From Chad Jennings: The Yankees expect Mark Teixeira to be in the lineup and playing first base tomorrow. After playing in an instructional league game yesterday, Teixeira will go through a normal workout today and rejoin the Yankees when they get home for this final three-game series against the Red Sox. It will be Teixeira’s first game since aggravating his strained calf injury on September 8, and only his second game since originally hurting himself on August 27. His injury through the month of September, and Alex Rodriguez’s injury through the month of August means it’s been a long time since the Yankees have consistently had two of their middle-of-the-order bats in the lineup at the same time. “Obviously two middle-of-the-order hitters, number one,” Girardi said. “But two, it gives you the ability not to stack left handers, which is something that we’ve had to fight and at times we’ve been vulnerable to that. It seemed like everyone was throwing left handers against us, a...

Yankees Injury News: Mark Teixeira Returns

New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira was back in the lineup last night, returning from a calf injury that’s sidelined him for much of the past month. In his return, Teixeira batted fifth and went 1-3 with a two-run home run and a walk. Teixeira initially injured his calf at the end of August. The strain caused the slugger to miss roughly a week and a half of action...

Photo: A Babe Ruth look-a-like like no other

The resemblance is absolutely amazing. Willis “Buster” Gardner of Oberlin, Ohio won a Babe Ruth look-a-like contest as part of the 85th birthday celebration this week for the famous Gallagher’s steakhouse in New York City — a restaurant whose walls are lined with 700 photos of actors, politicians, business leaders and athletes — such as Ruth. Gallagher’s opened in 1927...

Red Sox fan reels in HR for Yankees

Jeffrey Maier, he's not. But on fan found himself on the wrong end of a controversial home run call at Yankee Stadium on Monday night. The strange part? That the offender appeared to be a Red Sox fan, helping out the Yankees in their own building. In the second inning of Monday's game, a man wearing a Dustin Pedroia jersey reached over the right-field wall at Yankee Stadium...

Yankees Question of the Day – October 1, 2012

As the Yankees prepare to finish off the 2012 regular season with a home series against their rival Boston Red Sox, Derek Jeter is just 6 hits shy of tying his career season high of 219, which was set in 1999. Entering tonight ballgame sitting at 213 hits, do you think Jeter will end the season: Just short of his career season high of 219 Tied with his career season high of 219...

Did Sabathia pitch too long Monday?

"One game at a time." It is a mantra of baseball managers, an approach that enables them to focus on the one thing that they can control -- the game in front of them -- without worrying about other concerns. "One game at a time." The Yankees' Joe Girardi -- in a decision that was curious at best, dangerous at worst -- used precisely that rationale for extending...

David Cone calls Ichiro’s bat a ‘chopstick’

David Cone may have some racial sensitivity classes in his future after a comment he made on Tuesday. The former Cy Young Award winner and current Yankees TV analyst for YES Network referred to outfielder Ichiro Suzuki’s bat as a “chopstick” on the telecast during the Yankees-Red Sox game. “Probably a ball, but Suzuki with the chopstick,” Cone said while watching a replay...

Yankees' Jayson Nix to Miss 10-14 Days

Yesterday, a strange thing happened.  Eduardo Nunez was removed from the Yankees game and Derek Jeter moved from DH out to shortstop.  This left Andy Pettitte slotted in the lineup to hit.  Of course, things worked themselves out and Pettitte did not have to bat, but Nunez's exit magnified the absence of Jayson Nix.  Nix had reported back to New York yesterday...

Yankees' top pitching prospect faces Tommy John surgery

Manny Banuelos, considered the New York Yankees' top pitching prospect, is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery Thursday that likely will sideline him for the 2013 season. Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure in Pensacola, Fla., on the 21-year-old Banuelos, who hasn't pitched since May for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. The Yankees apparently thought the injury...

T Minus 2: Yanks Win, O's Lose

It's a 1-game lead with 2 games to play. The Yankees beat a dead Red Sox team last night while the Orioles lost to a Rays team that was on life support. The big joke about the Boston Red Sox these days is that they are actually the Pawtucket Red Sox. Six players in last night's Boston lineup started 2012 in triple A. Meanwhile, the Yankees had their full lineup in the game...

TV Ratings: Mere 1.1 Overnight For ‘MLB on FOX’ Finale (Also: SEC on CBS, Yankees on YES)

FOX ended regular season Major League Baseball coverage on an extremely low note over the weekend. In other news, SEC coverage suffered a decline on CBS Saturday, and the New York Yankees — of all teams — are on pace for their lowest regular season ratings in ten seasons. MLB Regular Season Ends With Terrible Overnight on FOX: The regular season finale of Major League Baseball...

The New York Yankees Down To Their Last 2 Games With A 1 Game Lead In A.L. East

The New York Yankees are down to the wire folks, they beat the Boston Red Sox last night in the second inning alone. The Yankees made it look like batting practice as they scored 9 runs in the second inning against the Red Sox, they are hanging onto the A.L. East with a one game lead and you can bet the Red Sox are going to do what they can to try to derail the men in pinstripes...

Mitt Romney invested in the Yankees

From The Daily Kos: [A]ccording to his 2007 financial disclosure forms, Romney—who claims to be a Red Sox fan—was invested in the Yankees Entertainment and Sports Network, the broadcast arm of the New York Yankees corporate empire. As the anchor says at the end of this clip from 2007, "You never know until you look at somebody's stock portfolio what they're thinking."

Red Sox Fail to Help Orioles Against Yankees, End Up as 'Bird Bait' to Raul Ibanez in Extras (Video)

Just when you think they're out, they keep reeling you back in. The Red Sox were poised to help the Orioles grab a share of the American League East with one game left to play, but let a win slip through their fingertips. Raul Ibanez homered off Andrew Bailey in the ninth inning and singled home the winning run off Andrew Miller in the 12th, capping off a wild night in the Bronx...

Pedro Ciriaco Will Need to Take Yankee Killer Reputation to Next Level to Knock New York Out of First Place (Video)

As CC Sabathia takes the mound for the Yankees on Monday night, he might be understandably licking his chops at the prospect of facing this Red Sox lineup. Without the likes of Jacoby Ellsbury or Dustin Pedroia batting for Boston, Sabathia will instead get a chance to face a Red Sox lineup that is a bit, shall we say, lacking in star power. However, there is one possible fly in Sabathia...
