Game 46: A-Rod Returns

After three weeks on the shelf with a hamstring injury, Alex Rodriguez is back in the lineup this afternoon. I wouldn’t say the Yankees have missed him — they went 13-7 during his absence and both Carlos Beltran and Aaron Hicks hit well — but it’s good to have A-Rod back nonetheless. He hit three homers in the six games before the injury and he went deep in a rehab game last...

Wade Boggs wears Yankees World Series ring at Red Sox ceremony (pic)

It will be difficult to determine short of the MLB great confirming it one way or another whether it was an intentional slight or not, but the fact that Wade Boggs wore the World Series ring he earned as a member of the New York Yankees to a ceremony at Fenway Park probably won’t sit well with Red Sox Nation. Boggs, who played for the Boston Red Sox in the first 11 seasons of...

Prospects On Deck: 3B Miguel Andujar – Yankees

As 2016 continues, the Yankees 3rd base position looks awful offensively. Chase Headley‘s slow start this year could be the beginning of his decline in production. Maybe the Yankees get desperate and make a trade or sign someone to fill the void for the time being, but  the current clean-up hitter for the Tampa Yankees could be the one to fill that void in production. #15 prospect...

The Yankees are baseball's version of the duck-billed platypus

With the return of A-Rod and a looming chance that Mark Teixeira could be out with a neck thingy, today's Yankees are the airplane with 12 propellers and one wing.We have two DHs and no 1B. We have three closers and nobody to hold a team if we're behind.We have five starters and no ace. (Maybe Eovaldi, but let's not anoint anyone.)We have nobody - upper case NOBODY - at Scranton...

Yankees Six-Game Win-Streak Ends, Odd Start Time For Chance At New One

Even before the first pitch was thrown last night, I worried that this middle game between the Blue Jays and Yankees would end in Toronto's favor.  Knowing that I was right to be worried, however, does nothing to make me feel better about the Yankees' 8-4 loss, which ended both their six-game winning streak and their first time at .500 since April. My worry began when I learned...

Yankees are built backward and it’s keeping them from winning

Sure, the Yankees have the last three innings covered in games they have the lead. The danger zone for the Yankees remains the first six innings. In a way, the Yankees are built backward. If the offense doesn’t flow early and the starting pitching doesn’t do the job, there is trouble and the Yankees can...

Is it time to start panicking about Chase Headley?

We’re creeping up on the end of the first trimester of the 2016 season, and a slow start is no longer just a slow start. Carlos Beltran had a slow start. Dellin Betances had a slow start. Chase Headley is having a bad season. But is it due mostly to bad luck or bad process? — THE BAD How bad has Chase Headley been this season? Among all qualified MLB third basemen, Headley...

How Alex Rodriguez’s injury has helped the New York Yankees

On May 3, Alex Rodriguez left the game after straining his hamstring running to first base on a ground out. A-Rod was put on the 15-day disabled list and was supposed to return Tuesday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, but he has suffered another setback. Though this may seem like a loss for the New York Yankees, they may have also benefited from A-Rod’s injury and could continue...

Throwing hard isn’t enough for Yankees

The fastball is the basic building block upon which all pitching is built. If you were to describe the act of pitching to an alien, or someone from Norway, you would probably say something to the effect of “the attempt to throw a ball hard into an imaginary box of sorts past someone trying to hit it with a bat”. That’s what a fastball is. You probably wouldn’t get into how...

Former Yankees OF Williams reinventing himself as a musician

WASHINGTON (AP) Bernie Williams stopped being a baseball player in 2006. Being a musician, however, is his lifelong endeavor. Williams' father brought a guitar back from a trip to Spain when Williams was 7, and he fell in love with music after the first few chords. ''I thought I was gonna be a musician,'' Williams said.

The New York Yankees future is bright

At the beginning of the season, the New York Yankees seemed to be a team loaded with old washed-up players. They had just traded some of their most promising prospects to acquire Aroldis Chapman but had very little chance of going very far. Then, just a few weeks into the seasons, an array of injuries opened the door for some of the younger Yankees to move up and fill vacant spots...

Mark Teixeira Needs to Turn it Around

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira is notorious for his slow starts during a season, but his 2016 slump is his worst to date. Through May 23rd, the switch hitter is batting a dismal .193, with only three home runs and 12 RBIs. Teixeira has been reaching base via walk, but that only brings his on-base percentage to .295. The Yankees have been playing better baseball as of late, but...

Are the New York Yankees Surging Back on Track?

The New York Yankees now sit one game under .500 after going 13-6 after an 8-16 start to the season. The Yankees have a huge opportunity ahead of them as they only sit 5 1/2 games back of first place and 12 of their next 13 games are against AL East opponents.
