This is the first installment in a series I plan to run in the coming weeks. It’s a variation on ‘Keeping up with the ex-Yanks’ where I’ll give a more detailed profile on an individual player and what has been going on with them and their career.
The last time Yankee fans [...]
We’ve been here a few times before. In at least two different seasons in recent memory, we’ve seen a young relief pitcher get hot in a short period of time and we’ve gotten delusions of grandeur. The recent examples are Brian Bruney, Jose Veras, and Edwar Ramirez; neither one of these pitchers is still on [...]
Via Bryan Hoch, the Yankees have traded right-handed reliever, Edwar Ramirez, to the Texas Rangers for “cash considerations.” Edwar was recently designated for assignment in order to make room on the roster for Chan Ho Park. The slender 28-year old ends his disappointing New York tenure with a 5.22 ERA (ERA+ of [...]
From Chad Jennings, we learn that the Yankees have called up Francisco Cervelli, Ramiro Pena, Mark Melancon, Mike Dunn and Edwar Ramirez. No surprises there. Expect to see Shelley Duncan, Anthony Claggett, Juan Miranda and Brett Gardner get the call later, as well (Austin Jackson remains a possibility, too).
(props to RAB)
As we had advocated earlier today, Bryan Hoch is reporting that Edwar Ramirez was the one to lose his job upon the return of Brian Bruney. We were actually hoping that they would DFA Veras as well, but Joe Girardi obviously believes that the club can get Jose back to where he was [...]
With Brian Bruney returning, the Yankees have a decision to make as to their relief corps. They need to open up a spot on the 25 man roster, with Jose Veras, Edwar Ramirez, and Jonathan Albaladejo the likely choices to be axed. Veras is out of options and would need to pass through waivers, while [...]
Tyler Kepner has a piece in today’s New York Times detailing the cost effective job Brian Cashman has done in building this years relief corps. He begins:
On a team that spends more than $200 million on its roster, the Yankees’ bullpen is a bargain. Only one of Rivera’s setup men will earn more [...]
Here are the notables from last night’s contest against the Red Sox:
1) Austin Jackson hit a grand slam off of Devern Hansack in the 8th inning, extending the Yankees lead to 7-1 with a shot down the left field line. He is at .333/.385/.667, and is tied for the team lead with 3 HR’s [...]
Yesterday’s spring training game against the Blue Jays was filled with a bunch on interesting performances by players that will make the big league roster.
1) Mariano Rivera is not like the rest of us. Another perfect inning from Rivera, this one forcing him to use just five pitches, confirms that assessment. Mo is ready [...]
HELP WANTED-2 Bullpen slots beginning in April, Bronx NY work site. Job entails sitting in the sun, getting late inning outs and listening to Mariano Rivera tell you why he’s great and you suck. Send applications to 161st and River Ave, c/o Joe Girardi
OK, maybe the Yanks aren’t THAT desperate for some bullpen help, [...]
