YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Girardi says Ellsbury could be out more than a month

View image | gettyimages.com We finally have an injury update, albeit vague, on Jacoby Ellsbury. Ryan Hatch reports that Girardi was quoted in regards to Ellsbury, “I would hope we would have him within a month. That would be my hope. I can’t tell you that we will.” Ellsbury went down with a right knee sprain on May 19 in Washington. He suffered it swinging on a pitch from...

Alex Rodriguez is Letting His Performance Do The Talking

Cheater. Steroid user. Bad example for Major League Baseball. These are all names that New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has been called since he was suspended by the MLB for all of last season in January of 2014. Anybody who follows or is a fan of the great game of baseball has an opinion on the controversial slugger. Rodriguez returned to the Yankees in March for Spring...

Is John Sterling's home run call for Slade Heathcott his worst ever?

John Sterling coming up with his home run calls?One of the things about writing this blog is that I don't really know what will strike a chord (or a nerve!) with people, and what will be greeted with nothing but crickets. With a few exceptions, that is!For some reason, any thing I write on Michael Kay or John Sterling will generally get a huge number of page views. One of our top...

A-Rod passes Gehrig on RBI list

No other player in American League history has amassed more RBI than Alex Rodriguez. A-Rod’s three-run homer off Chris Young in the third inning of Wednesday’s game moved him past Lou Gehrig and into sole possession of third place on the all-time RBI list with 1,995. Only Barry Bonds (1,996) and Hank Aaron (2,297) stand in front of him, who of course spent their entire careers...

Yankees' Girardi Plays It Safe with Warren But Takes Risk With Health of Bullpen

Questioning Joe Girardi is not exactly high on my list of things to do as I tend to give the Yankees manager the benefit of the doubt. After all, 750 wins doesn’t happen without some skill, even if it’s the skill of knowing when you don’t have to meddle.Still, after he pulled Adam Warren in Tuesday night’s game after 6.1 IP and only 88 pitches, I’ll admit I raised an eyebrow...

My thoughts on the Bernie Williams ceremony -- and yes, I think his number should have been retired

Pete Campbell's Chip N' Dip!I Squawked Sunday night about New York Post columnist Phil Mushnick's (incorrect) ire over Bernie Williams Night being held the Sunday before Memorial Day. But I didn't write about the ceremony itself. There was good reason for that.That is because I was at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens on Sunday, checking out the excellent "Mad Men" exhibit...

Heathcott and Lindgren: At last! Reasons to watch

Memorable day, Memorial Day. The Evils scored a zillion runs and played Paddington Bear with their stat lines, whacking the jerks who embarrassed us last week. No complaints here. Chase Headley entered the game batting .242 and finished at .255. You'd think he was having a good year. One thing I'd almost forgotten about laughers: You don't feel compelled to watch every pitch...

A Memorial Day tradition: Let's celebrate the Yankees' new Bore Four

Hate to say this, but the Yankees right now are not only baseball's most boring team, but they might be the most boring entity in corporate America, after IBM and the company that imports those back-scratchers from China.Typically, they score two runs early, and then... nothing... nada... zilch. Turn the channel, and reach for the bottle of hair tonic. Therefore, on this Memorial...

Core Four Honors Bernie, Watches Yankees Fall Back to .500

Not even the presence of the Core Four + Bernie Williams could propel the Yankees to a win last night against the Texas Rangers.Derek Jeter, in his first appearance at Yankee Stadium since his walk off single last September, was joined by the rest of the recent Yankees dynasty in celebrating an all too often overlooked Williams, who had his #51 retired by the Yankees and a plaque...

Six losses in a row... nine out of ten... a .500 team... the Yankees

Well, here we are - right back where we started. We're like those doomed campers in the Blair Witch Project, hiking all day in the forest and finding ourselves back here... same wins as losses... except that now, Chase Headley is batting second. Gahhhh...  An old team, hoping for miracles, watching the glaciers melt, waiting for a savior to rise up from Trenton, or Charleston...

New York Yankees: Defensive Woes Impeding Team Success

At 22-21 on the year, the New York Yankees are in second place in the AL East and are only one and a half games behind Tampa Bay, the division leaders. New York’s front office had a clear plan this offseason: find free agents who could produce at a reasonable price and grind out wins with pitching and defense. The refocusing of their strategy of overpaying for offensive stars...

On this day in Yankees history – 1936

On May 24, 1936 in a game against the Athletics, Yankees second baseman Tony Lazzeri becomes the first Major League player to hit two grand slams in one game as the Yanks annihilate the A’s 25-2. The two salamis also help Lazzeri set an American League record for most RBIs in a game with 11. That month he also set records for most home runs in three consecutive games (6) and...

What was Brian (Fredo) Cashman's worst Yankee move this year? It's not what you think

"I'm smart and I want respect!" -- Brian (Fredo) Cashman Grrrrr. I am irate at the state of the Yankees these days. A little bit more than a quarter of the 2015 Yankees' season is over, and the team is not in a good way. Yes, the Yanks are only 1.5 games out of first place in the American League East, But they have lost five in a row, and nine of their last 10 games, They are only...

The Yankees are succeeding despite the numbers

​ If there’s anything I’ve learned over the past few years, it’s that the AL East is strange. The Boston Red Sox have gone from last to first and back to last. The Toronto Blue Jays are typically supposed to be better than they are, the Tampa Bay Rays consistently exceed expectations regardless of doubts, and the Baltimore Orioles won 96 games last season. Which leaves...

Minor League team cancels 'A-Rod Juice Box Night'

Alex Rodriguez is often the target of slander and jokes. On Friday, it was the Charlotte Stone Crabs, a minor league affiliate of the Rays, who had the Yankees designated hitter in their sights. The Stone Crabs planned to hand out the above pictured juice box which reads “The Sports Drink. 100 % Juiced. Side...Read More

New York Yankees: Slade Heathcott’s wild journey to the big leagues

Yankee fans got some disappointing news this week when it was announced that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury had been placed on the 15-day DL with a knee injury. To that point of the season, the former All-Star had been one of the Yankees’ most productive players, boasting a .324 batting average and a team leading 14 stolen bases. Add that to the fact that the Bronx Bombers have...

New York Yankees: Expectations for Slade Heathcott

After a heartbreaking 8-6 loss to the Nationals via a Ryan Zimmerman two-run, walk-off homerun, the Yankees received more bad news after learning that center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury sprained his right knee and would need a 15-day DL stint.  As a result, the Yankees called up former first round draft pick Slade Heathcott from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.  Once a highly touted...

Is Michael Pineda a true ace?

There is little denying the fact that Michael Pineda has been the best pitcher in the New York Yankees rotation this season. He might have been the best pitcher during his time with the club last season as well. Being the best surrounded by mediocrity might make one the staff ace, but does not necessarily qualify one as a “true ace.” Is Pineda ready to be that type of pitcher...

Missing Ellsbury's Effort & Cursing Beltran's Lack Therof

A 2-7 road trip. As Joe Girardi would say, "It's not what you want." Last night was really frustrating, thanks, in part, to one Carlos Beltran.If he had made any sort of an effort to catch that pop fly in the bottom of the seventh, the Yankees might have gone on to get out of the inning without (what turned out to be) the winning run scoring. He didn't, and the Yankees lost the last...

Yankees receive good and bad injury news

The New York Yankees received some good and then bad news concerning their starting pitchers on the disabled list. Masahiro Tanaka came out of Monday’s 29-pitch bullpen session without any issues and could begin a rehab assignment later this week while Ivan Nova is move one step closer to appearing in some minor league games. Unfortunately, the bad news was that Chase Whitley...

Alex Rodriguez not bothered by Jorge Posada’s remarks

Former New York Yankees catcher Jorge Posada has released a book recently. In his tour promoting said book, Posada indicated that he doesn’t find it fair that players have been known to cheat, including former teammates Roger Clemens and Alex Rodriguez. “I don’t think it’s fair for the guys that have been in the Hall of Fame that played the game clean,” Posada said on...

Yankees are back and better than we all thought

Everyone loves a good underdog story. When a team that hasn’t been very good in a few years and didn’t look like anything close to a contender when the season started comes out of the gate hot, baseball fans have found their new favorite team to rally around. This year, no team embodies that scrappy, can-do spirit like the New York Yankees. Yes, the little team that could...
