Hiroki Kuroda (Photo credit: Wikipedia) When an MLB team’s roster features Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, CC Sabathia, Alex Rodriguez, Andy Pettitte and Robinson Cano getting overlooked is not uncommon. The New York Yankees roster, or current DL is littered with stars that have all rightfully earned their popularity over the years. But if I had to name the Yankees most valuable player this season, Hiroki Kuroda would be on the top of the list. Gazing at his numbers (stats courtesy of baseball-reference.com), Kuroda has actually been the Yankees most dependable starter since he joined the team in 2012.

Yankees: Teixeira causing an Overbay problem

No one hypothesized that the New York Yankees would be anything less than joyful and relieved to get back their wounded superstars. Mark Teixeira on the basepaths during a game between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles on August 26, 2011 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Of course, no one assumed this haphazard army of reserves would be winning enough games to be atop of the AL...

Whats luck got to do with it?

It’s May 18th and the Yankees are sitting atop the AL East which comes as a surprise to many for a plethora of reasons. No one thought the Yankees could continue their dominance for going on two decades, even if the Yankees were healthy. Right now, on the Yankee’s disabled list, sits names like Jeter, Rodriguez, Teixeira, Youkilis, Chamberlin and now Pettitte. So how are the...

Weird or what: On the same day, Scranton loses both "The Office" but Dellin Betances

Last night, Scranton lost it's biggest tourist attraction after Chien-Ming Wang.It was to Scranton as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is to Trenton. Much like most of the Yankee prospects who have moved through Moosic, it stayed there about three years too long. Nevertheless, like Alberto Gonzalez pitching in the ninth, you had to watch.So... you missed it, eh? You were...

Steinbrenner calls Yankees 'scrappy'

Saying, "I'm proud of them," Hal Steinbrenner praised the Yankees for the success the team has enjoyed thus far this season despite the team's many injuries.

Pettitte heads to DL

It’s almost becoming laughable. Another Yankee has landed on the disabled list – this time it’s Andy Pettitte’s turn, according to Mark Feinsand of the Daily News. Pettitte felt tightness in his trapezius muscle last night in the fifth inning and was removed from the game. Although the team isn’t worried about the injury and believe it to be minor, they are being careful...

New York Yankees Disable Andy Pettitte, Recall Vidal Nuno

The New York Yankees were forced into placing veteran left-handed starting pitcher Andy Pettitte on the 15-day disable list with a trapezius muscle strain. The injury, suffered Thursday against the Seattle Mariners, isn’t expected to be serious but Pettitte is no longer a spring chicken so his recovery time could take a tad longer than normal. Taking his place on the active roster...

So, your Yankees Reversed Cotton Candy Mower is Identified

The Yankees fan made famous yesterday when video of him eating cotton candy at a Yankees game went viral has been identified. He's Tabloid Witch Award honorable mention director/producer Michael... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

Yankees acquire Reid Brignac

The Yankees have made another move to add some depth at the big league level, as they have acquired utility man Reid Brignac from the Colorado Rockies in exchange for cash. Shortstop Alberto Gonzalez has been designated for assignment. Brignac, 27, represents versatility and a slight upgrade offensively from Gonzalez. In his career, Brignac has played shortstop, second base and...

Will the Montero-Pineda trade turn out to have been a huge transaction of nothingness?

Last night, I'm chewing on McChicken parts in a White Plains doofuss bar, where all the TV screens but one are tuned into the eternal Knicks and Rangers hell worlds - (too painful for my delicate system.) I'm watching the tube where YES - the Yankees version of Fox News Channel - flashes a graphic of Michael Pineda, the great beached whale of Tampa, and I try to imagine...

MLB hoping for large replay expansion in 2014

NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball appears set for a vast expansion of video review by umpires in 2014 and is examining whether all calls other than balls and strikes should be subject to instant replay. Replay has been in place for home run calls since August 2008. Commissioner Bud Selig initially wanted to add trap plays and fairfoul calls down the lines for 2013, but change was...

Girardi is at his best

When Joe Girardi took over the then Florida Marlins in 2006, little was expected of him. The team was young, inexperienced and projected to finish in dead last. Girardi guided them to a 78-84 record, en route to winning Manager of the Year for the National League. After having disagreements with management, as most people seem to have with the Marlins nowadays, Girardi was fired...

Yankees rumors: Robinson Cano extension talks continue

New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner told David Lennon of Newsday that the team has kept up contract talks with pending free agent Robinson Cano’s new agent, adding that the sides are “going to continue in the weeks to come to work through things and try to come to an agreement." Cano recently parted ways with agent Scott Boras in favor of a new agency headed...

Mariners 3, Yankees 2

On a night of injuries, the Seattle Mariners patched together just enough pitching to win. Andy Pettitte and Chris Stewart became the latest Yankees to get hurt, and emergency Seattle starter Hector Noesi pitched into the fifth inning in place of ailing Aaron Harang to lead the Mariners over New York 3-2 Thursday night. Pettitte (4-3) left after 4 2-3 innings because of an injured...

Aybar to Wynegar, Pujols to Smalley: The '13 Angels are the '83 Yankees

For a lost generation of Yankee fans, 1983 was Season Two in the 14-Year Barf - the hellish stretch of Tartabulls and Barfields that came between Thurman/Reggie and Bernie/Jeet. It was Iron Man II... the second Bush term... the marriage between Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney... except it lasted 161 games, instead of two weeks. I know what you're thinking: Shirley, you jest...

Lyle Overbay: The Biggest Yankees Surprise To Date

On Friday night, while Hiroki Kuroda was shutting down the Toronto Blue Jays, I had the opportunity to be the guest on Sportswire Entertainment's live broadcast. Vinnie Apicella, the show's host, started in with a couple routine questions-- "How did you get started?" "How about those Yankees?" Then he asked a question I had to think about, "Which...
