Late last week, news broke that the Yankees now-former nemesis Jonathan Papelbon had signed a four year $50 million contract with a vesting option for a fifth. As expected, there was a great deal of reaction by Yankees fans, Red Sox fans, Phillies fans, baseball fans across the country. Opinion varied from those calling it ...
"Of all the words of mice and men, the saddest are it might have been." -Kurt Vonegut Think back to the excitement of Joba Chamberlain. Here was a 22 year old pitcher pumping 100 mile per hour fastballs past prodigious power hitters and unleashing devastating sliders that seemed to disappear straight into the dirt. Not only ...
With a less than stellar free agent market and several gaping holes in the rotation, it appears likely that the Yankees will fill at least one of these holes through trade.

Wilson, Mark Buehrle, ...
As many of us have been expecting for months now, CC Sabathia is planning to opt-out of his 7 year, $161 million contract with the Yankees. The backlash from fans has been significant, and can be expected only to get worse as this news is made official after midnight tonight. But this outrage is irrational ...
Yesterday, Rob reported on the rumor that the Yankees are currently considering former Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran. At first glance, it seems to be just another case of a reporter attaching the Yankees and their vast resources to a random big name player. After all, why would the Yankees consider Beltran when they already have ...
