There was a point in the last week where it may have seemed that Hiroki Kuroda was going to pitch elsewhere in 2013. Eat without worry, my friends. Kuroda is indeed coming back to the Yankees next season.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has denied that such a trade has been discussed, and other sources have said that talks between the Bombers and the Miami Marlins are premature at best.
He has to give a lineup change serious consideration. It’s not about ego at this point. It’s about surviving and advancing. Chavez could launch a homer or two over the right-field porch, and there’s little doubt that Ibanez would hit the ball hard.
Both Miguel Cabrera and Mike Trout have had historic 2012 seasons, but only one can take home the AL MVP.
Regardless of where you stand on the new MLB playoff schedule, one thing is for sure: The new format could hurt the teams with the best records, both on the field and in the pocket
“Are jobs riding on this? Not that I know of,” Steinbrenner told reporters outside the Yankees’ clubhouse on Monday. “Jobs are not riding on this. We’ll look at everything in the offseason, as we always do.”
This is a special time right now,’’ the outfielder said. “This is a special experience to play with (Derek) Jeter and the Yankees. When I am an old man I will look back and say, ‘What an experience that was to be on this team.’”
MLB is not talking about expansion now, but it will happen. Don’t be surprised if the “official” discussion begins this offseason and is finalized within a year. In 2015 or ’16, there will be two more teams playing in the Major Leagues.
Buck Showalter’s inspired Orioles are defying logic and mastering the aging Yankees.
A Dodgers-Yankees World Series has not been seen since Tommy Lasorda led the 1981 Dodgers to a six-game victory over the Yankees.
Kuroda might have given fans on Tuesday a preview of things to come. He seems to have a coolness about him that should serve the Yankees well in the playoffs.
Remember when you thought Derek Jeter was finished? Now it’s looking like 4,000 hits is a realistic possibility.
New York rallied to tie the game with solo homers from Russell Martin and Robinson Cano in the eighth and ninth innings, but it wasn’t enough as the A’s topped the Yankees, 3-2, on Friday night.
What the Yankees need is pitching help. There is an assumption that CC Sabathia will return at full strength after his stint on the disabled list with a strained groin. That seems reasonable, but there are no guarantees.
The regular season is not the issue for the Yankees. But once they get to the postseason, there may be dark times around the corner.
