YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees holding 1996 championship team reunion on August 13

The 1996 Yankees are my favorite Yankees team of all time. I’m guessing many of you feel the same way. Sure, the 1998 and 2009 teams were awesome, but that 1996 squad was my first World Series championship team. I was still a kid and baseball had just crushed my soul for the first time in the 1995 ALDS. Not team will compare to the 1996 Yankees to me. Earlier today the Yankees...

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...

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...

Thoughts following Carlos Beltran’s hamstring injury

Last night the Yankees received a bit of a scare when Carlos Beltran pulled up slow running out a would-be double. He grabbed at his right hamstring before walking off the field with trainer Steve Donohue. An MRI showed nothing major — it was deemed nothing more than a cramp — and Beltran is day-to-day. The injury scare led to some thoughts, so let’s get to ’em. 1. I firmly...

Bullpen Underbelly, Absent Offense Hand Yankees Another Loss

Last night’s game was all about ifs and maybes.If the Yankees offense had managed to score even one run across the first seven innings of the game, then maybe it’s Dellin Betances or Andrew Miller starting the 8th inning instead of CC Sabathia. If the offense could have put up better ABs against Cole Hamels and worn him down instead of making him throw just 86 pitches, then...

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...

Alex Rodriguez’s hamstring seems to be attached to his eyes

In everyday life we most commonly think of human bodies holistically. Walking down the street we tend to see the fine folk in our path as people instead of limbs, torsos, rib cages and facial features. Things are a little different when evaluating athletes. In baseball, arms, shoulders, elbows, legs, and hands are commonly scrutinized intently by scouts, fans and front office...
