Found March 29, 2013 on IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
Print. This. Out.1. April is strong. The scrap heap Yankees are long on scrap and short on - well - "heap," finishing that wordplay, despite lack of meaning. Lyle Overbay, Vernon Wells, Ben Francisco, Brennan Boesch and Cookie Rojas - (they coax him from retirement) - bring experienced professionalism and do something the team couldn't do last year: Hit with runners on base. Our starting pitching carries us. We're leading the league on March 31, and the Yankiverse coos like a fat pigeon. Jeter will be back soon, at full speed. The Tonight Show will be back in NYC. All will be right with the world.2. May is a disaster. This isn't a prediction. It's a fact of life. The Yankees always tank in May. The new car smell of the season fades, and the clubhouse hasn't settled into the long haul. This is the month when fissures show up in the concrete. Nunez throws away a few games, Gards runs into a wall, Cervelli's bat disappears, and the angry bloggers - led...

Fantasy Value Risers – Vernon Wells Has Relevance Again

The New York Yankees finalized the trade to acquire outfielder Vernon Wells from the Los Angeles Angels for two players.

Vernon Wells to the Yankees: Will it Be Worth the Investment?

Let's Be Clear

I have stayed away from spring training because that Pukilis person is still a Yankee.  And he remains unhurt.But a few things are emerging from the fog of spring:1.  The Yankees are too old.2.  They will continue to be beset with injuries.3.  The injuries will be sequential. 4.  The strategy of signing over-paid, slow, basically career-finished players, and making them very...
