    Report: Yankees Unlikely To Upgrade At Second Base, Still Covet Pitching

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Yankees’ late-season platoon at second base may very well be the plan for the start of the 2016 season.
    According to a report in the Daily News, the Bombers don’t appear inclined to significantly upgrade the position, so don’t expect them to make a play for Seattle’s Robinson Cano, should he become available, or spend big money on free agents Ben Zobrist or Howie Kendrick.
    The Yankees like the offensive upside and can live with the perceived defensive shortcomings of both Dustin Ackley and Rob Refsnyder, the report stated. General manager Brian Cashman is instead expected to set his sights on improving the starting rotation and bullpen.
    Fine with me, Cashman made the right move not signing Cano, and he has been proven right.

    Reports circulated earlier this month that the Yankees are willing to trade both closer Andrew Miller and outfielder Brett Gardner in the right deals to address needs.
    I would rather trade Ellsbury but trading Gardner for the right return is fine. I don't get why they would trade Miller. He and Betances were a lethal combination.

    Report: Yankees Willing To Trade Nova, Seek Young, Controllable Arm
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Yankees expect Ivan Nova to be a lot stronger next season, two years removed from Tommy John surgery.
    But that doesn’t mean they won’t trade him in the right deal this winter.
    According to the New York Post, the Bombers are open to dealing the veteran right-hander, along with his cost-effective 2016 salary, for a pitcher that can help them win now and is under control contractually for more years.
    Nova, who will turn 29 in January, is scheduled to make $4.5 million next season and will be a free at this time next year. He could be an attractive option for teams looking to quickly fill a hole.

      I'm not sure how I feel about landing Chapman, live arm, great reliever, but an obvious head case. The bullpen is going to dominate next season and make it a 5 inning game. I'm not as passionate about them since Jeter retired.

          I hope the Yankees have learned their lesson signing players on the wrong side of 30 to long term contracts. They should have let A-Rod and Sabathia walk when they opted out of their contracts. Players use those opt out clause to their advantage, but you'd think sooner or later GM's will realize it's better (in most cases) to let the player walk.

            Yanks 1B Greg Bird to have season-ending shoulder surgery

            NEW YORK (AP) -- Yankees first baseman Greg Bird, who displayed a powerful swing after making his major league debut last August, will miss this season because of a damaged right shoulder that needs surgery.
            The Yankees said Monday that Bird's labrum will be repaired by Dr. David Altchek at The Hospital for Special Surgery on Tuesday. The team said the injury is a reoccurrence of one originally sustained last May.

              Sweeny: Despite Teixeira’s Desire, Multi-Year Deal With Yankees Unlikely When the Yankees announced earlier this month that Greg Bird would be lost for the season because of shoulder surgery, the impact was felt for a number of reasons.
              Despite the fact the Yankees were prepared to send Bird to Triple-A and serve as injury insurance for Mark Teixeira, the fanbase was vocal in wanting their young slugger to be part of the picture for 2016 after he made such a big splash late last summer.
              And with the oft-injured Teixeira entering the final year of his contract, the fans weren’t the only ones able to put two and two together, even if Bird began this year at Scranton/Wilkes Barre. Everyone in the Yankees organization could see the seamless transition taking place, Teixeira out after ’16 and Bird in for ’17.
              And then Teixeira dropped this little doozy on Wednesday:

              “I think I have a lot of good years left in me, especially after last year,” he said. “I’d love to play five more years. I’d love to play till I’m 40.”

                Yankees are looking to cut costs and get out from under the luxury tax. If Tex wants to stay, it'll be tricky to work out a deal. He is hurt often enough that he should be the DH, but Arod has that locked up till after next season. We'll have to see how this season plays out and take it from there.

                  Aroldis Chapman accepts 30 game suspension--no appeal. Effective Opening Day. Can pitch in ST games, return May 9 vs KC. #Yankees

                            My Toughest Out

                            I've played in sold out stadiums. I’ve undergone numerous surgeries. And I’ve even pitched in the World Series. But nothing scared me more than saying these three words: “I need help.”
                            Well, it’s not even the words, really. Words are easy to say, particularly when you don’t believe them. I was fine saying that I needed help well before I actually believed it. When my wife and close friends started telling me they thought I had a problem, I’d always have the right response. I’d say what I thought they wanted to hear so that they could feel better in that moment. But it was never actually coming from my heart. I never actually wanted to stop drinking. And I didn’t think I needed to. I thought I had everything under control.
                            But last October, while sitting all alone in a hotel room, I finally accepted the reality that I had been avoiding for so long.
                            “I need help.”
