Injuries Haven’t Stopped the New York Yankees »

Despite the Yankees starting the 2013 season with a large amount of the core players missing due to injuries, they find themselves with a healthy 19-13 record. In fact, they are just one game behind the Red Sox and Orioles in the AL East. Sure, they are sitting at 18th in the MLB for runs scored, but one surprising number has sprung [...]

New York Yankees’ Quiet Offseason Moves Paying »

As I suggested during the offseason, Brian Cashman's low-key moves are paying off.With the 2014 payroll target looming, the Yankees did not want to commit big money or multiple years to the free-agent crop of this past winter, so they made moves to fill their holes in less conventional ways. Granted, you can't predict the injuries to players [...]

Yankees Making Some Great Low-Key Moves »

Despite what most fans are saying, the Yankees have been making some nice moves during this offseason. After letting the likes of Nick Swisher, Raul Ibanez, Andruw Jones and Russell Martin walk, many fans and writers have been doubting whether the Yankees were interested in winning, or just meeting the payroll that owner Hal Steinbrenner has [...]

Joba Chamberlain Dislocates Ankle »

Joba Chamberlain dislocated his ankle last night, playing on a trampoline with his young son. Sure, that may not sound too bad, until I tell you it was an open dislocation. If you do not know what that is, then do a Google search. Warning, it is quite disgusting. Essentially, the bone dislocates, and tears through the skin. Not only is it a [...]

Spring Training: Phil Hughes Making His Case for »

So, aside from a two-run shot against him in the second inning, Phil Hughes looked pretty impressive today. He had the breaking ball working, the velocity was pretty good and he put in five quality innings of work today against Tampa Bay. As things stand today, you have to imagine Hughes has the fourth or fifth spot in the rotation. After [...]

Yankees Get First Glimpse of Their New Workhorse, »

Aside from finding a talented veteran in Hiroki Kuroda, they just found their No. 2 work horse. Aside from CC Sabathia, who finished in the top five in innings pitched last year, the Yankees didn't have another starter racking up 200 innings. A.J. Burnett was the next closest at 190. Enter Kuroda with 202 innings last year—and the [...]

Phil Hughes Shows Improvement in Spring Debut »

In his first outing this Spring, Phil Hughes looked closer to his 2010 form. After dropping some weight, Hughes was hitting 92-93 on the gun, according to scouts. Now these numbers aren't staggering, but for someone who was having trouble breaking 90 last year, this is a great sign. We already know Hughes has great off-speed stuff, so if [...]

Phil Hughes: Will He Be Traded for a Designated »

Brian Cashman has again suggested he will use the Yankees surplus of pitching to target a DH in the trade market. Looking at it from all sides, this is what New York has. CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Ivan Nova and Michael Pineda are NOT being traded. Don't even try to argue it. Then, the possibilities are A.J. Burnett, Freddy Garcia and Phil [...]
