Losing Yoan Moncada Might Not Stop Yankees’ International Spending Spree

This is not how things are supposed to go for the New York Yankees. When it comes to desiring a commodity and having a willingness to spend for it, the Yankees are not supposed to swing and miss. And while the occasional whiff has happened under the Steinbrenner family reign, missing out on the prize they covet, for a myriad of reasons, is becoming more common. The latest example: Cuban prospect Yoan Moncada. The Yankees wanted him. Badly. They worked him out repeatedly. They were willing to pay a huge tax penalty to ...

Aaron Judge Will Finally Give Yankees Fans Big Prospect to Believe In

Right now, everyone's focused on what the New York Yankees farm system doesn't have: Cuban super-prospect Yoan Moncada.

But all is not lost. ESPN Insider Keith Law believes the Yankees farm system is "trending up again." Literally and figuratively, there's a big reason for that: Aaron Judge. Odds are you first ...

New York Yankees: A Healthy Tanaka Can Lead Yanks to Playoffs

And there is no clear-cut choice to start at second base.But the biggest concern might be ace pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.  The Yankees signed the Japanese star to a seven-year, $155 million contract last January, and even though he pitched wonderfully in his first 20 starts of big ...

Tanaka did not undergo Tommy John surgery to his right elbow this offseason, which would have cost him all of 2015. The Japanese native is signed through 2020 for a total of $155 million and hopes to be ...

Alex Rodriguez’s Bat Must Do the Talking to Ever Earn Yankees Fans’ Forgiveness

Everyone, Alex Rodriguez would like you to know that he's sorry. Not that it matters for most, of course. After all he's been through, the vast majority of baseball fans are likely permanently against the New York Yankees veteran slugger. Instead of winning back the everyfan, really his only hope of redemption is to at least win back Yankees fans. And that's going to take more effort than simply issuing a public mea culpa.
