The Jeter Question

One of the best articles I have read on Jeter in a long time.

Mark Teixeira has played with broken toe

+

Despite the fact that Mark Teixeira has been playing with a broken toe for weeks, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he has no plans to give the first baseman any time off. "He's been playing with it for two weeks," Girardi told espnNewYork.com. "You can't do much for broken toes, that's the thing." Teixeira broke the little toe on his right foot when he hit a foul ball off of the foot on Aug. 31 at Yankee Stadium. The New York Post first reported Teixeira's injury.

New York Yankees on no-trade list of Kansas City Royals' closer Joakim Soria

21

If the Yankees are indeed interested in acquiring Kansas City Royals All-Star closer Joakim Soria, they will face one more hurdle -- a no-trade clause. The Yankees are one of the six teams on Soria's no-trade list, a baseball official with knowledge of the contract tells ESPN New York.

MacArthur Now a UFA after awarded $2.4 million

+

If McArthur is worth $2.4, what is Tim Kennedy worth then? The Thrashers have exercised their walk-away rights in the arbitration case of Clarke MacArthur, making him an unrestricted free agent. MacArthur was awarded $2.4 million but the writing was on the wall when the Thrashers acquired Andrew Ladd from the Blackhawks.

The Upgrade - Brett Gardner

1

Gardner’s conventional statistics are strong enough. His .309 batting average is second best among Yankees starters, and his on-base percentage of .396 is sixth-best in the American League. Gardner also grades highly by sabermetric measures. Baseball-Reference.com gives Gardner a Wins Above Replacement (WAR) value of 3.4 – tied for sixth in the American League with Kevin Youkilis and Carl Crawford, behind only Morneau, Cano, Longoria, Cabrera in Detroit and Pedroia.

The Mariners requested at least three prospects from the Yankees, including Montero

2

The Mariners requested at least three prospects from the Yankees, including Montero, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. But while the Yankees are dealing from strength (they have two more good catching prospects in Austin Romine and Gary Sanchez), they do not have have a major need in their rotation and are unlikely to overpay under the circumstances.

Interesting article on trading Zack Greinke

7
Greinke to the Yankees - It is hard to have a discussion like this without talking about the Yankees, but it is hard to see a great fit, here. Four of the top ten prospects in the Yank system are catchers and two others are pitchers who are struggling mightily. Would they part with number one prospect and catcher/DH Jesus Montero? A package starting with him and pitcher Zach McAllister (#4) would be a start, but I am not sure where it goes from there. Maybe you add Brett Gardner, but you would still need a couple of players beyond that in my opinion.

Montero benched for not running out a ground ball

This is better than the early speculation that he was injured, and it might teach him an important lesson.

Vanek on the ice, game-time decision on whether he plays

Quotes from Ruff: "He's doing well. I didn't really anticipate him skating today. He felt better so that part was encouraging. "That will be a game-time decision on whether he plays. We're just trying to get him a little extra ice to see what he looks like."

One less outfield option for the Yankees, even though it would have been a terrible move, but more importantly one less home for Johnny Damon. His only suitors seem to be the Braves and the Yankees.
