A+

With the 2013 season behind us and with no postseason, the only thing left to do is to grade the Yankees (and for them to hope that they get a good grade). Here are the grades I gave to players from highest to lowest: Mariano Rivera: In his final season, Rivera once again dazzled everyone with his ...

Nix, Stewart, and D-Rob shine as the Yankees struggle

jayson-nix

It's no secret that the Yankees are struggling. Their once over-achieving lineup, cobbled together out of necessity, not desire, has gone cold. Their starting pitching, once strong enough to sustain paltry offensive handouts, seems unable to hold its own leads. And their bullpen, which had, early-on, created a watertight final three innings, is starting to ...

The Yankees add Reid Brignac, place Andy Pettitte on the DL, and more

Reid+Brignac

The Yankees offense has taken a step back this year, but they are still one of the best teams in baseball largely because of their pitching staff. That staff took a big hit last week as Andy Pettitte went on the DL with a strained trapezius muscle. The Yankees recalled Vidal Nuno to take his place in ...

Brian Cashman is smart not to take credit for Yankees strong start, and other notes

brian-cashman

The Yankees had some big holes in the lineup going into the season and most weren't afraid to point them out. There was the drop-off behind the plate, in right field, and forget about plugging any hole with Vernon Wells as he was done and that was a horrible trade. Almost a month later and the ...

Bizarro Yankees Surviving Early Slate With Hitting, Not Pitching

travis-hafner

Heading into 2013, the Yankees most glaring weakness figured to be their offense. They led the major leagues in home runs in 2012 with 245, and coming into this season 200 of them were gone from the lineup. The major names missing? Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Nick Swisher, Russell Martin, Raul Ibanez, ...
