2014 Yankees mid-season report cards: Position Players

Brett+Gardner+Tampa+Bay+Rays+v+New+York+Yankees+AbIdLUUHjcpl

I did something like this at the end of the 2013 season, but with the All-Star Break upon us, I figured it would have been a good time to grade the players on what they've done so far. Each day until the All-Star Break ends, I'll post a mid-season report card for the Position Players, ...

2014-mlb-all-star-game-logo

Well baseball fans, it's the week we've all been waiting for--and personally, it's one of my favorite times of year: It's the All-Star Break. Last year, the story-line was saying goodbye to Mariano Rivera in Queens, New York as the Mets hosted the midsummer classic. This year, the story-line is saying goodbye to Derek Jeter ...

Derek Jeter set to release first book in September

Derek Jeter 15

With all the negative news surrounding the Yankees lately, I thought I would start the day with something a little more lighthearted regarding the Yankees captain and his book publishing company. Just a little bit of light reading before the Yankees go and play the Orioles, which promises to be a good series. Anyway, here's ...

Yankees will make trades…but they won’t sell the farm

Brandon+McCarthy+Arizona+Diamondbacks+v+Pittsburgh+P67RUjeyb0Dl

The Yankees organization always has the mentality that they're in a playoff race every season and if there's something they could do to increase their chances of contention, they'll do it. That's how the Yankees have operated since the days of George Steinbrenner. The Yankees didn't give up last year even with a depleted lineup due ...

Does Derek Jeter deserve to go to the All-Star game?

Derek Jeter 20

There's no question Derek Jeter is a Hall-of-Fame player. There's no question Derek Jeter is The Captain of the Yankees. And of course, there's no question Derek Jeter has won five World Series rings during his tenure with the Bronx Bombers. With this being Jeter's last season, it would make sense for him to go ...

It’s easy being Greene in 5-3 win over Indians

New+York+Yankees+v+Cleveland+Indians+gu6AKEszxekl

When the Yankees brought up Shane Greene to make the spot start for Vidal Nuno, fans weren't expecting to get much from him. I don't even think the Yankees were expecting to get much from him. Greene gave them a quality start and Dellin Betances closed the game in a 5-3 victory over the Cleveland ...
