With less than a week to go until the Texas Rangers visit Minute Maid Park on Sunday, March 31 to play the Houston Astros, the 2013 MLB season will be underway shortly. The Rangers will be sending lefty Matt Harrison to the hill, while right-hander Bud Norris will start for the Astros in the team’s ...
The Yankees were interested in signing Lance Berkman to fill their vacant DH position, according to Ken Davidoff of the NY Post. Unfortunately, Berkman signed a one-year, $11 million deal with the Texas Rangers instead. Berkman played for the Yankees back in 2010 and let him walk after just 37 games, but they were interested in ...
At a press conference to announce his comeback, Andy Pettitte said that his heart was in New York and that he was either coming back to the Bronx or not coming back at all. That didn't stop Lance Berkman, his former teammate with the Astros, from trying to recruit Pettitte to join him with the St. ...
The Yankees acquired Lance Berkman, who had a no trade clause, at the trade deadline last season and part of getting him to waive that NTC was an agreement that they wouldn't pick up his $15 million option. It was then that we knew he wouldn't be staying long and yesterday he made it official ...

Free agents fall into three different categories, there are type-A free agents (the best players), type-B free agents (not quite the elite), and everybody else. If a team has a type-A or B free agent and they offer them ...
This was expected, but now it's official. Via Chad Jennings of the Journal News: As expected, the Yankees have declined the option to extend the contracts of Kerry Wood, Lance Berkman and Nick Johnson through next season. All three will become free agents. My guess is that the only one of these three ...
Via the NY Daily News: "I didn't have a great winter last year," the general manager said. "A lot of the things I wound up doing didn't benefit us as much as I wish they would. Some didn't benefit at all." Yeah, Cashman had a bad offseason. Fresh off winning the 2009 World Series, ...
The Yankees have team options for three players, Kerry Wood ($11M), Lance Berkman ($15M) and Nick Johnson ($5.75M) and it doesn't appear that they will pick up any of the three. “They’re all pretty obvious,” Brian Cashman said. “I have to sit in the office and look at the numbers and stuff ...
