Derek Jeter 2

This isn't the first time in Yankees/Red Sox history where the Red Sox would make a flashy offseason move only to wait for the Yankees to counterattack. In fact, it last happened in 2011 when the Red Sox traded away Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford to the Los Angeles Dodgers, signed Jason Varitek to a one-year ...

David+Robertson+New+York+Yankees+v+Boston+bVILKqu5Bbxl

David Robertson is one of the best relief pitchers on the free agent market. In fact, he proved taking over Mariano Rivera's job in the ninth inning wasn't as impossible as people made it to believe. So when Robertson and his agent said they wanted 'Jonathan Papelbon money' for his services, it didn't really catch ...

Video: Yankees win 1999 World Series

As the 2014 World Series wraps up either tonight or tomorrow, I thought I would post one last throwback World Series video of the Yankees. The anniversary for this particular World Series was yesterday but it's always a good time to watch Mariano Rivera close out the World Series like it's just another game. Honestly, that ...

Five years ago today, the New York Yankees won the 2009 American League pennant, advancing to the World Series and defeating the Philadelphia Phillies for their 27th World Series championship, the most in baseball history.

Throwback Thursday: Yankees win 2000 World Series

Since this week is the 2014 World Series between the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants, I thought I would use this week's Throwback Thursday to capture the Yankees in World Series glory. I had many World Series to choose from (27 of them to be exact), but this week, I went back 14 ...
