If you're a Major League Baseball team that has a big star with a big contract that you're looking to dump, you better be sure you've got the Los Angeles Dodgers on speed dial. The New York Post reports that the Dodgers have inquired with the Yankees about the possibility of acquiring CC Sabathia or Mark Teixeira from New York. According to the report, the Yankees currently have no interest in dealing either of the high-paid All-Stars. The Dodgers have hit the ground running under new ownership, acquiring Hanley Ramirez from the Marlins last month before taking on $260 million...

Time For New York Yankees To Trade Mark Teixeira?

When the New York Yankees gave first baseman Mark Teixeira an eight year deal worth over $180 million back in December of 2008, they figured they were getting a power hitting player who brought along a solid .300 average and a stellar gold glove defensively. He had a fantastic first season with New York on their way to winning the 27th World Series championship in franchise...

Feeling Helpless On A Yankees Off-Day

There were no positives in yesterday's series finale between the Blue Jays and Yankees. None at all. Everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong: CC Sabathia was ineffective, the defense made 3 errors, the lineup was 3-17 with RISP, and the bullpen stunk.If it were earlier in the season it would be easy, as a fan, to follow that well-worn player mantra about turning the...

New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira will miss at least one to two weeks with a Grade 1 strain of his left calf, an injury he suffered while running out a foul grounder in the fourth inning Monday night. Teixeira drew a walk in the at-bat and scored later in the inning, but he left the game after the fourth, going to a local hospital for an MRI. "I took the first...

Blue Jays beat up on Sabathia, Yanks

CC Sabathia took the blame. Manager Joe Girardi spread it around. No matter whose mistakes cost the Yankees in their sixth loss in nine games, they need to straighten things out: the quickly closing Baltimore Orioles are coming to the Bronx for three games starting Friday. Sabathia failed to hold two leads, and New York made three errors and went homerless at Yankee Stadium in...

New York Yankees’ Mark Teixeira Injures Calf in Extra Innings Loss Against Toronto Blue Jays

Mark Teixeira Out With Calf Injury

Yankees 130 Lineup: 8/30/12

C.C. Sabathia will shoot for another solid start since his return from the DL Phil Hughes continued the success of the starting rotation last night by putting on a stellar seven-inning performance, giving up just four hits and one earned run as the Yankees held on tightly and edged out the Blue Jays by a score of 2-1. Yankee ace, C.C. Sabathia will look to provide his club with more...

Updates on A-Rod, Tex & Pettitte

On to better news, Andy Pettitte threw off flat ground for the first time since his ankle injury:Andy Pettitte could be throwing off a mound before the end of the week. The lefthander took...

Yankees' slump raises Girardi's ire

Joe Girardi rarely shows anger over his team's play during his postgame press conferences. However, with the Yankees about to begin a key 10-game stretch against Baltimore and Tampa Bay -- the two teams directly behind the Yankees and closing in the AL East -- the New York manager clearly was agitated after the Bombers bombed in all facets in an 8-5 loss Wednesday against the...
