From Jon Heyman:The Yankees are still planning to make a qualifying offer of about $13.5 million to free agent Nick Swisher, but only to protect the draft choice, not with any hope or expectation he'd accept the offer and return to the Bronx.

Most baseball fans probably read this already either in the NY Daily News, NY Post or any national newspaper that New York Yankees fans ace CC Sabathia has an appointment with Dr. James Andrews this week.
The doctor’s visit is to get answers about why Sabathia’s left elbow, the one that landed on the 15-day...
The Yankees are sending Curtis Granderson to get his eyes examined. In some circles, 200 strikeouts are viewed as a sign of blindness. Who knew? Maybe last week, the Grandyman was seeing the 1963 Dodgers pitching staff. It was all a blur to him.So, now he'll go recite an eye chart. This has to be the best Yankee news since Dellin Betances threw a walkless inning in Arizona. ...
The Times of Trenton (New Jersey)October 21, 2012 Sunday Dear Editor:I have always been a Yankees fan. The antics of the owners, the late father, George Steinbrenner, and now his sons, always amazed me with their lack of class.

Everyone knows how billionaires love-love-love capitalism and hate-hate-hate commies - you know, like Obama and George Soros. Hell, they didn't get to be billionaires by organizing co-ops. Nevertheless, something happens when they buy baseball teams. Then, they turn pinko. Things like top-down artificial salary caps make sense. Last year, they managed to put one into place on...
Brian Cashman is going to get asked a lot of questions this offseason. Some will be about the New York Yankees’ postseason struggles. Some will be about the future of Robinson Cano and a new contract. Some will revolve around the return of Andy Pettitte. Some will center around the health of C.C. Sabathia. But the majority of questions Cashman will be forced to deal with on a daily...
Sports columnist Mike Lupica may be the newspaper equivalent of a slugger whose best days were in the 1970s, but every once in a while, he can still hit a mistake pitch out of the ballpark. The New York Daily News writer had a great column this Sunday about what I've been saying and thinking recently about the Yankees front office -- that the Yankees' rhetoric about how the...
In the past week I’ve seen some amateur events (UF Scout Day, Florida Diamond Club) that I’ll write about here and I’ll be covering the WWBA tournament in Jupiter for ESPN. I also still have lots of instructs reports and extra regular season minor league reports to offload. So, before I move on to all these new topics, here’s the final notes from Yankees instructs, starting...
Alex Rodriguez is no longer a superstar, and while a trade is
"unrealistic," all offers for the high-priced slugger will be
considered, Yankees GM Brian Cashman said Sunday.
After being swept by the Detroit Tigers in the ALCS, the New York Yankees are now receiving more bad news, as ace CC Sabathia is being sent to have his pitching elbow examined by Dr. James Andrews. The injury is believed to be a bone spur, but Sabathia admits that he is concerned about the possibility [...]
