YES Network finally got around to putting together and airing a “Yankeeography’’ featuring Gene Michael.
Perhaps I’m a bit prejudiced about the production, but I think it is one of the best this outstanding series has aired.

Derek Jeter was spotted hobbling around Manhattan while wearing a bulky boot on his left foot to protect his surgically repaired left ankle.
There has been nothing but bad news for the New York Yankees this Spring. They currently have about $90 million on the disabled list, and they really aren’t sure when any of them are coming back. One of those players is Michael Pineda, the prized haul from last year’s offseason trade with the Seattle Mariners. You may remember that Pineda never made one appearance with the Yankees...
In March, when the Retrieval Empire cashed in its Raleigh Coupons and signed Lyle Overbay, the wheels in every blogsmith's mind began to rotate.

The best part was that...

The oldest; the average age is 31.9 years.
A DL (disabled list) that reads like an All-Star roster – Jeter, A-Rod, Grandy, Tex, Youks, Cervelli, Nova, and Pineda.
Exceeding. This team was projected to fall down, not rise up.

Infielder Corban Joseph has been recalled from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to take the roster spot of veteran Kevin Youkilis who was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to April 28th. Joseph brings with him a solid, but unspectacular bat.

Injuries are nothing new for Joba, who has seen his fair share...
The New York Yankees made a minor move, acquiring infielder Chris Nelson from the Colorado Rockies who had recently been designated for assignment. Colorado will receive either cash or a player to be named later. He is most likely a stop-gap for Kevin Youkilis who just went on the disabled list. Once the Yankees roster is healthy, Nelson can become more of a utility player if they...
