Brian Cashman blasts ‘unprofessional’ doctor who said Mariano Rivera could return this season

Ever since Mariano Rivera tore his ACL on May 3 in a freak batting practice accident, the Yankees have contended that their star closer will not be able to return this season. The team is so adamant that Rivera won’t return to the mound this season that Yankees GM Brian Cashman called out a physical therapist of Rivera’s that said otherwise. Cashman was being interviewed on...

The Stats Say The Yankees Won't Miss A-Rod

Here's the story from ESPN Stats & Info: it was worth passing along:According to AccuScore, which utilizes 10,000 computer simulations, A-Rod’s absence won’t impact the Yankees much. Assuming Rodriguez misses eight weeks, it won’t cost the Yankees even a full game. Regardless of whether he’s there or not, the odds of them winning the AL East are still better than...

Yankees are wounded wimpy losers

Alex Rodriguez (Photo credit: Keith Allison) Winning can be the best retaliation but doing nothing and losing is just not something that can be ignored. I thought the New York Yankees understood this but obviously not after witnessing yesterday’s 4-2, loss to the Seattle Mariners. The Yankees did nada but after three key batters got plunked (along with an Ibanez dusting) in the...

Suzuki is the most recognizable athlete in Japan, where...

BREAKING: Ichiro Dealt to the Yanks

In a stunning move, the New York Yankees acquired longtime Seattle Mariner Ichiro Suzuki for two players. The trade became official at 6:30 PM just before the Yankees series against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. The Yankees sent pitchers D.J.

Ichiro says he is looking forward to the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry

The rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees is arguably the most heated and historic in all of sports. When thinking about it, images of Jason Varitek and Alex Rodriguez brawling or Pedro Martinez tossing Don Zimmer probably race through your head. Is it possible to fit Ichiro into the equation? The former Mariners outfielder says he is looking forward to it. “When I watched those...

Ichiro Suzuki singles in first Yankee at-bat (Video)

New York Yankees right fielder Ichiro Suzuki got a nice ovation from Seattle Mariners fans when he approached the plate for his first at-bat as a Yankee after being traded from Seattle on Monday. Mariners pitcher Kevin Millwood stepped off the mound and gave Ichiro a little extra time so that he could acknowledge the crowd in what was a really nice moment. Appropriately enough...

Sayonara Suzuki

Yesterday marked an end of an era in Seattle as the long time face of the Mariners franchise was traded to the New York Yankees. Simply known as Ichiro in Seattle, Suzuki gave 110 percent for 12 long seasons as he tried to bring his team to victory.  Ichiro showed the MLB his raw talent for the first time in 2001 in his first week as a Mariner as he gunned down Oakland's...

Ichiro to the Bronx

Only in American baseball can a guy walk across the other side of the field and into the dugout that belonged to opponents moments earlier and call it home. It was a strange scene that the baseball world didn’t have a lot of time to prepare for. I never pictured Ichiro Suzuki in anything other than a Mariners uniform. And if it was going to happen it would be okay; we would all...
