Are the Yankees in decline? Chris Dickerson might have something to say about that

Today, the Yankees finally put the whipping mule known as Chris Dickerson out of its misery.His only crime, as Mike A at River Ave eulogized, was to be a left-handed outfielder on a team laden - some might say top-heavy - with left-handed outfielders. He was dropped so the Yankees could sign Russ Canzler off the scrap heap. Canzler, jettisoned by the Cleveland Indians, bats right...

The Fight to be the Mighty Righty. Here's the tale of the tape:AGE:  Canzler:...

Mark Teixeira ushers in 2013 with a fine piece of shilling

Wow. He could become the Jackie Robinson of Breath-Right Nasal Strips.He'll break the nasal barrier. What courage! For so many years, no one stepped forward to don the strip. Damn, do we feel proud or what?Dear God, can't you do something? Can't you twitch your nose like Samantha in "Bewitched" and turn this guy into Moose Skowron? Breath Right Nasal Strips...

Yankee Universe and Ravens Ray Lewis

Let me start by declaring that I have been a HUGE fan of linebacker Ray Lewis since the Baltimore Ravens beat my New York Giants in the Super Bowl XXXV back in 2000. (you can read my 2012 ALDS story about my encounter with Ray here or my past post titled Rarefied Ray.) To give you more of an idea of the adoration I have for this man, after watching the Ravens torch my Giants...
COMEBACK TRAIL

Rivera nearing full recovery

Mariano Rivera missed nearly all of the baseball season after tearing his ACL, but the Yankees closer says he is close to a full recovery.

Big Puma Back to the Bronx?

The New York Yankees seem to have one strategy this off season. They want to sign older players near the end of their careers to 1 year deals, and their interest in veteran Lance Berkman is the perfect example of this trend. Berkman is entering his 15th major league season and will be the ripe age of 37 at the end of 2013 campaign. The Yanks have their eye on Berkman’s bat, he’s...

Yankees Rumors: New York Interested in Lance Berkman

The New York Yankees are interested in free agent slugger Lance Berkman, according to Ken Davidoff of The New York Post, but it’s not clear if the veteran would consider returning to the Big Apple given the interest of clubs from his home state of Texas. The #Yankees are interested in Lance Berkman, but it's not clear whether he'd consider a return to NY given the...

Swisher is going to be tough for Yankees to replace

Under the city lights of New York, Nick Swisher's personality often shined brighter than his performance. The smiling, laughing right fielder was largely overshadowed by the bigger names in the Yankees' lineup, but this winter, the Indians gave Swisher the star treatment and wooed him to Cleveland with a four-year deal. "Where we were going to be wanted and where we...

Lonely Days Ahead For Die-Hard Yankee Fans

The off-season is winding down. Pitchers and catchers report to camp next month. The season starts in a little less than three months. Are you excited, Yankee fans?With the $189 million payroll threshold just a year away, I have been wondering just how excited this team's fans will be as it approaches that very un-Yankee-like deadline. In the decades before the dynasty of the...

Poll: The All-Time Gotham Baseball Team

While baseball writers submit their ballots for next week's Hall Of Fame announcements, those of us who don't have a vote are relegated to reading the explanations of those writers as to why they voted or didn't vote for certain players.A few of those players (Mike Piazza, Time Raines, etc) spent some of their best years on New York City teams. While they may or may not...
