I have to chalk this up to whatever the exact opposite of “bank error in your favor” would be. The Yankees’ Chris Stewart shouldn’t solely be blamed for this, even though it would appear to be all his fault. The young man somehow lost track of what the count he was and after he swung and missed on a 1-and-1 count he took a little trip back to the dugout thinking he struck out. The only issue was that he didn’t but somehow play resumed like nothing was wrong.
According to Eye on Baseball:
Nothing in the rulebook says home plate umpire Jim Wolf is obligated to call the hitter back to the plate in a situation like that.
“[Wolf] said something the first pitch, and I thought he called it a strike,” said Stewart to MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch after the game. “I assumed it was 0-1, I fouled a ball off and I swung and missed at a ball. No one said anything; the umpire didn’t say anything, so I just came on back to the dugout and put my stuff away.”
This is definitely the first time I have seen ...

As of today, the New York Yankees sit one game back in the AL Wild Card standings.
And this has made Yankees haters confused, and of course angry again.
As many have asked me, how are the too old, too injured and already declared postseason-less Bronx Bombers still very much alive?
Well i told them that just like in life, timing...
If someone told you a month ago that, with two weeks left in the season the Yankees would only be a game out of the second Wild Card spot, would you have believed them? Oh, come on. You know you wouldn't have.That is exactly where the Yankees are. There are 15 games left and, if they win most of them, they will be, at the very least, playing in the one game playoff.It won...
New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was forced to exit Tuesday's game early after tweaking his left hamstring. While he was still experiencing discomfort yesterday, he was "ready to go" enough to suit up as the team's designated hitter.
Rodriguez told reporters -- including Bryan Hoch of MLB.com -- that he could feel a knot in the lower part of his...
The New York Yankees activated pitcher David Phelps from the 60-Day DL Saturday according to the Yankees official Twitter page. The team moved Derek Jeter to the 60-Day DL to open a spot on the 40-man roster for Phelps.
The Yankees originally placed Phelps on the DL with a forearm strain on July 6 two days after he allowed four runs in six innings against the Twins. He had only...
When New York Yankees catcher Austin Romine was forced to exit a game earlier this week after taking a foul ball off his mask, there was suspicion that he had suffered a concussion. That was officially diagnosed, and manager Joe Girardi told reporters -- including Bryan Hoch of MLB.com -- that Romine will be shut down for a few days before being re-evaluated.
The New York Yankees are in the midst of one of their most intense postseason chases in recent memory. In a season that has seen a little bit of everything, you have to wonder if the late demise of Yankees pitching, most noticeably their bullpen, is the fault of General Manager Brian Cashman.
At first it was the offense that was carried by their pitching. The Yankees were winning...

New York Yankees 4 – Boston Red Sox 8
Gritty comeback efforts go for nothing in tonight’s 8-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
In the first inning, the Red Sox sent John Lackey to the mound and the Yankees took advantage of the defensive alignments. With two outs and a heavily shifted to the right side infield, Robinson Cano dropped the perfect bunt...
Who is the “Face of Baseball?”
That was the question that the folks at ESPN.com wanted answered, so they turned to Turnkey Intelligence, one of America’s most prominent sports-polling firms. The results were not only interesting, but they might also be enough to keep MLB commissioner Bud Selig up at night.
ESPN.com reports that Alex Rodriguez was the first player named by 22...
He is Derek Jeter so of course he was going to make it back for Opening Day. And when he refractured his left ankle the recalibration was to early in the second half — ahead of schedule for sure — to help save the Yankees’ season.
Jeter wasn’t going to be stopped by quad and calf setbacks and even this latest ankle misery hardly diluted the belief that somehow some way he...

New York Yankees 1 — Boston Red Sox 5
Offense held down by Jon Lester in today’s 5-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
CC Sabathia got today’s start and had a perfect first inning but it went downhill from there. Mike Napoli would hit an infield single that Mark Reynolds would field at third base. The throw from Reynolds would go wide of first and...
A small army of attorneys including veteran sports lawyer David Cornwell and brash New York criminal defense attorney Joe Tacopina will advise Alex Rodriguez when the appeal of his suspension begins on Sept. 30.
Lawyers from the Major League Baseball Players Association will join Team A-Rod in the defense of the scandal-stained superstar; union chief Michael Weiner has publicly...
CC Sabathia (13-12, 4.82 ERA) continues the hunt for the Yanks for October, standing in his way is Jon Lester (13-8 3.86 ERA.) Sabathia was outpitched by the Orioles’ Chris Tillman in his last outing, taking the loss after allowing three earned runs in 7 1/3 innings. He is 2-1 with a bloated 7.15 ERA in four starts against Boston this year.
Lester has been tremendous in the second...
Tonight, the Boston Red Sox will honor New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before Sunday's game, which will be Mariano's last game at Fenway Park, barring a playoff match up (not likely, though). Rivera announced before this season started that he would be retiring at the end of the season. It's the ultimate gesture of respect when...
