Why the New York Yankees Should Be Thankful for Brett »

If the New York Yankees do indeed clinch home-field advantage in the American League for the playoffs and avoid a trip to Anaheim, they should be thanking Brett Gardner. For the third time in a week, Gardner has provided the kind of spark for the Yankees that only he can, and this time it might have led to the Yankees' biggest win of the [...]

Yankees-Angels: Alex Rodriguez Comes up Big in »

The Yankees have been struggling of late. They just lost two of three to the Seattle Mariners and lost their first game to the Los Angeles Angels 5-2 on Monday night. The Yankees needed to win just one game to clinch a playoff spot, or they could get some help if the Texas Rangers lost to the Oakland A's, then the Yankees could clinch a spot that [...]

New York Yankees Top 30 Post 2009 Season Prospects »

Since the minor league seasons are over, I figured it was an appropriate time to rank the top Yankees prospects. I plan on giving you an in-depth profile on each and every one of these guys during the offseason. For now, though, you'll have to be okay with just the list. 1. Jesus Montero, C (pictured) Absolute monster, was on track to be the [...]

Zack Greinke Afraid of Pitching in New York? »

This blog might as well have its own section on Zack Greinke. The latest news surrounding the leading Cy Young candidate (to my dismay) is his statement about his fear of pitching in New York. Greinke signed a four-year extension worth $38 million with the Royals prior to this season. Had he waited until free agency, or even just until the end [...]

Old Reliable Regains my Confidence in Yanks »

The Yankees were beat last night by the bloody Angels, again. But Andy Pettitte proved he has moved past his left shoulder fatigue that caused him to miss his previous start. Joba Chamberlain’s awful last nine starts coupled with Chad Gaudin taking Sergio Mitre’s spot in the rotation made me even more worried about the [...]

New York Yankees Top 30 Prospects: Five Who Just »

I will be releasing my top 30 prospects list this week, and here are five guys who just missed my cut. Daniel Brewer, DH/LF: Since being the Yankees' eighth round pick in 2008, Brewer has raked at the plate. With around 250 plate appearances in Staten Island, Charleston, and Tampa, he produced wOBAs of .378, .415, and .358 respectively. He was a [...]

New York Yankees: Bad for the Bronx, Bad for Baseball »

In the not so distant past the New York Yankees embodied everything good about baseball and America.  Slowly that faded.  Yankee lore officially died on August 19, 2006—ground breaking day of New Yankee Stadium. This is a story about corporate greed, political cronyism, and arrogant negligence to the neighborhood where the ghosts [...]

Jonathan Albaladejo: Should He Be On the Team For the »

Right-handed reliever Jonathan Albaladejo gave up a run last night. It was the first earned run he’s allowed since being called up in the beginning of the month. Over that span, he’s thrown 6.2 innings over six appearances with a 1-0 record, a 1.35 ERA, and a .588 OPS-against. Last night’s run ended a decent stretch, but it got [...]

Pettitte’s Shoulder Feels Good in Return »

Last season, Andy Pettitte struggled with shoulder pain and put up a rather poor 5-9 record with a 5.16 ERA after July thanks to shoulder pain. It made the Yankees question whether they should even bring him back this season, as they put off signing him until he nearly took a $11 million pay cut. They ended up bringing him back and it paid off, [...]

Joba Chamberlain May Have Pitched His Way Out of the »

Despite what you think of Joba Chamberlain, the way the Yankees have handled him, and his future, it would be hard to argue that he has pitched well of late. With a 1-4 record and an 8.25 ERA over his past nine starts, his spot on the Yankees playoff roster may be in jeopardy. “He needs to declare himself,’’ Yankees general [...]
