    San Francisco Giants v New York Yankees

    Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez put his team up 5-1 with a seventh-inning grand slam against Giants reliever George Kontos. The slam was Rodriguez’s 24th of his career, overtaking Yankees great Lou Gehrig’s Major League record. David Robertson and Mariano Rivera teamed up to keep the Giants off the board in the eighth and ninth…

  2. Alex Rodriguez had no idea Andy Pettitte was retiring

    Once Yankees starter Andy Pettitte made the announcement that he is calling it quits after the 2013 season ends, it seemed like everybody on planet Earth knew about it. Columns about the lefty’s Hall of Fame case were quickly scrawled and editorials about his history with performance-enhancing drug use made the rounds. One player, though,…

    Alex Rodriguez on Mariano Rivera, after calling him not just one of the best pitchers ever, but one of the best athletes of all time in any sport: . . . the biggest compliment or the biggest way I can share with all our fans and specially Mariano Rivera fans is that when the moment…

  4. The Yankees need to get a shortstop this winter

    Sep 16, 2013, 9:26 AM EST

    Derek Jeter

    It’s not often that I agree with John Harper of the Daily News, but I think his latest column is pretty much on point. The point: the Yankees can’t take a wait-and-see approach with Derek Jeter‘s health and effectiveness. They need to get an everyday shortstop this winter, making it official that Jeter will be…

  5. Red Sox sweep away Yankees to continue incredible run

    Sep 15, 2013, 11:35 PM EST

    Red Sox' Bogaerts singles in the seventh inning of their American League MLB baseball game against the Yankees at Fenway Park in Boston

    Mariano Rivera was honored Sunday prior to his last ever regular-season appearance at Fenway Park. The Red Sox made sure that was the only time he’d see the mound all weekend. The Red Sox shook off a first-inning Yankees run with three of their own and routed the Bombers 9-2 for a three-game sweep in…

  6. Alex Rodriguez limited to DH duties due to sore hamstring

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Bothered by a sore left hamstring, Alex Rodriguez will make his fourth straight start out of the DH spot this afternoon against the Red Sox. He’s nowhere close to 100 percent at the moment, as he had the chance to score the go-ahead run last night on a double by Robinson Cano, but had to…

  7. Chris Davis joins the 50-homer club

    Sep 13, 2013, 9:26 PM EST

    New York Yankees v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles first baseman Chris Davis became the first Major Leaguer to hit 50 home runs in a single season since Jose Bautista hit 54 in 2010. With the game tied 3-3 in the top of the eighth, Davis drove a Steve Delabar 2-2 change-up to left-center for his milestone home run, putting the Orioles ahead…

  8. A-Rod is the “face of baseball” among people who aren’t really baseball fans

    Sep 12, 2013, 2:23 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    Jayson Stark wrote a column not long ago asking readers to tell him who they think the “Face of Baseball” is. Today he has results of it, and the winner — with a plurality of the votes — is Alex Rodriguez.  But there’s some interesting fine print to be read on that: Only 17 percent…

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

    Sep 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EST

    Boston Red Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    Red Sox 2, Rays 0: Welcome back Clay Buchholz. It’s like you never left. Or at least the early-season version of you never left. Five shutout innings with six strikeouts before making way for a bullpen that was just as stingy. The Red Sox lead in the East is 8.5 games. Padres 8, Phillies 2:…

  10. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 10, 2013, 6:58 AM EST

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dodgers 8, Diamondbacks 1: Three bombs for Juan Uribe and four driven in. What a season for the guy who, in his first two years in Dodger blue, looked lost and, frankly, over. This year he’s hitting .279/.334/.476, is playing excellent defense at third and who has been, by all accounts, a great guy in…

    Sep 9, 2013, 7:41 PM EST

    Orioles manager Buck Showalter is held back by umpires while challenging Yankees manager Girardi following an unknown incident in the first inning of their MLB American League baseball game in Baltimore

    Things got feisty Monday night, Buck Showalter and Joe Girardi both wanted a piece of one another after the first inning of Yankees-Orioles game in Baltimore. It appears that the incident started when Girardi started yelling out of the dugout towards Orioles third-base coach Bobby Dickerson, either to perhaps accuse him of sign-stealing or to…

  12. Alex Rodriguez is batting second for the first time since 2006

    Sep 9, 2013, 3:49 PM EST

    Yankees manager Joe Girardi has moved Alex Rodriguez to the second spot in the lineup tonight, in between leadoff man Brett Gardner and No. 3 hitter Robinson Cano.

  14. MLB may not want A-Rod in the playoffs, but they’ll get over it

    Sep 6, 2013, 8:52 AM EST

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    I don’t know if the Yankees will close the 2.5 game gap between them and the playoffs, but they might. And if they do, Mike Lupica argues, the league will hate it: Now it is September of 2013, what the Yankees hope will be a big September as they try to clinch a wild card…

  15. A-Rod could go to federal court before fighting his suspension in arbitration

    Sep 3, 2013, 10:30 AM EST

    Alex Rodriguez Reuters

    Steven Marcus of Newsday reported over the weekend that Alex Rodriguez‘s appeal of his 211-game suspension will begin this week, at least preliminarily, with a status conference.  He tweets today, however, that A-Rod’s team is considering other options before sitting down for an arbitration with Major League Baseball: A-ROD: His camp looking at legal options…

    Aug 31, 2013, 11:20 AM EST

    Buck Showalter Getty

    You may recall that Orioles manager Buck Showalter made some pointed comments to USA Today last month about how the Yankees would benefit from Alex Rodriguez being suspended. For those unfamiliar, he said the following: “If Bud lets them get away with that, they’re under the luxury tax. If they can reset, they can spend…

  18. Murray Chass made a brief return to the New York Times, and it’s quite welcome indeed

    Aug 26, 2013, 9:45 AM EST

    Murray Chass

    Many have mocked long-time New York Times baseball columnist Murray Chass since he left the Times a few years ago and began writing at his own website. After he kicked off his solo enterprise explaining how he was NOT a blogger and how bloggers are the worst and all of that, he has been called…

  19. David Ortiz doesn’t think Ryan Dempster should have thrown at Alex Rodriguez

    Aug 23, 2013, 8:25 PM EST

    David Ortiz

    On August 18, a Sunday night game nationally broadcast on ESPN, Red Sox starter Ryan Dempster attempted to hit Yankees third baseman and embattled drama magnet Alex Rodriguez with a series of fastballs. On the first pitch, the right-hander threw it behind the slugger’s legs, the next two pitches weren’t inside enough, and the fourth…

  20. A-Rod continues to ruin everything

    Aug 23, 2013, 3:49 PM EST

    Alex Rodriguez

    Remember when Bill Madden of the Daily News said Alex Rodriguez “will never play another game for the Yankees?” That he had what the Daily News headlined as “an evil plan” to “claim he was physically unable to perform” and collect insurance money? Subway Squawkers does, and today catalogs all of the ways in which Madden…

    Alex Rodriguez

    Don’t give me garbage for ripping on another writer here. The writer in question, Gregg Doyel of CBS, invited me to. Indeed, we talked about it on Twitter like civil gentleman. Turns out we both live in Ohio too, and we’re gonna meet for lunch sometime. It’ll be quite the scene. We’ll talk about why…

    If you’re Alex Rodriguez you probably have to be smiling a bit about this report from Mike Fish of ESPN: After months of negotiations and legal wrangling with the whistle-blower in the Biogenesis clinic scandal, Major League Baseball still hasn’t pried loose documents he took from the clinic. But within the past week, Porter Fischer,…

    Not every player in pinstripes is in celebration mode on Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. According to Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger, infielder Jayson Nix was diagnosed with a fractured left hand after getting plunked with an R.A. Dickey pitch in the bottom of the second inning. Nix is going to be reevaluated on Thursday,…

  24. Ryan Dempster’s first post-suspension start is August 30

    Aug 21, 2013, 2:20 PM EST

    Red Sox's Dempster throws against the Blue Jays in the first inning of their American League MLB baseball game in Toronto

    Ryan Dempster will return from his five-game suspension for throwing at Alex Rodriguez and start next Friday, the Red Sox announced. Because the Red Sox have off days tomorrow and Monday the suspension didn’t really force them to juggle the rotation a whole lot. Without the suspension Dempster would have been in line to start…

    Aug 21, 2013, 1:04 AM EST
