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...

ESPN has hilarious tagline regarding 3 underachieving Yankees

Jason Whitney ESPN New York didn’t beat around the bush when labeling Mark Teixeira, Brian McCann and of course, Alex Rodriguez. The popular sports website put a hilarious tagline on the three overpaid and underachieving New York Yankees. “The Three Stooges,” was the tagline ESPN New York placed on the three Yankees players and it couldn’t be more […] Sports-Kings - The...

Nelson Cruz? Of course! Why didn't we think of that?

Nick Carfardo, one of the Globe's gaggle of go-to Gammonites, says Prince Hal and Bathhouse Brian will be hot into the bidding war for Nelson Cruz, based on his 2014 contract season numbers and the fact that he is one of the few free agents old enough to remember Fawn Hall and Ollie North's shredding parties.Cruz would be a perfect fit for the Yankees next year because:1.

The Yankees could go with a six man rotation at firstbase

You know they say: The key to baseball is firstbasing, firstbasing, firstbasing! In fact, during Yankee blowouts, John Sterling takes pains to note that tomorrow's game will be entirely different, because both teams will field a new firstbaseman. Well, at least the Yankees will. Which brings us to Brian Cashman's latest revelation: Next season, Al Rodriguez might move across...

Should we even bother hate Boston or Buck Showalter any more?

The Redsocks treated Jeter so nicely that I'm not sure it's worth wasting valuable bile on them next year.Same with Showalter: He could have walked Jeter in that final Yankee Stadium game. There was one out, a man on second, and the human GIDP known as Brian McCann following Jeter in the order. A lot of managers would have told his pitcher to put Jeter on base. Buck didn't.Here's...

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...

Four Requests for Girardi With Yankees Tragic Number Down To One

With a “tragic number” of one game, the Yankees are in a bad situation. They would need the miracle of miracles to make the playoffs at this point. The New York Yankees will soon be in a position they haven’t been in for almost 20 years: missing the post-season in back to back years.Between that fact and having to say goodbye to Derek Jeter (at Fenway Park no less), it is going...

Yankees' Shifting Infield Alignment A Potential View Of The Future

Brian McCann at 1B, Francisco Cervelli behind the plate and Mark Teixeira sitting forlornly on the bench with an ailment of some kind.

Let the record show that the 2014 Yankees - of the Incontinent Empire - didn't even make it to mid-September for playing meaningful games. Our "post-reason" race, even with the phony one-day wild card, ended before Monday's third-quarter moon. Last year, they at least made it to the final weekend.

While McCann Deserves A Pass, Other Yankees Derserve Anything But

Fans were given another tease last night, as the Yankees came from behind to beat the Rays by a score of 8-5. Actually, there was more than one tease, including one from Brian McCann. McCann went 2-3 with three RBIs, including a home run.  Seeing performances like this from him so late in the season is beyond frustrating.In spite of the frustration, I am willing to say this: We...

NEW YORK (AP) Mark Teixeira made up for a botched foul pop in the Rays' four-run first inning with a go-ahead triple in the fifth, Brian McCann homered and drove in three runs, and the New York Yankees used their biggest comeback of the season to beat Tampa Bay 8-5 Wednesday night.

McCann gets 4 hits, Yanks top Red Sox to end skid

NEW YORK (AP) Brian McCann will have all winter to figure out what went wrong in his first year with the New York Yankees. In the meantime, he's trying to help them make a late push to reach the playoffs.

A sad old team, going nowhere, waiting to die

Last night, the rusted Yankee pipe-wrench known as Brian McCann homered in the ninth inning, cutting the Redsocks' lead to five. As he bulldogged around the bases, McCann looked embarrassed, like the dad who comes home puking drunk at 1 a.m., and wakes his kids to give them candy bars. Alfonso used to call them "A-Rod homers" - blast that pad personal numbers, but have...

Doucejuice of the week: Brett Gardner for hitting recently concussed Brian McCann in the head with Gatorade bucket

Last Sunday, Brian McCann hit a three-run, pinch-hit walk-off homer for the Yankees in a 7-4 win over the White Sox.

Watch that imbecile Brett Gardner hit McCann in the head with a bucket of Gatorade.If you can't figure...
