    Mark Teixeira

    Everyone’s optimistic until the season starts, then the old injuries and uncertainties ooze back in. Guys who “felt great” in February and early March start the season on the DL. Guys who had that optimistic story about their comeback featured back then fall back into the same ruts they were in before. I worry that…

    The Yankees and Red Sox are playing a game in Steinbrenner Field in Tampa right now. It’s delayed. Why? Yankees/Red Sox is currently being delayed by a bee invasion.

    Over his 15-year career, Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano has logged time at five of the eight non-pitcher positions on the diamond. The only three positions he hasn’t played are catcher, first base and right field. He might make it six this season. ESPN’s Andrew Marchand reports that manager Joe Girardi has kicked around the idea…

    MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch is reporting that Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira will make his Grapefruit League debut on Thursday or Friday this week.

    There have been multiple reports of Mark Texeiria being “stiff” or maybe being behind schedule. But we’ll know soon enough: Joe Girardi said Mark Teixeira will play sometime at the end of next week. #Yankees — Jorge Castillo (@jorgeccastillo) February 26, 2014   Teixeira’s effectiveness may be one of the more important things for the…

    Mark Teixeira

    I’d like to think Mark Teixeira was just trolling Broncos fans here, but I don’t know. Please nobody tell me who won the #SuperBowl. I recorded it and am looking forward to watching what I expect will be a very close game. — Mark Teixeira (@teixeiramark25) February 3, 2014 Best part is the very first…

  16. Mark Teixeira expects to feel stiffness in his wrist for most of the season

    Jan 29, 2014, 11:33 AM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    One of the big “ifs” for the Yankees is “if Mark Teixeira” can return as an effective hitter. Daniel Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal caught up with him and, while he has no pain in his wrist and the doctors say everything is healing correctly, he is still stiff and expects to be for…

  17. Ranking the best 1-2 rotation punches in baseball

    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million. They were in need of rotation help and satisfied that need in a big way by signing the best free agent pitcher on the market. That the Yankees signed him came as…

  18. Masahiro Tanaka will help, but the Yankees need much more than him to be a contender

    The offseason distorts things. The wintertime focus on individual player signings and the underlying optimism everyone seems to have about the prospects of their local nine often makes us forget that, in baseball, one player cannot make the difference between winning and losing. Heck, sometimes even three players don’t. Just ask Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton,…

  19. Phillies among teams talking to Lyle Overbay about a minor league deal

    New York Yankees v Tampa Bay Rays

    We heard a few weeks ago that Lyle Overbay wasn’t drawing much interest on the free agent market, but he is finally getting some calls with spring training right around the corner. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that the Phillies are among the teams who are talking to Overbay about a minor league deal. The…

  20. The massive Hall of Fame post

    Jan 7, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    The Hall of Fame ... has never really married its two founding visions.  Some people still view it as Alexander Cleland’s place for parents and children to enjoy the history of baseball and maybe go to the field for a catch. Some view it the way Ford Frick did, as baseball’s “Hall of Great Americans,” to honor players who represent the fundamental principles that make up the spirit of the American people.

    Part I: A short history First, just a little bit of history. The Baseball Hall of Fame, more or less, was the brainchild of two people. The first knew nothing whatsoever about baseball. The second romanticized the game beyond all reason. You can think about whose spirit still lingers over Cooperstown, N.Y. The first was…

    Mark Teixeira told Bryan Hoch of MLB.com that he is close to 100 percent healthy. Healthy, but still tight: “I feel like I’m healed. I wish I was a little bit looser; my wrist is going to be tight for a while because of the way the surgery was performed … but that’s why I’m…

  22. Lyle Overbay’s phone hasn’t been buzzing much this winter

    Dec 22, 2013, 8:20 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Tampa Bay Rays

    In today’s column for the Boston Globe, Nick Cafardo reports that free agent first baseman/DH Lyle Overbay hasn’t drawn much interest thus far in the off-season. Overbay turns 37 years old next month and has posted a below-average adjusted OPS in each of the past three seasons (88, 95, 87; 100 is average) but he…

  23. Yankees Hot Tub Time Machine

    It just gets better and better with the New York Yankees. They just signed Brian Roberts. I wrote before (in my Ichiro Suzuki essay for the 100 greatest players) that this Yankees team would look awfully good … in 2006. But by essentially replacing Robinson Cano with Brian Roberts, they have — in a weird…

  24. Yankees reportedly in on everyone now that Robinson Cano is off the board

    Dec 6, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Carlos Beltran

    Earlier today, second baseman Robinson Cano signed with the Mariners on a ten-year, $240 million contract, leaving the Yankees out in the cold with an infield that includes the embattled Alex Rodriguez, the hobbled Derek Jeter, the recovering Mark Teixeira, and the recently-signed Kelly Johnson. Now that they don’t have to set aside space for…
