YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Yankees double header shutout sweep

You read that correctly boys and girls the New York Yankees successfully achieved their first double header shutout sweep since April 9th of 1987. Their 3-0 and 2-0 wins over the Cubs earlier this week gave the team a refresher on what it feels like to blow another team out of the water not once but two times back-to-back. Surely this felt good for the Bombers and their staff, bringing...

New York’s Starting Rotation Will Lead the Yankees Back to the Playoffs

Can CC Sabathia regain his velocity? – Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement/USA Today Sports During the offseason, the Yankees main goal was to upgrade a porous offense that was ultimately their undoing in 2013. Yes, Robinson Cano left for Seattle, and Alex Rodriguez was suspended for the entire year, but New York acquired catcher Brian McCann, outfielders Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury...

Last Night Proves Triple Play Is Sabathia's Best Friend

It's hard to believe that CC Sabathia has been on the mound during the last three triple plays the New York Yankees have turned.  After the third one last night, my lately failing memory came to life and I remembered that Sabathia was pitching during the odd one that occurred last year. I'm sure you remember it:Yes, it was that one, on April 12, 2013, the one that was scored...

New York Yankees Go Around The Horn For Triple Play

New York Yankees third baseman Yangervis Solarte is quietly becoming a mainstay for the Bronx Bombers with his consistent bat to start the 2014 season. However, this time around Solarte did it with his glove starting the 5-4-3 around the horn triple-play in the second inning of the Yankees tilt with the Tampa Bay Rays. Even more ironic than the rare feat is that C.C. Sabathia has...

WATCH: Yankees turn first triple play of 2014 MLB season

For a pitcher, there is no better gift than a triple play.  Two on, no out, big inning pending.  Then it all goes away thanks to tags, throws, and gloves.  Watch as the New York Yankees clean up the 2nd inning for ace C.C. Sabathia by going around the horn, Yangervis Solarte, to Brian Roberts, to Scott Sizemore, who made a nice scoop in the dirt.  That’s 5-4-3 if you’re scoring...

What version of Mark Teixeira can the Yankees tolerate?

Mark Teixeira can return to the Yankees as early as Sunday, but return as what? He has fallen – physically and statistically – but to where? The offensive identity of Teixeira lingers as a key question to this season. With recent imports such as Carlos Beltran, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Alfonso Soriano present, it might not be necessary for Teixeira to be a huge weightlifter...

Tanaka and Pineda are about to become THE NEXT BIG THING

It's already happened to me: A start by CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova or Hiroki Kuroda has become a yawner. What's the point? We know what will happen. CC will give up three, maybe four runs, and he will keep us in games, until he hits an iceberg in August, and needs a rest. Nova will throw well one day, then get bombed. Kuroda will be lights out, until Joe leaves him in too long...

A Comprehensive List of Every Nickname Joe Girardi has for the Yankees

Joe Girardi likes his nicknames. Sure, some of them may not be the most inventive. It could simply be something as easy as taking a first or last name and adding a "y" or "ie" to the end of it. But every now and again, he comes up with something a little more inspiring. There's Dean Anna, who is nicknamed "Raccoon" for his prominent nose: ...
