New York Yankees: Money and talent

As of Tuesday, March 25, the New York Yankees no longer hold the title of having the highest payroll in the MLB. Who would have thought the Los Angeles Dodgers would bump them off their high horse with a payroll for $235 million for 2014. Forbes has still named the Yankees the most valuable team, for the 17th straight year, at a net worth of $2.5 billion… and that’s up 9% from...

Beltran on playing 1st: ‘Please, God, hit it somewhere else’

Carlos Beltran entered Sunday night with 2075 career games under his belt but exactly zero experience at first base. The New York Yankees have been ravaged by injury this season, though, and when Francisco Cervelli came up limping during a 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox, Beltran — a career outfielder — was pressed into service at first. “There’s no tips, my friend,”...

New York Yankees win early series match-up against Boston

Give me one second to celebrate this series win by the New York Yankees because you may not know this but my older brother is the black sheep/Red Sox fan of our family and he will be thoroughly disappointed that our first series match-up against the 2013 World Series Champions was a win for the New York Yankees and not for Boston. Poor boy. Ok, celebration goes on the back burner...

How the New York Yankees will make the playoffs

The New York Yankees missed out on the playoffs for the 2nd time in nineteen years last spring. This year there is still a chance for the boys in stripes. Figuring out exactly what they need to do in order to get there might be harder than actually making it happen.

On the Rotating State of the Yankees Leadoff Spot

When the Yankees entered Spring Training, one of the biggest questions I had was who would be the leadoff hitter? The team seemingly had two players who are designed to be perfect leadoff men . . .
