McCann looks at a ball (Photo credit: rjcox) When plan A fails there is always plan B….right?  Correct. How does this relate to the current state of the New York Yankees? Well, I think it is about time for Yankees to look beyond their All-Star disabled list (DL). The hope that Jeter, A-Rod, Granderson, Youkilis, and Teixeira will ever be healthy enough to play at the level expected in the Bronx is dwindling. With July right around the corner, it would be irresponsible for GM Brian Cashman not to start weighing other options via the trade market, which officially ends on the 31st of next month. Now if I were Cashman, calling the Braves to ask what it would take to bring 6-time All-Star, catcher Brain McCann to the Bronx would be a good place to start. Why McCann? Well, like I predicted during the off-season, the mistake of letting Russell Martin walk is finally evolving. And since I do not believe the Yankees have a time machine to go back and resign Martin, getting McCann seems almo...

Shocker: Kevin Youkilis is on DL and Brian Cashman is all aflutter

I had to laugh to keep from cringing when my Red Sox friend Johnny pointed out to me Brian Cashman's latest pontificating on the state of the Yankees. Specifically, my friend cited Cashman telling the media yesterday this shocking news about Kevin Youkilis: that "back issues usually don’t get better." Gee, you think? Next thing you know, Cash will figure out that...

Yankees rumors: Active trade deadline likely for New York

The New York Yankees had to get active on the trade and free agent markets earlier than expected this season, as spring training injuries caused the team to make multiple transactions before the regular season even began. General manager Brian Cashman told Bryan Hoch of that he doesn’t expect that level of busyness to change with the summer trade season approaching...

Brian Cashman Finds Hitting Coach Kevin Long’s Comment About Mark Teixeira’s Wrist ‘Alarming’

Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long said what other people were thinking on Saturday. General manager Brian Cashman would prefer if he hadn’t. Long said Saturday that he wasn’t sure Mark Teixeira’s wrist “has been right” since the slugger came off the disabled list on May 31. That drew the ire of Cashman, who didn’t like that his hitting coach came out and said such to a...

Yankees injury updates

It seems as if every time the Yankees gain someone back from the disabled list, another player is moved onto it. Here are a few updates on the injured: Mark Teixeira: Although Joe Girardi said that Mark Teixeira will need at least a week to rest his wrist, GM Brian Cashman may want to give him a few weeks. According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger, Cashman is leaning...

Yankees GM may put Teixeira on DL

Slumping Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira could be sidelined a while longer because of his ailing right wrist. "I haven't done anything, but I'm leaning toward the disabled list," New York general manager Brian Cashman said Monday on a conference call. Teixeira missed the first 53 games of the season because of a wrist injury. The All-Star slugger is hitting...
