“Thuhhh Yankees Win!”…the Trade Deadline!

Proclaiming teams to be “winners” of anything but actual baseball games is usually silly and worthless. Sure, the Cardinals were way more successful with Lou Brock than the Reds were with Ernie Broglio. The Yankees probably didn’t miss Jason Jarvis, Mike Gordon and Marty Janzen much while David Cone was winning them World Series games in the Bronx. And teams like the Red Sox...

With rotation hurting, Yankees bringing up top prospect Severino for start

New York Yankees to promote top prospect Luis Severino after standing pat at trade deadline

The 4 p.m. trade deadline came and went on Friday, with the New York Yankees among the least active. However, sometimes the answer to a team’s biggest need comes internally. General manager Brian Cashman, whose lone move was the acquisition of Dustin Ackley from the Seattle Mariners, announced that right-hander Luis Severino will make his next start in the Majors, with the date...

A big shoe drops today, and the mystery of Dustin Ackley will be explained

Something will happen today. It must happen. I'm sort of dreading it. Today, we will learn why, why, why the Yankees sandbagged themselves into a corner in their obsessive quest for somebody named Dustin Ackley.  I spent last night trying to figure it out. Never did. Ackley's nickname should be "The Sphinx." His presence as a Yankee - if he remains one after today - is a dark...

Yankees finally get Dustin Ackley

The Yankees had been chasing Dustin Ackley for a while. I don’t know exactly how long the pursuit had gone on, but I remember rumors around the 2013 winter meetings, and they’ve popped up from time to time since. Somewhere, in the back of his mind, Brian Cashman maintained his interest in Ackley, and now […]

New York Yankees: Caleb Cotham recalled from AAA

The New York Yankees reliever carousel continued Wednesday afternoon, as pitcher Caleb Cotham was recalled from AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in place of Chris Capuano, who was designated for assignment earlier today. Cotham is the latest bullpen arm to join the pinstripes, as General Manager Brian Cashman has utilized minor league options to his advantage, as he’s expanded his 25...

It's Cashnado Week in the Yankiverse, but while we imagine who the Yankees might get, let's also ponder what we might have to give up

Sunday, the all-star mega-superteam Royals banished three sprites to Ohio for the great and mighty Johnny Cueto - the Koufaxian Hall of Famer, now 7-6 on the season. This prompted a loud chorus from the Yankee Blogger Rapid Response Teams, demanding that Brian Cashman pull off a counter-deal. Shriekers gonna shriek, dealers gonna deal. The official scream line is that we need...

Yankees Continue To Win Series, Must Keep Eye On Division Foes

The New York Yankees are pure fun to watch right now. Whether it’s winning close 1-run games (they played in five straight coming out of the All-Star Break and won four of them) or blowing out the opposition (they won three of their last four games and each win was three runs or higher) the Yankees are finding ways to win series.Excluding the series against the Angels, which concluded...

Hot Yankees Need To Avoid Letdown on 10 Game Trip

It's been the story of the Yankees season so far. Just when they seem to be on a roll, something happens. Thursday the Yankees loaded the bases with none out in the bottom of the first and the next two hitters failed to advance the runners. It looked as if something was about to happen.    But Chase Headley, who has struggled all season at the plate and in the field, delivered...

Reality check: The Yankee resurgence is still based on the abysmal AL East

With a five-game lead in the loss column, the Yankees now have only injuries to fear

This is Buck Is Stuck Week in the AL East, a series where the Yankees can - on paper, at least - turn the rest of the O's season into a quest for that horrible, terrible, wretched one-game Wild Card birth. If we split the next two, Baltimore leaves NY five down in the loss column. If we sweep them - ahhh, mama - they leave seven back... with only eight games remaining against us...

Brendan Ryan: Short Term Hero But Not Long Term Answer For Yankees

I’ll be honest. Despite Brendan Ryan's Tuesday night performance, I still don’t think he’s the team's best option.Ryan produced a 2-out double that scored Didi Gregorius from 1B, in what proved to be the winning run in the Yankees 3-2 win over division rival Baltimore.Brian Cashman, who has to be feeling vindicated given the results of the game, obviously disagrees, because...

Don’t expect the Yankees to make any moves before trade deadline

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman doesn’t expect to make any moves before the July 31 trade deadline. Cashman likes the make-up of the Yankees, who own a four-game lead in the AL East. “There is a strong possibility that there might not be anything that makes sense for us,” Cashman said. “I do like the chemistry in this clubhouse. I do like the personnel...

Refsnyder Shows Potential & Problems as Yankees Earn Series Win Against Red Sox

The people asked and the New York Yankees brain trust delivered. On Saturday, the Yankees #5 prospect, 2B Rob Refsnyder, made his major league debut against the Boston Red Sox. As Stephen Drew’s generally ineffective season continues, many Yankees fans are looking to Refsnyder and wondering if he wouldn’t be a better alternative. The 24 year old, who batted .364 in Spring Training...

Does Spending More Lead to Winning More in the MLB?

My thoughts on the state of the Yankees, the A-rod milestone deals, and other assorted shenanigans

Looks like I missed two of the best Yankee games this year, in Friday's and Saturday's epic walkoff wins, the first two walkoff wins of 2015 for the Bombers! Back in 2009, I was at the first "pie game' that May, and the Yanks seemed to start to have an aura again about them. That aura translated into ring #27.I am still not sold on this current team being a World Series winner, even...

GM Cashman not worried about Ellsbury being scratched

Before Thursday's rehab game, New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury was scratched.This, however, isn't a big deal according to general manager Brian Cashman. Here's what he told the New York Post about the scratch:“He is going through a spring-training-game-like-progression with all the sprints, and … slowly getting his legs back. All good.

Banuelos is looking like the one that got away

Last winter, after Brian Cashman traded him, a few of the Yankee "prospect" blogs conveniently downsized their assessments of Manny Banuelos. He went from being a big-hope-for-a-comeback to a never-gonna-make-it. Excitement was building over the Yankees big acquisition: David Carpenter!The fact that longtime Yankee executive Gordon Blakely had jumped to Atlanta - where he orchestrated...

New York Yankees trade rumors: starting pitching edition

The Yankees have been scouting Mike Leake of the Cincinnati Reds. The New York Yankees are 11-5 so far in June and currently find themselves one game back of the Tampa Bay Rays for first place in the AL East. Despite the fact that the Yankees have sat atop the AL East for the majority of the season, their starting pitching has been shaky throughout. Their recent success and the...

Shocker! Brian Cashman's winter trade with the Marlins was a disaster -- and helped beat the Yankees tonight

After I finished up Tuesday night track with my running club, I noticed this text from Squawker Jon: "Eovaldi gave up 8 runs in 2/3 inning." To which I thought, "Brian Cashman sure is a supergenius, isn't he?"Tuesday night's game against the Miami Marlins was a matchup of two pitchers Cashman traded for each other -- Nathan Eovaldi and David Phelps.

Let's acknowledge last night's great Cashmanic victory over Oakland

Kudos go out to Brian Cashman for his tireless work in last night's big Yankee win* over the A's.  He laid the groundwork two winters ago, signing Carlos Beltran to a three-year deal. The Belt Man, who is slowly salvaging his season, won last night's game with a clutch two-run HR, his fourth of the year. Carlos is now batting .246, up about 80 points over a month ago. Watch out...

Why Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi have such faith in Stephen Drew.Why does Drew still have a job? His current numbers are .177/.264/.345. Those are the lowest numbers of any second baseman in the American League. They are also lower than any other second baseman...
