  1. Alex Rodriguez suffers fractured hand on HBP

    Jul 25, 2012, 1:10 AM EST

    Alex Rodriguez 2

    Alex Rodriguez suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left hand when he was hit by a Felix Hernandez slider on Tuesday night and will go on the disabled list, the Yankees announced after the 4-2 loss to the Mariners. Here’s the video. Even though it wasn’t a fastball at 88 mph, it looked like Rodriguez…

  2. Alex Rodriguez’s 2,000th career strikeout goes uncelebrated

    Jul 24, 2012, 11:48 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    I don’t get it; there really should have been a ceremony. Alex Rodriguez became just the fifth player in major league history to strike out 2,000 times when he went down swinging against Felix Hernandez in the sixth inning tonight. Rodriguez clearly looked the video board after the strikeout, obviously expecting at least some sort…

  3. Miguel Cabrera hits two bombs to reach 300 homers

    Jul 22, 2012, 6:08 PM EST

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera took Phil Humber deep twice Sunday to reach 300 career homers and help the Tigers top the White Sox 6-4. Cabrera’s second homer made him the second Venezuelan to reach 300 career homers. The first was Andres Galarraga, who finished his career with 399. Quintin Berry and Brennan Boesch also homered for Detroit…

  4. Reggie Jackson is back with the Yankees tonight in Oakland

    Jul 19, 2012, 8:31 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez, Reggie Jackson

    You’ll be thrilled to know that Reggie Jackson has rejoined the Yankees for tonight’s series opener against the Athletics. Jackson, who is a “special advisor” with the Yankees, recently took a leave of absence from the team after he said Kirby Puckett, Gary Carter, Bert Blyleven, Jim Rice, Don Sutton, and Phil Niekro shouldn’t be…

  5. Don’t worry Yankees fans: A-Rod is still ‘above average”

    Jul 15, 2012, 6:21 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    Alex Rodriguez popped out with the bases loaded to end Sunday’s 10-8 loss to the Angels. But, hey, his general manager still thinks he’s good. Kind of. “I don’t look at A-Rod and his contract. I look at him as a player who’s above average at his position,” Brian Cashman told Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.…

  6. Jered Weaver’s fake to third, throw to first results in two outs for Angels

    Jul 15, 2012, 2:32 PM EST

    angels yankees

    Jered Weaver hasn’t had a whole lot of luck shutting down the Yankees’ bats today, but he made them look like Little Leaguers on the basepaths. With runners on the corners and one out in the third inning today, Weaver did the fake-to-third, throw-to-first move and caught Robinson Cano napping. With Cano caught in a…

  7. Reggie Jackson apologizes for “inappropriate and unfair” comments about Alex Rodriguez, Hall of Famers

    Jul 12, 2012, 4:33 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez, Reggie Jackson

    Reggie Jackson made headlines recently for saying in a Sports Illustrated interview that Alex Rodriguez‘s numbers should be questioned because of performance-enhancing drugs and Kirby Puckett, Gary Carter, Jim Rice, Bert Blyleven, Don Sutton, and Phil Niekro shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame. That predictably caused a mini-uproar and he reportedly apologized personally to…

  8. Brian Cashman says Reggie Jackson wasn’t banned from Yankees, but was asked to stay away

    Jul 11, 2012, 12:11 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez, Reggie Jackson

    Brian Cashman said yesterday that contrary to reports Reggie Jackson wasn’t “banned” from being involved with the Yankees following his comments about Alex Rodriguez and performance-enhancing drugs. However, the general manager did admit that the team asked Jackson to stay away during their first half-ending road trip to Boston to avoid distractions. So, more like…

  9. Yankees tell Reggie Jackson to go away

    Jul 9, 2012, 3:30 PM EST

    Reggie Jackson

    Reggie Jackson made headlines last week for saying that Kirby Puckett, Gary Carter, Jim Rice, Bert Blyleven, Don Sutton, and Phil Niekro shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame, and also for saying that Alex Rodriguez‘s numbers should be questioned due to performance enhancing drugs. Jackson later apologized and Rodriguez seemingly brushed it off by…

  10. Alex Rodriguez is having the worst season of his career, but Joe Girardi says “he’s due”

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez, Joe Girardi

    Alex Rodriguez is having the worst season of his career, finishing the first half hitting .269 with 13 homers, 38 RBIs, and a .436 slugging percentage in 82 games. Both his batting average and slugging percentage would be career-lows and he’s on pace to finish with an OPS below .800 for the first time in…

  11. Derek Jeter drops a pop up!

    Jul 8, 2012, 9:56 PM EST

    Derek Jeter

    It only happens once a decade or so, but Derek Jeter dropped a pop up in the first inning Sunday night, giving the Red Sox an early run. It couldn’t have been a more routine play for Jeter, and he’s always been one of the game’s best shortstops when it comes to handling flyballs. Typically,…

  12. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 5, 2012, 5:48 AM EST

    Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Lee points towards a pop out by New York Mets Nickeas during the third inning of their MLB National League baseball game in New York

    Phillies 9, Mets 2: Cliff Lee stood to lose yet another one, as he and the Phillies were down 2-0 entering the seventh, but three runs in each of the seventh, eighth and ninth innings saved his bacon. First win of the year for Lee. Marlins 7, Brewers 6: On Tuesday Milwaukee beat Miami in…

  13. Andy Pettitte suffers fractured ankle, will miss six weeks

    Jun 27, 2012, 3:40 PM EST

    Andy Pettitte

    Having already placed CC Sabathia on the DL Wednesday, the Yankees suffered an even bigger blow this afternoon: Andy Pettitte will miss at least six weeks due to a fractured left ankle suffered when he was hit by a comebacker in the 5-4 win over the Indians. Pettitte was removed from Wednesday’s game in the…

  14. The final AL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 25, 2012, 2:49 PM EST

    All Star Game Logo

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler. Downballot, we see A-Rod passing Evan Longoria for third place at third base, a flip-flop…

  15. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Jun 23, 2012, 8:58 AM EST

    Frank Francisco Getty

    Fresh off referring to the Yankees as chickens in the New York Post, Frank Francisco was called on to close out Friday’s game. It wasn’t pretty and he didn’t strike out the side like he promised, but he was able to escape a jam to notch his 18th save as the Mets won the first…

  16. Mets closer Frank Francisco on the Yankees: “I can’t wait to face those chickens”

    Jun 22, 2012, 10:10 AM EST

    New York Mets Photo Day

    I’m not sure what could possibly compel a struggling second-rate closer with a 5.14 ERA to talk trash publicly against the Yankees, but Mets right-hander Frank Francisco took the media bait and did just that. With this weekend’s Subway Series starting at Citi Field tonight, Francisco was asked for his thoughts about facing the Yankees…

  17. Yankees present Chipper Jones with third base

    Jun 20, 2012, 1:38 PM EST

    Chipper Jones, Derek Jeter

    Because Alex Rodriguez isn’t doing much with it anyway. In a pregame ceremony honoring the retiring future Hall of Famer, Derek Jeter and Andruw Jones presented Chipper Jones with the third base bag used at Yankee Stadium in last night’s game. Of course, Chipper and Andruw were teammates in Atlanta for 12 years. Not everyone…

  18. Carlos Beltran becomes first switch-hitter to join 300-300 club

    Jun 16, 2012, 11:01 AM EST

    Carlos Beltran Getty

    We already know that Carlos Beltran is awesome, but now he’s historically awesome. Beltran is the first switch-hitter in major league history to amass 300 home runs and 300 stolen bases. He accomplished the feat by stealing second base in the second inning last night. Appropriately enough, it was against the Royals, the team which…

  19. Oh, is it time for Bryce Harper-to-the-Yankees speculation already?

    Jun 15, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Nationals Harper looks at his home run against the Blue Jays during the third inning of their MLB Interleague baseball game in Toronto

    You knew this was coming eventually. And really, I ain’t even mad. Because this is so obviously calculated to troll people as opposed to being that classic “the Yankees must obtain every good player ever” kind of chatter that annoys us so that this works better as parody than it does as any sort of…

  20. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 13, 2012, 6:02 AM EST

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  21. Alex Rodriguez hits record-tying 23rd grand slam

    Jun 13, 2012, 12:23 AM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    Alex Rodriguez hit his 23rd career grand slam in the Yankees’ comeback win over the Braves on Tuesday, tying Lou Gehrig for the most in history. A-Rod’s homer off Jonny Venters in the eighth gave the Bombers their first four runs, tying the game. The Yankees went on to win 6-4. The grand slam crown…

  22. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 8, 2012, 5:50 AM EST

    Norichika Aoki

    Brewers 4, Cubs 3: Norichika Aoki hit two homers including the walkoff. Overall, he’s kicking some major butt. Mets 3, Nationals 1: As I said yesterday: Dickey beats Wang. I’m still giggling, by the way. Pirates 5, Reds 4: Aroldis Chapman finally allowed a run. You see? You see? He’s not a machine, he’s a man, he’s a man!  Someone alert…

  23. Don’t let 20-year-old Mike Trout be overshadowed by 19-year-old Bryce Harper

    May 31, 2012, 12:46 PM EST

    Los Angeles Angels' Mike Trout scores on a sacrifice fly with New York Yankees catcher Russell Martin getting out of the way during the first inning of their MLB baseball game in Anaheim

    Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is getting all sorts of attention for doing things rarely done by 19-year-old hitters, and rightfully so, but Angels outfielder Mike Trout probably deserves a little more attention for doing things rarely done by 20-year-old hitters. Trout doubled and drove in two runs against the Yankees last night and is now…

  24. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 24, 2012, 8:28 AM EST

    Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees

    Yankees 8, Royals 3: Alex Rodriguez would like the New York sporting press to write more career obituaries for him. It seems to suit him nicely (2 for 4, 2 HR, 3 RBI). Reds 2, Braves 1: Todd Frazier hit a walkoff homer. It came off  Cristhian Martinez because, as everyone knows, Fredi Gonzalez would be drummed…

  25. Bryce Harper moves to the second spot in Nationals lineup

    May 8, 2012, 5:12 PM EST

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper joined Ken Griffey Jr., Andruw Jones, and B.J. Upton as the only 19-year-olds to bat third in a big-league game since 1980, but now he’s on the move in the Nationals’ lineup again. Harper, who debuted as a No. 7 hitter before shifting to the No. 3 slot, is batting No. 2 tonight…
