  1. Indians, Yankees both in on Mark Reynolds, Kevin Youkilis

    Dec 5, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

    Mark Reynolds

    Both the Indians and Yankees have met with the agent for non-tendered infielder Mark Reynolds in Nashville. Those two teams are also known to be interested in Kevin Youkilis, who lost one lessor suitor when his old team, the White Sox, signed Jeff Keppinger today. Youkilis has also been mentioned in connection with the Dodgers…

  2. Yunel Escobar a possibility for Rays, A’s and Red Sox

    Dec 4, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    Yunel Escobar

    While there are bigger names out there to be had, perhaps no player is more likely to be traded this week than new Marlins infielder Yunel Escobar. Escobar was mostly included in the Jose Reyes–Josh Johnson megadeal for salary purposes, and the Marlins have been intent on moving him since the day they picked him…

  3. Yankees weighing Jeff Keppinger, Kevin Youkilis for third base

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:51 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger

    While the Yankees have at least touched base with free agent Kevin Youkilis, Jeff Keppinger appears to be their primary target at the moment. Yahoo! Sports’ Jeff Passan reports that the two sides met yesterday and that the Bombers’ interest in Keppinger is “very strong.” Keppinger is the more realistic target, given that Youkilis is…

  4. Yankees could receive insurance funds if Alex Rodriguez can’t play

    Dec 4, 2012, 2:21 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    So, the best thing A-Rod can do for the Yankees now is not play? CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman reports that the Yankees have insurance on Alex Rodriguez‘s contract that would cover 75-80 percent of his salary if he proves unable to play due to injuries. Rodriguez is currently expected to miss 4-6 months following hip surgery…

  5. Derek Jeter says “no question” he’ll be in the Opening Day lineup

    Dec 3, 2012, 4:27 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Alex Rodriguez may end up missing the entire first half following hip surgery, but Derek Jeter thinks he’ll be in the Opening Day lineup despite breaking his ankle in the ALCS. Just two weeks ago Yankees manager Joe Girardi called Jeter’s status for Opening Day “a little bit of a question mark” but today during…

  6. Padres official: Chase Headley won’t be traded

    Dec 3, 2012, 4:11 PM EDT

    Chase Headley

    That’s the report from Joel Sherman of the New York Post, so Yankees fans best set their hearts on someone else. Sherman quotes as unnamed Padres official saying, “we’re not going to move (Chase) Headley.” Headley was being talked about as a candidate to replace the injured Alex Rodriguez at third base for the Bombers.…

  7. Report: Asdrubal Cabrera’s no-trade includes Red Sox, Tigers

    Dec 3, 2012, 2:37 PM EDT

    Asdrubal Cabrera

    Some players with partial no-trade clauses choose to put the teams they really don’t want to play for on their block list. Others simply pick the teams most likely to trade for them, figuring that gives them more control over their future. Asdrubal Cabrera appears to have gone the latter route. A source told WEEI.com’s…

  8. Yankees announce 4-6 month recovery timetable for Alex Rodriguez

    Dec 3, 2012, 1:45 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees - Game 5

    Making official what was reported this morning, the Yankees announced that Alex Rodriguez will undergo left hip surgery to repair a torn labrum and bone impingement. His recovery timetable is expected to be 4-6 months and because the surgery is being delayed until January in order for Rodriguez to build up the necessary strength that…

  9. Alex Rodriguez needs more hip surgery, out until midseason

    Dec 3, 2012, 10:05 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    This morning George King of the New York Post wrote that Alex Rodriguez‘s surgically repaired right hip remains damaged and now his colleague Joel Sherman reports that Rodriguez “almost certainly needs more hip surgery”–this time on his left hip–and is expected to miss at least part of 2013. Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily…

  10. A-Rod, Yankees worried about his hip; call it “a big issue”

    Dec 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Yankees' Rodriguez strikes out against the Orioles during Game 4 of their MLB ALDS baseball playoff series in New York

    Even though we’ve said this every year since 2009, it remains true: for the Yankees to keep up  their winning ways, they need a healthy and productive Alex Rodriguez.  George King of the New York Post reports, however, that A-Rod’s surgically repaired right hip is damaged, with an insider telling him that it’s “a big issue.”…

  11. I wonder if Bonds and Clemens might make the Hall of Fame this year after all

    Nov 29, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    clemens getty

    My strong presumption is that Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens will not make the Hall of Fame this year. I think, at best, they get about 50% of the vote and stay in that limbo-land until the anti-PED crowd’s fever breaks. But I just read something that makes me wonder if I’m being too pessimistic.…

  12. Evan Longoria signs six-year, $100 million extension with Rays

    Nov 26, 2012, 10:01 AM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    Evan Longoria was already under the Rays’ control through 2016 thanks to a long-term contract he signed literally one week after his big-league debut in 2008, but today the two sides agreed to a six-year, $100 million extension that runs through 2022. By combining the remainder of his previous contract and the $100 million extension…

  13. Robinson Cano will not be giving the Yankees a hometown discount

    Nov 9, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    More from Joel Sherman, who notes that while the Yankees have more immediate concerns, their biggest overall decision involves a long term deal for Robinson Cano.  Sherman says: I reported last month Cano was telling teammates he is expecting a 10-year contract at the top of the market. Now, a confidant of Cano informs me…

  14. Brian Cashman: “We’re not trading Alex Rodriguez”

    Nov 8, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Brian Cashman head

    Every couple weeks now Yankees general manager Brian Cashman reiterates that he has no plans to trade Alex Rodriguez. Cashman did so again yesterday, telling the assembled media at the GM meetings: I’ve already been on record right after the postseason, we’re not trading Alex. So hopefully the Alex stuff stops. I’m reiterating, we’re not…

    Nov 8, 2012, 1:25 AM EDT

    I would have preferred to have posted this last week, but here’s the remainder of the updated top 111 free agents column. In case you missed it, the top 50 was posted last Friday. Players in the top 111 are ranked based not on how I view them, but more on how I believe teams…

  16. It’s always about the Yankees

    Scene: New York Post newsroom, bottom of the tenth inning, Game 4 of the World Series. Editor: He struck Cabrera out! It’s over. Joel Sherman: Oh well. Season’s over. Good night. Editor: Wait, where are you going? I need a column on how this relates to the Yankees, and I need it by morning! Joel…

  17. Heyman: Joe Girardi tried to spare A-Rod’s feelings in playoffs

    Oct 26, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez, Joe Girardi

    Sources told CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman that Yankees manager Joe Girardi had a special request for the Yankee Stadium PA announcer when he removed Alex Rodriguez from postseason games: he had Rodriguez’s name omitted from the switch. Rodriguez was pulled for a pinch-hitter three times in his six postseason starts. Raul Ibanez, of course, homered…

  18. Hal Steinbrenner says Alex Rodriguez is getting too much of the blame

    Oct 19, 2012, 7:01 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner had a telephone interview with the Associated Press earlier today and you’ll be shocked to learn that he was asked about Alex Rodriguez. While Steinbrenner wouldn’t discuss any speculation about whether Rodriguez will be back in New York next season, he did say that the the 37-year-old is getting too much…

  19. Yankee Stadium boos “spooked a lot of guys” according to anonymous Yankee

    Oct 19, 2012, 10:10 AM EDT

    ghost boo

    Earlier this week Nick Swisher talked about how getting booed by the home crowd at Yankee Stadium really upset him and apparently he wasn’t alone. John Harper of the New York Daily News spoke to an unnamed Yankees player who claims the booing affected the team’s performance: I really think the booing spooked a lot…

  20. This just isn’t the time for Yankees to trade Alex Rodriguez

    Oct 19, 2012, 1:04 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    As far as I can tell, Alex Rodriguez committed two crimes this month. He played pretty horribly in the playoffs, which hardly put him among the minority of Yankees hitters, and he embarrassed his team by reportedly trying to get a woman’s digits from the dugout. In the case of the latter, absolutely no one…

  21. Alex Rodriguez says he has no plans to waive no-trade clause

    Oct 18, 2012, 9:33 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    The Yankees have been ousted from the postseason, but the saga of Alex Rodriguez continues. Rodriguez told Peter Botte of the New York Daily News after today’s loss to the Tigers that he has no plans to waive his no-trade clause and intends to return to the Yankees next season. “That’s correct. I will be…

  22. Ranking the blame as Yankees get swept

    Oct 18, 2012, 7:47 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    It takes more than a couple of goats for a team to get swept in a seven-game series. Let’s run down the five people most responsible for the Yankee meltdown. Derek Jeter‘s ankle not being a person, we’ll leave it out of this. 5. Eric Chavez – Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily, yet Chavez was worse.…

  23. Alex Rodriguez flies out in pinch-hit appearance in Game 4 of ALCS

    Oct 18, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Max Scherzer was pulled for left-hander Drew Smyly with two on and two outs in the top of the sixth inning, so Joe Girardi called on Alex Rodriguez to pinch-hit for Raul Ibanez. However, there was no redemption to be found. Rodriguez hit a routine fly ball to center field to strand two runners and…

  25. Alex Rodriguez would not block a trade to a big market team

    Oct 18, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    alex rodriguez getty

    Every fall I wonder what the dominant hot stove story is going to be. The one where, every time we do a post about it, someone says “I am SO SICK of this!” Usually it’s a big free agent like Cliff Lee or Albert Pujols. Sometimes it’s the story of a little free agent —…
