  1. Players choose Cabrera over Trout as TSN’s 2012 Player of the Year

    Oct 26, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera is The Sporting News’ 2012 Player of the Year after being picked by 108 of the 203 players to vote. Mike Trout was second with 71 votes. No one else got more than five votes, and surprisingly enough, the player with five was Adrian Beltre. Likely NL MVP Buster Posey received just two…

    The Yankees just announced that Derek Jeter underwent surgery today in North Carolina to repair a left ankle fracture.

    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.…

  4. An early guess at Team USA’s WBC lineup

    If Derek Jeter‘s broken ankle didn’t take him out of the mix for the World Baseball Classic the moment it happened, today’s news that he needs surgery definitely makes the issue moot. But as unfortunate as Jeter’s injury is for the Yankees, it’s not necessarily a bad thing for Team USA in next spring’s World…

  7. Donald Trump has all kinds of opinions about the Yankees

    Donald Trump

    Donald Trump weighed in on A-Rod’s struggles and Derek Jeter‘s injury in the past day or so. And he did it with his usual subtlety. On A-Rod: Trump called on star Alex Rodriguez to donate his contract to charity. “He doesn’t make the Yankees any money and he doesn’t perform,” Trump tweeted. “He is a $30M/yr…

  8. Verlander vs. The Yankees: it hardly seems fair

    Oct 16, 2012, 6:39 AM EDT

    The Tigers are up 2-0 in the ALCS. They are back home in Detroit. The Yankees offense is sending scribes to the thesaurus to find new words to describe their anemic offense ( feeble, infirm, pallid, sickly, wan, impotent, debilitated, decrepit, enervated, faint, flaccid, forceless, frail, impuissant).  And, oh yeah, Justin Verlander is on the mound…

Here’s more from Swisher: That’s the last thing that I ever thought would be…

    New York Yankees shortstop Jeter screams as he injures himself fielding a ball hit by  Detroit Tigers' Peralta during the 12th inning of Game 1 of their MLB ALCS playoff baseball series in New York

    A source tells Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York that Derek Jeter will likely need surgery on his broken ankle. While he has yet to meet with the specialist in North Carolina who will make that final determination, Matthews is reporting that Jeter suffered ligament damage making surgery necessary.  The surgery should not affect his availability for…

    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.

  14. Jayson Nix will take over as the Yankees’ shortstop

    There was some thought after Derek Jeter was diagnosed with a fractured left ankle late Saturday night that the Yankees might try Alex Rodriguez at shortstop at some point during the remainder of this 2012 postseason. But that will not be happening. Yankees manager Joe Girardi made it clear to reporters in his postgame press…

  15. It’s just not the postseason without Derek Jeter

    Oct 14, 2012, 1:49 AM EDT

    Derek Jeter

    The Yankees were already going it without Mariano Rivera this month, a strange sight to everyone who has followed baseball since the mid-1990s. But then Rivera was only out there for one or two innings per night. Derek Jeter was the immovable object. The Yankees have played in 158 postseason games since 1996, and Jeter…

    Raul Ibanez provided another dose of postseason heroics for the Yankees on Saturday evening in Game 1 of the ALCS, but it didn’t matter in the end. The Tigers rallied after Jose Valverde‘s ugly ninth-inning blowup, tacking on two runs in the top of the 12th inning in an eventual 6-4 victory in The Bronx.…

  22. 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…

Jeter drew a one-out walk and scored all the way from first base after Suzuki put one into the right-center field gap. Robinson Cano struck…
