Brian Cashman Deserves Credit

This past offseason Brian Cashman, the New York Yankees’ General Manager, opted not to throw millions at the likes of Max Scherzer and Hanley Ramirez. Instead, Cashman decided to make a flurry of smaller moves that have proved to pay big dividends for the Wild Card-leading New York Yankees. Brian Cashman went out and traded RHP Shane Greene in a three-way trade to acquire Didi...

The Yankees' aging resurgence

When Derek Jeter singled in the game winning run in his final at bat at Yankee Stadium last season, it was a much different scene than those Jeter had come to be known for during his career.   The Yankees had already been eliminated from the playoffs, and the victory wasn’t much more than a moral victory. For the second straight year, the Yankees had missed the playoffs. With...

WATCH: Outfielder Jonny Gomes pitched for Braves vs. Yankees

In the midst of a blowout, Atlanta Braves outfielder Jonny Gomes seized upon a golden opportunity to pitch in the ninth inning against the New York Yankees. New York was already up by a score of 13-2 when Gomes strode to the mound. He was called into duty as a means to save Atlanta’s bullpen in a game that was already a lost cause. It wasn’t exactly pretty, but boy was it an...

Fifteen runs: Did the Yankees just use up their allotment for the week?

Listen: It's great to see the Cueball, Brian McCann, return to Turner Town and whack a three-run Wolf Blitzer. Trouble is, it came as a postscript to a 15-run blowout, and my Nancy Grace spider sense began tingling before he touched second.  Fifteen runs. Woop woop. But will that be it? Did our heroes salt their stats to compensate for last week's malaise against Cleveland...

10 Random Thoughts For the #Yankees Stretch Run, by @nyypete

Heading to the stretch run can anybody make any sense of this team? Consider: 1. The Yankees have stolen eight bases in 12 attempts since the all star break. Rickey Henderson used to do that in one weekend series. Stolen bases are only the tip of the iceberg. When bats get heavy as the season rolls along and Earl Weaver's favorite offense, the three run home run, comes to a screeching...

A-Rod reportedly facing $1 million lawsuit from former brother-in-law

New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez is facing another legal issue. Rodriguez's former brother-in-law has filed a $1,000,000 lawsuit against him, according to the New York Daily News. Constantine Scurtis, the brother of Rodriguez's ex-wife Cynthia, alleges Rodriguez committed insurance and mortgage fraud in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike with Newport Property Ventures Ltd. --€“...

Derek Jeter rickrolled readers in debut Players’ Tribune post

One of Derek Jeter’s first of many post-retirement endeavors was to unveil The Players’ Tribune, a website which has the stated goal of allowing athletes to express themselves freely, unfettered and unedited (well, save for just a tinge — or a lot — of editing, apparently). The so-called editorial freedom has attracted the likes of Russell Wilson, Blake Griffin and Kevin...

Derek Jeter is a Rick Roller

First, he hustles President Obama on the golf course, and now this. Retired Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has often said he's not a big fan of social media, so it was pretty shocking when he revealed that he had opened a Twitter account in a new Q&A he published for his website, The Players' Tribune. However, Jeter decided to pull a fast one on his readers by going all 2008 on...

Yankees lacking energy during playoff race?

New York Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner told reporters Wednesday that he feels the club is lacking energy of late, more specifically saying the team was “kind of flat” in Tuesday and Wednesday’s defeats at the hands of AL West leading Houston. If there is one thing that makes me want to pull my hair out, it’s professional athletes saying they do not possess drive. I get...

Craig Carton wants to know why the hell Joe Girardi pinch hit Mark Teixeira yesterday

Boomer and Carton talk about the Yankees and if Manager Joe Girardi is making the right calls in pivotal late season situations. Craig wants to know why the hell New York manager Joe Girardi pinch hit Mark Teixeira yesterday with 2 outs in the 9th.Teixeira does three things: He hits HRs, spits, and misses games.

Isn't it time for Brian (Fredo) Cashman to grow the bleep up?

Last October, after the Yankees announced that Brian (Fredo) Cashman would be coming back as general manager, I made a conscious choice that I had to pull back on my "Cashman must go" narrative in Subway Squawkers. Not only was my anti-Cashman rhetoric futile, but all of the negativity was getting me down. Since then, I have made a conscious choice to have more positive things in...

Thoughts On The Problems With The Yankees Offense

The last seven games for the New York Yankees felt a lot like the last two seasons for the New York Yankees. Especially the 2014 season, when their offense was consistently non-existent. Surely this sounds familiar: A lineup that keeps failing to get hits with RISP. An injured Mark Teixeira taking too long to heal. (I guess that no-fun diet can't do everything.) Alex Rodriguez...

Yankees’ stagnant offense puts pressure on fragile rotation

Through most of the first four months of the season, the New York Yankees offense was one of the high-points of the club. They were second in the league in scoring and fairly consistent. The production was typically spread throughout a majority of the lineup; just about everyone helped produce runs at some point. But, once August came around, the offense has been sputtering more...

President Obama claims Derek Jeter hustled him on golf course

Everyone knows how much President Obama loves his golf — and that includes Derek Jeter. The five-time World Series champion, who was known for his extraordinary hustle on the diamond, apparently brought that same killer instinct to a golf course in Nevada last November when he met the leader of the free world for a friendly round of golf. Only it wasn't that friendly, if you...

Having taken their victory lap, the self-congratulatory Yankees have a month left to toast this ongoing disastrous season

In case you missed it, Sports Illustrated this week gives Brian Cashman a 2,000-word foot massage, barely a paragraph shy of a romp at the Airport Ramada. The upshot: Cashman is now a Yankee god, an icon comparable to Ruth and Gehrig, his bald head is bulletproof, and the 2015 Yankees stand as testimonial to his competence... this, as they plummet headlong into The Abyss.Yes...

WATCH: Carlos Gomez jaws with Yankees after bat toss

Carlos Gomez rubs a lot of people the wrong way. On Tuesday, he rubbed some members of the Yankees wrong when he popped up in the sixth inning of a 9-0 game and angrily flipped his bat. Gomez came up an inning later with the Astros’ lead extended to 12-0, and he launched a three-run homer off of Chris Capuano. And just to top things off, in the bottom half of the seventh...

Obama says Derek Jeter once hustled him on golf course

Derek Jeter is presumably good at a lot of things, including golf. Unfortunately, no one told the president of the United States about that. President Barack Obama was in Las Vegas on Monday where he spoke at a fundraiser at the home of Las Vegas Sun owner Brian Greenspun. While speaking, Obama recalled a previous trip to Vegas in which he hung out with Greenspun and New York Yankees...

Eovaldi Poised To Lead Yankees Rotation Into Postseason

Put another star in the notebook of Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild. His latest reclamation project has been a success. This season, Nathan Eovaldi is 13-2 with a 4.00 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. Last night he got a no decision after throwing eight scoreless innings, giving up only four hits, walking three and striking out seven. Oh, and he is also undefeated at Yankee Stadium...

Nate Eovaldi: No Fastball is Too Big To Hide

For his career, Nathan Eovaldi has a below-average strikeout rate. He’s been a little bit worse than league average by ERA, and a little bit better than league average by FIP, but even average is a strange outcome for a guy with a top-ten fastball by velocity. Take a look at how much of an outlier Eovaldi is in graphical form. That’s him highlighted, against all starters that...

Dear Mr. Sabathia, If you return this year, it must be as a power lefty out of the bullpen

Dear Madam or Sir,Last night, I had this bizarre dream...It's early October, the Bud Selig Memorial One Game Maximization of Profits Wild Card... and the Yankees are playing the Angels - in California, of course. It's the bottom of the seventh. We lead by one, but the Winged Wonders have loaded the bases for Trout and Pujols. Across the Yankiverse, hope has turned to liberal dosages...

A-Rod's 25th career grand slam earns him new nickname

The season that Alex Rodriguez is piecing together is nothing short of magical. Sure, there have been seasons with more astronomically high numbers than the 25 home runs and 67 RBIs that A-Rod has tallied through 118 games. But it’s Rodriguez’s recent struggles that make this season eye-popping. Rodriguez missed all of last season with suspension handed down by Major League...

The New York Yankees have announced the team will honor Alex Rodriguez accomplishing the remarkable feat of amassing 3,000 career hits earlier this season during a pre-game ceremony at Yankee Stadium on Sept. 13. The Yankees earlier this season appeared reluctant to say the least over acknowledging, much less celebrating, any milestones  A-Rod achieved this season. The team and...
