Nunez Working His Way Back in Trenton

Friday, July 5th, 2013

TRENTON, N.J.  – Yankees shortstop Eduardo Nunez emerged from the Trenton Thunder clubhouse Thursday afternoon just as a reporter asked a question. “Is there anybody in this (Yankees) organization who isn’t injured?’’ was the queery. “Sometimes I wonder,’’ said the 26-year-old native of Santo Domingo, flashing a sheepish grin in the process. Nunez, part of […]

Will Eduardo Nunez Haunt the Yankees?

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

With the Mariners in town to play the Yankees this weekend there are a ton of common stories to talk about. You could remember the rivalry of the late-90s or perhaps the 2001 Seattle team that won 116 games but was extinguished by the Yanks in the ALCS. The most obvious storyline seems to be […]

Who Is Hiroyuki Nakajima?

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Surprisingly, the Yankees won the bidding right to Seibu Lions shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima. Their bid was for a very reasonable $2 million dollars. The Yankees view Nakajima as a utility man to backup Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, and Robinson Cano throughout the season. He’s basically replacing Eduardo Nunez, who could be part of a package to possibly bring back some pitching. Jon […]

Trading for Jair Jurrjens

Monday, November 21st, 2011

John Harper of the Daily News reported this weekend the Braves interest in Yankees utility man Eduardo Nunez. This created speculation the Yanks could work out a deal for Jair Jurrjens, who is available this offseason. Jurrjens is arbitration eligible and made $3.25 million a year ago. His salary will certainly enter the $5 million a year range after […]

Hot Stove Sunday on WGBB @10pm

Sunday, November 20th, 2011

Tonight, I am live from the studio of 1240 AM WGBB. It’s been a slow hot stove, but I will recap where both team’s stand after the GM meetings. Hear my thoughts on the Yanks “wait and see” approach with the free agent starting pitching market, if Eduardo Nunez can be used as the centerpiece […]

NL Exec: “Zduriencik Clueless or Saying Things For Effect”

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Earlier in the week Seattle GM Jack Zduriencik told ESPN New York that he doesn’t have any intention of trading Felix Hernandez despite the Mariners owning one of the worst records in baseball. He went on to say that ”You can say nine guys. You could say 12 guys. What does it matter? The deal is we have […]

Trading Pelfrey, Trusting Hughes, Aramis Ramirez, Pittsburgh Yanks

Monday, July 18th, 2011

I talked about the market for Carlos Beltran earlier this morning, but there is another Mets player that I think might be desirable to contenders: Mike Pelfrey. After losing to the Phillies on Sunday afternoon Mike Pelfrey is 5-9 with a 4.67 ERA. After making so much progress with his splitter last season it appeared […]

Dave Sims on Yanks Acquiring King Felix: “Never Going to Happen”

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

I had the pleasure of Seattle Mariners television broadcaster Dave Sims joining me for a few minutes on Sunday’s holiday podcast. We talked about his time here in New York on WFAN, but we also discussed the state of the Mariners. When I brought up how Yankees fans would love to see Felix Hernandez in […]

Soria and Sanchez on Yanks Radar?

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

A member of the Kansas City media reached out to me yesterday, asking if we had heard anything about the Yankees making another run at Royals closer Joakim Soria. Last summer, we reported Yankees interest in Soria, but the demands of Kansas City GM Dayton Moore were excessive. Bill Madden later reported the Yankees made overtures […]

Are Yankees Fans Tired of the Nineties?

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

It’s always hard to take the temperature of an entire fan base. The internet is a great tool to accomplish this; however it’s hardly scientific. Talk radio? The cream of the crop usually doesn’t wait on hold during working hours. These tools are all I have to go by on a daily basis, so for […]
