    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. The Teams Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees The Matchups Game 1 Saturday in New York: Doug Fister vs. Andy Pettitte…

  2. CC Sabathia wiggles out of bases-loaded jam in eighth inning

    CC Sabathia dominated the Orioles over the first seven innings tonight, but the Orioles had their chance in the top of the eighth. They failed to deliver the knockout punch. Matt Wieters led off the eighth with a single and Manny Machado drew a walk before Mark Reynolds struck out swinging for the first out…

  4. Looking ahead to two more Game 5s

    Oct 12, 2012, 9:11 AM EDT

    Washington Nationals' Jayson Werth rounds the bases after hitting a game-winning walk-off solo home run against the St. Louis Cardinals during Game 4 of their MLB NLDS baseball series in Washington

    Four best of five playoff series, four Game 5s. Life is good. We do it again two more times tonight, with the following action on tap: Orioles at Yankees, 5:07 PM ET, TBS:  It has been an offense-free zone for both teams, but it’s not surprising given the big names and big contracts that the Yankees…

  5. Eric Chavez over Alex Rodriguez the right move for Game 5

    Oct 12, 2012, 1:25 AM EDT

    Yankees' Rodriguez strikes out against the Orioles during Game 4 of their MLB ALDS baseball playoff series in New York

    Darren O’Day isn’t a conventional pitcher. He’s given plenty of quality right-handed hitters a tough time during his big-league career. Still, it was kind of telling that Alex Rodriguez couldn’t  catch up to his 85-mph fastball in Thursday’s loss to the Orioles. A-Rod did get a single and a walk in five plate appearances Thursday.…

  7. Joe Girardi moves Alex Rodriguez to DH, but leaves him as No. 3 hitter

    Oct 10, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Joe Girardi made a change with Alex Rodriguez, but it isn’t the one many Yankees fans (and at least one HardballTalk writer) have been clamoring for. The manager has Rodriguez starting at designated hitter tonight rather than his usual third base, but Rodriguez remains the No. 3 hitter. Eric Chavez is starting at third base…

  8. Mark Teixeira in Yankees’ lineup for first time since Sept. 8

    Oct 1, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    teixeira getty

    As expected Mark Teixeira is back in the Yankees’ lineup after sitting out 20 straight games and 30 of the past 31 games with a calf injury, playing for the first time since September 8. In his absence the Yankees initially turned to Casey McGehee, Steve Pearce, and Eric Chavez at first base, but recently…

  9. Eric Chavez got upset that the A’s enjoyed themselves on Saturday

    Sep 24, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays v New York Yankees

    The Yankees and Athletics played a 14 inning game on Saturday. It was kind of a wild one. But Eric Chavez wanted the A’s to know that their enthusiasm, excitement and general tomfoolery was out of line: After Saturday’s 10-9 Yankee win, Chavez told the Post’s Joel Sherman that following each of Oakland’s three homers…

  10. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 111-81

    Ben Sheets

    It’s getting to be that time of year, so here is the first of two stabs at a Top 111 free agents list. The other will come shortly after the World Series concludes. Players are ranked based on how I believe teams perceive them, not how I view them myself. Essentially, I rank the players…

  11. Alex Rodriguez could return from broken hand Monday

    Aug 31, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    Barring a setback Alex Rodriguez could come off the disabled list and rejoin the Yankees’ lineup as soon as Monday, according to general manager Brian Cashman. Rodriguez is currently rehabbing his broken hand at Single-A and has been sidelined for more than a month, during which time the Yankees are just 17-16 despite Eric Chavez…

  12. Mark Teixeira out 1-2 weeks with Grade 1 calf strain

    Aug 27, 2012, 11:27 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira Getty

    11:27 PM: According to Sweeny Murti of WFAN, Mark Teixeira said he was diagnosed with a Grade 1 calf strain and thinks he could be out anywhere from one to two weeks. Of course, it’s possible he could miss more time. 11:10 PM: No word yet on the MRI results, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi…

  13. 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…

  14. Batting practice is a big waste of time

    Aug 17, 2012, 8:51 AM EDT

    Byron Buxton

    Or so says most major leaguers. The New York Times has a great story about that: But despite its almost sacred place in the game, there is one little secret about batting practice: many players think it is a colossal waste of time, a mind-numbing, flaw-producing, strategically empty exercise. Eric Chavez of the Yankees is a…

  15. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 10, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    New York Mets starting pitcher Dickey throws a knuckleball as he pitches to the Miami Marlins during the ninth inning of their MLB National League game in New York

    Mets 6, Marlins 1: R.A. Dickey continues his dominant year. He struck out ten and didn’t walk any while tossing a complete game. And we may see more of him soon. Royals 8, Orioles 2: Manny Machado made his major league debut. Two for four with a triple. Not bad! No one else did anything,…

  16. GIF of the day: Eric Chavez is really sorry, Cody Eppley

    Aug 8, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    I-am-sorry

    Here’s one of my favorite moments of the season in GIF form, via Chad Moriyama. Basically Eric Chavez threw the ball back to Yankees pitcher Cody Eppley … who wasn’t looking. And, as they say, hilarity ensued:

  17. CC Sabathia strikes out 10 in complete game win over Mariners

    Aug 3, 2012, 11:14 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    CC Sabathia and Russell Martin were paired together tonight for just the third time this season and the first time since April 11. We’ll likely see them work together more often the rest of the way. Sabathia allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in a complete game 6-3 victory over the Mariners…

  18. 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.…

  19. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

  20. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:21 AM EDT

    Kendrys Morales, Albert Pujols

    Angels 15, Rangers 8: Kendrys Morales hit homers from each side of the plate in the sixth inning — one of which was a grand slam — and drove in six runs overall as the Angels make mincemeat out of the Rangers. Roy Oswalt got tattooed. Between that, Cliff Lee trade rumors and Roy Halladay‘s…

  21. 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…

  22. Nick Swisher doesn’t understand why A’s fans boo him

    Jul 20, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    nick swisher and eric chavez

    Nick Swisher was a fan favorite during his four seasons with the A’s and left the team not by choice but because he was traded to the White Sox following the 2007 season. He’s been back to Oakland as an opposing player plenty of times since then, but after being booed by A’s fans last…

  23. Yankees activate Eric Chavez from DL, send Eduardo Nunez to minors

    May 11, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    eduardo-nunez-yankees

    Eduardo Nunez has struggled defensively at every position he’s tried for the Yankees, which recently includes starts in left field for the first time in his professional career. That has limited his playing time despite a decent .728 OPS and today the Yankees decided he’d be better off starting regularly at Triple-A, demoting him to…

  24. Yankees place Eric Chavez on seven-day disabled list for concussion, call up Jayson Nix

    May 3, 2012, 5:10 PM EDT

    Eric Chavez, Joe Girardi

    Eric Chavez suffered whiplash diving for a ball defensively last night, leaving the game with a possible concussion, and the Yankees have now placed him on the seven-day disabled list designed specifically for concussions. Chavez initially remained in the game and came to the plate in the next half-inning, but had to leave in the…

  25. Eric Chavez leaves game with whiplash, possible concussion

    May 3, 2012, 8:52 AM EDT

    Eric Chavez, Joe Girardi

    Eric Chavez has a pretty rich injury history, but this one is a lot different than a bum shoulder or knee or something.  He left last night’s Yankees-Orioles game in the middle of an at bat due to what is being called whiplash and concussion symptoms. He likely sustained the injury in the top of the…
