We are halfway through the Yankees offseason, and the team wasted no time in making moves to bolster their team. They traded away Brian McCann to make Gary Sanchez the everyday catcher.

Yankees made their big moves. Now what?

Prior to the final day of the Winter Meetings, the New York Yankees signed closer Aroldis Chapman to a five-year, $86 Million deal.

Not everyone is happy with the Aroldis Chapman signing

The team for the 2017 season is all set…unless the Yankees do one thing over the last two months. The Yankees have Matt Holliday as their DH / first baseman and Aroldis Chapman as their closer, and if the team doesn’t deal Brett Gardner over the course of the offseason, they’ll figure […]

Unless Yankees trade Brett Gardner, 2017 roster is set

Winter Meetings Rumors: Yankees expressed interest in Sergio Romo

Before Day 3 of the Winter Meetings began, the Yankees had the No. 17 draft pick. At around 12 p.m., all of that changed when the Rockies signed Ian Desmond to a five-year, $70 Million contract. The Rockies now have to forfeit their No. 11 pick to the Washington Nationals, and […]

2016 Winter Meetings: Day 3

Once upon a time, the Yankees had a setup man who gave everyone heart attacks with his successful Houdini acts. He was the closer after Mariano Rivera retired, and following that season he went to the Chicago White Sox on a four-year deal. If you figured I was talking about David Robertson, you […]
