IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
Yesterday, one of the GMs at the winter meetings assured the songbird Gammonites that the Yankees wouldn't stay cheapo much longer, that a big splash was coming, that the Yankees are always the Yankees. It reminded me of the final scene in "Cool Hand Luke," where George Kennedy is fantasizing to the prison yard how Paul Newman is out there with "that ol' Luke smile," prowling with women and wine, even though Cool Hand is with the worms.Thanks to the Scroogebrenners, we are wriggling with the worms. Now... it could be that Cashman is poker-facing a giant move. If we know anything, it's that Cash doesn't show his public hand in deals. And at this point, the Yankee speculation machine is little more than than an underground coal fire that's been going on for decades. We were chasing Torii Hunter, we were chasing Shane Victorino., were chasing (Insert Name Here.) Want more? Go to Bleacher Report. The 12-year-olds will outline the reasons we're...

BACK ON THE PROWL
Yankees shortstop and renowned ladykiller Derek Jeter allegedly was spotted with swimsuit model Hannah Davis, an old flame, in a New York hotel bar on Monday night.
WHO'S THE BOSS?
Yankees GM Brian Cashman reportedly lacked the authority to make any offers to free agents at the winter meetings without consulting team ownership first.
Derek Eater? Well that didn’t last very long.
Yankee fans woke up on Friday morning to a horrifying sight, Derek Jeter significantly overweight on the back page of the New York Post. The Post’s report stated that Jeter had “turned to the fork” and lost control of his weight during rehab on his injured left ankle.
The report, however, was proven false when MLB Network tweeted...
Derek Jeter says his surgically repaired left ankle feels good and he expects to be the New York Yankees' starting shortstop on opening day.
Jeter was at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night to surprise more than 500 children from New York City at his Turn 2 Foundation's holiday party. It was his first public visit to the Bronx since having surgery in late October to repair...
Shopworn, and juiceless, 10-time Silver Slugger Award winner Alex Rodriguez will undergo surgery on his left hip and likely won’t return to the diamond until roughly the All-Star break. The 37-year-old Rodriguez, who acquired the bynames “A-Fraud” and ******** Tits” … Continue reading →
Alex Rodriguez went to see doctors with hopes of finding something wrong. When they actually located a problem, only then did he start feeling a bit better.
The New York Yankees' third baseman said Saturday that plans set for him to have surgery on his left hip in mid-January, and that he's eager to embrace the challenge of coming back from both the operation and an unbelievably...
Unfortunately, the best news to come out of the winter meetings so far is that Derek Jeter believes he should be ready for Opening Day. Jeter, 38, who was criticized last week for being "out of shape" after a picture was taken of him walking down the street with a bit of a gut, says he feels good and that he is moving around a lot better after recovering from ankle surgery...
Today the news broke of the need for New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez to undergo surgery for a torn labrum in his left hip that will keep him out of action for 4-6 months after he has the operation in early January. Initially, thoughts would involve the Yankees staying in house, perhaps using Eduardo Nunez there until A-Rod is ready. A logical platoon with Nunez...
The uniform Don Larsen was wearing when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history has sold for $756,000.
The former New York Yankees' right-hander achieved perfection in Game 5 of the 1956 Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The pinstriped uniform with No. 18 on the back received 22 bids in an online auction on Steinersports.com. The winning bidder was not identified...
In hour 2 of The Warning Track Karen and Mike talking MLB Winter Meetings and the New York Yankees can add third baseman to the Christmas wish list with A-Rod having hip surgery. Who are they targeting in this thin market?
Dickey on the trade market, who can the Mets expect to get in return?
NFL picks, bowl game match-ups and Heisman candidates.
The Warning Track...
The third base market continues to clear. Eric Chavez is now off the market, as the Diamondbacks signed the veteran to a one-year, $3 million deal Wednesday.
As the contract suggests, Chavez is unlikely to be a full-time player in Arizona. However, given the myriad struggles the club experienced at third base last season, we can expect Chavez to play a significant role. He hit .281...
