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. It took Wang all of 12 scoreless innings in the WBC for the Yankees to abolish his past. Wang has been injured and ineffective for years, as his last decent outing in the majors was with the Yankees back on July 15, 2008. Wang broke his foot running the base pads in the game and he missed the rest of the season. In 2009, Wang’s return was a disaster as by the end of April he had an ERA of 34.50. At the start of July he was 1-6 but had lowered his ERA just shy of 11 but needed to have major shoulder surgery and that were what I thought were his last days in pinstripes.

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 .

Derek Jeter is no longer answering reporters’ intrusive questions regarding his foot.

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...

Yankees: What the Wang

Do you remember the last time you saw pitcher Chien-Ming Wang wear the New York Yankees pinstripes?  English: Wang in bullpen 2 (Photo credit: Wikipedia) It was on July 4, 2009 and Wang went five innings, gave up two runs, struck out three, walked three and hit a batter before being removed from the game. He was posted his lowest ERA of the 2009 season, a 10.04. Well, the 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...

From LoHud:“It was an easy decision for me (to sign back with the Yankees) because I never wanted to leave,” Wang said. “… It’s like back in the day. This was my first team, this is where I started.

Yankees panic and acquire Vernon Wells

I’ve already speculated that, when Brian Cashman broke his ankle skydiving March 4, that maybe he also unknowingly hit his head, because some of his moves and intentions this spring have been, well, questionable, if not downright nuts.   After the Yankees general manager acquired Angels outfielder Vernon Wells on Monday, I’m almost sure Cashman must’ve hit his head.   The...

Tampa Bay Rays fall to New York Yankees

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Vernon Wells might become the latest addition to the New York Yankees' injury-depleted lineup. As the Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-6 in 10 innings Sunday behind a pair of Kevin Youkilis home runs, New York was negotiating with the Los Angeles Angels to acquire the outfielder.

A few Higgs bosons have returned to their rightful places, and at least for a while, the universe has been restored: Chien-Ming Wang is back with the Yankees

In another universe, Michael Jackson went into rehab, Kim Kardashian forgot to wear protection and Chien-Ming Wang wasn’t running the bases that fateful day in Pittsburgh. Maybe Joe called for a pinch runner. Or maybe Wang didn't run full out. This is a better universe, a more orderly one, because everybody knows pitchers aren’t supposed to get hurt running the bases. In...
