New York Yankees trade rumors: Jeff Samardzija edition

C.C. Sabathia’s days as a starter may be numbered. The New York Yankees may be in 1st place of the AL East with a record of 43-37, but their starting pitching remains a major area of concern. Recently, the Yankees have sent scouts to watch Cincinnati Reds’ pitchers Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake, so their desire to acquire a new pitcher before the July 31st MLB trade deadline is...

New York Yankees: Team skips CC Sabathia’s scheduled start

Points Leagues: Gimme Some More

When did Busta Rhymes get so fat? Dayam!!! Dude looks like he ate the Busta Rhymes I remember that put out some great music back in the late 90's and early 2000's. I'm not much of a rap fan, but I was always a Busta fan. When he sang "Gimme Some More" who knew he was talking to the guy that was putting food on his plate.

New York Yankees: June letdowns

Another month, another set of players who struggled to get a rhythm going. June is an important point in the season for slumping players, as upper management has to decide if this poor month was simply a rough patch or a ominous sign of bad things to come. Like all other teams, the New York Yankees had their share of players who scuffled both on the mound and at the plate. Here...

Loss Of Warren Weakens A Yankees Rotation Already Weakend By Sabathia

Before each Yankee series begins, I post the pitching match-ups on the blog's Facebook page. I posted them yesterday evening with the comment, "Definitely not liking the fact that CC Sabathia pitches the opener." Sabathia did nothing to take away my fears, as he pitched poorly again, leading to the Yankees 4-1 loss to the Angels.Then I wake up this morning to even more bad news:...

Yankees-Angels Preview

CC Sabathia had not allowed a homer to Albert Pujols and Mike Trout until this year in what was a rare victory for the New York Yankees left-hander. C.J.

No southpaw gives up more homers than Sabathia while hitting the longball is a recipe...

CC Sabathia held back after Astros' Brett Oberholtzer throws at A-Rod (VIDEO)

Houston Astros pitcher Brett Oberholtzer got rocked early by the New York Yankees on Saturday, allowing a grand slam to catcher Brian McCann and a two-run dinger to outfielder Chris Young — all before he was out of the second inning. So the frustrated lefty took out his anger out on Alex Rodriguez by intentionally throwing a fastball at A-Rod's midsection. CC Sabathia took...

What should the Yankees do with CC Sabathia?

Former Cy Young award winner CC Sabathia was supposed to be the ace of the New York Yankees staff when they re-signed him to a five-year, $182 million contract back in 2011. The Yankees, of course, had hopes that the big left-hander would continue to be as dominant as he was in the past, but Sabathia has not delivered recently. He has been going downhill after leading the Yankees...

New York Yankees need to trust their pitchers

Sabathia's Failure To Transition From Ace Status Becoming Costlier & Costlier For Yankees

Full disclosure: I am a big CC Sabathia fan. I’ll forever remember his performance in 2009 in the regular season and the post season. Those two starts against the Angels in the A.L.C.S, the last on three days rest, were the exact reason the Yankees brought him in and paid him well more than any other team was even considering.The fireball throwing, fist pumping, roaring southpaw...
