Good morning, folks! Day three is underway from Nashville, and we’re covering all the action on a minute-by-minute basis at BronxPinstripes.com.
8:10 AM: Last night, Brian Cashman met with the media and revealed that he has spoken to the agent for at least five separate players – Ichiro Suzuki, Raul Ibanez, Eric Chavez, Kevin Youkilis, and A.J. Pierzynski. There was no mention of Jeff Keppinger, who the Yankees reportedly have been aggressively pursuing.
Cashman’s quotes seem to corroborate that the Yankees were likely the mystery team that had a deal in place for Asdrubal Cabrera, only to have it fall apart when the Indians pushed too hard for a third prospect in addition to a major league pitcher.
BEST OF MAXIM
WHO'S THE BOSS?
Yankees GM Brian Cashman reportedly lacked the authority to make any offers to free agents at the winter meetings without consulting team ownership first.
BACK ON THE PROWL
Yankees shortstop and renowned ladykiller Derek Jeter allegedly was spotted with swimsuit model Hannah Davis, an old flame, in a New York hotel bar on Monday night.
Derek Eater? Well that didn’t last very long.
Yankee fans woke up on Friday morning to a horrifying sight, Derek Jeter significantly overweight on the back page of the New York Post. The Post’s report stated that Jeter had “turned to the fork” and lost control of his weight during rehab on his injured left ankle.
The report, however, was proven false when MLB Network tweeted...
Derek Jeter says his surgically repaired left ankle feels good and he expects to be the New York Yankees' starting shortstop on opening day.
Jeter was at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night to surprise more than 500 children from New York City at his Turn 2 Foundation's holiday party. It was his first public visit to the Bronx since having surgery in late October to repair...
Shopworn, and juiceless, 10-time Silver Slugger Award winner Alex Rodriguez will undergo surgery on his left hip and likely won’t return to the diamond until roughly the All-Star break. The 37-year-old Rodriguez, who acquired the bynames “A-Fraud” and ******** Tits” … Continue reading →
Unfortunately, the best news to come out of the winter meetings so far is that Derek Jeter believes he should be ready for Opening Day. Jeter, 38, who was criticized last week for being "out of shape" after a picture was taken of him walking down the street with a bit of a gut, says he feels good and that he is moving around a lot better after recovering from ankle surgery...
Today the news broke of the need for New York Yankees 3B Alex Rodriguez to undergo surgery for a torn labrum in his left hip that will keep him out of action for 4-6 months after he has the operation in early January. Initially, thoughts would involve the Yankees staying in house, perhaps using Eduardo Nunez there until A-Rod is ready. A logical platoon with Nunez...
The uniform Don Larsen was wearing when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history has sold for $756,000.
The former New York Yankees' right-hander achieved perfection in Game 5 of the 1956 Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The pinstriped uniform with No. 18 on the back received 22 bids in an online auction on Steinersports.com. The winning bidder was not identified...
Curtis Granderson was among many New York Yankees players who struggled in the postseason this past year. One reason could have been his eye sight. After the season ended, Granderson was sent to doctors to evaluate his eyes in hopes that the 31-year old center fielder could return to form for 2013. New York was confident enough in him that they picked up his option, giving...
In hour 2 of The Warning Track Karen and Mike talking MLB Winter Meetings and the New York Yankees can add third baseman to the Christmas wish list with A-Rod having hip surgery. Who are they targeting in this thin market?
Dickey on the trade market, who can the Mets expect to get in return?

The third base market continues to clear. Eric Chavez is now off the market, as the Diamondbacks signed the veteran to a one-year, $3 million deal Wednesday.
As the contract suggests, Chavez is unlikely to be a full-time player in Arizona. However, given the myriad struggles the club experienced at third base last season, we can expect Chavez to play a significant role. He hit .281...
