Reading Between The Seams:
Both ends of this double play are amazing, New York Yankees catcher Chris Stewart quickly locates foul ball behind the plate hit by Boston Red Sox All-Star Dustin Pedroia, makes the catch slamming into wall and even over it. Then has the wherewithal to see that the Red Sox runner on first Daniel Nava thinks he’s going to pull a fast one and tag up and go to second. A ROPE to second ends that thought.

After starting the second-half with a 5-2 loss to the Red Sox in the opener of their three-game, weekend series on Friday night, the New York Yankees ended their three-game skid with a 4-2 win in Boston on Saturday afternoon. Now 52-45 and in fourth place, six-games out of first, the Yankees continue to somehow keep pace with the pack and stay

Hiroki Kuroda evens the series with the Red Sox in today’s 5-2 win.
The Yankees would have Brett Gardner reach on an (ill-advised) slide into first for a single. When Ichiro Suzuki lined out to...
As soon as the second half of the season began, the New York Yankees placed Derek Jeter on the DL retroactive to him pulling his quad. Fortunately, the injury does not seem terribly severe. In fact, Jeter believes he is ready to return to the lineup - possibly as early as Saturday.

After playing a mere game for the New York Yankees this season, Derek Jeter has once again found himself on the disabled list.
The Bronx Bombers placed the 39-year-old shortstop on the 15 day DL. Such a move comes from Jeter suffering a right quad strain in his season debut July 11 in an 8-4 victory over the Kansas City Royals.
Derek Jeter is back on the disabled list.
The Yankees placed their captain on the 15-day DL on Friday. He strained his right quad in his first game back with New York last week after being out all season with a broken left ankle.
The Yankees had waited to make a decision, using the four days of the All-Star break for the shortstop to receive treatment. But with New York set to...

Today the Yankees placed their captain on the 15 Day DL after Jeet strained his quadriceps in his first game back after injuring his ankle.

Alex Rodriguez rumbled around first base after ripping a liner to the left-field wall in the eighth inning last night only to be thrown out easily at second base.
Rodriguez said he’s still rounding into playing form ahead of Monday’s scheduled return to the Yankees, but admitted he’s not going to get much more nimble.

New York Yankees 7 — Boston Red Sox 8 (11 innings)
Mike Napoli’s second home run of the night is a walk-off in tonight’s 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox in 11 innings.
Early in the game, the Yankees looked to catch the Red Sox slacking defensively....
The decision has been made.
The New York Yankees will place shortstop Derek Jeter on the 15-day disabled list on Friday, a source has confirmed to MLBDailyDish's Chris Cotillo. The 39-year old strained his right quad in his season debut last week against the Kansas City Royals, and has been day-to-day ever since.
Jeter, who missed the first half of the season due to the ankle...
Normally a Red Sox-Yankees match-up has that Clash of the Titans vibe around it. But right now, as the Yanks come to Fenway six games behind us in the East, with Jeter on the shelf and 84 year-old Andy Pettitte starting in the opener, I almost feel bad for New York. Not that bad, mind you. Just kinda bad.
During last year’s “lost season,” the Sox went into the All Star break...
CC Sabathia (9-8, 4.07 ERA) is in charge of the rubber match against the Sox tonight as he goes up against Ryan Dempster (5-8, 4.24 ERA). Sabathia is trying to rebound from what he called a “terrible” first half. He’s trying to fix an arm slot issue from his last start. He’s 1-1 against Boston this year, including beating them with 7 1/3 innings of one run ball back on May...
We already know about amazing standing ovation Mariano Rivera got at Citi Field during the All-Star Game. Then came the surprising standing-O the soon-to-be-retired closer received at Fenway Park but nothing could have prepared Rivera for what was on the menu when he arrived at a Boston steakhouse just hours after shutting down the Red Sox at Fenway Saturday night.
Turnabout, as they say, is fair play.
It’s cold comfort, but it was certainly the case on Saturday at Fenway Park as the New York Yankees followed up their Friday night loss to the Sox by recording a 5-2 victory in the second game of the three-game stand.
With the Tampa Bay Rays edging Toronto 4-3 earlier in the day, Boston's lead...
This weekend, the Red Sox and Yankees renew their rivalry with a three-game set at Fenway Park, New York’s first visit to Boston this season. The Yankees are truly having a remarkable season (51-44, 6.0 GB in the AL East) when you consider the injuries to Mark Teixeira (wrist surgery), Curtis Granderson (fractured knuckle), Alex Rodriguez (right hip), Kevin Youkilis (herniated...
