    MLB Trade Rumors ^ | December 9, 2017 at 11:42am CDT | Kyle Downing
    It would appear that the Giancarlo Stanton saga has come to a close. The Yankees are set to acquire the 2017 NL MVP from the Marlins in exchange for infielder Starlin Castro and two prospects in the lower levels of New York’s minor league system. The Marlins will also send the Yankees $30MM in cash if Stanton does not opt out of his contract after the 2020 season. The deal is still pending a physical. Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports was the first to report that a deal was in place, while Joel Sherman of the New York Post mentioned...

  • Facing Boss-sized expectations, Boone must bring Bombers a World Series title

    NEW YORK -- For Aaron Boone, it's like The Boss is back in town. The expectations for what he needs to accomplish as the next manager of the New York Yankees are straight from the late George Steinbrenner’s merciless ethos: Either win a World Series, or fail. The job is a blessing and a curse. There is so much young talent on the roster and so much more on the way, which makes the Yankees a win-now team. But if Boone doesn’t win over the next couple of years, fingers will be pointed at him and the man who hired...
  • Former New York Yankees hero Aaron Boone is tapped up by Bronx Bombers to be their next manager

    The New York Yankees have picked ESPN broadcaster and former player Aaron Boone to succeed Joe Girardi as manager, according to reports. Now 44, Boone has never been a manager or even a coach at any level since retiring as a player after the 2009 season. His 11th-inning home run off Boston's Tim Wakefield won Game 7 of the AL Championship Series for the Yankees against Boston.

    Aaron Boone secured his place in Yankees lore with one of the most indelible home runs in franchise history. Now, at 44, he can build on that legacy as a rookie manager for the team. The Yankees chose Boone as their manager on Friday over five other candidates, according to a person with direct knowledge of the decision. The person was not authorized to discuss the move because the Yankees have not announced it. General Manager Brian Cashman, who traded for Boone down the stretch in 2003, recommended him as the manager to Hal Steinbrenner, the Yankees’ managing general partner....

    Randy Levine has never been shy about speaking his mind--especially when money is on the table. The Yankees president has become known for boasting about his team--or against certainly players (Dellin Betances) when he feels it's necessary. The latest to feel the wrath of Levine: President Donald Trump.

    Joe Girardi will not be back next season as manager of the New York Yankees, sources told David Kaplan of ESPN 1000 in Chicago on Thursday. Girardi just concluded a four-year, $16 million contract, and he and the team agreed to part ways, sources said. They will make an announcement later Thursday. Girardi, 53, and the Yankees came within one game of going to the World Series this year, losing to the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series. In 10 years at the helm, Girardi won one World Series and made the playoffs six times....

    The Bombers KO’d Keuchel and the Astros 5-0 in Game 5 on Wednesday at the Stadium, and will take a 3-2 series lead back to Houston, with a chance to get back to the World Series for the first time since they last won it all in 2009. Masahiro Tanaka struck out eight, walked one and allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings, as the Yankees improved to a perfect 6-0 in the Bronx during the playoffs.

    Down 4-0 in the seventh inning, the Yankees pulled off yet another stunner, rallying to beat the Astros 6-4 in Game 4 of the ALCS in front of 48,804 at the Stadium. Gary Sanchez delivered a go-ahead, two-run double with one out in the eighth off flamethrower Ken Giles — snapping an 0-for-13 start in the series. Aroldis Chapman recorded the save in the ninth after allowing a walk-off hit to Carlos Correa in Game 2. “Without a doubt, the (Yankee) gods were watching (over us),” Todd Frazier said. “I don’t know what else to say. The series is even...

    Perhaps the greatest World Series game of all time. No DH, no batting gloves, no helmets. Just pure baseball. Today marks the anniversary. David vs Goliath is a valid comparison. Worth watching as this is the only recorded film. Bing Crosby, who was part owner of the Bucs, had this recorded privately and it was found after his death in storage.

    The Yankees pulled off a shocker on Wednesday night, rallying back from an 0-2 series deficit to stun the favored Indians 5-2 in Game 5 at Progressive Field and advance to the ALCS. The Bombers became just the 10th team in MLB history to rally back from an 0-2 deficit en route to winning a best-of-five series.

    Didi Gregorius homered twice, CC Sabathia rolled back the clock with nine strikeouts before turning it over to the bullpen in the fifth inning and the Yankees completed their historic comeback from a daunting deficit, advancing past the Indians with a 5-2 victory on Wednesday night in Game 5 of the American League Division Series presented by Doosan. New York will now face the Houston Astros in the AL Championship Series presented by Camping World. Game 1 is scheduled for Friday at Minute Maid Park.

    The 2017 season was going to be an interesting one for the New York Yankees no matter how good the team was going to be on paper. With a new roster setup that aimed to be younger, the mindset for many for the Bronx Bombers was a repeat of last season. Perhaps compete for one of the two Wild Card spots but fall short once again. While that would normally mean riots in the streets of New York, Yankees fans seemed to accept that idea. With more organizational depth than many fans could remember, a reboot/rebuild atmosphere around the club...

    Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge hit his 40th home run of the year Sunday in the fourth inning of the Rangers' Nick Martinez, joining Mark McGwire (1987) as the second player in the history of Major League Baseball to record 40-plus homers as a rookie. In the Yanks' 16-7 victory at Globe Life Park, Judge also became just the fourth Yankee to hit 40 homers in a season in his age-25 season or younger, joining Halll of Famers Mickey Mantle (1956), Joe DiMaggio (1937), Lou Gehrig (1927) and Babe Ruth (1920).

    Gene “Stick” Michael, a beloved Yankees figure who helped build the late-90s dynasty, has died from a heart attack. He was 79. Michael was the Yankees manager in 1981-82 and the GM from 1991-95, when he drafted Derek Jeter and guided the organization during George Steinbrenner’s suspension. Michael was the true architect of the teams that would win four World Series in five years from 1996-2000. Beyond Jeter, he drafted or signed the entire Core Four: Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte and Jorge Posada. After his run as GM, Michael stuck with the organization, serving as the vice-president of major league...

    Commissioner Rob Manfred confirmed Tuesday that the Boston Red Sox used electronic communication from the dugout to steal opponents' signs and relay them to Boston players during games. Baseball's investigation of the Red Sox is ongoing, Manfred said from Fenway Park ahead of Boston's game against Toronto, but he expects it will be completed before the end of the regular season. News of the investigation was first reported by the New York Times. The Red Sox were accused of stealing signs electronically against the Yankees at Fenway Park.
