The Yankees had some big holes in the lineup going into the season and most weren't afraid to point them out. There was the drop-off behind the plate, in right field, and forget about plugging any hole with Vernon Wells as he was done and that was a horrible trade. Almost a month later and the ...
Spahn, Sain and pray for rain. The 1948 Braves had two good pitchers, Warren Spahn, and Johnny Sain, who were honored in a poem called "Pray for rain" because, well, that was the only way it was thought they could win. For the second day in a row the Yankees were rained out which hurts because the ...
Heading into 2013, the Yankees most glaring weakness figured to be their offense. They led the major leagues in home runs in 2012 with 245, and coming into this season 200 of them were gone from the lineup. The major names missing? Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Nick Swisher, Russell Martin, Raul Ibanez, ...
(Syndicated from Pinstripe Pundits). We may be only seven games into the season, but Vernon Wells has shown some unexpected life with his bat. In his first 26 plate appearances, he’s hitting .381/.500/.762, leading the team in the latter two categories. I understand the quandary of reading into sample size performance, but Wells appears to have made an ...
A lot of people, myself included, have accused the Yankees of caring more about profits than winning this offseason, but despite that they will set a record with their payroll at $230.4 million this offseason. While that is technically true it is how they've spent their money, with relatively little money committed after this season limiting ...
The Yankees announced that they have claimed righty reliever Sam Demel off waivers from the Houston Astros and designated righty Dan Otero for assignment to make room for him on the 40-man roster. Demel, 27, has played in parts of three seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks. In 63.2 innings he has a 4.95 ERA with a ...
It was a busy day for the Yankees yesterday, but not a pretty one. The Yankees began the day yesterday by claiming right handed reliever Dan Otero off waivers from the San Francisco Giants.. Then they made the Vernon Wells trade official by sending outfielder Exicardo Cayones and lefty reliever Kramer Sneed to the Angels. They continued ...
Nothing big in the news this morning so rather than rehash the Vernon Wells trade (because it makes me throw up in my mouth every time I think about it) I thought that I would take a look at the potential Yankees roster. The injuries have made things very difficult both in trying to find replacements ...
When I woke up this morning I felt like the Vernon Wells trade was just a (bad) dream. Unfortunately when I opened Google Reader the stark reality hit me. Vernon Wells is a Yankee and somehow, despite claiming they were poor all offseason, they are paying $13 million over two years for him, according to ...
The Yankees and Angels are discussing a deal that would send Vernon Wells to the Bronx for a low-level prospect with the Angels picking up most of the $42 million he's owed over the next two seasons, according to Jeff Passan, Mark Feinsand, and David Waldstein. The deal isn't official yet, but a source told Feinsand ...
