Derek Jeter must hate the $2K+ price tag to speak to him for a moment

Phil Mushnick writes:Poor Derek Jeter who, Michael Kay claimed, hates all this added attention. This farewell tour must be wearing Jeter to a frazzle.Yet, on Sept. 22, before a night game against the Orioles, Jeter is to host a “Meet and Greet Farewell Luncheon” in a Manhattan ballroom/theater. His most devoted fans have been invited to attend — provided they pay tribute in...

He’s barely been in pinstripes for a week and the newest Bronx Bomber, Chase Headley, is already turning this season around for the Yankees. The third baseman was acquired from the San Diego Padres last Tuesday and within hours of arriving to the Big Apple, he was in the ballgame. Headley’s debut for New York last Wednesday will be one he’ll never forget. He came into the ball...

Yankees' Gardner Playing This Week The Way Ellsbury was Expected To

After last night's 3-2 loss to the Rangers, the Yankees are now worse off in the AL East standings (5.5 G B) than they were coming out of the All Star Break.  All the optimism and confidence the team gave to fans after the sweep of the Cincinnati Reds has gone down the drain.  The main culprit for those lost feelings is, of course, the offense.Aside from a 12-run outburst...

Preparing for Michael Pineda’s Return

Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images) This year’s Yankees team seems to have the opposite problem than that of last year—instead of all the position players being injured, it’s been the pitchers who have spent the most time on the disabled list. It’s produced a similar result: through this point last season, the Yankees were 4 games over .500 and had been outscored by nine runs...

Yankees Offense Saves Bullpen After Disastrous Performance

If Tuesday’s win wasn’t the ugliest win this season for the New York Yankees, it’s definitely in the competition. In his post-game interview on the YES Network, David Robertson said, "I feel like the luckiest guy in the world right now." Robertson gave up two ninth inning runs and still managed to get the save. It's easy to believe his fellow relievers felt...

For the Cuban OF Rusney Castillo, the Yankees will have to outbid Boston

Five teams will take private stool samples of the so-called "Brett Gardner with power." (Which, in lieu of Gardy's HRs lately, takes on new meaning.)The five teams: Yankees, Orioles, Astros, Phillies, Redsocks.No reason in this frickin world why we can't outbid Baltimore, Houston and Philly - even if they pooled their money. But Boston - damn - they have been building...

Jeter Passes Yaz In Yankees Loss, But Will He Pass Mo?

Aside from Brett Gardner solidifying his dominance over Yu Darvish, there was nothing else to cheer about in last night's 4-2 Yankee loss to the Texas Rangers. Unless, however, you want to focus on Derek Jeter. That's what I want to do.In case you didn't know, Jeter collected three hits last night, upping his career total to 3,420. With the three hits, he tied and passed Hall...
