Even after adding right-handed-hitting outfielder Matt Diaz,
the New York Yankees continue to look for “right-handed punch” versus
left-handed pitchers, according to Joel Sherman of The New York Post.
Even after sign Matt Diaz to minor deal, #Yankees looking for RH punch v. LHs. Have no interest in Delmon Young, who is still fr agt (con)

Sherman adds that the Yankees “have no interest” in free
agent outfielder Delmon Young. Despite Young’s solid career numbers against
left-handed pitching, New York views him as a “horrible” outfielder. Beyond his
defense, the 27-year-old’s recent anti-Semitic rant makes him “untenable in
NYC,” according to Sherman.
Free agent Scott Hairston continues to be the most logical
fit for the Yankees, but his price may be increasing as several other teams are
said to be interested in the outfielder. While he’s been a career reserve for
the most part, interest in the 32-year-old has gone up following his strong
2012 campaign during which he hit .263/.299/.504 with 25 doubles and 20 home
runs for the New York Mets.

Projecting the Yankees future is like gauging an earthquake under the ocean: You see a seismic wave, then a period of quiet - and then the white foam tsunami. Well, 2013 is the seismic jolt. We start with a breaker of aging stars: Jeter, Pettitte, Mariano, Ichiro, Kuroda - even Youkilis, CC and A-Rod. Then comes a dead zone - around August, when the wheels fall off this geriatric...

Let me start by declaring that I have been a HUGE fan of linebacker Ray Lewis since the Baltimore Ravens beat my New York Giants in the Super Bowl XXXV back in 2000. (you can read my 2012 ALDS story about my encounter with Ray here or my past post titled Rarefied Ray.) To give you more of an idea of the adoration I have for this man, after watching the Ravens torch my Giants...

Was $99.99. Now $69.99! It's dropping below the ground. At this rate, by 2014, the price of Yankee Stadium grass will be less than Scott's Turf-Builder. (Thanks I'm Bill White)

Under the city lights of New York, Nick Swisher's personality often shined brighter than his performance. The smiling, laughing right fielder was largely overshadowed by the bigger names in the Yankees' lineup, but this winter, the Indians gave Swisher the star treatment and wooed him to Cleveland with a four-year deal. "Where we were going to be wanted and where we...
The off-season is winding down. Pitchers and catchers report to camp next month. The season starts in a little less than three months. Are you excited, Yankee fans?With the $189 million payroll threshold just a year away, I have been wondering just how excited this team's fans will be as it approaches that very un-Yankee-like deadline. In the decades before the dynasty of the...
