BEST OF MAXIM
All season long, the New York Yankees have been waiting to race with all their horses. And just when it looked like the barn was finally healthy, their thoroughbred has gone lame.
Hiroki Kuroda has faltered for the first time all season.
Hiroki Kuroda, the team’s de facto ace since April, has stunningly fallen apart in his past two starts. After pitching brilliantly for four and...
Alex Rodriguez in 2005
On this day in history eight years ago, Alex Rodriguez joined an exclusive club. He became just the second right-handed hitter EVER in the long line of Yankee sluggers to hit 40 home runs in a season, joining Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio who hit 46 round-trippers in 1937 which was the only time he accomplished that feat. A-Rod hit at least 40 in one other season...
As the month of September approaches in the coming days, teams will be allowed to expand their active roster from the typical 25-man to a 40-man roster setup. While contenders are able to garner further talent to bolster their respective lineups and pitching staffs down the stretch, non-contending teams have the prime opportunity to evaluate some of their top prospects.
Robinson Cano is back in the Yankees’ lineup Friday against the Orioles.
Robbie Cano hasn’t played since being hit on the left hand by a pitch earlier this week on Tuesday. Cano returns with a .305/.385/.506 batting line with 24 homers and 85 RBI.
Cano has hit indoors. He will hit and take grounders during BP to make sure he can play. He expects to be in there. #yankees...
The Yankees kick off a tough 10 game home stand with the Orioles in town, as CC Sabathia (11-11, 4.81 ERA) goes head to head with Miguel Gonzalez (8-6, 3.77 ERA). Sabathia looked liked the ace of old for five innings his last time out, against the Rays, but it all came to a halt in the three run sixth that cost the Yankees. The big lefty said the whole season has felt like “one...
About 45 minutes before today’s Yankees/Orioles matchup began, the Yankees announced that third baseman Alex Rodriguez would be a late scratch for today’s game. The team says that the reason is due to “flu-like symptoms”.
Mark Reynolds (who was slated to start at first base) replaced Rodriguez at third, and Lyle Overbay came off the bench to play first. In the original...
The New York Yankees welcomed second baseman Robinson Cano
back into their starting lineup last night as they opened their weekend series
against the Baltimore Orioles. While New York saw Cano return from his bruised
hand, infielder Eduardo Nunez remained sidelined due to his lingering knee
injury, according to Josh Vitale of MLB.com.
Cano and Nunez both suffered their...
Let me preface this piece by saying in no way is this a pro-Yankee stance, and that I will never steal buy a Joe Pepitone jersey. I also promise to never partake in the suite-service of the Legends seats that sit directly behind home plate. I will never accept free tickets to do this! It’s terrible that you can eat high-quality shrimp and lobster while watching one of the...
Wednesday night marked the first time this season Robinson Cano wasn’t in the Yankees lineup but the All-Star second baseman said he is hopeful he can return for tomorrow night’s game against the Orioles at Yankee Stadium.
“The swelling has decreased now we have to wait until Friday. It’s good we’re off tomorrow” Cano said before the Yankees’ 7-2 loss to the Blue Jays...
Ivan Nova (7-4, 3.14 ERA) leads the charge for October against Scott Feldman (4-3, 4.56 ERA) in a matinee showdown in the Bronx. Nova’s last start against the Rays was erratic, he tied a career high with six walks but still managed to hold them to just two runs and six hits over 6 2/3 innings in a no decision. He has completed at least six innings in nine consecutive starts, and...
The New York Yankees have already taken two of three games against the Baltimore Orioles, with tomorrow still to play, and are now four games out from owning one the American League wild card spots.
Friday night the Yankees had won 8-5 in large part due to long balls by Alfonso Soriano and Ichiro along with some key hits by Robinson Cano and Mark Reynolds. Although CC Sabathia was...
Ten games at home. We need to win eight.Anybody wanna buy a bridge? Starting now, A-Rod must hit in the clutch. Beginning this weekend, Phil Hughes - or whomever it is - must be lights-out. In a few hours, Robbie's hand must heal. Maybe Slade Heathcott will jell! We must play better than we have all season. Eight out of ten. No problemo. Then, we need to drive to Baltimore and...
Ivan Nova threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout, Robinson Cano had an RBI double in the first and homered in the eighth as the New York Yankees edged Baltimore 2-0 Saturday for their second straight win over the Orioles.

Ivan “Super” Nova was outstanding in today’s 2-0 shutout win over the Baltimore Orioles.
Ivan Nova got into early trouble when he hit Adam Jones with a pitch and Matt Wieters hit a bloop single in front of Ichiro Suzuki. Nova would induce a double play and got a fly out to escape the jam.
Brett Gardner got the offense started with a double...
The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles have had their playoff hopes dented recently.
CC Sabathia shoulders some of that blame for the Yankees.
New York looks for some dramatic improvement from its struggling ace as it begins a vital stretch that could determine its postseason fate Friday night against the Orioles.
The Yankees (70-63) have lost four of six and are 2 1/2 games...
