Dewayne Wise Should Have Admitted Muffed Catch and Found Better Way to Cheat at Baseball

Baseball is as much a sport of gamesmanship and guile as it is skill and ability, but the sport has long had a line between plucky strategy and just plain cheating. Dewayne Wise crossed that line Tuesday night. Wise, a journeyman who plays for the Yankees about as often as the bench coach, was in left field when a foul ball from Indians third baseman Jack Hannahan looped toward the...

New York Yankees: Conquering injuries

Before the Yankees completed a 3-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians yesterday the news broke that ace CC Sabathia was headed for the 15-DL. And if that wasn’t enough to swallow during the 5th inning, veteran southpaw Andy Pettitte took a line drive off his left lower leg; and everyone in Yankee Stadium froze. Pettitte threw just one more pitch; a perfect strike but the 40-year...

Derek Jeter gets hit by pitch in slo-mo

During Saturday afternoon's sweltering matinee in Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter turned to avoid getting hit in the jewels by an inside pitch and— when replayed in slow-motion— it kind of looks like he was doing the Watusi or some other dance from the '60's. Whether or not Jake Peavy's fifth-inning throw was intentional, Jeter just shook it a little more and took...

Jeter passes Ripken for 13th on career hits list

Derek Jeter hit a leadoff double in the first inning Friday night for his 3,185th hit, moving past Cal Ripken Jr. for 13th place on the career list. The 38-year-old Jeter grew up watching the former Baltimore shortstop and has often been likened to the Hall of Famer, playing the same position and spending his entire time with one team. Right after the milestone hit against the...

Jeter passes Ripken to move into 13th place in hits

Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's first-inning double in Friday's 14-7 loss to the White Sox was his 3,185th career hit, moving him past Cal Ripken Jr. into 13th place on baseball's all-time hits list. Hall of Famer Nap Lajoie is next at 3,252. "Congratulations to Derek on passing me on the all-time hits list," Ripken said in a statement released by the...

Column: Baseball survives without instant replay

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist This wasn't Little League, so Dewayne Wise wasn't about to fess up. Sportsmanship only goes so far when you're wearing pinstripes and playing in Yankee Stadium. Wise sold the third base umpire just by diving into the stands to catch a foul ball. For good measure, he held his glove in the air in triumph and gave...

MLB: Jeter ties Ripken on hits list

MLB Derek Jeter laced a single up the middle in the seventh inning Thursday, and entered the atmosphere of one of his boyhood idols, Cal Ripken Jr. The Yankees' captain tied the Orioles legend for 13th place on baseball's all-time hit list, with 3,184 hits. Jeter's next target is Nap Lajoie at 3,252. The 38-year-old could challenge the 4,000-hit mark before his...

Celebs ring in Jeter's birthday

Injuries sidelining Yankee stars Andy Pettitte and CC Sabathia didn't dampen Derek Jeter's 38th birthday celebration in New York. The Yankee captain was joined by teammates Curtis Granderson and Andruw Jones at Southern Hospitality in Hell's Kitchen on Wednesday night. "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, the Knicks' Carmelo Anthony and rap mogul Sean Combs...

Giancarlo Stanton to Participate in Home Run Derby at Kauffman Stadium

Giancarlo Stanton has quickly evolved into one of the game's premier power hitters, and he'll have a chance to show off his talent on the big stage in July. Stanton has accepted an invitation to participate in this year's Home Run Derby at Kauffman Stadium, joining captains Matt Kemp and Robinson Cano as participants already selected. Stanton, who hit 34 home runs last...

Sabathia, Pettitte Latest Victims of ALE Injury Bug

Pitchers get hurt all the time, but I think we can all agree that CC Sabathia was on the short list of guys who we would expect to make every start in a given season. He’s been a workhorse of the first order for the last decade, but yesterday a twinge in his left groin sent him to the disabled list for the third time in his career and first time since 2006. The Yankees insist that...

Jimenez, Indians fall short to Yankees

NEW YORK (AP) -- Andy Pettitte broke his ankle on the same day the Yankees put CC Sabathia on the disabled list, and Robinson Cano hit a go-ahead homer to help New York beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 Wednesday for a three-game sweep. The Yankees have to face at least two starts without Sabathia and at least six weeks without Pettitte, who fractured a bone in his ankle in the fifth...

White Sox rally to beat Yankees

Addison Reed knew Yankee Stadium's reputation for swallowing up easy flys for home runs. He also knew Derek Jeter had a knack for coming through in the clutch. So when Jeter sent a sharp liner to right field, the White Sox closer hoped the ball would stay in the park and that Alex Rios would have space to make the catch. Rios did, with no room to spare. Rios banged into the...
