Brian Cashman on the Hot Seat If Yankees Miss Playoffs

The New York Yankees are not accustomed to missing the playoffs, let alone missing them in consecutive seasons. The last time that happened was in 1993. The Yankees are in danger of missing the postseason for the second straight year, and it is entirely likely heads will roll again. The first candidate on the chopping block: Brian Cashman, the team’s general manager since 1998. Cashman has four World Series trophies on his resume, and his contract has not been extended beyond this season. Not helping that speculation: Principal owner Hal Steinbrenner had the opportunity ...

Top 5 Memories for Derek Jeter in Detroit

On Thursday afternoon, Derek Jeter will bid farewell to Detroit as he plays his final regular-season game at Comerica Park. Detroit is the fifth-last stop in Jeter’s swan-song tour, which brings to an end a glittering 20-year MLB career. Undoubtedly, Jeter’s name will be etched in baseball folklore as one of the game’s all-time greats. You name it, he has achieved it: five World Series titles, 14 All-Star appearances, five Gold Gloves, five Silver Sluggers and the list goes on. The ensuing slides include Jeter’s personal achievements, as well as significant happenings ...

Yankees: An Early Free Agency and Offseason Primer

The New York Yankees are currently fighting for their playoff lives, but with a tough road ahead of them some have already begun to focus on what the team will look like in 2015. Rather than looking at the remainder of the 2014 schedule, many are writing up free-agent wish lists and checking the expiration dates on current contracts. There will be changes, that is for sure. Some players will return from injury, while others will have contractual issues that need to be resolved. Some players just may not be welcomed ...

New York Yankees’ 5 Best Prospects Who Won’t Be Called Up This September

Rosters expand to 40 in less than a week. Every team takes advantage of this rule, as it's perfect for teams in the stretch run to gather reinforcements. The New York Yankees are in this category. There are other categories as well. Middling teams can put youngsters in relatively high-intensity situations to see how they fare. Bottom-dwellers can give their rookies playing time in order to prepare them for the future. Not all 15 extra roster spots are used, though. Some teams, like the Yankees, for instance, might not call up more ...

Surging Yankees Keep Fighting Their Way Back into AL Postseason Picture

New York Yankees fans aren't easily impressed. This is the franchise that has won 27 World Series championships, more than twice as many as any other club. The franchise that spends more than anyone east of Chavez Ravine. The franchise of Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio and Babe Ruth. The pinstripe faithful expect greatness. So a distant second place in the American League East and a 2.5-game deficit in the wild-card race won't send champagne corks popping across the Big Apple. For much of 2014, doom and gloom have reigned. Here's how Daniel Barbarisi ...

Masahiro Tanaka’s Elbow Presents Unique Risk Regardless of 2014 or 2015 Return

"Shut him down!" With each pitch that Masahiro Tanaka throws, the cries from fans echo fainter. When it would have been simpler to let their ace wait and watch as Derek Jeter's last season faded away rather than burned out, the New York Yankees didn't go the easy way. They went the smart way. Instead of shutting him down, the Yankees sent Tanaka all the way across the country to have his elbow examined. It was a bit of a fluke that Dr. Chris Ahmad, the Yankees team physician and one of the ...

Yankees’ Playoff Chances Dying While Future Problems Persist

When an early morning team meeting is needed just before facing a team 20 games under .500 in your own house, it might be time to start choosing pallbearers. The New York Yankees won Thursday, a fine shutout against the Houston Astros, but let’s be real here: When this is the win a team hopes turns around a lackluster season, it’s just going to keep going in the same direction. The Yankees, in Derek Jeter’s final season, are a wrap. Losers of seven of their last 10 games, the Yankees are trying to ...

3 New York Yankees Players Trying to Save Their Jobs for 2015

Not everyone's job is safe in the Bronx. It has been a disappointing season for the New York Yankees, and that has some already looking ahead to next year. Changes are bound to occur in 2015, and rightfully so. The 2014 team has an abundance of issues, which means some modifications are in order. Some players, like a few of the starting pitchers who have filled in for an injury-plagued rotation, are making the case to keep their jobs come next year. Others, like several underachieving hitters, are doing everything they can ...

5 Prospects New York Yankees Will Promote in September

A smart string of September call-ups can often be the difference between a playoff berth and a phone call to the local golf course. When MLB rosters expand to 40 on September 1, expect some of the game's top youngsters to get the call to the majors. The New York Yankees will certainly make some additions, but who will be brought up to help the team's run at the American League Wild Card? There are five obvious candidates. While the team could certainly bring up more (the max it can call up ...

New York Yankees: 5 Players Who Will Not Be Back in 2015

The New York Yankees had a big makeover this past offseason, bringing in a lot of new faces. As the end of the 2014 season nears, Yankees fans should prepare for another offseason of turnover. The following is a list of the top players most likely not to return to the Yankees next season. One obvious omission from the list is Derek Jeter as we have been witnessing his farewell tour this season and I'm pretty sure it's clear that his decision to retire is final. Though all of these players could technically return, based ...
