The biggest surprise of Yankees’ camp is…

Alex Rodriguez.The New York Yankees might have expected a circus and a completely overmatched player. They saw the former thanks to the mainstream media (not A-Rod) and they witnessed something completely different from a player performance standpoint – competence.Throughout the first few days of camp it was difficult to stay away from the condescending and unnecessary tone of...

Joe Girardi on Yankees season: World Series an ‘all or nothing’ proposition

The New York Yankees unparallelled run of historic success cannot be questioned, nor is there another MLB team that has obviously enjoyed as much postseason success historically. Still, the Yankees’ recent history has not been as friendly when it comes to finishing seasons hoisting a trophy. More than that, the Bronx Bombers have failed to...Read More The post Joe Girardi on Yankees...

Sabathia’s spring numbers are not pretty. Sabathia’s...

CC Sabathia attempting to get healthier by getting … fatter?

CC Sabathia has enlisted the services of a personal chef to get healthier. But the way in which he is attempting to do so seems counterintuitive: By putting on weight. In fact, Sabathia, thanks to a new diet, bulked back up to 305 pounds this past offseason, hoping that the added weight will help him...Read More The post CC Sabathia attempting to get healthier by getting … fatter...

Read my predictions for the Yankees' 2015 season

I recently had the opportunity to participate in the annual Playing Pepper Yankee bloggers round table. I gave my opinions of what I think is in store for the Yankees this year:* This, unfortunately, will be the year the team finally has a sub-.500 record. I can't see them winning more than 80 games.* I also think that this is the year the Mets will have a better record than the...

If Chris Young homers in a forest, do the trees cheer?

For the record: I hope Chris Young salvages his career.Dear God, it'd be nice to have someone in the lineup with an actual pulse - one guy worth holding water to watch, instead of rushing to the kitchen for a mound of glistening comfort food. Right now, there is A-Rod - sort of - and maybe Brett Gardner. Now that Jose Pirela is out, and since Rob Refsnyder never even got a chance...

Where have you gone Jose Pirela? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you. (Boo-hoo-hoo.)

Oh, well... so much for that far-flung hope.Congratulations, Fate. You got me. The cigar exploded, the whoopie cushion farted, and the gum tasted like onion. Yep, you fooled me again. Yesterday, Jose Pirela hit the wall.  And so did my warmest spring fantasy.Of course, I was stupid to imagine Jose Pirela as anything more than The Second Coming of Yangervis Solarte. We all knew...

WATCH: Yankees prospect crashes into wall, gets carted off

Yankees outfielder Jose Pirela crashed into the center-field wall during Sunday’s Mets-Yankees game. He was carted off the field, and was later diagnosed with a concussion and taken to Tradition Medical Center.

When money trumps talent: Why the Yankees won't bring up Jose Pirela

Spring training is supposed to be a time where baseball farmhands have the opportunity to play their way into the big leagues. But when it comes to the Yankees these days, "Know your place, rook" is the rule. And the place these rookies will be is the minor leagues, instead of with the Yankees.
