PLAYERS: Adam Warren
TEAMS: New York Yankees
The trade deadline looms.Cashman and his crew of misguided staffers can yet build a fantasy that the Yankees can still win this thing.  Now.  This year.  MO's last season.They can pony up any and all prospects ( I hesitate to name any, because losing Yankee minor league position players is not a big risk ), including some of the players ( mostly pitchers ) who have had a taste of the Bronx and done well ( Adam Warren,  Nunu, Foghorn leghorn, mystery man Montogomery, etc), and trade them for a passle of $12million guys who are, say, 60 days younger than Wells, Hafner, Pukilis and more.We can get a fresh set of over-the-hill, former all stars, who will give us a nice 30-45 day run before their tanks go to fumes.  Joe can get back to 3 games over .500, while adding the equivalent of A-Rod's contract to the payroll in a single swipe.Fear this, friends.  Fear it.Cashman and the Steinbunglers still believe in the ancient magic.  Evidence, proof, science, reality and intelligence d...

Yankees bring Neal up, Adams sent down

The Yankees have called up outfielder Thomas Neal from Triple-A Scranton prior to tonight’s game with the Angels. Infielder David Adams has been sent down to make room on the roster. Adams started off on the right foot with the Yankees but has since cooled off, picking up just two hits in his last 25 at-bats. Neal, 25, put up a batting line of .339/.426/.446 with two homers and...

Yankees Tom Kahnle, Mark Montgomery Could Provide Bullpen Depth

The New York Yankees are in need of a shakeup at the major league level even if it is mainly on offense. The Yankees have an above average pitching staff but an anemic lineup, and with so many players headed to Free Agency, will need to make a lot of decisions as they approach the trade deadline.While players like Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte and Hiroki Kuroda represent no trade...

Kuroda, not Sabathia, anchoring pitching staff for Yankees

In Japan, where traditional ranking permeates even baseball, the ace of a team’s pitching staff typically wears the number 18. It is a custom confined to that country, although Hiroki Kuroda has certainly upheld its notion in baseball’s metropolis. Kuroda has played ace for the Yankees this season. But the team will need Sabathia to start carrying more of the load.   Indeed...

David Adams botched pop-up call highlights Yankees' blooper reel

The New York Yankees have scored 16 runs in the last seven games and manager Joe Girardi has to be disheartened every time he fills out a lineup card with names like Neal, Brignac and Romine filling out the bottom of the batting order. They haven't been helping themselves on the field either as second baseman David Adams spectacularly showed Friday night against the Los Angeles...

Yankees game 69 lineup: 6/16/13

Happy Father’s Day! The Yankees look to avoid yet another sweep this afternoon when they play the Angels. They will try and do so without Mark Teixeira, who was sent back to New York early to get his wrist examined. Teix re-aggrivated it yesterday and was removed from the game, obviously not good news for the team. Probably the best pitching matchup of the weekend, CC Sabathia...

Teixeira has no new tears in wrist

Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has no new tears in the tendon sheath around his inflamed right wrist. Teixeira got a cortisone shot Sunday. New York manager Joe Girardi says he will be re-evaluated next week. Teixeira left the Yankees' 6-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday in the fourth inning. The Yankees sent him back to New York for evaluation on his problematic...

New York Yankees: Derek Jeter medically cleared for baseball activites

After nearly eight months of recovery, New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has finally been cleared to resume full baseball activities. Jeter has been taking grounders and playing long toss at 180 feet for a few days, but on Wednesday he was fully medically cleared. Jeter was examined by Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte and is now permitted to run on his surgically repaired left...

Yankees' Kevin Youkilis returns to DL with back trouble

Kevin Youkilis just can't seem to shake his back problems. The New York Yankees were forced to place him back on the DL just two weeks after returning from a month on the DL with a lumbar strain. Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that this latest problem is from a different source, likely a nerve issue, which is causing numbness in his big toe and calf. Youkilis...

Yankees Attendance And TV Ratings At Record Lows

  This may come as a shocker for most, but believe it or not even the mighty Yankees are having problems selling tickets. With a wave of injuries to key players–Jeter, Teixeira, Arod, Granderson it’s not really a surprise that numbers are down, but what’s shocking is just how much they’ve slumped, despite the Yankees winning ways. The Wall Street Journal reported: Through...

Preview: Yankees @ Angels (6/16/13)

It’s up to CC Sabathia (6-5, 4.07 ERA) to answer the Yankees prayers and stop the skid against the Angels and Jered Weaver (1-2, 3.77 ERA). Sabathia took a step back in his last start after 2 solid outings, allowing six runs (two homers) in a loss to the A’s. His fastball velocity has come back a bit, but he struggled with command in Oakland. “It’s disappointing. It’s definitely...

Mariano Rivera delivers pizza to Oakland A's employee

As New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera continues his farewell tour across the Major League Baseball, he decided to pay his respect one member of the Oakland Athletics organization. Oakland A's mailroom employee Julie Vasconcellos (who have worked from the A's for 20 years) got a special surprise from Mariano as he delivered a pizza to her. Below is the video of the...

If you needed a laugh this weekend, you might want to check out this clip called "Bad British Commentary" of an opening week MLB game between the Boston Red Sox/New York Yankees. Who knew that Ichiro looked so much like Joseph Gordon-Levitt? (Courtesy of Deadspin)

Umpire CB Bucknor punches out Seth Smith on strike two (GIF)

Umpire C.B. Bucknor was a little too eager to punch out Oakland A’s left fielder Seth Smith on Thursday. Smith was facing New York Yankees reliever Adam Warren during the bottom of the 11th inning and had a 2-1 count. Warren threw a change that backed up into the zone, and Smith took it for [...]

Fantasy Baseball Daily League Analysis (June 15, 2013)

My Top 3 Starting Pitchers David Phelps- He is a very good value play at 5500. The xFIP is very good at 3.88 and good K% at 24.2%. While the Angels are not an ideal match up. All you are look for is around 10 points at that price. Lance Lynn- An obvious play as [...]
