The Yankees are no longer the bullies on the block. Retire the Darth Vader masks. The Jeter babies can burn those nauseating “Got Rings?” shirts. Lose the elitism.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman announced last month that Chase Headley would be New York’s everyday third baseman in 2015. Apparently A-Rod didn’t get that memo.
The Yankees struggled at the plate last season, but Brian Cashman still hasn’t found anyone to teach them different.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson isn’t the only one interested in landing the four-time All-Star.
The question is, can fireballer Nathan Eovaldi take the next step, a la Nolan Ryan? If he does, then Brian Cashman will look like a true genius.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said on Tuesday that Alex Rodriguez’s days as an everyday fielder are over and he hopes A-Rod will be New York’s full-time designated hitter.
Alex Rodriguez is going to have to adjust his expectations. Especially now that the Yankees have handed $52 million to third baseman Chase Headley.
Chase Headley is staying with the Yankees, a sign that New York is not counting on Alex Rodriguez to play third base regularly.
Brian Cashman left the Winter Meetings in San Diego on Thursday without needed pieces for his baseball team, but that doesn’t mean the Yankees are a finished product for 2015.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Matthew Krause, the team’s strength and conditioning coordinator, visited A-Rod on Wednesday in Miami.
When you are promoting Andrew Miller and making a run at Chase Headley, you might as well tell your fans you’re going to try really hard to finish in third place next season.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman revealed Tuesday he had no interest in retaining Robertson once New York agreed Friday to a $36 million, four-year deal with Andrew Miller.
Imagine. Andrew Miller in the seventh, Dellin Betances in the eighth, and David Robertson to close. It’s the type of pen a lot of teams only dream about.
Both teams have much to do. If they have a successful Winter Meetings, or at least lay the groundwork for some post-meetings deals, then perhaps they can talk about the postseason in a serious manner.
Brian Cashman has holes to fill. He doesn’t have the farm talent to fill them all, or leverage for a trade. So that leaves free agency. It’s the Yankees’ way.
