Found October 26, 2012 on The Detroit Sports Site:
It’s not a feat that’s accomplished much, but the 1996 New York Yankees were in fact the last team to rally from what looked like a catastrophic 0-2 deficit to win the World Series. So, yes Detroit, this can happen. … Continue reading →

Pretend you are Yankees GM Brian Cashman who would you keep

Can you pretend you are Yankees GM Brian Cashman for a second?  Brian Cashman (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Ok not literally, but say you had his job and you were just named the new GM for the New York Yankees. And your first order of business is deciding is deciding who gets to live another day in pinstripes, and who will get handed their walking papers. A few things to keep in mind...
CALL IN A FAVOR

Girardi protected A-Rod's feelings

In order to not bruise his slugging superstar's already-deflated ego, Joe Girardi reportedly called the Yankee Stadium PA announcer to ask him to not mention Alex Rodirguez's name when he was being pinch-hit for.

Should Swisher join Grandyman and get some new Prada frames?

The official Yankiverse rumor line seems to be that Nick Swisher is gone from the Tankees. I'll believe it when I see it.  Swish has always been a likeable, bi-polar West Virginia mope who drank the Kool-Aid of Gotham like mother's milk, and set himself up for a post-baseball career as a sitcom walk-on, card show lugnut or ESPN smiling caballero.  He won't be happy...
END OF THE ROAD?

Mariano Rivera unsure about future

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that the legendary closer "doesn’t know what he is doing yet" as it relates to whether or not he'll return next season. 

Letter to the Editor: Rage, rage, rage against the storm

The New York PostOctober 21, 2012 SundayDear EditorI have never been more embarrassed in my life to be a Yankees fan. I can only hope the Steinbrenners and Randy Levine issue a public apology to the fans, because we're owed one. We're also owed a new manager, new hitting coach (goodbye Kevin Long!), and a large chunk of new players. This postseason has been a complete...

Report: Mariano Rivera Considering Retirement Over Return to Yankees in 2013

Mariano Rivera vowed some months ago that despite tearing his ACL, he would return to pitch again in the major leagues. Now, it appears that he's not so sure. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman spoke with ESPN.com's Andrew Marchand on Friday, and he indicated that Rivera still hasn't decided on his future. "He wasn't certain on what he is...

Joe Girardi expects Alex Rodriguez to be his starting third baseman for the Yankees next season

While rumors began to swirl that the Yankees were discussing a trade with the Marlins involving Alex Rodriguez, manager Joe Girardi was silent. Girardi was also silent in the aftermath of Rodriguez’s benching, as well as his extracurricular activities while in the dugout. But in his season ending press conference Girardi told reporters that despite the benching and the rumors,...

Report: Girardi spared A-Rod's feelings

It's no secret that Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily throughout the 2012 postseason, but the common refrain was that at least he was saying the right things and acting like a good teammate amid all the attention. At least, of course, until that little incident where A-Rod apparently hit on a fan behind the Yankees' dugout, which called into question his focus and intensity...

Girardi called press box to save A-Rod from embarrassment

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi requested that the team's public address announcer not mention Alex Rodriguez's name when he was pinch-hit for during the American League Championship series, according to CBSSports.com. Typically, announcements include the pinch hitter and the player he is replacing in the lineup. Girardi reportedly called the press box when Eric...

Yankeetorial: Mariano is having second thoughts? Good.

I know this is blaspheme, but for once, let's not be cheerful and optimistic: Does anybody really expect Mariano Rivera to come back in 2013 and pitch an entire season at the level that befits his career? Because I sure don't. I think there's a better chance of Ann Coulter winning a sportsmanship medal at the Special Olympics. When Mariano shredded his knee last spring...

Ichiro wants to stay in NY

Joel Sherman of the New York Post is reporting that Ichiro Suzuki wants to continue playing for the New York Yankees. I hope this doesn’tContinue Reading »
