Yankees potential trade target: Trevor Bauer

Yankees potential trade target: Trevor Bauer

Peter G. Aiken The talented right-hander would fit right in with the Yankees in some ways, but would stick out like a sore thumb in others. Last week, reports surfaced that the Yankees were “high” on Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer. From a distance, their interest makes the utmost sense. With Luis Severino’s status still in question, New York could certainly use a frontline starting pitcher. If Cleveland makes Bauer available, there may be no stronger rotation option on the trade market than the 28-year-old right-hander. In some ways, a potential marriage between the Yankees and...

An ode to Mariano Rivera upon his induction

An ode to Mariano Rivera upon his induction

NorthJersey.com-USA TODAY NETWORK Let’s simply remember Rivera as he enters the Hall of Fame this weekend. There are 652 reasons for Yankees fans to be thankful for Mariano Rivera, but in the interest of time, we’ll keep it much shorter and straight to the point. Mariano “Mo” Rivera was born on November 29, 1969 in a small village in Panama called Puerto Caimito. In 1989, at the age of 20, Mo was signed by Yankees scout Chico Heron, who was referred to Mariano by teammates of his on the Panamanian travel team he played for. In today’s baseball, with an abundance of talent...
