YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Brian Cashman mum on Yankees’ potential pursuit of Bryce Harper in 2018

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman wisely sidestepped an inquiry during a fan forum about the impressive free agent class slated to arrive following the 2018 season. A fan at the event held Tuesday night at the Times Square Hard Rock Cafe asked specifically is the Yankees will pursue the likes of Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. Smiling — and showing awareness of how...

Previewing the Yankees’ potential Spring Training invitees

Four weeks from yesterday, pitchers and catchers will report to Tampa and the Yankees will open Spring Training. It’s the best non-news day of the year. Nothing really happens that day, but hey, it’s the start of Spring Training, and that’s exciting. The offseason is boring. This one especially so. At some point in these next three weeks and six days the Yankees will announce...

Cutting through the ridiculous hype on Clint Frazier

I'm weary of the incessantly upbeat Yankeeganda about prospect Clint Frazier. It's creating an expectations game that is unfair to the kid. Nothing he does will ever be good enough. It's not right.Therefore, to tamp things down, I'm using the standardized preliminary data-curve methodology - including game video, workout regime, psychological tests, stool sample analyses and aural...

James Kaprielian, top pitching prospect, hungry to be Yankees' ace

Right-hander says he's 100 percent healthy after missing most of 2016 with a right flexor tendon strain. NEW YORK -- James Kaprielian, one of the jewels of a Yankees farm system filled with gems, envisions himself to someday be a version of the 2016 Masahiro Tanaka. And the sooner the better. Clint Frazier done feeling Andrew Miller pressure...

Yankees bring Baby Bombers to NY to promote season

NEW YORK (AP) Clint Frazier thought to the future and predicted: ''It's going to be common for people to not like us.''

Yankees stud Clint Frazier: I’m done watching Andrew Miller

The Yankees’ first midseason sell-off in recent memory was based on building for the future. For Clint Frazier, he hopes that future comes quickly. The brash outfielder didn’t rule out making the Opening Day roster — although he admitted it was a long shot. “I try to think in more realistic terms,” Frazier said Tuesday....

CC Sabathia hopes to continue pitching beyond 2017

Hands down, one of my favorite things about last season was CC Sabathia‘s resurgence. It was tough watching him struggle the last few years, but last season Sabathia developed a cutter and made the transition to finesse pitcher. Hopefully he gives the Yankees more of the same this coming season. They’ll need it to contend. Not surprisingly, Sabathia recently told Pete Caldera...

With the right field job up for grabs, Judge is still making adjustments this offseason

Know what’s a fun game? Trying to figure out which young Yankees player you’re most looking forward to seeing this coming season. The easy answer is Gary Sanchez and understandably so. He was incredible last year. But there’s also Greg Bird, who we haven’t seen in over a year. And Tyler Austin‘s opposite field power. We can’t forget Aaron Judge either. He hit some jaw...

Cashman hits the scrap heap

There's nobody happier in this world than Brian Cashman at a flea market. It's his nirvana, his Calgon Bath moment, his golden shower. He wanders through aisles of junk and finds an old lamp that says "Maximus Super Beer." He doesn't need it. He has no place for it. His girlfriend will leave him. But hell, it costs $2. How do you walk away from a Maximus Super Beer lamp for two dings...

Obama skips over Aroldis Chapman while praising Cubs

The Chicago Cubs’ visit to the White House was already a headline-grabber before it even happened. In a surprising move, the team decided to move its visit to Monday and became the last team President Barack Obama will honor in office. Then, Monday’s event happened, and more news was made. While President Obama was pointing out the various members of the Cubs’ World Series...

Gary Sanchez: How I’ll turn two unreal months into a great 2017

The Yankees are still searching for a new identity in the post-Jeter era, and the arrival of Gary Sanchez last August certainly got people talking. After Sanchez burst on the scene with a historic stretch at the plate over the season’s final two months following his call-up from the minors, the 24-year-old phenom will now try...

2017 Minor League Preview: New York Yankees

Not going to lie, this post should be in all caps. As any proud New Englander would, I got piss drunk before writing this opening. Was it convenient that there was a Patriots playoff game? Sure, but I could have limited myself. Instead I drank too many IPA's and traded Gausman for Paxton, and can't remember writing this as I answer you're questions. If mu grammar is correct, you...

Joe Maddon laughs at critics of his bullpen management

Joe Maddon sure received a lot of criticism for a guy who led the Chicago Cubs to their first World Series title since 1908. Maddon’s use of his bullpen and pitching staff was unconventional, but it produced undeniable results. His usage of Aroldis Chapman in particular received a lot of criticism, including some from the pitcher himself. But speaking from his annual Thanksmas...
