Last weekend, the Yankees got back two players who should help inject life and fight back into the team. Andy Pettitte, with his glare of steel and nerves of the same, roused the Bronx in a way I don’t believe I’ve heard in years. When it was over, The House That George Built shook with a ...
The Yankees have plenty of trade chips in the minor leagues, but at the Major League level there really isn't much other teams' would be interested in. Usually it's because contracts are too big for other teams to take on, but even the players with reasonable contracts are hard to trade and get fair value ...
The Yankees offense was pathetic last week, but they got a boost on Sunday when Nick Swisher returned to the lineup. The outfielder missed the previous six games with a tight hamstring, but returned as the DH on Sunday and went 1-for-5 with a solo home run. After the game Swisher told reporters that he felt ...
With the injuries to Nick Swisher and Brett Gardner, the Yankees outfield hasn't been pretty whether it is watching Andruw Jones running in slow-motion or Raul Ibanez completely butchering everything that is hit near him. It won't be that way for much longer as Nick Swisher has already begun taking batting practice and Brett Gardner is ...
After 16 games (roughly 10 percent of the season) gone, let's take a look at the progress report for the 2012 Yankees. Each batter must have at least 10 games played to qualify for a grade. All stats present are as of 24 April. Derek Jeter- A+ ‘El Capi-tan’ is hitting .411 with a 1.080 OPS, scored ...
Joel Sherman of the NY Post has been on the Yankees beat longer than any other writer for any publication. This means that he often has better sources and better insight as to what the Yankees future plans are. What he says is going to happen, usually ends up happening. That is not good news for ...
Nothing was going right for the Yankees as Freddy Garcia didn't have it and they fell behind 9-0 by the 5th inning. However, Mark Teixeira homered in the 6th to get the Yankees on the board, Nick Swisher hit a grand slam in the 7th, and then Teixeira homered again as they pulled to within ...
It was a bit odd to see the Rays shift so significantly against Curtis Granderson on Opening Day, but by the end of the weekend it became normal to see the Rays use a shift in some form or another against nearly every player in the lineup. “That’s a defense I’ve never seen before,” Nick Swisher ...
Defense is a difficult area for statisticians to analyze because there are so many different ways to define value in a player’s defensive abilities. While statisticians have made huge strides in finding new ways to compare players’ defensive value, most defensive metrics are new and do not provide an ironclad argument of defensive talents. However, ...
With Russell Martin a year away from free agency and Jesus Montero recently traded, Austin Romine could potentially become a big part of the Yankees future and quickly. This season is a big one in determining how quickly Romine becomes the future. He is off to a bad start though as it came out that he ...
