Video: Robertson’s ‘High Socks for Hope’ helps Vets

Very quiet in Yankee-land today, so let's end the night with some feel good news. As you're all aware, David Robertson and his wife Erin are the co-founders of "High Socks For Hope", a nonprofit organization to help the victims hurt by the tornadoes that swept through Tuscaloosa, Alabama in 2011. However, the Robertson's aren't just ...

Hot Stove: David Robertson’s road to four-years, $50 Million could hit a speed bump

David+Robertson+New+York+Yankees+v+Boston+bVILKqu5Bbxl

David Robertson is one of the best relief pitchers on the free agent market. In fact, he proved taking over Mariano Rivera's job in the ninth inning wasn't as impossible as people made it to believe. So when Robertson and his agent said they wanted 'Jonathan Papelbon money' for his services, it didn't really catch ...

Yesterday, we tinkered with the idea of the Yankees possibly pursuing  Max Scherzer after Scott Boras, Scherzer's agent, spoke with the Yankees staff during the GM Meetings. However, while the idea of having Scherzer in pinstripes is intriguing, he most likely won't become a Yankee, especially with a draft pick attached to him. A source told Mark Feinsand ...

Earlier this offseason, the Yankees vowed to stay away from big free agent names James Shields, Max Scherzer, Jon Lester or Pablo Sandoval. However, as Hot Stove season continues, it seems entirely possible the Yankees could revisit their concept on sitting out this offseason and reach out to one of the names on the list. Jon Heyman of ...

Brian Cashman will test his theory and have Alex Rodriguez at first base

Alex Rodriguez 9

Brian Cashman's made it clear Alex Rodriguez can't be counted on at third base until he proves he can play the position, so where's an aging 39-year-old supposed to play on the days the Yankees need the DH spot? Well, how about first base? Ken Davidoff of the New York Post said the Yankees will test the ...

Building Yankees bullpen is Brian Cashman’s top priority

In past years, many believed having all-star players in your lineup would predetermine a World Series Championship. But if there's anything we learned from the 2014 World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals, the key to winning is having a lethal bullpen. The starter could give you six-seven innings, the ...

Yankees begin completing tasks on ‘offseason checklist’ but work still needs to be done

The Yankees had a strong idea of what their offseason checklist was going to look like this offseason; the headlining task on the list was finding a new shortstop. But their checklist got a little longer in October when they fired Mick Kelleher (who has since retired) and Kevin Long (who found a job with the New ...

A week in review: Almonte, Betances, Cervelli, Girardi, Headley, Ichiro, Robertson

David+Robertson+New+York+Yankees+v+Baltimore+sHBRB_tMeVvl

Well, this week wasn't as eventful as last week but the Yankees were still able to fill some holes in their current roster. Unfortunately, that also meant the Yankees had to give up some players to make room for the new acquisitions. Aside from that, their closer turned down the qualifying offer, one fourth outfielder ...
