New York Yankees’ Phil Hughes Continues To Lack »

All spring, the New York Yankees showed no concern over Phil Hughes' lack of velocity. Perhaps the shellacking he received on Friday at the hands of the Boston Red Sox will get their attention. Hughes was absolutely torched by the Red Sox, giving up seven hits, six runs and two walks in just two innings of work. He only induced one swing-and-miss [...]

New York Yankees Set Starting Rotation »

New York Yankees’ manager Joe Girardi has named his starting rotation to start the regular season. Here is what it will look like come Thursday…   1. C.C. Sabathia 2. Phil Hughes 3. A.J. Burnett 4. Ivan Nova 5. Freddy Garcia One through four is no surprise, but the fifth starter is. I am really surprised Garcia got the nod [...]

New York Yankees’ Francisco Cervelli Out 6-8 »

It’s been a rough spring training for light-hitting catchers around the majors. First it was Jonathan Lucroy going down with a broken pinky, then on Friday, Jason Castro blew out his knee, and now Francisco Cervelli fractures his left foot. Cervelli injured himself when he fouled a ball off his left foot on Wednesday.  The injury [...]

New York Yankees: Bartolo Colon Nothing Special in »

Most of the questions the New York Yankees have this spring training surround their starting rotation. Will A.J. Burnett show signs of bouncing back, and who will win the fourth and fifth spots in the rotation? One of the pitchers trying to win one of the spots in the Yankees’ rotation is Bartolo Colon. Colon, who didn’t pitch in a [...]

Andy Pettitte: New York Yankees Pitcher Calling It »

When talking about Andy Pettitte, it’s only fitting to thank God. And thank God that baseball's version of “Favregate” came to a quick conclusion. As most of us know by now, New York Yankees LHP Andy Pettitte officially called it quits on Friday. Pettitte retired with a career record of 240-138 with a 3.88 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in [...]

New York Yankees Sign Freddy Garcia »

The New York Yankees have signed 35-year-old Freddy Garcia to a minor league contract, according to multiple reports. Garcia was 12-6 with a 4.64 ERA, a 1.38 WHIP, and averaged 5.1 Ks/9 in 157 innings for the Chicago White Sox in 2010. The Yankees have signed Mark Prior, Bartolo Colon, Andruw Jones and now Garcia this offseason. I will take [...]

Fantasy Baseball: Five Fantasy Losers From This »

With January winding down and February approaching, it’s time to get into fantasy baseball mode. As we go through February and head towards March and everyone’s fantasy draft, we will start pumping out more fantasy articles in preparation. Today, we will take a look at five guys who had their fantasy value drop and in some cases, [...]

Phil Coke: This Year’s Version Of C.J. Wilson »

Just as often as I admit I was right about a prediction or something I wrote about, I admit when I was wrong about something. And I have to admit, I was dead wrong about C.J. Wilson last season. I didn’t see Wilson making a successful transition from reliever to starter, but man, was he good in 2010. Wilson had a 3.35 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and [...]

New York Yankees Bring in Andruw Jones »

Before we get to the New York Yankees and Andruw Jones, can we first talk about the press conference they held yesterday to announce the Rafael Soriano signing? Was that not the most awkward press conference to introduce a new player ever? I have never seen a press conference where the GM of all people says he had no interest in signing the [...]

New York Yankees Strengthen Their Bullpen, Sign Rafael »

Here is what I wrote in my “Where Do The Yankees Go From Here?” post back in early December: “What I can see the Yankees doing if they don’t bring back Pettitte or even if they do, is build a super bullpen. The best way to compensate for a weak (by Yankee standards) rotation, is to have a strong bullpen. What would [...]
