New York Yankees trade rumors: Chase Headley edition

Chase Headley isn’t ready to settle with the New York Yankees just yet. With recent trades including Hanley Ramirez ($95 million/5 yrs) and Pablo Sandoval (4 yrs) to the Boston Red Sox who are raking in the money, Headley is waiting for the perfect price and most likely a four-year deal.

Report: Yankees Won’t Engage In ‘Bidding War’ For Chase Headley

The New York Yankees say they will be just fine with Martin Prado manning third base. The Yankees are not willing to engage in a bidding war for Chase Headley, a source told the New York Daily News, suggesting that the 30-year-old could be making an unceremonious — if lucrative — exit from the Bronx. “The Yankees like him and want him back, but they...

D-backs slugging prospect O'Brien sharpens catching skills in Fall League

PHOENIX -- When Peter O'Brien was 14 years old, he was 5-feet-4 and 125 pounds. It only seems that he swings a bat about that size these days. O'Brien has been one of the most productive hitters in the game since a late-high-school growth spurt, and the Diamondbacks acquired him last summer with the belief it will continue. O'Brien, who's position of choice is catcher...

The Yankees could go with a six man rotation at firstbase

You know they say: The key to baseball is firstbasing, firstbasing, firstbasing! In fact, during Yankee blowouts, John Sterling takes pains to note that tomorrow's game will be entirely different, because both teams will field a new firstbaseman. Well, at least the Yankees will. Which brings us to Brian Cashman's latest revelation: Next season, Al Rodriguez might move...

Boston unveiled its Cuban Brett Gardner with power last night

Say what you wish about Martin Prado - a fine, scrappy player, when not lying on a hospital gurney - but if not for the $22 million that Hal spent on Prado, we might have out-gunned the Redsocks to sign 27-year-old Rusney "Brett Gardner with Power" Castillo.Last night, the Redsocks played their new Cuban plug-in. He went one for four. Brace yourselves, because we'll...

After two weeks, it's official: The NY sportswriters have declared the Martin Prado deal a success

First, the obvious: Martin Prado is a nice player. He hits 10 HRs a year, bats .270 and plays three positions. The Yanks could do worse. And Prado hit well during the team's recent 5-game winning streak. (Not last night, though: He went 0-4.)Still, isn't it rather early to start congratulating the Yankee front office for trading power-hitting prospect Peter O'Brien for...

Key To New York Yankees Success? A Horse Mask

The New York Yankees have miraculously stayed competitive, overcoming underwhelming performances and devastating injuries. Most would attribute their success to the bargain-based trades that Brian Cashman made at the deadline.  Bringing in players like Stephen Drew, Chase Headley, Martin Prado, and Brandon McCarthy has paid huge dividends. However, those inside the New York Yankees...

In the Yankees 8-1 win over Kansas City last night, Martin Prado was 2-4 with one RBI.  Prado, as the saying goes, has been en fuego.After getting off to a slow start, he has proven to be one of the best--if not the best--pickup this year by GM Brian Cashman.  In Prado's last 10 games he has hit for a .385 average, drove in 10 runs, hit three home runs and scored eight runs...
