  1. CC Sabathia dispatches Indians in return from disabled list

    Aug 24, 2012, 11:22 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia never thought his elbow issue was of major concern, and he dealt a blow to anyone who doubted him by holding the Indians to one run in 7 1/3 innings and striking out nine in a victory Friday night. Sabathia allowed just four hits in improving to 13-3 on the season. An Asdrubal…

  2. Eric Chavez, unlike Derek Jeter, wants to be a manager

    Aug 24, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays v New York Yankees

    Earlier this week Derek Jeter laughed off a question about whether he’d like to become a manager someday, saying: “No chance. No chance. Nada. Zero. No, not a chance.” His Yankees teammate Eric Chavez, however, has been thinking about managing for a while now, telling Dan Barbarisi of the Wall Street Journal: One way or…

  3. Quote of the Day: Derek Jeter on possibly managing one day

    Aug 23, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    There was some random talk back at the end of the Joe Torre years that it would be fun to make Derek Jeter the Yankees’ player manager.  Setting aside the face that being the manager of the Yankees is more than a full time job and that part of that job is insulating guys like…

  4. Why it’s worth calling out idiots like Skip Bayless

    Aug 23, 2012, 12:36 PM EDT

    megaphone

    In the wake of the Skip Bayless/Derek Jeter nonsense this morning an age-old complaint has arose on Twitter and in the comments among a lot of people I respect.  It basically goes like this: “Why pay any attention to what Skip Bayless says? You’re just giving him attention and that’s what he wants.” Yes. It…

  5. Skip Bayless thinks we’re “remiss” if we don’t wonder if Derek Jeter is doing PEDs

    Aug 23, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Skip Bayless

    Derek Jeter is having a great year. Especially for a 38 year-old. But the thing about elite,  Hall of Fame talents is that they often have great years late in their career. That’s sort of part of being an elite, Hall of Fame talent. But Skip Bayless thinks it is incumbent upon us to be…

  6. Chris Sale fans 13 as White Sox finish sweep of Yankees

    Aug 22, 2012, 10:53 PM EDT

    Chris Sale

    Chris Sale held the Yankees to one run in 7 2/3 innings and struck out 13 Wednesday as the White Sox won 2-1 to complete a three-game sweep in Chicago. The Yankees struck out a season-high 15 times in the game, and they were swept even though Derek Jeter homered in all three games of…

  7. Derek Jeter moves into 12th place on all-time hits list

    Aug 21, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    New York Yankees Derek Jeter hits single against the Oakland Athletics in New York

    Derek Jeter went 4-for-5 with a homer last night, passing Hall of Famer Nap Lajoie and moving into a tie with Hall of Famer Eddie Murray for 12th place on the all-time hits list with 3,255. Next up on the list is Willie Mays with 3,283 hits, so Jeter is likely just a couple weeks…

  8. Yankees hit five homers, top Red Sox 6-4

    Aug 17, 2012, 11:58 PM EDT

    Nick Swisher

    The Bronx Bombers, already with 22 more longballs than any other team in the league entering Friday’s action, pounded out five homers Friday night in defeating the Red Sox 6-4. Nisk Swisher went deep twice on the night, and Curtis Granderson and Russell Martin went back-to-back in the second inning. Derek Jeter lined a solo…

  9. Derek Jeter hits 250th career home run

    Aug 17, 2012, 8:51 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Derek Jeter‘s liner to left field in the fifth inning Friday off Franklin Morales was his 250th career home run. He moved into fifth place all-time among players who have played at least half of their games at shortstop: 1. Alex Rodriguez – 644 2. Cal Ripken Jr. – 431 3. Miguel Tejada – 304…

  10. Robinson Cano returns, Mark Teixeira sits with sore wrist

    Aug 17, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    The Yankees have Robinson Cano back from a sore neck Friday in the opener of a three-game series against the Red Sox, but Mark Teixeira is absent from the lineup due to an inflamed wrist, the LoHud Yankees Blog reports. Teixeira initially injured the wrist on July 29 and missed a couple of games. “It’s…

  11. Chad Curtis has another charge filed against him

    Aug 15, 2012, 11:02 AM EDT

    Chad Curtis

    In June we learned that Chad Curtis will stand trial in Michigan on five counts of criminal sexual conduct.  Let’s make it an even six: In June, the 43-year-old was ordered to stand trial on charges he inappropriately touched two students at a school where he was a volunteer strength trainer. Barry County prosecutors this week said a…

  12. Even the Yankees appreciated Johnny Pesky

    Aug 13, 2012, 7:07 PM EDT

    Johnny Pesky, Nomar Garciaparra

    The Yankees will hold a moment of silence to honor Red Sox Hall of Famer Johnny Pesky prior to tonight’s game against the Rangers, and Derek Jeter had a great line in remembering  the former shortstop and coach Monday. The Globe’s Peter Abraham has the quote: “He was always so nice to me throughout the…

  13. Mark Teixeira back in Yankees lineup after wrist injury

    Aug 3, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    Mark Teixeria pronounced himself ready to go after taking grounders and batting practice prior to Friday’s game and was inserted back into the lineup at first base after a two-game absence. Teixeira injured his left wrist Sunday and aggravated it while playing Monday. After an MRI Tuesday came back negative, he was diagnosed with inflammation.…

  14. Alex Rodriguez suffers fractured hand on HBP

    Jul 25, 2012, 1:10 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez 2

    Alex Rodriguez suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left hand when he was hit by a Felix Hernandez slider on Tuesday night and will go on the disabled list, the Yankees announced after the 4-2 loss to the Mariners. Here’s the video. Even though it wasn’t a fastball at 88 mph, it looked like Rodriguez…

  15. Six inducted to the Irish-American Baseball Hall of Fame

    Jul 20, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Tom Kelly

    Despite the best efforts of 19th century racists, the Irish took over baseball in the late 1800s and never really let it go. And because of that, appropriately enough, the Irish American Baseball Hall of Fame is a thing. And, wonderfully, it’s housed in a great Irish pub/baseball bar.   Today it announced its 2012…

  16. Will Derek Jeter be the first unanimous Hall of Fame inductee? Probably not, thanks to the schmucks

    Jul 17, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Alan Hoskins of the Kansas City Kansan asked several experts — ESPN people and some respected baseball writers — if they think Derek Jeter will be the first unanimously-elected Hall of Fame inductee. The response was itself unanimous: nope. No one, of course, argued that it was because he wasn’t deserving of first-ballot induction because…

  17. Players think a considerably overrated player is the most underrated in baseball

    Jul 16, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Michael Young

    Michael Young is the absolute king of overrated players. That does not mean he’s bad. In fact he’s been quite good over the course of his career. But he has been considered far better than he really is — has been lauded for his game-changing intangibles, leadership and MVP-worthiness despite there being scant evidence of any…

  18. What to watch for in tonight’s All-Star Game

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez. Still, my favorite part will take place before that. The Midsummer Classic isn’t the must-see event it was before Baseball Tonight, MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv made seeing the league’s stars in action so much easier.…

  19. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Jul 9, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  20. American League All-Star lineup has Derek Jeter leading off, Josh Hamilton batting third

    Josh Hamilton

    American League manager Ron Washington officially announced Justin Verlander as his starter at today’s press and also revealed his lineup, which features Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter leading off, Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton batting third, and Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista cleaning up: 1. Derek Jeter, SS 2. Robinson Cano, 2B 3. Josh Hamilton, LF 4.…

  21. Derek Jeter says muscle spasms in shoulder “no big deal”

    Jul 9, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    Not only did Derek Jeter uncharacteristically drop a routine pop up last night, he also experienced muscle spasms in his right shoulder during the Yankees victory over the Red Sox. However, he remained in the game and afterward told reporters that the muscle spasms are “no big deal” and “happens all the time.” Joe Girardi…

  22. Derek Jeter drops a pop up!

    Jul 8, 2012, 9:56 PM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    It only happens once a decade or so, but Derek Jeter dropped a pop up in the first inning Sunday night, giving the Red Sox an early run. It couldn’t have been a more routine play for Jeter, and he’s always been one of the game’s best shortstops when it comes to handling flyballs. Typically,…

  23. Michael Bourn replaces Ian Desmond in All-Star Game

    Jul 7, 2012, 5:49 PM EDT

    Ian Desmond, Adam Jones

    Ian Desmond is 2-for-2 with a home run today, but the league has announced that he’ll sit out the All-Star Game and be replaced by Braves center fielder Michael Bourn. Desmond, who leads all shortstops with 16 home runs this season, has been nursing a strained left oblique for three weeks and decided the rest…

  25. Sorry, Yankees fans. Bryce Harper likes D.C. just fine.

    Jun 29, 2012, 11:57 AM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    The Washington Post’s Adam Kilgore has four pages of goodness on Bryce Harper today, and it’s pretty much a must-read. Among the topics Harper discusses are his fondness for D.C., how he would have majored in journalism had he gone to college and his intention to abstain from alcohol. And he only referred to himself…
