The offseason officially starts today

With the Giants win over the Tigers last night, the 2012/13 postseason has officially begun. Yankees fans are going to expect big things this offseason, however their team finished with the best record in the American League and probably needs a few tweaks rather than a major overhaul. The one area where they really need to focus on ...

Derek Lowe will look for a job as a starter

The only reason the Yankees went out and got Derek Lowe this season was because he was available on the scrapheap and a few other relievers were not working out. But they picked him up and he was more or less a solid pitcher for them. In just 23.2 innings, Lowe pitched to a 3.04 ERA ...

Derek Lowe sucks

I'm not just saying that because I'm still bitter about the 2004 ALCS, but Derek Lowe sucks and the Yankees should not be giving him any more important innings (not that last night's was an important inning). Lowe showed up in the Bronx and dazzled the Yankees with four very impressive innings against Texas. With talk ...

Rumors: Yankees preferred Lowe to Burnett in 2008

The offseason between 2008 and 2009 was a monumental one for the Yankees. Not only did it signal a shift in the way the team was contructed, but it also directly led to them winning the 2009 World Series.

Lowe: I’m back to hiding the ball better

Derek Lowe was great last night. Over four innings, he held one of the majors' best offenses scoreless and kept them to just two hits. His stuff looked overpowering as well. How could this be the same 39-year-old who hasn't had a ERA+ of at least 100 since 2008? Lowe things he might have been tipping ...

Derek Lowe picks up a save in his Yankee debut

That picture looks weird doesn't it? Derek Lowe made his debut with the Yankees tonight. He pitched four shutout innings and allowed just two hits to get the save in a 8-2 victory over the Rangers. He's 39 and hasn't been nearly the same pitcher he used to be since 2009 so it doesn't seem realistic to ...

Yankees sign Derek Lowe

It looks like the Yankees will go with David Phelps on Monday in CC Sabathia's spot and will go with Derek Lowe as their new long-man in the 'pen. Have to say, it's a bit surprising they would go with Lowe over some of the pitchers they have in Triple-A, Adam Warren especially. Brian Cashman likes ...

10 Starting Pitchers the Yankees Could Trade For

Yesterday I ran through a list of 10 relievers that could potentially be available to the Yankees through a trade so I thought I would do one today on starting pitchers. So far none of these pitchers are connected to the Yankees in any rumors. This is purely my speculation that they should be available ...
