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

Lately, one of the weirder lines of Yankee Christmas psychobabble goes this way:The Evils are secretly negotiating with Alex Rodgriguez, seeking a "good riddance" lump sum pay-off that will send him off to Brigadoon, or Narnia, or Skaneateles Lake (future pad of Jete), once and for all. He'll walk away from $61 million clams, plus incentives, over the next three years. He'll accept...

It Appears A Yankees Youth Movement Has Begun

When I heard yesterday that Martin Prado had been traded to the Miami Marlins, the first thing I thought was that Rob Refsnyder, the Yankees' highly touted prospect, would definitely get a chance to compete for the 2B job this coming Spring Training. Apparently, I was in the minority.  Everyone else was crying. There were posts of despair all over social media about the loss of...

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...

The towering ho-hum approaches: Chase Headley might re-sign with the Yankees

Here's a holiday thought: If all the world were upended - the rich suddenly poor, the worst suddenly the best - the Yankees won't be much affected. Ah... the beauty of finishing near.500!Here's another: If we sign Chase Headley, we'll be basically rolling out the same rickety dessert tray that finished 12 games out last year. Ah... the poetry of standing still!Last night, Brian Cashman...

Will Yankees choose now or the future?

The Winter Meetings were exceptional if you’re into big signings and huge trades, but not for some fans of the New York Yankees. For many Yankees fans, it was a downer, especially after the previous Friday when they signed Andrew Miller and traded for Didi Gregorius. What the meetings provided for Yankees fans is a wake-up call on how the club will be doing business in the future...

Ruthless and Ruth-less: Was Jeter's farewell tour the last gasp of Yankee loyalty to their players?

For the last two years, the Yankees have done little more than launch farewell tours and hand out plaques to their icons of the '90s. Our pitching was mediocre, the hitting worse, and the brain trust was always first to note that it would NOT blame all those injuries - which is, of course, the spin doctor's way to blame all those injuries.But today, passengers on the NY Titanic face...

Blue Jays 'love' Yankees' David Robertson: Report

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman hasn’t ruled out the possibility of bringing back closer David Robertson in 2015. But since it's starting to sound like the GM feels his team now has enough bullpen depth to handle the workload, it might be a long-shot that Robertson still suits up in the Bronx next season. And the closer might be packing some long johns too. ...

Looks Like It's 'A-Bench' For Alex Rodriguez

Yankee GM Brian Cashman didn't really mince any words. When asked where exactly Alex Rodriguez fit on his 2015 Bronx Embalmers, Cashman said the following: "I avoid actually penciling his name in." Looks like The Centaur will be spending a lot of time riding the pine until he gets the pretty obvious message: Nobody wants you anymore. Cashman alluded to both Chase Headley (likely...
