The New York Yankees act like they're in jail. They're not.
They could sign free-agent right-hander Kyle Lohse and then trade either right-hander Ivan Nova or right-hander David Phelps for the offense they so desperately need.
General manager Brian Cashman, however, wants no part of Lohse.
"I don't think it would make any sense whatsoever," Cashman said. "We have all of our pitching intact. Our problem is not our pitching. Pitching is our strength."
The Yankees have six starters: Lefties CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte and righties Hiroki Kuroda, Phil Hughes, Nova and Phelps. A seventh possibility, righty Michael Pineda, is recovering well from shoulder surgery, Cashman said.
Lohse, though, could be a solution -- not a perfect solution, but one that would help the Yankees escape their current predicament more than the Ben Franciscos and Brennan Boesches of the world ever will.
Of course, signing Lohse would require two leaps of faith -- one, that ...

The New York Yankees recently added free agent Brennan Boesch
to bolster the competition in the outfield, and the former Detroit Tigers outfielder

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman says shortstop Derek Jeter will play only in minor league spring training games for the rest of spring training.
The move could cut short how much time Jeter would miss if he starts the season on the 15-day disabled list. By not playing in major league exhibitions, the Yankees want to be able to backdate Jeter's start time on the...
Was at Vision Expo East 2013 at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan over the weekend and Bernie Williams of the New York Yankees was there taking pictures and signing autographs. The fiance was tempted to wait online for a picture but everybody and their mother was in line and we actually had some business to attend to. Oh well. It would've been fun...but at least we got to...
CLEARWATER, Fla. — Derek Jeter was removed from New York’s lineup against the Phillies on Tuesday for “precautionary” reasons because his surgically repaired left ankle feels “stiff.” He said he might be able to play Wednesday and doesn’t consider this a setback.
“I’m not concerned because I was told this was going to happen,” Jeter said. “From everything I’ve...
While spring training isn’t the time to get up in arms over injuries or players recovering from them, New York Yankees living legend Derek Jeter has been scratched from today’s lineup because of stiffness in his left ankle.
Via USA Today:
New York manager Joe Girardi said that Jeter was flexing the ankle a lot during batting practice. Jeter eventually went to trainer Steve Donohue...
A familiar face may soon be rejoining the Yankees.
According to Trenton Thunder beat writer Josh Norris, former Yankee Chien-Ming Wang was visible at the Yankees’ spring training complex down in Tampa, Fla. this morning. However, Wang has not signed a contract with the team just yet. The Yankees had scouted Wang in the WBC, where he pitched well for his native Taiwan, going 1-0...

Hannah Davis grew up in Saint Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. Must have been nice to have warm sun and beaches instead of ice and slush all the time.

AL East At A Glance
New York Yankees: A lot of writers and analysts are picking the Yankees to finish third, and in the most wide open division in baseball, it’s certainly a possibility. The injury to Curtis Granderson will keep him out till May, Mark Teixeira’s injury could possibly require season-ending surgery, and Alex Rodriguez will be out till the All Star break at best...
It seems like just yesterday the entire nation was in mourning as result of the horrific events that occured in Newtown, CT. Here we are a few months later and the events that occurred in December are still fresh in the public's mind. In a league wide effort to help support those who were affected by the shooting, MLB commissioner Bud Selig has decided that all 30 teams will...
Achieving parity in sports is a constant balancing act, and the governing rules which (attempt t0) create such a level playing field are like a pendulum, swinging back and forth in either direction. That all being said, the pendulum governing Major League Baseball’s free agents has swung too far against the players, and with Kyle Lohse serving as a prime example, need to be amended...
