Yankees Control Part Of Destiny In 36 Remaining Games

Successful west coast road trips are rare for the New York Yankees. They went 4-2 on the one just completed, which probably says more about how bad the Angels are than how good the Yankees, themselves, are. In any case, they have now won five out of their last six series, and are five games out of the second Wild Card spot. There are 36 games left to play. Is it do-able?  Perhaps...

In their first two games as batterymates, the duo has led the Yankees to a pair of wins — including Wednesday’s 5-0 win over the Mariners at Safeco Field. Tanaka was able to...

Yankees, Girardi ‘freaked’ out after fan lands in dugout

SEATTLE — Austin Romine had a flashback to his minor league days when he saw a pair of legs dangling over the top of the dugout in the middle of the eighth inning during the Yankees’ 5-0 win over the Mariners on Wednesday. “It reminded me of when teams had mascots, but I knew they...

Girardi on WC chase: 'The opportunity is there'

Girardi plays Torreyes again — and Headley’s not happy

SEATTLE — Joe Girardi decided to keep red-hot Ronald Torreyes in the lineup Wednesday after another three-hit game on Tuesday. And Torreyes singled in the Yankees’ 5-0 win over the Mariners, but it meant that Chase Headley was on the bench again. “He’s just playing so well and swinging the bat well, it’s hard to...

In fact, 51 total Yankees have been selected for 3 or more All-Star Games. How many can you name? Clue: Number of times at the ASG-Position/Years active

Sorting through the Yankees’ long list of September call-up candidates

One week from tomorrow all 30 clubs will be able to expand their active rosters and carry up to 40 players. Most clubs carry fewer than 40 players once rosters expand, and that’s their choice. Roster size is not an unfair advantage if one team calls up ten extra players and another only calls up three. That’s long been a pet peeve of mine, calling September call-ups unfair. As...

Yankees Win As Vintage CC Makes Appearance

Have the Baby Bombers lit fires under the other backsides on the Yankees roster?

Jacoby Ellsbury has awakened from an ill-timed slumber. Starlin Castro has gone back to his winning...

New York Yankees: Gary Sanchez has potential to be the best catcher since Jorge Posada

  The Yankees have completely overhauled their team of recent. Out with the present stars, and in with the future prospects that will soon bring them championship number 28. The Yankees have brought up numerous bats since the trade line in August that have flourished in the spotlight, perhaps the brightest being 23-year-old catcher Gary Sanchez.

Game 122 Recap: Great Successa

The Yankees have put a lot of faith in their youth over the past few weeks. That faith continued to be rewarded Saturday night, as Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge and Luis Cessa did the heavy-lifting in a 5-1 win over the Angels that moved the Yankees back to within four games of the American League wild card. Sanchez got the team on the board early in the first when he launched yet another...

What Does Hal Steinbrenner Think of His New Yankees Team?

Over the past month, the New York Yankees went from a team of old, unentertaining veterans to a group of young and hungry rookies. After trading away Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller and Carlos Beltran and relaxing Alex Rodriguez, the Bronx Borers once again became the Bronx Bombers. “It’s kind of been my DNA, right, to absolutely not trade anybody at the trade deadline. If anything...

How Didi Gregorius is undermining his breakout

At this very moment Didi Gregorius is in the midst of a textbook breakout. It’s worth questioning what kind of educational literature would contain the definition of a breakout for a baseball player, but presuming that it exists, Gregorius is certainly conforming to its demands. The 26-year-old is an above-average offensive contributor for the first time of career, thanks in large...

Report: Alex Rodriguez a ‘long shot’ to play in 2017

Ever since Alex Rodriguez played his last game for the New York Yankees organization last Friday, speculation has run rampant about his future. The debate over whether or not A-Rod has in fact played in his last game has been fueled partly by how he has never used the word “retire” or some variation of it in the days that followed. Rodriguez’s publicist did put the kibosh...

Take heart, New York Yankees fans, your owner does pay attention to what you say on Twitter.
