The regular season can't end too quickly for these stumbling, backpedaling Yankees.

Tonight, presumably, somebody will lose somewhere, and Yankee Stadium will finally erupt in cheers, as the Evil Army topples backwards into the 2015 Wild Card game. What a disaster. This should be a night of celebration. What a disaster.Other teams are making their final drive - the Redsocks look like next year's Blue Jays - while the old, tired and bloated Yankees drunkenly...

Brett Gardner is boringly consistent, but not consistently boring

When you watch a baseball game there’s always a chance you’ll see something you’ve never seen before. That’s because the sport is played in 30 different parks with countless variables that can affect play from weather conditions to fan involvement. For this reason, as well as human beings’ general attraction to novelty, we are always looking for the what’s new in the...

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...

The Yankee captain, Brett Gardner, is going to the All-Star Game

Shh. Don't tell anybody. But the Yankees have a captain, and his name is Brett Gardner. We're not supposed to have a captain. It's too soon. It's like dating your secretary, six months after Matilda dies. It's like going to the kennel for a replacement, without even moving Spotty's water dish. You're supposed to grieve. We're still getting over the fact that, after 20 years, Derek...

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...

Now that Robbie's gone, brace yourself for the other homegrown Yankee hitter, Brett Gardner, to follow

Yesterday, Vernon Wells went on the radio to say he'd love, love, love to return to the Yankees in 2014. One problem, though. Last year, Vernon sucked.  These days, reports from Japan say Ichiro Suzuki is also looking forward to donning pinstripes in 2014. That .297 on-base-percentage really gets your hopes up, eh? Why is bile directed at these aging stars clogging up a post about...

Could Brett Gardner Be Wearing The Orange And Black Next Season?

With the recent acquisitions of Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran to the New York Yankees outfield, and with in-house players Alfonso Soriano and Ichiro Suzuki not going anywhere, the Yankees are reportedly exploring trade possibilities involving current left fielder, Brett Gardner, in an effort to improve other areas of their team – mainly starting pitching.  The 30-year old...
