David Phelps

The 2013 offseason started off with a bang as the Yankees signed three of the top free agents on the market: Brian McCann, Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran. The Winter Meetings seemed promising for a team that was planning on turning their mediocre season around, but instead of adding players, the Yankees also lost some players. ...

Brett Gardner 11

It was Brian Cashman's final day at the Winter Meetings, so he had a quick briefing session before heading off into the offseason.

With multiple power hitters down the lineup and great starting pitching, the Yankees had the components to be a postseason caliber team.

A-Rod 7

In 2013, the Yankees used multiple third basemen because of injuries and Alex Rodriguez's recovery from hip surgery. The Yankee that played the most third base in 2013 was a player that makes far less than Rodriguez, yet was there when the injury bug hit, before falling to injuries himself: Jayson Nix. There were so many questions ...

Yankees 2013 season report card

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).

Yankees finish season with 5-1 victory over Astros

Reynold 2

It was a very wacky final game of the season, and I guess we should start by saying Joe Girardi wasn't managing this game--at least for the first nine innings. Yep, the one that called all the shots (although Girardi went to the mound to get the pitchers) was none other than Jayson Nix. For ...
