New York Yankees signing Brian Roberts was desperate move

Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports The New York Yankees finally signed a true second baseman, although the signing was a poor attempt to fill the huge cleats of the recently departed Robinson Cano. Monday it was reported the Yankees signed 36-year-old, and often injured, Brian Roberts to a 1-year deal worth $2 million plus incentives. Roberts is a 13-year veteran, having played his...

Like so many, Carlos Beltran has always wanted to be a Yankee

Carlos Beltran was formally introduced as a Yankee this morning and just as many have in the past, he gushed over the opportunity to play for the only team that really matters in New York. “I grew up being a Yankee fan. I grew up being a Bernie Williams fan,” Beltran said at today’s introductory press conference. “As a player, and first of all as a fan, I used to...

Cashman hopeful Pineda will help fill still-hazy rotation

Whether Masahiro Tanaka is coming to Major League Baseball or not, and the latest reports out of Japan indicate he will be forced to stay home, the Yankees are looking for a considerable contribution to the rotation from Michael Pineda.

Carlos Beltran was hurt by Mets’ smear campaign over Walter Reed issue

Carlos Beltran was introduced on Friday as one of the newest members of the New York Yankees and, during his press conference, he addressed one of his disappointing moments as a member of the city’s other baseball team. Beltran spent six and a half largely unappreciated seasons with the Mets. His time was marred by […]

Kevin Youkilis Headed for Japan

Well, I have to say that I'm really glad Kevin Youkilis' tenure with the New York Yankees was short-lived. Maybe now that it's over, he can grow back his goatee. The baby face didn't really suit him. We won't be seeing Youk at all next season as he's now headed for Japan, to play for the Rakuten Golden Eagles alongside sensation Masahiro Tanaka—who...

Beltran Still Bitter Towards Mets Brass

Speaking to reporters after the press conference at Yankee Stadium on Friday, Carlos Beltran was still upset with the Mets and for the first time he spoke publicly about his time with them. “All the controversy about the Walter Reed,” Beltran said. “The knee — the organization trying to put me as a player that I was a ‘bad apple.’ I was this.

Ken Rosenthal: Yankees should consider signing Bronson Arroyo

The collapsing market for Bronson Arroyo has led some to believe the Reds may actually have a shot at re-signing the veteran right-hander. However, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports writes that perhaps the New York Yankees should take a close look at adding Arroyo to their fold. One of the reasons Rosenthal believes so is that former Reds strength and conditioning coach Matt Krause has...

Plan B

Reynolds Would Provide Right-Handed Thunder There wasn’t much thought when the New York Yankees signed third baseman/first baseman Mark Reynolds this past August after he was released by the Cleveland Indians. Reynolds was once again providing middle of the road power numbers for the Indians, but he just didn’t seem to be a good fit. If the Tribe was under the impression that...
