New York Yankees Activate Jorge Posada From DL

Good news for fantasy owners like me who were suffering at the catcher position while they had Jorge Posada on the DL. The New York Yankees activated the 38-year-old catcher prior to last night’s tilt against the Baltimore Orioles.

Posada DH’d last night, which might be a good thing for his fantasy owners. Francisco Cervelli is clearly a better defensive catcher than Posada at this point of his career. Posada at DH the majority of the time will preserve his bat and health for the rest of the season.

Why Jorge Posada's Career Will Never Be The Same Again

Yesterday, I wrote about how the New York Yankees should send IF/OF Kevin Russo down to the minors when catcher Jorge Posada was ready to be activated off the disabled list.

The Derek Jeter-Lou Gehrig Comparison

Since the Jeet man is chasing Gehrig's sacred numbers I thought I would compare the two...something Jeter himself would never admit doing.

They both had the basic same legnth careers, G-man 16 years and Jeet-man 15. Gehrig had three seasons of 15 or fewer games, two in the beginning and one at the end. Jeter had one season where he played 15 games...his first. Jeter will play for at least two more years.

Lou Gehrig: 2,164 games/8,001 AB/ 1888 runs/2,721 hits/ 534 doubles/163 triples/493 HR/1,995 RBI/1,508 walks/790 strikeouts/.340 AVG./.447 OBP

The New York Yankees Could Get Kanekoa Texeira Back From the Seattle Mariners

According to Larry Stone of the Seattle Times , the Mariners have designated former Yankees reliever Kanekoa Texeira for assignment. They now have 10 days to trade Texeira or let somebody claim him off of waivers. 

Here is what Stone had to say of the Texeira move:

Forget the Yankees: Time To Retire a Tired Fenway Chant

The chant was clear even on television, so it must have been deafening if you were one of the lucky 37,000 or so in the stands. During the middle innings of Saturday’s showdown with the Kansas City Royals at Fenway Park, the now familiar wave of “Yankees Suck! Yankees Suck!” cascaded down from the bleachers.

And it was downright depressing.

What Do the New York Yankees Do With Joba Chamberlain?

Throughout Joba Chamberlain’s late season struggles last year many fans and pundits insisted that it was because the Yankees were messing with him too much and that he was not pitching ‘where he belonged’ in the bullpen.

Well, the Yankees haven’t been messing with him and he’s been in the bullpen, even further, he’s one of the few who have had a consistent role as the eighth inning guy.

Video of David Huff Hit by a Line-Drive from Alex Rodriguez

Cleveland Indians lefty David Huff was hit in the head by a line drive off the bat of Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and the ball ricocheted all the way to the right field corner.

David Robertson Leaves Game with Back Injury

Yankees reliever David Robertson left today’s game in the middle of the 7th inning with what they’re calling a mild lower back strain.

This injury is no doubt the result from a line drive that Twins catcher Joe Mauer hit Robertson in the back with last week. Initially Robertson said the Mauer’s line drive didn’t hurt him and that his belt had absorbed most of the impact, but in the middle of today’s game it must have tightened up on him.

Derek Jeter:Thank You for the Past 15 Years

Derek Sanderson Jeter made his major league debut 15 years ago today, May 29, 1995.

For any fan of the Yankees, and the game of baseball, it has been a great 15 years. We have all gone along for the ride with this great shortstop.

Jeter made his major league debut with the Yankees 15 years ago, when injuries to Tony Fernandez, and Pat Kelly, required the team to call up their young future star.
