“Not very" was how he made it sound on Sunday when he declared the Yankees will be “careful buyers,” and now we have an idea of what that means, as Cashman passed on Jose Quintana, the Whi
The potential game-turning play was quickly overruled by a video review, yet another typical example of a blah ending to the first half for both Headley and the Yankees, who thudded into the All
Bird, 24, out with injuries to both his ankle and knee, hasn't played since May 1. He served as the team's No. 3 hitter on Opening Day following a fabulous spring, but was never able to take off, going 6-for-60 at the plate before being put on the shelf. He recently started a minor-league rehab stint, but was ultimately shut down due to lingering injuries and general ineffectiveness. Bird is slated to be "turned loose" in 3-6 days. What that means at this point, however, remains unclear.
Cashman said that the first base position in 2017 has been "disappointing by all parties, whether they're injured or on the field and not doing well enough," and the long-time Bombers GM didn't

"I heard a lot of rumors, but rumors are rumors, and I don't pay attention to that. I heard about those things, but as a player you don't have control over it, so my focus is on pitching for the White Sox and doing my job."
Inevitably, this rotation is going to need upgrades, and with the trade price for top quality starters such as the White Sox’s Carlos Quintana prohibitive, those upgrades are going to have to
This season, they'll lose Didi Gregorius for a guesstimated six weeks with a right shoulder strain.
Of course there’s less uncertainty with the Mets right now, exciting or otherwise, even with the current questions about David Wright’s future, if Wright even has a future. Because if he can’t play third base, Jose Reyes sure can, and that happens to be a great irony of New York sports right now, just because once we thought the two of them would be playing next to each other in the Mets infield for a long time. Even without Wright the Mets can win the National League East if the starting pitchers stay healthy.
