YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Yankees: June letdowns

Another month, another set of players who struggled to get a rhythm going. June is an important point in the season for slumping players, as upper management has to decide if this poor month was simply a rough patch or a ominous sign of bad things to come. Like all other teams, the New York Yankees had their share of players who scuffled both on the mound and at the plate. Here...

GM Cashman not worried about Ellsbury being scratched

Before Thursday's rehab game, New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury was scratched.This, however, isn't a big deal according to general manager Brian Cashman. Here's what he told the New York Post about the scratch:“He is going through a spring-training-game-like-progression with all the sprints, and … slowly getting his legs back. All good. We will see him soon after we...

A-Rod on desire to make All-Star Game: ‘I’d walk to Cincinnati’

Alex Rodriguez is playing a much better brand of baseball than even his most ardent and loyal supporters could have possibly envisioned. But has his impressive performance thus far this season perhaps merit an invite to the 2015 All-Star Game in Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park on July 14? Regardless of the correct answer, A-Rod...Read More The post Alex Rodriguez on desire...

A-Rod, Yankees, union in talks to donate HR bonus to charity

As Alex Rodriguez neared the milestone of 660 career homers earlier this season, the otherwise significant accomplishment — the New York Yankees slugger’s tainted history notwithstanding — was marred with the news that A-Rod and the team were at odds over the disbursement of a $6 million marketing bonus he was due for it.

New York Yankees: instant reactions to game 79 vs. the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

The New York Yankees finally ended their dreaded 20-straight games on a high note, as they defeated the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, 3-1. Solid pitching and timely hitting were the main factors that led the team to victory. Here are my instant reactions to last night’s win. Nathan Eovaldi impresses Throughout his first season in pinstripes, it was apparent that Eovaldi could...

The road to Yankee Stadium goes through Trenton

For Yankees minor-leaguers, the road to Yankee Stadium goes through Trenton.

Since 2003, the Trenton Thunder have been the Double A affiliate for the Yankees, a destination where some of the greatest in the organization’s history have...

Yankees send Adam Warren to the Bullpen

On June 29th, the New York Yankees announced that they were sending right-hander Adam Warren to he bullpen, thus shortening their rotation back to the traditional five-man rotation. Warren, who might not have been this best in the rotation, has been the most constant starter for the Yankees this season. Warren has already set career highs in wins and innings pitched this year in...

Fan who caught A-Rod’s 3,000th says he’s received threats

Zack Hample, the so-called “professional ballhawk” who gained possession of the ball Alex Rodriguez deposited into the Yankee Stadium outfield seats for his 3,000th hit, claims he has received numerous “scary” threats due to his hard-line stance against freely relinquishing the coveted piece of baseball memorabilia to A-Rod. Hample, 37, tells TMZ that fans have...Read More...

Loss Of Warren Weakens A Yankees Rotation Already Weakend By Sabathia

Before each Yankee series begins, I post the pitching match-ups on the blog's Facebook page. I posted them yesterday evening with the comment, "Definitely not liking the fact that CC Sabathia pitches the opener." Sabathia did nothing to take away my fears, as he pitched poorly again, leading to the Yankees 4-1 loss to the Angels.Then I wake up this morning to even more bad news:...

Odd man out: New York Yankees to send Adam Warren to bullpen

With the return of pitcher Ivan Nova, the New York Yankees knew they had a difficult decision to make. Which starter would be the odd man out and get sent to the bullpen? That answer came early Tuesday morning in the form of right-hander Adam Warren, as first reported by the New York Daily News. After the Yankees 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Monday night, Warren...

New York Yankees’ Jacoby Ellsbury begins rehab stint

It seems like forever since Jacoby Ellsbury took a swing for the New York Yankees, and while he has been out since May 19, he is set to begin his minor league rehab assignment this week and can return to the Yankees as soon as Friday. Ellsbury suffered a freak accident in May against the Washington Nationals when he caught his cleat awkwardly during a swing. Ellsbury’s healing...

Yankees weekend news wrap: Series split, Gardner, Ellsbury and Miller

The New York Yankees were probably happy to leave Houston with a split of their four-game series with the first-place Astros, but the feeling that they could have gained a series victory might sit in their minds as well.In reality, the Astros could be the ones kicking themselves. They actually had the second game of the series in hand as well, leading 2-0 after six innings. If it...

When Garrett Jones and Carlos Beltran play OF, the 2015 Yankees pay the price for their original sin: Wanting to screw A-Rod

In our brief, recent sight-seeing excursion to the Confederacy, the damned Yankees gave the world two spectacular OF blunders, each worthy of a season ending low-light reel.Saturday night, Carlos Beltran pivoted around neatly to watch a fly ball land over his head and bounce against the wall - a sense of daring-do that would have made Bobby "The Wallflower" Abreu look like Minnie...

Jacoby Ellsbury soon to start rehab games for the New York Yankees

The New York Yankees could really use Jacoby Ellsbury and it is a good thing he is going to start playing rehab games this week. Ellsbury when healthy is the best outfielder the Yankees have and possibly their most consistent hitter. He is one of the best lead-off hitters in all of baseball. The lineup flows when he is in it because of his ability to get on base and steal bases....

WATCH: Carlos Correa scores after hitting routine fly ball

Carlos Correa hit what looked like a routine fly ball in the fourth inning of Sunday’s Yankees-Astros game. But this is baseball, and crazy things happen from time to time. Today, Correa’s ball wasn’t caught, and all hell broke loose. It went down in the books as a double and a two base error on center fielder Brett Gardner, who fumbled the ball after it fell between...

New York Yankees trade rumors: Brandon Phillips edition

As the trade deadline approaches, more and more eyes will be on the New York Yankees to see what trades they will make in order to improve a good, but not great, roster. While the team definitely has some positions covered, one weak spot on the team is second base. By now, most fans will agree that the Stephen Drew experiment has failed. He has provided serviceable defense at the...

Chris Young saves the night, the series, the road trip, maybe the season... and most of all, face

So shoot me. I was wrong about Chris "Forever" Young. Since April, whenever he's come to bat, I'd turn in the direction of Tampa and fart. I've had it with drain-circling ex-Mets, five years past peak foliage, who take a roster slot from a kid who shall never see the light of 100 Yankee at-bats. As a juggalo-level fan, I reserve the right to throw Faygo cola at Yankee teams...

Staggering toward July, and chasing another Wild Card, the Yankees face their annual Cashman culling of the herd

It's easy to over-exaggerate the importance of a Yankee defeat, especially when your psychic existence orbits around the health of - say - Carl Pavano's buttocks. And last night's shutout was as predictable as a sugar hangover on November 1. Watching the Evils coast through the 7th and 8th innings - flailing at first pitches like they had one of A-Rod's private girlie shows to catch...

Expecting Ivan Nova to boost Yankees’ rotation begs disappointment

What New York Yankees’ right-hander Ivan Nova has accomplished – returning from Tommy John surgery after 14 months away from the game – is undeniably commendable. It takes hard work and determination to rehab from this surgery despite its commonplace. But, it is not fair and completely disillusioned to expect Nova to be anything more than a back-of-the-rotation starter. He’s...

Sabathia's Failure To Transition From Ace Status Becoming Costlier & Costlier For Yankees

Full disclosure: I am a big CC Sabathia fan. I’ll forever remember his performance in 2009 in the regular season and the post season. Those two starts against the Angels in the A.L.C.S, the last on three days rest, were the exact reason the Yankees brought him in and paid him well more than any other team was even considering.The fireball throwing, fist pumping, roaring southpaw...
