Who says that professional athletes aren’t role models? We know that plenty of them aren’t, but there are still many so-called “good guys” in sports. Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano appears to be one of those good guys.
For today’s blog I would like to highlight one of the funniest, most lovable, most quotable pitchers to ever wear the pinstripes — Lefty Gomez.
Baseball is holding its annual Jackie Robinson Day on the 66th anniversary of his breaking Major League Baseball’s color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
Mark Teixeira hopes to get the protective brace on his injured right wrist removed on Monday. Speaking before New York’s exhibition game at the Washington Nationals on Friday, he said his goal is to rejoin the Yankees as soon as May 1.
“We are committed as a family to be in this long-term,” Steinbrenner said. “We enjoy this, this is why we’re all involved — all of my siblings. And we’re going to continue, every year, to field a championship-caliber team.”
It’s a question that seemed unthinkable during the winter months and at the start of spring training: which team will have more talent on April 1?
As of now, newly-signed Brennan Boesch is slated to be the starting left fielder. But if and when Wells becomes a member of the Bronx Bombers, he’ll immediately take over as the everyday left fielder, according to a report.
“We’ve got to do what’s right for him,” Cashman said. “Whatever’s right for him will be right for us. I’m not saying he’s going to be DL’ed, but I can’t tell you he won’t be. I don’t think it’s anything serious. I just think it’s a timing issue.”
Derek Jeter said he was removed from Tuesday’s lineup for “precautionary” reasons because his surgically-repaired left ankle feels “stiff.”
The Yankees and Mets are among teams that are interested in outfielder Brennan Boesch, according to CBSSports.com/WFAN insider Jon Heyman.
Robinson Cano’s father says he expects the New York Yankees to re-sign their All-Star second baseman rather than let him leave through free agency after the season.
“We’re not commenting any further than acknowledging that we made a significant offer and had some dialogue with his agent, Scott Boras,” Cashman said. “But other than that, there’s not much really to say.”
“He’s just not going to fit our needs,” Cashman said. “It’s the same reason we didn’t bring him in last year. We need somebody who can play the outfield every day.”
“This is probably going to spark a bunch of stuff, and (Yankees PR director Jason) Zillo is going to be mad at me, but it’s one of those things where it’s like, do you think you have the capability to start? Yes,” Chamberlain said.
Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis was scratched from New York’s lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Phillies for precautionary reasons. The 33-year-old said that he feels a cramp above his left hip, but the team is calling it a sore left oblique.
