Jose Quintana Trade Would Be Right Idea at Wrong Time »

Nobody can fault the New York Yankees if they’re getting cold feet with their plan to take the long way back to success, but the best advice for them right now is to stay the course. That would involve not making a trade for Chicago White Sox left-hander Jose Quintana. As Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported Monday, that’s something [...]

Rich Hill Signing Would Be Great Yankees Fit for Both »

The New York Yankees need a starting pitcher. In past winters, that would have led to their going after only the best options, and damn the cost! But since they need to be smart this winter, let's help point them toward Rich Hill. In truth, it can be hard to tell which direction the Yankees are leaning in. The offseason rumor mill has featured [...]

Gary Sanchez Gives 1st Glimpse of Yankees’ »

There's not a lot of joy to be derived from the New York Yankees' present. Their 58-56 record is far from an Atlanta Braves-level disaster, but it marks the fourth year in a row they've been mired in mediocrity. And for the first time in a long time, they've accepted they need to make things worse to get better. When New York moved Aroldis [...]

Alex Rodriguez-Joe Girardi Drama Making Yankees »

Just when the New York Yankees allowed us to think we might be done forever with controversies centered around Alex Rodriguez, manager Joe Girardi pulled us back in. In case you've recently crawled out of a cave with no television and/or spotty Wi-Fi, we're in the final days of A-Rod's career. After 12 years of Alex's occasionally great, [...]

Yankees Facing Most Important Trade Deadline of the »

Including this one, the New York Yankees have been winners in each of the last 24 seasons. That's meant 24 years of buying or staying the course at the trade deadline, as one does when one is a winner. So go figure that doing the opposite before the August 1 deadline is exactly what the Yankees need now. This is a franchise in need of a turning [...]

How Much Could Yankees Actually Sell on Summer Trade »

For the New York Yankees, August 1 is looking less like the trade deadline and more like a sell-by date. By now, there's little question that selling on the summer market is what they should do. Rather, a better question is how much they'll be able to sell. That may be the question the Yankees are asking themselves. They're not approaching [...]

CC Sabathia’s Rebirth Is Most Pleasant Surprise »

What Alex Rodriguez was for the 2015 New York Yankees, CC Sabathia has been for the 2016 New York Yankees. That is to say: seemingly against all odds, a hugely productive player.  Because the 35-year-old left-hander entered the year fresh out of rehab and with three straight bad seasons and a balky right knee to overcome, there was really no [...]

What If the Yankees Became 2016 Trade-Deadline »

It's looking like not even the New York Yankees can outrun losing forever, and that raises a question. What would it look like if they decided to make the best of a bad situation? It's already easy to imagine the Yankees will have to cut their losses by becoming sellers on the summer trade market. They're following a return to the postseason in [...]

Locked-In Starlin Castro, Healthy Yankees Lineup »

It appears that all the New York Yankees offense needed to get going this season was a one-game warm-up. Also, somebody other than Dallas Keuchel on the mound for the opposition. And now that these two demands have been met, we're seeing just what these Bronx Bombers are capable of. After Keuchel, the reigning American League Cy Young [...]

Yankees Linchpin Mark Teixeira Has Path to Big »

For the last seven years, Mark Teixeira has been paid large sums of money to play ball for the New York Yankees. It's good work if you can get it, and the stars are aligned in such a way that 2016 might not be the end of the road. Teixeira is coming off a renaissance season in 2015, as he finished with a .906 OPS and 31 home runs in only 111 [...]
