    We continue our morning of “let’s find some sort of baseball connection to stuff that is way, way more important than baseball because, man, there isn’t a lot of baseball news yet today.” Next up: those restrictions last week requiring people driving into Manhattan to have at least three people in their cars in order…

  2. CC Sabathia has surgery to remove bone spur from elbow

    Oct 25, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone spur from his elbow, which qualifies as good–or at least not bad–news amid worries that the Yankees ace might have a more serious injury. Barring a setback he’ll have plenty of time to get healthy for spring training and pitchers regularly have no issues returning from…

  3. CC Sabathia says he’s “a little” concerned about his left elbow

    While CC Sabathia refuses to blame his left elbow for his poor performance in Game 4 of the ALCS against the Tigers on Thursday, he told George A. King of the New York Post today that he’s a little concerned about his upcoming visit to Dr. James Andrews. “A little bit,” the Yankees ace said…

  4. Matt LaPorta undergoes hip surgery to repair torn labrum

    Oct 19, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Matt LaPorta

    Matt LaPorta was already facing an uncertain future in Cleveland after repeatedly struggling in various stints with the Indians and now he’ll have to come back from hip surgery. Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports that LaPorta underwent surgery yesterday to repair a torn labrum in his left hip and “will need three to four months…

  5. Brian Cashman on CC Sabathia: “We’re going to look at that elbow, no doubt about it”

    Oct 19, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia insisted after last night’s ugly outing that the elbow problems he dealt with earlier in the season weren’t an issue, but general manager Brian Cashman noted that the Yankees will ask him to get checked out anyway. “Let’s put it this way, we’re going to look at that elbow, no doubt about it,”…

  6. Ranking the blame as Yankees get swept

    It takes more than a couple of goats for a team to get swept in a seven-game series. Let’s run down the five people most responsible for the Yankee meltdown. Derek Jeter‘s ankle not being a person, we’ll leave it out of this. 5. Eric Chavez – Alex Rodriguez struggled mightily, yet Chavez was worse.…

  7. Tigers finish off sweep of Yankees to advance to World Series

    Oct 18, 2012, 7:36 PM EDT

    Tigers Reuters

    We know one team who will still be alive next Wednesday. Finishing off a thoroughly dominating performance, the Tigers topped the Yankees 8-1 at Comerica Park today to sweep the ALCS in four games and advance to the World Series. CC Sabathia is a pretty good pitcher to have on your side facing elimination, but…

  8. UPDATE: Tigers up 6-0 in the bottom of the fourth — Sabathia knocked out of the game

    Oct 18, 2012, 5:48 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    UPDATE: Make it 6-0. Delmon Young singled and Johnny Peralta homered. Then Andy Dirks doubled and Joe Girardi came and got Sabathia.  There are still many innings to play here, but, it looks the Tigers are World Series bound. 5:41 PM: Make it 4-0: Miguel Cabrera just hit a two-run shot in the bottom of…

  10. If the Yankees weren’t doomed before, they are now

    Oct 17, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    No, the Yankees probably weren’t beating the Tigers four times in five days either. Still, Wednesday’s rainout made the assignment that much tougher. – Because they’re playing four games in four days, the Yankees have lost the ability to pitch Game 4 starter CC Sabathia on three days’ rest in Game 7. At best, he’ll…

  11. Game 4 of ALCS postponed due to rain in Detroit

    From Bryan Hoch of MLB.com comes word that Game 4 of the ALCS has been postponed due to rainy conditions in and around Comerica Park. It will be made up at 4:07 p.m. ET on Thursday. CC Sabathia and Max Scherzer didn’t even bother warming up, so they’ll both be fresh for the makeup. The rest of…

    Sorry, but I can’t get enough of members of the Yankees commentariat trying to outdo one another to draw the broadest, most dramatic conclusions from the results of three games.  It’s great fun. The latest is Ian O’Connor of ESPN New York who uses the Yankees’ ALCS meltdown to help us identify who are and…

  14. Jack Morris takes a swipe at the Strasburg shutdown

    Oct 17, 2012, 10:31 AM EDT

    Jack Morris

    Jack Morris was asked about the exploits of aces Justin Verlander and CC Sabathia. And he used the opportunity to take a swipe at the Nationals: “I think everybody in the Washington Nationals’ front office should pay attention that guys should go deep into games … when I see CC complete a game two days…

  15. Looking ahead to tonight’s playoff action

    Oct 17, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Lohse delivers a pitch to a Washington Nationals batter during the first inning of their MLB National League baseball game in St. Louis

    Sad jams:  this could be the last time we have multiple baseball games on one day this year. What’s on tap: Giants vs. Cardinals, 4PM Eastern: Fox:  The series is tied 1-1, but in some ways it feels like the Cardinals are behind. Probably because their starting pitching is in need of some stability. Indeed,…

  16. Justin Verlander cruises, Tigers top Yanks in ALCS Game 3

    Oct 16, 2012, 11:38 PM EDT

    The Tigers are one win away from the World Series. Justin Verlander allowed just one run over 8 1/3 innings and Delmon Young homered as the Tigers rolled to a 2-1 defeat of the Yankees on Tuesday at Comerica Park, pushing their ALCS lead to 3-0. Verlander finished with only three strikeouts, but he issued…

  17. Don’t declare the Yankees dead just yet

    Oct 16, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v New York Yankees - Game Two

    As I wrote this morning, the smart money is on the Tigers. They’re up 2-0, they’re at home and they have Justin Verlander on the hill. Not a bad way to live life. But no matter who is favored, I’m rather surprised at how many people seem to be totally writing the Yankees off as…

  18. Anibal Sanchez dominates, Yankees sleepwalk through loss to Tigers in Game 2 of ALCS

    Oct 14, 2012, 7:33 PM EDT

    anibal sanchez getty

    Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez yielded just three hits over seven shutout innings and third baseman Miguel Cabrera went 2-for-4 with an RBI as the Tigers rolled to a far-too-easy 3-0 victory over the Yankees on Sunday evening in Game 2 of the ALCS. Yankees fans might choose to pout about a blown call at second…

  19. Yankees to use Phil Hughes in Game 3, CC Sabathia in Game 4

    Shortly after we learned that Hiroki Kuroda would start on short rest for Game 2 of the ALCS against the Tigers tomorrow, Yankees manager Joe Girardi set the rotation for the rest of the series. Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees will use Phil Hughes in Game 3 on Tuesday and CC…

  20. Hiroki Kuroda to start Game 2 of ALCS against Tigers

    Oct 13, 2012, 4:24 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    When the Yankees announced earlier today that they added Cody Eppley to their bullpen for the ALCS, the speculation was that David Phelps would start Game 2 tomorrow. That’s not the case. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, Hiroki Kuroda will make the start in Game 2 on three days’ rest. Kuroda,…

    You can’t predict baseball, but you can at least lay out the parameters. So let’s take a look at what the Tigers and Yankees have in store for us in the American League Championship Series.

  22. Tigers announce ALCS rotation, open with Doug Fister

    Oct 12, 2012, 11:32 PM EDT

    Doug Fister

    Tigers manager Jim Leyland announced his ALCS rotation with Doug Fister and Anibal Sanchez getting the ball in the first two games in New York this weekend. Justin Verlander is scheduled to pitch Game 3 and a potential Game 7. Max Scherzer will be held back until Game 4, meaning he’ll get just one start…

  23. CC Sabathia unlikely to make next start until ALCS Game 4

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:49 PM EDT

    New York Yankees starting pitcher Sabathia and first baseman Teixeira celebrate in their clubhouse after defeating the Baltimore Orioles in Game 5 of their MLB ALDS baseball playoff series in New York

    Because of the unusual playoff schedule this year, the only way the Yankees will be able to get two starts out of CC Sabathia in the ALCS is by using him on short rest once. That’s because the Yankees won’t have a day off before the ALCS begins Saturday in New York. The Tigers get…

  24. So much for Adam Jones’ breakthrough season

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Adam Jones

    Adam Jones hit 32 homers and scored 103 runs for the Orioles during his finest regular season to date. Which is pretty hard to believe giving how badly he bombed during the ALDS. Jones went 2-for-23 against the Yankees and led the world in ugly at-bats. To go along with his six strikeouts, he had…

  25. “Oriole Magic” comes up just short against Yankees in ALDS

    Oct 12, 2012, 8:19 PM EDT

    Buck Showalter Getty

    Nobody gave the Orioles much of a chance in the one-game Wild Card playoff against the Rangers last Friday, so it’s not surprising that they entered the ALDS as the underdogs against the big bad Yankees. However, this series followed a very similar path to how their regular season played out. They surprised, they overachieved,…
