Over the last few days, the Yankees have lobbed a number of verbal grenades in the direction of Derek Jeter. One surprising thing about the entire saga has been the amount of support the club has gotten in this battle with the Yankee captain. I expected many more indignant fans to rip the Yankees and [...]
Tuesday was a big day for the Yankee Hot Stove. The biggest rumors surrounded top Yankee target Cliff Lee. First, it was rumored that the Yankees were considering offering Lee $115 million over five years, an expensive but fair evaluation of his [...]
Yesterday, the Yankees declined to offer arbitration to all of their free agents (Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Lance Berkman, and Kerry Wood) except for Javier Vazquez.
We can quite easily say that offering to Vazquez was the riskiest thing the Yankees could have done. He had, by far, the worst year of the five and [...]
Though Mariano Rivera really deserves his own post, we’re including him in our bullpen Season in Review, primarily because we’ve already done so many individual player reviews that it just seemed easier this way.
We touched on the Yankee bullpen in the Positive Storylines from 2010 post a [...]
Some fans have argued that the Yanks are treating Derek unfairly, saying “How can you give all that money to A-Rod and NOT pay Derek?” and they’re right. We should treat both of these players exactly the same. Hence, I would like to propose the following clause be added to Derek Jeter’s contract:

Today was a day loaded with news, so let’s dive right in.
1) Ken Davidoff is reporting that Andy Pettitte is leaning towards a return to the Yankees in 2011. This is fantastic news, as it makes the Yankees a bit less reliant on signing Cliff Lee and means that they are likely to [...]
SG has released the first round of 2011 Yankee pitcher projections. Please click here for my analysis of CAIRO’s 2011 hitting projections.
The below pitching projection table shows what I expect would be the starting rotation (in the event that Cliff [...]
(The following is being syndicated from The Captain’s Blog).
Derek Jeter’s contract negotiations have easily been the most widely discussed topic in Yankeeland, despite there really not being much news to report. For some reason, several media types have used the off-season lull to repeatedly denigrate Jeter to the point of portraying [...]
In the grand baseball scheme of things, Alex Rodriguez had a solid, if unspectacular season in 2010, posting the 4th-best fWAR (3.9) among third basemen in the American League. However, the gap between A-Rod and the third-best fWARs (Jose Bautista and Evan Longoria at 6.9 each) [...]
While we at TYU have spilled a lot of virtual ink over the Derek Jeter contract, we’ve seldom touched on the Mariano Rivera contract situation. The negotiations have gotten much less press than the Jeter ones, so let’s check in.
Last we heard, Mariano Rivera wanted a two year contract. Last night, we learned that [...]
