Video: Must See Catch During Batting Practice
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
With Andruw Jones and the recent acquisition of Ichiro Suzuki, the Yankees can boast something that no other team can; having two outfielders with 10 Gold Gloves apiece. However, even though they have the same amount of hardware, the two couldn’t be further apart in their defensive ability.
Veteran outfielder Ichiro Suzuki showed off his outfield skills on Sunday night, catching a pop fly behind his back during batting practice. The ten-time All-Star and former rookie of the year joined the Yankees last week after a 11 year hall of fame career with the Mariners.
Ichiro is batting .261 with the Yankees, with two runs scored and two stolen bases in six games.

The Yankees are playing like bent, old structures.With no hope for fiscal stimulus, the strained facilities begin to break. A-Rod was broken by Seattle, and we did not even retaliate.The recent collapse against the red socks proves that our line-up is not able to compete, even against the downtrodden and horrible.We are, at best, shaking in the wind. At worst, we are simply broken...

Josh Beckett – July 23, 2008
The heart-stopping days where watching a Yankees-Red Soxgame was about the best thing since sliced bread now seem like a distant memory even though the
rivalry has only been stale for a few years.
Long gone are those infamous bench-clearing brawls, and 5-hour games that you never wanted to end.
Maybe it is not the end to the greatest rivalry in sports...
In need of infield reinforcement with Alex Rodriguez sidelined due to a broken left hand and Mark Teixeira nursing a sore left wrist, the New York Yankees acquired Casey McGehee from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for reliever Chad Qualls. The Yankees will replace Qualls in the bullpen by recalling Joba Chamberlain from his rehab assignment, general manager Brian Cashman said...
The Yankees obtained third baseman Casey McGehee from Pittsburgh for reliever Chad Qualls on Tuesday, giving them a right-handed batter to plug in while Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira recuperate from hand injuries.
McGehee, 29, is hitting .230 with eight homers and 35 RBI in almost 300 plate appearances. The 33-year-old Qualls was acquired by New York from Philadelphia on July...
Pedro Ciriaco blooped an RBI single in the 10th inning for his latest big hit against the New York Yankees, and the Boston Red Sox squeaked out a 3-2 victory Sunday night moments after manager Bobby Valentine was ejected.
Felix Doubront held the Yankees scoreless until Russell Martin homered leading off the seventh inning. Martin also hit a tying single with two outs in the eighth...
NEW YORK -- For the second night in a row, the Boston Red Sox blew an eighth-inning lead against the rival New York Yankees, only to win the game on a hit by Pedro Ciriaco in their final at-bat. On Sunday, it was a soft single to right with one out in the 10th inning, giving the Red Sox a 3-2 victory in the Yankees' first extra-inning home game this season. The hit capped...
The Pittsburgh Pirates today acquired right-handed pitcher Chad Qualls from the New York Yankees
in exchange for infielder Casey McGehee and cash considerations.
After acquiring Gaby Sanchez earlier in the afternoon, the Pirates got one more deal in before the deadline. They sent Casey McGehee to the Yankees for relief pitcher Chad Qualls.
The acquisition of Sanchez made McGehee expendable, which was pretty much the reason for the move. Qualls isn’t very good, and will probably become the last man out of the bullpen.
More on this (and the...
