have the opposite problem than that of last year—instead of all the position players being injured, it’s been the pitchers who have spent the most time on the disabled list. It’s produced a similar result: through this point last season, the Yankees were 4 games over .500 and had been outscored by nine runs...

Yankees Offense Saves Bullpen After Disastrous Performance

If Tuesday’s win wasn’t the ugliest win this season for the New York Yankees, it’s definitely in the competition.

It's easy to believe his fellow relievers felt...

For the Cuban OF Rusney Castillo, the Yankees will have to outbid Boston

Five teams will take private stool samples of the so-called "Brett Gardner with power." (Which, in lieu of Gardy's HRs lately, takes on new meaning.)The five teams: Yankees, Orioles, Astros, Phillies, Redsocks.No reason in this frickin world why we can't outbid Baltimore, Houston and Philly - even if they pooled their money. But Boston - damn - they have been building...

Jeter Passes Yaz In Yankees Loss, But Will He Pass Mo?

Aside from Brett Gardner solidifying his dominance over Yu Darvish, there was nothing else to cheer about in last night's 4-2 Yankee loss to the Texas Rangers. Unless, however, you want to focus on Derek Jeter. That's what I want to do.In case you didn't know, Jeter collected three hits last night, upping his career total to 3,420. With the three hits, he tied and passed Hall...
