Are The New York Yankees Ready For 2015?

The off-season and New York Yankees go better together than ugly on a pig or butter on bread. It seems like every winter, a big time deal is made that brings a superstar to the Bronx. This year, we have yet to see a blockbusting headline come out of Yankee Stadium. Make no mistake about it Brian Cashman has completed trades that fans question, but a triple digit contract hasn...

New York Yankees Retooling in Alternative Fashion

The New York Yankees are in the process of transitioning out the old and bringing in the new. With the acquisitions of shortstop Didi Gregorius and hard-throwing right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, it’s clear the Yankees are in a transition phase, attempting to field a younger and more athletic team. Both of these players are nowhere near finished products, but they are players that...

It Appears A Yankees Youth Movement Has Begun

When I heard yesterday that Martin Prado had been traded to the Miami Marlins, the first thing I thought was that Rob Refsnyder, the Yankees' highly touted prospect, would definitely get a chance to compete for the 2B job this coming Spring Training. Apparently, I was in the minority.  Everyone else was crying. There were posts of despair all over social media about the loss of...

Derek Jeter can't find baseball team to buy: Report

Pity poor Derek Jeter. And I don't mean poor in a financial sense. Or any sense, come to think of it. The retired former Yankees shortstop has a sizable amount of cash at his disposal (net worth $185 million) with plenty of investors more than willing to throw money at the thought of partnering with the MLB legend. But sadly for The Captain, he reportedly still isn’t having...

So long, Preston Claiborne: Go forth and grow your beard

In May of 2013, the plucky, irrepressible Yankees were the surprise team of the AL East, and yet - amazingly - some naysayers remained. The pitching staff was reeling from injuries. We were beyond Cesar Cabral and entering Vidal Nuno. If not for the power hitting duo of Vernon Wells and Travis Hafner, all would be lost. That's when the Yankee brain trust turned to a name that, frankly...

NEW YORK — The Yankees acquired pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, outfielder Garrett Jones and minor league pitcher Domingo German from the Miami Marlins on Friday for versatile Martin Prado and pitcher David Phelps.

Yankees trade Prado to Marlins for Eovaldi in 5-player deal

The San Diego Padres have been the most surprising team of the offseason, making three blockbuster trades to become a contender. But the Miami Marlins are also making some intriguing moves, following through on their promise to field a contending team after signing Giancarlo Stanton to a gigantic 13-year, $225 million contract. The Marlins acquired infielder Martin Prado from the...

Good news: Randy Levine says Yankees unlikely to add lavish salary

We’ve heard that the New York Yankees would not spend lavishly this offseason quite frequently from general manager Brian Cashman, and Thursday the Bombers’ president Randy Levine echoed those statements in an interview with Newsday’s David Lennon."We're always out there looking, but it has to be tempered by the reality of the organization," Levine said.

Red Sox Cashing in on Derek Jeter

Thirteen months ago, when the New York Yankees shelled out $12 million to keep Derek Jeter for one more season, many scoffed saying he was past his prime and not worth it. And who knows, after posted a career-low .256 and an overall yuck of a season…maybe they were right. However, the Yankees (and, really, anyone with a pulse) financially made the best move they could have. Simply...

Yankees don't need a "proven" closer

The New York Yankees currently possess an area of strength, potentially their only one at the present time, in their bullpen. With the addition of Andrew Miller and Justin Wilson to the fold, combined with the return of Dellin Betances, the Bombers have a very strong back end of the bullpen. You know what? The front end is pretty good too.Add Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren (I’m...

Yankees GM: Alex Rodriguez To Serve As Full-Time Designated Hitter

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez faces a diminished role in his return to the New York Yankees, who have stripped A-Rod of his third-base job and plan to limit his role to full-time designated hitter — at most.

Cashman: A-Rod now Yankees’ full-time designated hitter

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman revealed on Tuesday that it apparently is the team’s intent to have Alex Rodriguez serve as its full-time designated hitter, not as the de facto third baseman.

Yankees Re-Sign Chris Capuano To One-Year Deal Worth $5 Million

NEW YORK — Chris Capuano is staying with the New York Yankees, just like fellow free agents Chase Headley and Chris Young. The 36-year-old left-hander agreed Tuesday to a $5 million, one-year contract. He started last season with Boston and had a 4.55 ERA in 28 relief appearances. He was released July 1 and signed with Colorado three days later but never made it to the majors with...

Thoughts On The Headley Signing

"Headley is deadly!"We heard this phrase a lot last year after Chase Headley was traded to the Yankees last season. However, now that he has signed a free agent deal with the team, I am worried that it will turn into something more along the lines of "Headley's contract is deadly!"Four years/$51 million includes one year too many for a player with a history of back problems who hit...

Jorge Posada bilked out of $11 million in 'jaw-dropping' money scam: Report

Former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has reportedly lost $11 million in a money-management scam that his lawyers have labeled "jaw-dropping." The Puerto Rican catcher, once worth $117 million, was approached by a pair of Cuban-American men in 1999 who targeted Latin American baseball stars. Juan Carlos Collar and Anthony Fernandez proceeded to take total control of Posada...

What re-signing Chase Headley really means: The players we will not get

Yesterday, the Retrieval Empire retrieved Chase Headley through 2018.Gimme a pill. I know, I know... some of you blokes think it was a pip-pip jolly good idea. Obviously, the Yankee brain trust did. And look at all it did last year with a measly $210 million: Six wins over .500. (Oh, but that's because of the injuries.)Signing Headley means the team will pass on Max Scherzer or James...
