  1. Pouliot’s postseason award picks: American League

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:18 AM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Evan Longoria made his case for moving up the MVP ballot with his big game Monday, but while it’s safe to say the Rays wouldn’t have reached the postseason without him, he was still no better than the AL’s third best third baseman. It was, in fact, the year of the third baseman in the…

  2. Joe Girardi has options and leverage. Including a possible slot in the Fox booth.

    With the Yankees season over a lot of attention will be paid to A-Rod’s arbitration, which starts today, and Robinson Cano‘s fre agency, which starts as soon as the playoffs are over.  But there is another loose end which is pretty darn important too: Joe Girardi. Girardi is a managerial free agent, essentially, as he’s…

  3. Andy Pettitte pitches the Yankees past the Astros in his final start

    Yankees starter Andy Pettitte shut down the Astros tonight in his final start of his career. The left-hander allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out five in a complete game effort. The lone Astros run came on a Chris Carter ground out in the fourth inning. Second baseman Robinson Cano…

  4. Alden Gonzalez explains why no Mike Trout extension is forthcoming

    Sep 27, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Many have assumed that the Angels will try to work out a long-term deal with Mike Trout this winter before the price tag becomes even more overwhelming, but there’s a very good reason that won’t be happening. And it has a lot to do with that hideous Vernon Wells deal still taking a toll. The Angels…

  5. Not so fast: GM says Alex Rodriguez is not skipping Yankees’ final series

    UPDATE: General manager Brian Cashman denied the New York Daily News report linked below, calling it “not accurate” and telling Andy McCullough of the Newark Star Ledger that Rodriguez has not asked to skip the final road trip. UPDATE #2: Joe Girardi also chimed in, saying he expects Rodriguez to be in Houston because “he…

  6. Curtis Granderson is looking forward to shopping around in free agency

    Sep 26, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    AP Granderson

    While the focus has understandably been on Robinson Cano and his reported contract demands, the Yankees have another key impending free agent in Curtis Granderson. Granderson is hitting the open market at a bad time, coming off an injury wrecked season at age 32, but his track record still puts him in line for a…

  8. Robinson Cano reportedly seeking a $305 million contract. Um, OK.

    Sep 26, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    cano gray getty

    Not $300M. It has to be $305M because, I dunno, taxes maybe. Yeah, let’s go with taxes: Our @Buster_ESPN reporting that according to sources, Robinson Cano is seeking a 10-yr $305M contract this offseason.. — Kevin Negandhi (@KNegandhiESPN) September 26, 2013   Folks: it’s going to be silly season soon. Misinformation, both accidental and tactically-placed…

  9. Yankees eliminated with Indians’ victory

    Yankees' Ryan, Cano and Reynolds wait for new pitcher after the Rays scored four runs in MLB game in New York

    It’s official: the Yankees’ season is over after 162 games for just the second time in the wild card era. The Bombers were eliminated from contention when the Indians topped the White Sox 7-2 on Wednesday evening. Just a few minutes later, they wrapped up an 8-3 loss to the Rays, leaving them with an…

    You know that dream where you are running and running but are not actually getting anywhere. I know people have all sorts of theories about this dream and what it means. Some say it indicates that you have too many things going in your life and can’t quite keep up. Some say it’s the body…

  11. Alex Rodriguez limited to DH duties due to sore hamstring

    Sep 14, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez Getty

    Bothered by a sore left hamstring, Alex Rodriguez will make his fourth straight start out of the DH spot this afternoon against the Red Sox. He’s nowhere close to 100 percent at the moment, as he had the chance to score the go-ahead run last night on a double by Robinson Cano, but had to…

  12. Robinson Cano bunted for a double against the Red Sox

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Robinson Cano

    Facing an infield shift with the bases empty and two outs in the first inning, Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano bunted down the third base line against Red Sox starter John Lackey. With third baseman Will Middlebrooks playing too far off the line, the ball trickled towards the stands to the left of the line. Shortstop…

  13. Levine: Robinson Cano is not a “re-sign at any cost” player

    Sep 11, 2013, 9:46 AM EDT

    cano gray getty

    Indeed, the Yankees president says no player is. But the comments were aimed at the team’s best player. Via ESPN New York, here are Randy Levine’s: thoughts on the Bombers re-signing Robinson Cano: “Hopefully he’s a Yankee,” Levine said. “Nobody is a re-sign at all costs, but we want him back and we feel good…

  14. Alex Rodriguez is batting second for the first time since 2006

    Sep 9, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    New York Yankees v Toronto Blue Jays

    Yankees manager Joe Girardi has moved Alex Rodriguez to the second spot in the lineup tonight, in between leadoff man Brett Gardner and No. 3 hitter Robinson Cano. Last time Rodriguez hit second in a big-league game? August 26, 2006. Back then Rodriguez was 30 years old and in his third season with the Yankees,…

  15. Red Sox best Mariano Rivera, beat Yankees in 10 innings

    Sep 6, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    Boston Red Sox Jacoby Ellsbury scores at home plate as New York Yankees Austin Romine cannot hold the throw in their MLB game in New York

    Call it “Deja Drew.” After the Red Sox let a five-run lead slip away, things were going all according to plan for the Yankees on Thursday. David Robertson pitched a perfect eighth up 8-7, and Mariano Rivera retired the first two batters he faced in the ninth. That’s when things unraveled. Mike Napoli, who was…

    Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 20, Tigers 4: Well, that was something. Eight homers in all for the Red Sox. Two from David Ortiz, who picked up his 2,000th career hit as well. Injury added to insult: Jose Iglesias left the game with shin splints. Cardinals 5, Reds 4: A sixteen inning affair in which Matt Adams homered…

  17. Ivan Nova holds Orioles to three hits in first career shutout

    Aug 31, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

    Ivan Nova Getty

    Ivan Nova tossed his first career shutout while Robinson Cano did the heavy lifting for the offense as the Yankees defeated the Orioles 2-0 this afternoon at Yankee Stadium. Nova gave up just three hits (all of them singles), one walk, and two hit-by-pitches while striking out five batters. He induced 15 swinging strikes and…

  18. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:56 AM EDT

    Ichiro Suzuki, Miguel Gonzalez

    CC Sabathia hardly delivered an ace-like performance last night, but fortunately for him, his offense was there to pick him up. On the strength of a five-run fifth inning, the Yankees defeated the Orioles 8-5 at Yankee Stadium and remain very much alive in the AL Wild Card race. Miguel Gonzalez failed to get an…

  19. Mark Reynolds is the Yankees starting second baseman tonight

    Aug 28, 2013, 5:37 PM EDT

    New York Yankees first baseman Mark Reynolds makes a sliding catch for the out against the Tampa Bay Rays during the first inning of their American League MLB baseball game in St. Petersburg, Florida

    With Robinson Cano day-to-day after being hit by a pitch, Eduardo Nunez was supposed to play second base. Except, Eduardo Nunez was scratched just a minute ago so … Nunez can’t go. Mark Reynolds will play second. Let’s get weird. — Andy McCullough (@McCulloughSL) August 28, 2013   Dear Lord, this is going to be…

    1995 World Series

    Braves 2, Indians 0: Tom Glavine with eight shutout innings and David Justice with a big homer. Wait, sorry. Having flashbacks. The real amazing thing here is that if you would have told me before the season that the Braves would have a game in late August where Elliot Johnson got a start and tripled…

    cano getty

    Robinson Cano departed Tuesday night’s game versus the Blue Jays after taking a J.A. Happ pitch off his left hand in the top of the first inning. But the early word from the Yankees’ medical staff is good. According to MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch, the star second baseman only has a left hand contusion, though he…

  23. YES doesn’t note when Robinson Cano doesn’t hustle? Really?

    Aug 26, 2013, 11:03 AM EDT

    Fun stuff from Phil Mushnick of the Post: he hates the fact that Robinson Cano doesn’t hustle. And he hates it even more that the Yankees broadcasters at YES don’t call Cano out for it. Really, he lays into the network for not noticing this, accusing them of being the Yankees’ Pravda or something: So…

    The Yankees found themselves down 4-0 in the second inning but they came back with three more runs in the third thanks to Robinson Cano‘s three-run homer.  It was his 200th in his career. Here it is: Andrew Mearns of Pinstriped Bible had a nice post recently about Cano’s milestone homers in the past. I’m guessing…
