YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees play every series now like it’s a turning point for season

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — When the Yankees’ 2016 schedule came out, who would have believed three games with the Rays in late July would carry so much weight? Coming out of spring training the Rays were expected to have an improved lineup to assist a solid pitching staff. The Yankees had the best late-game bullpen...

Fake Twitter account fools Internet with phony Carlos Beltran trade

Even the Twins’ scoreboard operator is swinging and missing. In the middle of the Twins’ game against the Orioles in Minneapolis on Thursday night, the scoreboard operator posted a list of five trades, which purportedly had been finalized, in a scroll on one of Target Field’s side monitors. The only problem was none of the...

Yankees are fully committed to Alex Rodriguez disaster

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Their DNA hasn’t changed even if the talent level over the years isn’t what it used to be when future Hall of Famers dotted the roster and trumped mere All-Stars. The Yankees, 6 ½ games off the pace in a crowded AL East field, still harbor belief they are a winning...

If the Yankees aren’t going to continue selling, then they need to be smart about buying

Even with last night’s disappointing loss, the Yankees are now 11-6 in their last 17 games, all of which have been played against good teams. They’ve have won series against the Astros, Giants, Orioles, and Indians in recent weeks. Three first place teams and arguably the hottest team in baseball. Who saw this coming? No one. The recent hot streak has seemingly thrown a wrench...

New York Yankees trade rumors: Starters on the move?

As the August 1 MLB non-waiver trade deadline approaches, there is a hungry market for starting pitching. The Yankees, who have already traded closer Aroldis Chapman for a very solid return, can be sellers. On Tuesday, the Yankees optioned lefty relief pitcher Chasen Shreve to triple-A Scranton after recalling starting pitcher Luis Severino, making it even more likely that they are...

Logan Morrison says Twitter has run its course for himself, other athletes

LOS ANGELES — Imagine trying to explain Twitter to someone 10 years ago. Think about it for a minute. It's not easy. "It's this thing, where you can only write a couple lines, but then you can quote other people, and there's news streams."It sounds ridiculous, of course we know what's happened the last few years, especially in sports. Twitter has become the de facto route between...

Roundtable: Who, if anyone, should the Yankees trade?

The trade deadline is approaching, and the Yankees still haven’t figured out whether they are buyers or sellers despite dealing Aroldis Chapman to the Cubs. Should the Yankees hold a fire sale, and trade away nearly every player of value to a contender on the roster? Or, should they hang on to Andrew Miller and Carlos Beltran in the hopes of making the playoffs? We debate...

As great as he’s been, Yankees shouldn’t consider Beltran a qualifying offer candidate

With eleven wins in their last 16 games, the Yankees are a season-high four games over .500 and firmly on the winning side of the ledger. They’ve had a winning record for a grand total of eleven days this season, believe it or not. It would be even fewer than that without Carlos Beltran‘s brilliance. He’s been, by far, the Yankees’ best and most consistent hitter this season...

Should the Yankees hold a fire sale?

As the ground still shakes from the Aroldis Chapman trade, a thought keeps entering my mind: Wow, I can’t believe how poorly I read this market. I penned an article a few weeks back, arguing that a swap of Andrew Miller for Adrian Gonzalez straight up would make sense for both teams, and boy was I wrong. Part of that was defensible; the calculus has changed since then. The...

If you were wondering what the price of relief pitching is on the trade market right now, it’s exceptionally high. According to ESPN’s Jayson Stark, the Royals are taking calls for closer Wade Davis, but if a team wants him they’ll have to pay up.

Scouting the Prospects in the Aroldis Chapman Deal

I first laid eyes on Gleyber Torres in 2014 at the Rookie-level Arizona League. He was just about a year removed from signing a $1.7 million bonus the year before and, along with Eloy Jimenez, was that summer’s headliner in Mesa. Torres was polished for his age but he was slight of build and his tools were relatively muted compared to some of the other players from the 2013 J2...

Cubs reliever Adam Warren and shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres would be part of the trade.  Chapman has been the subject of intense interest as the Yankees seem to be willing to be sellers as the trade deadline approaches...

Game 98 Recap: The Legend of Nathan Eovaldi

The Yankees are nothing if not a contradiction of themselves. There is so much wrong with the team, yet there is also so much that is right, and then there are times where even more shines through. Nathan Eovaldi has been maddeningly inconsistent this season. He oscillates between brilliance and fiery inferno, sometimes in the course of a single game or inning. There was no oscillation...

Staten Island Yankees to give out 2,500 Tony Reali bobbleheads
