As if Yankee fans need another reason to vilify Alex Rodriguez, along comes this little tid-bid of info coming from Brian Cashman on Wednesday afternoon.

New York Yankees Should be All in on Yoan Moncada

With Brian Cashman seemingly fully in control of personnel decisions, the New York Yankees have continued a calculated approach towards a youth movement this winter. Signing Cuban super-prospect, Yoan Moncada, would be the crown jewel of the off-season and make him immediately the top prospect in the Yankees’ system. Each transaction thus far has been an obvious attempt at making...

A-Rod thinks Yankees third base job is his to lose

Despite the Yankees signing Chase Headley to a four-year, $52 million contract this winter, Alex Rodriguez thinks the club’s starting third base job is his to lose. Yep – the 39-year old who didn’t play at all in 2014 and hasn’t played 100 games in the field since 2010 is assuming that he’s going into Spring Training with a starting role at the hot corner. Hold me. Newsday...

Yankee fans are experiencing the nuclear winter of Brian Cashman, and still waiting for the bomb to hit

I cannot remember a Yankee winter like this, when the team has been so intricately fine-tuned by a general manager. There were the bombshell deals - the Rickie Henderson trade(s), and for Tino, and for Paul O'Neill - but this has been a series of micro-tweaks, each difficult to analyze. Shawn Kelley to San Diego for Johnny Barbato? WTF? After mourning the loss of Kelley's horse head...

New York Yankees: Top 10 Prospects

In most years, the Yankees prospect list is pretty thin, with maybe two or three guys who could make a decent impact in the major leagues, and another couple of guys who could be role players. But Brian Cashman realizes that the Yankees have been getting older, thus he’s started to emphasize player development. He’s stockpiling the minor league system with young talent while...

Yankees finally have the prospects to make something happen

The Yankees are unlikely to trade for Cole Hamels. But you know what? At this point, they probably could. They’ve got Didi Gregorius, a young shortstop the Phillies like. They’ve got catchers, premium young arms, some intriguing bats. “We’re much deeper now,” Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. “We’re much more flexible. We’re younger, more diverse.” Of...

In recreating his father's legacy, did Hal Steinbrenner just pull a Buhner?

For years now, I've endured this recurring tragic-comedy nightmare that Hal Steinbrenner is fated to relive his dad's up-and-down record as owner of the Yankees.If so, that includes the 14-Year Barf - from the early 80s into the mid-90s-  when the Yankees consistently sucked, despite burning money on free agents.

2015 New Year’s Resolution for the Yankees’ franchise

Individuals pronounce resolutions every New Year’s Day, so why can’t an entity like the New York Yankees do it as well?

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

He'll walk away from $61 million clams, plus incentives, over the next three years. He'll accept...

Despite assurances to the contrary, the Yankee fan-base still clings to the Scherzer delusion

Yesterday, Evil Empire Prez Randy Levine reiterated what GM Brian Cashman has been saying since Thanksgiving: The Bronx Bottomers will not bid one fat nickel on Mr. Free Agent Fancypants Max Scherzer. Nope. Not prudent. The new Yankee motto: A penny saved is a pennant earned.Today, in lieu of a fourth and fifth starter, I say the Yankiverse must transcend pettiness and start pondering...

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman hasn’t ruled out the possibility of bringing back closer David Robertson in 2015.
