    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…

    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…

  3. It’s great to have the Pirates back

    At some point in the eighth inning, I remember going out to concourse of old Fulton County Stadium in Atlanta and watching Atlanta Braves fans slowly shuffle toward the exits and their cars and another long baseball off-season. It is all well and good to say that baseball fans should stay to the end but…

  4. CC Sabathia’s disappointing season ends with an injury

    Sep 23, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia, Jonny Gomes

    CC Sabathia won’t be making his final start of the season, as the Yankees announced that the left-hander suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain in his most recent start and will need eight weeks or so to recover. So in one sense it’s actually good timing, because if Sabathia had injured his hamstring earlier in…

  5. CC Sabathia struggles in loss to Red Sox

    Coming off a loss last night, the Yankees needed the vintage CC Sabathia or a reasonable facsimile to show up this afternoon against the Red Sox. It didn’t happen. Sabathia was touched up for five runs on nine hits and four walks over six innings as part of a 5-1 loss. After beginning the afternoon…

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

    Sep 5, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 20, Tigers 4: Well, that was something. Eight homers in all for the Red Sox. Two from David Ortiz, who picked up his 2,000th career hit as well. Injury added to insult: Jose Iglesias left the game with shin splints. Cardinals 5, Reds 4: A sixteen inning affair in which Matt Adams homered…

  7. Ivan Nova holds Orioles to three hits in first career shutout

    Ivan Nova Getty

    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…

  8. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    CC Sabathia hardly delivered an ace-like performance last night, but fortunately for him, his offense was there to pick him up. On the strength of a five-run fifth inning, the Yankees defeated the Orioles 8-5 at Yankee Stadium and remain very much alive in the AL Wild Card race. Miguel Gonzalez failed to get an…

  9. Tom Seaver thinks pitchers today should be like him and his Hall of Fame friends

    Aug 30, 2013, 8:23 AM EDT

    Tom Seaver

    This is in keeping with my observation from the other day that, when talking about the pitchers of yesteryear and their heavy work loads, people almost always talk about the exceptional and other-worldly talented, not the ones who never made it because their arms blew out. Here’s Tom Seaver talking to Bill Madden of the…

  10. Joe Girardi on Ryan Dempster: ‘I wish he had to hit’

    Aug 19, 2013, 1:10 AM EDT

    Yankees' Girardi agrues with home plate umpire Brian O'Nara in the second inning of their MLB American League baseball game against the Red Sox in Boston

    Joe Girardi had about four hours to think about what he was going to say after getting tossed in the second inning on Sunday’s Yankees-Red Sox game. His response to Ryan Dempster seemingly intentionally throwing at and hitting Alex Rodriguez: “I wish he had to hit. That’s what I wish.” So, basically, Girardi is saying…

    Yankees' Rodriguez celebrates his solo home run against Red Sox's Dempster in the sixth inning of their MLB American League Baseball game in Boston

    This one had a little bit of everything packed into a crisp four hours and 12 minutes. – After Boston grabbed a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first, Ryan Dempster drilled Alex Rodriguez with a 3-0 pitch to open the second. It was at least Dempster’s second attempt to hit him, but the…

  12. Ryan Dempster hits Alex Rodriguez with a fastball, umpire ejects Joe Girardi

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

    After the Red Sox took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning, third baseman Alex Rodriguez led off the top of the second inning for the Yankees. Sox starter Ryan Dempster‘s first pitch to Rodriguez was a fastball that went behind him towards his legs. Dempster’s next two pitches were waist-high inside,…

  13. Weight loss to blame for CC Sabathia’s woes?

    Aug 4, 2013, 11:10 PM EDT

    New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia throws against the Minnesota Twins

    In his latest column for the Boston Globe, Nick Cafardo cites a “talent evaluator”, who thinks CC Sabathia‘s weight loss is to blame for his lack of success in 2013. Some players just perform better carrying more weight. Sabathia seems to be one of them. Some think such a theory is silly, that Sabathia is…

  14. CC Sabathia struggled again last night

    Aug 3, 2013, 9:38 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia AP

    Make that four straight losses for CC Sabathia. The veteran southpaw struggled once again last night, giving up five runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Padres. Sabathia yielded a season-high 14 baserunners (11 hits and three walks), including a fourth-inning solo home run by Logan Forsythe. His 24 home runs allowed this season are…

    Yankees' Sabathia reacts after catcher Romine made a throwing error on a bunt by Bay Rays' Jennings and a run scored during their MLB American League game at Yankee Stadium

    Things are getting really ugly for CC Sabathia. After the big left-hander was knocked around by the Red Sox on Sunday, he gave up seven runs over five innings last night in a 10-6 loss to the Rays. Sabathia began the outing with a 1-2-3 first inning, but he allowed six runs on six hits…

  16. CC Sabathia: “I suck”

    Jul 22, 2013, 8:50 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia, Jonny Gomes

    It’s always something, I guess. On a night when the Yankees moribund offense actually goes out and scores some runs, the team’s ace doesn’t show. CC Sabathia gave up seven runs on nine hits in five innings. After the game he minced no words: “I suck. I wish I had an excuse or something. It…

  17. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 15, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Detroit Tigers

    These were the last baseball games that count — despite the claim about the All-Star Game counting, which is certainly does not in any real sense — until Friday. That’s some b.s. right there. Why don’t they play the All-Star Game with only 25 guys on a team and let the rest of the league…

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

    Jul 10, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Baltimore Orioles

    Rangers 8, Orioles 2: Adrian Beltre hit two homers on a 4 for 4, 5 RBI night. He has an 11 game hitting streak and is 21 for his last 43. Wrecking crew. — He’s not a member of the All-Star team despite a line of .319/.362/.551. Thank you, Jim Leyland, though, for giving us five middle…

  19. CC Sabathia wins his 200th game

    Jul 4, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    New York Yankees starting pitcher CC Sabathia throws against the Minnesota Twins

    CC Sabathia beat the Twins last night. That’s nothing new, he always beats the Twins. But it was significant for another reason: it was his 200th career win. That’s 200 wins against 108 losses in his 13th season. Sabathia turns 33 in a couple of weeks and he’s been remarkably durable in his career. As…

  20. Mark Teixeira’s contract another expensive miscue for Yankees

    Jun 26, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    When it was signed following the 2008 season, Mark Teixeira‘s eight-year, $180 million deal with the Yankees was the third biggest in MLB history and largest to go to someone not named Alex Rodriguez. Now it rivals Rodriguez’s as one of the worst in baseball. With the news Wednesday that Teixeira would undergo wrist surgery,…

  21. Who is Alex Rodriguez following on Twitter?

    Jun 26, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Screen Shot 2013-06-26 at 9.41.35 AM

    Sure, the big news about Alex Rodriguez joining Twitter this week is that he almost immediately managed to piss off Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, but as a Twitter addict I’m more interested in who A-Rod has chosen to follow. So far he’s followed 41 accounts, including lots of Yankees-related stuff like the Yankees’ official…

  22. Wil Myers hits grand slam off CC Sabathia for first major league home run

    Jun 22, 2013, 3:31 PM EDT

    Wil Myers AP

    Wil Myers hit his first major league home run in impressive fashion this afternoon against the Yankees, as he took left-hander CC Sabathia deep for a go-ahead grand slam in the top of the sixth inning at Yankee Stadium. You can watch it right here. It was an opposite-field homer for Myers, which was encouraging…

    Athletics 10, Mariners 2: This game was a Father’s Day treat for me. Why? Because I used it to teach my daughter how to keep score. I printed out scoresheets. I did a little sketch on the top of hers to illustrate the numbers which correspond with each defensive position. I paused the TV after…

  25. Brandon McCarthy headed to disabled list with shoulder problems

    Jun 1, 2013, 3:32 PM EDT

    Brandon McCarthy Getty

    Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Diamondbacks are placing right-hander Brandon McCarthy on the disabled list due to shoulder problems. This confirms a report by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Of course, shoulder issues are nothing new for McCarthy, who gave up six runs on nine hits over 2 2/3 innings in…
