  1. Cashman: No Mariano Rivera in 2012

    Jul 24, 2012, 2:31 PM EDT

    Mariano Rivera

    Mariano Rivera was proceeding as if he were going to pitch this September. And Rivera’s physical therapist waxed enthusiastic about the idea to the New York Post. But that’s not happening says Brian Cashman, who was interviewed about it on SiriusXM radio today. And, by the way, Cashman says, that physical therapist should shut up:…

  2. What does Dave Winfield think about Ichiro wearing his number?

    Jul 24, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    Dave Winfield

    This is what he thinks: Everyone’s asking about my thoughts on @yankees latest #31 Ichiro. I don’t know how many wore it before or after me but I wore it the best. — Dave Winfield (@DaveWinfieldHOF) July 24, 2012 Bob Wickman, Javier Vazquez and Hensley “Bam Bam” Muelens beg to differ. For that matter so…

  3. Ichiro singles in first at-bat as Yankees top Mariners

    Jul 24, 2012, 12:54 AM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    The Yankees ended their season-high four-game losing streak Monday, but this one was all about Ichiro Suzuki. Facing his old teammates in the ballpark in which he spent 11 1/2 seasons, Ichiro got a huge ovation in his first at-bat for the Yankees and responded by bowing towards the Safeco Field crowd. He then promptly…

  4. Ichiro Suzuki will have to swallow his pride to fit with Yankees

    Jul 23, 2012, 7:44 PM EDT

    Ichiro

    The Mariners were always nervous about making changes with Ichiro Suzuki. It took them several years to try him in center field, and when they finally moved him from the leadoff spot this year, they gave him plenty of notice to see how he’d react. Now, with Monday’s trade to the Yankees, Ichiro’s world is…

  5. Ichiro the Yankee: Mariners trade Suzuki to New York

    Jul 23, 2012, 6:09 PM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki

    On a day filled with big trades and rumored big trades this one qualifies as the most shocking: Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees have acquired Ichiro Suzuki from the Mariners for minor league pitchers D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar. Just last week Seattle general manager Jack Zduriencik insisted that Suzuki would…

  6. A’s sweep Yankees, win fifth straight by one run

    Jul 22, 2012, 8:26 PM EDT

    Coco Crisp

    It took them 12 innings this time, but the A’s completed a four-game sweep of the Yankees on Sunday, this time winning 5-4. They’ve won five straight games by exactly one run. The A’s are the first team since the 1999 Marlins to win five straight by the slimmers of margins. The streak started with…

  7. Miguel Cabrera hits two bombs to reach 300 homers

    Jul 22, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera took Phil Humber deep twice Sunday to reach 300 career homers and help the Tigers top the White Sox 6-4. Cabrera’s second homer made him the second Venezuelan to reach 300 career homers. The first was Andres Galarraga, who finished his career with 399. Quintin Berry and Brennan Boesch also homered for Detroit…

  8. The Yankees have some interest in Rick Ankiel

    Jul 21, 2012, 1:32 PM EDT

    Rick Ankiel Getty

    Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post hears that the Yankees “have shown some interest” in picking up Rick Ankiel. Ankiel was designated for assignment by the Nationals this week after batting just .228/.282/.411 with five home runs and a .694 OPS through 171 plate appearances. Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com wrote at the time that the…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. Brett Gardner to have elbow surgery next week, likely done for season

    Jul 19, 2012, 9:47 PM EDT

    Brett Gardner Getty

    Brett Gardner has been trying to come back from a right elbow injury for three months. And now he’ll likely have to wait until 2013 to play another major league game. According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, the Yankees announced this evening that Gardner will undergo surgery next week to remove…

  12. Reggie Jackson is back with the Yankees tonight in Oakland

    Jul 19, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez, Reggie Jackson

    You’ll be thrilled to know that Reggie Jackson has rejoined the Yankees for tonight’s series opener against the Athletics. Jackson, who is a “special advisor” with the Yankees, recently took a leave of absence from the team after he said Kirby Puckett, Gary Carter, Bert Blyleven, Jim Rice, Don Sutton, and Phil Niekro shouldn’t be…

  13. Hiroki Kuroda notches rare seven-inning shutout

    Jul 18, 2012, 5:35 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda

    With the rain showing no sign of stopping, Wednesday’s game between the Blue Jays and Yankees was called in the bottom of the seventh with the Bombers up 6-0, giving Hiroki Kuroda a seven-inning shutout. It was the first shutout (or complete game of any kind) for Kuroda since he had two in his rookie…

  14. Brett Lawrie exits after spill into concrete camera well

    Jul 18, 2012, 2:53 PM EDT

    Brett Lawrie

    Update: X-rays on Lawrie’s calf were negative, so the injury is being called a bruise. /// Brett Lawrie‘s all-out aggressiveness led to a nasty spill today, as the third baseman fell into the concrete camera well at Yankee Stadium going after Mark Teixeira‘s foul pop up Wednesday. Lawrie was able to get up immediately after…

  15. Report: The Phillies to offer Cole Hamels six years, $130 million

    Jul 18, 2012, 1:30 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    Jon Heyman reported the other day that the Phillies were prepared to offer “more than $120 million” to Cole Hamels. Now he’s getting more specific: The Phillies are sending signals that they are planning to make an initial offer to star lefthanded pitcher Cole Hamels for about $130 million over six years within the next…

  16. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 18, 2012, 6:12 AM EDT

    April

    Angels/Giants 22, Tigers/Braves 0: So, I’m a Braves fan and my girlfriend is a Tigers fans and each of our teams got the crap beat out of them last night. So we agreed that baseball sucks and decided to watch downloaded “Parks and Recreation” episodes instead. Good call, yes? I mean, Mike Trout and Buster…

  17. CC Sabathia shuts down Blue Jays in return from disabled list

    Jul 17, 2012, 11:45 PM EDT

    CC Sabathia

    Back from the disabled list, CC Sabathia didn’t look like he missed a beat. Then again, the Yankees hardly missed one while he was gone. Sabathia pitched scoreless ball into the seventh inning as the Yankees beat the Blue Jays 6-1 on Tuesday. The AL East-leading Yankees went 12-6 while their ace was sidelined due…

  18. Brett Gardner had another setback, may miss rest of season

    Jul 17, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Brett Gardner Getty

Brendan Prunty of the Newark Star Ledger reports that Gardner had to be shut down due to soreness in his…

  19. 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…

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

    Jul 17, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…

  21. Mariano Rivera is aiming to pitch in September

    Jul 16, 2012, 7:18 PM EDT

    Mariano Rivera

    Even though the blood clot in his leg delayed his ACL surgery, Mariano Rivera is still hoping he can make it back in time to pitch for the Yankees during the final month of the season. “That’s my goal,” Rivera said on Michael Kay’s radio show Monday. “Definitely, that’s my goal. I’m not thinking about…

  22. Report: The Phillies to offer Hamels $120 million. It still won’t be enough.

    Jul 16, 2012, 5:01 PM EDT

    Cole Hamels

    I expect we’ll get a lot of this in the coming weeks then, when Hamels doesn’t sign an extension, it will go quiet. Then, when it comes to free agent time, the numbers will be higher. But for the time being, Jon Heyman reports: The Phillies are said to be planning to offer at least…

  23. Heyman: the Yankees have talked to Philly about Shane Victorino

    Jul 16, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies  v Los Angeles Dodgers

    While most of us assume that the Yankees are all about the pitching at the trade deadline, Jon Heyman tells us that isn’t so: They’ve talked to the Phillies about Shane Victorino and the Diamondbacks about Justin Upton, but Upton is a major long shot for them and right now they see the price tag…

  24. 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…

  25. Ernesto Frieri finally gave up a run, admits to being human

    Jul 16, 2012, 1:18 PM EDT

    Ernesto Frieri

    Ernesto Frieri came into yesterday’s game against the Yankees with a 0.00 ERA in 26.1 innings spread over 26 appearances for the Angels since they acquired him from the Padres in early May, but he’s perfect no more. Frieri walked Robinson Cano to lead off the ninth inning, Mark Teixeira followed with a two-run homer,…
