DEAN ANNA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dean Anna is gone, so the Yankees have acquired a new guy with two first names, covering both genders

Jeff Francis. From Oakland. For cash and a (hopefully old) player to be named later. (If we gave up anybody good, you get the tar and I'll get the feathers.) He's a 33-year-old lefty who was decent in 2007, the year most of our current players peaked.Warning: Don't look at this record too closely. It will hurt.

Scouting Dean Anna as a Pitcher

Answer: Dean Anna comes in to pitch the bottom of the eighth. Saturday was not the best day for the Yankees. Ivan Nova was shaky throughout his first three starts. The Yankees really needed him to eat his share of innings in preparation for a Vidal Nuno-led bullpen day on Sunday. Instead, Nova got spanked. […]

Is John Sterling's Dean Anna home run call his worst ever?

I was traveling home from Manhattan last night during part of the Yankees-Red Sox game, so when Dean Anna hit his first home run as a Yankee (also his first MLB homer ever), I missed John Sterling's home run call. I half-expected Sterling to do a "Banana Fana Fo" call from the "Name Game" song. Instead, as I discovered from Facebook friends, Sterling's...

Yankeetorial: Is John Sterling over-thinking his home run calls?

It is time to save John Sterling's soul.Last night, The Master unveiled a new, high-concept home run call for utility infielder Dean Anna: "ANNA'S ON THE DEAN'S LIST," he shouted.

Consummate underdog Dean Anna cracks New York Yankees roster

Everyone loves a great underdog story, so everyone should be cheering for New York Yankees IF Dean Anna.  Not given much of a chance to make the Pinstripes roster, the 27-year-old Anna raised eyebrows when earned his way to his first opening day roster.  In fact, it will be his first time in a major league uniform.  After six full seasons riding busses to obscure minor league...

New York Yankees’ Dean Anna: End of a “long journey”

Dean Anna led the Triple-A Pacific CoastLeague with a .331 average in 2013 and didn’t even get the courtesy of a call up from the parent club San Diego Padres in September.

MadFriars' Player of the Year: Dean Anna

The player of the year award is about who had the best season; not who may or may not eventually become the best player, but who earned it on the field in 2013. We chose Dean Anna, a 26th-round draft choice out of Ball State University in Indiana, a school better known as David Lettermans alma mater than for producing baseball players. Its a great honor to win and I really appreciate...
