YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

America's Pregame: Can A-Rod get out from under PED cloud?

It's safe to say the New York Yankees wouldn't be in first place in the American League East without Alex Rodriguez. In fact, under other circumstances, he could even be considered part of the Most Valuable Player discussion. Rodriguez, who turns 40 on Monday, is having a stellar season as the Yankees' designated hitter, batting .277 with a .375 on-base percentage, 23 homers and...

New York Yankees: instant thoughts to game 97 vs. the Minnesota Twins

After splitting the first two games of a three game set, the New York Yankees were able to win the series on Sunday, defeating the Minnesota Twins 7-2. Nathan Eovaldi had arguably his best start in pinstripes, while the offense broke out for six runs in the sixth inning – both being key elements to the team’s victory. Lets take a look at my instant thoughts to Sunday’s matinee...

Pedro Martinez apologizes to new 'teammate' Babe Ruth

  This embed is invalid   " /> Pedro Martinez extended an olive branch upon arriving in Cooperstown. 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...

New York Yankees to rest Masahiro Tanaka, bullpen game possible

The New York Yankees are preparing to announce a sixth starter for Tuesday’s opener against the Texas Rangers, as they continue to be extra careful with Masahiro Tanaka. The move allows Tanaka to get extra rest so that he can keep his right arm in good shape. The starter will most likely come from the Yankees bullpen, however, there is a chance they make a move for a pitcher before...

Yankees need another strong second half from Chase Headley

When the New York Yankees traded for Chase Headley last July, they hoped he would find his stroke and solidify the revolving door at third base. He did. This season, after a rocky first half, the Yanks are looking for another strong finish from Headley in both departments. He’s on his way to doing it.Chase HeadleyPhoto credit: Keith Allison via FlickrHeadley was signed to a four...

Pineda For Jesus?

Last night, Michael Pineda, and his akimbo hat, looked like an overcooked sausage, looking for a bun.The game was over before I sat down.  A 2 run dinger in the first inning just sucked the air out of the Yankee balloon.  Some will say, " you can't win them all."  But how about waiting until the game is underway?It turned the Ju-Ju backwards.In the early innings, as the Yankees...

Yankees face haunting recurrence of evil spirits: Ex-Yankees rising from their graves to cause mayhem

Something's up in the juju grid. I'm figuring some keyboard geek dropped a Happy Meal French fry into the Hadron Mega-Collider, and it's causing huge time and space glitches - not only here, but at our NASA-certified mirror planet... where the evil, bearded Joe Girardi is carrying on with that infamous, man-eating succubus, Suzyn W, during what is advertised as her nightly "Clubhouse...

The New York Times' Harvey Araton sez Barry Bonds should be in the Hall of Fame. I agree.

Like many baseball fans, I have had a number of thoughts and emotions over the years on what MLB should do/should have done about performance enhancing drugs. It is bizarre to me the way this has all shaken out. Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, who are HOFers even if you cut out their steroid years, are left out of the Hall. Meanwhile, Joe Torre, Tony LaRussa, and Bobby Cox, who won...

Hot Yankees Need To Avoid Letdown on 10 Game Trip

It's been the story of the Yankees season so far. Just when they seem to be on a roll, something happens. Thursday the Yankees loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the first and the next two hitters failed to advance the runners. It looked as if something was about to happen.    But Chase Headley, who has struggled all season at the plate and in the field, delivered...

Bronx brooms: Ellsbury, Headley lead Yankees to sweep of O's

  Jacoby Ellsbury finished a triple shy of the cycle and drove in four runs and Chase Headley hit a three-run double in the first inning as the New York Yankees completed a three-game sweep of the Baltimore Orioles, 9-3, on Thursday to bolster their spot atop the AL East. Masahiro Tanaka (7-3) won his third straight start, allowing three solo homers and a double in 7 2/3 innings...

A-Rod, Mark Teixeira engage in bromantic mutual admiration society

Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira both smashed homers on Wednesday in the New York Yankees’ 4-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles. And while their respective production this season couldn’t possibly have been predicted, the fact remains that both players have proven to be catalysts in an unlikely resurgence of the Bronx Bombers. Both ballplayers, riding...Read More The post...

Fan who caught A-Rod’s 3,000th hit alleges assault at game

Zack Hample, the professional ball-hawk who wrangled the home run ball Alex Rodriguez deposited into the Yankee Stadium seats for his 3,000th hit, claims he was assaulted before Wednesday’s game between the Yankees and Orioles. Hample, 37, claims a man attacked him in the right-field stands and that the aggressor “was basically throwing punches and...Read More The post Man who...

Negating Predictions, Yankees Increase AL East Lead With Series Win Over Orioles

Back on April 1st, when Christina, Pete and I gave our season predictions for the New York Yankees, things looked rather bleak. My contributors did their best to be optimistic, each predicting the second Wild Card. I, myself, was more pessimistic, stating that the Yankees would miss the playoffs for the third year in a row. Well, the season isn't over yet, but if things continue...

Buchholz receives injection, still expected to return this season

Clay Buchholz will be on the shelf for longer than originally anticipated. Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters Wednesday in Houston that Buchholz received a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection in his injured right elbow from Dr. James Andrews, who confirmed the team’s initial diagnosis of a strained flexor muscle. Farrell said the injection will extend Buchholz’s...

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...

With a five-game lead in the loss column, the Yankees now have only injuries to fear

This is Buck Is Stuck Week in the AL East, a series where the Yankees can - on paper, at least - turn the rest of the O's season into a quest for that horrible, terrible, wretched one-game Wild Card birth. If we split the next two, Baltimore leaves NY five down in the loss column. If we sweep them - ahhh, mama - they leave seven back... with only eight games remaining against us...

Brendan Ryan: Short Term Hero But Not Long Term Answer For Yankees

I’ll be honest. Despite Brendan Ryan's Tuesday night performance, I still don’t think he’s the team's best option.Ryan produced a 2-out double that scored Didi Gregorius from 1B, in what proved to be the winning run in the Yankees 3-2 win over division rival Baltimore.Brian Cashman, who has to be feeling vindicated given the results of the game, obviously disagrees, because...

Could Brett Gardner's white spikes get him fined?

When Brett Gardner raced back to make a nice leaping grab off the bat of Austin Jackson in the top of the third inning Sunday at Yankee Stadium, it seems the only thing everyone noticed was his shoes. The All-Star looked pretty spiffy in his pair of all-white New Balance cleats and here they are: Brett Gardner made a nice leaping catch. But who cares when he’s wearing...

New York Yankees trade rumors: Relief pitching edition

One of the most overlooked aspects of a baseball team is relief pitching. The confidence for a manager to look at his bullpen and know that the guys down in the pen will get the job done by securing the 7th, 8th, and 9th inning or earlier in the game is crucial. One of the strengths of the Yankees for the last few years has been their relief pitching. This season, the narrative...

New York Yankees trade rumors: Carlos Beltran edition

With right fielder Carlos Beltran set to return as soon as today, the New York Yankees have an interesting decision on their hands. Obviously they will remove somebody from their current roster to pave the way for his activation from the DL, but the bigger question is whether the team should still keep him. At 38 years old with an increasingly frail body, Beltran is better suited...

Ben Affleck jumped at chance to present ESPY to Derek Jeter

It’s not breaking news to anyone that Ben Affleck is a Boston Red Sox fan, right? The guy refused to wear a Yankees hat in Gone Girl when director David Fincher asked him to, believing — correctly so — that someone wanting to be incognito in New York City would wear something that blends in to the scenery. Affleck said he and Fincher had a “legitimate fight” over the...
