On this day in Yankees history – 1932 & 1938

On May 30, 1932, in a pre-game ceremony the Yankees dedicated a plaque in memory of former skipper Miller Huggins. This would be the start to famous Monument Park. The Yanks honored him by winning both games of a double header against the Red Sox 7-5 and 13-3. Huggins fell ill on September 20, 1929 and checked into Saint Vincent’s Catholic Medical Center. Despite doctors best...

Heathcott headed to disabled list

After being scratched from last night’s game with a tight right quad, outfielder Slade Heathcott has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. Heathcott was called up on May 20 after Jacoby Ellsbury went down with a right knee sprain. Heathcott, 24, was off to a promising start in his young career going 6-for-17 (.353) with a homer, double and three RBI over 6 games. Manager Joe...

Scout: A-Rod 'looks like he doesn't give a (expletive)'

All Alex Rodriguez had to do in order to be successful again was to stop caring. That might sound like a bad thing, but one advanced scout thinks the New York Yankees slugger has been able to revitalize his offensive game in large part because he stopped caring about all of the other things that come with being A-Rod. “He has the easiest swing I’ve ever seen from him,” an advance...

Just Off A Sweep of AL-Best Royals, Yankees Can't Master AL-Worst A's

I just started reading Greg Prato's book,  Just out of Reach--The 1980s New York Yankees,  about the decade when not much of anything around the Yankees made much sense. Seems as if not much makes sense around the 2015 Yankees either. In case you missed it, the Yankees returned from a 2-7 road trip, dumped three straight at home to a mediocre Texas team, only to rise from those...

Yankees’ Masahiro Tanaka could return next week

New York Yankees pitcher Masahiro Tanaka could rejoin the team’s rotation and pitch next week in Seattle, manager Joe Girardi announced Thursday. Tanaka has been on the disabled list since April 27 with a strained forearm and tendinitis in his right wrist. On Wednesday, Tanaka made a Triple-A rehab start, and on Thursday he flew to Oakland to meet the Yankees, who are opening...

Over Memorial Day, El Duque and I blathered about about the possibility that this was Derek Jeter's first weekend at his rumored mansion in Skaneateles, Central New York. Within a minute we were arguing, of course--about which of us would befriend Derek the fastest, which friendship would be deepest, which of us would get Jeter thinking about this amazing buddy he just met. I scored...

Alex Rodriguez is Letting His Performance Do The Talking

Cheater. Steroid user. Bad example for Major League Baseball. These are all names that New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has been called since he was suspended by the MLB for all of last season in January of 2014. Anybody who follows or is a fan of the great game of baseball has an opinion on the controversial slugger. Rodriguez returned to the Yankees in March for Spring...

Is John Sterling's home run call for Slade Heathcott his worst ever?

John Sterling coming up with his home run calls?One of the things about writing this blog is that I don't really know what will strike a chord (or a nerve!) with people, and what will be greeted with nothing but crickets. With a few exceptions, that is!For some reason, any thing I write on Michael Kay or John Sterling will generally get a huge number of page views. One of our top...

Yankees' Girardi Plays It Safe with Warren But Takes Risk With Health of Bullpen

Questioning Joe Girardi is not exactly high on my list of things to do as I tend to give the Yankees manager the benefit of the doubt. After all, 750 wins doesn’t happen without some skill, even if it’s the skill of knowing when you don’t have to meddle.Still, after he pulled Adam Warren in Tuesday night’s game after 6.1 IP and only 88 pitches, I’ll admit I raised an eyebrow...

Heathcott and Lindgren: At last! Reasons to watch

Memorable day, Memorial Day. The Evils scored a zillion runs and played Paddington Bear with their stat lines, whacking the jerks who embarrassed us last week. No complaints here. Chase Headley entered the game batting .242 and finished at .255. You'd think he was having a good year. One thing I'd almost forgotten about laughers: You don't feel compelled to watch every pitch...

A Memorial Day tradition: Let's celebrate the Yankees' new Bore Four

Hate to say this, but the Yankees right now are not only baseball's most boring team, but they might be the most boring entity in corporate America, after IBM and the company that imports those back-scratchers from China.Typically, they score two runs early, and then... nothing... nada... zilch. Turn the channel, and reach for the bottle of hair tonic. Therefore, on this Memorial...

Core Four Honors Bernie, Watches Yankees Fall Back to .500

Not even the presence of the Core Four + Bernie Williams could propel the Yankees to a win last night against the Texas Rangers.Derek Jeter, in his first appearance at Yankee Stadium since his walk off single last September, was joined by the rest of the recent Yankees dynasty in celebrating an all too often overlooked Williams, who had his #51 retired by the Yankees and a plaque...

New York Yankees: Defensive Woes Impeding Team Success

At 22-21 on the year, the New York Yankees are in second place in the AL East and are only one and a half games behind Tampa Bay, the division leaders. New York’s front office had a clear plan this offseason: find free agents who could produce at a reasonable price and grind out wins with pitching and defense. The refocusing of their strategy of overpaying for offensive stars...

What was Brian (Fredo) Cashman's worst Yankee move this year? It's not what you think

"I'm smart and I want respect!" -- Brian (Fredo) Cashman Grrrrr. I am irate at the state of the Yankees these days. A little bit more than a quarter of the 2015 Yankees' season is over, and the team is not in a good way. Yes, the Yanks are only 1.5 games out of first place in the American League East, But they have lost five in a row, and nine of their last 10 games, They are only...

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...

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...

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

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...

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...

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...
