Joe Espada remembers the white shirts. But not the baseball. He never saw that as it whizzed by him that spring training day, lost in the light tops of fans in the stands behind home plate in Jupiter, Fla.

Game 48: Beat the O’s

This afternoon’s Memorial Day matinee at Camden Yards begins a stretch of 13 games in 14 days against AL East rivals for the Yankees. Two weeks from now, we should have a better idea of their status as a division title contender. The Yankees already have the fourth best postseason odds in the league (by a mile), but give me that division title. Not another wildcard game. This stretch...

New York Yankees: Is Chase Headley on his way out?

Earlier this week, the top prospect in the New York Yankees’ system, Gleyber Torres, was called up to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  While that alone qualifies as major news, there were more important implications of this move: in his first game with the RailRiders, Torres played third base.  Torres has predominantly been a shortstop in his minor league career, so a positional...

The bullpen deserves a lot of credit for New York Yankees’ success

The New York Yankees’ bullpen has been stellar, in particular; the backend has been lights out.
