Found May 06, 2013 on IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
I'm just asking.But since his hitless debacle of a catching debut, with a suddenly lost Andy Pettitte, Romine has been squirreled away and forgotten.So instead of gaining experience at AAA, he rusts and thinks too much.We could always sign some veteran slug to play back-up.Rumor has it that he was spotted in Van Cortland Park yesterday, playing catcher for the British side.

Chris Bootcheck is on fire, yes, Chris Bootcheck; it's time to thinking about Chris Bootcheck, repeating... Chris Bootcheck is on fire...

Chris Bootcheck twirled another Masterpiece Theater yesterday - seven innings, one earned run - against Lena Durham, continuing his impending assault on the Scranton RailRider record books.  That one earned run doubled his total on the year, ending his  11-inning zeros streak. And if the Disney Channel has a candidate for the miracle Yankees in 2013, make no mistake - it's...

Chris Nelson goes to Colorado with revenge and his Yankee future on the line

May 15 is David Adams Day in the Yankiverse. The first 5,000 fans will receive a bobbled David Adams contract, which has stuck him in Limbo (aka Scranton) until May 15, (aka David Adams Day.)David Adams is currently hitting well and playing 3B for Scranton, which would had made him a Yankee now, but for the MLB rule that forbids teams from immediately resigning minor leaguers after...

New York Yankees Purchase Reliever Preston Claiborne

The New York Yankees have purchased the contract of right handed pitcher Preston Claiborne from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. To make room for him the organization has opted to designate right handed pitcher Cody Eppley for assignment. Claiborne is expected to pitch in middle-relief.

Andy Pettitte struggling to find feel for pitches

New York Yankees starting pitcher Andy Pettitte says he has no feel for his pitches after a second straight poor start. “Everything has been great in my [bullpen sessions]. But something is going on in the games,” Said Pettitte.

Alex Rodriguez Takes Field for First Time Since Surgery, Joining Yankees Teammates for Rehab

TAMPA, Fla. — Alex Rodriguez is back on the field for the first time since surgery on his left hip almost four months ago. He joined a group of injured New York Yankees starters Monday at the team’s minor league complex. The 37-year-old third baseman ran, played catch and hit off a tee. Rodriguez said it’s “like being 8 years old again when I first grabbed a bat.” He added...

First Month Review: American League

Which team do you think has been the most surprising in the American League to start the year? Which team would you think has been the most disappointing? I can give you a clue on who are my lead teams for both categories.   After a month of baseball not much has changed for a few teams in the American League from where they left off last season. In the AL Central the division leading...

Wells done: Vernon is valuable

Photo Credit: yesnetwork.comHe’s one of the lesser-known top paid players in Major League Baseball for the past few years. Vernon Wells. For the past three years he has been the second highest paid player overall ($24,187,500), trailing behind the notoriously highest paid Alex Rodriguez ($30 million). Only paid a few million less than Arod but his name is less seen in the tabloids...

We are going to Colorado to play shorthanded

How does a $200 million team have no bench, whatsoever?The next three nights, we may have to see Mariano play SS.Our usual SS, Eduardo Nunez, is listed as day to day. He has a bad rib. That can be really tricky. If Eduardo can't play, it means Jason Nix takes the slot. And it means if he comes up in the late innings, we cannot pinch hit for him.  Even Francisco Cervelli - our...

Alex Rodriguez back on field: ‘It’s like being 8 years old again’

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez is back playing baseball for the first time since undergoing surgery on his left hip four months ago.

Yankeetorial: A-Rod steps outside his pod and draws immediate fire from the watchdogs of socio-economic justice

However we feel about Alex Rodriguez, can we agree that yesterday, the man did something nice? He was the lone rehabbing player down in the Tampa clinic - the Yankee Hebrew Home at Riverside-South - to step outside the security fence and sign autographs for fans. He did this for about 30 minutes. It drew reporters the way a melted popsicle attracts ants. Naturally, the brotherhood...

Similarities between 2013 Yankees and 2009 Mets

The first thought readers will get after reading this headline is how I am knocking the Yankees. It could not be further from the truth. I am actually giving the team credit for its 18-12 start, something that did not seem possible given the amount of injuries the team has had to deal with. It all started with the Derek Jeter broken ankle in the 2012 postseason and continued with...

A’s Win Weekend Series Against the New York Yankees, Head to Cleveland

By My Calculations....

If Jason Nix didn't either hit a foul ball pop up caught by an infielder, or strike out, with Yankees in scoring position, we would have already won 6 more games instead of lost them.This guy should never be allowed to hit at an important moment in a game.  His .200 BA was built by two out singles, with no one on, in games that were either already won or lost based upon unbalance...
