Possible utility role for Nunez

Yankees GM Brian Cashman, in an interview with ESPN New York, has stated that Eduardo Nunez will be the team’s utility guy, should he make the big league team out of Spring Training. However, Nunez was never considered a replacement for A-Rod, who will undergo hip surgery on Jan. 16. Earlier this winter, and even going back to last season, Cashman was adamant about keeping Nunez...

"Let Cano Spread His Wings and Fly" -- Huh?

Robinson Cano's impending contract extension or free agency, has been a recurring theme in the minds of Yankees fans over the past year, or so. A rising number of Yankees fans are growing tired of Cano's salary demands, with thoughts akin to: if he doesn't want to be a Yankee at all costs, let him go. It's unclear why an audible amount of Yankees fans can't appreciate...

Hal Steinbrenner says Yankees will spend more if team isn't 'championship-caliber'

Hal Steinbrenner has made it clear that the New York Yankees are steadfast in getting the team's payroll under $189 million by the 2014 season — even if it means not re-signing valuable Yankees players and passing on desirable high-profile free agents. Much to the chagrin of longtime Bronx Bomber fans, Hal and his brother Hank are committed to showing everyone these ain...

Patience a virtue for Yanks, Nats

Hal Steinbrenner and the Yankees aren’t finished this offseason. Even though Spring Training is right around the corner, Steinbrenner assured the fans that the team is not done making moves and that they’ve “got some work to do.” While sticking to the plan of getting below payroll for 2014, Steinbrenner also added that he would only let that happen if he felt the team was...

Hal: If the 2013 team collapses (like a lot of people think it will), the Yankees will try to spend their way out of it (like his father always did)

Hal Steinbrenner, aka "the smarter one," took to the conference call podium yesterday to try and defuse a growing hostility within the Yankiverse, a fan base that sees the family ownership as more interested in profits than pennants. He said it just aint so. The vaunted $189 million payroll - which the Steinbros have pitched as the Prime Directive for 2014 - is not so all...

Farewell to Marcus Thames the Player

The Yankees take care of their own. Or something. Former Yankees, Rangers, Yankees (again), and Dodgers outfielder and designated hitter Marcus Thames has apparently retired, as the High-A Tampa Yankees announced that he will be their hitting coach in 2013. Thames was never a superstar. He was not even everyday player over even one full season in the majors, as the most plate appearances...

A-Rod likely back after All-Star break

Alex Rodriguez's surgeon says the New York Yankees third baseman probably will be ready to return to the field after the All-Star break. ''It would be great if he returns faster. Possible that it would take longer,'' Dr. Bryan Kelly of the Hospital for Special Surgery said Tuesday. Kelly is scheduled to operate Jan. 16 on the 37-year-old's left hip, which...
