Found February 04, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is not running yet but has been fielding ground balls and taking batting practice as he recovers from surgery to repair a broken left ankle. He also addressed the latest PED allegations related to teammate Alex Rodriguez ... sort of. Jeter said Monday he is on schedule to be ready by Opening Day. "Everything's been good, everything's right where it needs to be," Jeter said in the New York Daily News. "The goal is April 1, that's when we start our season. I'm progressing, right where I need to be." Jeter hit in the batting cage at the Yankees' minor-league complex in Tampa, Fla., Monday morning and fielded 55 grounders. He will not start running, however, until position players report to spring training on Feb. 17. When asked by reporters about Rodriguez, Jeter declined to comment. "Let him speak first," Jeter said.

He expects to be ready by Opening Day on April 1. "Everything's been good, everything...

Teixeira admits to being overpaid.

  Mark Teixeira says he is “overpaid.”   Usually when athletes talk about their contracts, they are complaining about how small it is, but, apparently, Mark Teixeira is not one of those athletes. In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, he stated that he is overpaid and “on the backside of [his] career.” Talk about honesty. A week following a Yankee player who has...

From intern to GM, Cashman deserves respect

When Brian Cashman began his internship with the Yankees in 1987, he saw then GM Woody Woodward buckle under The Boss. Nicknamed The Pharmacist because of his trove of stress-relieving medication, Woodward resigned after one year. Being the General Manager for the Yankees under George Steinbrenner was just as good as an internship it seemed like. Cashman was almost 20 then, and was...

Yankees reportedly trying to protect Alex Rodriguez from paparazzi

Alex Rodriguez appears to be hiding. Between rehabbing an injury that could sideline him for much of the 2013 season and facing accusations surrounding performance-enhancing drug use, A-Rod is likely not anxious to speak to the media any time soon.

Mark Teixeira: I Know I am Overpaid

  It’s not too often you hear a player in any sport admit that he is probably overpaid. Market determines value, and whatever you were able to get at the time of free agency is what you were worth. At least, in my opinion. But enter New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira, who recently opened [...]

Yankee Super Bowl Picks

America’s Game (Courtesy of Wikimedia Commons) The wait is over.  ESPN’s two-week orgy of analysis is mercifully done and we can finally watch the Ravens and the 49ers battle in Super Bowl XLVII.  We thought it would be fun to check in with some Yankees and ask them what their picks were for the Big Game.  Check them out.  (Watch Brosius guess the exact score–he is so clutch...
