Found September 18, 2013 on Lady At The Bat:
Sadly, after last night's loss in Toronto, the end is near for the New York Yankees.To think about this, let alone write about it, is too depressing. I will, instead, focus on one of the few highlights of the game. Curtis Granderson's sliding catch with two out and a runner in scoring position in the bottom of the fifth inning was huge (at the time), preventing (or, should I say, delaying) Toronto's second run from crossing the plate.In case you missed it, click here to see it.Thanks, Grandy.Eleven games left.

The New York Yankees take another big blow

The 2013 New York Yankees are, if nothing else, resilient. But after being swept by the Red Sox this past weekend, you have to wonder how many more punches this team can take. The loss of Brett Gardner may have finally put the Yankees to bed. They have four series remaining this season out of 52, and after Round 48 they’re back on their stool in their corner, trying once more to...

The New York Yankees are still kicking

Isn’t it amazing what one win can do for a team? On Wednesday morning, the Yankees were losers of four straight and hanging by a tattered thread in the AL Wild Card race. 24 hours later, after a rousing come-from-behind win on Wednesday night, they have one hand back on the shelf of the cliff and are ready to thrust the second one up there as well. Alfonso Soriano delivered one...

John Sterling botches Alex Rodriguez home run call (Audio)

New York Yankees broadcaster John Sterling scripts his home run calls. Anyone who has listened to games that are broadcast on WFAN could tell you that. For that reason, his screw-ups have a tendency to become magnified. Sterling gave us a perfect example of that on Tuesday night when he mistakenly thought that Alex Rodriguez […]

Dickey and the Blue Jays, they will try to rebound this evening with Phil Hughes on the mound. Check out a full preview of the game here.

Should the Yankees Bench C.C. Sabathia?

The New York Yankees currently find themselves in a situation that has been pretty foreign to them over the past 20 years or so: fighting for a playoff spot.  Sitting 2.5 games out of the second AL Wild Card spot entering play on Thursday night, the Yanks can actually hold their heads high being in this position when one considers all that they've had to overcome this year...

Yankees Game 151: No offense, Andy lost

(Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images) New York Yankees – Toronto Blue Jays   Andy Pettitte wishes he could have back one pitch in tonight’s 2-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. The Yankees had to deal with knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey in the series opener. After getting the first two outs, Robinson Cano hit a line drive for the first hit. Alfonso Soriano would hit a double down the...

Mariano Rivera Now Owner of Custom Bike, Gold Record as MLB Teams Add to Collection of Retirement Gifts (Photos)

It’s not often that players get to retire on their own terms, but after having his 2012 season cut short due to injury, Mariano Rivera is retiring at the end of his 2013 campaign. The very near future Hall of Famer is widely regarded as one of the best closers to ever play the position and unlike some other famous names like Trevor Hoffman and Billy Wagner, Rivera has had...

Yankees' Austin Romine scratched as concussion lingers

The New York Yankees were hoping to get catcher Austin Romine back from a concussion last night. While his name was penciled into the original lineup, Romine was scratched prior to the start of the game as he continues to deal with the effects of his concussion, according to Chris Toman of MLB.com. It appears that this was a mix-up between manager Joe Girardi and the Yankees...

Preview: Yankees @ Blue Jays (9/17/13)

After getting swept by the Red Sox over the weekend, the Yankees playoffs hopes are fading faster than the old rickety bodies that make up the roster. Andy Pettitte (10-9, 4.04 ERA) gets the ball first against the knuckle baller R.A. Dickey (12-12, 4.36 ERA.) Pettitte has been the Yanks most reliable starter as of late. In his past six starts, the oldest starter in baseball is 3...
