Waiting For Next Year:
New York Yankees
Chicago White Sox
That was an unbelievable home run by Robinson Cano. Down a run in the sixth, 1-2 count against one of the hotter starters in the AL Central 1 , and he blasts one off the end of his bat for a two-run homer to the opposite field.
Can we just focus on that part of the game, please? Because with that one swing the Yankees deserved to win this contest.
But, of course, all anyone is talking about is how the Indians stranded the bases loaded in the ninth inning to end the game. So while this wasn’t as ugly a game as the last four losses, this one sure was more heartbreaking.
With the loss, Cleveland fell back to .500 on the season at 37-37, and now sits 2.5 games behind the White Sox following their victory last night.
In the ninth, the Indians hammered NY closer Rafael Soriano quickly. Lonnie Chisenhall, pinch-hitting for Carlos Santana 2 , reached base on a single and Shin-Soo Choo walked. After one out, Lou Marson also singled, bringing up pinch-hitter Johnny Damon to the plate with the...

In the first six games of the current 10-game road trip, the Indians struggled to score runs and, not surprisingly, lost most of the games. They lost five of the first six games on the trip, which concludes with a four-game series in Baltimore that began Thursday night with a 7-2 Indians victory.Going into the game, only one American League team had hit fewer home runs than the 61...
English: CC Sabathia (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
At the start of the 2012 season, I asked my father, ‘what could be the worst thing to happen to the New York Yankees this season?’
He responded without even taking a breath, “CC Sabathia getting injured.”
So when the news broke, prior to today’s third and final afternoon romp with the Cleveland Indians, that CC Sabathia was...
Before the Yankees completed a 3-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians yesterday the news broke that ace CC Sabathia was headed for the 15-DL.
And if that wasn’t enough to swallow during the 5th inning, veteran southpaw Andy Pettitte took a line drive off his left lower leg; and everyone in Yankee Stadium froze.
Pettitte threw just one more pitch; a perfect strike but the 40-year...
Someone please wake up Bud Selig or pull him away from his early bird special.
I am sitting with my Grandpa in Mantua, Ohio, watching the Yankees beat up the Indians, and I just saw one of the worst calls I have seen in a long time.
Tonight was yet another example of why Bud Selig and MLB need to stop crossing their arms and actually do something about instant replay.
That was the month that was. It's over, let it go. Oh what month it was...Possible nominees:Robinson Cano, prometheusAndy Pettitte, safety not guaranteedDerek Jeter, rock of agesDewayne Wise, think like a manPhil Hughes, that's my boyJoe Giardi, dark shadowsBrian Cashman, seeking a friend for the end of the world*Note: Not to be confused, or in any way affiliated, with fine...
The Yankees were dealt a tough injury blow on Wednesday after Andy Pettitte suffered a broken left ankle. The veteran lefty was hit on a liner up the middle by Casey Kotchman, and was unable to put weight on the leg while pitching to the next batter.
This news game on the heels of the announcement that CC Sabathia was placed on the 15 day DL with a strained groin. The Bombers will...
Last season was a banner year for second basemen in terms of fantasy baseball. The usual suspects (Cano, Pedroia, Kinsler, Phillips) all had excellent years, while guys like Ben Zobrist, Howie Kendrick, and Ryan Roberts also put up big years. Coming into 2012, second base was a position fantasy owners felt like they could count on for big production in the middle infield. Unfortunately...
New York Yankees great Don Larsen knows that college isn't cheap. He has two grandchildren set to earn their degrees in the coming years.
Larsen wants to pay for their education by auctioning off a prized possession - the uniform he wore when he pitched the only perfect game in World Series history.
Steiner Sports Memorabilia is conducting the auction this fall. People from...
Cleveland Indians 4 — New York Yankees 6 Phil Hughes threw 8 scoreless en route to a 6-4 win over the Cleveland Indians.

New York Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes struggled through a 4 1/3-inning, six-run loss against the Atlanta Braves last week, so he took the mound Tuesday looking for improvement against the Cleveland Indians. "Larry and I always talk about bounce-back outings," said Hughes, referring to pitching coach Larry Rothschild. "You try to put together as many good ones...
So Chris Perez is confused about Cleveland fans again. We’ve already been over the Indians closer’s incredibly myopic complaints about attendance at Progressive Field that he renewed in a recent interview with Tyler Kepner of the New York Times, but now Perez is complaining about the attendance at Cleveland Browns Stadium as well.
“I don’t understand,” Perez told Kepner...
