Player Profile #176: Brian McCann | C/1B | NYY

Brian McCann is a sellout — for power, that is. Since McCann broke into the league in 2005, he’s caught 9,709.1 innings. That’s the third-most in the league over that span behind Yadier Molina (10,533) and A.J. Pierzynski (10,437). But unlike Molina, McCann’s offense hasn’t gotten better with age. In his early years (2005-2008) McCann regularly had 11-13% strikeout rates...

Yankees don't need a "proven" closer

The New York Yankees currently possess an area of strength, potentially their only one at the present time, in their bullpen. With the addition of Andrew Miller and Justin Wilson to the fold, combined with the return of Dellin Betances, the Bombers have a very strong back end of the bullpen. You know what? The front end is pretty good too.Add Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren (I’m...

Yesterday, the Retrieval Empire retrieved Chase Headley through 2018.Gimme a pill. I know, I know... some of you blokes think it was a pip-pip jolly good idea. Obviously, the Yankee brain trust did. And look at all it did last year with a measly $210 million: Six wins over .500. (Oh, but that's because of the injuries.)Signing Headley means the team will pass on Max Scherzer or James...
