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 […]

Prior to Derek Jeter‘s final season, the Yankee that learned the most from the Captain was outfielder Brett Gardner. And Jeter’s influence on Gardner showed in many ways, most notably when Jeter spent almost the entire 2012 season on the disabled list, which caused Gardner to take over as the […]

The way Brian Cashman operated this offseason shows he’s a man of preparation and research. And researching was one of the many things he did prior to acquiring Aaron Hicks, Starlin Castro and Aroldis Chapman. Even though the Yankees have their new acquisitions, it doesn’t seem the Yankees are going to pull […]

When the Yankees compile their 25-man roster at the end of Spring Training, they’ll have to put a mix of veterans and young talent on the field, especially if they want to be versatile. And of course, it would be foolish to assume that the veterans are going to stay […]

Last week, the Yankees stayed relatively quiet with a few trade rumors looming. But this week the Yankees are putting the finishing touches on their bullpen, and are dealing with their arbitration players.

A few days ago, six Yankees filed for arbitration. This evening, two Yankees avoided going to an arbitration hearing.

Both numbers were extremely close […]

Spring Training is 33 days away–or roughly four weeks if you wanted to countdown to a smaller number–and the biggest job the Yankees have to do is flesh out the bullpen. The Yankees already have “The Three Headed Monster” in the back of the pen (Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and […]
