Ichiro’s Costly Error Helps Lead to Painful »

It's very rare that New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki makes an error. But in Monday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Ichiro made an error that was particularly hurtful to his team's chances. The game was in the bottom of the fifth, tied 2-2 after Alex Rodriguez hit a solo home run in the top half of the inning to tie things up. [...]

Will A-Rod Get to 700 Home Runs and Should We Even »

With a solo home run in the fifth inning of Monday's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, Alex Rodriguez moved up to 650 career home runs and 10 within Willie Mays for fourth all time. That means the New York Yankees third baseman is only 50 home runs away from 700, a place where only three have gone. Some might be wondering if he will ever get [...]

Derek Jeter returned the New York Yankees lineup on Monday, much to the delight of fans.

Stock Up, Stock Down for New York Yankees’ Top »

The New York Yankees posted a great Week 21, going 5-2 and gaining serious ground in the American Least and AL Wild Card standings. Had it not been for two tough losses to the Tampa Bay Rays, the Yankees could have been within 1.5 games of the Wild Card. Their strong play this past week can be attributed to several different factors. For one, [...]

CC Sabathia: Will His “Out” Years Drag »

Saturday's duel between the Tampa Bay Rays' ace, David Price, and the Yankees' ace, CC Sabathia was basically a microcosm of the season-long fact that the Ray's ace is decidedly better than the Yankees' ace. And that 's in spite of the fact that the low-budget Rays pay Price less than half of what the Yankees pay Sabathia. Which is one reason why [...]

New York Yankees’ Catcher Austin Romine Keeps It »

New York Yankees catcher Austin Romine has had a solid August at the plate, and a strong summer behind it. Though he is batting just .223 in 48 games (through Saturday), he is beginning to show defensive prowess and offensive promise. His 2011 debut was a brief and uneventful September call-up and he spent a depressing 2012 in Triple-A ball after [...]

Could $20 Million Be Enough for the New York Yankees »

Even after a so-so outing against the Tampa Bay Rays earlier this week, Hiroki Kuroda has been the best starter for the New York Yankees this season. Over 26 starts, he boasts an 11-9 record and 2.71 ERA through 166.1 innings. Last season, his first with the Yankees, was also very good. He went 16-11 with a 3.32 ERA over 219.2 [...]

New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez Was Loved? »

A-Rod, A-Fraud or Alex Rodriguez. There was a time when Alex Rodriguez was widely considered the best baseball player alive. Those days are long gone. We are now reduced to Oompa Loopma jokes and pictures of him making out with himself. Rodriguez has 649 career home runs and 1,956 RBI, both good for fifth all-time. We should be celebrate not [...]

Roadblocks to the Yankees’ Miracle Playoff-Race »

The New York Yankees, winners of five games in a row and eight of 10, are on a roll, climbing to within 3.5 games of a postseason spot as they head to Tampa Bay—one of the American League's wild-card leaders—for a three-game series this weekend. The Yankees might just have enough to make a real run through September and into [...]
