BEST OF MAXIM
I hate the L.A. Angels. There, I said it. Every single baseball fan has a team they will bleed for, and a team they wouldn’t mind seeing be destroyed. I`m an Oakland Athletics fan, and I hope that every single Angels player contracts a severe case of tonsillitis that gets infected and is incurable. Obviously, I am not being serious nor am I sincere about such a wish. I am joking...
Let’s be honest here. If the Yankees could be rid of Alex Rodriguez and his contract, they’d pull the trigger on such a deal in a second. Of course, interest had waned in the third baseman — even if the Yankees were to pick up significant portions of Rodriguez’s contract — due to his overall decline.
However, at least one franchise wanted Rodriguez on their team this past...
David Phelps takes the mound in hopes of winning the series against Felix Hernandez and the Mariners. Phelps looks to continue his winning ways after allowing just one hit over six shutout innings last Tuesday against the Indians.

The Yankees will try to start another winning streak after seeing their four-game streak snapped last night. Andy Pettitte will take the mound in his second start after coming off of the disabled list. Robinson Cano went hitless last night, and has struggled mightily in his last handful of games. He will try to get things going against the Mariners’ Joe Saunders. Check out...
We are 6-1 - (an .857, winning pct., baby!) - since last week's International Juju Intervention, in which millions of fans - (maybe billions; we're beasts in China) - charged their TVs, bombarding the team with subatomic Rizzutonic particles, the Higgs bosons of baseball.But rather than taking credit, let's consider other possible reasons behind the Yankee resurgence...

New York Yankees 1 — Seattle Mariners 4
Kuroda’s struggle to finish the fourth is big in tonight’s 4-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners.
For the Mariners, Jeremy Bonderman would make his second start of the season. A leadoff double by Brett Gardner and a walk of Robinson...
A high school pitcher taken by the New York Yankees in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft is apologizing for comments that barbed the team.
Ian Clarkin was picked Thursday night. Right after being chosen, MLB Network showed a video in which the 18-year-old from California said he ''cannot stand'' the Yankees.
On a conference call Friday, Clarkin...
After winning three of four games vs. the Mariners in Seattle over the weekend, the New York Yankees get a well deserved day off before starting a three game set down in Oakland against the Athletics.

The A’s are in a Moneyball year, meaning that it is a season when this team is good.
Actually, the A’s were good last year too...
In a move that totally doesn’t make Arod look guilty, it’s been reported that he’s hired the same attorney who helped overturn Ryan Braun’s drug suspension.
David Cornwell has joined Arod’s ’Justice League’ of high powered lawyers, along with Jay Reisinger. The news was reported anonymously by someone with inside knowledge of the hiring, no public announcement...
New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte allowed three hits over 7 1-3 innings to earn his 250th career victory, leading the Yankees to a 3-1 win over the Seattle Mariners and in doing so becomes the 47th pitcher in major league history to reach that win total.For Pettitte the day was special for more than just his pitching.Pettitte’s son Josh Pettitte, a right-hand...
Chris Stewart had a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning and David Phelps matched efforts with Felix Hernandez for six innings to help the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 on Sunday.
Ichiro Suzuki drew a walk from Yoervis Medina (1-2) to open the ninth. Jayson Nix sacrificed him to second. Then with two outs, Stewart bounced a grounder to through the left side...
40 and Winning
Today, Andy Pettite had a day for the ages: he picked up his 250th career win on the same day that the team that has defined his career, the New York Yankees, drafted his son, Josh. By getting his team past the Mariners, Pettite raised his season record to 5-3, lowered his ERA to 3.82 and his WHIP to 1.26... which is to say, more or less his career levels. Now, it...
