David Robertson was drafted by the Yankees in the 17th round of the 2006 draft. Armed with a sneaky fastball and a hammer curve, D-Rob reached the majors by 2008 and was there to stay by 2009. EXPECTATIONS: Robertson had shown flashes of potential in his first three season, but going into the 2011 season the ...
The Yankees fleeced the White Sox when they traded an inconsistent infielder and two not so promising prospects for Nick Swisher after the 2008 season. The idea at the time was that he was going to replace Jason Giambi at first base, but the Yankees signed Mark Teixeira a little more than a month later ...
What is there to say about Mariano Rivera? I often refer to him as God because of his dominance off the field and the way he lives his life and helps others off the field. And because at the age of 41, he is still as good an as consistent as ever. In the future ...
The Yankees have been looking for an everyday center fielder even before Bernie Williams retired and they found their man Curtis Granderson after the 2009 season. EXPECTATIONS: Yankees fans were a bit disappointed after Grandy's 2010 season where he had a .324 OBP and .792 OPS. However, he finished that year with a .360 OBP and ...
I've been kind of dreading this one because there really isn't a lot of good things to say about the season that Phil Hughes had this year. So let's dive right in. EXPECTATIONS: The Yankees and their fans ignored the fact that Hughes posted a 5.15 ERA over his final 18 starts in 2010, chosing instead ...
Even though he was drafted in the third round of the playoffs, Brett Gardner was never a highly touted prospect. The College of Charleston product worked his way through the system nonetheless and was in the major leagues to stay by the 2009 season. He was a regular outfielder the following year and good enough ...
Freddy Garcia used to be a young fireballer for the Seattle Mariners, but few shoulder surgeries later he is more of a junkballer who looks nothing like the pitcher he was. EXPECTATIONS: Garcia couldn't find a team to offer him a guaranteed contract last offseason so he had to settle for a non-guaranteed minor league deal ...
After eight full seasons with the Yankees it is getting to the point where Alex Rodriguez has nearly played as many games in Pinstripes than in both a Mariners and Rangers uniform combined. With that he will also have played more games at third than at shortstop. EXPECTATIONS: A-Rod got paid $31 million to hit fourth ...
Bartolo Colon hadn't pitched a full season in the majors since 2005, but that didn't stop the Yankees from extending a non-guaranteed offer to him after he pitched well in the Winter Leagues while playing for manager Tony Pena. EXPECTATIONS: It's safe to say that nobody expected much from Colon. Even though he pitched well in ...
People have been talking about the downfall of Derek Jeter since 2008. 2009 of course threw everyone off, but after a poor 2010 season it seemed like he would be all but done in 2011. However an offseason adjustment to his swing had a few optimistic about 2011. ABANDONED WORK: Jeter worked with Kevin Long in ...
