Can the Yankees 1-3 start be attributed to Derek Jeter taking up a roster spot? New York needs a youth movement.

Derek Jeter has been an important part of the New York Yankees organization for the last 18 seasons. He could be one of those players who doesn’t know when it is time to get out. Jeter has yet to play a game in the 2013 season and it is yet to be determined when he will be able to play. Now reports coming out of New York have Yankees manager Joe Girardi saying Jeter needs a mini...

Lyle Overbay Calls Beating Red Sox ‘More Satisfying for Me Than Anything Else’ As Yankees Win

Lyle Overbay was a simple cut at the end of Red Sox’ spring training, an extra player as the team trimmed its ranks to 25 for Opening Day. That’s how the Red Sox probably see it, at least, but for Overbay, who was scooped up by the Yankees to start at first base, it was a little more than that. Overbay, 36, is trying to prove that he still can play at a big league level, and...
