YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Dooney & Bourke Night At The Stadium

In my regular daily post about the latest Yankees game, I mentioned that I had actually attended last night's contest. I saved my ticket: Yes, my friends, I watched the Yankees beat the Mets from a suite (!), compliments of  handbag and accessories icon Dooney & Bourke, along with the group that handles their PR, Atelier Creative Services, Inc. In addition to their...

Yankees Sweep Bronx Half of Subway Series

Sonny Gray probably will never forget his first Yankees win. In Yankee Stadium, during the Subway Series against the Mets, his line included 6IP, 2ER and 5K. I was in the ballpark for every one of his 104 pitches, and every other pitch that was thrown during the game. (I'll have more to say about that later today.)  Gray's only mistake was a fat pitch to rookie Dominic Smith...

One more Yankees pitcher headed to the DL

Luis Cessa was only in the Yankees rotation for one start, but that was long enough for the right-hander to join the team’s growing list of injured pitchers. Cessa was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday after an MRI exam showed a rib cage injury. He was pulled in the fifth inning against the...

Sonny Gray gets 1st Yankees win thanks to run support and this pitch

In his first appearance as a Yankee, Sonny Gray saw his defense implode in the very first inning and then watched the offense bust out the lumber for all of one run. And that was one run more than the Yankees gave him for support in his second start after being traded from Oakland. So...

WATCH: WWE Superstars present Aaron Judge with championship belt

Aaron Judge won the 2017 MLB Home Run Derby and received his official trophy that night. But the best prize didn’t come until Tuesday. That came when WWE Superstars Braun Strowman, Alexa Bliss and Big Cass dropped by Yankee Stadium to present Judge with an official championship belt. That’s a pretty sweet gift. And frankly, who would fault Judge for walking up to the plate with...

Aroldis Chapman Doesn’t Look Right

Sunday night, Rafael Devers went yard against Aroldis Chapman, even though Chapman’s fastball was recorded at nearly 103 miles per hour. It’s the fastest pitch hit out in the pitch-tracking era, which has spanned nearly a decade, and that linked article was almost obligatory. Had to write something up. Devers tagged Chapman, even though it seemed like Chapman had his best stuff...

Let’s Watch Rafael Devers Take Aroldis Chapman Deep

The most improbable home run I’ve ever watched in real time was hit last November. You know the one — it was the one hit by Rajai Davis, against Aroldis Chapman, with Davis choked halfway up the barrel. I’m sure that, mathematically, there have been home runs of a lesser likelihood, but that Davis blast just felt impossible. It didn’t feel real until the ball cleared the...

Why the struggling New York Yankees will make the playoffs

The New York Yankees have not played well over the past two weeks. They went 12-6 in their first 18 games after the All-Star break, but have won only 4 out of 12 games since then. They are just six games above .500 and are 5 1/2 games behind the Red Sox for first place in the AL East. The Red Sox are the hottest team in baseball right now. They would be on an 11-game winning streak...

Aaron Judge Rocks Korean Elbow Pad

If you blinked…you missed it.

CC Sabathia’s latest injury a red flag for potential resigning with New York Yankees

CC Sabathia has been one of the more consistent pitchers on the New York Yankees’ staff in 2017. He’s provided a veteran presence in the clubhouse and has often pitched well enough this year to give the Yanks a chance to win. So far, Sabathia has compiled a 9-5 record with an ERA of 4.05 and a FIP of 4.58. Decent, but not great numbers. His last couple of starts have been relatively...

Betances is getting his effectiveness back

Dellin Betances is a ridiculous talent. He is a create-a-player type you would craft up in MLB The Show. Who wouldn’t want a 6’8 reliever who routinely touches 100 mph and offsets that with a nasty breaking pitch? His freakish build and dynamite fastball-curve combo have helped him anchor a position in the Yankees bullpen for four years now. For the most part, Betances has eviscerated...
