Owie Owie Owie 10) He's going to miss April, which given his historical stats from the month, could be a net gain 9) Teix was hurt swinging a bat, which might not be the best sign going forward 8) Between this, the Curtis Granderson injury and the A-Rod issues, GM Brian Cashman's parachuting problem is starting to make more sense 7) I'm bummed out by this, because it really kills the chance for someone to overpay for him at auction like every year 6) Sadly, this just ensures that "Underdog Yankees Valiant Comeback" is somehow going to be a story 5) If this somehow leads to rehiring Jason Giambi, Johnny Damon, Nick Johnson or John Olerud, that would be thoroughly acceptable, just so long as they don't give a job to someone young and unknown 4) Cashman says this is not the time of year to make any significant moves, because he already knows that this team is a .500 third-place team in baseball's toughest division, with or without it's wildly ov...

Time for Brian Cashman to grow up

When Yankees GM Brian Cashman started his "look at me, I'm rappelling" nonsense a few years ago, I got hate mail from his minions for daring to criticize his immaturity. Apparently, if you act like a complete knucklehead, risking your life and health, but it's for charity, it's perfectly acceptable to some people. I wondered then about what would happen if something...

For Brian Crashman, the man who traded Jesus and said no to Johnny, running the Yankees must be a tedious, boring nightmare

If Brian Cashman was a player, the Yankees would have traded him by now. One too many back page headlines, and one too many disastrous deals. And Monday would have been the final straw.  The guy who questioned Joba Chamberlain’s decision to jump on a trampoline with his son just snapped his leg like Joe Theisman while leaping from a plane. The guy who said no to a second act of...

Video from Brian Cashman's skydive

We told you guys yesterday that Yankees GM Brian Cashman went skydiving outside of Miami. He went up not once, but twice and ended up severely injuring his ankle on the second jump. The NY Post accompanied Cashman on the flight and filmed the first jump. Unfortunately they didn’t release video of the second jump so there is no footage (yet) of Cashman’s bone poking through the...

Dilemma in the Bronx? Tough decision for Girardi in center

Yankees Manager Joe Girardi has told the media that Curtis Granderson will be inserted as the starting center fielder for the Bronx Bombers upon his return to the team and that Brett Gardner will be the starting left fielder come Opening Day.

The cost of winning at all costs: Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez

Brian Cashman delivered the quote of the day

We all know the New York Yankees are in a heap of trouble heading into the regular season. Mark Teixeira is headed towards the DL, joining Curtis Granderson.

Kevin Youkilis is big new face in the infield, and he could be moved over to first base if the Yankees choose to pick up...

Smartass ESPN Intern Fired For This Scoring Fail & More Screencapping Fun!
