Keuchel throws 'free and easy' to McCann

Ace lefty Dallas Keuchel, who was away from the Astros on Thursday with an illness, threw in the bullpen Friday afternoon to new catcher Brian McCann, with manager A.J. Hinch watching. Keuchel missed the final month of last season with shoulder inflammation, but has thrown off the mound six times, though this was the first time at camp.

Has Brian McCann fulfilled Yankees’ expectations?

After the New York Yankees turned to a defense-first offering behind the plate for the 2013 season, they decided it was best to sign an offensive catcher who could still make a difference behind the dish. The Yanks inked Brian McCann, then a longtime backstop for the Atlanta Braves, to a five-year, $85 million contract before the 2014 season.Brian McCannPhoto Credit: Keith Allison...

While McCann Deserves A Pass, Other Yankees Derserve Anything But

Fans were given another tease last night, as the Yankees came from behind to beat the Rays by a score of 8-5. Actually, there was more than one tease, including one from Brian McCann. McCann went 2-3 with three RBIs, including a home run.  Seeing performances like this from him so late in the season is beyond frustrating.In spite of the frustration, I am willing to say this: We...

Girardi's Faith In Yankees' McCann Might Be Misplaced & Not Rewarded

In our previous post, Bernadette expressed her hope that Brian McCann will turn things around this season. Christina, however, is not so sure:The New York Yankees are a bad team right now. After another frustrating loss to a division rival on Tuesday night, the Yankees fell to 41-41 and 2-8 in their last 10 games. Their expected win-loss record of 37-45 is a lot closer to where they...

Though Horrible, Yankees Brian McCann Taking Steps To Change

They say the first step toward getting rid of a problem is to admit that you have one. Brian McCann has a problem, and last night he admitted it.After signing his big free agent deal in the off-season, McCann was expected to provide much-needed lefty power to the Yankees lineup, especially toward Yankee Stadium's short porch in right field.

New York Yankees: A look at Brian McCann

Brian McCann has played a total of 50 games as a New York Yankee. He has been at bat 179 times this season with 41 hits, 7 homers and 24 RBIs. I would say his first two months as a Yankee have been below average for him, especially offensively. Every athlete has their slumps in their sports, and it’s how they overcome the slump that really speaks to their character and athleticism...

How the New York Yankees will make the playoffs

The New York Yankees missed out on the playoffs for the 2nd time in nineteen years last spring. This year there is still a chance for the boys in stripes. Figuring out exactly what they need to do in order to get there might be harder than actually making it happen. Luckily for you I did my research and I think I have a few ideas how our New York Yankees can snatch up a spot in the...
