MLB Playoffs: New York Yankees Need To Drop Alex Rodriguez And Change Batting Order In ALDS For Game 3

Machado not playing like a rookie

With one out in the 13th inning of Thursday night's ALDS Game 4, Orioles rookie Manny Machado stood at third base with Yankees star Alex Rodriguez -- pupil and teacher, side by side with a game and a series on the line. It was an improbable setting and an unlikely situation for the 20-year-old Machado. After all, just about two years ago -- before he was the third pick in the...

Girardi won't say if slumping A-Rod will stay in No. 3 lineup spot

With one hit and five strikeouts through nine at-bats in the American League Division Series, New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez hasn't been performing like a middle-of-the-order hitter.

Ibanez hits for A-Rod, homers twice in Yankees win

Down by a run in an all-even AL division series, Joe Girardi approached Alex Rodriguez and told baseball's highest-paid player he was going to pinch hit for him. Bold move, benching one of the game's great sluggers. ''I just had a gut feeling,'' the Yankees manager said. ''I just went to him and I said, `You're scuffling a little bit right now...

Vote: Should Raul Ibanez Start Over Alex Rodriguez for the Yankees in Game 4?

Pinch-hitting for Alex Rodriguez -- who many predicted would someday hold that title -- in the bottom of the ninth, Ibanez launched a home run into the right-field stands at Yankee Stadium to tie the game. Then, improbably, impossibly, he hit another in the 12th inning, sending New York into a frenzy and the Yankees...

Orioles-Yankees Preview

For all of his home runs, All-Star accolades and huge salaries, Alex Rodriguez finds himself in a most familiar spot this season. A-Rod is an October lightning rod. With every swing and miss, memories of his amazing run during the New York Yankees' championship season in 2009 fade even further. Instead, fans are becoming more and more vocal, calling for manager Joe Girardi...

Raul is cool, A-Rod gets pulled, and the Yankees win

What a night! Squawker Jon and I were on the phone in the ninth inning, when we saw that Raul Ibanez had taken Alex Rodriguez's place in the lineup. We barely had time to digest it when we saw that Ibanez hit a homer to tie the game. Then, to make things even more unbelievable, he of course did something that has never been done in a postseason game before -- hitting a home run...

Yankees' lineup in question heading into Game 3

The team that scored more runs this season than anyone except the Texas Rangers has a problem with its offense. And it remains to be seen what the New York Yankees do to try to fix it.
