BRIAN MCCANN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Report: Yankees willing to eat salary to deal Brian McCann

The New York Yankees want to get younger, and they understand that they might have to take on some salary to do so. The Yankees are interested in dealing catcher Brian McCann, and according to Yahoo! Sports’s Jeff Passan, they’re willing to eat some of his contract in order to get good young pieces in return. Sources: Yankees have expressed willingness to pay half of Brian...

Report: Brian McCann clears waivers, eligible to be dealt this month

The Great Yankee Purge of 2016 could be close to claiming another victim. According to a report by Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball on Sunday, catcher Brian McCann has cleared waivers and is now eligible to be dealt before the waiver trade deadline at the end of August. “Out with the old, in with the new” appears to be the motto of the Yankees these days with the impending...

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...

No Longer Boom or Bust: Brian McCann’s Yankee Stadium Production

In the winter of 2013, Baseball Prospectus ranked Brian McCann as the off-season’s fourth best free agent. At the time, he was a 29-year-old, prime-of-his career catcher and a career .277/.350/.473 hitter. McCann had six seasons of at least 20 home runs and a career 10 percent walk rate. When he signed with the Yankees that December, it seemed like a major upgrade for a team whose...

While McCann Deserves A Pass, Other Yankees Derserve Anything But

Fans were given another tease last night, as the Yankees came from behind to beat the Rays by a score of 8-5. Actually, there was more than one tease, including one from Brian McCann. McCann went 2-3 with three RBIs, including a home run.  Seeing performances like this from him so late in the season is beyond frustrating.In spite of the frustration, I am willing to say this: We...

A sad old team, going nowhere, waiting to die

Last night, the rusted Yankee pipe-wrench known as Brian McCann homered in the ninth inning, cutting the Redsocks' lead to five. As he bulldogged around the bases, McCann looked embarrassed, like the dad who comes home puking drunk at 1 a.m., and wakes his kids to give them candy bars. Alfonso used to call them "A-Rod homers" - blast that pad personal numbers, but have no effect...

Girardi's Faith In Yankees' McCann Might Be Misplaced & Not Rewarded

In our previous post, Bernadette expressed her hope that Brian McCann will turn things around this season. Christina, however, is not so sure:The New York Yankees are a bad team right now. After another frustrating loss to a division rival on Tuesday night, the Yankees fell to 41-41 and 2-8 in their last 10 games. Their expected win-loss record of 37-45 is a lot closer to where they...

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...
