Do the Yankees really need an FA big bat?

Brian Cashman recently stated that the Yankees are after a big bat. Now the club has some room to spend after they traded away Brian McCann and after Mark Teixeira hung up his spikes, it appears that the team is willing to spend again.

Solid outing of Tanaka in 4-1 win over Rays

The New York Yankees won 4-1 in Tampa Bay last night. The team did not hit well once again, as it collected four hits but they also drew three walks.

Sabathia’s injury a blessing in disguise

Last night C.C. Sabathia left the game in the third inning with one out to go. Once again he was bothered by knee problems. I guess you know that I haven’t been too high on Sabathia in the last seasons. He isn’t his old self. This showed early in the season. He tried a different… Continue reading Sabathia’s injury a blessing in disguise
