    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…

    Ivan Nova (47)

    Ivan Nova has been a mess in the second half, including back-to-back ugly starts in which he lasted just 2.1 and 4.2 innings, and today manager Joe Girardi dumped him from the Yankees’ rotation. David Phelps will take Nova’s place against the Red Sox tomorrow, with Nova being available out of the bullpen for what…

  12. The Yankees do the rookie hazing thing a little bit differently than other teams

    Sep 24, 2012, 12:03 PM EDT

    Vader

    Some people say that dressing up your rookies in women’s clothes during the de rigueur late season hazing is degrading and possibly homophobic.  I don’t feel too strongly about that. I think it’s kinda lame and unimaginative, but whatever you want to do, go ahead. Extra points to the Yankees, though, for breaking with that…

    We’ve heard a lot recently about the Orioles’ success in one-run games and the Rays’ inability to win one. Well, their fortunes finally reversed today. We’ll start with the Orioles. They entered the bottom of the seventh inning with a 3-1 lead against the Yankees, but things unraveled from there. Wei-Yin Chen was ahead of…

    Many have predicted that the Orioles’ negative run differential would eventually catch up with them. Yet here we are on September 1 and the Orioles are just two games behind the Yankees for first place in the American League East. Fun times. The Orioles continued to put the pressure on last night, topping the Yankees…

  18. Ivan Nova is placed on the disabled list

    Aug 23, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova

    Yesterday I prematurely wrote that the Yankees had placed Ivan Nova on the DL with some sort of arm or shoulder trouble. Turns out he was only reported to be skipping a start.  This time, however, he really is going on the DL. He had an MRI and it showed inflammation in his right rotator cuff.…
