The Oakland A’s proved that money doesn’t always buy an owner a winning baseball team. The A’s just complete the sweep of the New York Yankees, yes you read that right. The A’s a team with a payroll of $ 55,372,500 dollars took three games in a row from the New York Yankees who have a payroll of $ 197,962,289 dollars. The A’ beat the Yankees 5-4 this afternoon after winning the three previous games all by one run. Thursday they won 4-3, Friday the A’s won game two 3-2 and Saturday the Oakland A’s won 2-1.
The A’s completed the sweep of the team with the largest payroll in M.L.B. today with a great effort by their starting pitcher Bartolo Colon who only gave up 4 runs on 8 hits and was able to give Oakland 6-2/3′s innings to help get the A’s the sweep. Oakland’s offense also came through and showed this team has a lot of heart. The A’s were down early 4-0 after four innings. They couldn’t get any runs from Yankees starter CC Sabathia who looked UN-hittable until the fifth inning.

The team with the best record in baseball, the New York Yankees didn’t just get swept by the Oakland Athletics, they got beat.
A very real and determined Athletics burned the Bombers over the weekend winning four one-run games.

In a stunning move, the New York Yankees acquired longtime Seattle Mariner Ichiro Suzuki for two players.
The trade became official at 6:30 PM just before the Yankees series against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field.
The Yankees sent pitchers D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar to the Mariners and the Yankees have agreed to pay just over $2 million of Ichiro's salary. Ichiro...
Ichiro Suzuki has been one of the best players in all of baseball for over a decade. And now the Japanese superstar appears headed for the winning tradition of the New York Yankees. Suzuki has been dealt to the Yankees in exchange for a pair of relievers, according to Jack Curry who covers the Yankees for YES. The relievers in the deal, D.J. Mitchell and Danny Farquhar, are both...
The Post Standard (Syracuse, NY) July 17, 2012 Tuesday To the Editor:I just returned home from the Syracuse Chiefs vs. Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees game.

Ichiro Suzuki is now with the New York Yankees. Yup, the Bronx Bombers strike again and land another sure-shot Hall of Fame player in an attempt to bring another World Series trophy to the pinstriped nation. According to Jack Curry of the Yes Network, the Yankees have acquired Ichiro Suzuki for D.J. Mitchell and Danny...
Apparently, the Yankees and Mariners both have ninjas for GMs, because the trade of Ichiro Suzuki to New York seemed to come out of nowhere. Ichiro still has a big name and a grand track record, but is he anything more than a defensive whiz at this point and can his move from spacious Safeco to the short porch in Yankee Stadium help his fantasy value?
Ichiro has done next to nothing...
The New York Yankees stunned the baseball world -- and, indeed, the world -- Monday by acquiring Japanese icon Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners.
Ichiro became an instant sensation when he arrived in the United States in 2001, winning the Most Valuable Player and Rookie of the Year awards. But now the 38-year-old outfielder is likely to be a role player with the Yankees.
