Yankees are waist deep in the Big Muddy (Stephen Drew), and the big fool (Girardi) says to push on

Question for the day: Where's Brian Roberts, the former Mr. Oriole? Can he hit off a tee? Does he ever take grounders? Fifteen months ago, the Retrieval Empire waived Roberts, because he was hitting a paltry .240! Now...Insert horrible scream here.All right, get a grip. One of the kinkier truths of the 2015 season is that the Yankee "baseball men," the gin-swollen golfers who cut...

Yankeetorial: As they make the final turn, the Yankees need players, not contracts

I spent July whining about Brian Roberts, which was like mocking a lawn flamingo. I hated myself. Roberts is a nice fellow whose body simply ran out of baseball games, in the same gasping, wheezing way that a keg runs out of beer. The Yankees' biggest improvement was to release him and try someone new. But they couldn't: There was that contract. We were paying him so much money...

The Master absolutely loves what Brian Roberts brings to this emerging Yankee ballclub

Last night, after Brian Roberts notched his second base hit, Suzyn Waldman felt inspired enough to do some napkin math on his batting average.

With a five-run lead, a bolt of pure human joy resounded over the Yankee Radio Network, driven by...

New York Yankees fill their lineup

A few days ago, I wrote about how the New York Yankees needed to address their second base situation for the first time in nine seasons. I talked about how the Yankees can’t afford to go into the season with Kelly Johnson as their everyday second baseman. Brian Roberts should provide some type of production at the 2B position (Derick E. Hingle – USA TODAY Sports) After losing...
