Should the New York Yankees Consider Xavier Nady for »

Hope everyone has a great Christmas and a wonderful holiday weekend. But now, it's time to get back to the baseball hot stove of the winter. We all know the Yankees are searching for a left fielder for 2010. We also know the Yankees are almost at their budget number for payroll, which is somewhere around $200 million, so they aren't looking to [...]

Acquisitions Signal Paradigm Shift for Cashman, New »

It wasn't too long ago that the New York Yankees front office was the laughingstock of baseball. With such close proximity to New York's 27th world championship, it's easy to forget that the franchise once traded borderline Hall-of-Famer Fred McGriff for Dale Murray and Tom Dodd, who logged one win and zero at-bats for the Yankees, [...]

The 1962 Giants Were Better, but the Yankees Had »

Jackie Howard was a Giants' fan who grew up in Flushing. He was 10 years old when the Giants won the pennant in 1951, but the Yankees beat them in the World Series. That's when Jackie Howard started his hate affair with the Yankees, which grew more intense during the 1962 World Series. I Couldn't Watch the Giants After my team moved, I had to [...]

New York Yankees Bolster Bullpen With Javier Vazquez »

What the New York Yankees have done with the recent Javier Vazquez signing is strengthen their bullpen to the point that it resembles the one they had during their run in the late 1990’s. Effectively the Yankees have five front line starters that can hang with any in the American League East. From CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte, [...]

Javier Vazquez Trade Looks Like a Good One, but There »

Everybody seems to love the New York Yankees trade with the Atlanta Braves for Javier Vazquez. The Yankees traded OF Melky Cabrera, LHP Michael Dunn and Low-Low A (although highly rated) pitcher Arodys Vizcaino to get the former Yankee right handed pitcher. I am always a little wary when too many people love things at the same time. When too many [...]

Austin Kearns Could Be a Bargain As the New York »

This morning, Joe over at River Avenue Blues pointed out a few things about the Yankees' left field situation. In short, he suggested that the Yankees will be signing someone to complement the outfield and not necessarily take Brett Gardner's starting spot. The Yankees should in no circumstances go into the season with Jamie Hoffmann as their [...]

Analyzing the 2009 New York Yankee Off-Season »

The New York Yankees faced a risky off-season but Brian Cashman and the Yankees did well in keeping the franchise from breaking down. The Yankees lost two starting position players from a year ago but made smart moves to enhance confidence for 2010. The signings of Andy Pettitte and Nick Johnson, plus trades bringing in Javier Vazquez and Curtis [...]

The New York Yankees and Arnold Johnson: A Yankees »

During the 1950s, the Yankees had a major league farm team named the Kansas City Athletics. Larry Levensen is a Giants' fan who resented the Yankees because he knew that it was almost impossible to beat both the Yankees and their Kansas City farm team. "I Will Probably Die Waiting for a World Championship ." I was only four years old when the [...]

Grading the New York Yankees Offseason »

The Yankees have sure made a splash this offseason, but not by buying every player on the market. Unlike the big spending spree last year, the Yankees did not sign the best pitcher on the market, Lackey, and are unlikely to sign Holliday or Bay. Brian Cashman has made himself known through trades with exception of Nick Johnson. They have acquired [...]

Comparing the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox »

When the Red Sox signed John Lackey, there was no question the Yankees’ biggest rivals had the better rotation. But after the Yanks picked up Javier Vazquez in a trade with the Braves, the rotations look even again from a distance. Since I don’t expect any more additions to either rotation, I thought I’d take a closer look at the [...]
