Giancarlo Stanton a Yankee? Maybe.
The latest rumor floating around the MLB hot stove is that the New York Yankees are about to immerse in a possible trade with the Miami Marlins to get right fielder Giancarlo Stanton.
Stanton is one of the last Marlins left after the fire sale, which sent high-priced stars infielder Hanley Ramirez to the Dodgers; RP Heath Bell to the Diamondbacks; and most recently SS Jose Reyes, SP Josh Johnson and SP Mark Buehrle to the Blue Jays.
To say the Marlins first season in a new stadium in Miami was a disaster is being polite.
So in turn the team’s hothead owner, Jeffrey Loria has dismantled the entire organization. So logically moving Stanton would only make sense for the reckless owner to do; and teams started calling immediately.
And according to sources, Loria’s response about acquiring Stanton was that he was not available…. yet.
Yet, unfortunately, could mean another season or maybe two for Stanton in Miami unless Loria gets enticed.
See, Stanton i...

The New York Yankees are in serious contract negotiations with veteran left-hander Andy Pettitte for a one-year deal worth $11 million, reports the New York Post.
Pettitte turned down a Yankees offer worth $10 million last January. But when he decided to un-retire in March the Yankees offered him $2.5 million and he took it.

While Ichiro Suzuki would like to remain in pinstripes and the New York Yankees would welcome the outfielder back, a deal has not been completed yet. Contrary to earlier reports, Ichiro and the Yankees have not agreed on a one-year deal worth $5 million. The news of a deal not being done yet comes from Sweeny Murti of WFAN.
Ichrio was traded to the Yankees prior to the trade deadline...
Yesterday, we avoided arbitration with Eli Whiteside -- NYC's new Eli -- who we fished off the scrap heap. We signed the guy to a $625,000 contract, a lot of squid for somebody who hits .125 lifetime. Oh, and he's 33!That gives us the following catchers:Austin Romine (the eternal prospect) Frankie Cervelli (the eternal overlooked)Chris Stewart (the eternal backup)Eli Whiteside...
A person familiar with the negotiations says Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees are nearing agreement on a one-year contract in the range of $10 million to $12 million.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because talks are ongoing.
Pettitte, who turns 41 in June, retired after the 2010 season and then decided to come back this year and signed a contract guaranteeing...
Although he’s drawn “a lot of interest” from other teams,
free agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is waiting to see if the New York Yankees
want to bring him back before deciding where he’s going to play next season,
reports George A. King III of The New York Post.
“They are going after pitching first which is what the
Yankees normally do,’’ Tony Attanasio...
Taking a break from football and basketball and other fall sports - Looks like the New York Yankees will sign not only Pettitte but Mariano Rivera and Hiroki Kuroda for the 2013 season. I love Pettitte and I thought he did well when he wasn't injured last season, so I'm always happy whenever he returns. Mariano will be 43 but as a closer, age shouldn't be too much of...
The New York Yankees are optimistic they can work out deals for veteran lefty Andy Pettitte and closer Mariano Rivera in the coming week, sources told Ken Rosenthal.
The deal for Pettitte would likely be for one year and in excess of $10 million. Rivera would command more, Rosenthal tweeted.
Pettitte, 40, made 12 starts for the Yankees last season, going 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA after...
These are the type of posts I absolutely dread writing. Projections, predictions, prognostication, life-line reading, forecasting, reading the smoke from a burned sacrifice; they all have their place, but often rely so heavily on things out of personal control, or flat out guessing, that indulging in them is largely a time wasting exercise. You can [...]
As we wait for the right-field situation to resolve itself, I frequently find myself frustrated that there is no Babe DiMaggio ready to take over the position from Nick Swisher — or ready to take over any other position, for that matter. Now, I know that Babe DiMaggio types are hard to come by, but [...]
While the New York Yankees remain the favorites to sign Russell Martin, they are not the only team pursuing him.
The free-agent catcher also is drawing significant interest from the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners and Pittsburgh Pirates, according to major-league sources.
The Rangers, in particular, could pose a threat to the Yankees, who intend to be under the $189 million...
Marlins fans are predictably angry about the salary dump that owner Jeffrey Loria executed when he traded every good player the Marlins had to the Blue Jays. Their anger is rooted not only in the fact that the Marlins will most likely suck for a good little while, but also because Loria hit up tax payers in funding his new luxurious stadium only to trade away any chance of fielding...
