The changing face of the New York Yankees

After years of question marks, a new face of the Yankees emerged. In the life of a Major League Baseball team, there comes a time when a club must undertake the difficult task of replacing the face of the franchise. Over the last five years, the New York Yankees found themselves with the unenviable task of replacing an icon. For roughly two decades, Derek Jeter stood out as not just the face of the Yankees, but of baseball itself. With every passing year, the team knew it drew closer to having to find Jeter’s replacement. What they likely didn’t know, however, was that the process...

Late career Alex Rodriguez didn’t do it for many folks. (Heck, many didn’t like peak A-Rod.) Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury, Mark […] The post The New Face of the Franchise [2017 Season Preview] appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

TAMPA — Derek Jeter has been retired for three springs now, but his wise words live on, and something the Captain told Brett Gardner resonates with this youth-infused Yankees club. “One of the things Derek always told me and you’d always see him do with the young guys,” Gardner told The Post on Saturday at...
The Yankees need to practice what they preach

The Yankees need to practice what they preach

When it comes to talking to the media the executives are the problem, not the players. When Derek Jeter retired from baseball, one of the biggest things said about him was how he managed to play in New York for 20 years and avoid any major controversies. One of the ways he was able to avoid scandal was by giving the most vanilla answers when speaking to the media. Derek Jeter was a baseball player and nothing else and everyone loved him. The Yankees, understandably, want all of their players to follow this model. It’s not that they want to suppress their players’ personalities (maybe...
