Through four innings Monday, Freddy Garcia looked like the same pitcher who had helped stabilize the New York Yankees' rotation for nearly two months since Andy Pettitte went down with a fractured leg. After Garcia's bend-but-don't-break approach worked in the first two innings against the White Sox, the veteran right-hander settled in and retired six of seven batters in the third and fourth, doing what he needed to after being staked to a 3-0 lead. Then came the fifth inning, and everything fell apart. Garcia struck out Alexei Ramirez for the first out of the inning, matching his season high with eight strikeouts. That was the last out Garcia would record. Gordon Beckham singled and Dewayne Wise homered, cutting the Yankees' lead to 3-2. Kevin Youkilis singled and Garcia walked both Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko, ending his night with the bases loaded and one out. "I'm really disappointed; I couldn't throw strikes after I got one out in the fifth...

From Bryan Hoch:The Yankees received encouraging news on Sunday regarding Alex Rodriguez and Andy Pettitte, who are both progressing toward September returns from the disabled list.
A-Rod and Pettitte had X-rays performed on their fractured left hand and fractured left fibula, respectively, and team doctors told the players that their injuries are healing as expected.
From Bryan Hoch:Pedro Feliciano hasn't thrown a pitch for the Yankees since signing a two-year, $8 million contract, but there is hope that may be about to change.
Feliciano pitched a scoreless inning on Saturday for the Gulf Coast Yankees, the lefty reliever's third outing for the club, and manager Joe Girardi is hopeful that Feliciano will be able to see time at the...
The Yankees will send the crafty right-hander, Freddy Garcia, to the hill tonight in game one of a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox. In his last outing against the Rangers, Garcia tossed 6 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on four hits while striking out six for his third consecutive win.

I just want you to know, we are losing this game. You can all go to bed.It is time to begin panic.
This Derek Jeter fan somehow finds himself in a slightly drunken dance contest on a platform. He does well at first. He even completes “The Worm” for one singular worm crawl. His problem was not simply falling off of the stage. His “Downfall” was grabbing on to a 2X4 that was not secure. He falls [...]
By now everyone knows Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda (mugshot via HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE) was arrested on suspicion of DWI in Tampa yesterday. He blew nearly twice the legal limit of...

Derek Jeter had three hits and scored twice for the Yankees, who took two of three from Boston despite playing the entire series without slugger Mark Teixeira. The AL East leaders won for the ninth time in...
The AL East-leading New York Yankees have rebounded from their rough patch.
The AL Central-leading Chicago White Sox, meanwhile, are suddenly in a little slump, and a home series against the Yankees might not be the best way to break out of it.
Surging New York could have Mark Teixeira back in the lineup as it looks to win its seventh straight game on Chicago's South Side in...
Roger Clemens signed a contract on Monday to play for the Sugar Land (Texas) Skeeters of the South Atlantic Independent League. The 50 year-old pitcher last appeared in MLB for the New York Yankees during the 2007 season.
There are several images that come to mind:

Mayday, mayday, if anybody can hear me, we are the survivors of Yankee-Oceanic Airlines Flight 2012. Our plane crashed and left us on a mysterious island for six TV seasons, and the plot has become so convoluted that we no longer recognize our own backstories. We need help. Fast. We'd forgotten about Michael Pineda, who has now turned up as a drunk. We thought Joba was killed...
