The Gardner extension and the Bailey signing apparently were moves to obscure the Yankee ownership's unwillingness to bid on Cuban talent

Well, it happened, just as we feared.Saturday, the Yankees signed shoulder-weary RHP Andrew Bailey for $2.5 million, and Sunday they re-upped with the grinder, Brett Gardner, for four years - miniature bursts of spending by a franchise brain trust that spent the last month rattling a cup and begging for nickels. Today, we get a better sense of the timing: The Retrieval Empire is...

Bailey could be final piece to Yankees' title run

With the famous "exit sandman" campaign for Mariano Rivera coming to a close last season, the bullpen for the New York Yankees has now become their biggest question mark. With the signing of ex-closer Andrew Bailey to a Minor League deal today, however, this move could serve as the final piece of the puzzle for the club's next championship.Bailey, a two-time All Star...

After saying there is absolutely no more money for signings, the Yankees sign Andrew Bailey

Don't get me wrong: I'm not complaining. Whenever Hal 9000 spends his hard-earned money*, I'm OK with it. The Yankees yesterday picked up former stopper Andrew Bailey, who is recovering from a torn-up shoulder. He might be ready by August. They spent $2.5 million on him.This comes as the brain trust had been claiming for weeks that there was no more money in the till...

Yankees sign Andrew Bailey

In an effort to stack as many bullpen arms as possible, the Yankees have agreed to terms on a minor league deal with reliever Andrew Bailey. Should Bailey pitch for the big league club, his deal would be worth $2.5 million with a 2015 option plus a buyout. The deal was first reported by Buster Olney.

Hanrahan Throwing At 'Seventy-Five Percent'

(Photo By Elise Amendola)Remember Joel Hanrahan? The next great Red Sox closer? The hard-throwing right-hander—acquired from the Pirates—was supposed to be the 'answer' at the end of the bullpen after Andrew Bailey went down. Unfortunately, Hanrahan himself was limited to just nine appearances last season due to injuries. Hello, Koji Uehara! After having Tommy John and...

Does Andrew Bailey make sense for the Mets?

It seems that the Mets are done spending big money this offseason, although the Stephen Drew saga is not over. But, that doesn’t rule out some minor league or low money deals to help bolster the rotation and bullpen. One of the names that the Mets should target is Andrew Bailey, who was non-tender by the Red Sox in December. The former closer of the A’s was traded to Boston where...

Fifteen Teams Have An Interest In Andrew Bailey

(USATSI Photo)According to multiple sources, upwards of 15 teams have shown interest in injury-prone reliever Andrew Bailey—who was non-tendered by the Red Sox. Bailey (who will turn 30 at the end of May) never got untracked in Carmine Hose—appearing in just 49 games over two years in Boston. His 4.91 ERA, 1.455 WHIP, lack of control and multiple injuries plagued him his whole...

Rumor: Over 15 teams interested in Andrew Bailey

When a pitcher who missed the entire second half of 2013 and will likely not pitch again until May of 2014 has more than half the Major League teams interested in signing him, he must have something left in the tank. That is probably what general managers must think of relief pitcher Andrew Bailey, formerly of the Boston Red Sox and Oakland Athletics. MLB Trade Rumors' Tim Dierkes...

Non Tender Targets

As yesterdays non tender deadline passed, many interesting free agents were dumped into the player pool. A number of these could make sense on a Cubs team that has more holes in it than a piece of Swiss cheese.

Sox Cut Loose Andrew Bailey And Ryan Kalish

Ryan Kalish With A Young Fan (FN Photo)As expected, the Red Sox non-tendered reliever Andrew Bailey—meaning, as of today, he is a free agent who can sign with any team. Boston also non-tendered outfielder Ryan Kalish—who has suffered myriad injuries over the last three years. Kalish was once thought to be the 'heir apparent' in right field, but was hit with bad luck at...

Andrew Bailey Could Be History By Tuesday

(Mike Petraglia/WEEI.com)The Red Sox have a decision to make on reliever Andrew Bailey. By the Monday deadline, they need to determine if it's worth tendering him a contract. If they do, he can negotiate a salary or go to arbitration—and would likely get about $4 million for 2014. The problem is, his surgically-repaired right shoulder will keep him out until around the All...

The 2013 Boston Red Sox had a tough time in the bullpen as the season started. They lost two closers, Andrew Bailey and Joel Hanrahan, as well as setup man Daniel Bard to injuries. Until Koji Uehara took over the closer’s role and Craig Breslow and Junichi Tazawa grew into very solid setup men, it looked like the Red Sox would continue to have trouble holding onto leads late in...
