Brian Cashman talked to Aaron Judge about Machado recruitment

Tampa — The conversation was brief and concise, Aaron Judge said Thursday morning. He got the point. He’s unlikely to repeat the mistake he made.

Greg Bird’s conservative spring approach starting to pay off

SARASOTA, Fla.— Brian Cashman isn’t the only one not worried about Greg Bird’s less-than-inspiring start to the spring.

Sympathy for the Devil

I thought I’d bring in Nicky Brimstone, Esq., here, to make the case for Cashman.

Aaron Boone: Lance Lynn, Alex Cobb “aren’t really in play” for Yankees

During their quest to acquire starting pitching in recent months, the Yankees have been connected to a litany of potential trade and free agent targets. The list includes right-handers Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb, who rank as two of the best free agents remaining in this year’s class.
