Sliding Into Home:
From Pete Caldera:Mark Teixeira (sore left calf) was due to take BP on the field for the first time in a week and said he’s targeting Thursday’s series opener at Baltimore for his return.
Curtis Granderson (tight right hamstring) could be in the lineup tomorrow night, according to manager Joe Girardi.With the lead down to one, it's pretty obvious that all these injuries finally caught up with the team. Getting these guys back should help, but with the way they've been playing (with or without them) let's just hope it's not too little too late.

During Monday's Yankees-Rays game, Robinson Cano fouled a ball straight for his own radio booth and Yankees play by play man John Sterling. You can hear the amazing sound of the ball whacking Sterling's mic, as Suzyn Waldman steps in and Sterling comes back to life with a baseball in his hand. The accompanying video from MLB.com has...
From George King:
Used to hearing bad news when a player heads for an MRI exam, the Yankees received a positive report Saturday about Curtis Granderson’s right hamstring.
Granderson left Saturday’s 4-3 victory over the Orioles after two innings for what was called a tight right hamstring. The test revealed no strain, sprain or pulled muscle.
“They said it was tendinitis...
Baltimore Orioles 8 — New York Yankees 3
Phil Hughes hit a huge bump in the road and a bus of relievers appeared in today’s 8-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
Through 5 innings, Phil Hughes pounded the strike zone aggressively, a trait he was not known for. He hit his first small bump in the road when Mark Reynolds hit his first home run of the game in the 5th inning....
Derek Jeter (L) and the Yankees find themselves struggling as the division lead has disappeared.
A 10 game lead in the American League East. The wild card not even a thought. A very comfortable cushion.
That’s what the New York Yankees had back on July 18. It’s all gone now. The Yankees have gone just 19-25 in their last 44 games, and have lost seven of their last 10. The...

The Yankees not only lost to the Rays 5-2 they lost the lead in the American League East. The Yankees are now tied with the Baltimore Orioles for the top spot and if they are not careful they could fall into third...
Last night, New York Yankees’ all-world second baseman, Robinson Cano, ranged to his left on a Chris Gimenez ground ball in the eighth inning, but stepped awkwardly and failed to snare it. On the play, the eventual winning run scored, and Tampa cut the Yankee lead to one game.
Today around noon, I came across an article by John Harper, longtime columnist for the New York Daily...
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The New York Yankees had held sole possession of first place of the American League East for 84 consecutive days. Now they have to share. The Tampa Bay Rays used three home runs and a stalwart pitching effort from Alex Cobb on Tuesday at Tropicana Field to beat New York 5-2, allowing the Baltimore Orioles to climb into an AL East tie by routing the Blue...

After holding on to sole possession of the AL East for 84 days, they were tied with Baltimore for first place for one day.
