We are all a fan of some team. Even the self-proclaimed objective journalists grew up rooting for someone. It’s simple human nature. I’m an Angels fan, and as such I don’t have a great deal of love for the Yankees. So it would make sense that I love the Vernon Wells trade. It removes an unproductive player from my favorite team and inserts him into the lineup...
TEMPE, Ariz. The Angels finalized their trade of Vernon Wells to the New York Yankees on Tuesday after the veteran outfielder passed a physical and the commissioners office approved the cash being exchanged in the deal.
The Angels will pay 28.1 million of the remaining 42 million on Wells contract, which runs through 2014, meaning the Yankees will pick up 13.9 million of the deal...

ANAHEIM, CA – The Angels Tuesday traded outfielder Vernon Wells to the New York Yankees in exchange for outfielder Exicardo Cayones, LHP Kramer Sneed and cash considerations. Today’s transaction was announced by General Manager Jerry Dipoto.
Cayones, 21, spent the 2012 season playing for New York’s Single-A Staten Island...
On his first day with the New York Yankees, Vernon Wells recalled a game in the International League more than a decade ago and he saw Darryl Strawberry in uniform for the opposition.
''I remember the first time I played the Triple-A Yankees, when I was 20 years old,'' he said Tuesday. ''It was the first that I actually got goosebumps playing against another...
Vernon Wells is definitely excited about joining the New York Yankees.
Within two hours of Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi reporting the veteran outfielder , currently with the Los Angeles Angels, in on the verge of a deal to land in the Bronx as a new member of the Yankees, Wells tweeted:
Thankful and Blessed!

Vernon Wells is gone but he won't be forgotten, though most of us probably want to. In the interest of fairness to a player who was universally maligned from almost the exact second he was acquired, let's take an exhaustive look at the highlights of his Angel career:
June 28th, 2011 against the Nationals - Vernon went 4-for-5 with a homer, a double, three runs scored...
Desperate times calls for desperate measures, and make no mistakes about it, this is a move of desperation by the New York Yankees.
Earlier, we reported that Yankees shortstop and captain Derek Jeter, will almost certainly miss the beginning of the season because he has yet to fully recover from a broken ankle he suffered in the postseason late last year.
The Bronx Bombers are...
I’ve already speculated that, when Brian Cashman broke his ankle skydiving March 4, that maybe he also unknowingly hit his head, because some of his moves and intentions this spring have been, well, questionable, if not downright nuts.
After the Yankees general manager acquired Angels outfielder Vernon Wells on Monday, I’m almost sure Cashman must’ve hit his head.
I can’t remember the last time a front office admitted to actually being desperate. Even if everybody knows that the front office is desperate, the front office has a vested interest in issuing denials, since no one wants to be taken advantage of. Brian Cashman and the Yankees, I’m sure, would say they haven’t been desperate lately, even despite all the Yankees’ injuries...
When it comes to sports, what every owner looks for is repeat business. And, if you want repeat business, “loyalty” is king. Through good times and bad, the stronger your fan loyalty, the better off you are.
So, with Opening Day this Sunday, Brand Keys has released their 21st annual report, the Brand Keys 2013 Sports Fan Loyalty Index. Even with a roster that’s old as dirt...
In December - as Yankee fans watched Russell Martin, Nick Swisher and Rafael Soriano march toward the exit; as Torii Hunter, Josh Hamilton and Melky Cabrera knocked on the door, without so much as a response - Isiah Cashman uttered the famous new policy of the Steinbrother era: "Beggars can't be choosers."Theoretically, it meant the sons of the owner were instituting...
