Yankees Prospect Rookie Davis Advances to Double-A

A title becomes closely associated with you identity. It becomes emblematic of your thoughts, ideas, hobbies, and pursuits. Each person finds status in the moniker, fearing any deviation from stature, self-conscious of image. The same situation applies to the multifaceted structure of Corporate America with a slew of presidents, CEOs, and varying degrees of management. Professional...

Yankees Tex marks the spot!

One of baseball’s most steady and polished All Stars, Teixeira endured a rash of ailments which started cropping up in 2012. He dealt with a severe bronchial infection, wrist inflammation, and a...

Yankees weekend news wrap: Road trip, standing pat, two months to go

The New York Yankees remained in control of the American League East after going 6-4 on their road trip. The Yankees virtually stood pat at the deadline (minus one minor move) and the club has two months to, to the day, to maintain their position in the standings and reach the postseason for the first time since 2012. Great trip I wrote at the beginning of the 10-game road trip that...

New York Yankees: Expectations for Luis Severino

After the New York Yankees decided that Michael Pineda would require a stint on the disabled list for a forearm muscle strain on Thursday, many wondered if this injury would pave the way for young phenom Luis Severino to be promoted to the majors. Now we know that this is precisely what will happen, as Severino will make his highly anticipated debut Wednesday against the Red Sox...

Has the Yankees' refusal to trade prospects exposed a rift in the fabric of the Yankiverse?

At River Ave, the prolific, thoughtful, and generally lucid Mike Axisa is not happy. He says Brian Cashman blew it.I’m in the camp that thinks the Yankees have a wonderful opportunity in front of them — seriously, can you expect Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez to hit like this again next year? — and they should have been willing to trade a top or prospect or two to bolster...

Yankees call up top prospect Severino, will make start against Red Sox

Although the New York Yankees remained relatively quiet around the trade deadline, they did make some changes. With injuries to both Michael Pineda and Ivan Nova, the Yankees have called up top prospect, Luis Severino. Severino is a 21-year-old RHP from the Dominican Republic, and he’s been dominating with the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate, the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders...

Yankees: Why Dustin Ackley?

The New York Yankees seemed poised to make a deal Friday, the final day of the non-waiver trading period. The Yanks were linked to relievers Craig Kimbrel and Aroldis Chapman for parts of the day, hoping to make a splash by building a superpower bullpen. It wasn’t meant to be and the Yankees stayed pat on deadline day.The Yankees were not entirely quiet, making one deal this week...

What the Yankees quiet deadline means for the rest of their season

With the trade deadline coming to a close, the New York Yankees sat quiet, with the acquisition of Dustin Ackley being their sole move. While many Yankees fans had hoped for another name, big or small, they were left disappointed when 4PM EST hit, and they had heard nothing. What does this mean for the rest of the season? It might cause the Yankees to miss the playoffs. The Yankees...

New York Yankees to promote top prospect Luis Severino after standing pat at trade deadline

The 4 p.m. trade deadline came and went on Friday, with the New York Yankees among the least active. However, sometimes the answer to a team’s biggest need comes internally. General manager Brian Cashman, whose lone move was the acquisition of Dustin Ackley from the Seattle Mariners, announced that right-hander Luis Severino will make his next start in the Majors, with the date...

A big shoe drops today, and the mystery of Dustin Ackley will be explained

Something will happen today. It must happen. I'm sort of dreading it. Today, we will learn why, why, why the Yankees sandbagged themselves into a corner in their obsessive quest for somebody named Dustin Ackley.  I spent last night trying to figure it out. Never did. Ackley's nickname should be "The Sphinx." His presence as a Yankee - if he remains one after today - is a dark...

For #Yankees, Best Deal at Deadline May Be Rotation Shuffle, by @nyypete

Back in 1964, June 15th was the trade deadline. The Yankees were in the middle of a pennant race with Chicago and Baltimore much of that season. They had three reliable starters in their rotation in Whitey Ford, Al Downing and Jim Bouton. Three other pitchers, who were  in and out of  the rotation that year, Rollie Sheldon, Ralph Terry and Stan Williams, struggled with injuries...

Yankees finally get Dustin Ackley

The Yankees had been chasing Dustin Ackley for a while. I don’t know exactly how long the pursuit had gone on, but I remember rumors around the 2013 winter meetings, and they’ve popped up from time to time since. Somewhere, in the back of his mind, Brian Cashman maintained his interest in Ackley, and now […]

Has Chris Capuano thrown his last pitch for Yankees?

The New York Yankees felt they needed veteran depth for the rotation during the offseason and signed Chris Capuano to a one-year, $5 million contract to fit the role. Capuano supplied the Yankees with some decent innings in 2014, but at the time of the signing I felt this was an unnecessary deal. After putting up a 6.97 ERA this season, maybe it’s time the Yankees felt the same...

Yankees Bullpen Day Works Out Well In Short & Long-Term

Pedro Martinez apologizes to new 'teammate' Babe Ruth

Martinez, as you might recall, declared back in 2001 that he didn’t believe in “damn curses” – more specifically, the Curse of the Bambino – and that he’d drill Babe Ruth (who, of course, died in 1948) on the backside if he ever had an opportunity to...

Joe Girardi set to release sci-fi baseball game app

It turns out Joe Girardi isn’t just the manager of the New York Yankees. He’s an app designer now, too. Girardi had an idea back in 2013 to make a family-oriented, baseball-themed game that he could play with his kids after seeing how much time they spent playing apps. And on Aug. 5, the skipper will release his sci-fi baseball game, “Portalball.” “It was just an idea...
