With Alex Rodriguez on the DL, Eric Chavez has filled the void by outshining the former star in front of him.
When a key position player player goes down with an injury, it usually sends managers scrambling to fill the void immediately, so they seek help from their bench, farm system, or possible trades. Replacing a high caliber player isn’t always the easiest task and the same...
Texas Rangers 2 — New York Yankees 8
In a game of the top two offenses, Nick Swisher’s slam highlights a 8-2 win over the Texas Rangers.
David Phelps started in place of ace CC Sabathia and pitched a solid 5 innings in just his 4th start of the season. Against one of the best offenses in the game, Phelps gave up 2 runs on 6 hits while striking out 3 and walking 1. His...
The Yankees signed Derek Lowe to a major league contract on Monday and said they planned to use the right-hander in the bullpen.
Lowe, a 39-year-old sinkerballer, has spent time as a reliever, but mostly has pitched in the rotation for various teams, most recently the Indians. Cleveland designated him for assignment on Aug. 2 and released him on Friday.
Lowe has a 4.01 ERA in 655...
You might be thinking to yourself that the name "Jurickson Profar" rings a bell.
Last month, during the lead up to the MLB trade deadline, the Texas Rangers were looking at a number of candidates to strengthen their team for another World Series push. But Texas held up from making any blockbuster deals because the player ever team wanted in return from the...
The Texas Rangers have a catching quandary. On Saturday, Mike Napoli headed to the disabled list with a strained quadriceps that has bothered him off and on for weeks. With very little experienced catching in the minors, the club has turned to Luis Martinez as the backup. Martinez was up for a week in July, but was not given an at-bat. He hit .211 with a .614 OPS in 59 at-bats...
The New York Yankees are a very talented team. When you spend more money than anyone else on an annual basis, your team is generally going to be as talented as any other roster. Well, that is unless you are the Boston Red Sox.
Clearly, spending as much as any other team does not always work. The Red Sox are living proof of that fact.
But as good as the Yankees are once...
After brutal June and July performances, Josh Hamilton has performed well in the first few weeks of August, hitting .320/.382/.580 in 55 trips to the plate. According to both Hamilton and his coaches, the improvement is the direct result of his willingness to finally make adjustments in terms of which pitches to swing at. After months of hacking away at pitches well out of the...
I missed the entire Detroit series (which the Rangers ended up winning) and returned to viewing tonight. I would like to exchange this game for yesterday’s. Or maybe Saturday’s. Yeah, definitely Saturday’s. I want to see Mike Olt’s walk-off single. But no. I didn’t get to see any of that. Instead, I got bad Ryan Dempster and a mostly flat Rangers offense....

Yankees Acquire Derek Lowe
The New York Yankees wasted no time finding another arm to pitch while C.C Sabathia is on the DL with elbow inflammation acquiring the 39 year old Derek Lowe.
Lowe was pitching for the Cleveland Indians before being designated for assignment on Saturday. He wasn’t pitching very well for the Indians in their rotation going 8-10 with...
Hiroki Kuroda pitched a two-hitter and the New York Yankees got
consecutive homers from Nick Swisher and Mark Teixeira in a 3-0
victory over the Texas Rangers on Tuesday night.
Ryan Dempster didn’t want to have an outing like the one the New York Yankees handed him last night. Dempster gave up 9 hits and 8 runs as both the Yankees and the Texas Rangers were trying to get their 68th win. The Yankees would take this game 8-2 and the Rangers will have to look for their 68th win tonight to tie the Yankees at 68-47 on the season. Dempster pitched for 6 innings...

D.J. LeMahieu has four-hit game
Colorado didn’t need home runs to beat up Milwaukee and star rookie Mike Fiers, scoring nine times on Monday.
Fiers entered the game with a dominating 1.80 ERA but allowed eight runs in two innings at Coors Field.
Rookie second baseman D.J. LeMahieu‘s four-hit night led the parade as the Rockies banged out 15 hits.
Rightfielder Eric Young Jr...
