Brian Cashman 4

The last two weeks were a breather from the Hot Stove news, but now that the holiday's are over, it's time for the Yankees to get back to work. Of course, that didn't stop them from making headlines when they made the first trade of 2015. But while the Yankees came out of the gate ...

When the offseason began, the Yankees bullpen wasn't the biggest issue--their biggest issue was the rotation, replacing Derek Jeter and finding a new third basemen. But somehow, while in the midst of filling the obvious holes, the Yankees also managed to subtly rebuild the bullpen. The only reliever that became a free agent during the 2014 ...

If there was one word to describe the 2014 season aside from Derek Jeter's retirement tour, it would have to be "disappointment". The 2014 season was heartbreaking on many levels: Mark Teixeira and Carlos Beltran were constantly hurt, Brian McCann didn't hit to his potential for the first four months of the season, the rotation ...

While the Yankees haven't made a splashy signing--and judging by Brian Cashman's actions, they don't seem to be taking that course of action this offseason--they have been busy. It hasn't been the busy Yankees fans were hoping for, but the roster has been reconstructed of some sort. With Christmas coming up and the Yankees anticipating ...

When the Yankees won the 2009 World Series, it seemed like they were on top of the world and nothing could bring them down. When the Yankees made the postseason in 2010, 2011 and 2012, it seemed like the Yankees just had to add a few pieces here and there in order to make the ...

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 ...

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 ...
