So the Alex Rodriguez saga continues, but no one can seem to find him?
Alex Rodriguez – Yankee Stadium.
Well according Bill Maddon of the New York Daily News :
“The latest word on Alex Rodriguez, wherever he is, is that he’s scared. Not scared because of all these revelations about his involvement with an associate named Tony Bosch, an alleged dispenser of HGH and testosterone...
The Yankees captain thinks Alex Rodriguez should speak out publicly on the latest round of PED allegations before he makes his feelings known on the subject.
After concerns that Michael Pineda could miss the entire 2013 season for the Yankees, fear started setting in. At least among Yankees fans. New York had traded away Jesus Montero to get Pineda. He couldn't flop. Now, it seems Pineda will not miss the 2013 season after all. He threw from a half-mound yesterday for the first time.

When Brian Cashman began his internship with the Yankees in 1987, he saw then GM Woody Woodward buckle under The Boss. Nicknamed The Pharmacist because of his trove of stress-relieving medication, Woodward resigned after one year. Being the General Manager for the Yankees under George Steinbrenner was just as good as an internship it seemed like.
Cashman was almost 20 then, and was...
Like many players who make the move over to that team in the Bronx, Kevin Youkilis has gone through a drastic transformation.
Youkilis unveiled his new batting stance in a video interview with the YES Network. The new Yankees third baseman described it as “a wider, more athletic ‘linebacker’-type foot position to achieve better balance.”
Youkilis also decided to discontinue...
Alex Rodriguez appears to be hiding. Between rehabbing an injury that could sideline him for much of the 2013 season and facing accusations surrounding performance-enhancing drug use, A-Rod is likely not anxious to speak to the media any time soon. That is why the New York Yankees are doing their best to protect him.
“I’m not going to say to try and keep away the extra, whatever...
Alex Rodriguez is under fire once again for rumored use of performance enhancing drugs. Rodriguez is rehabbing a bad hip, and in order to keep the media from hounding Rodriguez during his rehab, ESPN New York is reporting that the team will keep his rehab location a secret.
“I’m not going to say to try and keep away the extra whatever you want to call it, paparazzi, whatever...

The wait is over. ESPN’s two-week orgy of analysis is mercifully done and we can finally watch the Ravens and the 49ers battle in Super Bowl XLVII. We thought it would be fun to check in with some Yankees and ask them what their picks were for the Big Game. Check them out. (Watch Brosius guess the exact score–he is so clutch...
During the off-season before the 2009 season it was rumored that the Mets came very close to signing Derek Lowe only to have the Braves swoop in and grab the veteran pitcher. The made a low ball offer that they sat on saying they wouldn't bid against themselves, the Braves missed several pitchers and were able to become the highest bidder. Now most believed that the Braves...
Mark Teixeira gave a thoroughly honest interview to the Wall Street Journal in which he admitted that he is overpaid and aging.
Teixeira signed an eight-year, $180 million contract with the New York Yankees prior to the 2009 season. He has four seasons left under the current deal, and he is scheduled to earn $22.5 million each year.
Though he was one of the most productive first...
It’s not too often you hear a player in any sport admit that he is probably overpaid. Market determines value, and whatever you were able to get at the time of free agency is what you were worth. At least, in my opinion. But enter New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who recently opened [...]
I'm pretty sure Mark Teixeira is doing it wrong.The New York Yankees slugger opened up to the Wall Street Journal, admitting that, among other things, he is, well...not the player he used to be."Maybe I'm slowing down a tick. Look, I'm not going to play forever," the 32-year-old said. "Eventually you start, I don't want to say declining, but it...
