Baseball players know that the occasional beaning is all a part of the game. Except that normally you don’t expect to get nailed in the head by one of your own teammates, which is exactly what happened to Yankees reliever Cody Eppley during the sixth inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Tigers.
Eppley wasn’t paying attention to the infielders throwing the ball around...
Model Kate Upton — whose career skyrocketed ever since she was named the cover girl for 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition — has become America’s sex symbol. She’s the girl we all want to live next door to.
The model and budding actress, who is reportedly dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, has been channeling another blond bombshell in recent photo shoots...

Whoever said that AJ Burnett couldn’t pitch should be putting their foot back in their mouth, as he could very well win the NL CY Young this season.
I have always been a Burnett fan since his days with the Florida Marlins; so I was thrilled when the Yankees signed him in 2009 and went on to win the World Series that season.
Burnett had his...
Chris Stewart went 2 for 4 in the Yankees’ win over the Detroit Tigers today, which begs the question, “should Stewart start seeing more playing time over the under achieving Russell Martin?”
As you may figure, it took the New York Yankees only a couple of weeks to make a Japanese-inspired dish for newly-acquired outfielder Ichiro Suzuki.

Last night, we dodged a bullet. A hollow point. Casey McGehee - the newly shaven firstbaseman who is holding third for us until Arod's hand can once again grip a lobster fork - butchered a DP grounder, which nearly lead to a late inning collapse of Biblical proportions. Or at least the stuff of literary domain. ("That aint my style," said Casey. "E-5,"...
The Yankees looked pretty bad against the Tigers on Monday night, striking out 14 times and mustering no earned runs against Detroit's Justin Verlander. But don't give the reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner all of the credit in this one. The Yankees may have been a little distracted coming in. Derek Jeter seemed reticent to head to batting practice Monday. His...

DETROIT (AP) -- Curtis Granderson snapped out of a short slump by hitting his 30th homer and driving four runs, helping the New York Yankees beat Detroit Tigers 12-8 Wednesday night and ending the Tigers' six-game winning streak.
Down 7-0, the Tigers chased CC Sabathia and closed to 8-7 in the seventh inning.
The AL East-leading Yankees, who had lost 12 of their previous 18...
Mark Teixeira and Eric Chavez hit solo home runs on consecutive pitches in the eighth inning that put New York ahead, and the Yankees held on to beat the Detroit Tigers 4-3 Thursday.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi was ejected and threw his hat during a demonstrative argument with third base umpire Tim Welke after a fair-or-foul call in the fifth inning.

Last night, as the Yankees moved closer to losing their second straight game to the Detroit Tigers, a thought popped into my head that I am sure would be considered almost blasphemous had a Yankee fan known I was thinking it. (Actually, I tweeted it, but it seems to have gone unnoticed.) Here's the thought:Why even bother trying to make the playoffs if you're always going...
