If the CIA commissioned a $10 million study on how to break a person's spirit, they would come up with the way the Yankees are dealing with Rob Refsnyder

It's so clean, so perfect, so insidious... The kid works his way up from Scranton, replaces a veteran who hasn't hit in Obama's second turn, does his job, hits a home run... and as a result... he gets a ticket back to Scranton.Welcome to Gitmo, Rob Refsnyder. Your crime? Being young. Not being ridiculously overpaid, so they have to play you.So, what now for Ref? The psycological...

Refsnyder Shows Potential & Problems as Yankees Earn Series Win Against Red Sox

With Refsnyder Called Up, Clock is ticking for Stephen Drew

Questions have been a common theme for Stephen Drew the past couple of seasons. After having a decent 2013 campaign for the Boston Red Sox, he decided to hold out until May of 2014 to receive a one-year, $10 million deal.

Are The Yankees Really At Full Strength With Stephen Drew On Their Roster?

Jacoby Ellsbury and Andrew Miller are two huge cogs in the Yankees' machinery, and their return to the roster yesterday went a long way in securing hope for a return to the playoffs. Ellsbury proved his legs were fine when he legged out an infield hit, and Miller notched his 18th save, as the Yankees beat the Athletics 5-4, setting up a rubber game at the Stadium this afternoon.Assuming...

Tick tock, tick tock... Stephen Drew is on the clock

Last night, by 2015 standards, Stephen Oris Drew had a solid game: 0-3 with a walk. He got on base via an error - then got doubled up on a liner (not entirely his fault.) At 2B, he didn't Yangervis or Nunez any grounders. Yep, a big night, all around.That's how miserable our 2B situation has become. A walk = big night.Watching Drew - uniform dirty, teeth perpetually gritted...

New York Yankees: Rob Refsnyder is the heir apparent at second base

Coming into this season, the New York Yankees had hoped that Stephen Drew’s 2014 struggles at the plate were due to him skipping out on Spring Training. Unfortunately for the team, it seems that the incumbent second basemen has lost all ability to be even an average hitter.   Of all Major League players qualified for the batting title, Drew has the worst average; he’s hitting...

Report: Stephen Drew's asking price for 2015 is '9M to $10M'

Stephen Drew certainly thinks a lot of himself. The free-agent veteran infielder has drawn interest from a number of teams this offseason, including the Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, Toronto Blue Jays and Oakland Athletics, but he might continue to remain on the open market if agent Scott Boras doesn’t lower his asking price substantially. According to Joel Sherman of the...
