YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Stay Evil: The Yankees have one more month to keep proving everybody wrong.

Today, I shall bend over, press my nose into the honeypot, and eat crow. Stephen Drew crow. Yes, Stephen "Larrupin Lou" Drew crow. For five months, I have been bellowing at the player, the manager, the team and the cosmos over what I've viewed as the baseball equivalent of a ruptured billiard. All season, Drew has been hitting comfortably below .200 - without changing his swing,...

Tourists in Boston ask A-Rod to take photo — of them

Love him or hate him, you probably know who Alex Rodriguez is. Unless you’re these people. Everyone is a tourist @Harvard #harvarduniversity. pic.twitter.com/ND3cLtS4YA — Alex Rodriguez (@AROD) September 1, 2015   While the Yankees were in Boston for a three-game set against the Red Sox at Fenway Park this week, A-Rod apparently decided to visit Harvard University...

A-Rod snaps photo for couple while out in Boston area

As a member of the Evil Empire, New York Yankees superstar Alex Rodriguez is a marked man in Boston to say the least. But he apparently isn’t so sour on the town and its Red Sox-loving residents that he wouldn’t do a favor for a nice couple while spending some time taking in the sights at Harvard. With the Yankees in town for a three-game series at Fenway Park, Rodriguez took...

Key Moments Help Yankees Win A Close Game At Fenway

The Yankees 3-1 win in last night’s game against the Boston Red Sox contained a lot of promising elements, particularly for a team with playoff aspirations. While it’s great advice to not look too far ahead, it's still nice to see the Yankees win a close game that featured: Timely hitting (Stephen Drew with a 2-run double and solo blast from Brett Gardner) Solid defense (Chase...

Yankees perform increasingly rare feat: Win with age

Since the New York Yankees’ incredible five-year run at the end of the last century, which saw the club win four titles with a youth-filled core, the Yankees have long been seen as an aging group of veteran free-agent purchases. Jason Giambi, Mike Mussina, and Alex Rodriguez supplemented Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Bernie Williams, Andy Pettitte, and Mariano Rivera as the group...

Yankees Minor League Update (8/25-8/31)

Prospects of the Week: Dustin Fowler, CF Dustin Fowler fits the mold of the ‘Yankee outfield prospect’ in that he is an athletic and toolsy, yet raw player. Fowler, like many other Yankee prospects, was a late round pick, as he was drafted in the 18th round (2013). Where Fowler is unlike many Yankee minor league outfielders is that he has turned his tools into production this...

Suspicous photo may lead to drug test for CC Sabathia

New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia may have piqued the interest and scrutiny of Major League Baseball and its drug testers over a photograph he actually re-posted to his own Instagram account. The photograph, which shows Sabathia taking a puff off something on an Atlanta hotel balcony. He claims it is a cigar, but the photo prompted speculation that it perhaps could be a marijuana...

Babe Ruth’s Former New York Apartment Can Be Bought For Just $1.6M (Photos)

If you want to live like Babe Ruth himself did, you can now do so — assuming you have roughly $1.6 million, of course. The apartment of the New York Yankees legend is on sale in Manhattan’s Upper West Side neighborhood, and the asking price is just under $1.6 million. If you’re interested, you better move fast, though. The New York Post reported there was an open house over...

Wouldn't you know it?

Yes, Stephen Drew, past two oh two, HOW DO YOU DO!For the home stretch, we can light our cigars with second basemen. The question: Which will start in the One Game Bud Selig...

Yankees weekend news wrap: Domination expected and delivered

Heading into the weekend series at the Atlanta Braves, the New York Yankees had to feel they had three very winnable games coming against a team in complete rebuild mode. That feeling and getting the job done are two different things, but the Yankees’ bats came alive and carried them to a three-game sweep.The series finale will be highlighted because of the 21-hit, 20-run rampage...

New York Yankees: Can Luis Severino continue his success?

He’s far from a finished product but after five starts, New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino has been one of the team’s most consistent starters. After allowing one run on two hits and no walks with seven strikeouts in his August 5th debut against Boston, Severino has posted four straight quality starts since. While he has not gone more than six innings in any outing thus...

Alex Rodriguez killed a man

Controversial New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez killed a man at Turner Field in Atlanta last night as the Yanks took on the Braves. The fall occurred in the top of the seventh inning as the A-Rod was walking to the plate to a chorus of boos. The 60 some year old Gregory Murrey apparently fell off the upper deck in the 400 level of the stadium behind the home-plate area and landed...

The Yankees' aging resurgence

When Derek Jeter singled in the game winning run in his final at bat at Yankee Stadium last season, it was a much different scene than those Jeter had come to be known for during his career.   The Yankees had already been eliminated from the playoffs, and the victory wasn’t much more than a moral victory. For the second straight year, the Yankees had missed the playoffs. With...

WATCH: Outfielder Jonny Gomes pitched for Braves vs. Yankees

In the midst of a blowout, Atlanta Braves outfielder Jonny Gomes seized upon a golden opportunity to pitch in the ninth inning against the New York Yankees. New York was already up by a score of 13-2 when Gomes strode to the mound. He was called into duty as a means to save Atlanta’s bullpen in a game that was already a lost cause. It wasn’t exactly pretty, but boy was it an...

Fifteen runs: Did the Yankees just use up their allotment for the week?

Listen: It's great to see the Cueball, Brian McCann, return to Turner Town and whack a three-run Wolf Blitzer. Trouble is, it came as a postscript to a 15-run blowout, and my Nancy Grace spider sense began tingling before he touched second.  Fifteen runs. Woop woop. But will that be it? Did our heroes salt their stats to compensate for last week's malaise against Cleveland...

Derek Jeter rickrolled readers in debut Players’ Tribune post

One of Derek Jeter’s first of many post-retirement endeavors was to unveil The Players’ Tribune, a website which has the stated goal of allowing athletes to express themselves freely, unfettered and unedited (well, save for just a tinge — or a lot — of editing, apparently). The so-called editorial freedom has attracted the likes of Russell Wilson, Blake Griffin and Kevin...

Yankees lacking energy during playoff race?

New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner told reporters Wednesday that he feels the club is lacking energy of late, more specifically saying the team was “kind of flat” in Tuesday and Wednesday’s defeats at the hands of AL West leading Houston. If there is one thing that makes me want to pull my hair out, it’s professional athletes saying they do not possess drive. I get...

Isn't it time for Brian (Fredo) Cashman to grow the bleep up?

Last October, after the Yankees announced that Brian (Fredo) Cashman would be coming back as general manager, I made a conscious choice that I had to pull back on my "Cashman must go" narrative in Subway Squawkers. Not only was my anti-Cashman rhetoric futile, but all of the negativity was getting me down. Since then, I have made a conscious choice to have more positive things in...

Thoughts On The Problems With The Yankees Offense

The last seven games for the New York Yankees felt a lot like the last two seasons for the New York Yankees. Especially the 2014 season, when their offense was consistently non-existent. Surely this sounds familiar: A lineup that keeps failing to get hits with RISP. An injured Mark Teixeira taking too long to heal. (I guess that no-fun diet can't do everything.) Alex Rodriguez...

WATCH: Carlos Gomez jaws with Yankees after bat toss

Carlos Gomez rubs a lot of people the wrong way. On Tuesday, he rubbed some members of the Yankees wrong when he popped up in the sixth inning of a 9-0 game and angrily flipped his bat. Gomez came up an inning later with the Astros’ lead extended to 12-0, and he launched a three-run homer off of Chris Capuano. And just to top things off, in the bottom half of the seventh...

Obama says Derek Jeter once hustled him on golf course

Derek Jeter is presumably good at a lot of things, including golf. Unfortunately, no one told the president of the United States about that. President Barack Obama was in Las Vegas on Monday where he spoke at a fundraiser at the home of Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun. While speaking, Obama recalled a previous trip to Vegas in which he hung out with Greenspun and New York Yankees...

Nate Eovaldi: No Fastball is Too Big To Hide

For his career, Nathan Eovaldi has a below-average strikeout rate. He’s been a little bit worse than league average by ERA, and a little bit better than league average by FIP, but even average is a strange outcome for a guy with a top-ten fastball by velocity. Take a look at how much of an outlier Eovaldi is in graphical form. That’s him highlighted, against all starters that...
