New York Yankees To Curb Spending in 2010 »

Brian Cashman won't meet with the Steinbrenner family until next week to discuss what the team's 2010 payroll is going to be, but regardless of what they tell him, he won't make the same splash he did a year ago. "We spent a lot of money last year," said Cashman, who dumped a combined $429 million on Mark Teixeira, CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and [...]

Grading the New York Yankees: Pitchers »

Even more than Mark Teixeira, CC Sabathia was the biggest offseason acquisition for the New York Yankees last year. The Bronx Bombers have always had good hitting, but what they really lacked since last reaching the World Series in 2003, was a true ace to lead the staff through the postseason. Take a look at the Yanks' ERA in the playoffs from [...]

Joe Mauer, 2009 AL MVP and…Future New York »

Joe Mauer is an unbelievable athlete.  A man who could have had a career in football turned down a scholarship to play for Florida State and instead entered the MLB Draft, which has turned out to be a good choice.  When you think of a catcher, you don't usually think of eye popping offensive numbers, but that is what Mauer gives you, as well as [...]

Better Hitter: Derek Jeter or Pete Rose? »

Pete Rose has more hits than any other man who ever played professional baseball. He finished his long career with 4,256 hits, surpassing the immortal Ty Cobb. Derek Jeter has now played fourteen seasons with the New York Yankees and is generally recognized as one of the best players and best hitters of his era.  I have long been intrigued [...]

Jorge Posada Has NOT Won Five World Series Titles »

Three weeks ago, a great deal of the discussion surrounding the Yankees 27th World Championship was about "The Core Four." Much was made about how Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, and Jorge Posada had remained together since the minor leagues and that they had been instrumental in five world championships in the Bronx. Forget about [...]

Is the Yankees’ Jorge Posada Cooperstown-Bound »

A catcher has won the 2009 American League Most Valuable Player Award. It was not Yankees catcher, Jorge Posada, but Minnesota's Joe Mauer. Jorge Posada possibly was not even in consideration for the award. But the Yankees veteran has just won his fifth World Series title. Does Jorge Posada have the numbers to be enshrined in Baseball's Hall of [...]

Joe Mauer Wins AL MVP; Was There Any Doubt? »

My preseason AL MVP pick: Grady Sizemore AL MVP winner: Joe Mauer   Two nights before the 2008 All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium, I had the opportunity to hang out with Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, and Joe Nathan at an pre-All-Star Game party at a bar in New York City. It was by far and away one of the coolest nights of life. How often does [...]

Allie Reynolds’ Amazing 1952 World Series »

The 1952 World Series is usually remembered for Billy Martin's great catch of a Jackie Robinson pop fly with the bases loaded and two outs in the seventh inning of the seventh game. The catch saved the Series for the Yankees, but the 1952 World Series was memorable in many other ways. Joe Black Started and Finished Game 1 Rookie right hander [...]

Why the New York Yankees “Buying” Players »

How many times have you heard that the Yankees buy their players? How many times have you heard how the Yankees buy their championships? You have probably heard a combination of both questions over the past decade. How valid are these questions? In fact, it is possible to buy players. Players have been bought since baseball first began. In the [...]
