New York Yankees: 10 crazy predictions you want to read

Is the 2012 season going to be CRAZY in the Bronx? Am I crazy? Yes, I am completely out of my mind. Is this realistic? In the words of Yankee skipper Joe Girardi, “I should not say never, but no, no, no.”   Still, even though not one of these 10 predictions will actually come true, there is nothing wrong with having a little fun in the midst of Spring Training. Please note…...

Season Previews: New York Yankees

With Spring Training well underway, it's time for one of our favorite things in all the world: Season Previews. Five years ago, they began as a semi-serious analysis and ended up as half-assed haiku. We're just gonna go with what we know. Love them or hate them, we've chosen to begin our preview of the American League East with the 2012 New York Yankees. Kuroda, Phil...

Yankees Firmed Up Staff When Andy Pettitte

Andy Pettitte signed to a minor league deal with the Yankees.  I guess the Yankees cause mass hysteria, so I shouldn’t have been surprised by how many people asked me if they should pick him, but, alas, you still surprised me, you.  In anything shallower than a 10 team AL-Only league, I wouldn’t go near him.  He wasn’t even that good his last few years of pitching, so I...

It's tough to know just when to go: nice Newsday article on Andy Pettitte's return

As y'all are aware, Andy Pettitte is officially un-retiring today from the New York Yankees.

Michael Kay Reacts to Andy Pettitte’s Prodigal Return

*Special cap tip to the one and only Prince of New York, whose new book, Paul Lebowitz’s 2012 Baseball Guide, (a must-have for any serious baseball fan or fantasy baseball junkie) has just come out on Kindle. Don’t do any baseball drafts until you’ve read this tome. It’s a tradition I’ve come to love. Goes well with beer. Don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right. Peace, Jeff...
