Darnell McDonald is a Yankee no longer. The former Red Sox outfielder, who was claimed off waivers by the New York Yankees after the Sox let him go, has been designated for assignment once again. As a corresponding roster move, the team activated CC Sabathia off the disabled list. In four games with New York, he went hitless while striking out twice in his four plate appearances. McDonald had been batting .214 for Boston before he was designated for assignment the first time this year. The Yankees will have 10 days to trade McDonald, place him on waivers or release...

Darnell McDonald's Dreadlocks & How They Hit Home For Me

As I predicted on the podcast I posted Monday, Darnell McDonald was designated for assignment yesterday to clear a roster spot for CC Sabathia, who had a very successful return to the Yankees rotation last night. As everyone knows, McDonald was claimed off waivers a few weeks ago when the Red Sox DFA'd him. And, as everyone knows, that meant his hair could no longer look like...

Sabathia strong in first start off DL

CC Sabathia carried a shutout into the seventh inning during his sparkling return from the disabled list and the steamrolling New York Yankees got an early three-run homer from Andruw Jones in a 6-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.

New York Yankees: Team details

YANKEE STADIUM 2012 The New York Yankees (57-34) continued their domination yesterday afternoon with a 6-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays, completing a three-game sweep of their AL East rivals. The Jays literally left the Bronx limping, as slugger Jose Bautista was placed on the 15-DL with wrist inflammation; and third baseman Brett Lawrie suffered a right calf contusion (bad bruise...

Podcast Episode 14: Mid-Season Musings

I put this episode together after the Yankees opened the second half of the 2012 season by taking 2 out of 3 against the Angels. Topics include the aftermath of Robinson Cano's horrible Home Run Derby, disappointing facts about Melky Cabrera, my disdain for Paul O'Neill (Yes, you read that right.) and Darnell McDonald's dred locs. I close things out by talking about my...

Votto, Bautista injured; Halladay, Sabathia return

Joey Votto needs knee surgery, and Jose Bautista is out with a wrist injury. Two of baseball's best hitters were sidelined in a matter of hours Monday, one night before a pair of top pitchers are slated to return to the mound. Roy Halladay and CC Sabathia are both set to come off the disabled list Tuesday - and the way things are shaping up this summer, pennant races all over...

Six-alarm fire breaks out near Yankee Stadium

A spectacular fire broke out near Yankee Stadium early Wednesday morning which left 30 firefighters hurt.  The burning Bronx building's rooftop is close enough to the centerfield scoreboard that it wouldn't be hard to see Curtis Granderson run down fly balls during a Yankees game from that vantage point. More than 200 firefighters battled the six-alarm blaze which caused...

Yankees 6, Blue Jays 1

NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees got one of their best players back from the disabled list just as the Toronto Blue Jays put one of theirs on the DL. CC Sabathia returned with one of his best outings of the season, pitching six innings of shutout ball in the Yankees' 6-1 win Tuesday night at Yankee Stadium. While the Blue Jays absorbed their second straight loss to the AL...
