Dark day: The Redsocks just outbid us for the "Brett Gardner with power" Cuban

The international man of mystery known as Rusney Castillo has signed with Boston, potentially tipping the balance of power in the AL East next year. At the least, the balance of hope has turned markedly in their favor. Of course, the Yankees have managed to set the bar pretty low on hope.Basically, they offer none. Tonight, the Murdoch/YES p.r. Zambroni machine will smooth this over...

New Jersey dot com says the Yankees have passed on the Cuban Brett Gardner with power

I hope they are wrong. But if they're right - well - the Gate-Keeper just slept with Zuul, and New York City is about to meet the Marshmallow Man. This is what happens when a team is so larded, so addicted to overpriced veterans, and with trying to win tomorrow's game, that it cannot make a long-term strategy. This is how franchises suck for 10 years.Supposedly, Hal Steinbrenner...

Could Brian (Supergenius) Cashman be on his way out? Please, Hal (Rip Van Winkle) Steinbrenner, make it happen!

Believe it or not, I actually have a smidgen of hope this week for the Yankees. Not for this season, of course. I have never had any expectations that the Yankees would actually go anywhere in 2014, other than to the bottom of the AL East. But that Hal (Rip Van Winkle) Steinbrenner may actually have stirred from the slumber he has been in over the past five seasons and is finally...

Does Alex Rodriguez still have a future with the New York Yankees? Not long ago, with the vitriol between A-Rod and the Yankees at a fever pitch, a return for Rodriguez to the Bronx seemed almost impossible.  But now, with the Yankees offense struggling through a serious funk, Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said on Wednesday that he wants to see what Rodriguez...
