Found March 23, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The New York Yankees continue to actively pursue help at first and third base, according to Andy Martino of The New York Daily News. This is so obvious it's hardly worth saying, but also was told that #Yankees still actively seeking 1B and 3B help. — Andy Martino (@MartinoNYDN) March 21, 2013 Martino terms this news “obvious,” as the Yankees have been on the hunt for corner infielders since learning Mark Teixeira would have to start the season on the disabled list. To make matters worse for New York, they will also begin the year without third baseman Alex Rodriguez and outfielder Curtis Granderson. When the news of Teixeira’s injury was first released, the Yankees were tied to several veteran corner infielders – including free agents Scott Rolen and Derrek Lee and even former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones. However, there were no takers, and the Yankees continue their search. Kevin Youkilis provides the Yankees with some flexibility when it comes to acquiring a corner infielder, as the offseason acquisition can man both first and third base. They figure to scour the market for out-of-option players and others at risk of not breaking camp with their current teams as Opening Day approaches.

Yankees Universe you need to read this about Wang

English: Wang in bullpen 2 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) It doesn’t take much to impress the New York Yankees these days, as Chien-Ming Wang just proved inking a one-year minor league deal with the team.

The horror, Mr. Cash, the horror: Jeter is no longer answering questions, Mariano is having migraines, Andy’s getting whacked, and the Yankee boat drifts ever deeper into the heart of darkness .

The Yankees say Jeter might miss opening day, but he hasn’t ruled it out. The team expects...

Has Brian Cashman lost his mind?

I haven't squawked much lately because I don't really want to be a Swanny one-note, writing nothing but gloom and doom about the state of the Yankees. Especially when it comes to the madness of Brian Cashman. He is a terrible general manager, but our lousy front office seems to be fine with no matter what he does. And the media gives Cashman a pass, too -- more than they...

Jeter to start 2013 on DL for Yankees?

10 Bold Predictions for 2013: Yoenis Cespedes will get more MVP votes than Robinson Cano

Is Cano or Cespedes going to have the better year? Robinson Cano has been one of the best hitters in baseball over past several years.  His three year averages:  .311/.370/.539, 30 HR, 107 RBI, 104 runs, and 5 sB.  The 30/100/100 mark is a milestone and when someone averages that over three years in an increasingly pitching dominated era, it’s incredible.  He has finished 3rd...
