Several people from other teams I’ve spoken to think the Yankees need Brett Gardner as insurance for an older and injury-prone outfield.
With the additions of Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury, the Yankees have a surplus of outfielders. So could a trade be in the works?
It raises a uniquely New York paradox. Can the Yankees miss the playoffs and still be a success? Can you wear your Jeter Snuggie through a fall and winter wasteland of hot-stove chatter? Yes.
Girardi expects leadoff hitter Brett Gardner will be out for a lengthy stretch and possibly the rest of the regular season.
The Yankees don’t need this right now: leadoff man Brett Gardner is heading to New York for tests on his ailing oblique.
Ichiro Suzuki scored on Brandon Workman’s wild pitch with two outs in the ninth inning Sunday, and the Yankees overcame Mariano Rivera’s blown save.
David Huff was ineffective as he have up nine runs on Saturday. The Red Sox continued their dominance over the Yankees, taking three of three games so far this series.
Ivan Nova threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout,as the New York Yankees edged Baltimore 2-0 Saturday.
Derek Jeter comes back on Monday night. Yes, again. Jeter represents the last bit of hope for the Yankees, hope that he might be the final piece of the puzzle for a team that’s clawed back into the playoff race.
Don’t look now, but the Yankees just may be putting themselves in a position to make a run at the playoffs.
This ugly mess only appears to be getting uglier. According to ESPN, Alex Rodriguez’s representatives are planning on filing a medical malpractice lawsuit against Yankees team doctor Chris Ahmad.
Despite all of his baggage, A-Rod has become a rallying figure for the Bombers on the field and in the dugout.
Don’t look now, but the Bombers are creeping up in the standings with Alex Rodriguez back in the middle of the lineup and Alfonso Soriano absolutely crushing the ball.
Minus Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning, the New York Yankees used a pair of relievers to close out the Los Angeles Angels 2-1 Monday night and preserve the win for Hiroki Kuroda.
Out of everyday players, Gardner has been the Yankees’ MVP in an unusual season.
