Where have you gone Jose Pirela? Our nation turns its lonely eyes to you. (Boo-hoo-hoo.)

Oh, well... so much for that far-flung hope.Congratulations, Fate. You got me. The cigar exploded, the whoopie cushion farted, and the gum tasted like onion. Yep, you fooled me again. Yesterday, Jose Pirela hit the wall.  And so did my warmest spring fantasy.Of course, I was stupid to imagine Jose Pirela as anything more than The Second Coming of Yangervis Solarte. We all knew...

What should Yankees do with Jose Pirela?

The New York Yankees have made it crystal clear in recent days that Didi Gregorius and Stephen Drew are the double-play combination in the infield. Neither player is a force with the baseball bat, but both are considered above-average fielders. That said, these are not the only players keeping Jose Pirela off the Yankees 25-man roster at this point; add Brendan Ryan to the list...

Suzyn questions the brain trust: "Where's (Pirela) been? Why didn't he come up on September first? They brought everybody else up. Why not him?"

Jose Pirela, owner of the 2014 International League batting crown, will go down in the Yankiverse as the fellow whose single spawned Derek Jeter's final walk-off hit in the Bronx. Thus, he joins J.R. Murphy - the catcher standing on the mound when Mariano fatefully walked away - as a future trivia answer and keynote speaker of the 2027 airport Ramada baseball card convention near...

Dismissed as organizational fodder, ignored for a September 1 call-up, Jose Pirela makes his case

Throughout the 2014 season, Jose Pirela faced one unshakable problem: He wasn't a 30-something castoff from some penny-pinching National League team. If Pirela had been - say - a scrap heap meatball from San Diego or Washington, the Wizard of Waivers, Brian Cashman, would have snapped him up long ago, and Jose would have gotten a chance to play for the famous New York Yankees.Unfortunately...
