The Victory Formation:
Some players have finely wised up and decided that they aren’t Ted Williams, and are dropping bunts when a shift has been put on them. Robinson Cano faced a shift against the Boston Red Sox this evening in his first…Read more →

Brett Gardner suffered a strained left oblique in the first inning of Thursday’s game against Baltimore. The injury occurred on a check swing.
Garnder’s season could be over if the Yankees fail to make the post season as these injuries typically take two to three weeks to come back from.
Left oblique strain for Brett Gardner. That can easily be a 2-3 week problem...
After beating Buck’s Birds for the second night in a row 5-4, plus some key losses, the New York Yankees have propelled themselves to one behind the

New York Yankees 4 – Boston Red Sox 8
Gritty comeback efforts go for nothing in tonight’s 8-4 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
In the first inning, the Red Sox sent John Lackey to the mound and the Yankees took advantage of the defensive alignments. With two outs and a heavily shifted to the right side infield, Robinson Cano dropped the perfect bunt...
If someone told you a month ago that, with two weeks left in the season the Yankees would only be a game out of the second Wild Card spot, would you have believed them? Oh, come on. You know you wouldn't have.That is exactly where the Yankees are. There are 15 games left and, if they win most of them, they will be, at the very least, playing in the one game playoff.It won...
The New York Yankees activated pitcher David Phelps from the 60-Day DL Saturday according to the Yankees official Twitter page. The team moved Derek Jeter to the 60-Day DL to open a spot on the 40-man roster for Phelps.
The Yankees originally placed Phelps on the DL with a forearm strain on July 6 two days after he allowed four runs in six innings against the Twins. He had only...
When New York Yankees catcher Austin Romine was forced to exit a game earlier this week after taking a foul ball off his mask, there was suspicion that he had suffered a concussion. That was officially diagnosed, and manager Joe Girardi told reporters -- including Bryan Hoch of MLB.com -- that Romine will be shut down for a few days before being re-evaluated.
The Yankees last game against Boston this season has Ivan Nova (8-4 3.17 ERA) taking on the undefeated Clay Buchholz (10-0, 1.61 ERA.) Nova was limited to 79 pitches his last time out due to triceps tightness, but the Yankees believe he can stay in the rotation. He has faced Boston just once this year, allowing three runs in a four-inning start on September 5th. “You never want...
The New York Yankees are in the midst of one of their most intense postseason chases in recent memory. In a season that has seen a little bit of everything, you have to wonder if the late demise of Yankees pitching, most noticeably their bullpen, is the fault of General Manager Brian Cashman.
At first it was the offense that was carried by their pitching. The Yankees were winning...
Who is the “Face of Baseball?”
That was the question that the folks at ESPN.com wanted answered, so they turned to Turnkey Intelligence, one of America’s most prominent sports-polling firms. The results were not only interesting, but they might also be enough to keep MLB commissioner Bud Selig up at night.
ESPN.com reports that Alex Rodriguez was the first player named by 22...
Bobby Valentine made some incredibly idiotic comments on Wednesday about the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. In short, he felt it necessary to say that the New York Mets were more visible in the days after the tragedy and did more to help the community than the New York Yankees. Later in the […]

New York Yankees 1 — Boston Red Sox 5
Offense held down by Jon Lester in today’s 5-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox.
CC Sabathia got today’s start and had a perfect first inning but it went downhill from there. Mike Napoli would hit an infield single that Mark Reynolds would field at third base. The throw from Reynolds would go wide of first and...
CC Sabathia (13-12, 4.82 ERA) continues the hunt for the Yanks for October, standing in his way is Jon Lester (13-8 3.86 ERA.) Sabathia was outpitched by the Orioles’ Chris Tillman in his last outing, taking the loss after allowing three earned runs in 7 1/3 innings. He is 2-1 with a bloated 7.15 ERA in four starts against Boston this year.
Lester has been tremendous in the second...
Tonight, the Boston Red Sox will honor New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera before Sunday's game, which will be Mariano's last game at Fenway Park, barring a playoff match up (not likely, though). Rivera announced before this season started that he would be retiring at the end of the season. It's the ultimate gesture of respect when...
