CC Sabathia’s Rebirth Is Most Pleasant Surprise for Yankees

What Alex Rodriguez was for the 2015 New York Yankees, CC Sabathia has been for the 2016 New York Yankees. That is to say: seemingly against all odds, a hugely productive player.  Because the 35-year-old left-hander entered the year fresh out of rehab and with three straight bad seasons and a balky right knee to overcome, there was really no telling what the Yankees were going to get out of him. But 10 starts in, there's Sabathia with a 2.28 ERA. He led the Yankees to their fifth straight win with his latest ...

Streaking Yankees Could Find It Tough to Sell Come Trade Season

NEW YORK — The stories saying the New York Yankees would sell at the trade deadline were already starting to appear. It made perfect sense, because the Yankees are old and flawed and sure don't look like a team set up to win a championship. Trade Aroldis Chapman, trade Carlos Beltran, maybe even trade Andrew Miller and the Yankees could set themselves up for a better future. It still makes perfect sense, except for one small detail: Check the schedule. Look hard at the next two-plus weeks, because the Yankees have a ton of ...

Is 2009 or 2014 Spending Spree More to Blame for Yankees’ Payroll Mess?

Zero. That's how many dollars the New York Yankees spent on major league free agents this winter.  Considering they've got MLB's second-highest payroll and a well-earned reputation for cutting cartoonish checks, that's sort of a big deal. What gives? For one, New York is still recovering from a pair of recent spending sprees that added crippling payroll obligations and have yielded mixed results on the field. The first came in 2009 and the second in 2014. The 2016 Yankees sit at 22-23 entering play Thursday, 6.5 games out in the American League East. They're not ...
