From Joel Sherman:“I had a meeting with Hal [Steinbrenner] and Randy [Levine, Yankees president] at the owners meetings [in May], and I certainly did not get any indication from them that there will be any dramatic changes in how the Yankees do business,” Boras said by phone.
And Boras did not sound like he would have much sympathy for the Yankees trying to go frugal. He cited Yankees “revenues triple most major league teams.” But, mainly, he invoked the “George Steinbrenner legacy” of building the brand, a TV network and revenues by enlisting and keeping stars — no matter the cost.
“If that continues, the Yankees will still be viewed as a destination for players that is highly coveted,” Boras said.
Brian Cashman has said he would like to break the Yankees’ practice of waiting until free agency to negotiate contracts and would prefer to attempt to extend both Cano and Curtis Granderson (like Cano, also a free agent after 2013) this offseason.If I'm Brian Cashman ...

NEW YORK -- Phil Hughes has been called a lot of things in six seasons with the New York Yankees: phenom, shutdown reliever, All-Star starter and even an injury-prone bust. Now, Hughes might be regaining the moniker attached to him when he was selected by the Yankees in the first round of the 2004 draft: potential ace. Hughes allowed three solo homers but was otherwise effective...

The New York Yankees are stuck at the 60 win mark after losing their last two games to the Boston Red Sox, the latest coming in a 10 inning battle that the Yankees relief pitcher David Robertson lost to pick up his fourth loss on the season. The Yankees are still out in front in the A.L. East by 7-12 games over the Baltimore Orioles and they have no easy task in front of them, the...
Veteran outfielder Ichiro Suzuki showed off his outfield skills on Sunday night, catching a pop fly behind his back during batting practice. The ten-time All-Star and former rookie of the year joined the Yankees last week after a 11 year hall of fame career with the Mariners.
Ichiro is batting .261 with the Yankees, with two runs scored and two stolen bases in six games.
With one out in the bottom of the sixth inning at Yankee Stadium, Robinson Cano took a called third strike, and thus that baseball might be on the plane back to Boston with Jon Lester. Cano's strikeout was the 1,000th of Lester's career. He becomes the second Red Sox lefty to record 1,000 strikeouts. Lester is now only 46 K's away from tying fellow southpaw Bruce Hurst...
