YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Are A-Rod and Torrie Wilson Done?

I feel bad even bringing this up on Christmas Eve but, and I hope you’re sitting down, Alex Rodriguez is a free man. No, no…the New York Yankees haven’t come to their senses and finally released the three-time American League MVP. Apparently, Rodriguez and his girlfriend, former WWE Diva (and Playboy model) Torrie Wilson, have put a halt to their three-year romance. And I...

New York Yankees: Off-season analysis

The Yankees have finally re-signed Chase Headley, who was the best third baseman on the market, to a four-year deal. Headley is a great player for the Yankees to have as he brings a switch-hitting bat to the lineup and plays solid defense. He played well when he was with the Yankees last year, which is one of the reasons why the Yankees decided to give in and give him a four-year...

Derek Jeter Partied With 30 Women Sunday Night (No Hannah Davis)

  So I guess Derek Jeter is really feeling this whole retirement thing. Thus far, far he’s set up The Players’ Tribune to give athletes a “voice” and copyeditors a job. Oh, and he’s allegedly partying with a ton of women too. According to Page Six, Jeter rented out a restaurant in the Meatpacking District on Sunday so he could watch the Seahawks-Cardinals game with like...

Jeter parties with 30 model-like women?

If a Page Six report is to be believed and the details prove accurate, Derek Jeter, who maintained an incredibly low profile during his 20-year, big league career under the bright lights in the big city of New York, may be letting loose a bit as he eases into retirement life. According to the New...Read More The post Derek Jeter allegedly parties with 30 ‘model-like women’ at...

Rob Refsnyder or Jose Pirela for Yankees’ second baseman?

Let’s assume that the New York Yankees are serious about having Rob Refsnyder and Jose Pirela battle it out in spring training to become the team's next starting second baseman. Who is better suited for the position if they both have reasonably similar spring performances?Refsnyder comes with the prospect tag, ranking #6 on MLB.com’s top 20 Yankees' minor leaguers, while Pirela...

Dear all you folks who claim the Yankees will "disappear" A-Rod: If so, who is the DH?

Lately, one of the weirder lines of Yankee Christmas psychobabble goes this way:The Evils are secretly negotiating with Alex Rodgriguez, seeking a "good riddance" lump sum pay-off that will send him off to Brigadoon, or Narnia, or Skaneateles Lake (future pad of Jete), once and for all. He'll walk away from $61 million clams, plus incentives, over the next three years. He'll accept...

Berra, Mantle Both Winners on Sunday

While Hanna-Barbera has maintained that their popular cartoon character Yogi Bear is not named after the popular New York Yankees catcher…”Yogi Berra” the racehorse clearly is. Matter of fact, the three-year-old colt is actually owned by Jessica Steinbrenner, the daughter of the late Yankees owner, and the man who hired Berra to manage the team back in 1984, George Steinbrenner...

Are The New York Yankees Ready For 2015?

The off-season and New York Yankees go better together than ugly on a pig or butter on bread. It seems like every winter, a big time deal is made that brings a superstar to the Bronx. This year, we have yet to see a blockbusting headline come out of Yankee Stadium. Make no mistake about it Brian Cashman has completed trades that fans question, but a triple digit contract hasn...

New York Yankees Retooling in Alternative Fashion

The New York Yankees are in the process of transitioning out the old and bringing in the new. With the acquisitions of shortstop Didi Gregorius and hard-throwing right-hander Nathan Eovaldi, it’s clear the Yankees are in a transition phase, attempting to field a younger and more athletic team. Both of these players are nowhere near finished products, but they are players that...

It Appears A Yankees Youth Movement Has Begun

When I heard yesterday that Martin Prado had been traded to the Miami Marlins, the first thing I thought was that Rob Refsnyder, the Yankees' highly touted prospect, would definitely get a chance to compete for the 2B job this coming Spring Training. Apparently, I was in the minority.  Everyone else was crying. There were posts of despair all over social media about the loss of...

So long, Preston Claiborne: Go forth and grow your beard

In May of 2013, the plucky, irrepressible Yankees were the surprise team of the AL East, and yet - amazingly - some naysayers remained. The pitching staff was reeling from injuries. We were beyond Cesar Cabral and entering Vidal Nuno. If not for the power hitting duo of Vernon Wells and Travis Hafner, all would be lost. That's when the Yankee brain trust turned to a name that, frankly...

Yankees Send Martin Prado, David Phelps To Marlins In Five-Player Trade

NEW YORK — The Yankees acquired pitcher Nathan Eovaldi, outfielder Garrett Jones and minor league pitcher Domingo German from the Miami Marlins on Friday for versatile Martin Prado and pitcher David Phelps. Eovaldi, a right-hander who turns 25 in February, was acquired by the Marlins in July 2012 as part of the deal that sent All-Star shortstop Hanley...

The San Diego Padres have been the most surprising team of the offseason, making three blockbuster trades to become a contender. But the Miami Marlins are also making some intriguing moves, following through on their promise to field a contending team after signing Giancarlo Stanton to a gigantic 13-year, $225 million contract. The Marlins acquired infielder Martin Prado from the...

It’s the last weekend before Christmas, and everyone is scrambling to finish up their holiday shopping, including Major League teams, apparently. So in between the flurry of the 42 trades made by the Padres this morning, the Yankees and Marlins have also reportedly struck a deal. According to Jack Curry, the Yankees have traded Martin […]

Good news: Randy Levine says Yankees unlikely to add lavish salary

We’ve heard that the New York Yankees would not spend lavishly this offseason quite frequently from general manager Brian Cashman, and Thursday the Bombers’ president Randy Levine echoed those statements in an interview with Newsday’s David Lennon."We're always out there looking, but it has to be tempered by the reality of the organization," Levine said.

Yankees GM: Alex Rodriguez To Serve As Full-Time Designated Hitter

NEW YORK — Alex Rodriguez faces a diminished role in his return to the New York Yankees, who have stripped A-Rod of his third-base job and plan to limit his role to full-time designated hitter — at most. General manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that A-Rod’s days as an everyday fielder are over in the Bronx and Chase Headley will start at third after...

Cashman: A-Rod now Yankees’ full-time designated hitter

The 36-year-old left-hander agreed Tuesday to a $5 million, one-year contract. He started last season with Boston and had a 4.55 ERA in 28 relief appearances. He was released July 1 and signed with Colorado three days later but never made it to the majors with...

Thoughts On The Headley Signing

"Headley is deadly!"We heard this phrase a lot last year after Chase Headley was traded to the Yankees last season. However, now that he has signed a free agent deal with the team, I am worried that it will turn into something more along the lines of "Headley's contract is deadly!"Four years/$51 million includes one year too many for a player with a history of back problems who hit...

Jorge Posada bilked out of $11 million in 'jaw-dropping' money scam: Report

Former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has reportedly lost $11 million in a money-management scam that his lawyers have labeled "jaw-dropping." The Puerto Rican catcher, once worth $117 million, was approached by a pair of Cuban-American men in 1999 who targeted Latin American baseball stars.
