Yesterday, the terrible words crashed upon us like the news of Pearl Harbor: KEPPINGER HAS SIGNED ELSEWHERE!!! My first thought was, omg, we were trying to sign the umpire? But no, it was Keppinger! KEPPINGER! And he hath scorned us! A utility infielder! A few botched grounders removed from Jason Nix!  Gone! And Chavez, too! Along with the outfielder, Schiensomethingorther - whose name I now never have to spell.Gone. The free agent nobody swamp is nearly drained, and we never even dabbled our big toe. Which means the Stein-189 campaign continues. We are marching to Pretoria. And now, stand back, everybody, as we place our faith in a concept that terrifies both physicists and magicians: Yes, it's the return of the Brian Cashman trade. God help us. Let's hope the Mayans were right. I'm rooting for a giant winged snake to attack NYC. Placing faith in a Cashman deal is like betting that Taylor Swift's next relationship will last forever.We've talked about Cash's ...

Yankees Hot Stove: 9 tweets fans do not want to read

Yankee Stadium on July 1, 2010 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The New York Yankeesoff-season has been an unpleasant wake-up call of what is to come. As a fan to say that my heart is breaking would be an understatement, as the new Yankee reign still talks the talk but it is all smoke and mirrors. With the number of holes, aging and injured players and the fact that GM Brain Cashman has...

Derek Jeter Doesn’t Look Fat in Most Recent Picture of Rehabbing Yankees Captain (Photo)

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...

Yankees Check in on Josh Hamilton

Not Cashman? Are the Yankees brass pulling another Rafael Soriano type move here? There was also an article by Joel Sherman in today's New York Post where he says that George Steinbrenner and the old Yankees brass would never pass up on the chance of getting Josh Hamilton in Pinstripes, which is very true. It will be interesting to see how this whole thing plays out.

Curtis Granderson Sharpens His Sumo Wrestling Skills During Visit to Japan (Photos)

Once his baseball career is over, Curtis Granderson could have a future in sumo wrestling. During his stay in Japan — as part of the MLB International Ambassador Program — Granderson started sharpening his sumo wrestling squats alongside a professional and tweeted a picture for the world to see. In addition to working on his form, the Yankees center fielder also attended sumo...

Yankees in Talks With A.J. Pierzynski

This would be a solid signing for the Yankees, who as you know are in desperate need of a catcher.

Report: Andruw Jones agrees to play in Japan

Andruw Jones has reached an agreement with the Rakuten Golden Eagles on a one-year deal worth about $3.6 million to play in Japan, Nikkansports.com reported Friday. If the report is accurate, Jones would become one of the biggest Major League Baseball stars to play in Japan. Jones, 35, hit just .197 with 14 homers and 34 RBIs in 233 at-bats for the Yankees last season. Jones...

D-backs sign Chavez, Nieves to bolster bench

NASHVILLE While blockbuster rumors swirled, the Diamondbacks tidied up their bench and catching situations Wednesday, signing free agent veterans Eric Chavez and Wil Nieves to fill reserve roles at third base and catcher.Chavez, who would figure to get most of his at-bats against right-handers while spelling Chris Johnson at third, signed a one-year, 3 million contract. He hit 16...

Cashman: "Beggars can't be choosers..."

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...

Your Morning Dump... Where the Yankees want Youk

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The final act of Brian Cashman’s dormant week at the winter meetings was to assure the baseball world, through his words and a $12 million contract offer to Kevin Youkilis, that the Yankees were still...

Report: Yankees ‘Quietly Running Background Check’ on Josh Hamilton

This offseason has been rather un-Yankee-like. That doesn’t mean the Bronx Bombers should be ruled out of anything, though While the Yankees have been relatively quiet thus far, even losing out on guys like Jeff Keppinger, New York is apparently still doing its due diligence on perhaps the biggest fish in free agency. According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, the Yankees are...

The Winter Meetings & the Quest For $189M

The Winter Meetings will come to a close today and, if all things remain the same, the Yankees will have signed and/or traded for no one.It's been a disappointing week for Yankee fans. Yesterday was especially disappointing, as Eric Chavez and Jeff Keppinger, two players who were looked at as a third base platoon in 2013, signed with the Diamondbacks and White Sox respectively...

Baseball news for the Yankees and Mets

The "Winter Meetings" has been so far not so fun if you are a Yankees fan or a Mets fan. There hasn't been so much news to report on both the New York City teams. The Yankees biggest news of the winter meetings was losing A-Rod to hip surgery. A-Rod will be out for at least four to six months and won't be back until June. Also, the Mets have signed David Wright...
