Found September 29, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Baltimore Orioles claimed outfielder Steve Pearce off waivers after the New York Yankees designated him for assignment, reported Saturday. Pearce, 29, is not eligible for the postseason if the Orioles make it, but he adds depth the last few games of the regular season. Outfielder Lew Ford is out with a groin injury. The Orioles actually acquired Pearce from the Yankees for cash in June, then the Houston Astros claimed him off waivers at the end of July. The Yankees picked up Pearce a second time earlier this week when then the Astros let him go. Pearce is batting .239 with four home runs and 26 RBI in 159 at-bats this year. The Orioles recalled right-hander Oliver Drake and placed him on the 60-day disabled list with shoulder tendinitis to make room for Pearce.

NY Post columnist calls out Yanks’ Michael Kay and Robinson Cano

  Phil Mushnick of the NY Post had some critical words for New York Yankees second basemen Robinson Cano and the voice of the Yankees Michael Kay.  See, Michael Kay has a propensity for calling out professional players that don’t show hustle or show professionalism at all times. However, this could be a bit of a contradiction seeing that one of the Yankees best players, Robinson...

Yankees: Hugh for Hughes

Phil Hughes (Photo credit: alexabboud) New York Yankees loss + Baltimore Orioles win = AL East first-place tie. Yesterdays, 3-2, loss vs. the Blue Jays was the same old song of stranding runners on base and not doing anything to different to change things. The power hitting Yankees need to get back to hitting homers ASAP, as there are only four games left in the regular season...

Yankees' Jayson Nix to Miss 10-14 Days

Yesterday, a strange thing happened.  Eduardo Nunez was removed from the Yankees game and Derek Jeter moved from DH out to shortstop.  This left Andy Pettitte slotted in the lineup to hit.  Of course, things worked themselves out and Pettitte did not have to bat, but Nunez's exit magnified the absence of Jayson Nix.  Nix had reported back to New York yesterday...

Girardi’s decisions questionable

The Yankees have been in an absolute dogfight over the past month or so, as Baltimore has constantly been on their heels. Currently, New York holds a half game lead, and the Orioles are leading 4-3 against the feeble and useless Red Sox. As the Yankees fight to maintain their grip on the AL East, one thing has caught my eye recently: Joe Girardi’s managerial decisions have sometimes...
