    Brian Cashman Knew About Yankee Steroid Use, Didn't Care, Indicted Ex-Mistress Claims

    In a kind of tabloid harmonic convergence, a court document filed yesterday contains new allegations about Yankees general manager Brian Cashman from his former mistress, who is accused of stalking him and trying to extort money from him. Louise Meanwell is said to have told her lawyer Stephen Tura ... More >>

    Yanks Lose. Here's All The Baseball I Want To Talk About This Year

    Speculation on what caused the train wreck that ended last night with the Yankee's 8-1 loss to Detroit is useless, so I'm going to empty out all the notes I took during this year's ALCS and see what sense can be made of it. First off, this is the third time the Yankees have lost a postseason series ... More >>

    Yankee Post-Mortem, Part 2: Too-Much-Moneyball and the Crapshoot Factor

    If you're sick of Moneyball clichés, try the cure: Too Much Moneyball, a video from that's making the rounds. Our favorite scene is when the actor playing the Brad Pitt role — or, rather, in this scenario the Brian Cashman role — is thinking of new ways to spend money: "Ove ... More >>

    Brian Cashman: Out-Of-Touch Dork? Oh, Yes.

    Cashman​Is Brian Cashman truly the out-of-touch dork that his critics believe him to be? Or is the headline on the back page of today's Daily News ("Short Story - Cashman Says Sorry Jose, Jeter's Our Man and We're Set For The Future") some sort of shrewd Yankee bargaining ploy to get Jose Reye ...

    Derek Jeter Book Shouldn't Be Such a Big Deal

    ​I've been trying to avoid this ever since I got a review copy in the mail of The Captain: The Journey of Derek Jeter by's Ian O'Connor. (I hate just about any book about an athlete with "journey' or "quest" or "trials" in the title.) I read or skimmed about half the book and ... More >>

    Derek Jeter Re-Signing With Yankees, Duh

    ​After a bluff from both sides, with New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman telling aging shortstop Derek Jeter to "test the market," number 2 and the Evil Empire are said to be coming together on a three-year contract worth between $45-51 million, with "a complicated fourth-year vesting option, th ...

    Yankees Post Mortem: Dissecting 2010's Corpse

    ​No point right now in looking into the Yankees chances of getting Cliff Lee -- though offhand I'd say the odds are about the same as they were for the Knicks in landing LeBron James. There's also not much point wondering what the Yankees need to do to pull themselves together next season. The ... More >>

    Lady Gaga Banned From New York Yankees Clubhouse, Can't Touch A-Rod's Bat

    ​The pun beginning the New York Post article describing Lady Gaga's ban from the Yankee Stadium clubhouse is something, even by Post standards. "She's persona non Gaga," it begins, describing Gaga and friends' uninvited trip into the Yankees' backstage area, where the pop star took to "swiggin ... More >>

    Crazy Yankee Chick: No Sympathy For the Angels in Yanks' 4-1 win

    ​After all that ado, not a lick of rain. Just goes to show you. God's a Yankee fan, and even though they're "angels," it's bro's before halos. Four wins down. Seven to go. Man, it's cold out. When I started this whole watching-the-Yankees-bat-from-outside ritual, it was a 65 degree situat ... More >>

    Jockbeat: Think Sending Joba to the Bullpen is an Easy Solution? Jim Bouton Begs to Differ

    ​"This is not meant to disparage Brian Bruney, Chad Gaudin, and Sergio Mitre," writes George A. King III in today's New York Post. "But who would have thought Joba Chamberlain would be in a fight with those names to be included on the Yankees ALDS roster?" Who indeed? But why, at this point ... More >>

    Jockbeat: Yankees Looking at a Tough Joba Ahead

    ​If Yankee fans thought the team's post All-Star game run -- 27-10, best in the major leagues -- and overall performance -- .624 W-L, best in the majors -- is too good to be true, they might be right.  As every Yankee fan and front office executive knows, none of this matters unless they at least ...

    Oh No, Another Mets-Yankees Series

    This three-game Citi Field series actually could be interesting rather than depressing.

    Yankees 7-0 Loss to Sox Painful or Hilarious, Depending

It's just no fun beating these New York Yankees anymore. Too easy. The 7-0 fail at Fenway was the Yankees' ... More >>

    At his press conference in Tampa today, Alex Rodriguez said he didn't know that the substance he took back in 2003-2005 -- which he identified as something known in "the streets of DR" as "Bole," presumably the anabolic steroid Primobolan -- was a steroid. He referred to taking the substance as "stu ... More >>
