Yankees' Limit is Actually a Good Thing

Hal Steinbrenner's $189 million dollar mandate, which has since been downgraded from mandate to goal, might actually not be such a bad thing for the Yankees. The mandate begs the question of what is more important- winning now, or sacrificing for the future? The answer to that question is both. And that's exactly what the Yankees intend to do this offseason. They...

Correction: Brian Cashman was not practicing perjury yesterday. He was giving the world a lesson in the art form known as Qualifiers.

In a previous post, I suggested that Brian Cashman was less than candid yesterday, when he told a radio interview that he wants Alex Rodriguez back next year at $25 million.In fact, Cashman said exactly what he said... with qualifiers. To enhance the listening, or reading process, I have decided to print the statement in full, sizing the qualifiers as they were meant to be emphasized...

Signing Masahiro Tanaka Could Easily Payoff For The New York Yankees

Tampa Bay Rays ace David Price thinks it’ll be very likely that he gets traded this winter, and that would make him the most talented pitching on the trading market. For the New York Yankees, I really don’t see any way they would be able to obtain Price, or even engage in serious talks for the Cy Young left-hander, but they may still be able to get the best pitcher on the free...

New York Yankees Position Breakdown: Shortstop

Shortstop: It’s been considered by many to be one of the toughest positions to play on the baseball field, and for the New York Yankees, it could be the toughest position in the lineup to fill in 2014. Derek Jeter most most of the 2013 season — one which he called a “nightmare” on several occasions — because of constant injuries. After breaking his ankle in the 2012 playoffs...

Yankees: Keeping Curtis in the Bronx is Grandy idea

If the sentiments of New York Yankees inherited owner Hal Steinbrenner are true about his first priority is to field a championship caliber ball club in 2014; than GM Brian Cashman has a lot of work to do. The list of issues and foreseeable problems facing the Yankees are plentiful. But one particular player current Yankee, Curtis Granderson is about to hit free agency and I hope...

Brian Cashman Calls Alex Rodriguez Irreplaceable At Third Base

Alex Rodriguez will continue his appeal against Major League Baseball this Wednesday in New York, as he’ll continue to present his case to reduce his 211-game suspension in front of arbitrator Frederick Horowitz. Part of A-Rod’s case will include his beliefs that the New York Yankees are trying to keep him off the field in order to save the near $30 million he will he owed in...

Pinstripe Pride and Perjury: Rehearsing for court, Cashman claims he can't wait for Alex Rodriguez to return

Brian Cashman took to the airwaves yesterday to talk about A-Rod and things. Why, he can't wait for Alex to come back! Nothing would give him more joy than to see ol' Numbah Thirteen back on the field!"Having Alex Rodriguez man third base is obviously by far the best option for the Yankees.""It comes down to, would we want the player we signed to be playing...

Brian Cashman Calls Alex Rodriguez ‘Irreplaceable’, Robinson Cano ‘Best’ Second Baseman

In a somewhat surprising interview, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman defended troubled third baseman Alex Rodriguez. Forget the fact that the Yankees missed the playoffs for just the second time in 19 years, they’re old and banged up, and likely trying to maneuver their payroll under the $189 million threshold — those factors alone would be reason enough for Cashman to try...

Cashman: Yeah, we want A-Rod back

You know the old saying: Don't assume, because you make ... well, wrong assumptions. Didn't you just figure that the Yankees want Alex Rodiguez's 211-game doping suspension to be upheld by Major League Baseball, so not only will they be free of the A-Rod Circus -- but also so they would also see his $25 million salary come off the payroll, a big boost as the Yanks try...

Cashman: Can't Replace A-Rod

Brian Cashman did an interview on the Ian O'Connor Show and he was asked point blank if the Yankees wanted A-Rod back if he was the team's best available option at third base. Cashman's response? Duh. Per ESPN: "There are a lot of layers to that question," Cashman said. "It comes down to, 'Would we want the player we signed to...

Yankees GM would rather have Alex Rodriguez play than his contract money

Many people believe the Yankees would be better off if Alex Rodriguez’s suspension is upheld keeping him sidelined for all of 2014 while knocking his $25 million salary off the payroll as the team tries to get below the $189 million luxury tax threshold. Brian Cashman isn’t one of them. The Yankees general manager reiterated that thought during an appearance on ESPN Radio Sunday...

Brian Cashman: We Can’t Replace A-Rod

Alex Rodriguez has been a lightning rod for controversy in pinstripes, there’s no doubt about that. With a current 200+ game suspension looming in regards to the Bio-genesis scandal (Rodriguez IS appealing) and a massive contract, some might wonder why the Yankees want to keep him around. Well, it looks like Brian Cashman is an A-Rod supporter and doesn’t want him to go anywhere...

Yankees GM Cashman: We need A-Rod back

After months of conflicting reports of whether or not the New York Yankees were privately hoping that Alex Rodriguez would be suspended for all of 2014 (mainly for the $25M in immediate salary relief), the pinstripes Brian Cashman emphatically and publicly stated in no uncertain terms that the team needs their 3-time American League MVP back.  According to ESPNNewYork.com, Cashman...

Yankees: Postseason players linked to PEDs not named Alex Rodriguez

In early September Mike Lupica of the NY Daily News reported that MLB Commissioner Bud Selig wanted Yankees Alex Rodriguez in the postseason in 2013 English: Alex Rodriguez (Photo credit: Wikipedia) about as much as he wanted Barry Bonds to break the home run record of Selig’s dear friend, the great Henry Aaron. It is no secret Selig has been on a mission to turn A-Rod into the...

Mets don't expect to pursue Robinson Cano in free agency

According to sources New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson is not interested in pursuing Robinson Cano in free agency. While some thought that they could sneak in and steal the All-Star second baseman it's looking increasingly more likely that they'll stand pat on the high end free agent market. That takes the Mets and Dodgers out as potential suitors for Cano this...
