The Yankees are among the team interested in Tanaka, who was a Japan League record 24-0 in the regular season. He then closed out Game 7 as the Eagles won the Japan Series.
He was the right man at the right time for a club that had fallen on hard times before 1996. And he didn’t mess it up when it would have been so easy to do just that.
When Craig learned about an opportunity to bid on a lunch with Alex Rodriguez, his head started spinning just thinking about all of the possibilities.
The manager of the Yankees is generally used to acquiring great players, not losing them. Joe Girardi sat down to meet the media Tuesday and had the chance to publicly address for the first time the loss of Robinson Cano to Seattle.
The Yanks are still looking for a second baseman/third baseman type and are trying to bring the lineup “back to the top two or three offenses in the game. We need more work there.”
“A lot of the people I’ve met in New York have always said that true New Yorkers are Mets fans,” Granderson said. “So I’m excited to get a chance to see them all out there.”
“We got pretty close throughout the years, but I understand it’s a business. It’s a business on both sides. I would have liked to have played with him longer but you understand it’s a business, guys move on.”
Several people from other teams I’ve spoken to think the Yankees need Brett Gardner as insurance for an older and injury-prone outfield.
Funny how the twists and turns take you. Torre turned down a trade from the Mets to the Yankees in 1976 because he thought he’d have a chance to manage the Amazin’s.
With that said, today’s show began the way yesterday’s concluded, with Craig advocating for ‘The Boss’ to get his due and documenting what he is calling a grave injustice.
“I got choked up real quick,” Torre, who won four World Series titles managing the Yankees, said on WFAN radio Monday. “It’s something I’m sort of in a daze right now about.”
With the additions of Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury, the Yankees have a surplus of outfielders. So could a trade be in the works?
The plaque will pay tribute to Mandela’s June 1990 visit to Yankee Stadium, the New York Times reported.
Notre Dame finished 8-4 this season, but had no bowl affiliation this year. The spot in the Pinstripe Bowl was open because the Big 12 did not have enough Bowl-eligible teams.
The Yankees are checking in on former Mets starter Mike Pelfrey, according to WFAN/CBS Sports baseball insider John Heyman.
