The ticking time bomb of the Yankees rotation

No doubt, the Yankee pitching staff is what kept a poor season from being even worse. Despite the injury and regression of Tanaka, Sabathia, Nova, and Pineda the Yankees managed to stay afloat largely on the shoulders of the acquired Brandon McCarthy and the strong performances youngster Shane Greene turned in. As we all know though, those two are no longer on the team and the rotation has gone from a strong point to being riddled with question mark after question mark.

Why losing Hiroki Kuroda might not be so bad

It’s safe to say that just about the entire Yankee fan base was disappointed when it was announced Friday that Hiroki Kuroda would be leaving the organization to return to Japan to pitch for his first professional team, the Hiroshima Toyo Carp.

With the departure of Martin Prado to the Miami Marlins, the Yankees have been tasked with the dilemma in the form of their 2015 starting second basemen. The team is making strides in getting younger as they have made a point to do with the offseason. Now, they are faced with a decision, Robert Refsnyder or Jose Pirela.

Potential Pinstripes: Brandon League

Ever get a preconceived notion about a player for no apparent reason? That player is simply bad or good in your mind despite the fact you know nothing tangible about them? That’s how I was with Brandon League. Two years ago I had him on my fantasy league and watched him come close to or actually blow week after week for me in fantasy. From that point on I decided Brandon League was bad.

In case you’ve missed it, the New York Yankees have had a HUGE day today. First, the club acquired Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a deal that sent young starting pitcher Shane Greene to the Tigers. Then, the Yankees made another splash signing relief pitcher Andrew Miller.

Chase Headley has been a player I’ve wanted to see in pinstripes for years. Now that it has finally happened, he may be leaving New York just as quickly as he came.

Expectations for Mark Teixeira in 2015

There is no doubting that Mark Teixeira has been major disappointment the past three seasons for the Yankees. He has two seasons remaining on his mega eight-year $180 million contract that he signed following the 2008 season.

Yesterday, ESPN’s Buster Olney reported the Yankees were in serious pursuit of left handed reliever Andrew Miller. He also noted he expects the lefty to sign a four-year deal wherever he ends up. I was honestly surprised at this as it seemed the Yankees were going to end up grossly overpaying for the likes of David Robertson. I am quite happy to see the Yankees are pursuing Miller and are doing so in what appears to be an aggressive manner.
