Jorge Posada's Career Will Never Be The Same Again

Yesterday I wrote about the Yankees sending IF/OF Kevin Russo down when Jorge Posada was activated, but that's not what ended up happening. Instead they demoted 1B/DH Juan Miranda and the reason is because Jorge Posada is more of a DH than ever before. See, I knew that Posada was going to come back as a ...

Activate Posada -> Send Russo Down -> DFA Moeller -> Call Up Curtis

The Yankees catcher Jorge Posada is probably coming off the DL today, but there is no clear choice of whom the Yankees will send down to the minors when they activate him. It could be back-up catcher Chad Moeller, but because of the nature of Posada's injury and the position he plays that's probably not a ...

Cashman Made A Mistake Signing Winn

Last offseason the Yankees were in the market for an outfielder that could hit lefties. The tricky thing was that Johnny Damon was a free agent. The Yankees didn't want Damon though. They didn't want to deal with the hassle of dealing with his agent Scott Boras and certainly didn't want to give in to his ...

Yankees Notes: Roster Moves, Scranton, and Protests

The Yankees are coming off of a rather tough stretch where they went a disappointing 4-8. Now that the Red Sox and Rays are behind them they will start rolling against some weaker competition. I'm not sure if that includes the Mets who have been both up and down this year, mostly down. The two ...

After a 10-3 drubbing of the Red Sox last night, the talk of the town was on the health of the Yankees instead of the fantastic pitching by Phil Hughes.  Coming into this series the Yankees had their share of dings and dents, but after game one the list has gotten longer. In the 5th inning, ...

Yankees Notes: The What Did I Miss? Edition

Hey BBD readers, if you haven't noticed I have been gone since Sunday, I was off getting engaged, so I haven't paid any attention whatsoever to the Bombers. The crew here has done a great job keeping you updated on the daily ins-and-outs and what-have-yous, but for my own sake, and the sake of anyone ...

David Adams Not Helping Minor League Logjam

Entering spring training this season it was generally regarded that Ramiro Pena had the inside track to win the Yankees utility infielder position, but despite the experience he received in 2009 it was hardly a given that the job was his because the Yankees had three other possibilities on their 40-man roster - Reegie Corona, ...

Minor League Monday: April 5th, 2010

The Yankees opened up their season with a 9-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox, but plenty of the Yankees organization hasn't started playing yet. Since no minor league games have been played yet, I figured we'd take this edition of Minor League Monday to tackle what's ahead for the Yankees Minor League system. With ...
