YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Furious Yankees Take Revenge On Blue Jays

In a way, the Yankees can thank J A Happ for their win last night. After Luis Severino nicked Josh Donaldson on the elbow protector, Happ had what amounted to a hissy fit when Chase Headley stepped into the batters box. Two brawls and several ejections later, the Yankees were furious, and although Dellin Betances tried to give it back, revenge was taken out against the Toronto Blue...

Gary Sanchez recalls crossing paths with Jose Fernandez

TORONTO — Gary Sanchez sat next to Jose Fernandez signing autographs before the two played against each other in the 2012 South Atlantic League All-Star game when both young stars were in Class-A. “He was a really good person,” Sanchez said through a translator before the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 7-5 Monday’s at Rogers...

Yankees refuse to let playoff hopes slip away without a fight

TORONTO — The odds favor this coming week marking the bleakest Yankees homestand in a generation. So give Joe Girardi’s guys some credit for arriving back in The Bronx on a wave of light. “Our team has been fighting all year,” Mark Teixeira said, following a memorably crazy 7-5 victory over the Blue Jays Monday...

Game 156 Recap: One Last Exciting Game

The beginning of this game really doesn’t warrant a recap, but since it did in fact occur it should be at least mentioned. As a former college level baseball player I never understood or agreed with the act of “clearing the benches.” On rare occasions it may be warranted, to an extent, if one of your own players is being ganged up on by several members of the opposing team...

Things just keep getting worse for Yanks closer Dellin Betances

TORONTO — Dellin Betances’ nightmare continued in Monday’s 7-5 win over the Blue Jays, when the closer didn’t record an out while trying to protect a four-run lead in the ninth. He faced just three batters, walking two and stumbling as he tried to field a bunt from the other. Betances was yanked after walking...

Yankees rally late, hang on for 7-5 win over Blue Jays after benches clear

This team still has a little magic left, huh? The Yankees brawled and bat-flipped their way to a dramatic 7-5 win over the Blue Jays in their final road game of the season Monday night. That was satisfying win. Very, very satisfying. I’m going to busy for a little while and this game is going to take a while to recap anyway, so here’s a placeholder. I leave you with a win probability...

Benches clear in Yankees-Blue Jays game, Joe Girardi ejected

Tensions were high during Monday night’s Yankees-Blue Jays game after batters from each team were thrown at by opposing pitchers. It started when Josh Donaldson got plunked on the elbow by Luis Severino, which looked to be purposeful, although it’s hard to know for sure. The Jays clearly thought the intent was there, because they responded by having J.A. Happ hit Chase Headley...

A Yankees Fan Finds Grief For Jose Fernandez

I remember exactly where I was when I heard the news of Thurman Munson’s death. I was at the kitchen table doing something—I don’t remember what. The radio was tuned to 1010 WINS, an all-news station. Back then, in 1979, breaking news on the station was preceded by a series of shrill beeps. I heard the beeps and sat up in my seat, curious to know just what news was breaking...

Yankees Outright J.R. Graham

The Yankees announced this afternoon that they’ve outrighted reliever J.R. Graham to Triple-A, thus removing the 26-year-old right-hander from the 40-man roster. New York claimed Graham off waivers from the Twins earlier this year after Minnesota designated the 2014 Rule 5 Draft pick for assignment. Graham stuck in the Twins’ bullpen all throughout the 2015 campaign, with manager...

Game 156: The Final Road Game

After six months of red-eye flights and swanky hotels, the Yankees are playing their final road game of the 2016 season tonight. They’re an awful 35-45 on the road, which is their worst record away from Yankee Stadium since going 35-46 in 1992. Things aren’t so bad at home. The Yankees are 44-31 with a +21 run differential in the Bronx. Anyway, Luis Severino returns to the rotation...

Finding Success

One way or another, the 2016 season is going to end in a week’s time.

There was a time when we’d consider such a happening an unwavering failure...

The Yankees muddled around .500 for most of the year and only in August did they start to play with any kind of consistency, going 16-11 that month and then going 7-2 during the first week of September, including a sweep of the very same Toronto Blue Jays they have faced over the past three games.The Yankees got as close as 1.0 game within a Wild Card...

Game 155 Recap: The Yankees are Clippard by the Jays

The Yankees lost again. The death spiral that began in Boston last weekend continued into this weekend. This time, the Yankees offense, which went 33 innings without scoring, finally scored a run in the seventh inning of Sunday afternoon’s game. Then, perhaps even more miraculously, they scored two in the ninth to take a 3-2 lead. But alas, it was not meant to be because the Yankees’...
