Wouldn’t it be good to have a future Hall of Famer in that locker room? Wouldn’t it be good to have a guy who has played 19 games in the postseason, and has batted .356 with a .400 OBP in those 19 games?
The Yankees begin life without Derek Jeter this week, facing a future full of holes in an offense already among the American League’s worst.
When it comes to their position players, the Yankees have a lot of decisions to make this offseason. One logical choice to free up a roster spot would be to let soon-to-be 41-year-old free agent Ichiro Suzuki walk. But will they?
Chris Carter snapped a ninth-inning tie with a colossal three-run homer, extending his second-half power surge and sending the Houston Astros to a 7-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
Ichiro Suzuki homered for the first time since last August, prolonging extended slumps against the New York Yankees for Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays.
The idea of replay is to get the calls on the field right, and so far Major League Baseball has done a pretty good job of doing just that. However, there have been certain “gray areas” that have forced umpires into tough spots.
Two weeks into the season, BoSox manager John Farrell has had about enough of baseball’s expanded replay system. And, of course, it’s all thanks to the Yankees.
The Yankees may want to hold on to the guy because he could very well end up being a key component this season. All this talk, at least by the television announcers, of possibly trading Ichiro, should stop immediately.
New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia pitched four scoreless innings in his final tuneup for opening day, a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday.
Ben Zobrist, Desmond Jennings and Matt Joyce homered to help the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 5-4 on Wednesday.
Following the Yankees’ offseason retooling, Suzuki might be better off if he’s traded. But he doesn’t want to think about that possibility too much just yet.
You may not recognize the new team, but you’ll probably recognize the result: just short of 90 wins, just short of the playoffs, way short of expectations.
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 Yankees wasted several opportunities against the wild Matt Moore in a 7-0 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday night that pushed them to the brink of missing out on the postseason for the second time in 19 years.
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.
