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 ...
The last bit of news pertaining to the Yankees yesterday was the announcement of the Yankees and Red Sox opening up the 2010 season on April 4, at 8 p.m. on ESPN2 at Fenway Park. That’s going to be one chilly night. Shouldn’t Yankee Stadium host the opener since the Yanks are the defending champions? Here’s another announcement ...
After watching the Red Sox pick up John Lackey yesterday, Yankees fans might be thinking it’s time to bolster the offense. Well, with Hideki Matsui agreeing to sign with the Angels and Mike Cameron agreeing with the Red Sox, there goes two players the Yankees may have been thinking about picking up. Like my post on Roy Halladay and John ...
I asked my twitter followers if they were worried about a Red Sox rotation of Josh Beckett, Jon Lester and John Lackey, and I surprisingly heard two sides to what I thought was a one-sided point. MattLorenzo – Its the best in baseball. 5States – I think they’ll be pretty good, but I ...
I was just checking out Rob Neyer’s top 100 players of “the 0’s” and I stumbled upon an awesome Yankees trivia question. By the way, Neyer ranks Alex Rodriguez second (behind Pujols) and Derek Jeter fourth (behind Bonds). So here it is: What two pitchers of the 0’s struck out over 2,000 ...
