Yankees Rumors: New York will bid on Nelson Cruz in FA

The best value signing of this past offseason was the Baltimore Orioles getting Nelson Cruz on a one-year, $8 million deal.

Yankees will continue to rest Derek Jeter down final stretch

With the Yankees’ playoff hopes dangling by a thread, the most intriguing aspect of the next two weeks figures to be Derek Jeter’s final lap through Tampa Bay, Boston and the Bronx. But don’t expect to see the Captain in the lineup every day, as Joe Girardi has no intention of playing the 40-year-old in 20 straight games to close his career. “I know I can’t do that,...

Keep hope alive: Will Brian Cashman be given his walking papers at the end of the year?

I guess $2.7 billion doesn't go as far as it used to. That is how much New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman has spent in Yankee payroll since 2001 to get exactly one World Series title in 14 years. But even though Cashman has literally outstpent every other team in the majors over that time frame, the Red Sox, Cardinals and Giants have more World Series titles than the Yanks do...

Even For Yankees Icons Tough Going Out On Top

Most players don’t go out on top.  Likely because most players don’t want to leave with something still left in the tank or they simply don’t have enough left in the tank to leave at the pinnacle of their respective sport.  In the case of Derek Jeter, his storybook career would suggest a sixth title could technically be within reach.  Yet if past is prologue, in the lore...

What the O's should give Jeter is not a bucket of crabcakes, but a base hit

It is breaking my heart to see Derek Jeter like this.Yesterday, in his final at bat - mired in an 0-19 slump - he tapped back to the pitcher, a routine play that happens in full view of the batter. Almost all MLB hitters jog it out - even the ones not named Cano - and nobody complains. But Jeter didn't jog. He busted it, sprinted down the line. Then he kept his head down...

Yankees fend off Orioles to help faint playoff hopes

David Robertson felt it immediately after the phone in the Yankees’ bullpen rang late Saturday afternoon. “I was a little sore warming up,’’ Robertson said. “The shoulder, side and hamstring were real tight but I knew I had enough to get the job done.’’ Somewhere along the trip from pen to the Camden Yards mound adrenaline, something MLB hasn’t found a way to outlaw...

Preview: Yankees at Orioles (9/14/14)

Hiroki Kuroda (10-9, 3.91 ERA) and Chris Tillman (12-5, 3.36 ERA) close out the series at Camden Yards. Since the break, Kuroda has cut back on throwing between starts trying to avoid a late season collapse like last season. That didn’t help his last outing, which was his shortest of the season against the Rays, allowing nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings. Tillman went five innings...

Yankees Fans Blame Carlos Beltran For Season In Strange Poll (Photo)

There are many reasons why the New York Yankees are all but counted out of postseason contention for the second straight year. There are the injuries that have left them without a viable starting rotation. There’s the fact that their shallow farm system can’t make up for those injuries.

Our "post-reason" race, even with the phony one-day wild card, ended before Monday's third-quarter moon. Last year, they at least made it to the final weekend. At this rate, in 2015, we'll be free on Labor Day.From now on...
