If there is one thing that every baseball player wants other than a World Series trophy, it is to be remembered as one of the greats; to have their name mentioned in the same breath as legendary ball players such as Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano already has a pair of World Series rings from

When the Yankees traded for Alfonso Soriano, they were hoping to add a little right-handed pop to the middle of the lineup. At 37 years old and with his best baseball behind him, Sori was looked at as only a slight upgrade for a struggling Yankee offense.
Flash forward three weeks later. He’s etched his name in the record books.

Derek Jeter was busy before the Yankees’ 11-3 win over the Angels Wednesday night but manager Joe Girardi said there wasn’t a definitive plan for the shortstop who is on the disabled list with a strained right calf.
Jeter would “take BP [Wednesday] and go to Tampa when we go to Boston’’ said Girardi whose club leaves for Boston tonight and opens a three-game series against...
We knew the news that Derek Jeter possibly being engaged would lead to pandemonium in New York City, but little did I know…
Could New York Yankees legend (and legendary bachelor) Derek Jeter finally be settling down? Girlfriend Hannah Davis was spotted with a fat diamond ring.
CC Sabathia (9-10, 4.73 ERA) hopes to continue to climb out of his recent slump and takes on Jason Vargas (6-4, 3.65 ERA) in game two or four against the Angels. After allowing 27 combined runs over his previous four starts, Sabathia bounced back (somewhat) Wednesday against the White Sox. Although the Yankees lost the game, Sabathia gave up just three runs in 7 1/3 innings...
Members of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez’s inner circle obtained and leaked documents to the media that implicated Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun as well as his Yankees teammate Francisco Cervelli, reports “60 Minutes.” Just days after the Miami New Times published redacted documents
Sportress of Blogitude passes along this odd, 3-D Derek Jeter mask spotted last night at the Yankees game. Reportedly one wears it and, Halloween III style, it can't be removed while the rest of the body ages and decays rapidly.
Almost as hypnotic as candy cotton eating guy.

Alfonso Soriano homered twice for the second straight night and
drove in a career-high seven runs, giving him a staggering 13 RBIs
in two games while powering the suddenly potent New York Yankees to
an 11-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday.
Andy Pettitte changed his ways.
Alfonso Soriano just keeps going.
The Yankees outfielder had three hits and drove in four more runs -- giving him 18 RBIs in his last four games -- and Pettitte avoided his recent first-inning troubles to lead New York to a 10-3 victory over the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox on Friday night.
Soriano, who was traded to New York from the Chicago...
Derek Jeter may or may not be engaged to Hannah Davis, who some are calling "the new Kate Upton," which makes Kate Upton "the old Kate Upton," which is sad.Jeet's old enough to be - at least in parts of Florida - her father.Listen: The Captain can do whatever The Captain wants.

Yes, it really did happen, folks. The Yankees scored 14 runs last night, on 19 hits.I don't even remember the last time this team put on such a potent display of offense. It was great to see and, after so many tension-filled, low-scoring contests this season, it was nice to be able to relax during a game.The offensive pieces the Yankees have been missing all season long showed...
Hiroki Kuroda (11-7, 2.33 ERA) continues his run for the Cy Young against John Lackey (7-10, 3.32 ERA) at Fenway. Kuroda’s been brilliant all year, and with CC Sabathia‘s struggles, has been the Yankees’ ace. In his last start against the Angels, he allowed three hits in eight shutout innings. He hasn’t allowed more than three runs in a start since June 30. ”His offspeed...
