No one hypothesized that the New York Yankees would be anything less than joyful and relieved to get back their wounded superstars.

You can check out available MLB future odds to see that the Yankees are now one of the favorites to win the 2013 World Series, a spot this team was far from just six weeks ago. Everyone getting this team wrong doesn’t change the fact the Yankees are now in a pickle. Some might even call it a catch-22, as their pricey stars start getting healthy. Curtis Granderson came off the DL earlier this week, which gives skipper Joe Girardi some relief in the outfield. Granderson has played his whole career in centerfield but was started in left. This essentially would put Vernon Wells out of a job he has d...

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...

Derek Jeter's amazing Lego portrait

You may have seen a couple of days ago the matchstick made Yankee Stadium. That took years to build and is pretty amazing, especially as to how detailed it was. Well, we have already seen something that comes pretty close to topping it. A Derek Jeter portrait that is simply amazing, as it is made entirely out of Legos. The New York Yankees shortstop has never looked as clutch as...

Yankees call up INF David Adams, cut Chris Nelson

The New York Yankees have selected the contract of infielder David Adams from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and they designated third baseman Chris Nelson for assignment two weeks after acquiring him. Adams was set to make his major league debut on his 26th birthday, starting at third base and batting sixth against Seattle on Wednesday night. Manager Joe Girardi says the 2008...

Yankees: Secret stopper Kuroda

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...

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.

Betances gets the call

Photo courtesy of milb.com The Yankees have called up righty pitcher Dellin Betances to add another arm to the pen, according to Daniel Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal. No corresponding move has been made yet, but chances are Brett Marshall will be sent down since he threw over 100 pitches last night in mop-up duty. Betances, 25, was once considered one of the Yankees’ top...

Yankees place Andy Pettitte on DL

New York Yankees left-handed starting pitcher Andy Pettitte exited his last start due to injury, and the club placed him on the 15-day disabled list yesterday with a strained left trapezius muscle, according to Kieran Darcy of ESPN New York. General manager Brian Cashman told reporters that the team doesn’t consider the upper shoulder/back injury to be “overly serious...

Hey, Joba ‘the Hut’, keep your mouth shut

For those of you who haven’t already heard the news, Yankees relief pitcher Joba Chamberlain told Yankees closer Mariano Rivera to never “shush” him again. The remark came in the middle of an interview Mo was having with some of the media after Friday’s game against the Kansas City Royals. Chamberlain apparently got so loud, that Mo had to tell him to keep his voice down...

The New York Yankees are little more than middling contenders without Andy Pettitte

After leaving in the fifth inning of a 3-2 loss to the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night in New York, borderline Hall of Fame Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte was sent to the 15-day disabled list with a strained trapezius muscle. A three-time All-Star who has captured five crowns in pinstripes, the 6-foot-5, 225 pound Pettitte (4-3, 3.83 ERA) is one of the primary reasons New York...

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...

Nick Saban Calls ‘The Devil Himself’ Comments From Florida Coach ‘Terribly Disappointing’

The Yankees may embrace their Evil Empire nickname, but Nick Saban is not enjoying being called “the devil himself.” Florida offensive line coach Tim Davis whipped out that phrasing at a recent booster meeting, the second time that an SEC-affiliated coach has compared Saban to Lucifer himself. Saban responded Thursday. “It really is a little terribly disappointing,” he said...

Icebags, dead ahead: The looming Yankee logjam could bring an end to the Hunger Games

Soon, Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis will return from their Jacuzzis and reclaim their Yankee lockers, perhaps bringing to a close the most satisfying month since October 2009. Don't gemmie wrong. To beat the Rangers, Angels and Tigers, we need both guys. Trouble is, without a tweaked gonad, their return will end Lyle Overbay's time as a Yankee. After the last six...

As Prince Harry wrapped up his trip to the United States on the East Coast, he got the chance to play America's pastime with the fine folks over at Harlem RBI.

Mariners outlast Yankees 3-2 thanks to Morse’s 10th HR of the year

Wedge tossed early – Everyone got to pitch! Smiles. Tonight’s article is a little different, because this team is a little different.
