Alex Rodriguez Has Helped New York Yankees Climb Back »

You can say what you want about Alex Rodriguez: He's a cheater, a liar, a thief in some respects. I've even heard the word "bum" used to describe his overall nature. If not for New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, Rodriguez would unanimously win the award for Most Hated Athlete in New York City. But let's throw aside his PED use, grievance [...]

How the Red Sox Nation Turned A-Rod into a Sympathetic »

We all know the controversy surrounding Alex Rodriguez and saw the situation escalate to a new level Sunday night on ESPN. A-Rod was treated how you’d expect a rival player to be treated on the road, only much worse. The polarizing Yankees third baseman was drilled by Ryan Dempster in the second inning, and Fenway Park roared with thunderous [...]

Sportswriter Blasts A-Rod, Other PED Users in Crazy »

Jeff Pearlman is not a big fan of Alex Rodriguez. After the New York Yankees third baseman was beaned by Boston Red Sox pitcher Ryan Dempster on Sunday, Pearlman posted a profanity-laced tirade supporting what Dempster did. *** Note: the article contains very strong language and is not suitable for children. The controversy stemmed from [...]

Has Ryan Dempster Awoken Sleeping Giants in Alex »

Circle your calendars: Sunday, August 18. That's the date everyone will cite as the turning point of the New York Yankees' season if they get hot and make a playoff run. The operative word in the previous sentence, of course, is still "if." No matter how ideal the setup and scenario looks from the Yankees' point of view—a dramatic, [...]

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

Another week has passed, and the New York Yankees have been playing surprisingly good baseball of late. The offense has gone from stagnant to nearly unstoppable, as uncanny performances from Alfonso Soriano and Robinson Cano have kept the team alive midway through August. Newcomer Mark Reynolds has done his fair share to help the cause, as has the [...]

Robinson Cano: Why He Needs to Stay with the New York »

The Yankees need Robinson Cano, and Robinson Cano needs the Yankees. It makes too much sense. As the Yankees most consistent hitter for a couple of years now, Cano is building a legacy in pinstripes, and he needs to remain in New York. Cano has spent the last few years building a reputation as an elite second baseman, arguably the best in baseball [...]

Alex Rodriguez’s Lawyer Says Yankees Hid Injury »

The rocky relationship between the New York Yankees and Alex Rodriguez appears to have taken a turn for the worse. The star third baseman's newly retained lawyer, Joseph Tacopina, is raising accusations that the club attempted to shorten A-Rod's career by playing him when he was injured, per Steve Eder of the New York Times.  During the [...]

Yankees OF Alfonso Soriano’s Torrid 4-Game Pace »

Alfonso Soriano thinks that the year is 2002 and that he's a 26-year-old hotshot second baseman for the New York Yankees. It's the only rational explanation for the 37-year-old outfielder's incredible performance over the team's past four games, a display that has put his name alongside some of the game's all-time greats in the history [...]

The One Batting Order the New York Yankees Must Use »

The New York Yankees have played 120 games thus far this season. Manager Joe Girardi has thrown out 104 different batting lineups to use in those games. There isn't much Girardi could do about having a more consistent lineup this season, as he has had player after player go on the disabled list. To put in perspective how much turnover the Yankees [...]

How Mark Reynolds Signing Will Impact the Yankees »

Mark Reynolds is officially a New York Yankee. According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the two sides reach an agreement on Thursday, and Reynolds will join the team shortly. The Yanks sit nine games back in the AL East and six games back in the Wild Card race, and Heyman believes that adding Reynolds will help the team. Reynolds will help with the [...]
