Yankees stick it to fans who want cheap tickets
Posted on December 11, 2012 by Rob Abruzzese

When the Yankees moved from the old stadium to the new one before the 2009 season tickets prices quadrupled and a lot of fans were priced out. Then a lot of people caught on quickly to the secondary market.

By going to StubHub, Yankees fans could get cheap tickets, particularly to midweek games against non-playoff opponents, and enjoy games for as little as $5-$10 for each ticket.

The Yankees hated it. They didn’t hate collecting their cut for each ticket, but at such lower prices their cut was reduced. With lower priced tickets on the market they also struggled to sell whatever they had left over at regular prices because who in their right mind would pay full price for a ticket when there are significantly reduced tickets available on StubHub.

So now that MLB has renewed its agreement with StubHub, the Yankees, along with the Cubs and Angels, have opt-ed out of the deal and instead will work with TicketMaster as their official re-seller under the guise that this is more fan friendly — what a joke.

Now tickets resold through the Yankees official re-seller cannot be sold under face ..read more

Rumor: Yankees listening to offers on Granderson, Hughes, and Nova
Posted on December 6, 2012 by Rob Abruzzese

Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com passed along a rumor this morning that the Yankees were listening to offers for Curtis Granderson, Phil Hughes, and Ivan Nova.

This really isn’t news as the rumor that they were open to trading Granderson and Hughes was making the rounds just two days ago, but it is the first time that we’re hearing Ivan Nova’s name.

Even that shouldn’t be a surprise though. Nova is still young and cheap so teams will want him and the Yankees are set with their pitching staff while they still have four gaping holes in their lineup. They could potentially flip Nova to fill one of those holes and then turn around and sign a aging or injured veteran for rotation depth.

Same deal applies for Hughes and Granderson as I wrote the other day – the Yankees will listen to offers, but both are expected to play big roles on the 2013 team so they will have to be replaced. It seems unlikely that either will be traded, but with four holes in the lineup and no money to spend Brian Cashman will have to get creative so it doesn’t hurt to at least entertain offers.

While we’re at it, I would like to throw David Phelps and Adam Warren‘s names into the pile of guys the Yankees would likely entertain offers for although I should point out that is pure speculation on my part. Warren really has no place on this team though and Phelps is kind of in the same boat as Nova is in and Hector Noesi, who was traded to Seattle, was in a year ago.

Eduardo Nunez is probably another with a good chance to get traded as Cashman has been insistent that he is only a shortstop and will not consider him for a move to third base. Considering the Yankees have Derek Jeter this kind of makes Nunez expendable.

Really though, Cashman is probably willing to listen to offers for anybody on this team, Robinson Cano included. The chances of such deals for veterans are extremely slim though, but I doubt anybody is untouchable right now. Marchand probably only named these three because they are the biggest names likely to get traded.

Rumor: Yankees interested in Cody Ross

The Yankees are interested in free agent outfielder Cody Ross and have even requested his medical information, according to Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports and Rob Bradford of WEEI.

There was actually a rumor going back to Sept. that the Yankees would be interested in Ross this offseason, but until now there was nothing connecting the two parties. It does make sense for the Yankees though because they’ve been interested in him going back to his days with the Marlins and he would be a low cost replacement for Nick Swisher in right field.

The only problem is that while he is low cost, you get what you pay for and Ross has a pedestrian .260/.324/.434 line over the past three years which indicates that he doesn’t do anything well even if he does nothing terribly. He’s middle of the road, but when you are looking to slash payroll like the Yankees have been doing it makes sense. He at least is coming off a career year where he hit .267/.326/.481, but at 31-years-old it’s hard to expect that he’s getting better.

The one thing you do get with Ross is a bonafide lefty masher. In 150 plate appearances against southpaws last season, he hit .295/.373/.636. If they paired him up with Nate Schirholtz they could have a strong platoon.

The problem with the Yankees signing Ross is the problem the Yankees have had with signing everyone — they don’t want to offer multi-year deals. Ross is said to be looking for at least a three-year contract, but the Yankees, because they are trying to get their payroll to $189 million by 2014, are unwilling to offer anybody a multi-year deal. Perhaps they’ll break that trend to get Ross, but it doesn’t seem likely.

Dickey frustrated with pace of Mets' negotiations after extending 'olive branch'
By MIKE PUMA
Posted: 12:14 PM, December 11, 2012
R.A. Dickey wouldn't use the word "insulted," but admitted on Tuesday that he is having a difficult time digesting the Mets' most recent contract offer.

According to sources, the club is offering the knuckleballer $20 million over two additional years. Dickey is already signed for next season at $5 million.

A high-ranking club official brushed off a report indicating the Mets just increased their offer to $20 million on Monday night.

"Nothing has changed since last week," the official said.

Dickey is seeking $26 million over two years, according to sources. In context, Jake Peavy recently received $29 million over two years.

"In the context of the market you want what you think is fair," Dickey said at Citi Field, where he helped distribute gifts to school children. "Even for me, what I feel we are asking for, I feel we are asking for even less than what is fair, because that is how it has been for me and this place.

"There is a surprise sometimes when things don't get done quickly and you think you are already extending the olive branch. But at the same time they have a budget to adhere to, and that is part of it, too."

The Mets continue to explore trading Dickey, but haven't made headway in convincing potential suitors such as the Rangers and Blue Jays to part with top prospects.

Dickey indicated it would be awkward going to spring training without a contract extension.

"That would be disappointing," Dickey said.

The knuckleballer said he will not negotiate with the Mets once the season starts.

"I'm so close to free agency at that point and I don't want any distractions," Dickey said.

Brandon Jacobs suspended by 49ers for final three games

By PAUL SCHWARTZ
Posted: 5:02 PM, December 10, 2012
It sure seemed as if Brandon Jacobs was trying to talk or tweet his way off the 49ers roster and trying to angle his way back to his former team, the Giants, a team in need of depth at running back.

Jacobs did all he could to get the 49ers to cut him and if they did it would have been very interesting to see if the Giants gave him another look – especially since the 49ers figure to be one of the teams to beat in the NFC playoff tournament. The 49ers clearly have had enough of the increasingly frustrated Jacobs but they weren’t going to allow him to go to a contender and so on Monday they suspended the disgruntled power back for the final three games of the season.

The suspension, for conduct detrimental to the team, is without pay. Jacobs makes $55,882 per week on his $950,000 base salary and so getting docked three weeks would cost him $167,647. He is going to file a grievance through the players’ union, according to reports, attempting to get reinstated by the team, recoup his money or – and this is probably his desire – to get the 49ers to release him. He’s maintained a strong relationship with the Giants – he glad-handed his former teammates in the visitors’ locker room at Candlestick Park after the Giants beat the Niners 26-3 back on Oct. 14.

Jacobs, sidelined by a knee injury early in the season, has barely played, appearing in two games and getting just two rushing attempts. He recently took to social media to express his frustration, writing that he is “rotting away” and that this is “by far the worst year he’s ever had.’’ That prompted 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh on Monday to address the situation, or, more precisely, not to address the situation.

Harbaugh, according to the Sacramento Bee, issued a string of “No comments’’ when asked about Jacobs. Asked if Jacobs is still part of the team, Harbaugh said “I'll go with the fifth amendment. I have no comment on that."

Not much later, Harbaugh’s comment rang loud and clear with the decision to suspend Jacobs.

The Giants are thin at the running back position and recently signed two players with NFL experience, Kregg Lumpkin and Ryan Torain, to fill out the depth chart after Andre Brown was put on injured reserve with a broken leg. Ahmad Bradshaw on Monday underwent a battery of tests to determine the extent of the damage to his left knee, which he hurt in the 52-27 victory over the Saints. At the moment, rookie David Wilson – who enjoyed a breakout performance against the Saints – is the only fully healthy halfback who has been with the team all season.

Jacobs has not been shy about expressing his frustration. He recently posted a picture of himself in his old Giants uniform, which did not sit well with 49ers fans. Jacobs wrote in Instagram “I am on this team rotting away so why would I wanna put any pics up of anything that say niners This is by far the worst year I ever had, I'll tell you like I told plenty others."

Jacobs also wrote on Instagram “They won't let me out, I tried."

certainly would be an improvement over Youk, Ross and Ichiro..The yanks have three positions to fill (RF, C, and 3rd base) additionally you have gardner who missed almost the whole year in LF and wasn't much of a hitter to start with..Also who really knows how well jeter comes back from his injury..Don't see these three guys as the answer to the problem..
