FSU took on the New York Yankees in an exhibition game in Tampa. Here are some of the highlights from the Seminoles' day.

Yankees Primed to Swap Catchers for Infielders

The New York Yankees have five talented catchers in their organization: Brian McCann, Francisco Cervelli, Gary Sanchez, Austin Romine, and J.R. Murphy. Given the talent of McCann, that’s far more than they need. It’s an abundance of riches, but all the catchers need to do is look up at their infield, and they’ll see the opposite: no depth. While the team could survive...

Beltran, Ellsbury, and McCann Make Their Yankee Debut

The Yankees three big non-international free agent signings made their spring training debut for the Bronx bombers on Wednesday in the Yankees 6-5 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. No, we won’t chronicle every single spring training game, but it’s the first time that Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, and Jacoby Ellsbury donned their pinstripes against a fellow MLB team. All...

Free Agent Spotlight: Alfonso Soriano

Despite being 38 years old, Alfonso Soriano still has his power and still uses that ginormous Paul Bunyan size bat. He reminded Yankees fans why we loved him in the first place when he came back to the team in July. He came back with a bang collecting his 2000th career hit, which was a homer off of Justin Verlander on August 11th. On August 13th he hit two home runs and had a career...

Yankees Attend Johan Santana Throwing Session

I’m feeling pretty confident about the Yankees current pitching rotation. But it won’t last forever; Hiroki Kuroda will likely retire after this year, and if Michael Pineda or David Phelps don’t have solid seasons, they may not have a future in the Bronx either. So, even though the starting five is set for this year, it’s never too early to be looking ahead. And so...

New York Yankees need CC Sabathia to be their ace again

Photo courtesy ofKeith Allison via Flickr.The New York Yankees recently committed $155 million to Japanese star Masahiro Tanaka to be the future anchor of the rotation, but they need CC Sabathia to be the ace of this team in 2014.After a very disappointing 2013 season, Sabathia is slimmer and more importantly stronger than he’s been as a Yankee. The 6’7...

Why Brett Gardner’s Contract Extension is Deserved

Brett Gardner – New York Yankees- photo by: Keith Allison - The New York Yankees have locked up Brett Gardner to a four year extension after the 2014 season.  The extension buys out his last two arbitration years and first two years of free agency.  The extension in total is worth $52 million over those four years.  There has been shock from some and approval from others, but...

Player Profile #35: Carlos Beltran | OF | NYY

Carlos Beltran marks our second 37+ year old in our top 40. Who said baseball was a young man’s game? In fact, given his new surroundings, the argument can be made that 2014 could be one of his best seasons in recent memory. The argument begins — and basically ends — with his new home ballpark. There’s no secret that Yankee Stadium caters to left-handed hitters, especially...

Rivera surprised by Jeter retirement this year

Mariano Rivera never figured this would be Derek Jeter's final season. ''I didn't see this coming at all. I didn't see it,'' the retired New York Yankees reliever said Wednesday. ''For sure I was one of the guys that said they would have to pull his uniform off his body to take him out. But I was wrong, and this was a surprise to me.''...

Yankeetorial: Gammonites are calling the extension of Brett Gardner a sea change in Yankee philosophy; should we break out the party hats?

Throughout the boot camps and madrassas of the Yankiverse today, fans are bowing in the direction of Tampa, saying "Praise Hal-lah!" and giving thanks for Brett Gardner's 4-year contract extension. The hope? That this hath endeth the Yankees' disastrous policy of letting their stars hit free agency. It's the reason Robbie Cano is in Seattle.No Gammonite will...

Yankees Spring Training Game 3: Phelps prepares to compete

Pittsburgh Pirates 8 — New York Yankees 2 With the fifth spot in the starting rotation open to all comers, David Phelps made his Spring debut as he makes his showing for the opportunity. After getting the first out of the game, prospect outfielder Gregory Polanco hit a home run into right field to give the Pirates the early lead. In two innings, Phelps allowed one run on two hits...

Understanding Team Chemistry and Its Impact on Winning

“Now what is just or right is to be interpreted in the sense of ‘what is equal;’ and that which is right in the sense of being equal is to be considered with reference to the advantage of the state, and the common good of the citizens.” –Aristotle In the fall of my senior year at Villanova, I took a class in the Peace and Justice Department entitled “Baseball, Justice...

Scouting Yankees Prospect #14: Aaron Judge

The Yankees selected outfielder Aaron Judge in the first round of the 2013 MLB Draft out of Fresno State University. Despite signing too late and injuring his quad muscle, thus preventing him from making his official professional debut just yet, he offers a significant long-term ceiling.

Roger Clemens-Mike Piazza Broken Bat Fetches More Than $47K At Auction

The one enduring memory from the Subway Series just earned a former New York Yankees employee a nice chunk of change. The 2000 World Series wasn’t all that competitive on the field — the Yankees breezed past the crosstown Mets in five games — but every baseball fan remembers the incident that took place during Game 2, when Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens hurled a shard of Mike...
