The Story of Joba Chamberlain Gets More And More »

Believe it or not, Yankee fans can be frustrated too. Hard to believe, considering they have won 27 championships and are in the playoff race year in and year out. But occasionally, Yankee fans find something to complain about, something to criticize. And once you get Yankee fans going, there is no stopping them. This year, the source of the [...]

New York Yankees: More High-A Tampa Rotation Pitching »

This is the second installment of my starting pitching capsules from my trip down to the Florida State League to watch the High A Tampa Yankees play. I saw quite a few games which included four of the five starting pitchers. The one starter I did not see pitch was Dellin Betances. The first capsule can be seen here, and included right-handed [...]

Yankees Trade Rumors: Kicking Tires on Willie »

According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, the Yankees have kicked the tires on the Royals super-utility player Willie Bloomquist, whom Crasnick refers to as the “most likely Royal to be dealt.” Bloomquist, 32, literally plays every position on the field except pitcher and catcher. Unfortunately for him, he doesn’t hit. His career [...]

Yankees Trade Rumors: Yanks Out On Dunn »

According to Joel Sherman of the NY Post, the Yankees tried, but have given up on trying to trade for Nationals slugger Adam Dunn. The Yankees have offered their top prospects in deals for pitchers Cliff Lee and Dan Haren, but have not done so in any deals for Dunn. The supposed reason for this is because the Yankees viewed Lee and Haren as [...]

A-Rod Is Pressing for 600 »

There is no denying the fact that Alex Rodriguez is having a bit of an off-year. Entering July, his batting average and slugging percentage have dropped and he hasn’t been quite as patient at the plate. In July, he started turning things around, at least power-wise, by cracking five homers in the first 17 games of the month. His average and [...]

When Will Alex Rodriguez Hit Career Home Run Number »

By now, the biggest question surrounding Alex Rodriguez’s 600th home run may not be where/what section in the stadium, but when. Two long weeks ago, here at SeatGeek, we released our initial report on where Alex Rodriguez’s 600th home run may land at Yankee Stadium. There was a substantial likelihood that A-Rod would [...]

New York Yankees: Joba Chamberlain Reaching Point of »

  Last July, I wrote a story titled "Joba Chamberlain for Roy Halladay: Would You Pull the Trigger? " I did this with a straight face. There were no drugs in my system at the time. It seems laughable now, but there was logic to it in the salad days of 2009. Chamberlain's breakout 2007 season was still somewhat fresh, and he had shown enough [...]

Yankees Notes: Burnett, Igawa, Quiet Deadline, and »

Alex Rodriguez once again failed to hit home run No. 600 (he did hit one off the right field wall), but the Yankees won 8-0 in an easy game against the Indians anyway. Here are some notes: AJ Burnett got the win, he is now 3-0 with a 2.00 ERA in July. Kei Igawa continues to disappoint, and everyone wants him out. And the Yankees would have [...]

New York Yankees Need One More Win in Cleveland Before »

New York Yankees CC Sabathia had a rare loss in his old stomping ground Tuesday night, falling 4-1 to the Cleveland Indians. The Yankees are in first place, with a margin of only two games before they get caught. This added a lot of pressure on an already erratic AJ Burnett. It was mandatory that Burnett put the team in a winning position. Burnett [...]

New York Yankees vs. Tampa Bay Rays This Weekend Is »

The two best teams in baseball will meet this weekend in the Dome in St Pete. The New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays will get it on for perhaps the upper hand going down the stretch. August is upon us. This is when baseball really gets interesting. The cream will rise to the top and the pretenders will start to fold. The winner of this series [...]
