New York Yankees (2-4) at Cleveland Indians (3-3)  Series 3, Games 7, 8, 9 and 10 Progressive Field (2012): 0.899*, Pitchers park. *Park Factor compares the rate of stats at home vs. the rate of stats on the road. A rate higher than 1.000 favors the hitter. Below 1.000 favors the pitcher. Series Overview   The New York Yankees help open up Progressive Field for the first time this season for a four game series. However, these are not the typical Yankees we are used to fearing. Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira will all miss an extended period of time due to injuries. For at least a little more than a month, the Yankees are going to have a lot of money and a lot of star power on the disabled list, something the organization has not had to deal with a lot. The team still stands to earn a playoff birth, as all three of these players will return this season. Thankfully, it will not be this week in Cleveland. It would be easy to dismiss this as ...

Yesterday marked six weeks since Granderson was hit by a J.A. Happ fastball in his first spring training at-bat.

Granderson could soon resume throwing

Yankees outfielder Curtis Granderson could resume throwing next week as part of his rehabilitation program for a broken right forearm. Granderson said Saturday he will have follow-up X-rays Tuesday.

Rare Honus Wagner card sells for $2.1 million, A-Rod's WS ring goes for $50K

Modern day ballplayers Alex Rodriguez and even Derek Jeter have nothing on Honus Wagner. A rare 1909-11 baseball card with Wagner featured on the front sold at auction for a whopping $2.1 million after weeks of extended bidding.  The price includes a buyer's premium but was still about a third short of the $3 million the auction expected to fetch. The item was the centerpiece...

Trevor Bauer Throws A Golden Huarache

So far, Trevor Bauer's adjustment to life in pro ball from UCLA is off to a much worse start than Keifer Sutherland's television career after 24. Have you seen Touch? Yeah, neither has anyone else. Making his Cleveland Indians debut after the Diamondbacks jettisoned Bauer (Trevor) for cents on the dollar, the 22-year-old pitcher turned in a performance that led me to believe...

Around the Farm: April 8, 2013

Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday’s performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday’s game. Toru Murata: SP, Akron: W (1-0), 7 IP, 3 H, 1 R/ER, 9K: Murata will likely never end up as a top prospect, but he certainly knows how to pitch. In 2011, Murata went 3-2 with a 2.36 ERA...

Hafner, Cano power Yankees past Indians

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Travis Hafner drove in four runs in his return to Cleveland and Robinson Cano homered twice as the injury-riddled New York Yankees wrecked the Indians' opener -- and manager Terry Francona's first home game -- with an 11-6 win Monday. Hafner hit a three-run homer in the first inning off Ubaldo Jimenez (0-1) and added an RBI single in the third. Cano connected...

Betances AIms to Leave 2012 Troubles Behind

By Nicole Sorce Sports Media MOOSIC, Pa. – As their first series of the 2013 International League season winds down, it seems that it’s been all too easy to focus on the things that are going wrong with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders After getting swept in four straight games by the Pawtucket Red Sox to open their new PNC Field, it’s safe to say that the...

What If?

What if the Yankees don't get any better when Derek, Tex, A-Rod and Grandy get back?

Second Thoughts: Game #4:Rays 4, Indians 0

Everybody Makes Mistakes Young right-hander Zach McAllister went out and made some mistakes, but overall had a quality start stats-wise as he was only charged with two runs in six innings of work despite giving up four. However, the two unearned runs he gave up due to a fielding error at third base by Mike Aviles is not a new problem for McAllister as he struggled with pitching around...
