The New York Yankees are still battling for postseason position as the 2014 season enters the stretch run, but baseball was the least of anyone’s concern for a ...
New York Yankees outfielder Chris Young hit his ninth home run of the season on Wednesday evening, becoming only the second player to hit a home run for both the Yankees and the New York Mets in the same season. Young matched the feat first accomplished almost four decades ago by Dave Kingman in 1977, per ESPN Stats & Info.
Young started the 2014 season with the Mets after signing a one-year deal with them in the offseason for a reported $7.25 million. He played in 88 games for the 'Amazins, ...
We are 10 days into the month of September, a time when major league teams are littered with minor league prospects; players decent enough to warrant a call-up when the 25-man rosters expand to 40.
Hopelessly fighting for the playoffs, the New York Yankees have some call-ups of their own as they sit 5.5 games out of the second wild card.
With their chances dwindling by the day and every game a must-win, the Yanks have relied very little on the players they brought up such as Chris Young, Antoan Richardson, John ...
The New York Yankees have, of late, shown more signs of taking themselves out of the pressure-cooker of the American League wild-card race than of sneaking toward its forefront. Going just 4-6 in their last 10 and losing their last two, the Bombers' final 20 games may not be enough to close the 5.5-game gap of the second slot.
A case of "one step forward, two steps back" has continued to materialize the very graspable notion that Derek Jeter's career could end before the month of October. The late-season wheel-spinning has ...
After dropping two of three over the weekend to the Kansas City Royals, the New York Yankees have decreased their chances of claiming a Wild Card spot down to 1.3 percent.The Yanks are currently 4.5 games back of the Seattle Mariners for the second wild card spot and have two other teams, the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians, still to leap before getting to the Mariners.Entering mid-September, time is running out on the Yankees and they sit in a position where they don't really control their own destiny.Scoreboard watching becomes ...
For almost two decades, Derek Jeter has been a fixture in the Bronx. He's the face of the most well-known sports franchise in the world; the face of baseball.
It seems like it was only a few weeks ago that Jeter took to Facebook to announce that the 2014 season would be his last. Now, there's only a few weeks left in his iconic career. Time flies when you're having fun, and Jeter has provided more joy for more people than he, or any of us, can ever possibly comprehend.
He's done it his ...
The New York Yankees need a face-lift.
It's time for things to change in the Bronx. While the team has continually avoided ultimate disaster for the past few seasons—"ultimate disaster" being a losing record—these rosters have come far too close to being a complete mess.
In reality, they've been a small spill. A tipped-over glass, if you will. There's no use crying over spilled milk, but there's plenty of reason to question why the liquid hit the floor.
Many of the Yankees' struggles in recent years have been a result of veterans on ...
With their playoff hopes dwindling by the day, the New York Yankees need to start praying paying attention to what will surely be a busy offseason for the team.
It has been a rough year in the Bronx to say the least. Pitcher after pitcher has fallen victim to injury. Hitters with proven track records are putting up the worst numbers of their careers. To keep it simple, things just have not panned out for the Yankees in 2014.
That means change is coming. You can count on it.
There will surely be ...
Derek Jeter is not dead.
The Captain is very much alive, but the New York Yankees still plan to honor the veteran shortstop by wearing commemorative No. 2 patches for the remainder of the 2014 season.
ESPN's Darren Rovell brings us news of the Yankees' new patches, which will be visible on players' hats and uniforms starting September 7.
The patches will bear the No. 2 logo signifying Jeter's final season in the league and—of course—will be available for purchase.
Rovell's report paints a picture of a huge, coordinated merchandise push involving the Yankees ...
Five games back of the second wild card with 26 games remaining, the New York Yankees (70-66) need all the help they can get—especially after going 3-4 on the most recent road trip. On Labor Day, MLB roster sizes expanded to 40, granting playoff-hunting teams the ability to add reinforcements down the stretch and others the opportunity to run out some of their young talent.
With a day off Monday, the Yankees announced their moves late Tuesday afternoon—eight September call-ups in total—just prior to their series opener with Boston (they lost, 9-4). It was ...
