      • Espinosa will not make the team. He shouldnt anyway. Didi, Wade, Torreyes, Torres all can play middle infield, are younger, and better.

        • YOU BETTER NOT!

          Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen suggested a radical solution for this offseason’s slower-than-usual pace.

          “Maybe we have to go on strike, to be honest with you,” Jansen, an All-Star the last two season, said at the team’s annual Fan Fest at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, per the Los Angeles Times. “That’s how I feel about it.”

          • Oscar Gamble dead at 68.

            NEW YORK -- Oscar Gamble, a personable lefty-swinging hitter who cracked 200 homers in 17 big league seasons and was popularly known for the large Afro hairstyle he sported in the 1970s, died Wednesday at age 68.

            Gamble's death was confirmed by Andrew Levy, his agent. His wife, Lovell Woods Gamble, told The Associated Press that Gamble died in Birmingham, Ala., nine days after checking into a hospital seeking treatment for a rare tumor of the jaw.

            "It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of former Yankee Oscar Gamble," the Yankees said in a statement. "His prodigious power, unique style and joy in wearing pinstripes made him a favorite of fans and of the Steinbrenner family." Read more.

            • I saw oscar gamble hit a home run. I think it was a grand slam if i remember correctly, at yankee stadium at a game when i was younger. i was so young, it may have been a walk off home run, but i think it was a grand slam. it was so exciting. A treasured memory.

              that must've been it>>>
              September 10, 1976: The Yankees entered the bottom of the 8th trailing 2-1 to the Brewers and starter Jim Slaton. After a Mickey Rivers single to open the frame, Slaton looked to be wriggling out of trouble after a successful Roy White sacrifice bunt was followed by a Thurman Munson groundout back to the mound. However, it quickly fell apart for Slaton. Chris Chambliss doubled to easily plate Rivers from third, then advanced to second on a wild pitch. Carlos May and Graig Nettles then walked to load the bases for Oscar Gamble. Gamble made him pay with a grand slam to put the Yankees up 6-2. Despite a two-run double in the top of the ninth, Catfish Hunter was able to close out the 86th Yankee victory on the season and Hunter's 15th win against 14 losses.

                    Oh, they stormed the field alright. (Not me. No way my father would've let me, lol). Chris Chambliss supposedly never touched home plate because of the mob. Hard to believe that season (the first after the renovations were completed on Yankee Stadium) is now forty-two years ago.

                    • Brian Cashman's greatest hits -- and misses -- in 20 years as Yankees GM.

                      In two decades as GM of the New York Yankees, and with his 50th birthday on deck in July, Brian Cashman has accomplished a lot. He has been a part of five championship teams. He has never allowed his franchise to finish below .500. He has survived in a job that once was just a temporary position.

                      But now he is earning something that has mostly evaded him: respect.

                      Respect as one of the great GMs in the game, and one, along with Theo Epstein and Billy Beane, who might have a pathway to Cooperstown. If Cashman can build a new dynasty, it's hard to imagine he won’t end up there one day. By quickly rebuilding with a farm system featuring Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Luis Severino, among others, and now reloading (Giancarlo Stanton), he has turned the Yankees around quicker than a driver can cut you off on the Major Deegan.

                      • Scout evaluates Yankees’ Miguel Andujar, Gleyber Torres and other top prospects.

                        It's February, yet the free-agent market remains frozen. As it stands, the Yankees are set to go into spring training with Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar at second and third, though it's possible that could change.

                        Here's a scout's take on the duo: Read more.

                            • Yankees announce Aaron Boone’s coaching staff for 2018

                              The Yankees confirmed Aaron Boone’s coaching staff Monday ahead of his first season as manager.

                              Josh Bard, an Ithica, NY native who is a former teammate of Boone’s, will serve as the team’s bench coach after spending five seasons with the Dodgers.

                              Larry Rothschild returns as the Yankees’ pitching coach, his eighth season serving the team in that role.

                              Bullpen pitching coach Mike Harkey also returns, entering his ninth season in the the position he held from 2008-13 and 2016-17. Read more.
