Phil Hughes has regained his velocity and forced his way into the Yankees rotation. 2012 could a be bounce-back season for the rejuvenated Hughes.
Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes took a break from his spring training to call in and chat with Boomer & Craig about the Yankees starting rotation, the return of Andy Pettitte, the departure of Jorge Posada and much more…
Derek Jeter and Yankee teammates sensed that Andy Pettitte could make a return from retirement.
Married to one of George Steinbrenner’s daughters, Steve Swindal was a general partner of the Yankees from 1998-06 and chairman of the Yankees’ parent company. These days, Swindal works with players who hope to join the Yankees — or any other team in the big leagues.
Valentine said yesterday he doesn’t believe the Yankees practice Jeter’s famous flip from 2001. Well guess what was on the schedule today? Cutoffs and relays.
Derek Jeter says he has no plans to follow Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte into retirement — yet.
The 42-year-old closer says he has reached a decision about whether he will retire or return in 2013 but said he won’t reveal it until “maybe October.”
The Pirates believe that Yankees’ castoff A.J. Burnett can find success in Pittsburgh, away from the pressures of New York.
The first glimmer of spring is on the horizon as Yankees pitchers and catchers get ready to report for training on Sunday.
Jorge Posada was watching television when he saw speculation on which teams were interested in signing him as a free agent. “They put my face on different uniforms,” he said. “And it didn’t look good.”
Joe Girardi joined Boomer & Craig for the first time ever this morning and had a nice little chat about baseball, football and much more.
Jorge Posada’s heart is what fans loved on the field, but it was also on display off the field, especially today, during an emotional statement to a crowded Yankee Stadium press conference room.
“It’s been an honor,” said a teary-eyed Posada. “I could never wear another uniform. … I will forever be a Yankee.”
From pinstripe legends to foes on the diamond, Posada left an indelible mark on those who watched him play.
Bombers fans knew this day was coming. Yankees star Jorge Posada will announce his retirement at a press conference Tuesday morning, the team said Monday.
