New York Yankees: Please don’t ruin Phelps too

Does anyone else find Yankees pitching prospect David Phelps’ story eerily familiar? Phil Hughes; April 29, 2008 at Yankee Stadium. Getting tossed around like a rag doll between the rotation, bullpen and minors all season. Not be allotted the chance to settle into a roll. Pre-set pitching/innings limit. Getting stretched multiple times as a starter. Excuse me, as the above...

Yankees Game 118: Bullpen Struggles in Defeat

Texas Rangers 10 — New York Yankees 6   The bullpen surrendered 6 runs in the 10-6 loss to the Texas Rangers.   Ivan Nova had two brief instances in which he struggled through his 5.2 innings. Nova gave up 2 runs early on a two-run single by Adrian Beltre. He ran into trouble in the 3rd inning when the bases were loaded with no outs on a Mike Olt double and two walks. Nova was...

MLB Power Rankings: August 17 and Yankees claim the top spot again

Wow!  New York Yankees (Photo credit: Keith Allison) What an exciting time for baseball, as these last 6-weeks will be about as competitive as ever. The New York Yankees are back on the top again this week because with all their injuries, most recently to ace CC Sabathia, this team is still winning. The Bronx Bombers went 3-1 vs. the Texas Rangers this past week, and were the...

Yankees SS Jeter's home run puts him in elite company

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter's solo homer in the bottom of the fifth inning Friday against the visiting Boston Red Sox was his 250th of his career. Jeter joins Craig Biggio, Rickey Henderson and Willie Mays as the only players in major league history with 3,000 hits, 300 steals and 250 homers. Jeter's homer tied the game 4-4.

Andruw Jones Falls Down on the Job

Andruw Jones was once one of the greatest defensive outfielders in baseball history. While the Gold Glove is an inherently flawed award, for reference sake, Jones at one point in his career won 10 straight for his work in center field. Now 35, Jones has been relegated to playing left field in a part-time role with the Yankees. Apparently with good reason after losing a fly ball in...

Nick Swisher Turns 'Rainmaker' on Full Blast, Powering Yankees to Homer-Happy Win (Video)

Nick Swisher was making it rain on Friday night -- in a baseball sense. The Yankees first baseman blasted two home runs off Red Sox pitching, two out of five home runs launched by the Bronx Bombers as they lived up to their billing. All of the blasts were of the solo variety, so the damage could have been much worse, but it was damage enough. NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is upset...

Yankees Game 117: Freddy Wins Despite 2 Hamilton Homers

Texas Rangers 2 — New York Yankees 3 Josh Hamilton’s one-man offense was not enough in the 3-2 win over the Texas Rangers. Freddy Garcia went 6.2 strong innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits while striking out 6. The Rangers scored off the bat of just one batter, Josh Hamilton. He took Garcia deep for a home run in the 4th inning and an even deeper home run in the 6th inning...

Andruw Jones loses ball in sun, falls to ground

New York Yankees outfielder Andruw Jones lost a Josh Hamilton fly ball in the sun at Yankee stadium on Thursday. This happens occasionally, even in the majors. What doesn’t normally happen is the player hitting the ground in a heap and staying there after misplaying the ball. Glad to see those sunglasses help.

Yankeetorial: The best part of last night's game...

We didn't have to pay $51 million for the rights just to negotiate with Hiroki Kuroda. And his final bill won't cost us $110 million. Gotta give Brian Cashman credit there. When you look at Texas, sometimes you see the Yankees under Steinbrenner in the early 1980s. They have the best lineup in baseball, and they chase every star who comes available - Yu Darvish, Roy Oswalt...

Yankees shut down Rangers again, have shot at sweep

NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees have followed a consistent formula in turning their showdown series against the Texas Rangers into a chance at a four-game sweep. Nick Swisher again had a big hit, Freddy Garcia gave the Yankees another strong start and Eric Chavez continued his hot hitting as the Yankees beat the Rangers 3-2 in a game delayed one hour and 45 minutes by rain Wednesday...

Texas' 8-year drough vs. Yankees continues

NEW YORK (AP) -- Freddy Garcia worked around two homers by Josh Hamilton to remain undefeated against Texas for eight years and the New York Yankees beat the Rangers for the third straight night, 3-2 on Wednesday. Hamilton became the second player to reach 100 RBIs this season -- Detroit's Miguel Cabrera was first -- with his career-high 33rd homer, a line drive to right in...

Garcia Shines in Win Over Rangers

Yankees vs. Rangers Post Game Recap 8/15 The Yankees were able overcome a long rain delay to get their third straight win over the Texas Rangers beating them 3-2. Freddy Garcia was very good against the frightening Texas lineup in earning his 7th win of the season. Garcia went 6.2 innings allowing four hits, one walk, two runs, and had six strikeouts. The only runs Texas was able...

Yankees use home runs to down Red Sox

NEW YORK -- Dustin Pedroia rounded first, then stopped, hopping up and down in frustration, as he suddenly had no chance to keep moving forward. Neither did the struggling Boston Red Sox for another night as New York Yankees center fielder Curtis Granderson caught Pedroia's eighth-inning bid for a game-tying, second home run at the warning track. Instead, Nick Swisher'...

Rangers 10, Yankees 6

NEW YORK -- After dropping the first three games of their series against fellow top American League contender New York Yankees, the Texas Rangers survived a wild, back-and-forth game to salvage the finale Thursday. Texas eventually prevailed with a 10-6 win at Yankee Stadium, after blowing an early 4-0 lead. The Rangers pounded out 16 hits, with eight players providing at least...
