YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: Jeter does Ice Bucket Challenge, challenges MJ

Yankees’ David Robertson hears it from boo birds

The success rate of the best closers hovers around a 90 percent conversion mark. Fifty save opportunities would equate to 45 saves. I would imagine any number of teams would sign up for such a rate.Do closers (or other high-leverage relievers for that matter) deserve to hear the wrath of the baseball public for those times where they are not successful? Does an abundance of positive...

Do the New York Yankees now have a home-field disadvantage?

Something struck me last night when watching the Yankees-Astros game -- how quiet the ballpark was (other than the booing of David Robertson, of course!) The crowd wasn't very loud, even when the Yankees were scoring runs. And after Robertson blew the save, and after the crowd was done booing, you could have heard a pin drop for the rest of the game, it was so quiet. It was if...

New Jersey dot com says the Yankees have passed on the Cuban Brett Gardner with power

I hope they are wrong. But if they're right - well - the Gate-Keeper just slept with Zuul, and New York City is about to meet the Marshmallow Man. This is what happens when a team is so larded, so addicted to overpriced veterans, and with trying to win tomorrow's game, that it cannot make a long-term strategy. This is how franchises suck for 10 years.Supposedly, Hal Steinbrenner...

The Yankees play most of their remaining games against cupcakes, also known as the AL East

Remember back in the long, hot summer of '14, back when the AL East was a pennant race? Back in the good ol' days - remember Lana Del Ray, and the FIFA World Cup? Back then, the YESIR Network assured us that the AL East would go down to the wire, because almost the entire month of September involves intra-division play. The Yankees play eight against Baltimore, seven against...

Stakes are high for the New York Yankees

What To Make Of The Yankees’ Replacement Starters

A remarkable thing happened in the first week of August. The New York Yankees took three of four games from a Detroit Tigers team that now boasts about as good a starting rotation as we’ve ever seen, at least on paper. Following their deadline acquisition of former Rays ace David Price, the Tigers can now roll out a rotation featuring Max Scherzer (2013 Cy Young winner), Price...
