New York Yankees: Don’t Associate Them with »

As a Miami Dolphin last year, New York Jets linebacker Jason Taylor mentioned Jets fans taking the "cl" out of class when it comes to talking about them. Now, he has to find a way to win them back. Maybe he can go say that about the Yankees, but this is not a good idea for a guy that is trying to make a new impression in this region. So this [...]

Johnny Damon Gets His World Series Ring »

The Yankees were presented with their World Series rings on Opening Day with former Bombers Jerry Hairston Jr. and Hideki Matsui on hand to get their rings. Melky Cabrera and Eric Hinske, now with the Braves, got theirs from Hairston; Chad Gaudin and Edwar Ramirez, now with the A’s, got theirs when the Yankees went to Oakland; and Xavier [...]

Yankees Struggles Start at the Top. Blame Cameron »

The New York Yankees had started the season red hot but have cooled down as of late. Losers of four of their last five, the Yankees now sit 2.5 games back of AL East leading Tampa Bay. I decided to look back at the past five games and try to find a common theme. Well, I found one at it was right at the top. The top of the batting order that [...]

Yankees Notes: Park, Johnson, Betances, and an IFA »

The Yankees lost a tough one yesterday as their bullpen blew a close lead given to them by Phil Hughes who held the Orioles to just one run despite not having his best stuff. It’s a tough way to watch a team lose, but that’s baseball. Here are some news items: Nick Johnson didn’t start yesterday even though he was expected to, [...]

Is The Bullpen the Weak Link Of The New York Yankees? »

Everyone take a deep breath. Please remain calm. Promise me you won't give away your stereo, Whitesnake record and other possessions like the depressed guy from that one after-school special. The Yankees are in a slump. They've lost four of their last five games, and now sit 2.5 games behind the Rays in the American League East. Again, do not part [...]

New York Yankees Set to Host the New Era Pinstripe »

Last week, the NCAA’s Football Issues Committee granted a four-year license to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl for 2010-2013.  This decision by the committee marks the first time that it has licensed a bowl on a four-year cycle instead of taking the traditional year-by-year route. What better place to host these bowl games than in the [...]

Marcus Thames Should Never See Left Field Again »

Looking at the image with this article, you see that Marcus Thames has great hitting mechanics. Hips opening for power, a stiff front leg, elbow tucked near the hip to keep the swing short and the bat rotating through the zone. A good hitter who, on occasion, can really mash left handed pitching. But Thames is a designated hitter. Pure and simple. [...]

Game 19: Seriously? Yanks’ Lose to MLB-Worst »

Thought this first series against the Baltimore Orioles would be a breeze? Perhaps not. The Yankees fell short to the O’s 5-4, behind staff ace Kevin Millwood and to the dismay of a shaky Yankee bullpen. The first inning and a half went quickly. Luke Scott led off the O’s second with a single to left, followed by a Ty Wiggington [...]

Following Some Former Yankees with Their New Teams »

A number of major pieces from the New York Yankees' World Series championship team are gone to other franchises. I thought it would be interesting to see how they are doing with about 20 games gone in the new season. Johnny Damon left as a free agent. He was offered a two-year deal with the Yanks at a reported $14 million and he turned it down [...]

The New York Yankees’ Future Infield »

The Yankees consist of great talent, including Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, and Mark Teixeira. And don't forget about the man behind the plate: Jorge Posada. But what about the future of this infield? What will happen when Jeter is too old to play everyday? And what about when A-Rod, Teixeira, and Posada are no longer [...]
