New York Yankees
OAKLAND -- It wasn't a walk-off, but Brandon Inge's solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning powered the Oakland A's to their third consecutive one-run victory over the New York Yankees, a 2-1 triumph Saturday. It pushed the A's MLB-best July record to 13-2. Yankees starting pitcher Phil Hughes was pulled from the game after 7 2/3 innings. He allowed four hits -- two of which were knocked out of the park -- issued two walks and struck out six. His counterpart, rookie right-hander Jarrod Parker, was even better, with a final line of eight innings, five hits, one earned run, one walk and five strikeouts. The rookie gave way to another first-year hurler as Sean Doolittle entered in the top of the ninth inning to attempt his first career save. After a leadoff single by Alex Rodriguez, Doolittle struck out Robinson Cano, Mark Teixeira and Andruw Jones to achieve his first career save in convincing fashion. Curtis Granderson led off the sixth inning by dr...

The New York Yankees have been without Brett Gardnerin left field all but nine games this season, and the impact could have been catastrophic but it hasn’t been.

The Yankees are no doubt slower sans the speedy Gardner, as the Yankees rank 24th in steals with 50 on the season, skipper Joe Girardi and GM Brian Cashman utilization of a left fielder...
OAKLAND, Calif. -- When rookie starting pitcher Jarrod Parker walked off the mound after eight innings of one-run ball against the New York Yankees in line for no decision, Oakland A's third baseman Brandon Inge had a message for him. "Inge, he told me," Parker explained. "He said, 'I'm gonna get you one.' And he did. That's pretty sweet that...

The team with the best record in baseball, the New York Yankees didn’t just get swept by the Oakland Athletics, they got beat.
A very real and determined Athletics burned the Bombers over the weekend winning four one-run games.
Billy Beane might have his best Moneyball team yet, as this group is made up of a bunch of other ball clubs leftovers...

Not long ago, CC was returning, Brett Gardner was healing, Joba was throwing well, Arod was heating up, and our only problem was securing tickets for the upcoming midnight premier of "The Dark Knight Rises." We were fat, dumb and winning. The last thing anyone pondered was having to suddenly drain our farm system for a Shane Victorino or a Justin Upton, some outfielding...
The Yankees aren't messing around. With Brett Gardner likely out for the remainder of the season, the Bronx Bombers appear to be in search of an outfielder, and they're "in on everybody" in advance of the July 31 trade deadline, according to SI.com. The Yankees have reportedly checked in on Justin Upton, Shane Victorino, Denard Span and presumably others. Upton...
The Oakland Athletics are a ½-game out in the wild-card race. They lead the American League in ERA. Yet their best pitcher, in terms of sheer performance, is at Triple A.
Doesn't quite make sense.
So, don’t be surprised if the Athletics try to figure out a way to squeeze right-hander Daniel Straily into their rotation soon.
Straily, 23, is a combined 6-6 with a 2.64...
Dim the mood lights. Cue the Moby soundtrack. Push the potato snug into the tailpipe, and let's get comfy. Nobody wants to hear us whinnying when nine eight seven games up. But today, all that stands between hope and a humiliating four-game sweep is Hiroki Kuroda, and we've rolled enough of his dice to not plan the victory party in advance. (Which is bad juju, BTW...
Why would anyone worry about such a thing? You'd be a fool to worry. The Yankees are too far ahead to blow the lead. And we have too many great players. There's no need to worry. None at all. And I'm not worried. Not one bit. I'm not even thinking about the fact that I'm not worried. It's not worth wasting time thinking about. So I'm not. Worried, that...
These images show how the Colorado Rockies honored the victims of the horrific shooting in an Aurora, Colo., movie theater that left 12 dead and injured 58 others.
There was a moment of silence before game against the Padres at Petco Park in San Diego. Rockies players wore the date “7-20” under their eyes and wore purple jerseys and black wristbands.
All baseball players wish they could make an immediate impact when joining the big league club for the first time. For some the game does pan out that way. For Adam Warren, his start was quite the opposite. Yet the 24-year-old’s mood was not dampened.
OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics have won so many games in walk-off fashion they almost expect it of themselves when a game is tied in the late innings. And once again the Athletics saved their best for last on Sunday after falling behind 4-0 early in the game. The hero of the game was Coco Crisp, whose game-winning single in the bottom of the 12th lifted Oakland to a...
In the hopes of being able to talk about something positive, I waited until the end of yesterday's series finale in Oakland to complete this episode of the podcast. Of course, that positive news never came. The show is hopeful to some extent, as I interviewed my guest, Mike Pinto of "Mike's Entertainment and Sports Show," before the game began. Topics include Brett...
