Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner speaks, addresses several topics in brief period

hal-steinbrenner

(Syndicated from Gotham Hub Baseball). In the past when George Steinbrenner spoke you listened, especially since they were comments that often generated news and sometimes tweaked people such as second-guessing the manager or referring to Dave Winfield as “Mr. May” in 1985. That’s a bygone era and the public comments from Yankee ownership, especially managing general partner ...

Yankees swept by pathetic Mets in Subway Series

vernon-wells

The Mets are awful this season. They really are. They have one of the worst offenses in baseball, one of the worst bullpens and, on nights when Matt Harvey isn't pitching, one of the worst rotations too. Still, they somehow managed to sweep the Yankees in the road-and-home four game Subway Series. What does that make ...

The Yankees add Reid Brignac, place Andy Pettitte on the DL, and more

Reid+Brignac

The Yankees offense has taken a step back this year, but they are still one of the best teams in baseball largely because of their pitching staff. That staff took a big hit last week as Andy Pettitte went on the DL with a strained trapezius muscle. The Yankees recalled Vidal Nuno to take his place in ...

Granderson is back, but the Yankees lose Travis Hafner

Travis+Hafner

Curtis Granderson is officially back, but that tough question as to which outfielder sits in his absence may not be as big a deal as it seemed a few days ago because Travis Hafner could be out for a little while with pain in his right shoulder. The Yankees sent him for a MRI, which came ...

Granderson poised to come off the DL, Nunez will go on, and Nova has a setback

New York Yankees Curtis Granderson

It never ends with the Yankees injuries this season. I feel like injuries are at least half of what I write about, but there is finally some good news -- Curtis Granderson is poised to come off the DL on Tuesday. Granderson, who admits that he is still not quite at 100 percent, is expected to ...

Just as dumb as ever: Joba Chamberlain fights with Mariano Rivera

joba-chamberlain

Joba Chamberlain has done some dumb things while with the Yankees with his DUI and the time he broke his ankle on a trampoline being the dumbest. Unfortunately this latest incident, a very public run-in with Mariano Rivera, shows that Joba's not exactly getting any smarter with age. Yesterday, in front of reporters and fans, Joba ...
