Mike Trout sets new record, passes A-Rod

Mike Trout. Photo Credit: Stephen Dunn/Getty Images. Just when you thought the reigning American League MVP couldn’t get any better he does. He just does something even more incredible than before. That’s what happened Friday night when the Los Angeles Angels took on the Houston Astros. Mike Trout became the youngest player to accumulate both 100 stolen bases and 100 home runs...

Alex Rodriguez tattoos 477-foot homer at the Trop

Alex Rodriguez is having a pretty good year so far for the New York Yankees, and in the second inning of their game on Friday night with the Rays at Tropicana Field, he smashed a home run 477 feet off of Nate Karns. Needless to say, that’s the longest homer of the young 2015 season. It’s also the longest Yankees homer of the last decade, the longest homer by Rodriguez over the...

The 2015 Yankees: To Panic Or Not To Panic?

So is it time to panic? We are nine games into the season and the results are not good.. If this keeps up for the rest of the year the Yankees will finish at 54-108. If that happens be sure to check into the list of top prospects for the 2016 draft. Yes, it is frustrating to be a Yankee fan these days. We fans have come to expect the Yankees to contend every year. We're told by the...

Yankees: A-Rod’s “four facets” talk rings true

Should the Yankees turn to Chris Young

It’s still early in the 2015 season and any look at statistics has to be done with the caveat of considering it is from a small sample size. This could be thought to be the case when considering the right field situation for the Yankees. Carlos Beltran is off to a horrible start with a slash line of .156.176.250. The typical thought is that he is a veteran and he will turn it...

Same old, same old: Brian Cashman looks silly after getting ripped off (again) by Dave Dombrowski

The New York Post's Joel Sherman wrote an excellent column yesterday about how it looks like Yankees GM Brian (Fredo) Cashman was again "fleeced" by Detroit GM Dave Dombrowski. I have been banging this drum for years, and now Sherman is making his own noise in his Post column. He went through all the times that Dombrowski has gotten the better of Cashman, going back to when the Tigers...

Yankees unable to offer New Yorkers any comfort in 2015

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports As the NBA prepares for it’s annual transition to the playoffs and the beginning of baseball season fills all five boroughs with early signs of summer, the majority of sports fans throughout New York City are mired in disappointment and wondering if things will ever be the same.

An Open Letter To Didi Gregorius

Dear Didi (or, Sir Didi if you prefer): Let’s be clear. Nobody is putting all the blame on you for the Yankees 3-5 record, or for their place at the bottom of the A.L. East. That wouldn’t be fair. Between Masahiro Tanaka’s subpar starts, CC Sabathia’s poor starts (although last nights 7 IP and 4 ER was an improvement) and poor situational hitting with RISP, there’s plenty...

Top New York Yankees prospect, Luis Severino, made an emphatic start to his 2015 campaign for the Double A Trenton Thunder Tuesday night.

New York Yankees: Reviewing an eventful opening week

With the first week of baseball in the books, the Yankees are sitting at 3-4. Not as good as many would have hoped, however it was obvious that there would be initial growing pains. The expectations are low this season. With a long season ahead of them they have plenty of time to mesh and improve team chemistry. The New York Yankees had trouble scoring runs initially. Besides the...

When the Yankees signed Stephen Drew, I threw up.I hated, hated, HATED the deal.

Yankees remain a mystery one week into season

The New York Yankees have completed their first week of the regular season and the results have been inconsistent to say the least. Their 2-4 record puts them in last place in the American League East as they begin a 10-game road trip Monday.There is just as much evidence pointing to that being a good reflection of the club’s future as there is that the record is an aberration...

Slumping Didi Gregorius says all he can do is laugh off Derek Jeter chants

Didi Gregorius probably understood from the get-go that it wouldn’t be easy to replace Derek Jeter in the New York Yankees infield. After all, the former shortstop dubbed the “Captain” was a once-in-a-generation kind of player who was respected by his teammates and worshiped by fans. But even the 25-year-old likely didn’t expect he’d have...Read More The post Slumping...

Amid Continuing Concerns, Yankees Enjoy Laugher Against Red Sox

On Sunday night the Yankees looked at all of us--the fans, the media and the casual observers--and said: “Beware the small sample size.” Sunday’s game was exactly what the team needed after they went 1-4 in their first five games and looked terrible in the process. In Sunday’s game, the Yankees batted around in the first inning, scoring seven runs, including three on home...

WPIX runs out of ads during Red Sox-Yankees marathon

Friday night’s Red Sox-Yankees reminded people why they get impatient with baseball. With a game that went 19 innings and lasted six hours and 49 minutes, it went long enough for two games and then some. New York’s WPIX was airing its first Yankees game since 1998, so you’d think it would be ready for almost anything, but apparently it wasn’t prepared for it to go past 17...

Affleck, Damon to make wife-swapping Yankees film
