Last night at Yankee Stadium someone ran out onto the field during the Twins-Yankees game. Just as other TV networks do, the YES Network cameras did not show the jerk in action. They instead kept their focus on the Yankees, who were in the field at the time. A few seconds into the distraction they zoomed in on CC Sabathia, standing on the mound, watching security trying to catch...

It was a double whammy in the Bronx, as the New York Yankees lost to the Minnesota Twins for the second time this week 5-6; and minutes after the game ESPN New York’s Andrew Marchand tweeted that...
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park on Friday, the Yankees will wear a different road uniform.
The New York Yankees are off to a .500 start in the 2012 season. The team is playing .500 both on the road and at home. A few days ago there was a big deal made out of the Yankees fans booing Tim Tebow and Dwayne Wade. I wonder of the fans were switching the focus from the team to the people in attendance. The New York Yankees have been a great team for years. The Yankees have won...
It was before the Yankees' second game of the season -- just 24 hours into their reconnaissance mission against the Rays (which, by the way, ended in a disastrous sweep). Derek Jeter took one look at the lineup card and saw he'd been busted down a rank to DH for the day.
Jeter never said a word about the enforced rest, but the expression on his face required no forensic...
The New York Yankees are set to switch up their road uniforms for the first time as part of Friday's celebration of Fenway Park's 100-year anniversary.
The road grays will have the Yankees logo on it, instead of the trademark "NEW YORK" across the front.
The jerseys are modeled after the ones worn by the 1912 New York Highlanders, which officially became the Yankees...
LAST GAME vs. TWINS:

The New York Yankees are down 1-2 games to the Minnesota Twins, so at best they can split the four-game set but that entails winning the game tonight.
Winning is something the Yankees know how to do, and especially...

He singled in the sixth inning in his bid for his fourth consecutive home run.
It was the first...

Sabathia (1-0) allowed three runs and four hits in 7 1-3 innings with seven strikeouts and one walk. After falling...
