Tossing eight innings of one-run ball, borderline Hall of Fame southpaw Andy Pettitte led New York to a 4-2 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Thursday at Yankee Stadium.

Yanks Old Guard Rise to the Challenge

The walls were starting to close in on the Yankees after the first two games of the season. An 0-3 start would not have doomed their season, but combined with all the injuries the club has sustained the feeling of a lost season in the making would only have grown stronger. It would be easy to say that last night Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera turned back the clock. It would also...

Agent: Cano loves NY

  The big question, now that second baseman Robinson Cano has hired CAA and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports as his new agents, is whether the switch means that the New York Yankees stand a better chance of signing him.   Brodie Van Wagenen, who will be Cano’s primary baseball agent for CAA, didn’t answer that question directly in an interview with FOXSports.com on Tuesday night...

First Win Of The Season: Yankees Farm System Carries The Day

There is something special about watching homegrown talent succeed. That's why, even though the first win of the season is always sweet, this one, with its distinct Yankee farm flavor, was definitely one to savor.

Robinson Cano’s Hiring of Jay-Z Will Spark Trend, Increase All-Star’s Popularity Beyond Baseball

Everything Jay-Z touches turns to gold. That bodes well for Robinson Cano. Cano was apparently so intrigued by the prospect of joining the hip-hop mogul’s new agency, Roc Nation Sports, that he dumped baseball’s most powerful, outspoken, popular and demanding agent, Scott Boras. The decision could increase the Yankees’ chances of signing Cano to a new deal — as Jay-Z is an...

Series Preview: Yankees @ Tigers

After opening the season with two losses to the Red Sox, the Yankees won their first game of the season the “old” fashioned way. Two long-time Yankees locked down the win as Andy Pettitte threw eight fantastic innings leading to Mariano Rivera’s first save of the year. If the Yankees want to pick up wins this weekend in Detroit, they will have to rely on their young pitchers...

With The Loss Of Cano, Scott Boras Has Lost HIs Touch

Scott Boras has lost his touch.First, it was Alex Rodriguez who told the agent his services would no longer be needed. Then Mark Teixeira showed him the door. Now Robinson Cano has kicked Scott Boras to the curb and, if you believe the media reports, didn't even show the common courtesy of pointing the curb out to him before-hand.For so many years, all you ever heard was how...

Red Sox Look to Begin Season in Sweeping Fashion Against New York Yankees

Here we are, just two games into the season, and yet it already feels light years removed from 2012. In two games thus far in the 2013 campaign, the Red Sox are safely on pace to go 162-0, and they can continue that pace by sweeping the Yankees to begin the year in the third game of this three-game set. To do that, the Red Sox will give a fairly straightforward look in the lineup...
