We are almost a month into the 2013 season, and Yankee universe has not been sucked into an injury-infested black hole of playoff-missing nothingness. The team has been competitive, is still hitting home runs, and could actually use better pitching believe it or not. The names have changed, and the ages have surged even further upward, ...
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 ...
(Syndicated from Pinstripe Pundits). Heading into spring training, the Yankees’ catching situation was in disarray. The team was set to split the catching duties between two lackluster candidates—Chris Stewartand Francisco Cervelli. Stewart had the reputation of being a solid defender and excellent pitch framer, but was all sorts of bad offensively with a career 58 wRC+. Cervelli on ...
It was a surreal and unsettling sight on the Yankee Stadium infield Saturday afternoon when the Bombers came out for the top of the 9th. Their infield depth stripped to the bone with Eduardo Nunez again victim of a hit-by-pitch and backup infielder Jayson Nix already removed for a pinch hitter, the Yankees had to ...
More news from the Biogenesis scandal and more bad news for Alex Rodriguez. Investigators were told by ex-Biogenesis employees that documents had been put up for sale by people connected to the clinic and that Alex Rodriguez, through an intermediary, had attempted to purchase them in order to destroy them, according to Michael Schmidt of the ...
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, ...
With the Yankees now off to a 1-3 start to the season, they are pulling out the stops and have activated Phil Hughes off of the DL early and have sent David Phelps to the bullpen for Saturday afternoon's start. To make room for Hughes on the roster, the Yankees sent Cody Eppley down to the ...
Even going back to his days with the Cleveland Indians, CC Sabathia has always an easy choice to tab as the Opening Day starter. He's a leader, a workhorse, and a damn good pitcher. Unfortunately he doesn't do well pitching on Opening Day. Look at these lines from the past few Opening Days: 2013: 5 IP, 8 H, ...
For the past few years Brian Cashman has done nothing but rave about how much he liked Russell Martin so it was a shock to see the Yankees let him go to Pittsburgh without them making a single offer. It was especially shocking considering how barren the free agent catching market was and the fact that ...
The Yankees lost 2-0 yesterday, but Curtis Granderson broke his arm. • Brian Cashman said the Yankees are not looking for catching. • It sounds like it's between Francisco Cervelli and Chris Stewart. • Don't expect a Jorge Posada comeback. "I know I can't play the game," Posada said. • Derek Jeter is expected to begin playing in games on March 10. • Dellin ...
