Yankees unveil startling new concept: A hitting secondbaseman who can be replaced in late innings for defense

On August 1, when Brian Cashman - Sports Illustrated candidate for the future Hall of Fame - traded a pair of promising lugnuts to Seattle for Dustin Ackley, the saddest part of the deal was finding that Ackley no longer played 2B. Over the last two years - since Robbie Cano jogged into Starbucks City - Ack had been banished to outposts of the Mariner realm where you'd expect to...

A-Rod presented with ring, vase at 3,000th hit ceremony

The New York Yankees on Sunday finally paid tribute to Alex Rodriguez for reaching the 3,000-hit milestone earlier this season with a 10-minute ceremony before the Bronx Bombers hosted the Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium. It was a rather low-key affair, per reports, that lacked the pomp and circumstance of previous milestone celebrations that have occurred at the Yankeesâ...

Hey Google, you made a mistake: Your definition of "Hapless" doesn't mention the New York Yankees

Well, so much for that.Just in time for football and pumpkin beer, the Retrieval Empire yesterday ended its quest for the 2015 AL East divisional title. From now on, that painful screeching sound will be Brian Cashman's fingernails digging into the chalkboard, as the team slides out of playoff contention. And I say... let it happen.Bring it on, juju gods! Let's lose today...

Isn't it time for Brian (Fredo) Cashman to grow the bleep up?

Last October, after the Yankees announced that Brian (Fredo) Cashman would be coming back as general manager, I made a conscious choice that I had to pull back on my "Cashman must go" narrative in Subway Squawkers. Not only was my anti-Cashman rhetoric futile, but all of the negativity was getting me down. Since then, I have made a conscious choice to have more positive things in...

Having taken their victory lap, the self-congratulatory Yankees have a month left to toast this ongoing disastrous season

In case you missed it, Sports Illustrated this week gives Brian Cashman a 2,000-word foot massage, barely a paragraph shy of a romp at the Airport Ramada. The upshot: Cashman is now a Yankee god, an icon comparable to Ruth and Gehrig, his bald head is bulletproof, and the 2015 Yankees stand as testimonial to his competence... this, as they plummet headlong into The Abyss.Yes...

Forget SI Article, Yankees' GM Brian Cashman Looks Great Right Now

Did Brian Cashman really tell Derek Jeter that he'd rather have Troy Tulowitzki at shortstop for the New York Yankees? Did he really enjoy being one of the few to "tell the Captain no" in the midst of Jeter's "diva-like tendencies?" If you are to believe an article in this week's Sports Illustrated, the answer to these questions is yes. The Tulowitzki comments were supposedly made...

Yankees finally get Dustin Ackley

The Yankees had been chasing Dustin Ackley for a while. I don’t know exactly how long the pursuit had gone on, but I remember rumors around the 2013 winter meetings, and they’ve popped up from time to time since. Somewhere, in the back of his mind, Brian Cashman maintained his interest in Ackley, and now […]

Cashman improves Yankees at deadline

Give credit where credit is due; New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman made his team better without giving up highly touted prospects this July. The Yankees have a long hill to climb, as the rotation was not addressed, but they certainly look a bit more solid as the calendar turns to August.As the clock began to wind down Thursday, it looked as though the Yankees might not...

Open letter to Brian Cashman: Here's how the Yankees can obtain David Price

Dear Madam or Sir:The Gammonites are calling for you to get David Price. No problemo.Here's how you can do it.In 2015, when he is a free agent, call him up on the phone. First, you'll need his phone number. You can try the Internet. If that doesn't work, get a phone book, or call someone who may know him and have the number. When you call him, have your secretary say, "Holding on...

New York Yankees: The Cashman dilemma

“I’m ready to rock and roll,” said New York Yankees’ general manager Brian Cashman in regards to the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline. Cashman is actively seeking to improve the team, but has yet to finalize a trade. The Yankees are officially at their halfway point in the season, playing 82 games going 41-41 and are currently third in the AL East. I’d say it’s about...
