Chase Headley Resigns with the Yankees

Chase Headley resigned with the Yankees today for 4 years, $52 million. This was all-in-all a great deal for both sides. Not too many years, and not too much money for the Yankees. I’m sure there was more money and years out there for Headley (San Fran) but he genuinely likes playing for the Yankees so he probably opted for less to stay. This deal also solidifies the infield. Teixeira will be at first. Prado will be at second. Didi will be at short and Chase will be at third. This deal takes a lot of pressure off both Rob Refsnyder … Continue reading Chase Headley Resigns with the Yankees

Yankees Sign Left-Handed Reliever Andrew Miller

It’s official. The New York Yankees have signed left-handed reliever Andrew Miller to a four year, thirty-six million dollar contract. Bold, beautiful move here by Cashman. He wasn’t going to let a pitcher of Miller’s caliber fall to a team like the Astros. Miller is primarily a two ball pitcher with a fastball and a nasty slider.

Didi tweeted this one out there as sign of #RE2PECT for Captain. Certainly an invaluable asset, no doubt. 24-year-old, Curacao-born shortstop, Didi Gregorius has been acquired by the Yankees in a three team trade with the Diamondbacks and Tigers. In the trade, Arizona receives left-handed starting pitcher, Robbie Ray, and shortstop prospect, Domingo Leyba. The Yankees also sent Shane Green to Detroit. This one hit me hard. I was a big … Continue reading Not Only Did the Yankees Receive a Shortstop, They Received an Artist

The Long Overdue and Highly Anticipated Yankees Blog (By a Yankees Fan)

Hey, guys. Doesn’t really matter who I am, but I’m a Yankee fan and that’s all that matters here. For too long, this wonderful website has very clearly lacked the respect and knowledge of Bronx baseball and I’m here to fill that void. Let’s get into it: Get it, Cash! There are big questions in the starting rotation and legitimate health is one of them. CC, Masahiro, Pineda, and Nova could not stay healthy last year. Starting pitchers going down has always been a Yankees mainstay and it is honestly something I’ve come to expect. But, as is, the rotation … Continue reading The Long Overdue and Highly Anticipated Yankees Blog (By a Yankees Fan)
