Around the Empire: New York Yankees News - 3/2/13


Yesterday on Pinstriped Bible:

Around the World:

All Year Cano - ESPN

A weakened Yankees offense might result in Robinson Cano having to take up the slack all over the baseball diamond. He plays in almost all of his team's games, but he just might have to play in every single one of them this season so he can add as much value to the team as possible.

Goodbye, Joba Chamberlain - Fangraphs

Fangraphs weighs in on the Joba Chamberlain drama and takes a look back through his career with the Yankees, as the once promising pitcher is likely to leave the Bronx after the season.

Accountability -

Mark Teixeira wants tougher PED testing to increase the accountability of the players in the game. He believes that steroids have brought a black eye onto the sport and it needs to be fixed.

Talking to Mark Montgomery -

Yankees prospect Mark Montgomery talks about his slider and his rise through the system to become the dominant pitcher that he is.

StubHub Breakup - Business Insider

The Yankees leaving StubHub will certainly change the way fans buy their Yankee tickets, but some also believe that it will have bigger repercussions on the greater market than originally believed.

Slade Heathcott is Coming - Yankee Analysts

Brian Cashman identified Slade Heathcott as a dark horse candidate for the outfield, even though he's only just starting at Double-A this season. The Yankee Analysts believe it is either to build up his trade value or because he might actually be of some use to the team for a month.

Errors Galore - LoHud

Chad Jennings discusses the Yankees' poor fielding with Joe Girardi and what that means for the team. Girardi believes that the young players simply need to play more regularly, while Kevin Youkilis commented about his error, the one error made by a Yankee regular.

Quick Hits:

Sorry Buddy: Kyle Lohse's agent called the Yankees and asked if they were interested in the free agent's services. The Yankees still said no.

Rehabbing: Phil Hughes could pick up a ball on Sunday.

On the Way Back: Cesar Cabral and Michael Pineda threw 30 pitches for the second time, both threw fastballs and change ups.

Crazy Cashman: Brian Cashman has already scaled down a building for a good cause, so now he's taken it one step further: He's jumping out of a plane.
