Something's happening here; what it is aint exactly clear: The Yankees are bringing up Greg Bird

The Yankees today did what they never do: Brought up a position prospect before the age of 24. Moreover, they did something that should scare the bejeezus out of any Yankee fan who still has a working bejeezus. (Mine is shot.)They are bringing up 22-year-old 1B Greg Bird from Scranton.We should be excited about this. The Yankiverse has heard the drum beat mythos of Bird since last...

A big shoe drops today, and the mystery of Dustin Ackley will be explained

Something will happen today. It must happen. I'm sort of dreading it. Today, we will learn why, why, why the Yankees sandbagged themselves into a corner in their obsessive quest for somebody named Dustin Ackley.  I spent last night trying to figure it out. Never did. Ackley's nickname should be "The Sphinx." His presence as a Yankee - if he remains one after today - is a dark...

Yankees Continue To Win Series, Must Keep Eye On Division Foes

The New York Yankees are pure fun to watch right now. Whether it’s winning close 1-run games (they played in five straight coming out of the All-Star Break and won four of them) or blowing out the opposition (they won three of their last four games and each win was three runs or higher) the Yankees are finding ways to win series.Excluding the series against the Angels, which concluded...

When Garrett Jones and Carlos Beltran play OF, the 2015 Yankees pay the price for their original sin: Wanting to screw A-Rod

In our brief, recent sight-seeing excursion to the Confederacy, the damned Yankees gave the world two spectacular OF blunders, each worthy of a season ending low-light reel.Saturday night, Carlos Beltran pivoted around neatly to watch a fly ball land over his head and bounce against the wall - a sense of daring-do that would have made Bobby "The Wallflower" Abreu look like Minnie...

WATCH: Carlos Correa scores after hitting routine fly ball

By TOC Locker Carlos Correa hit what looked like a routine fly ball in the fourth inning of Sunday’s game between the New York Yankees and Houston Astros. But this is baseball, and crazy things happen from time to time. On this day, Correa’s ball wasn’t caught, and things didn't go well for the Yankees. Correa's hit went down in the books as a double and a two-base error...

Hate to say this, but the Yankees right now are not only baseball's most boring team, but they might be the most boring entity in corporate America, after IBM and the company that imports those back-scratchers from China.Typically, they score two runs early, and then... nothing... nada... zilch.

Garrett Jones Will be Vital for the Yankees Success

While all the attention this past off-season has been on the return of Alex Rodriguez, the New York Yankees made some quality moves since the end of their disappointing 2014 season that should benefit the team greatly. The team added shortstop Didi Gregorius, who will have big shoes to fill as he takes over for Derek Jeter. The Bronx Bombers also re-signed second baseman Stephen...

Meet Garrett Jones’ Wife Cassie

Need a late round target in your 20-man fantasy baseball draft? Look no further than first baseman/outfielder Garrett Jones, who moved from the Miami Marlins to New York Yankees this offseason. Yes, he’s a platoon guy, but he’s a lefty who mashes righties in a ballpark known for their short right field porch. Homers are to be had! And speaking of the move from Miami to New York...
