YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Flaunt Your Power And Buy The Judge

At some point soon, the Yankees have to say to themselves, "Are we this stupid of an organization?  We have a guy that is doing The Mashed Potato in the minors.  Look at this..."  Then a pile of balls that Aaron Judge hit are piled on the table, but instead of balls, they now look like mashed potatoes with stitches weaving throughout.  "No, we didn't have Lyle's mom from accountant...

Didi Gregorius is coming into his own in 2016

I have a somewhat embarrassing confession to make. When Didi Gregorius was with the Arizona Diamondbacks, I used to call him Cha Cha DeGregorio. If you don’t know who that is, ask your parents about the movie “Grease.” And it wasn’t meant in a derogatory way or as a way to insult him, it’s just that his last name reminded me of DeGregorio. When anyone mentions Dee Gordon...

Report: Alex Rodriguez won’t retire early or accept buyout

With the 40-year-old Alex Rodriguez scuttling mightily at the plate this season, the idea has been forwarded that perhaps he conceivably could decide to take an early retirement or perhaps even accept a buyout from the New York Yankees. Evidently, neither of those scenarios are ever going to happen, according to someone in A-Rod’s camp. FanRag Sports Network’s Jon Heyman writes...

Yankeemetrics: Riding the .500 roller coaster

Mother Nature 1, Yankees 0 In a season filled with crushing losses, embarrassing performances, horrible blown leads and frustrating games, Monday’s contest against the Rangers just might surpass them all. It will certainly go down in the record books as one of the most surreal games played at Yankee Stadium, and likely one of the most deflating defeats in recent years. Joe Girardi...

Headley looking forward to San Diego return

When Chase Headley trots out to third base for the Yankees on Friday night against his old club the Padres at Petco Park, he will have a strange sense of déjà vi. Headley was drafted by San Diego and had his best season for the Padres, but the environs have changed since he was traded to the Yankees almost two years ago.

Yankees infielder swung at a pitch-out after it was in the catcher's glove

Not all strikes are created equal. Some are borderline pitches that the umpire gives to the pitcher, and some are whiffs on pitch-outs that have already reached the catcher's glove.New York Yankees infielder Ronald Torreyes embarrassingly pulled off the latter, doing everything he possibly could to hold up his end of the hit-and-run. With Aaron Hicks running, Torreyes tried to protect...

Yankees: Like It Or Not, 31 More Days To Sell

A week ago I suggested there are a lot more things to dislike about the 2016 Yankees than like. Seems obvious, considering all the struggles on the roster, the rotation after CC Sabathia and Masahiro Tanaka, the middle of the lineup, the bullpen after the big three and the struggles of off season  acquisitions Starlin Castro and Aaron Hicks among the issues cited. I  also suggested...

Yankees mostly without 2 big bats this weekend in San Diego

No DH in NL parks NEW YORK -- The Yankees play three games this weekend at PetCo Park in San Diego against the Padres and will mostly be without right fielder Carlos Beltran and designated hitter Alex Rodriguez. Beltran is day-to-day with a sore right hamstring and because of National League rules, there is no DH, therefore no spot for A-Rod...

Yankees president goes on bragging while tickets go unsold

All of this would be easier to take if we only understood that they’re the smart guys; we’re the morons. And if we only came to realize that what we see we don’t see; we must believe only what we’re told. Monday, Yankees team president Randy Levine — the man with the vision, resolve and...

Yankees won’t risk letting CC Sabathia take any at-bats

If you were hoping to see CC Sabathia take some swings Sunday in San Diego, you’re out of luck. Joe Girardi decided to bump the lefty back a day to avoid any potential mishaps that might strike, especially because Sabathia already is dealing with a sore right ankle. Sabathia instead will start in Chicago against...

The Great Yankees Bullpen… Sale

The New York Yankees aren’t completely out of the 2016 postseason race, but they’re also not trending up. The team has done little this season to make anyone think they’re playoff-bound or anything more than a .500 team. Masahiro Tanaka has been good and CC Sabathia is having a nice bounce-back season, but Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi, Luis Severino and Ivan Nova haven...

This Might Be the End for Alex Rodriguez

Two opposing things can be true, I believe. Superstar players are probably the last to know when they’ve come to the end of the line. Declines can be so gradual they’re tough to detect if you’re just taking things day by day. If you listen to the players, they’ll insist they remain capable, even after they’re probably not. On the other side of the coin, no one loves to...

Masahiro Tanaka Has Changed From Michael Pineda to Nathan Eovaldi

On the surface, Masahiro Tanaka appears to be the same player this year that he’s always been. If you like to judge by results, which is arguably the most important factor in an athlete’s stat line, it checks out — his ERA is 3.01, which isn’t far off of his career 3.12 mark. He’s been the best starting pitcher on the Yankees this season, a distinction he held in his first...

Ken Griffey Jr. once pranked A-Rod in disturbing fashion

By the time Alex Rodriguez reached the big leagues with the Seattle Mariners during the 1994 season, Ken Griffey Jr. already was an established superstar and one of the leaders of the team. This apparently granted Griffey the right to haze the then-18-year-old in spectacularly hilarious but also somewhat disturbing fashion. The hazing ritual, as regaled in a profile of Griffey...

Yankees make Alex Rodriguez platoon player, trying to jumpstart playoff hopes

Alex Rodriguez made his debut as a platoon player Tuesday night, batting third as the designated hitter for the New York Yankees against the Texas Rangers. Left-hander Cole Hamels pitched for Texas, which is why A-Rod was in the starting lineup for the first time in three games. The Yankees haven’t made any sort of formal announcement about Rodriguez’s new status, but is there...

Joe Girardi angry after three and a half hour rain delay, Yankees loss

Joe Girardi isn’t thrilled with MLB umpires after his New York Yankees blew a 6-5 lead in the ninth inning after a three and a half hour rain delay. The Yankees entered the top of the ninth with a one-run lead, but after a serious rainstorm hit Yankees Stadium, the game went into a long delay. What happened next is the thing of nightmares. Girardi couldn’t turn to closer Aroldis...

Is it time for the New York Yankees to Promote Aaron Judge?

The New York Yankees sit at 37-38 in fourth place of the AL East, but only 2.5 games out of a wild card spot. The Yankees lineup has lacked consistency all season long and it may be time to call up power hitting prospect Aaron Judge. Judge was named the International League Batter of the Week after dominating performances in his last eight games. In the last eight games, Judge has...

Don’t ask Yankees president of the team will be sellers at trade deadline

The New York Yankees started the day sitting at .500, seven and a half games out of first place in the AL East and just 2.5 out of a wild card spot with more than half of the season left to play. With so much time remaining in the baseball season, you can probably understand why the Yankees would not be thinking about being sellers at this point of the year. Whatever you think of...

Yankees president rips media over trade deadline question

New York Yankees president Randy Levine did not respond well when asked about the prospect of the team being sellers, going after the media on Monday in response. Levine was asked to respond to those who believe the Yankees should sellers at the trade deadline, and he resorted to the old argument that you can’t criticize if you’ve never done it.

The Off-Season Workout That Helps Yankees Pitcher Aroldis Chapman Throw 100-Mph Fastballs

Yankees pitcher Aroldis Chapman can throw serious heat. Since he entered the league in 2010, the four-time All-Star has been a batter's nightmare. The "Cuban Missile" might be naturally gifted to throw unworldly fast pitches, but he also trains hard during the off-season to improve his pitching.

New York Yankees: New deal with StubHub

Being the main seller of secondary tickets to the other 29 franchises since 2012, StubHub has been in a feud with the Yankees since that time.

The New York Yankees reached the .500 mark Friday night after their 5-3 victory over the visiting Minnesota Twins, so the objective on Saturday afternoon was simple: Push themselves into the above .500 threshold. The much-maligned Michael Pineda took the mound for the Yankees on a beautiful Saturday in The Bronx and wound up delivering a performance that was perhaps comparable to...
