Yankees star Alex Rodriguez may currently be on in the injured list but he’s still handling business although it’s in the real estate forum. Rodriguez has but his 20,000 sq. foot Miami mansion on the market. The Yankess slugger purchased the property in 2010 while still in the construction phase. Rodriguez is asking for $38 [...]

From Dan Martin:
Mariano Rivera chose not to talk with reporters after his long-toss session before last night’s 8-2 victory over the Rangers, but his appearance on the field at Yankee Stadium said a lot about how far he already has come in his rehab from surgery to repair his torn right ACL.
Nevertheless, the Yankees’ stance on the closer’s future for 2012 remains unchanged...
Ichiro Suzuki has now played 19 games for Bronx Bruises. He appeareth unto us batting .261 - 70 points below his career average. We in the Yankiverse yearned to believe that Gotham would envigorate him - transform him into the player he was five years ago. Thus far, the bump is four points. As a Yankee, he's hitting .265.That's OK. He's batting ninth. Three days...
With Alex Rodriguez on the DL, Eric Chavez has filled the void by outshining the former star in front of him.
When a key position player player goes down with an injury, it usually sends managers scrambling to fill the void immediately, so they seek help from their bench, farm system, or possible trades. Replacing a high caliber player isn’t always the easiest task and the same...
Right-hander Derek Lowe signed with the Yankees and is expected to join the team and be available out of the bullpen Monday night.

However, he was 0-3 record with a 15.88 ERA in his final three starts before...
Texas Rangers 2 — New York Yankees 8
In a game of the top two offenses, Nick Swisher’s slam highlights a 8-2 win over the Texas Rangers.
David Phelps started in place of ace CC Sabathia and pitched a solid 5 innings in just his 4th start of the season. Against one of the best offenses in the game, Phelps gave up 2 runs on 6 hits while striking out 3 and walking 1. His...
The Yankees signed Derek Lowe to a major league contract on Monday and said they planned to use the right-hander in the bullpen.
Lowe, a 39-year-old sinkerballer, has spent time as a reliever, but mostly has pitched in the rotation for various teams, most recently the Indians. Cleveland designated him for assignment on Aug. 2 and released him on Friday.
Lowe has a 4.01 ERA in 655...
The New York Yankees are a very talented team. When you spend more money than anyone else on an annual basis, your team is generally going to be as talented as any other roster. Well, that is unless you are the Boston Red Sox.
Clearly, spending as much as any other team does not always work. The Red Sox are living proof of that fact.
But as good as the Yankees are once...

Yankees Acquire Derek Lowe
The New York Yankees wasted no time finding another arm to pitch while C.C Sabathia is on the DL with elbow inflammation acquiring the 39 year old Derek Lowe.
Lowe was pitching for the Cleveland Indians before being designated for assignment on Saturday. He wasn’t pitching very well for the Indians in their rotation going 8-10 with...

In the opener of a four-game series between the teams...
Yesterday, the Yankees signed Derek Lowe, D-Lowe, a flesh-and-blood reminder of the fourth worst ***** ass choke in known human history, (after Goliath v. David, Aztec Nation v. Cortez, Spanish Armada v. Whomever, and tied with Hootie and Blowfish's second album; this is outlined extensively in my book, BTW.) It happened on our watch. It can never be erased from memory.We signed...

Since the day he was drafted 3rd overall in 2010, I have been a fan of Orioles top prospect Manny Machado. Roughly one year ago I scouted him intensely as he made his way through the minor leagues. What I saw was a player that showed above average power and good speed that...
