Here are some notes: Javier Vazquez gets his rotation spot back today. He was 1-0 with a 2.00 ERA in 9 innings during his bullpen demotion. Alex Rodriguez is ...
There were no updates yesterday because I was busy with a family member's wedding. There is a silver lining to that, on my way home I stopped at the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY and got plenty of great Yankees related pictures that I will post later today. If you have never been to ...
The trade deadline is barely over a month away and the Yankees, as usual, are expected to be buyers again this season. Thanks to an over $200 million payroll they really don't have many needs, but they do need some bullpen help and another bat. One player who is on the trade block who could help ...

It's true that their offense has been inconsistent of late, but with two of their biggest pieces Jorge Posada and Alex Rodriguez missing time that his to be expected.

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 top of the Yankees' starting order was as hot as a pistol, with Brett Gardner, Nick Johnson, Jorge Posada, and Robinson Cano going ...
