On what’s expected to be another quiet day this offseason, let’s begin the day with some rumblings around the league. A former Yankee was suspended, Yoenis Cespedes finally made his decision on where he’ll play in 2016 and Gary Sanchez is making a name for himself. Here’s a few notes […]

CC Sabathia suffers another ugly loss 34
When the Yankees entered the 2015 offseason, Brian Cashman had one goal in mind: upgrade the rotation with as much creativity as possible. Unfortunately, the Yankees were unable to add anyone to the rotation, and it was mainly because the Yankees didn’t agree with the price of starting pitching on the […]

When Mark Teixeira suffered a broken leg in August of 2015, Gregory Bird was called up from Scranton and stepped in. And during the last two months of the season, Bird’s performance almost made the fans not miss Teixeira as much as they thought. But while Bird proved he is capable […]
