Yankees roster plans between now and the All-Star break

The Yankees made an interesting move yesterday when they claimed outfielder Darnell McDonald off waivers from the Boston Red Sox. It didn't make sense at the time considering that he becomes the sixth Yankees outfielder, but George King of the NY Post got to the bottom of it. No, they will not be cutting Dewayne Wise ...

Yankees prefer not to go “outside” to replace CC, Pettitte

It happened so fast. One minute the Yankees rotation was fine and the next minute CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte are both on the disabled list. If you had predicted that yesterday, I wouldn't have bought it, but yet here it is. CC is expected to miss at least two starts, Pettitte at least two ...

A look back at the free agents the Yankees missed out on

The 2012 free agent pool was fairly decent last offseason and, as usual, there was tons of speculation on who the Yankees would go after.  Regardless, they were pretty economical in gaining assets through savvy trading (Michael Pineda), picking up cast offs (Raul Ibanez), and re-signing critical assets (CC Sabathia, Andrew Jones, Eric Chavez).
