New York Yankees
NEW YORK -- The Yankee Stadium crowd grew quiet as the night went on, save for the occasional boos. The New York Yankees had started the game flexing their muscles as they had all year, pounding the Baltimore Orioles for five runs in the first. The Yankees appeared poised to end their three-game losing streak and humble the second-place Orioles with a familiar display of their firepower. But Baltimore instead left the Yankees grasping for answers, immediately responding with a seven-run second on the way to an 11-5 rout of the Yankees Tuesday night that looked anything but familiar. The jolt of a comeback victory gave the upstart Orioles their second straight win over the Yankees and moved them within 5 1/2 games of the AL East leaders. New York dropped its ninth game in the last 12. Chris Davis provided the big blow with a grand slam, and Nick Markakis added a two-run homer and his second consecutive three-hit, two-RBI game for the Orioles. Wilson Betemit also had three hit...

With Andruw Jones and the recent acquisition of Ichiro Suzuki, the Yankees can boast something that no other team can; having two outfielders with 10 Gold Gloves apiece. However, even though they have the same amount of hardware, the two couldn’t be further apart in their defensive ability.

New York Yankees first baseman, Mark Teixeira, has not suffered any structural damage to his left wrist; a report from ESPN New York confirmed on Tuesday. Teixeira underwent an MRI today and the results indicated such.
Teixeira first injured his wrist on Sunday night in an at bat against the Boston Red Sox and further aggravated his injury when trying to make a play on a ground...
Ichiro Suzuki is earning his stripes for the Yankees with excellent plays in the field, including this jumping catch at the wall to rob Baltimore Orioles infielder Mark Reynolds of extra bases on Wednesday.
The play occurred with no outs in the top of the sixth inning at Yankee stadium. Reynolds, a well streaky power hitter with a boom or bust approach at the plate, hit a fastball...
Joba Chamberlain— who expected to pitch his final rehab game in a Double-A Trenton game before returning to the Yankees— suddenly found himself being called up to the New York bullpen instead on Tuesday.
The Yankees' righthander— who was rehabbing from June 2011 Tommy John surgery when he broke his ankle in a freak trampoline accident during spring training this March—...
The Yankees are playing like bent, old structures.With no hope for fiscal stimulus, the strained facilities begin to break. A-Rod was broken by Seattle, and we did not even retaliate.The recent collapse against the red socks proves that our line-up is not able to compete, even against the downtrodden and horrible.We are, at best, shaking in the wind. At worst, we are simply broken...
Does this guy know how to pick them or what?
Veteran outfielder Ichiro Suzuki showed off his outfield skills on Sunday night, catching a pop fly behind his back during batting practice. The ten-time All-Star and former rookie of the year joined the Yankees last week after a 11 year hall of fame career with the Mariners.
Ichiro is batting .261 with the Yankees, with two runs scored and two stolen bases in six games.
In need of infield reinforcement with Alex Rodriguez sidelined due to a broken left hand and Mark Teixeira nursing a sore left wrist, the New York Yankees acquired Casey McGehee from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for reliever Chad Qualls. The Yankees will replace Qualls in the bullpen by recalling Joba Chamberlain from his rehab assignment, general manager Brian Cashman said...
Save for a frantic call to the Coast Guard, the Yankee ship would have sunk.We let the big, expensive one find its way to the bottom of the sea but, thanks to a good hearted and forward thinking owner, we salvaged a floater.It may take a while to reach shore now, but with light winds and a favorable sea, we can make progress and stay afloat.As you can see, the margin for error remains...
