As the baseball world finds itself at the All-Star break, the New York Yankees find themselves on the top of the baseball world. After starting 0-3 and having an abysmal April, the Yankees got hot right at the end of May and have tore through the AL East like nobody’s business. Right now the Yankees have a 52-33 record, tops in the majors. But even the best team in Major League Baseball has its share of issues.
The injuries plaguing the Yankees have been no secret. They have had 4 different starters injured at some point during this season, 3 of which still are injured. Pineda, Sabathia, and Pettitte are still injured, and Nova was injured at one point. Brett Gardner remains on the DL with numerous setbacks from his shoulder injury, and Mariano Rivera had the most devastating injury of all for Yankees fans: a torn ACL.
Matt Garza could trade in his Cubs rags for shiny new pinstripes.
Yet the Yankees have battled through all of it. David Robertson stepped into the closer role an...

The New York Yankees have told Mr. October to stay away this summer.
A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that the Yankees want Reggie Jackson to steer clear of the clubhouse and team events following his pointed remarks about Alex Rodriguez and several former stars.

New York Yankees' second baseman Robinson Cano is the reigning Home Run Derby Champion. On Monday night he gets his opportunity to be the first back to back winner in Derby history. Can he out blast names such as Prince, Bautista, Kemp, and Trumbo? This segment was recorded prior to the announcement that Andrew McCutchen would replace Giancarlo Stanton in the competition...
New York Yankees right-hander Joba Chamberlain didn't get much defensive support, but he made a good impression Tuesday in his first rehab appearance. Working as the starter for the Yankees' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate, Chamberlain got the Pirates' leadoff man to hit a grounder on which two errors were committed, leaving the batter at second base. The next...

Robinson Cano Mocked By The KC Fans
Reggie Jackson may have been the straw that stirs the drink, but the Yankees are now asking their former slugger to stay away from their current brew of a team. Jackson, who serves as a special advisor to New York, has been "benched" by the Yankees and told to stay away from the team for the immediate future, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. The move comes in response...
However, summer may not exactly be Mr. October’s best season. This time, it isn’t a baseball hit from Jackson’s bat, but Reggie himself that has been catapulted from Yankee stadium.
Though no formal announcement, fine, or discipline has been administered, USA Today reports that, after Reggie Jackson’s insults to Alex Rodriguez in Sports Illustrated, the...
The Red Sox and Yankees have been hit with injuries this season but when you look at their Division standings, New York's in first place and Boston last place. "WHY?" If you watched this weekend's series from Fenway Park the answer was right in front of you, "age" trumped "youth."

Royals fans made their point at the Home Run Derby Monday night with the way they treated Robinson Cano. They were upset with Cano, the American League team captain, for not picking Kansas City DH Billy Butler to join the AL squad. They booed the Yankees second baseman mercilessly in a move that many thought was classless during what is supposed to be a fun event. Cano says the harassment...
