Found August 17, 2013 on Tireball.com:
Signed earlier in the day, Mark Reynolds delivered at the plate for the Yankees on Friday. Reynolds, 30, had gone homeless over the final 22 games he spent with the Cleveland Indians. That was all put to the wayside as Reynolds hit a two-run home run in his first at-bat against Boston starter Felix Doubront. Later in the game Reynolds added an RBI single. While Reynolds may not hit a home run every night but the Yankees will obviously take what they can get at this point. Alfonso Soriano, another mid season acquisition, was 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the game. Even with their heroics the Yankees are currently six games out in the Wild Card race.

Yankees sign Mark Reynolds for remainder of the year

Following a rash of injuries and a poor performance in the standings to date, the New York Yankees are still not throwing in the towel.  They understand they need help at both first base and third base (although Alex Rodriguez has come back and looks like he will stay for the rest of the year).  To accommodate this need, the Yankees have signed recently released corner infielder...

The Yankees are now officially Done. Finished. Over. Kaput. Smoogey. Phlarm.

Yesterday, August 17, 2013—a date which will live in infamy— the United Yankees of America formally ended its reign as a major power in the baseball world.From now on, the best thing that can happen is that we lose. Yes, lose. Today, tomorrow, all next week and all next month. Just lose. (Except on Mariano's Day.) There is no point to winning a game here and there. It won...

Yankees' Derek Jeter out until at least next week

When asked if shortstop Derek Jeter will rejoin the New York Yankees' lineup by Sunday night, manager Joe Girardi told reporters -- including Kieran Darcy of ESPN New York -- that he "wouldn't think so." The skipper also wasn't willing to commit that Jeter will be available in time to be activated next week, as he continues to recover from the calf ailment...

A-Rod denies leaking documents implicating others

‘If I’m going down, so are others’, seems to have been Alex Rodriguez’s frame of mind when he reportedly had his boys purchase documents implicating Brewers slugger Ryan Braun and Yankees teammate Francisco Cervelliand, then had them leaked after of a story came out in the Miami New Times about Rodriguez’s own PED misdeeds.

A-Rod wants to focus on baseball

Alex Rodriguez says he's cutting off all non-baseball talk after a wild weekend of accusations and retaliations on and off the field. Rodriguez is not in the New York Yankees' lineup Wednesday night, a day after playing both games of a doubleheader.

A-Rod Says He’s Not a Snitch; Could MLB Be Leaking False Info?

Alex Rodgriguez and Bud Selig aren’t the most trustworthy individuals, so who knows who is telling the truth, but it is in MLB’s best interest to make A-Rod look as bad as possible. Someone is lying and honestly I don’t know who. Alex Rodriguez on Friday strongly denied a report that he implicated fellow players, including New York Yankees teammate Francisco Cervelli, as...

Mark Reynolds: Fresh meat from the scrap heap, as we limp to Boston Market

The Retrieval Empire keeps churning. We have signed Mark Reynolds, who used to kill us, when he didn't strike out. Unfortunately, he fans enough to make Curtis Granderson resemble Bobby Richardson.  It's beyond my imaginative capabilities to foresee Reynolds doing anything but homering or striking out - and not in equal measures. But we have reached the Bobby McGee definition...

Mike Napoli Out of Lineup as Red Sox Face Yankees Ace Hiroki Kuroda on Dustin Pedroia’s Birthday

Mark Reynolds, Alfonso Soriano and the rest of the Yankees got their hacks in Friday night, but if Red Sox fans had to pick any pitcher to come to the mound to halt Boston’s three-game losing streak (aside from a healthy Clay Buchholz), it would be John Lackey. Despite having not recorded a win since July 12 and not faring all that well in his last outing against the Bronx Bombers...

It's A-Rod Shame Weekend in America

Between today's Shame of the Week on Fox, CBS's attack on "60 Minutes," and the ESPN Schillingfest scheduled for Sunday night, it's obvious the popes have waited a long time for this weekend. The plan is for the Yankees to be humiliated, booed out of Boston, eliminated from all races, and ridiculed on the national stage. It should be the most enjoyable Yankee...
