Yankees Twitter ignores A-Rod’s first home run, this is going to be a fun season

There are few things more obnoxious to me on Twitter than detailed play by play of exhibition games.  I react much like Jonah Keri does whenever there’s an impromptu concert on an airplane.  It takes a special kind of perseverance to not click the unfollow button when someone is flooding your timeline with frantic updates from a game that doesn’t count.  With that said, the...

"I'm never pain-free," Yankee golden oldie Carlos Beltran sez:

Longtime Squawker readers know that I was against the Carlos Beltran signing. The fact that the St. Louis Cardinals, arguably the smartest franchise in baseball, let him go was a huge warning sign. Another warning sign was Beltran's propensity for injury. That, combined with his age -- he will be 39 at the end of his deal with the Yankees -- made me wonder, and not for the first...

Carlos Beltran: Speaking to media is part of an athlete’s job

David Lennon of Newsday talked to Carlos Beltran about the media’s relationship with athletes. Let’s just say the Yankee responded like a true pro. “I feel like it’s my job,” Beltran said. “For fans out there, [reporters] are the voice of what’s happening, so they can know what’s going on in the clubhouse and around the game. “Honestly speaking, it’s not every...

Another canary keels over in the mine: Another sign the Yankees will poor-mouth on Moncada

Today, George A. King III - the blue-collar NY Post scribe with the uppity NY Times name - once again says the Evil Empire is turning knock-kneed over the cost of Cuban infielder Yoan Moncada, the last 2015 free agent who could inject hope into what now looks like the sorriest Yankee organization since the statue of Danny Tartabull patrolled RF.Writes King:[I]f the price tag is...

The Mets Will Need A Reversal Of Fortune To Make The Playoffs

We’re inching ever closer to the arrival of pitchers and catchers at the training camps in Florida and Arizona. By the way, did something else go on in Arizona this past weekend? Suffice to say Pete Carroll had his very own Carlos Beltran moment. I digress… In any case, now is the time when the computers start to whirr, the algorithms are calculated, the data is fed into...

Yankees’ Carlos Beltran is healthy and set for 2015 rebound

New York Yankees right-fielder Carlos Beltran had a rough inaugural season in the Bronx, due in large part to a bone spur in his right elbow which forced the veteran to take three separate cortisone shots. He had offseason surgery, has been rehabbing ever since and is said to be on target for full workouts with the team when spring training begins in Tampa next month.Beltran, who...

As Ichiro flounders, the world looks to Seattle to do what's right

The Yankees have a looming problem in right field. It's rather simple. They have nobody to play it. Oh, technically, you can say they have ol' Carlos Beltran and the amazin' Met, Chris Young. Carlos moves like the famous Bud Selig statue in Milwaukee, and Young got hot last September and boosted his average to .222! In another era, the Yankees would be sifting through free agents...

Reviewing the 2014 St. Louis Cardinals Draft: Rounds 1-5

For the third year in a row, the St. Louis Cardinals entered the MLB Draft in a unique position. They had two first round picks, thanks to the loss of Carlos Beltran to the New York Yankees.

Eight ideas for Owner Hal to cut costs this holiday season

Nothing burns my Beltrans more than when the hired help starts demanding more money. Let's hope Owner Hal holds the line against David Robertson, so the top brass can keep those Yankee home ticket prices so unbelievably low.  What's with these ingrates?
