No DL for Jorge Posada, No Call-Ups for New York »

Yankees catcher Jorge Posada, who was hit in the knee with a pitch in the second inning yesterday, is not expected to go on the disabled list and would actually be the emergency backup if needed today, as the Yankees are not calling anyone up from the minors for insurance, according to Chad Jennings of the Journal News. “No question [...]

Francisco Cervelli: The ‘Cisco Kid is Filling in »

If you haven’t heard the news, Jorge Posada was hit in the knee with a pitch yesterday, and is unlikely to play today. Since it was his knee and he is a catcher it is possible that he might not even play for the next couple of days. That’s not as big of a deal as it used to be thanks to Francisco Cervelli .

CC Sabathia’s Win Continues Trend of Strong »

When you think of recent Yankees teams, generally the first thing that comes to mind is the high-scoring offense.

But when you get right down to what the major strength of the current [...]

What Can The Yankees Expect From AJ Burnett Every Five »

When at his best, AJ Burnett is one of the best pitchers in baseball. When Burnett is at his best, he is dominant. When he is at his best is the key. Every other time, he seems downright terrible.

John Smoltz Thinks Yankees Messed with Joba »

Want a fresh opinion on Joba Chamberlain? I know, we’ve talked this one to death, but how about a quote from a guy, former Braves pitcher John Smoltz, who probably knows Joba’s situation better than anybody because he himself has gone from being a starter to a reliever, and back again. Well, Brian Costello of the NY Post asked Smoltz [...]

New York Yankees All African-American Team »

This is my most recent endeavor. I am compiling All-Franchise Teams based on African Americans. The idea came to me as a result of the recent hiring of Joe Morgan by the Cincinnati Reds. Morgan brought to light the decline in African-American players in MLB. I have decided to start with the Yankees. It is part of my master plan to complete the [...]
