  1. Red Sox redefine what it means to be dynasty

    Oct 31, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    These Boston Red Sox are a new kind of dynasty. I suppose there’s a question if they really ARE a dynasty, if that word “Dynasty” even means anything in today’s game, with 30 teams and the game’s structure pushing toward parity. But Boston did win its third World Series in a 10-year-span. Only eight teams…

    After announcing a four-year extension for manager Joe Girardi yesterday, the Yankees are now turning their attention to other members of his staff. According to George A. King III of the New York Post, the Yankees are close to an extension with pitching coach Larry Rothschild. Hired after the 2010 season, Rothschild’s contract is set…

    Mariano Rivera‘s final appearance at Yankee Stadium is in the books. While he didn’t get a save chance, he retired all four batters he faced tonight in a 4-0 loss to the Rays.

    Yankees' Ryan, Cano and Reynolds wait for new pitcher after the Rays scored four runs in MLB game in New York

    It’s official: the Yankees’ season is over after 162 games for just the second time in the wild card era. The Bombers were eliminated from contention when the Indians topped the White Sox 7-2 on Wednesday evening. Just a few minutes later, they wrapped up an 8-3 loss to the Rays, leaving them with an…

  6. Roger Clemens is going to be part of Mariano Rivera’s farewell in Houston

    Sep 25, 2013, 11:08 AM EDT

    Roger Clemens

    The Yankees finish in Houston. And, as has happened in every other city Mariano Rivera has bid farewell, he will get a sendoff there too. And an old friend will be part of that: Rivera’s final goodbye ceremony will come in Houston, where the Yankees will play their last game of the regular season against…

  7. Brian Cashman won’t try to talk Andy Pettitte out of retiring

    Sep 23, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Andy Pettitte

    Andy Pettitte has retired and then unretired before, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger that he won’t try to change the 41-year-old left-hander’s mind because “I know that I won’t be able to convince him like I’ve done in the past.” On the other hand, manager Joe…

  8. Andy Pettitte solid in final start at Yankee Stadium

    Andy Pettitte Getty

    In his final start at Yankee Stadium this afternoon, starter Andy Pettitte went seven innings, holding the Giants to just two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out six. The lefty is scheduled to make one final start against his former team in Houston on Saturday. As good as Pettitte was, though,…

  9. Alex Rodriguez had no idea Andy Pettitte was retiring

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

    a-rod reuters yankees

    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,…

  10. Andy Pettitte’s complicated Hall of Fame case

    Sep 20, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Toronto Blue Jays

    Andy Pettitte was never a dominant starter. That’s pretty much indisputable. In 18 big-league seasons, Pettitte has never won a Cy Young Award, an ERA title or a strikeout crown. The only “black ink” on his Baseball-Reference page comes from the three times he led or shared his league lead in games started. He’s thrown…

I want to have the opportunity to…

    Former Roger Clemens Teammate Andy Pettitte Appears At His Perjury Trial

    What, you thought this ended last year? Ha! Justice can move slowly in the criminal justice system, but it crawls like an injured sloth in the civil justice system. And that’s the system through which Roger Clemens’ former trainer — Brian McNamme — finds himself as he sues Clemens for defamation arising out of the…

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

    Sep 12, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Mike Napoli

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

    Ivan Nova tossed his first career shutout while Robinson Cano did the heavy lifting for the offense as the Yankees defeated the Orioles 2-0 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Nova gave up just three hits (all of them singles), one walk, and two hit-by-pitches while striking out five batters. He induced 15 swinging strikes and…

    Aug 30, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    phil hughes getty

    UPDATE: The Yankees are pushing Hughes back a day and going with Andy Pettitte instead. Which, OK, if you think a day of rest will cure everything that ails Hughes. 4:16 PM: Phil Hughes last pitched on Monday and, after accounting for the Yankees off-day, would be scheduled to pitch Sunday against the Orioles. But…

    Batman

    Before the scores, some important Batman news. You may want to scroll down past this, because I’m gonna take a bit of time here. In case you missed it last night, Ben Affleck has been cast as the Dark Knight in the upcoming Batman/Superman movie. Many people alerted me to this news last night the…

    New York Yankees v Boston Red Sox

    In the lineup at first base in his first game as a Yankee, Mark Reynolds made it count.

The former Cub entered the…

  18. David Ortiz still doesn’t know why he tested positive for PEDs in 2003

    Aug 7, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    David Ortiz

    David Ortiz was one of the hundred or so ballplayers who tested positive for PEDs during the 2003 survey testing which was designed to determine whether or not baseball’s drug problem was significant enough to warrant full-blown testing the following year.  His and everyone else’s name was supposed to remain confidential, but his, Alex Rodriguez and…

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

    Aug 6, 2013, 6:34 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Kansas City Royals

    Royals 13, Twins 0: Hard to envision any more of a domination than this. A four hit shutout for Jeremy Guthrie while the Royals offense puts up a baker’s dozen. Jamey Carroll was literally the most effective pitcher of the game for the Twins. Eric Hosmer drove in five. Dodgers 3, Cardinals 2: Fifteen straight…

  20. Posnanski: Fair or unfair, Major League Baseball making example of Alex Rodriguez

    Aug 5, 2013, 9:18 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Like it or not, MLB is making an example of Alex Rodriguez.

  21. Alex Rodriguez’s “legacy” will not be tainted by his Biogenesis suspension. It was tainted years ago.

    Aug 5, 2013, 8:18 AM EDT

    AlexRodriguezAP

    In light of today’s forthcoming suspension many will, once again, rush in front of television cameras to tell us how Alex Rodriguez‘s legacy is now tarnished. Or “now forever tarnished.” Or “his legacy, once sterling, is now as tarnished as … hmm … what is something that is tarnished …?  Bob, get that intern to…

  22. Matt Garza beats Yankees in Rangers debut

    Jul 24, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Matt Garza

    Matt Garza‘s first start for the Rangers couldn’t have gone much better, as he allowed just an unearned run over 7 1/3 innings to pick up a victory in a 3-1 game against the Yankees on Wednesday. Garza struck out five and walked none to outshine Andy Pettitte in Pettitte’s best start in six weeks.…

  23. Before you climb aboard the “we should void cheaters’ contracts!” express …

    Jul 23, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

    Void

    Though the sea change we’re experiencing in Major League Baseball’s drug testing regime is undeniable, the “we should get tougher!” crowd easily has the loudest voice in the grand shouting match that is our current baseball discourse. And easily the most fashionable get-tough argument in that crowd is the one which goes “players should have…

  24. Ryan Braun is baseball’s biggest fraud

    Jul 22, 2013, 6:17 PM EDT

    Ryan Braun

    Ryan Braun played the victim when he initially tested positive for steroids after the 2011 season. In one regard, he was: that news never should have leaked out before the appeals process played out. In every other regard, he was obviously guilty as charged. Just look at some of Braun’s quotes after he was “vindicated”…

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

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:34 AM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v New York Mets

    Mets 5, Diamondbacks 4: Arizona took two leads in this game: a 3-0 lead they held for most of it and then, after the Mets tied it in the ninth, a 4-3 lead in the 13th. The ultimate rally was capped with Andrew Brown’s two-run single. The best part of that, though: Kirk Gibson ordered…
