For so many, Alex Rodriguez is providing something close to their worst-case scenario.
There is zero doubt many fans, media members and even those within Major League Baseball—uniformed or not—wanted A-Rod to fall flat on his face in 2015, to resemble the broken-down, washed-up player he was in 2012 and 2013. Only worse.
Ideally for those people irate at the performance-enhancing-drug scandals he has been named in, Rodriguez would have come off his yearlong suspension handed down by former commissioner Bud Selig and been a disaster for the New York Yankees. That ...

The New York Yankees will begin the season's second half atop the American League East, but the division is still very much up for grabs as less than seven games separates first place from last place.
For the first time in a long time, the Yankees have the kind of high-upside prospects that other teams covet, which, along with the club's deep pockets, puts them in a position to go out and acquire whatever they need.
But the club isn't about to part ways with the likes of outfielder Aaron Judge or ...
The All-Star Game is just around the corner, and some of the best players on the planet will take to Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. Two days before that, though, some of the best prospects in the world will take to that same field on July 12 in the 2015 Futures Game.
The game has produced a plethora of young talent, and recent MVPs of the Futures Game include Jose Reyes (2002), Aaron Hill (2004), Nick Castellanos (2012) and Joey Gallo (2014), per MLB.com.
Those are just the MVPs, though. Consider ...
The Yankees may have gotten two players back from the disabled list in Jacoby Ellsbury and Andrew Miller, but it was a familiar face who propelled them to a 5-4 victory over the Athletics on Wednesday night.
All-Star first baseman Mark Teixeira had two solo home runs and two defensive gems and saved the day for the Bombers, who took an unconventional route to victory.
Both starting pitchers were underwhelming to say the least.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi showed he had little faith in CC Sabathia after pulling him after 5.1 innings, but he would ...

When New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez launched a home run into the seats at Yankee Stadium for his 3,000th career hit in June, it seemed as though he would never get the ball back, but the dynamic changed Friday, as the Yanks negotiated a deal with the fan who caught it.
According to the Yankees' official Twitter account, Zack Hample, who is well-known for his pursuit of souvenir baseballs, has agreed to present A-Rod with the ball Friday in exchange for a $150,000 donation to the Pitch In for Baseball ...
While it initially looked as though the New York Yankees would keep the entire bonus owed to designated hitter Alex Rodriguez for tying Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time home run list, the two sides compromised and resolved the dispute.
MLB Communications provided a statement from the league and the MLB Players Association, which stated Rodriguez and the Yankees "have amicably resolved their dispute regarding Rodriguez's entitlement to bonus monies under the provision of his player contract covering historical statistical accomplishments."
Rodriguez and the Yankees also donated a total of $3.5 million to ...
Times have changed for the New York Yankees.
They can no longer bully with their bank account—or at least they are opting not to—because too many other teams have money these days. They cannot rely on the trade market to find their missing pieces because they are missing too many. And in their new age of not wanting to throw around money and choosing to grow their own players, they should not empty their farm system in order to acquire major league talent.
The Yankees are in the playoff race, though. That ...
New York Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez collected two hits in three at-bats against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday, tying and then moving past Al Kaline for 27th place on the all-time hits list, per MLB Milestones.

His numbers are even more impressive since the end of April, as he batted just .232 during the season's first month, albeit with a .369 on-base ...
