Like many players who make the move over to that team in the Bronx, Kevin Youkilis has gone through a drastic transformation.
Youkilis unveiled his new batting stance in a video interview with the YES Network. The new Yankees third baseman described it as “a wider, more athletic ‘linebacker’-type foot position to achieve better balance.”
Youkilis also decided to discontinue the beard we are all accustomed to seeing. The New York Yankees enforce its players to be clean cut and dressed properly, remember Johnny Damon?
Check out Youkilis’ new batting stance below.

So the Alex Rodriguez saga continues, but no one can seem to find him?
Alex Rodriguez – Yankee Stadium.
Well according Bill Maddon of the New York Daily News :
“The latest word on Alex Rodriguez, wherever he is, is that he’s scared. Not scared because of all these revelations about his involvement with an associate named Tony Bosch, an alleged dispenser of HGH and testosterone...
After concerns that Michael Pineda could miss the entire 2013 season for the Yankees, fear started setting in. At least among Yankees fans. New York had traded away Jesus Montero to get Pineda. He couldn't flop. Now, it seems Pineda will not miss the 2013 season after all. He threw from a half-mound yesterday for the first time.

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. That is why the New York Yankees are doing their best to protect him.
“I’m not going to say to try and keep away the extra, whatever...
The Yankees drafted second baseman David Adams in the third round of the 2008 MLB Draft out of the University of Virginia. He missed large portions of the 2010 and 2011 seasons after suffering a broken ankle but he bounced back in a big way last season, not only proving he was finally once again healthy but back to being the productive player he always has been.
If one thing can be said about Ivan Nova over his brief career already, it’s that he is very confident.
Confidence in sports is just as important as physical ability. It all starts with the belief that anything is possible – the talent will take care of the rest. Especially for a young starting pitcher in the majors, belief in your ability may be the most important thing.
