Somehow Stephen Drew is still a Yankee. To recognize his improbable roster spot, here’s a conversation on Facebook between the Yankees.
The panic button was pushed with the Yankees getting beat up by the Blue Jays and Indians, but a road trip to Toronto momentarily paused the state of worry.
The trade deadline has come and gone and it was uneventful for the Yankees unless you like adding former highly-touted prospects that turned into busts and now can’t hit and have no position.
The Yankees start their 10-game road trip against an old friend in Phil Hughes and a Twins team that is overachieving and in the playoff picture.
The Yankees’ putting Adam Warren in the bullpen and skipping a Michael Pineda start are the latest moves on a long list of ridiculous decisions.
The Yankees have never lost when I listen to John Stelring and Suzyn Waldman and write about it, so on Sunday, I turned to the duo with the Yankees looking for a sweep.
The Yankees need to start winning and they need to start now. There’s no better place for that than a four-game series in Minnesota against the Twins.

This isn’t goodbye to Derek Jeter. It’s the preparation for the goodbye.
