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...

Granderson Was Getting A Raw Deal

Many people seem to have low expectations and even less optimism when discussing Curtis Granderson.  It seems like his bad season was what should be expected as everyone points to his age and playing in more of a pitcher’s park than Yankee Stadium was.  However, while he only had a pathetic 1.0 WAR last year, that was worse than even Ruben Tejada, let’s breakdown the factors...

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...

He was released July 1 and signed with Colorado three days later but never made it to the majors with...

Technically, free agency has started, but it hasn’t really started. The Yankees re-signed outfielder Chris Young. The Mets signed a minor league catcher.

Reason why the Yankees never develop young players No. 139: Chris Young is about to re-sign

Last September, the Yankees found OF Chris Young in a Mets' dumpster and took him home. They washed him, buffed him, greased his hinges, and he looked spanking brand new. (Why does that sound dirty?) For two weeks, he looked solid, batting .282 with three home runs! They thought, "Good grief, if he can hit like that for an entire season, he'd smack 50!"Apparently, they're about...

Chris Young Has No Regrets About Time With Mets

Chris Young was a major point of ridicule for Sandy Alderson this year. After passing on Nelson Cruz in the offseason, they signed Young as a buy-low candidate. What resulted was a season of turmoil in Queens before turning his season around in the Bronx. With the Mets in 2014, Young hit .205/.283/.346/.630 in 287 plate appearances. He was unable to produce, hitting just eight home...
