Thank you Derek Jeter

    Tuesday, February 18, 2014, 10:44 PM [General]

    I'm still shocked that the 2014 season will be Derek Jeter final season.  More than half of my life I've watched Derek Jeter play for the Yankees.  Derek Jeter is my all-time favorite baseball player!  I truly hope the Yankees allow him to leave in style.  Another World Series Championship would be a great note to retire on.  Thank you for everything Derek Jeter.  I truly wish you a lot of success in your post-baseball career.

    Thanks to Alex Rodriguez the Yankees have more money for 2014!

    Saturday, January 11, 2014, 5:06 PM [General]

    Hello fellow Yankees Fan,


      What a historical day for MLB and the New York Yankees.  Alex Rodriguez is suspended for the entire 2014 season (Including playoffs).  This means Brian Cashman has more money to spend on free agency!  The Yankees I personally feel were a much better team without Alex Rodriguez.  After all they did win 26 World Series championships without AROD!

    Let's focus on the Yankees ON the field!  Especially the one's that will win the Yankees their 28th World Series Championship!

    The Yankees are spending money again like it's 2008 going into 2009!

    Monday, December 9, 2013, 11:28 PM [General]

    Hello Yankeesland,


      The Yankees enjoy spending lots of money after missing the playoffs completely.  After the 2008 season the Yankees have acquired 445 million dollars’ worth of free agents in contracts over one or more seasons.  CC Sabathia for $160 Million, A.J. Burnett for $82.5 Million dollars, Mark Teixeira for $180 Million, Andy Pettitte for $5.5 Million, Chien-Ming Wang for 5 million and Damaso Marte for $11 Million. Sure they had to make a big splash due to opening up New Yankee Stadium; however those acquisitions have paid off dividends with the Yankees winning the 2009 World Series!

         So what happened in 2013?  The Yankees missed the playoffs, Mariano Rivera retires & the Boston Red Sox win the world series!  Therefore the Yankees must spend a lot of money in order to make it back into the playoffs and win another world series.  Brian Cashman and his team have had a big decision to make on behalf of the Yankees; do we commit $300 million dollars to Robinson Cano & Curtis Granderson ($240 million for Cano and $60 Million for Granderson) or should we spend wisely and go after 6 free agents for $307 Million?   So far I can agree getting more bang for the buck seems like the logical move to do.  By signing Brian McCann for $85 Million/5 years, Jacoby Ellsbury $153 Million/7 years, Brendan Ryan 5 Million/2 years, Kelly Johnson 2 Million/1 year, Hiroki Kuroda 16 Million/1 year. 

         I believe the Yankees have more money to spend if you use the 2008 off-season going into 2009 budget.  $445 Million - $307 Million = $139 Million.  I’d like to see the Yankees go after pitching!  If I were GM for of the Yankees I would go after Masahiro Tanaka, Ubaldo Jimenez, Ervin Santana, Matt Garza, Fernando Rodney, Grant Balfour. I would also be willing to trade Brett Grander and Ichiro since the Yankees outfield is very full (Wells, Soriano, Gardner, Ichiro, Ellsbury & Beltran) too many cooks in that outfield kitchen! 

         2013 isn’t over yet and the Yankees I’m sure have several more moves up their sleeve; however I’m enjoying what I’ve seen so far and I can’t wait until the 2014 season.

    Ideas for the Yankees 2014 season!

    I know the Yankees always have a clean shaven look.  Why not change the facial hair policy and allow the Yankees players to grow beards!  Hey it worked for the 2013 World Series Champions; so why not allow it for the 2014 World Series Champion New York Yankees!

    Attention Real Yankees Fans,

      The ship isn't sinking!  Today was only one game.  Let's not get into panic mode yet.  I vow to watch the Yankees no matter what and so should you.  Here's why:
