Yankees Will Always Be Kings of New York

No matter how much success the other team in New York may be having this season, or ever, the city of New York will always be owned by the New York Yankees. ESPN Sunday Night baseball analyst John Kruk seems to have a different opinion, but the facts are the facts and the Yankees run Gotham and the New York Mets are, and always will be, the Yankees little sister. Even though the...

The Mets and Yankees Set to Battle for New York

Heading into this weekend in the Bronx, the New York Mets and the New York Yankees go head to head for Big Apple supremacy. It may only be April, but whenever these two teams face off, the stakes are high. It is a bit of a surprise that both the Mets and the Yankees sit atop their respective divisions. The Washington Nationals went out and brought in Max Scherzer to give them what...

An Old (But Topical) Conversation with Andruw Jones

This interview was conducted in September 2012, but that doesn’t matter. The topic was his career, and Andruw Jones was weeks away from his final game. Contextually, nothing has changed in the two-plus years that these words went unpublished. The longtime Atlanta Brave hit 434 home runs, but his legacy is defense. He won 10 straight […]

Yankee Role Players Playing The Biggest Role Early

Heading into the 2015 season, the New York Yankees were almost written off in the American League East. The constant injury concerns and aged roster had the biggest impact on their preseason projections. To beat the odds, players like Jacoby Ellsbury, Masahiro Tanaka, and Brian McCann were tasked with stepping up their game to fills the holes elsewhere in the lineup/rotation....

Alex Rodriguez to reporter: ‘It’s been one long boo for 15 years’

Alex Rodriguez had a somewhat terse back-and-forth with a Detroit reporter on Wednesday over the perception that he is baseball’s biggest villain. The New York Yankees slugger mostly blew off the assertion that he is the resident player pariah in Major League Baseball, especially in the wake of his season-long exile last year. Rodriguez instead...Read More The post A-Rod during...

The historical significance of a potential A-Rod resurgence

The Hunt for Alex Rodriguez began early in spring training, and the feel one got from most of the reporting was almost akin to that of a death watch. Expectations were, to put it mildly, quite low, and the potential for theater was very high; the perfect combination for a media firestorm. Well, something very […]

Bernie to retire Friday; what's keeping Beltran?

The battle for ink in NYC is so bleak that the Yankees are now staging rank publicity stunts to capture attention. What's next? Hal Steinbrenner wearing dresses? Suzyn dating Kanye? Those back page headlines don't write themselves. Friday, Bernie Williams will step to the podium and announce his retirement. Not from music. From baseball. It's a joke, get it? Bernie has never officially...

Yankees’ Bernie Williams will formally retire on Friday

Bernie Williams hasn’t played a Major League game since 2006, but he never officially retired from baseball until Friday, when the New York Yankees will honor Williams with a retirement ceremony. Williams will be joined by Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and assistant general manager Jean Afterman at the event.  The Yankees will unveil a logo related to the retirement...

Chris Young Perfect As Yankees Even Series With Detroit

How about that Chris Young? The Yankees fourth outfielder went 3-for-3 with a HR and two walks on Tuesday evening, and played solid defense in RF in place of Carlos Beltran. With the home run, Young entered a three way tie on the team, even though he is only 10th in ABs. He was instrumental in the Yankees evening the series with Detroit at one game apiece, and was a solid backup...

New York Yankees – Prospect Alert

Luis Severino – RHP Severino is touted as the New York Yankees “Top Prospect” and currently ranks as the 24th Prospect in Baseball. The Yanks snatched up Severino off of the International Market, laying down a cool $225,000. Severino’s hovers a fastball within the mid-90s, but can pump up to 99 MPH when he lets loose. […]

The Best The Yankees Can Do

I am still stuck using an I-pad, so the visual I had in mind will have to remain a mystery.Yesterday, in Detroit, CC pitched as well as he will pitch all year, against the best hitting team in baseball.The sad truth is that the real offense showed up for the Yankees, as well.  Tino's solo HR looked like an accident.  No one, including Tino, thought he hit it out.  It was as if...

A-Rod exceeding expectations, eluding karmic justice

Alex Rodriguez can just never get it right. He was supposed to be one of the greatest baseball players of all time, but is now a disgraced PED user and cheater whose achievements are all questionable, no matter how impressive they look on a list or spreadsheet. A-Rod could have been the face of baseball, a matinee idol admired by fans of all ages, but his ambition for the biggest...

Yankees encouraged by winless Sabathia

The New York Yankees have not won a game in which CC Sabathia has pitched this season, yet the team is probably as excited about three losses as they could be considering what Sabathia has done on the mound thus far.Of course, it is just three games and we cannot assume that Sabathia’s knee will hold up, but we also cannot ignore the underlying components of Sabathia’s work in...

Will Hal Steinbrenner now ignore the "pitching version of Yoan Moncada?"

Listen carefully around the owner's box in Yankee Stadium, and you'll wonder if a certain somebody hasn't hatched a box of Easter chicks. Everyone, you'll hear the cute little sounds, "Cheep, cheep, cheep..."It must be the squeaky shoes of Hal "I'm Not Cheap" Steinbrenner, the business-minded scion of a family that needs both sets of fingers to count its billions.

Alex Rodriguez: Heir to the Empire

“Wrath” and “Man” are, respectively, the first two words of “The Iliad” and “The Odyssey.” The former refers to the anger of Achilles, who stars in the first work, and the latter references the title character of the second epic poem. When it comes to the subject of Alex Rodriguez, especially in New York, the anger of the fans and the Steinbrenner ownership...

Yankees decline to name Miller closer and that’s OK

Despite the fact that all four of the New York Yankees save opportunities this season have gone to Andrew Miller, the club has yet to officially anoint him the closer. And there is nothing wrong with that.It goes a long way that Miller is completely uncaring about the role being bestowed upon him, plus the fact that he acknowledged that Dellin Betances had the more difficult task...

The 2015 Yankees: To Panic Or Not To Panic?

So is it time to panic? We are nine games into the season and the results are not good.. If this keeps up for the rest of the year the Yankees will finish at 54-108. If that happens be sure to check into the list of top prospects for the 2016 draft. Yes, it is frustrating to be a Yankee fan these days. We fans have come to expect the Yankees to contend every year. We're told by the...

New York Yankees are off to a sluggish start

Mark Teixeira leads the Yankees with three home runs. The New York Yankees kicked off the 2015 season with two home-opening series against the Blue Jays and rival Red Sox, escaping with a 2-4 record and after Wednesday night, dropped another series in a 7-5 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees have an off day before heading to St. Petersburg, Florida on Friday to finish off...

Should the Yankees turn to Chris Young

It’s still early in the 2015 season and any look at statistics has to be done with the caveat of considering it is from a small sample size. This could be thought to be the case when considering the right field situation for the Yankees. Carlos Beltran is off to a horrible start with a slash line of .156.176.250. The typical thought is that he is a veteran and he will turn it...

An Open Letter To Didi Gregorius

Dear Didi (or, Sir Didi if you prefer): Let’s be clear. Nobody is putting all the blame on you for the Yankees 3-5 record, or for their place at the bottom of the A.L. East. That wouldn’t be fair. Between Masahiro Tanaka’s subpar starts, CC Sabathia’s poor starts (although last nights 7 IP and 4 ER was an improvement) and poor situational hitting with RISP, there’s plenty...

Slumping Didi Gregorius says all he can do is laugh off Derek Jeter chants

Didi Gregorius probably understood from the get-go that it wouldn’t be easy to replace Derek Jeter in the New York Yankees infield. After all, the former shortstop dubbed the “Captain” was a once-in-a-generation kind of player who was respected by his teammates and worshiped by fans. But even the 25-year-old likely didn’t expect he’d have...Read More The post Slumping...

WPIX runs out of ads during Red Sox-Yankees marathon

Friday night’s Red Sox-Yankees reminded people why they get impatient with baseball. With a game that went 19 innings and lasted six hours and 49 minutes, it went long enough for two games and then some. New York’s WPIX was airing its first Yankees game since 1998, so you’d think it would be ready for almost anything, but apparently it wasn’t prepared for it to go past 17...
