Former Yankee Jayson Nix makes Royals World Series roster

Jayson Nix

When Jayson Nix was with the Yankees, Joe Girardi always appreciated what he brought to the table. Whether it was his defense or the little bit in his bat that he had, Nix never failed to let Girard down. Girardi even gave him a special nickname aside from Nixy: "Jason Nix. Baseball Player." Being labeled a baseball ...

Yankees will make trades…but they won’t sell the farm


The Yankees organization always has the mentality that they're in a playoff race every season and if there's something they could do to increase their chances of contention, they'll do it. That's how the Yankees have operated since the days of George Steinbrenner. The Yankees didn't give up last year even with a depleted lineup due ...

The Yankees recently signed Brendan Ryan so Nix was pushed out of the picture while Daley didn't have much of a chance to stick on the roster. I was expecting the ...

How depleted is the current Yankees lineup?

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

MLBTR predicts Yankees arbitration figures

Brett Gardner 3

Every year MLB Trade Rumor predicts the arbitration numbers for arbitration eligible players in baseball and they have done the same thing this offseason. The method they use to predict arbitration figures is pretty spot on for the most part, and I find it pretty fascinating; I use their website every year to find out ...

Who plays 3B in 2014?

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 ...
