Since Brian Cashman took primary control of the Yankees' decision-making, I've agreed with pretty much every move he's made - at least to an extent. They haven't all worked out obviously, as is the nature of the game, but I always agreed with the logic behind the move. Sure, Nick Johnson got hurt, but ...
The Yankees did not sign Cliff Lee. They never even tried to sign Jayson Werth or Carl Crawford. They did not trade for Zack Greinke. They would not pony up the money for Bobby Jenks and appear to have little interest in doing so for Rafael Soriano. So what gives? There ...
Now that the Yankees missed out on Cliff Lee, clearly they have money to spend and many have assumed that that money would go into shoring up the Yankees' middle relief. Yet yesterday, Kerry Wood signed with the Cubs for 1 year and $1.5 million and Bobby Jenks went to the Red ...
Cliff Lee was obviously the story of last night, and rightly so, since so many Yankee fans assumed the Yankees would sign him.

With Adrian Beltre on his way out and Kevin Youkilis ready to move to third, the trade for Gonzalez makes a lot of sense. The Red Sox outfield, however, is already filled with Jacoby ...

Like many fans, Close wants the Yankees to appreciate all the things that Derek Jeter has done for the ...
Derek Jeter won his 5th Gold Glove award yesterday, to the chagrin of all but the most ardent Jeter fans. I am certainly a Yankee homer and will find ways to justify things that are good for Yankee players, but this borders on absurdity. It's not just that Jeter isn't the best defensive shortstop ...
So if you're anything like me, you've probably waited until the last minute to choose a Halloween costume. You love the Yankees, but just putting on a Yankee hat and your Rivera jersey isn't really gonna cut it. Here are some last minute ideas: 1. Cliff Lee - Yankee Free Agent Acquisition I'm going as this personally. ...
