Will Yankees’ Brett Gardner remain a valuable commodity?

It’s a business and the New York Yankees believe outfielder Brett Gardner is a valuable commodity. All the same, it will be interesting to see if Gardner’s value as an asset grows or diminishes during and after the 2016 season. Is this the final season in Gardner’s contract that his performance will considerably influence his worth to the club as a trade piece?Brett GardnerPhoto...

Painted into a corner by austerity, we must steel ourselves for the inevitable Brett Gardner trade

One of the best parts - no, THE best part - of the recent Justin Wilson trade was that it surely ended any Yankee front office delusion about dealing Andrew Miller. As Scotty would tell Kirk, "The pen, Captain, she can't take it any more!" Simultaneously, we are now done with the fantasy that Hal "I'm Not Cheap" Steinbrenner is lying in wait, prepared to spring catlike on a big...

Brett Gardner: Second-Half Slacker

The Yankees have been throwing Brett Gardner’s name out in trade talks (frequently) this offseason, and it certainly isn’t overly surprising. The outfielder, who was an All-Star in 2015, was anything but in the second half, batting an abysmal .206/.300/.292 with a well-below average 66 wRC+. His finish to 2015 left fans, and the team, with a bad taste in their mouth. A freshly...

New York Yankees: Trade Brett Gardner?

How much will the current run by the New York Mets at a World Series title affect the New York Yankees and their decades-long status as the superior New York team? Obviously, we won’t know for sure but one thing is clear: the Yanks have some work to be done if they want to compete with the Mets, as their recent success doesn’t appear to be a fluke. One potential move they could...

WATCH: Yankees fan throws HR ball back, hits Brett Gardner

It’s not uncommon for fans to throw a visiting players’ home run ball back onto the field, but one New York Yankees fan got a little overexcited while doing it Sunday. During the top of the fourth inning of the Yankees’ game against Toronto, Blue Jays right fielder Jose Bautista smacked a homer to left field. The fan who caught the ball tried to toss it back, but they ended...

New Jersey dot com says the Yankees have passed on the Cuban Brett Gardner with power

I hope they are wrong. But if they're right - well - the Gate-Keeper just slept with Zuul, and New York City is about to meet the Marshmallow Man. This is what happens when a team is so larded, so addicted to overpriced veterans, and with trying to win tomorrow's game, that it cannot make a long-term strategy. This is how franchises suck for 10 years.Supposedly, Hal Steinbrenner...

A Late Response (To Gardner) & An Early Run (Regarding Collisions)

There was no time to post about Brett Gardner's contract extension until now, right after the new rule about home plate collisions was announced. A few words about both:First, Gardner's extension.  I agree with most people who say $13 million per year is too much money for a player whose best skills are getting on base and catching the ball.  Notice that I didn't include stolen...
