Why do the Albert Pujols and Ryan Howard swap rumors pertain to the Yankees? The Phillies are by far the best team in the National League. You could have argued last year that the Dodgers and the Cardinals were on par with the team from the City of Brotherly Love. Realistically, however, there is no ...
Alfredo Aceves has always been a good pitcher. Though for the Yankees he has come out of the bullpen in long relief situations for the majority of his career, the 27 year old righty is making a push for the 5th spot in the rotation. An article on MLB.com notes how he has, to this ...
Alex Rodriguez has been summoned to speak to federal investigators about Dr. Anthony Galea, a Canadian doctor who is being charged with numerous crimes after his assistant, Mary Anne Catalano, was caught crossing the border with HGH. Any story with Arod in the headline will garner significant attention but this story is of little importance ...
2009: Sergio Mitre was inserted into the Yankees bullpen (and occasionally starting rotation) mid-season after rehabbing from Tommy John surgery to help solve the Joba Chamberlain problem. Mitre was primarily used to fill in for Joba when his pitch count prevented him from making a start while making the occasional relief appearance in. For the ...
2009: Chad Gaudin was brought to the Yankees during the beginning of August in order to shore up the starting rotation and provide some bullpen help as a long reliever.

2009: The main opposition to Joba Chamberlain’s bid to be the 5th starter in the Yankees rotation, Phil Hughes has played second-fiddle to Joba for a while now. Joba was the prodigal son, seen as the future of the Yankees bullpen and Hughes was associated more often with Ian Kennedy. Personally I believe that Hughes ...
2009: Uh-oh. Well the first four spots in the Yankees rotation are, barring injury (knock on wood), set. Now the “fun” begins. Joba Chamberlain’s 2009 season was considered a disaster by the New York press and many sports writers and commentators. But, when you actually look at his stats, he has a solid season for ...
2009: Javier Vazquez struggled mightily during his 2004 campaign in the Bronx and was promptly dropped from the Yankees roster. That year, however, should be considered an anomaly. In his 11 year career he has thrown under 200 innings only three times; in 2004 and during his rookie and sophomore years in the MLB. Including ...
