New York Yankees trade rumors: Gerardo Parra edition

The New York Yankees got some good news before their 5-4 win over the Athletics on Wednesday, as center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury was activated off the DL. This move was certainly one that the Yanks needed, as they already had three outfielders (Carlos Beltran, Slade Heathcott, and Mason Williams) on the disabled list. As the trade deadline approaches, the team should seriously consider...

Aaron Judge moves up to Scranton, while Flores, Heathcott and Williams try to heal before the trade deadline

Yesterday, the Yankees promoted Aaron Judge - their most celebrated position prospect since Jesus "Ice Cream Sandwich" Montero - up from Trenton to the Scranton/Columbus RailClippers. Judge is 23, but he eats like 40. He stands 6'7" and weighs 275 pounds - C.C. Sabathia territory. At Trenton, Judge was hitting .284 with 12 home runs, (which had him tied for the Eastern League lead...

Another ( Not So ) Fun Fact:

Mason Williams will not get another hit as a Yankee.He will be the only rookie who hit a home run and nothing else, during his time in pinstripes.His batting average started at .500 and is now .091...and fading.His best at bats are now swinging strike outs. He plays great defense, but cannot hit a lick.   Like so many Yankee regulars.The bus is loading for Scranton.  I can hear...

Easy for me to sit around, calmly, and survey the countryside.  Listen to the birds, smell the roses and have an occasional pull on a flask of Crown Royal Reserve.The world is good.Then, I start thinking about the Yankees.  About the slimy, stupid, manipulative GM we have.  I tune in the game to find that Mason Williams got a call up.  Mason, despite my certainties of his hopelessness...

Yankees Friday News & Views: Dickens, Roster Moves, The Draft & Mel

The best and worst of times have come in unusual places and venues for this year's Yankees. Going to the west coast for the first time, a reasonable expectation would have been to win three of four in the series at Oakland. That is exactly what happened except it was the league's worst A's that won the three games against the Yankees.  Monday in Seattle, Mariner's ace Felix Hernandez was...

Someone left the cake out in the rain: The Yankees may regret leaving Kyle Roller unprotected in the upcoming Rule 5 draft

Yesterday, the Evil Empire added four "kids" - Tyler Austin (age 23), Danny Burawa (25), Branden Pinder (25) and Mason Williams (23) - to their 40-man roster, protecting them in next month's Rule 5 scavenger hunt. Left outside the Bronx bubble is first-baseman Kyle Roller. I understand the decision. Roller is 26. Also, he plays a position where the Yankee drain is clogged: Mark...

No more denial, no more naive excuses for hope; it's time for the Yankiverse to accept its fate

I listened in the car - three hours of John and Suzyn's lycanthropic de-evolution from hope into sheer despair. In the beginning, their voices projected the jubilation of a ticker tape parade along the Canyon of Heroes. In the end, they were broadcasting from the viewing deck of the Hindenburg.In the first inning, they noted how Tigers' rookie Kyle Lobstein could be tight in his...

The Descent Begins In Earnest. Do Not Read This. It Is long, Insightful and Painful.

Duque says, "we dodged a bullet," when Cliff Lee turned up lame.  I disagree.  We tried to make that deal with the same enthusiasm and foresight the Yankees exhibited in using a top draft pick on Andy Brackman, knowing he was headed for career ending surgery.  We tried to sign Cliff Lee utilizing the same planning and keen insight it took Brian Cashman to use a top draft pick...

Ladies and gentlemen, the captain has turned on the seat belt sign, as we are expecting turbulence over the next few miles. Please return to your seats. We will soon be distributing beverages.

For those of you seated on the left side of the aircraft, if you look out the window, you may see flames billowing from the engine. There is no cause for alarm. The Yankee pitching has been overworked. We suggest you pulled down your window shades, so other passengers will not be disturbed.For anyone on the right side, it may look as though the wing is missing. Not to worry...

April May, but June Ju-LIES... The Yanks are four games behind last year's pace

Those who forget the past...Maybe we should start calling them "the Even Empire," as in "breaking even." They win a game, then they torture one.Exiting the month of May - which traditionally was cruel to Yankee powerhouses of the early 2000s - here is what I know:1. The AL East is a putrid cesspool of antique collections of mediocrity - plus a young one, Tampa Bay. Unless the Blue...

New York Yankees Top 10 Prospects

The New York Yankees have a poor farm system. Almost every one of the team’s top prospects underperformed last season, so it’s difficult to accurately assess the system moving forward. Sanchez and Murphy are good catching prospects. Judge is a mystery and could become a good power hitter. Austin, Heathcott, and Williams are all highly-regarded outfielders who performed poorly...

Note To Research Staff : Please look Further

It is one thing to assess and argue about who our next pitching staff members will be, but we have another problem.With only a handful of old, average pitchers available in our " farm system," the Yankees are going to have to score a lot of runs to win games.  Two or three runs per game for our side is a guaranteed loss. At the moment, we have one of the lowest averages in the AL...

Still hope: Yangervis survives the cut

But Mason Williams didn't.Ten players sent to the minors, no surprises. Zelous Wheeler is still a zealous Yankee, and Solarte is still Yankee-gervis.Of course they'll soon be gone. But someday... imagine this:A Yankee player without a ceiling built of concrete.

What I've Observed

I have now seen two complete games on the YES network.   Maybe three.I have observed the following:1.  Corbin Joseph has been our toughest out.  He has had good, tough at bats.  He is now playing FB in a desperate attempt to have back-up value.2.  Austine Romine's offensive debut consisted of standing at the plate and watching three strikes go by.         Great eye there...
