YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees brass drove all the joy, excitement out of the Stadium

If the previous Yankee Stadium was a “cathedral,” this one, almost from Day 1, sounds like one. Perhaps the life was drained from Friday night’s crowd after a 1-hour, 42-minute rain delay then a 2-1, 10-inning game that ran another 3:32. Still, the Yankees — the New York Yankees, for crying out loud — were...

New York Yankees: Pitching woes spell trouble as the trade deadline looms

The New York Yankees hit the ground sprinting back in April and had a 21-9 record by May 8th. Since then, however, the Yankees have not been the same team as they have posted a 19-24 record since those strong first 30 games. Luckily for the Yankees, those 21 wins in 30 games don’t go bad, and that start has almost everything to do with why the Yankees are still, somehow, in first...

Gary Sanchez killed the Yankees when he wasn’t saving them

On a day Jorge Posada praised him, Gary Sanchez reminded Yankees fans there still is learning to be done before he can reserve a spot in future Old-Timers’ Day games alongside team legends.

Comeback falls just short, Yankees drop finale 7-6 to Rangers

Source: FanGraphs Well, at least the Yankees showed some Fighting Spirit in Sunday’s game. They very nearly rallied to erase an early 7-0 deficit — they brought the winning run to the plate in the ninth! — but ultimately could not finish the comeback. Alas. The final score as 7-6 Rangers. The Yankees have lost ten of their last 12 games now, yet somehow remain in first place...

Game 73: Old Timers’ Day

The Yankees are bad now, maybe forever but probably only temporarily, and this afternoon we’ll get to forget all about the 2017 Yankees for a few hours. Today is the 71st annual Old Timers’ Day, the franchise’s annual celebration of their unmatched history. Pretty much no other team can do something like this. The Dodgers tried it a year or two ago and it was kinda sad. Based...

We need to talk about Tyler Clippard

If Trump were running the Yankees, he'd be talking about "a Second Amendment solution," and the crowd would chant, "LOCK HIM UP!" If Alphonso were running the team, it would be worse. Things got so bad last night for Tyler Clippard that he was trending on Twitter. It's a cruel world, the Yankiverse. Brutal, indeed. So this is how it's done, the modern day tar-and-feathering.

Evaluation of the New York Yankees starting rotation

The New York Yankees have had a pitching dilemma for quite some time now. There is a lack of consistency in the rotation and what one starter does tends to give a polar opposite effect to another pitcher. At no point this season has every starter in the rotation been in tune with one another to form problems for opposing lineups. Without a doubt these starters all have the capability...
