IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
In the sixth round of the recent draft, the Yankees picked John Murphy - a 5'11" shortstop from Sacred Heart University. This season, he led the team in all major offensive categories and came within three hits of setting the all-time school record. He is my official hope to someday replace Derek Jeter.To bring him on board, the Yankees will shell out an incredible bonus of... drum roll, please... $20,000.Twenty thousand dollars. No misprint. Twenty thousand dollars.Don't get me wrong: $20,000 is some fine beer money. We're talking bread - you know, dough, skamootz, gaboolla, hroooooogh. For $20,000, I'll do things that are best not described in a public post. (Contact me.) But - please correct me now - didn't we always hear about fat, lazy, prima-dona kid athletes who were being horribly overpaid by pro teams? Weren't we - as fat-chewing blowhards - entitled to whine about how American youth wants everything - all the toys and candy - without having t...

Many New York Yankees fans seem to want to ignore the reality of what is going on over in the Bronx.
That is the Yankees are falling apart.
Typical slump time for a contending team is just about up, and the Yankees seem to be progressively getting worse.
Here are some daunting facts that all of us have to face: ...
New York Yankees corner infielder Kevin Youkilis underwent
back surgery yesterday, and the procedure “went well,” according to the surgeon
that performed the operation, Dr. Robert Watkins. When it was announced that the surgery was required, the Yankees said it would sideline Youkilis for 10 to
12 weeks, but general manager Brian Cashman admitted to reporters – including...
The steps in his recovery seem to be coming much quicker now. Derek Jeter has progressed from hitting off a tee and doing some light soft toss to hitting in the cage and staking batting practice now. The veteran shortstop had not taken batting practice since suffering a re-fracture of his surgically-repaired ankle.
Derek Jeter took batting practice today down in Tampa for...

Phil Hughes has been pretty awful for the New York Yankees.
Through the first month of the 2013 season, Hughes looked like a very good pitcher. Though he’d only produced one win, he had just one start in which he gave up more than three earned runs. His HR/9 rate looked as though it might be under control and he had a five start stretch where he...

When plan A fails there is always plan B….right?
How does this relate to the current state of the New York Yankees?
Well, I think it is about time for Yankees to look beyond their All-Star disabled list (DL).
The hope that Jeter, A-Rod, Granderson, Youkilis, and Teixeira will ever be healthy enough to play at the level expected...
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told
reporters – including Mark Feinsand of The New York Daily News – that center
fielder Curtis Granderson had the pin removed from his broken left hand
Following the procedure, Granderson is now slated to do a
strengthening program for a week or so before he picks up a bat. He’ll then
have to go through...
The daughter of former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre is getting props from her dad for catching a baby who had tumbled off a second-floor fire escape in Brooklyn.
Torre said in a statement Wednesday that he is ''very proud of my daughter Cristina's actions today during an incident in Brooklyn involving a small child.'' Torre is now Major League Baseball...
After a split against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Yankees continue their homestand against the Tampa Bay Rays starting tonight. The pitching match-up features a pair of lefties – veteran Andy Pettitte and young phenom Matt Moore. Joe Girardi has decided to move Jayson Nix to third and Reid Brignac to short, stating that he wants the best defensive left side of the infield possible...

This year has not been pretty for the Yankees. Considering the team they have had to field most of the season, they have actually been very successful. Nearly every Yankee “regular” has gotten injured and missed time this year. One of the more notable is Derek Jeter, not only because of his stature in the game, the fact that he is the Captain and...
Andy Pettitte (5-4, 3.95 ERA) squares off against Matt Moore (8-3, 4.12 ERA) and the Tampa Bay Rays in the first game of four. Pettitte will look to get back on track against the Rays after allowing four runs and a season high 11 hits against the Angels Friday. Since coming off the DL he has been inconsistent, allowing nine runs in 19 innings.
If Pettitte can hand the ball over to...

New York Yankees fans are used to a certain brand of baseball that includes a lot of home runs and scoring and they haven’t been getting that with this season’s version of the Bronx Bombers.
The Yankees have been forced to field a lineup stacked with inadequate hitters due to a litany of devastating injuries to key players, but it seems like the fans won’t be tolerating...
Since becoming the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, Jason Kidd has done the usual public speaking/press conferences but back on Wednesday night, he got the chance to throw out the first pitch at Yankees Stadium.
Before the start of the Yankees/Dodgers, Kidd and his son Noah took to the Yankees Stadium mound and J-Kidd delivered a pretty good first pitch:
