Pettite’s Return, and What It Means »

According to sources of ESPN's Buster Olney, Andy Pettitte will pitch in 2010, and his return is just a matter of working out a deal with the Yankees . His decision to return is major news for the Yankees, who are looking to make whatever moves possible that can get them to defend their World Championship.  Pettitte's return is huge, because he [...]

New York Yankees Trade Brian Bruney to Washington »

The baseball winter meetings are underway and there is nothing to better help to kick off the meetings than a blockbuster trade. Well, not exactly. There was one trade today so far, but a blockbuster it is not. Today, the New York Yankees traded relief pitcher Brian Bruney to the Washington Nationals for a Player To Be Named Later. This is [...]

Yankees Start Trimming the Fat: Brian Bruney Traded to »

The Yankees, who are reportedly on a quest to reduce payroll this offseason, have traded right-handed reliever Brian Bruney to the Washington Nationals for a player to be named later. Bruney, who made $1.25 million this year, was due for salary arbitration and could've made around $2 million after putting up what appeared to be a good season. The [...]

Yankees Best 25 Man Roster For 2010 »

Some things are rock solid for the New York Yankees going into the 2010 season. To begin with they have the best infield in all of baseball both offensively and defensively. Mark Texeira - First Base.  Robinson Cano - Second Base.  Alex Rodriguez - Third Base. Derek Jeter - Shortstop.  No need for any changes there. Jorge [...]

Nick Swisher Is the True Catalyst of the 2009 New York »

The 2009 New York Yankees will be remembered for the following: World Series Champions, Alex Rodriguez’s steroid controversy, and the $423 million in salary for their newest recruits, CC Sabathia, Mark Teixeira, and A.J. Burnett. The most underrated signing on this champion roster is that of Nick Swisher. Swisher brought back the swagger that [...]

SHOCKING NEWS: Andy Pettitte Will Be Back with the NY »

To report that Andy Pettitte will be back on the mound for the New York Yankees in 2010 is no more surprising than saying they will play their home games in the beautiful, new mini-park known as Yankee Stadium. Yet, ESPN reported it today. If you will still be 37 until just before the All-Star break, and you can make at least $6,000,000 playing a [...]

New York Yankees Should Focus on Adding John Lackey, »

With the Baseball Winter Meetings set to open on Monday in Indianapolis, expect the rumors to fly, and figure the Yankees to be garnering headlines. In fact, some stories have already come out, with predictions that the Yankees will reduce their payroll for the 2010 season. Of course, like last year, the public pronouncements about slashing [...]

John Lackey: A Better Fit for New York Than Roy »

The best moves are sometimes the ones you don't make. I my opinion, one of the good no-moves of Yankees GM Brian Cashman was not trading for Johan Santana (and I think highly of Johan Santana, one of the best there is). Likewise, I hope the Yankees only show interest in Halladay in order to drive the price up for BoSox. To land him they would [...]

Retiring Bernie Williams’ No. 51 Long Overdue »

When fans think about center field for the New York Yankees, they think Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, and Bernie Williams. All three of these Yankee legends were among the best players to roam center field at Yankee Stadium. But of those three, only two are in the Hall of Fame and have had their numbers retired by the Yankees. The only exception is [...]

A Catching Conundrum: The New York Yankees and Their »

To say the Yankees have had it good behind the plate for the majority of their history would be an understatement.    Dating all the way back to the 1930s, and the Hall of Famer Bill Dickey, the Bronx Bombers have had their share of good fortune from the men who don the tools of ignorance, and the tradition carries on today with the [...]
