Watching the New York Yankees lose a brutal 18-inning game, 3-2 to Oakland last night made my eyes bleed.

Not only did the Yankees lose to the A’s with Mariano Rivera on the bump, they got swept in the series.
It was painful, sad and scary all at the same time for me, as a Yankees fan to swallow.
The issue is not secret...
Getty ImagesDon't look now, but Jacoby Ellsbury's 30 stolen bases have him tied for the major-league lead. The Padres' Evereth Cabrera (who, by the way, has been linked to the Florida PED clinic) also has 30 thefts this year. Last night, Ellsbury's streak of 18 consecutive steals was broken by Baltimore's Matt Wieters—but his other streak (steals in six consecutive...

Earlier we learned that New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter has been cleared for all baseball-related activities. Here are a few
additional updates on ailing Yankees players Francisco Cervelli and Eduardo Nunez.
Nunez has been battling an oblique injury, and yesterday
manager Joe Girardi told reporters that the infielder is continuing to take dry
swings at the team’s...

New York Yankees 6 — Los Angeles Angels 5
Every run the Yankees scored today was valuable in today’s 6-5 win over the Los Angeles Angels. This win ends a five-game losing streak.
In four of the last five games, the Yankees would only manage...
Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira has no new tears in the tendon sheath around his inflamed right wrist.
Teixeira got a cortisone shot Sunday. New York manager Joe Girardi says he will be re-evaluated next week.
Teixeira left the Yankees' 6-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday in the fourth inning. The Yankees sent him back to New York for evaluation on his problematic...
Kyle Roller plays a position currently blocked by two different players for his Major League parent club, the New York Yankees.He is already 25-years-old and not considered a top 20 prospect in his own minor league system. As an eighth round pick for New York in 2010, he’s not considered an elite talent.Still, for his current franchise with an anemic offense and little production...
Boston Red Sox first baseman Mike Napoli exited last night’s
game against the Baltimore Orioles due to illness. Manager John Farrell told
Evan Drellich of Mass Live that it was a lot of general nausea that Napoli
experienced, adding that the slugger is expected back in Boston’s lineup today.
"General illness, felt a lot of nausea after the
double, heavy humidity...
Ryan Dempster gave the Red Sox everything they needed — except for a win.
Dempster, whose season has been a mixed bag thus far, allowed just two runs, and, more importantly, pitched into the eighth inning in a 2-0 loss to the Orioles on Friday. He was ultimately outpitched by Chris Tillman and three others in the losing effort, but we shouldn’t lose sight of his start’s importance...
Clay Buchholz’s Sunday start against the Baltimore Orioles has been in question since the right-hander exited his last appearance early due to a neck injury. Yesterday, the Boston Red Sox opted to continue playing it
safe with Buchholz, as manager John Farrell told reporters – including JeffSeidel and Teddy Cahill of MLB.com – that the right-hander’s next start would
The trade deadline looms.Cashman and his crew of misguided staffers can yet build a fantasy that the Yankees can still win this thing. Now. This year. MO's last season.They can pony up any and all prospects ( I hesitate to name any, because losing Yankee minor league position players is not a big risk ), including some of the players ( mostly pitchers ) who have had a taste...
Jose Iglesias has been used primarily at third base during his most recent major league call-up, but he’ll get the start at his natural position, shortstop, when the Red Sox take on the Orioles in Baltimore on Friday.
Iglesias — promoted from Pawtucket when Will Middlebrooks went on the disabled list in late May — has performed well enough to merit an extended stint with the...
A much-needed win Saturday sets up the opportunity for a series split and a chance to leave Baltimore with the largest lead in the AL East for the Red Sox this season. And on the mound is Jon Lester. Tough to beat that, right?
The Boston Red Sox (42-28) go into today’s game against the Baltimore Orioles (39-30) looking to leave with a 3.5-game...
Extra-inning games wear down all ballplayers, but none feel the impact of free baseball quite like catchers.
The Red Sox have gone deep into extras twice this week, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia was behind the plate for all 27 innings. Manager John Farrell gave Salty the night off Friday in Baltimore, and NESN’s Jenny Dell caught up with the catcher to talk the effect playing five...
