PLAYERS: Nick Swisher
TEAMS: New York Yankees
Your browser does not support iframes. We know now at least of couple of things after Game Five of the ALDS between the Yankees and Orioles. One, the Bronx Bombers are headed to the ALCS after winning the decisive game, 3-1. And two, Nick Swisher really, really likes eye black. He wanted to make darn sure the glare of the sun didn't get in his eyes on Friday.A few questions arise after seeing this though. Like how sunny could it really be in The Big Apple on a cool day in October? How many sticks of eye black did it take? Or maybe Swisher's copious amount of facial paint more intended for an intimidation factor to his opponent? Either way it worked.

There are lots of things in this world of ours I can...

ALDS Game 5: Yankees 3, Orioles 1

It wasn't the shutout I said had to happen but it was a complete game win nonetheless. CC Sabathia finished off a great run for Yankee pitchers in the ALDS by allowing just one run on four hits, and walking two and striking out nine.On the other side of the ball, the three runs the Yankees scored felt like ten with the big fella on the mound. But it was the way they scored the...

Column: Day of reckoning had to come for A-Rod

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist Joe Girardi should be manager of the year just for the guts it took to sit down his $275 million third baseman and help the New York Yankees advance a step closer to the World Series.
