Pentland on Beltran, Gregorius, Rodriguez and Teixeira

Alex Rodriguez 9

Two of the main culprits that didn't hit during the 2014 season were none other than Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran, but the both had a contributing factor to their poor offense: health.

Didi+Gregorius+St+Louis+Cardinals+v+Arizona+SVTA7hgaAHgl

  The main Achilles heel in the Yankees organization hasn't been the starting pitching, bullpen or even the offense. It's their lack of young talent in the Yankees farm system. However, this offseason the Yankees finally started a youth movement and have made trades that brought back young quality arms--and a very young shortstop. “We’re much deeper ...

Every year around Christmas, the holiday cheer is at a maximum and baseball news slows down to a halt. It was the same scenario this year where the Yankees did next to nothing this week, but they lost a few players, were hit with a hefty bill and one ex-Yankee has faith in Alex Rodriguez's ...

Masahiro+Tanaka+Chicago+White+Sox+v+New+York+OK4kYAsMx8Il

If there was one word to describe the 2014 season aside from Derek Jeter's retirement tour, it would have to be "disappointment". The 2014 season was heartbreaking on many levels: Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran were constantly hurt, Brian McCann didn't hit to his potential for the first four months of the season, the rotation ...

Chase+Headley+Boston+Red+Sox+v+New+York+Yankees+Kga1fKpDrLyl

While the Yankees haven't made a splashy signing--and judging by Brian Cashman's actions, they don't seem to be taking that course of action this offseason--they have been busy. It hasn't been the busy Yankees fans were hoping for, but the roster has been reconstructed of some sort. With Christmas coming up and the Yankees anticipating ...

The Good and The Bad: Yankees outfield

Brett+Gardner+New+York+Yankees+v+Toronto+Blue+u9ajb3TQwwIl
