One thing to know about Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain: he really doesn't like it when he gets shushed, even by the greatest closer of all-time.
DEFENDING THE NAME
Mickey Mantle’s family issued a statement and retained a law firm on Monday to dispute the allegation that the Hall of Famer used a corked bat when he played.
Last night in Scranton, the eternal super-prospect Dellin Betances emerged from the bullpen and threw two scoreless innings, peaked at 97 on the radar, and walked only one batter. Only one. Been a long time since an appearance by Dellin Betances only produced one base on balls.That's because Dellin didn't start. But maybe he started his second life. The first one died from...
Not many MLB players can laugh off a season-ending ACL injury, but Mariano Rivera isn’t like most baseball players.
Rivera’s torn ACL occurred at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City last year when the legendary closer was shagging fly balls. The Yankees returned to KC on Friday and New York bullpen coach Mike Harkey had some fun by drawing a Rivera-shaped chalk outline on the warning...
It seems like New York Yankees pitchers’ Mariano Rivera and Joba Chamberlain have made nice and their short lived ‘feud’ is over. The Yankees PR department pulled off a great PR move by Tweeting out a photo of the two pitchers hugging in the clubhouse on Sunday morning singling that all is well.
It was reported that the two got into a tiff on Saturday prior to the Yankees game...
The New York Yankees are currently in first place in the AL East with the second-best record in all of baseball, so as soon as they have that best record in baseball status locked up – and maybe toss in a few highway robbery trades as well – all will be well in the universe, according to Yankees fans. One of the luxuries of being “business as usual” for baseball’s highest...
Reportedly, before the Yankees game against the Royals on Saturday, Joba Chamberlain and Mariano Rivera exchanged words in the clubhouse. Apparently Rivera was having trouble hearing the media’s questions because Chamberlain was speaking to loud to his family. Rivera said “Joba! Yo! Bro! Shhh. Stop it.”
Joba was having none of that from Rivera. Chamberlain responded...
After notching his 500th career win last night as a manager, Joe Girardi and the Yankees look to take game two of a three game set against the Royals tonight. Andy Pettitte, who has cooled off since his hot start, gets the ball for New York against former Ray James Shields. Look for Robinson Cano to have a good game, as he has absolutely owned Shields throughout his career. In 75...
The New York Yankees have yet another entry to the disabled
list. On Sunday, May 12, the Yankees placed infielder Edwin Nunez on the 15-day
disabled list due to tightness in his rib cage. Nunez last played on May 5, so
he is eligible to return to the lineup on May 20. Indications are that Nunez
should return by then.
Hoch reported that Nunez strained...
There wasn't enough time for the Yankees to tour the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or do much else on their short layover before going home.
So during a quick stop in Cleveland, they went to Progressive Field and split a doubleheader that wasn't on the schedule when the season started.
Vidal Nuno pitched five innings of three-hit ball to win his first major league start and...

New York Yankees 0 — Cleveland Indians 1
David Phelps made one bad pitch in today’s 1-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians. The first game of a doubleheader today.
David Phelps got the nod for the first game today to makeup rained out games earlier this season. On a 2-2 pitch...
The chalk outline is still there!!!
With Pukilis on the 60 -180 day DL, I have been able to watch Yankee games again.Today, game one in Cleveland, I saw what might be the worst line-up ever slated by the Yankees. This is the history making component of the story.It was clear from the outset, that no one was going to get more than an occasional bunt single. And we didn't.Cano is tired. He swung at the first...
