YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Have the Yankees hit rock bottom? Or could it get even worse?

So I was out and about Saturday morning and early afternoon, doing a three-mile fun run at Clove Lakes Park, going to the farmers' market, buying groceries at Trader Joe's, doing other errands, and chatting with different people I know in the small town that is Staten Island.Lots of people I saw today complimented me after seeing the Staten Island Advance article about me in print...

Jacob Lindgren to join big league club on Sunday

It appears as if Yankee fans won’t have to wait much longer to see Jacob Lindgren in the Bronx. Joel Sherman of the New York Post tweeted that the 21-year old left-handed pitcher will be called up prior to Sunday’s finale against the Texas Rangers. Lindgren was the Yankees’ first draft choice in the 2014 draft (2nd round selection), and in just one season advanced all the way...

The Yankees are succeeding despite the numbers

​ If there’s anything I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s that the AL East is strange. The Boston Red Sox have gone from last to first and back to last. The Toronto Blue Jays are typically supposed to be better than they are, the Tampa Bay Rays consistently exceed expectations regardless of doubts, and the Baltimore Orioles won 96 games last season. Which leaves...

The Yankees' big problem is not pitching, hitting or fielding. It is a dark, soul-crushing boredom

Last night, I had a reason to watch the Yankees. His name was Slade Heathcott.First time he came up, we were already down 7-0. I figured the game was over. We don't score eight runs in a weekend, much less one night. Still, I dropped what I was doing and rushed the TV. And he didn't let me down: He laced a drive to left-center, ran like a banshee, slid headfirst for a double. It...

Minor League team cancels 'A-Rod Juice Box Night'

Alex Rodriguez is often the target of slander and jokes. On Friday, it was the Charlotte Stone Crabs, a minor league affiliate of the Rays, who had the Yankees designated hitter in their sights. The Stone Crabs planned to hand out the above pictured juice box which reads “The Sports Drink. 100 % Juiced. Side...Read More

New York Yankees: Slade Heathcott’s wild journey to the big leagues

Yankee fans got some disappointing news this week when it was announced that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury had been placed on the 15-day DL with a knee injury. To that point of the season, the former All-Star had been one of the Yankees’ most productive players, boasting a .324 batting average and a team leading 14 stolen bases. Add that to the fact that the Bronx Bombers have...

Yankees game 42 lineup: 5/22/15

Game time: 7:05 pm ET – Yankee...

Rays affiliate removes any mention of ‘A-Rod Juice Box Night’ (photo)

Alex Rodriguez arguably has been saying and doing all the right things in his return to Major League Baseball after serving a season in exile. And while for some it may be easy to forgive and forget, there are others who insist Rodriguez’s sordid history makes him an individual unworthy and undeserving of even a...Read More The post Rays affiliate removes any mention of ‘A-Rod...

Mason Williams on the way up

With Slade Heathcott‘s call up to the big leagues, the Yankees announced earlier today that Mason Williams has been called up to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre from Double-A Trenton. The promotion is well earned for Willams, who’s resurrected his standing as a top Yankees prospect since falling off from his early success in the organization after he was drafted. Williams was...

New York Yankees: Expectations for Slade Heathcott

After a heartbreaking 8-6 loss to the Nationals via a Ryan Zimmerman two-run, walk-off homerun, the Yankees received more bad news after learning that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury sprained his right knee and would need a 15-day DL stint.  As a result, the Yankees called up former first round draft pick Slade Heathcott from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  Once a highly touted...

Is Michael Pineda a true ace?

There is little denying the fact that Michael Pineda has been the best pitcher in the New York Yankees rotation this season. He might have been the best pitcher during his time with the club last season as well. Being the best surrounded by mediocrity might make one the staff ace, but does not necessarily qualify one as a “true ace.” Is Pineda ready to be that type of pitcher...

Missing Ellsbury's Effort & Cursing Beltran's Lack Therof

A 2-7 road trip. As Joe Girardi would say, "It's not what you want." Last night was really frustrating, thanks, in part, to one Carlos Beltran.If he had made any sort of an effort to catch that pop fly in the bottom of the seventh, the Yankees might have gone on to get out of the inning without (what turned out to be) the winning run scoring. He didn't, and the Yankees lost the last...

Yankees Lose To Nats as They Continue To Await Results of Project Eovaldi

It’s still May, so perhaps it is still too soon to judge Nathan Eovaldi. He has just 8 starts under his belt and they are his first in the American League and his first with a new team. When Cashman traded Martin Prado, a fan favorite during his brief Yankees tenure, and David Phelps for Eovaldi, it was with the understanding that Eovaldi was a bit of a project. His fastball...

New York Yankees: stay healthy and win the division

The New York Yankees head into Tuesday on the heels of a nine game road trip with the finale being an Interleague two-game matchup against the Washington Nationals. The Yankees’ offensive woes continue to haunt the team, especially as of late with a 2-5 losing skid in their past seven games. As the story has been all season, the bats have yet to produce at a consistent level. Regardless...

Yankees receive good and bad injury news

The New York Yankees received some good and then bad news concerning their starting pitchers on the disabled list. Masahiro Tanaka came out of Monday’s 29-pitch bullpen session without any issues and could begin a rehab assignment later this week while Ivan Nova is move one step closer to appearing in some minor league games. Unfortunately, the bad news was that Chase Whitley...

Yankees Continue To Slump As Offense Hits the Skids

That’s two back to back series losses for the New York Yankees. Neither one was particularly close. The Yankees lost 3 of 4 to the division rival Tampa Bay Rays last week and then dropped 2 of 3 to the Kansas City Royals by a combined score of 19-6. Sunday’s game, which they dropped 6-0, was the first time this season that the Yankees were shut out, a fate they narrowly avoided...

When is the Stephen Drew Experience going to be over for the Yankees?

There are many things in this world I just don't understand. Calculus. How to drive a stick shift. How to solve a Jumble. Why Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi have such faith in Stephen Drew.Why does Drew still have a job? His current numbers are .177/.264/.345. Those are the lowest numbers of any second baseman in the American League. They are also lower than any other second baseman...

Last night, 31,871 Kansas Citians turned out to watch two divisional leaders go at it. The seats at Kaufman Stadium were 84 percent full.Not bad.

Alex Rodriguez not bothered by Jorge Posada’s remarks

Former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has released a book recently. In his tour promoting said book, Posada indicated that he doesn’t find it fair that players have been known to cheat, including former teammates Roger Clemens and Alex Rodriguez. “I don’t think it’s fair for the guys that have been in the Hall of Fame that played the game clean,” Posada said on...

Yankees are back and better than we all thought

Everyone loves a good underdog story. When a team that hasn’t been very good in a few years and didn’t look like anything close to a contender when the season started comes out of the gate hot, baseball fans have found their new favorite team to rally around. This year, no team embodies that scrappy, can-do spirit like the New York Yankees. Yes, the little team that could...
