From Chad Jennings:
Andy Pettitte had his left hand wrapped after today’s game, but he said he felt fortunate. He was fortunate to get out of the sixth inning, and fortunate to leave with no real concern about making his next start. “It’s swollen, and as soon as the swelling gets out, it’ll be fine,” Pettitte said. “It swelled up, got me up high on the hand, toward my fingers. It was hard to throw. I couldn’t really feel the ball. It swelled up immediately and I just had a hard time feeling the ball in my hand. … I probably should have came out.” ... Pettitte had X-rays which showed no broken bones, but his hand was swollen throughout those final two outs.
Looks like the Yankees dodged another bullet.

New York Yankees: Gardner solutions

Ode to Brett Gardner. After a perennial sluggish start, the New York Yankees have smoothed out the kinks and are playing solid baseball again. This doesn’t mean the Yankees problems are solved but it does show fans that the Bombers can still compete at the top, which was once again somewhat in question not so long ago. At this point in the season, no team is home free. The likelihood...

Nothing but respect between Jeter, Jones

They were both young and full of vigor in 1996, two guys barely in their 20s and just starting careers full of promise. Chipper Jones and Derek Jeter met on the field that year as the Atlanta Braves and New Yankees played in the World Series. They both had the talent and tools and seemed destined for greatness, but it would have been tough for anyone to predict that they would...

Game Preview: Mets @ Yankees

The Mets try to salvage the series today as they take on Andy Pettitte for game three of the Subway Series. The Mets have dropped the first two games of the series and really need to bounce back. Yesterday the Mets had the pitching but outside of solo homers, the offense fell short. Niese will try to get the Mets back on the right track today. On the season he is 4-2 with a 4.11...

Podcast Episode 10: Interleague Swan Song

After this season, interleague play as we know it probably will cease to exist. The 6-game season series between the Yankees and the Mets should be a thing of the past, and there should be no more large chunks of time spent playing teams in the other league. The Yankees just swept the first 3 games of the 2012 Subway Series and now enter into that large chunk of time playing the...

Report: Jorge Soler Could Sign a Deal By Monday

From the NYPost:According to an industry source, free agent outfielder Jorge Soler is expected to agree on a four-year deal before tomorrow. The Yankees and Cubs have expressed strong interest in the 20-year-old, who some scouts believe is a better player than fellow Cuban defector Yoenis Cespedes, 26, who signed with the Athletics. The Yankees don’t have Nick Swisher’s...

BP Unfiltered: Russell Branyan, Jack Cust, and a TTO Dream Come True by Ben Lindbergh

Some very prominent prospects are putting up some very pretty numbers in Triple-A. But you can have Adam Eaton's .398 average, Anthony Rizzo's 22 homers, Brett Jackson's eight triples, Anthony Gose' 24 steals, and Trevor Bauer's 11.8 strikeouts per nine. I'll take these two: That's half of the box score from Sunday's Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees...
