YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mark Teixeira’s about to knock Rob Refsnyder’s bat to the bench

Mark Teixeira will be back at first base on Saturday after being sidelined for three weeks with torn cartilage in his right knee. It’s good news for the first baseman, but will mean less playing time for his unexpected replacement, Rob Refsnyder. Refsnyder started at first again on Friday against Minnesota, hardly a surprise considering...

Betances, Miller, Chapman perfect again, Yanks top Twins 5-3

NEW YORK (AP) Aroldis Chapman reared back and fired strike after strike at the Minnesota Twins. Eduardo Escobar swung past pitches of 101 mph, 102 and 102. Byung Ho Park took a 102 offering, fouled off a 103 and swung over a 103. After three straight 103s, taking the first and fouling two more off, Kurt Suzuki managed to foul off Chapman's fastest pitch of the night at 104. And...

Yankees come from behind for 5-3 win over Twins in series opener

There’s nothing quite like a game against the Twins to make you feel good about the Yankees, is there? The Yankees rallied from behind to beat Minnesota in game one of their three-game series Friday night. The final score was 5-3. New York is, once again, a .500 ballclub. They’re 36-36. It would be cool if they got over .500 and stayed over this time. A Shaky Tanaka Start Is...

How much longer can Yankees trot out devastating trio?

The most exciting three minutes in New York sports could have roughly six weeks remaining. Even if the Yankees are in contention for the AL East title or one of the two wild-card spots, it’s not out of the question they would deal Aroldis Chapman before the last day of July. He will be a...

Heyman: Yankees have not ruled out re-signing Chapman

According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees have not ruled out re-signing impending free agent Aroldis Chapman after the season. He’s said to have enjoyed his time in New York. My guess is he’ll enjoy the city of the highest bidder too, whatever it may be. It doesn’t sound as though the two sides have had any contracts talks yet. Chapman, 28, has a 3.00 ERA (2.07 FIP) with 27 strikeouts...

The 2016 Yankees: What's To Like, What's Not To Like?

Hal Steinbrenner recently proclaimed that he expected the Yankees to be "in the thick of it" come the trade deadline on August 1st. The Yankees,  despite a 35-36 record are not exactly buried in either the AL East or Wild Card race at this time. As the season approaches the half way point, players who have slumped so far in the first half, could have breakout second half performances...

After this weekend, the Yankees start running out of tomato cans... and other ponderings of the unponderable

Starting today, the New York Sisyphusians - (they eternally drop the boulder at .500) - play their final three 2016 games against their great friends, the Twinkies of St. Paul. There are still worse teams out there - (the Pads, for example, whom we visit next Friday) - but sand is running out on the theory that the Yankees are a Wild Card Away Berth-quality team. It's now or never...

Alex Rodriguez’s hamstring seems to be attached to his eyes

In everyday life we most commonly think of human bodies holistically. Walking down the street we tend to see the fine folk in our path as people instead of limbs, torsos, rib cages and facial features. Things are a little different when evaluating athletes. In baseball, arms, shoulders, elbows, legs, and hands are commonly scrutinized intently by scouts, fans and front office...

Game 71 Recap: Starlin earns his pinstripes

This recap was going to read very differently in the seventh inning of Wednesday’s 9-8 Yankees’ win. CC Sabathia finally had an off night, middle relievers once again came back to haunt the Yankees, and the offense couldn’t do enough to overcome the deficit. Thankfully, the Yankees managed to come back from four runs and won the game in walk off fashion via a Starlin Castro...

‘Brutally honest’ Cashman knows Yankees may be sellers

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman isn’t ready to concede the team should be sellers at the Aug. 1 trade deadline. But he nevertheless admitted his “brutally honest” nature will compel him to throw in the towel on the season if and when the time comes.

Hal Steinbrenner confident Yankees can still make playoffs

The New York Yankees have looked like a mediocre team at best this season, and they have a 34-35 record that shows it. With the trade deadline a little over a month away, it might be in their best interest to be sellers for a change rather than buyers. Hal Steinbrenner doesn’t see that happening. Why? Because the Yankees owner believes his team is still right in the thick of things...

New York Yankees: Could CC Sabathia make the All-Star team?

With the New York Yankees still stuck in mediocrity at 34-35 and sitting in fourth place in the AL East, one of the bright spots this season has definitely been the resurgent CC Sabathia. Written off as nothing more than a fringe #5 starter with a bloated contract, Sabathia has looked his best in years. That begs the question: could the 35-year-old actually make the All-Star team...
