Javier Vazquez was given just one year to prove he could handle pitching in New York, but he couldn’t. Now, he’ll get another shot, as he was traded to the Yankees for Melky Cabrera and Mike Dunn. The Yankees also received lefty reliever Boone Logan from the Braves, but his numbers aren’t very pretty. Judging from the ...
Some hot stove insiders (Ken Rosenthal, Buster Olney, Ken Davidoff and Mark Feinsand) are tweeting away tonight, and all are saying the Yankees are in “active negotiations” for a starting pitcher tonight — not named Aaron Harrang. Rosenthal and Davidoff are calling this a trade, so that could be referring to Mike ...
Brian Cashman “is believed to have inquired about Carlos Zambrano,” Mike Puma of the NY Post reported early this morning. Putting two and two together, the trade probably included either Melky Cabrera or Brett Gardner. A deal for Zambrano is unlikely because of the high asking price the Cubs have set, Puma said. More importantly, he said Cashman “will almost certainly ...
Signing Nick Johnson changes everything. That is, if he’s healthy enough to play. Without him, I slotted the other offseason acquisition, Curtis Granderson, second in the order. But together, they simply replace the spots of Johnny Damon and Hideki Matsui in 2009. Here’s my projected lineup against right-handed starters: 1. Derek Jeter SS 2. Johnson DH 3. Mark Teixeira 1B 4. Alex Rodriguez 3B 5. Granderson ...
In an interview with Mariano Rivera, he said he will retire “the minute he knows that he doesn’t have it.” Do I believe him? Yes. Will that day ever come? I don’t think so. At 40 years young, he was named the Sporting News’ 2009 Pro Athlete of the Year. He saved his 500th game in 2009, ...
If Twitter had a ‘like’ button, I would definitely have liked Buster Olney’s tweet this morning. If Johnson passes physical,NYY will move on to next targets -- definitely a starting pitcher, and quite possibly Mark DeRosa, if $ are right I like all three points he makes. The Nick Johnson signing secures the DH spot ...
Either someone finally asked the question, or the Yankees finally remembered to mention that they’ll have a new backup catcher in town in 2010. See ya later, Jose Molina, and congratulations, Francisco Cervelli. Nothing against Molina. He was a prototypical backup: good defense, not so much of a hitter and slow as molasses. Cervelli’s a ...
George King had the first report of a return to the Bronx for Nick Johnson yesterday afternoon. Today, King said Johnson and the Yankees are continuing talks about him being the next DH. Once a Yankee, always a Yankee. The Yankees traded away Johnson for Javier Vazquez back in 2003. Vazquez was a bust for the Yanks, and Johnson ...
