Yankees’ Yangervis Solarte Drives in First Career Run in Most Unusual Fashion

After spending eight seasons in the minor leagues, Yangervis Solarte was told that he would be on the Opening Day roster for the New York Yankees in 2014.  Solarte had a fantastic spring for the Yankees in Tampa, batting .429 in 42 at-bats for the Yankees.  On Thursday evening, Solarte was put in the starting lineup for the first time in his career at the major league level, and in his first at-bat of the night, he knocked a single off of Astros starting pitcher Brett Oberholtzer.  The ball was tossed into ...

Derek Jeter’s Farewell Tour Will Be More Memorable Than Mariano Rivera’s

Former New York Yankees Talk Hype, Pressure Surrounding Masahiro Tanaka

On Friday night in Toronto, Masahiro Tanaka will toe the rubber for his first regular-season outing as a member of the New York Yankees. If the foreign sensation proves worthy of New York's $175 million investment ($155 million contract, plus $20 million release fee), the Yankees could be capable of making some serious noise come October.

New York Yankees’ Big Flaws Loom Large in Lifeless Start to 2014

Maybe the New York Yankees are just trying to get all of the bad baseball out of their system now so they don't have to worry about it later. It's either that, or the version of the Yankees we've seen in the first two games of 2014 is closer to the real thing than anyone wants to admit. Take a wild guess which way I'm leaning.

The winter shopping could have represented a ...

New York Yankees Are Stacked at Leadoff, but Rest of Lineup Is the Issue

Some baseball teams do not have an ideal leadoff hitter. The New York Yankees have the luxurious problem of deciding who should hit first. The Yankees made substantial financial commitments to center fielders Jacoby Ellsbury (seven years, $153 million) and Brett Gardner (four years, $52 million) this past offseason. The front office’s sky-high payroll allows for a variety of lineup options that most other teams could only dream about. Website Batting Leadoff argued that the Yankees should have traded Gardner in the offseason. The outfield is now crowded with Ellsbury, Gardner, Carlos ...

Why Yankees Should Be Worried About CC Sabathia After First Start of 2014 Season

After watching him struggle through his first start of the 2014 regular season against the lowly Houston Astros on Tuesday night, CC Sabathia apologists will say it's only one game. Sabathia critics, meanwhile, will say it's more like 33—and counting. In picking up the loss in what turned out to be a 6-2 final, Sabathia went six innings, surrendering all six runs on eight hits and generally looking a lot like the same pitcher who endured 32 mostly bad starts in 2013, the worst season of his career. Although Sabathia did manage ...
