New York Yankees
NEW YORK -- Toronto Blue Jays reliever Jason Frasor had just frozen Nick Swisher on a called third strike with the bases loaded to record the second out of the eighth inning and quiet the Yankee Stadium crowd. Frasor appeared in position to escape the jam with the score still tied, but, as opponents have said all season, there is little relief in the New York Yankees lineup. So Raul Ibanez followed by drilling a 3-1 pitch into the second deck in right field for a grand slam to give the Yankees a 6-3 victory Monday night. Russell Martin also homered for the Yankees while Robinson Cano had two hits and an RBI to extend his hitting streak to a career-high 19 games. Alex Rodriguez, who was switched from third base to designated hitter after he got a stiff neck during batting practice, had his second straight two-hit game, including a double. David Robertson (1-3) pitched a scoreless eighth for the Yankees. Toronto scored a run in the ninth and got the tying run to the plate wit...

There is no ‘i’ in TEAM.
The New York Yankees were looking to sweep the LA Angels yesterday, but after a hard fought game the Halos beat the Bombers 10-8.
Of course the game went down to the last out, as the Yankees had the bases loaded and Alex Rodriguez couldn’t get the job as he popped up for the final out.
Overall a successful weekend in the Bronx as the Yankees won the...
From Connor Orr:Manager Joe Girardi did not have any definitive news on injured left fielder Brett Gardner (right elbow) Tuesday night, amid reports Gardner could be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
Girardi said he called Gardner yesterday, but couldn’t speak with him because Gardner was undergoing an MRI.
“I think he was in the MRI tube,” Girardi joked, saying...

Dear Madam or Sir,Once again, the Yankiverse is buzzing over potential trades. Because it's July, we always go through this pointless charade, like the 12 days of Christmas, wondering who we can get. And if we do cut a deal, it's immediately cheered and a year later, lambasted. This year, let's do nothing.That was the policy of perhaps the greatest GM in modern...
Some fans are extreme. Other fans take their passion to ridiculous levels. That's the case for one Yankees fan, who claims to be the Bronx Bombers' biggest supporter. His passion includes plenty of merchandise, as well as a tattoo in a rather unusual location. The superfan has a Yankees logo tattooed onto his tooth, something his dentist did as a surprise while he was undergoing...
Brett Gardner has appeared in just nine games for the Yankees this season, and none since injuring his right (non-throwing) elbow attempting a diving catch on April 17. As general manager Brian Cashman said Sunday, the Yankees barely have missed the speedy outfielder and lineup pest because of the presence of two aging players whose skill sets won't be confused with Gardner...

Toronto Blue Jays 1 — New York Yankees 6
CC Sabathia returned from the disabled list...
I offer two words to summarize the ongoing status of Yankee LF Brett Gardner's problem elbow.Quack. Quack.Good grief, what are they using to analyze it, a divining rod? Who's running the show, the team midwife? Gardner's been crocheting in front of the daytime boob tube since Tax Day, his arm wrapped in tin foil, but when he visits Marcus Welby for a monthly checkup...
Jose Bautista was worried his injury was worse.
The star slugger landed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday but was relieved to learn there's no structural damage in his ailing left wrist. He thinks he could return to Toronto's lineup as soon as he's eligible, though manager John Farrell said it's too early to tell.
''The last thing that we want is to push...
NEW YORK -- Nick Swisher doesn't usually need much reason to display his enthusiastic energy, it's easy to see why after the latest win for his New York Yankees. The Yankees peppered Toronto Blue Jays starter Ricky Romero for four runs on five hits in the first inning, including a requisite home run, in Wednesday's 6-0 rain-shortened victory at Yankee Stadium. The...
I put this episode together after the Yankees opened the second half of the 2012 season by taking 2 out of 3 against the Angels. Topics include the aftermath of Robinson Cano's horrible Home Run Derby, disappointing facts about Melky Cabrera, my disdain for Paul O'Neill (Yes, you read that right.) and Darnell McDonald's dred locs. I close things out by talking about my...
On the anniversary of Joe DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak we take a look at Joltin' Joe's career.
Joe DiMaggio, nicknamed "Joltin' Joe" and "The Yankee Clipper", played his entire 13-year career for the New York Yankees. He is perhaps best known for his 56-game hitting streak (May 15 – July 16, 1941), a record that still...
