    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…

    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…

    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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

    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,…

  8. 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:

  9. 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…

    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.…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

    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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

    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.

  17. 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…

On the plus side, Buchholz’s start was pretty good for…

    Scott Elarton

    36-year-old Scott Elarton, last seen in the majors four years ago with the Royals, started his comeback with the Phillies on Monday and pitched two perfect innings against the Yankees.

    Phillies' Ibanez reacts to grounding out to end the seventh inning of their MLB baseball playoff game against the Cardinals in Philadelphia

    Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com indicated last night that the Yankees would finalize contracts with Raul Ibanez and Eric Chavez once A.J. Burnett is officially traded to the Pirates. That may turn out to be the case, but Joel Sherman of the New York Post is hearing that it’s not a sure thing they’ll add either…

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman indicates that the Yankees have agreements with left-handed hitters Raul Ibanez and Eric Chavez that will be finalized after the A.J. Burnett deal is approved by the league. The Yankees looked at picking up a left-handed option at DH in a Burnett trade and reportedly had a deal done for Bobby…

  23. The Yankees and Pirates are still talking about A.J. Burnett

    Feb 10, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    A.J. Burnett

    The Pirates apparently nixed a proposed A.J. Burnett-for-Garrett Jones deal, but Heyman reports that the sides are still talking and that it’s more along the lines of salary dumpage now.  Specifically, they’re “a few million apart” on a deal that would basically send Burnett to Pittsburgh in exchange for salary relief. And — setting aside…

  24. The Yankees are still trying to peddle A.J. Burnett

    Feb 8, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    New York Yankees Burnett pitches to the Detroit Tigers during the first inning of Game 4 in their MLB  American League Division Series baseball playoffs in Detroit

    Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Yankees are still trying to trade A.J. Burnett. The purpose — apart from the totally understandable and desirable deburnettification effects such a move would create  – is to shake free some payroll to sign a DH or Eric Chavez or someone: … the Yankees are…
