Shane Greene felt like he was “dumped” by Yankees

Shane+Greene+Chicago+White+Sox+v+Detroit+Tigers+3nTFxDr3EEvl

After getting a glimpse of what Shane Greene could do last season, the fans figured Greene was going to be a fixture in the Yankees rotation or at least compete for the fifth starter spot with Ivan Nova out until June. Then, rumors started happening and ultimately the Yankees traded Greene to the Detroit Tigers ...

Didi+Gregorius+Boston+Red+Sox+v+New+York+Yankees+mOJkHivfJSKl

We are only a week and a half into the 2015 regular season and the most talked about Yankee hasn't been Alex Rodriguez, who has returned to the team following a 2014 suspension. It's Didi Gregorius. Unfortuntely for Gregorius, he hasn't gotten off on the right foot with the fans. Over the offseason, the Yankees, Arizona ...

Last year the Yankees had a few rookies who came through in a big way for them. Yangervis Solarte played well enough to be paired with a minor leaguer to get the Yankees Chase Headley. Dellin Betances became a fixture in the late innings for the Yankees and a fantastic bridge to David Robertson. He ...

Nathan+Eovaldi+Philadelphia+Phillies+v+New+uIoFnpYbIx9l

Last offseason, the Yankees spent nearly $500 Million to boost the offense (Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran) and the rotation (Masahiro Tanaka). However, this offseason they took a more economical approach, an approach that had fans questioning whether this was George Steinbrenner's Yankees or the economical Yankees. Believe it or not, this offseason was ...

Brian Cashman 4

The last two weeks were a breather from the Hot Stove news, but now that the holiday's are over, it's time for the Yankees to get back to work. Of course, that didn't stop them from making headlines when they made the first trade of 2015. But while the Yankees came out of the gate ...

Yankees begin their transition to the youth movement

Didi+Gregorius+St+Louis+Cardinals+v+Arizona+SVTA7hgaAHgl

  The main Achilles heel in the Yankees organization hasn't been the starting pitching, bullpen or even the offense. It's their lack of young talent in the Yankees farm system. However, this offseason the Yankees finally started a youth movement and have made trades that brought back young quality arms--and a very young shortstop. “We’re much deeper ...

What transactions have the Yankees made so far?

Chase+Headley+Boston+Red+Sox+v+New+York+Yankees+Kga1fKpDrLyl

While the Yankees haven't made a splashy signing--and judging by Brian Cashman's actions, they don't seem to be taking that course of action this offseason--they have been busy. It hasn't been the busy Yankees fans were hoping for, but the roster has been reconstructed of some sort. With Christmas coming up and the Yankees anticipating ...

Hot Stove: Cashman failed to trade for players on the move

Rick+Porcello+Detroit+Tigers+v+Kansas+City+w2x19nL6h7Al

  Before the Winter Meetings began, I speculated the Yankees would make one move by the time the four days in San Diego were up. Instead, the Yankees let David Robertson go to the Chicago White Sox and Brandon McCarthy go to the Los Angeles Dodgers without making either one of them an offer. It turns out, ...
