The Bombers are open for business! Among the storylines: Who will nab the No. 5 spot in the rotation? Will Mariano Rivera be as dominant as ever? And what’s up at catcher?
The Yankees are good, not great. And that’s probably not good enough, especially when you gauge how they gouge you at the turnstiles. $5 waters and $10 beers don’t taste too hot when the team gets cold and old.
2013 brings major issues and tons of uncertainty for the aging, payroll-trimming New York Yankees.
For a team that trades on tradition, symbolism and success, the Yankees just took a giant leap toward remaining competitive, if not contenders, in 2013 by signing Andy Pettitte.
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.
The pinstriped recipe for success this season will take a backseat to the sudden surge of southpaw pitching. The Yankees will remain in the playoffs for as long as CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte pitch to the back of their baseball cards.
Ivan Nova has been dropped from the Yankees’ rotation after a pair of poor outings, and David Phelps will replace him as Tuesday night’s starter against the Red Sox.
Mark Teixeira returns to the Yankees’ lineup tonight and will play first base.
Ivan Nova didn’t do much to help his case for a spot in the Yankees’ potential playoff rotation. If anything, he made New York’s path to the postseason a little tougher.
Brandon Morrow and two relievers combined on a five-hitter, pitching the Toronto Blue Jays to a 6-0 victory over New York on Thursday night that trimmed the Yankees’ tight lead in the AL East.
Ivan Nova was strong in his return from the DL as the Yankees defeated the Rays 5-3 on Saturday.
Andy Pettitte wants to help the Yankees right now, but he’ll have to wait a few days to do so. The five-time World Series champion will start for the Yankees when the Bombers take on the Blue Jays on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.
Ivan Nova was activated for the DL on Saturday, but Freddy Garcia will start for the Yankees on Sunday.
A-Rod is back, Mark Teixeira and Ivan Nova are close and Andy Pettitte is making strides. Here comes the cavalry — and boy, do the Yankees need it.
It’s time to officially ponder –- if not pummel –- the trade that sent Jesus Montero to Seattle and brought Pineda to, well, rehab. All the signs point toward Ollie Perez Avenue. Or, worse … Carl Pavano.
