Yankees Still Unsure of Pettitte's Return Date

From George King: With Ivan Nova getting spanked the past two outings and Freddy Garcia failing to provide consistent length, the Yankees’ rotation requires a boost. That is expected to be supplied by Andy Pettitte, but general manager Brian Cashman can’t predict an exact date when the 40-year-old lefty will come off the disabled list. ... “We have to let the healing...

Girardi: "I Just Felt It Was Time To Go To Robbie"

Joe Girardi dodged a bullet last night. A self-inflicted bullet.By removing CC Sabathia with 2 outs in the 7th inning and replacing him with David Robertson, Girardi was setting himself up for a failure that would have left everyone in Yankees Universe devastated. The move could have led to a third straight loss to the Tigers, a slim 3.5 game division lead and demoralizing feelings...

Open Letter to Brian Cashman: Sign Usain Bolt

Dear Madam or Sir,      Supposedly, Brett Gardner is pondering a September comeback as pinch runner.  No. No-no-no-no. En. Oh. NO.  We'll kill the guy. He returns too soon, tries a headfirst slide, pops a gonad and it’s, "Hello Dr. Snipsnip." Forget Gards. Let him heal. Better idea: Sign Usain Bolt. No kidding. The world's fastest man.Wait, Bri, put...

Casey at the Bag: You can't spell McGehee without an extra E

Last night, we dodged a bullet. A hollow point. Casey McGehee - the newly shaven firstbaseman who is holding third for us until Arod's hand can once again grip a lobster fork - butchered a DP grounder, which nearly lead to a late inning collapse of Biblical proportions. Or at least the stuff of literary domain. ("That aint my style," said Casey. "E-5,"...

Yankees place Sabathia on DL with elbow stiffness

New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with stiffness in his left elbow. Yankees manager Joe Girardi made the announcement after their 5-2 victory over the host Toronto Blue Jays. Sabathia was seen earlier with ice on his throwing elbow.

Yankees Game 113: Nova Shines in Gem

Toronto Blue Jays: Hutchison won’t be fully ready until 2014

Before I get to anything else I got some rather unsettling news for Toronto Blue Jays fans out there.  Drew Hutchison underwent Tommy John surgery on Thursday and is reporting he won’t be at full strength until 2014.   I don’t about you, but I wouldn’t be surprise if the Blue Jays will check out the free agent market in the off-season, looking for a best starting...


At the onset of this season, actually a few weeks prior, I made a series of predictions.El Duque scoffed.The re-branded MUSTANG did not write off my incantations.I predicted:1.  Pineda would have arm surgery and not come north with the Yankees.2.  The " top prospect " we also got in the Pineda trade would never pitch for the Yankees and, moreover, was used kleenex as...
