Baseball American - the Mooney's Financial Rating System of baseball - has listed the Yankees as one of five organizations whose farm system had a crummy first half. Of course, this is like Arthur Anderson saying there might be a problem with Enron - (For young readers, you'll have to Google this.)Last winter, BA - as it's known in Twitter shorthand - praised the organization...
Derek Jeter knows it's going to take time to get back from his ankle injury, even though he'd rather be in the Bronx.
"I want to play. I'm ready to play but I understand I have to play some games here," said Jeter, who finished his first rehab game with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Saturday night going 0 for 2 with a walk.
"But I look forward to getting...

Kansas City Royals 5 — New York Yankees 1
Lackluster lineup struggled in tonight’s 5-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals.
The Yankees turned to Phil Hughes to open the series. After a quick and easy first inning, the “2012 Home...
The Yankees Sunday afternoon loss to the Baltimore Orioles felt like a big deal. With Mariano Rivera on the mound after 7.0 strong shutout innings from a thankfully healthy Hiroki Kuroda, it felt like a sweep was inevitable. The standings were already recalculated in Yankees fans heads with the Yankees pulling 1.5 games ahead of the Orioles and remaining in a tie with the Tampa...
Hiroki Kuroda (7-6, 2.95 ERA) looks for a little payback sweep against Jason Hammel (7-5, 5.19 ERA) and Orioles after the Yanks were swept in Baltimore last week. Kuroda comes back to the rotation after having a start pushed back due to a sore left hip flexor. He last faced the Orioles on June 30, taking the loss after going six innings allowing four runs on seven hits.
People enjoy watching Alex Rodriguez get hit with stray fastballs. We'll not explore the reasons that might be, but it does seem to be a shared experience for many many Americans.
You would think that experience would not be shared by those close to the pitcher, who in throwing a bean-ball has damaged either his statistical rating or his personal reputation.
But there is one...
According to a report from TJ Quinn and Mike Fish at ESPN.com, Major League Baseball is making preparations to suspend Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez among 20 other players in wake of the Biogenesis scandal where it is believed that these players received performance-enhancing drugs. Per Quinn and Fish: Commissioner Bud Selig’s office is expected to suspend Braun and Rodriguez,...
Yankees fans rejoice: Captain Intangibles was back on the field this weekend! Yes, Derek Sanderson Jeter spent his pos…
Manny Machado has just turned 21, so if you happen to see him in a bar, you can now send over a drink. And he certainly deserves one for the play he made Sunday against the Yankees' Luis Cruz.
On a ground ball up the line, the Orioles third baseman temporarily lost the handle but quickly recovered, then rocketed a throw to first -- while falling away in foul ground, nearly so...

Baltimore Orioles 2 — New York Yankees 1
The game turned from good to bad in an instant today’s 2-1 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
The low-scoring affair between AL East contenders started in favor...
Jeremy Guthrie (7-6, 4.29 ERA) and the Royals come to the Bronx to take on Phil Hughes (4-7, 4.55 ERA) and the Yankees in a three game set. Hughes has put together two solid starts as he tries to improve his season, holding the Rangers and Twins to three runs and 11 hits in 15 innings combined. He last faced the Royals on May 10th during the sweep, allowing six runs on seven hits...
There's a device used by baseball official scorers to erase a meaningless stolen base in the final, meaningless inning of a game. It's called "Defensive Indifference," when the runner literally jogs to second, untouched. I think the Yankees must lead the league in DI's, because they're not only always behind, but nobody - nobody - cares.I propose a new definition...
According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, the Phillies have expressed interest in Yankee reliever Joba Chamberlain. He suggests that Michael Young and Carlos Ruiz are some names that are being thrown around as possible players in a deal. Here’s the quote:
National League sources say the Phillies are amenable to dealing Michael Young and have expressed interest in Joba...
MLB plans to suspend Ryan Braun, Alex Rodriguez, and as many as 20 other players soon after the All-Star break because of their ties to Biogenesis, ESPN’s Outside the Lines reports. Tony Bosch, who ran the Biogenesis clinic, cut a deal with MLB last month to provide information which helped them build their cases against [...]
