BRIAN MCCANN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Has Brian McCann fulfilled Yankees’ expectations?

After the New York Yankees turned to a defense-first offering behind the plate for the 2013 season, they decided it was best to sign an offensive catcher who could still make a difference behind the dish. The Yanks inked Brian McCann, then a longtime backstop for the Atlanta Braves, to a five-year, $85 million contract before the 2014 season.Brian McCannPhoto Credit: Keith Allison...

Brian McCann tops buy-low options for the 2nd half

There are few things in Fantasy Baseball more difficult and more rewarding than sending the perfect trade proposal. You never want to lowball an opposing owner and abruptly end the trade discussion, however; you also don’t want to include that unnecessary extra piece when they would’ve accepted a lesser offer. Here are some players that are due for a bout of good luck after...

Though Horrible, Yankees Brian McCann Taking Steps To Change

They say the first step toward getting rid of a problem is to admit that you have one. Brian McCann has a problem, and last night he admitted it.After signing his big free agent deal in the off-season, McCann was expected to provide much-needed lefty power to the Yankees lineup, especially toward Yankee Stadium's short porch in right field. So far, however, that hasn't quite happened...

New York Yankees: A look at Brian McCann

Brian McCann has played a total of 50 games as a New York Yankee. He has been at bat 179 times this season with 41 hits, 7 homers and 24 RBIs. I would say his first two months as a Yankee have been below average for him, especially offensively. Every athlete has their slumps in their sports, and it’s how they overcome the slump that really speaks to their character and athleticism...

How the New York Yankees will make the playoffs

The New York Yankees missed out on the playoffs for the 2nd time in nineteen years last spring. This year there is still a chance for the boys in stripes. Figuring out exactly what they need to do in order to get there might be harder than actually making it happen. Luckily for you I did my research and I think I have a few ideas how our New York Yankees can snatch up a spot in the...

Chopcast: McCann's departure leaves big shoes to fill

Brian McCann is on his way out of Atlanta, signing with the New York Yankees for what is one of the most lucrative deals ever given to a catcher. At five years and 85 million, with the possibility of breaching the 100 million mark when all is said and done, the seven-time All-Star was paid handsomely for his services. But even with a new deal and a new stadium -- with a lefty-friendly...

The Brian McCann Signing & What It Means For The Future Of Yankee Catching

I have to admit that catching was the furthest thing from my mind this off-season when it came to the New York Yankees. I've been too busy thinking about pitching, Robinson Cano and about how the A-Rod mess will affect the payroll. So, I was a little surprised to find out that Brian McCann will be wearing pinstripes in 2014. At first it was just plain surprise. Then it was pleasant...

To any Yankee fan who happens to read this post in the year 2018, we're sorry about the Brian McCann thing

OK, look: I'm not trying to be a downer. Really, I swear it. I understand that the Yankees had to do something, and signing a catcher is a worthy place to start.I just wonder if a 5-year deal (with an option on six) for a 30-year-old catcher is a smart long-range strategy, and - frankly - if there will ever even be a long range strategy for the Yankees. It costs us our first round...
