If Chris Young homers in a forest, do the trees cheer?

For the record: I hope Chris Young salvages his career.Dear God, it'd be nice to have someone in the lineup with an actual pulse - one guy worth holding water to watch, instead of rushing to the kitchen for a mound of glistening comfort food. Right now, there is A-Rod - sort of - and maybe Brett Gardner. Now that Jose Pirela is out, and since Rob Refsnyder never even got a chance...

Have You Heard The Rhetoric?

The Yankee brass are drooling over themselves, and in the press, about how CC's velocity was up.How about his 24.0 ERA?  That is up too.  So were the three home run balls, in three innings.Matt Harvey pitched 6 innings of shutout ball, and gave up two singles.   Think the Mets were happy about his velocity improving?We are so full of crap.  CC Sabathia looks like a disaster,...

My New Optimism

Duque is right.  And I tried to be positive in my last post. I just know I said something positive about someone or something.So here's the latest, based upon last night's game;1.  I couldn't watch most of it because Chris Young played, I think, 7 innings.2.  I did see Pirela's two at bats and he is a, "tough out."  He has a great eye for pitches so, unlike virtually every other...

Boring Due To Stupidity

So I visited with Mustang at his Florida retreat ( pictured above ).  We went to a couple of Yankee games with Duque, and then pow-wowed to assess the season to come.  We even watched a game or two on Mustang's jury-rigged, outdoor TV stand.In my view, the Yankees will be unwatchable.  Sure, they will win a game or two because they have some pitching, and a few talented players...

Alex Rodriguez Goes 0-For-2 Against Pitching Machine; Chris Young Strikes Out

Talk about a rough day at the office. The New York Yankees’ pitching machine got the best of a couple of the club’s batters Monday during an intrasquad scrimmage. Alex Rodriguez and center fielder Chris Young were the machine’s victims. Final A-Rod tally: 0-for-2, groundout and fly out.— Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) March 02, 2015 Chris Young...

Yankees showcase burgeoning youth movement with new heir to 3B Chase Headley

YES DRIVEL CHANNEL_ (Tampa) At 39, slugger Alex Rodriguez can't be expected to play third base forever. And some fans may have wondered what the Bronx Bombers have in store as "A-Rod's" long-term heir apparent. Well, world, relax! Because yesterday, fans got a glimpse of the future, when young Chase Headley - up from the (cough) league last year - took grounders at third alongside...

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...

After all the recent upheaval, has the Yankee bullpen improved? The answer may depend on how we read Hemingway.

I like the idea that the Yankees have gotten slightly younger. Everyone does. But unless we sign some farm-fresh 17-year-old Cuban, or shoot off into some Christopher Nolan wormhole, the 2015 Yankees will still be more ancient than the $99 stadium dirt from Steiner Collectibles. Lately, I've seen a few ridiculous claims popping up around the Yankiverse about some "super bullpen,...

Yankees Rumors: Potential Remaining Offseason Moves

It’s been an off-season of saving money and getting younger for the New York Yankees. This isn’t some sort of alternate Universe but it is a clear philosophical shift by the front office to go in a different direction, possibly with an Alex Rodriguez reminder and CC Sabathia and Mark Teixeira contracts fresh on the conscience. The fact of the matter is if the Yankees kept going...

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...
