WATCH: Yankees players recreate 'The Sandlot'

Well this is pretty amazing. A handful of the 2015 New York Yankees recreated one of the most iconic scenes in the classic movie "The Sandlot." Are we 100% positive that Ham Porter didn't grow up to be Brian McCann? The resemblance is UnCanny (sorry).

Yankee 2015 colonoscopy continues: There's always a catch

First, a confession: I like Brian McCann. He's a chunk, a lugnut, a goober. He plays hard. He looks mean. He shaves his head, even though he's bald. He got hot last July and showed why we are paying him so much money. Of last year's three free agents, he's the keeper. (The trouble with Ellsbury: Seven years.) Last month, McCann said something that should be digested as...

New York’s Battle: Mets Vs. Yankees: Position By Position

The question going into the 2015 season around New York is which team is going to have the better season. Is it the young Mets who every year seem to have higher expectations but fail to reach them? Or is it the old Yankees who everyone is doubting because of their track record of injuries. So, let’s go position by position to see which team will run New York this summer. Catcher...

Clip and save: Brian McCann says he plans to hit to the opposite field this year

How Yankees tried to beat the over-shift last year.For the record: The disease of the 2014 Yankees was not pitching, fielding or charging too low for tickets. The Bronx Bombers simply had nobody who knew how to drive in a run. The team RBI leader was Brian McCann. He had 75.That's no misprint. The Yankee team leader had 75 - seventyfukkinfive - RBIs.In other words, we created a new...

Player Profile #176: Brian McCann | C/1B | NYY

Brian McCann is a sellout — for power, that is. Since McCann broke into the league in 2005, he’s caught 9,709.1 innings. That’s the third-most in the league over that span behind Yadier Molina (10,533) and A.J. Pierzynski (10,437). But unlike Molina, McCann’s offense hasn’t gotten better with age. In his early years (2005-2008) McCann regularly had 11-13% strikeout rates...

Can’t Buy Me Championships

It’s been a long-running thought in sports—particularly baseball—that the team with the most money always wins it all. While we know that’s not entirely true, those that spend freely and carelessly on talented players should be able to compete on a yearly basis. However, this wasn’t the case for the New York Yankees in 2014. Despite committing hundreds of millions of...

Will the Yankees see light at the end of the tunnel?

The last two years were certainly a struggle for the New York Yankees. In 2013, the Bronx Bombers finished with a record of 85-77, placing them tied for third place in the American League East. This past year, the Yanks finished  84-78, placing them second place in the east. From the past two years, we see that the Yankees have had decent records but it wasn’t enough to make the...

Yankees Eliminated: More Painful This Year Than Last Year

When the 2014 Yankees season began, not making the playoffs for the second straight year was the furthest thing from my mind. After all, this was a team that had won 85 games in 2013 with journeymen like Jayson Nix and farmhands like Zoilo Almonte.  Now, with such additions as Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury, it seemed a shoe-in that they would surpass that mark and return to...
