    Dec 8, 2012, 3:16 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers - Game Four

    And now, for the least shocking story of the day. Mark Feinsand and Christian Red of the New York Daily News were told by sources that Robinson Cano will not accept a hometown discount in order to stay with the Yankees when his contract is up after next season. “I don’t think he’ll be with…

  2. Joe Mauer, David Wright commit to Team USA for WBC

    Dec 3, 2012, 5:22 PM EDT

    Joe Mauer

    We’ll hear plenty about players opting out of the World Baseball Classic over the next couple of months. How about a couple of guys that are in: Minnesota’s Joe Mauer and the Mets’ David Wright. The Mauer commitment makes it less of a big deal now if Buster Posey decides not to play for Team…

  3. If Robinson Cano plays in the WBC it’ll be for the Dominican Republic

    Robinson Cano‘s U.S. citizenship is brand spankin’ new, but if he decides to play in the World Baseball Classic, it’ll be for the Dominican Republic.  He spoke to Mark Feinsand of the Daily News: “I still have to play for the Dominican, even if I didn’t want to,” the Yankee second baseman said while letting…

    The Red Sox have plenty of holes to fill on their roster this winter, but they hope to make some time to keep one of their cornerstone players in the fold for the long haul. Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston was told by several league sources that the Red Sox plan to discuss a possible…

    The debate has raged on for months. And now we finally have a winner. Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera was named the American League MVP this evening by the Baseball Writers Association of America. Despite the impassioned and often contentious arguments dating back to the summer, the balloting wasn’t all that close. Cabrera received 22…

    Congratulations to Robinson Cano, who apparently did not go 1-for-18 on his citizenship test: Very proud day for me, I just became a US citizen, God bless America! say.ly/WIy4zC7 — Robinson Cano (@RobinsonCano) November 13, 2012    

  8. 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…

  11. The Wilson Defensive Awards were announced last night

    Nov 5, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Michael Bourn

    We mentioned this last week, but last night the inaugural Wilson Defensive Awards were announced on MLB Network. As we said previously: sponsored awards like this are kind of “whatever,” but in a world where people still take the Gold Glove awards seriously, I’m cool with any viable competitor. As you’ll recall, there were awards for the…

  13. Gold Glove finalists announced

    gold glove

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

  14. Yankees exercise options on Curtis Granderson, Robinson Cano, David Aardsma

    Oct 29, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    curtis granderson getty

    In a pair of no-brainer moves the Yankees have exercised their 2013 options on Curtis Granderson and Robinson Cano. Granderson and Cano will each make $15 million, and they’ll both be eligible for free agency next winter. Despite a pair of ugly postseason performances obviously Granderson and Cano on one-year commitments are easy calls. Mark…

  15. 2012 projections review: second base

    Robinson Cano

    This is the third entry in a position-by-position review of my 2012 projections. Along with looking at my top preseason top 10 (for fantasy purposes) from each spot, I’m highlighting some other interesting players. Any requests for players not covered can be made in the comments. 1. Robinson Cano – Yankees Projection: .309/.362/.520, 30 HR,…

  16. Pablo Sandoval’s three-homer game is most impressive in postseason history

    Oct 25, 2012, 12:34 AM EDT

    Pablo Sandoval

    Before Pablo Sandoval got to Justin Verlander twice and Al Alburquerque once for his first ever three-game game in the World Series opener, eight players in major league history had hit three homers in a postseason game: Babe Ruth (NYY) – Game 4, 1926 WS – 3-for-3, 4 RBI, 2 BB Babe Ruth (NYY) –…

  17. 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…

  18. 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.…

  20. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    trout getty

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

  22. Looking ahead to tonight’s playoff action

    Oct 17, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lohse delivers a pitch to a Washington Nationals batter during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in St. Louis

    Sad jams:  this could be the last time we have multiple baseball games on one day this year. What’s on tap: Giants vs. Cardinals, 4PM Eastern: Fox:  The series is tied 1-1, but in some ways it feels like the Cardinals are behind. Probably because their starting pitching is in need of some stability. Indeed,…

  23. Joe Girardi goes down with his hand-picked nine

    Oct 17, 2012, 12:07 AM EDT

    Joe Girardi, Brian Cashman

    Benched sluggers Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher never budged, and lefty Phil Coke was allowed to face three left-handers and switch-hitter Mark Teixeira in escaping the ninth inning of Detroit’s 2-1 win over the Yankees on Tuesday. Coke replaced Justin Verlander after the ace’s 132nd pitch retired Brett Gardner for the first out of the…

    Uh oh, people. Justin Verlander has a lead. Tigers designated hitter Delmon Young launched a solo home run to left field in the bottom of the fourth inning off Yankees starter Phil Hughes, pushing Detroit ahead 1-0 in this ALCS Game 3. Hughes then walked Andy Dirks and departed with a trainer after appearing to…
