A LOSE/LOSE FOR THE YANKEES…

It was a double whammy in the Bronx, as the New York Yankees lost to the Minnesota Twins for the second time this week 5-6; and minutes after the game ESPN New York’s Andrew Marchand tweeted that Brett Gardner was placed on the DL with strained elbow.
Marchand followed with the details that Gardner was sent a half-hour before last night’s game to get an MRI after his arm swelled after he took some swings in the batting cage. Gardner was placed on the 15-day DL after the test’s results.
This is a big loss for the Yankees as Gardner’s speed makes life a lot harder for opposing pitchers because he is such a pest but his defense is also irreplaceable, as he superb left-fielder.
The Yankees will have veterans Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones, along with Eduardo Nunez man the outfield until Gardner returns, which ...

New York Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson homered in his first three at-bats in Thursday's game against the Minnesota Twins.
Granderson clubbed a solo homer in the first inning, a two-run shot in the second and another solo blast in the fourth to give New York a 7-4 lead.
He singled in the sixth inning in his bid for his fourth consecutive home run.
It was the first...

As I was throwing out papers today, I came across the reasons the Yankees were doomed to lose the first game of their series against the Twins.
The notes were a mess; as I had written them late on Sunday night but my reasoning actually turned out to be pretty accurate so I thought why not pass it along. So, here it is just a day and a dollar...
Have a day Curtis Granderson!
The Yankees outfielder turned in the first truly spectacular individual fantasy day of the 2012 season by going 5-5 with three home runs on Thursday night. He drove in four runs.

If you did not know--I was out all day yesterday and did not know either--the Yankees and Red Sox will be wearing 1912 throwback uniforms on Friday to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park.
The Red Sox have worn these throwbacks before (below), but this will be a first for the Yankees. It'll be odd seeing the Yanks in something other than the usual road greys...

The Minnesota Twins headed to the Big Apple at the beginning of the week as winners of just two games through their first three series this year. Minnesota was coming off a three-game sweep at the hands of arguably the best team in this early season, the Texas Rangers.
It was early, but the Twins were searching for answers.

NEW YORK (AP) Minnesota Twins center fielder Denard Span and manager Ron Gardenhire were ejected in the third inning of Tuesday night's game against the New York Yankees.
With a runner on first and one out, Span took a called strike from CC Sabathia on a pitch that appeared to be inside. Span stepped behind the batter's box and appeared to exchange words with plate umpire...
