Found June 25, 2012 on Bronx Pinstripes:
  AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Adam Warren started for Scranton, tossing five shutout innings before being pulled. He ultimately would combine with Chase Whitley, Juan Cedeno, and Ryota Igarashi to shut out Indianapolis 4-0. Warren had allowed just five hits and a walk on the day. The win brought Warren’s record on the season to 5-5. [...]

Cluck you, Joe Buck and Tim McCarver: Charlie Sheen and Yankees win were only two things worth watching Saturday

Who would have thought that aside from the Yankees winning Saturday, that Charlie Sheen would be the highlight of the FOX broadcast? I am generally not a big fan of  in-game interviews, especially on radio -- John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman had Michael Millken on a few weeks ago, and there was no way to get a clue about what was going on. But I digress. Anyhow, while I was excited...

Cano's bat is coming to life

Earlier this season, it felt as if Robinson Cano would never find his power stroke. That is no longer a concern. Cano homered for the sixth time in his last eight games, driving in three runs Monday to lead the New York Yankees to a 7-1 win over the Cleveland Indians. "We want to get him on a roll there as well because he's in the middle of our lineup and he's important...

Now, I am about to head to your ballpark for the battle of the initials -- CC vs. RA -- but if Dickey's scoreless streak ends, don't blame me!I hope it doesn't rain tonight -- Jon and I and 40+ thousand fans had to wait out an hourlong rain delay Friday....

Indians fall to Kiroda, Yankees

NEW YORK (AP) -- Robinson Cano homered and drove in three runs to extend his recent tear, Hiroki Kuroda took a shutout into the eighth inning and the New York Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians 7-1 on Monday night. Nick Swisher and Dewayne Wise also went deep for the homer-happy Yankees, who opened a seven-game homestand against the top two teams in the AL Central with their third...

Alex Rodriguez was milliseconds away from taking a pitch to the face

The New York Yankees took on the New York Mets tonight where Alex Rodriguez had a pitch thrown directly at his head. He was able to duck out of the way in time but it was pretty close to nailing him in his face. This ball was thrown at around 70 MPH and the Mets’ catcher was unable to catch the ball. A-Rod collapsed to the ground with a smile that he didn’t get hit in the face...

Yankees 6, Mets 5

Robinson Cano hit a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning and the New York Yankees touched up R.A. Dickey for five runs in a 6-5 victory over the Mets on Sunday night. Nick Swisher had an early three-run shot against Dickey, who was coming off consecutive one-hitters - making him the first major league pitcher in 24 years to accomplish that feat. But in a much-anticipated matchup...

Kuroda in Cruise Control

  Perhaps it was the nerves of transitioning to a new team that got the best of him in the beginning of the year. Or maybe it was just the pressure of playing baseball in the big apple that took some time for him to adjust to. Whatever the case may be, Hiroki Kuroda seems [...]
