Handing out labels following the O’s 3-1 win over the Yankees …
Wei-Yin Chin — The only O’s pitcher to start more than 20 games this year delivered six and one-third of no-earned run baseball. The Yankees will be seeing inside fastballs in their sleep.
Darren O’Day and Brian Matusz — Got out of the Chin-induced jam in the seventh. Matusz had a dominant eighth too.
Jim Johnson — Totally rocked the ninth, which was nice to see.
Chris Davis — Two hits and two RBI. Is killing the ball in Sept.-Oct.
Robert Andino — Made a nice catch-turned double play in the first inning, preventing a big inning. Also started the two-out rally that ended with Davis’ two-run knock.
Ichiro’s slide — No idea how he was safe, or how far behind home plate you’d have to run before being called out of the baseline.
O’s fans — TBS sideline reporter Craig Sager’s decibel meter said Camden was louder in the ninth than any NBA arena ever. Science!?
J.J. Hardy — Was deked by A-Rod, costing the

First, the Orioles halted the Yankees' momentum. Now, it's public transportation. When the Yankees attempted to travel from Baltimore to New York on Tuesday via train, there were electrical difficulties. As a result, the team disembarked in Aberdeen, Md. and switched over to buses for the rest of the trip. "Well, I think our guys made the best of it and kind of laughed...
Alex Rodriguez carried the New York Yankees to the 2009 World Series title with an amazing power display. His more recent postseason memories all too often involve ending with a swing and a miss.
A-Rod struck out to end the Yankees' 3-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in Game 2 of their division series Monday night, and calls to drop him from the No. 3 spot in the lineup and give...

Two police troopers that were in the New York Yankees dugout at Camden Yards for last nights game against the Baltimore Orioles apparently asked Nick Swisher and Derek Jeter for their autographs… during the game.
It was the top of the ninth inning when the troopers thought it was an appropriate time to ask the Yankees stars for their

Dontrelle Willis has come a long way since being named the 2003 NL Rookie of the Year. After raking in over $40 million in career earnings, it appears the wily lefty is a little strapped for cash. After putting $40,ooo worth of modifications into his baby, it appears Willis is ready to unload his 2007 Dodge Charger. Who cares if its a hideous “Limited Edition Sublime Daytona...
In the first two games against Baltimore, Alex Rodriguez is 1 for 9 with a walk and five strikeouts. last night, he came to the plate five times and made five outs, though his first inning double play was a line drive that could have easily been a base hit had it gone a foot further to the left. Still, with his game-ending strikeout that followed a seventh inning whiff with the...
As Alex Rodriguez struggles through the playoffs, it makes you wonder, what kind of legacy will Alex Rodriguez leave? One of great accomplishments, or one marred by failure and deceit?The post What Legacy Will Alex Rodriguez Leave? appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.

The New York Yankees have designated Cory Wade for assignment, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports. The move creates room for Delin Betances who was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list to play in the Arizona Fall League (AFL).
Wade has had an up and down career as a reliever as he posted a 2.27 ERA in 2008 with the Dodgers and 2.04 ERA last season with the Yankees...
It was a hard-fought battle for eight innings...until Jim Johnson opened the floodgates in the ninth, leading to a 7-2 win for the Yankees over the Orioles in game one of their ALDS, giving the Yankees a 1-0 series lead.

Even though the team ended up losing by a score of 3-2 to the Baltimore Orioles in Game 2 of its American League Division Series match-up, New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki made the play of the game when he was able to avoid several tags by O’s catcher Matt Wieters with a series of [...]
