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 ...
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, ...
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 ...
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, ...
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 ...
Thanks to Frankie Piliere we already got a look at some of the Yankee minor leaguers today through his scouting reports. Now, we'll get more of a journalists take on the Yankees farm system instead of a scout's thanks to Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com. First Mayo takes a look at players near the top of the ...
The Yankees cut five more players from the big league camp yesterday, outfielder Greg Golson, righties Mark Melancon and Jonathan Albaladejo, and infielders Juan Miranda and Kevin Russo, according to Marc Carig of The Star-Ledger. The cuts of Miranda and Russo have pretty much cemented the opening day bench ensuring a spot for Ramiro Pena. Backup ...
In case you missed it, the biggest news of the morning is the Yankees decision to waive Chad Gaudin, thus eliminating him from the fifth starter competition and probably from the team altogether. Here are some other news items of note: Jon Heyman wrote a column on Carl Crawford and he had a quote that the Yankees ...
The other day I ran a post on 10 problems the Yankees might have this season and some people wondered why I didn't mention the 5th starter battle. Well, because having two great young pitchers battling over the final spot in the rotation isn't a problem, it's a luxury. But it did make me realize that ...
