While I would point out that Thundercats was a popular show when Carlos Beltran was a child, it is unlikely that he watched too much of it while living in Puerto Rico. That being said, he certainly looks a lot like he could star in a live-action version of the show after we saw this […]Continue reading...

Teams Scouting Francisco Cervelli; Will NY Deal?

Ever since the New York Yankees signed Brian McCann, it’s been clear that the team has more than enough catchers to go around. Trade rumors have come and gone throughout the offseason and spring training, and, to be honest, I never really thought anything would happen. The reason? Well, truth be told, despite the surplus of catchers, I wasn’t sure that there was enough talent...

Deep Breath: Don't Worry About Kuroda

If you’re in a Yankees news kind of mood, just head to the news section of Google and search, “New York Yankees.” You’ll find a lot of rabble about Hiroki Kuroda, and how he got simply plastered today. No, not that kind of plastered (though I’m sure Hiro is looking forward to retirement so he can day drink on a Wednesday). I wasn’t originally going to write about...

Hitting in the clutch: Frankie Cervelli has his first 2-HR game, and it might mean his ticket out of Yankee Hell

I like Francisco Cervelli. Always have. Twice, he's been rushed to hospitals in ambulances, still wearing his NY jersey. He's a homegrown Yank, a fighter - albeit a snake-bitten one - who somehow managed to stay positive during some of the most depressing scenarios any player could imagine. (How about an entire season on a bus, traveling the New York State Thruway...

Yankees Spring Training Game 16: Pineda strong in Spring start

Baltimore Orioles 0 — New York Yankees 6 Michael Pineda made his first start of the Spring today. He started with a strikeout before giving up a pair of singles. In an unusual play, Steve Pearce would fly out to left field and trail runner, Henry Urrutia, would be called out for not touching second base on the fly out. Pineda would have a very strong second inning with two strikeouts...

Yankees' David Robertson will succeed as closer

The New York Yankees lost the greatest closer of all time when Mariano Rivera retired from the game at the end of the 2013 season. The team spent more than $500 million on free agents this offseason and not one player was signed with the intention of replacing Rivera.The Yankees decided potentially long before the offseason began that they would be best served to have Rivera’s...

Our own Yankee insider has been told that the Yankees are possibly listening to offers for catching backup...

Let’s take a look at not only the greatest closer in Yankees history, but also the greatest closer in Major League baseball history, the great Mariano Rivera. I can hear the public address announcer, “Your attention please, ladies and gentlemen, now pitching for the Yankees, number 42, Mariano Rivera, number 42″, as the song “Enter Sandman” is playing. You knew when you...

Yanks stuck with most famous fifth outfielder if they can’t deal Ichiro

Ichiro Suzuki led off for the first time this spring Wednesday and started in left for the second time — both against Detroit — and, lo and behold, the Tigers need a lefty-swinging left fielder after losing Andy Dirks for half a season following back surgery.
