YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Yankees and the Stanford Marshmallow Experiment

My wife is a school psychologist here in the Pittsburgh area, so naturally I learn about the profession and the field. One test of interest, and some amusement, that she’s discussed involves children and the concept of delayed gratification. Testers use all sorts of sugar-laden incentives for the evaluation. The tester presents a child with a cookie or chocolate or something else...

Brian Cashman's former mistress, Louise Neathway, was detained in New Jersey on Tuesday. The one, strange off-the-field news story during Brian Cashman's decorated Yankees career just won't go away. Louise Neathway, the ex-Cashman mistress who extorted thousands of dollars from Cashman during a long saga with the then-married executive,...

WATCH: Yankees' Gleyber Torres gets first Triple-A hit in RailRiders debut

Yankees' top prospect had a good first game playing for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders on Tuesday night. NEW YORK -- Gleyber Torres' first Triple-A game was nothing extraordinary ... nothing that screamed this kid is one of baseball's best of the best prospects. The top guy in the Yankees' very deep farm system did fare well in his debut...

Yankees Lose As Bullpen Spoils It For Montgomery

Joe Girardi has made some pretty dumb moves in his managerial career with the Yankees. A lot of them have involved the bullpen. However, I wouldn't be so quick to blame him for last night's loss.It was pretty clear that Jordan Montgomery had begun to run out of steam, especially after the rope Eric Hosmer hit off him, following Lorenzo Cain's home run. It was only a one-run lead...

DotF: Torres makes Triple-A debut, Austin has big rehab game

A few quick notes before we get to the game action: I missed this yesterday, but SS Thairo Estrada was included in Baseball Prospectus’ Monday Ten Pack (subs. req’d). “His defensive ability and versatility give him a floor as a utility player, and he is capable of hitting well enough to develop into a regular,” said the write-up. The Yankees have signed RHP Kaleb Ort out...

Yankees’ overworked bullpen blows it for Jordan Montgomery

While the Yankees’ starting rotation looked to right itself over the last couple of weeks, Joe Girardi has had to rely more and more on what he called a “taxed” bullpen. On Tuesday, the workload caught up with the Yankees in a 6-2 loss to the Royals in The Bronx, as Adam Warren couldn’t protect...

Yankees honor victims of Manchester bombing attack by playing 'God Save The Queen'

The sports world has offered thoughts and support to victims of Monday night’s bombing attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, with stars like Manchester City’s Yaya Touré stepping forward with donations. The support has crossed the Atlantic. One of the more interesting stateside examples comes from the New York Yankees, who played the United Kingdom’s...

How Yankees gave to disabled kids — who gave right back

Amy Palmiero-Winters and her group of young athletes from the One Step Ahead Foundation have had to overcome a lot. Tuesday, for a change, was a day to forget about the physical disabilities they may have. It was already supposed to be a memorable day for them, a trip to the USA Track and Field...

Gleyber Torres officially putting the heat on Chase Headley

Gleyber Torres didn’t last long at Double-A Trenton before the Yankees decided to move their top prospect to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, where he was set to make his debut on Tuesday against Columbus. The next step will be more challenging for the infielder, but Joe Girardi isn’t ruling anything out. “As I tell these young kids...

Aaron Hicks has been working out of first base, and hopefully the Yankees won’t need him there

All winter long, I and many others said there was no way the Yankees would get worse production from first base this year than what Mark Teixeira gave them last year. Teixeira hit .204/.292/.362 (76 wRC+) last season. And so far this season, Yankees first basemen are hitting .164/.276/.295 (59 wRC+), and that’s with Chris Carter hitting a home run last night. Welp. First base has...

The Yankees are honoring Aaron Judge with his own section of seats

Rookie outfielder Aaron Judge is doing some unreal things for the Yankees this season. Through 39 games, the 25-year-old behemoth is hitting .321/.421/.707 with an MLB-best 15 home runs and 30 RBI. (And that’s despite hitting just one home run in the last week.) Even though Judge’s power has tapered off a bit recently, the Yankees found a way to honor him by installing “The...

Aaron Judge gets new fan section of Yankee Stadium named after him

Aaron Judge is a rising superstar, and the Yankees, who have seen numerous stars come and go in franchise history, are well aware of that fact. They also seem to be embracing it, and are beginning to make efforts to send a message that he could be the face of the team going forward. Both the Yankees and the New York media have already used and exhausted “Judge” in every headline...

Yankees honor Aaron Judge with ‘The Judge’s Chambers’ seats

Aaron Judge has taken the baseball world by storm in 2017. His New York Yankees are certainly not missing the chance to take advantage of their latest phenomenon. The team has sectioned off a small portion of seats at Yankee Stadium appropriately named “The Judge’s Chambers.” While similar puns have been made, we have to give the Yankees credit for creativity. Judge has been...

Who will be the next great New York Yankee?

During the pre-game ceremony for their May 14th matchup against the Houston Astros, the New York Yankees retired Derek Jeter’s No. 2 jersey. Jeter, affectionately known as “The Captain” helped the Yankees win five World Series championships during his career before retiring from the game in 2014.

New York Yankees: What has happened to Masahiro Tanaka?

The New York Yankees have had a successful first quarter of their 2017 season, but one key contributor has not performed up to his high expectations thus far.  Masahiro Tanaka currently holds a 6.56 earned run average, with 35 runs surrendered in just 48 innings across nine starts.  His fielding independent pitching numbers do not paint a better picture, as his 6.07 FIP show that...

New York Yankees: Time to Take Masahiro Tanaka’s struggles seriously

The month of May has certainly not been kind to New York Yankees top-line starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka. He currently has a 2-2 record in the month, to go along with a not-so-dazzling 10.50 ERA. This disastrous month has, without a doubt, been a surprise to all involved with the Yankees organization. When Tanaka threw a complete game shutout against the Boston Red Sox on April...

Alex Rodriguez is somehow getting weirder

Alex Rodriguez has been acting weird in the public eye for nearly two decades now. For example, you might remembrer when he made out with his own reflection in a photoshoot for Details (!!!) magazine. That was all the way back in 2009, which somehow seems both very long ago and also not that long ago. A-Rod has done some television work over the past few seasons, serving as a studio...
