Alex Rodriguez or Derek Jeter. Who Is the Better »

First off, let me begin by stating the fact that I am not a Yankee fan. With all due respect, I despise them. Any fan of the Toronto Blue Jays, as I am, MUST loathe the men in pinstripes.  I am, however, a huge fan of baseball history and any baseball fan knows Yankee history is synonymous with baseball history.   Despite my allegiance [...]

Alex Rodriguez: Why A-Rod Should Be a Future Hall of »

As Alex Rodriguez closes in on becoming just the seventh player all-time to hit 600 home runs (and the youngest ever to do so), there is not as much attention to this potentially huge milestone as there would usually be. And the reason? A-Rod’s association with performance enhancing drugs.  With this milestone looming, it seams like an [...]

Early Offensive Outburst Carries Yankees Past Indians »

Wednesday night, the New York Yankees continued their series in Cleveland against the Indians. Just one day after being shut down by Indians pitcher Josh Tomlin in his major league debut. In the top of the first, Alex Rodriguez drove a single to center to score Mark Teixeira, getting the scoring started. Rodriguez is still chasing after the 600th [...]

Adam Dunn and the New York Yankees Would Be a Perfect »

It's become a rite of summer.  If a major league team has an available player at the trade deadline, he'll be connected to the Yankees somehow, whether he makes sense for New York or not. So it comes as no surprise that the Yankees have been connected to just about every available player at this year's trade deadline.  They've made [...]

Alex Rodriguez Is Still a Cheater: Why All the 600th »

It seems like every time you put on ESPN or browse any sports site, you at least hear or see something about Alex Rodriguez and his pursuit of his 600th home run.  I understand hitting 600 home runs is a huge milestone, but it would have a lot more credibility if the man who was pursuing it wasn't already a confessed steroid user, and [...]

MLB Trade Rumors: Roy Oswalt To Be Next Yankee »

With the MLB trading deadline three days away, teams are evaluating their rosters and trying to figure out what pieces they need for the second half of the season. For the New York Yankees, their attention so far has been on getting more pitching. Earlier this month, they were on the verge of landing Cliff Lee from the Seattle Mariners, but [...]

George Steinbrenner Goofed: The Al Leiter Trade »

It was one of the worst trades the New York Yankees under George Steinbrenner ever made. On April 30, 1989, the Yankees sent 23-year-old left-hander Al Leiter to the Toronto Blue Jays for 30-year-old slugging outfielder Jesse Barfield. A major reason given was that the Yankees were upset with the chronic blister problems Leiter suffered on [...]

Yankees Trade Rumors: Orioles Willing to Deal Tejada »

According to George King of the NY Post , the Yankees have had interest in Orioles infielder Ty Wigginton , but so far the O’s are unwilling to deal him within the division. One player they may be willing to part with is Miguel Tejada , but so far the Yankees reaction has been “lukewarm at best.” There is a good reason why the [...]

Yankees Trade Rumors: Asking Price for Downs is Joba »

I don’t know what they’re smoking up in Canada, but according to George King of the NY Post , the Toronto Blue Jays have asked the Yankees for Joba Chamberlain or, according to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated, their top prospect, Jesus Montero, in exchange for reliever Scott Downs . That’s right: The asking price for the Jays' [...]

Yankees Trade Rumors: Coghlan’s Injury Makes »

According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports , the Chris Coghlan injury effects the Yankees in more ways than just answering a few questions about pies (he was injured in a walk-off pie throwing celebration), it takes away one of their trade options at the deadline – OF Cody Ross . Now this doesn’t necessarily kill a deal between the [...]
