Could Yankees And Pirates Make A Trade

Another Yankees’ catcher may soon find himself packing his bags for a move to Pittsburgh. According to a report from Ken Davidoff of the New York Post, the two teams match-up well for a possible deal.

News and notes: Trade rumors, Stewart/Sanchez, Lambo

This looked like it was going to be a mostly drama-free spring for the Pirates — and to this point, I would say it still has been — but recently a few issues have popped up that could cause the Bucs to make some last minute changes. Opening Day is less than two weeks away now, so it’s getting close to roster-crunch time. There are some trade rumors surrounding Vin Mazzaro...

Pirates catcher Chris Stewart needs knee surgery

The Pirates acquired Chris Stewart from the Yankees to serve as Russell Martin‘s backup, but now the 31-year-old catcher is likely headed for surgery after injuring his knee in a game last week. Stewart didn’t figure to play much for the Pirates considering he’s a career .214 hitter and Martin started 117 games last year. In his place 25-year-old former first-round draft pick...

Yankees trade Chris Stewart to Pittsburgh for another bucket of fried chicken

The Yankees today traded catcher Chris Stewart to Pittsburgh for what is expected to be an obscure low-end prospect, meaning the Yankees are cornering the market on obscure former Pirate minor leaguers.  (See A.J. Burnett for Diego Moreno and Exicardo Cayones.)  We weren't going to offer Stewart a 2014 contract, so at midnight, he would become a free agent. Apparently, Brian...

Re-Sign or Let Him Walk: Chris Stewart

After letting Russell Martin sign with the Pittsburgh Pirates last offseason, the New York Yankees went into Spring Training with a pair of catchers battling for the starting job — Francisco Cervelli and Chris Stewart.

Getaway Day Thoughts: Apparently, Chris Stewart's great play at Fenway didn't galvanize the team

I'm off on a National Lampoon Family Vacation, leaving the house keys to Mustang for a week. I might fire off a furious, blood-inked note from some wi-fi hobo jungle - Mt. Waldman is ready to pop - but probably, I'll self-medicate with my head in a bucket of ice-water.Getaway Day thoughts:1. Chris Stewart's catch/throw out - the greatest moment of 2013 - spared us from...

The quietly winning ways of the New York Yankees

The New York Yankees have always won ballgames. But hardly ever in the manner they are now. In Seattle, catcher Chris Stewart emerged as the latest hero for the Yankees Since 2002, the aptly-named Bronx Bombers have finished in the top five among all major league teams in runs scored every year but one. The lone exception – 2008 – coincided with the only time in the past 18 years...
