NEW YORK -- Hiroki Kuroda gave the New York Yankees exactly what they needed. Dewayne Wise continued to give them more than they expected in a wild week for the little-used defensive sub. Kuroda cooled off the red-hot Chicago White Sox and stabilized the reeling Yankees rotation with a dominant start in New York's 4-0 win at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. With two of the club's top starters placed on the disabled list Wednesday and the bullpen taxed from Chicago's 14-7, 19-hit pounding Friday, Kuroda threw seven shutout innings, tying a career-high with 11 strikeouts. Wise also continued his week of cult hero status by tying his career-high with three hits, and hitting his second homer of the week, and the season. The rare power display came amid a week in which Wise also was ruled to make a catch of a foul ball he dropped in the stands, and pitched 2/3 hitless innings in relief to spare the Yankees' bullpen in Friday's rout. Curtis Granderson hit his 23rd h...

Derek Jeter hit a leadoff double in the first inning Friday night for his 3,185th hit, moving past Cal Ripken Jr. for 13th place on the career list.
The 38-year-old Jeter grew up watching the former Baltimore shortstop and has often been likened to the Hall of Famer, playing the same position and spending his entire time with one team.
Right after the milestone hit against the...
During Saturday afternoon's sweltering matinee in Yankee Stadium, Derek Jeter turned to avoid getting hit in the jewels by an inside pitch and— when replayed in slow-motion— it kind of looks like he was doing the Watusi or some other dance from the '60's.
Whether or not Jake Peavy's fifth-inning throw was intentional, Jeter just shook it a little more and took...
Did Spiderman just fly out of CC Sabathia’s derriere?
What better way to advertise for the new Spiderman movie than to have the webbed-wonder shoot out of a 300lb pitcher’s a$$? You have to commend the New York Yankees and Warner Brothers Studios for their interesting new advertising campaign.

Phil Hughes fought the 95 degrees on the thermometer with zeros on the scoreboard.
Hughes pitched eight efficient innings, Robinson Cano hit a tiebreaking two-run homer after wasting a chance with the bases loaded his first time up and the New York Yankees again rode the long ball to a 4-2 win Sunday over the Chicago White Sox for a series split between division leaders.

If you look carefully, you'll see a former Yankee fraud prospect named, Warren,sitting with hands folded in his lap, just behind the driver's farting ass.Well deserved.Out of town. Out of my line of sight.
Injuries sidelining Yankee stars Andy Pettitte and CC Sabathia didn't dampen Derek Jeter's 38th birthday celebration in New York.

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By TIM DAHLBERG AP Sports Columnist This wasn't Little League, so Dewayne Wise wasn't about to fess up. Sportsmanship only goes so far when you're wearing pinstripes and playing in Yankee Stadium.
Wise sold the third base umpire just by diving into the stands to catch a foul ball. For good measure, he held his glove in the air in triumph and gave...

In the first inning of Sunday's Yankees-White Sox game, Robinson Cano grounded into a double play off Gavin Floyd. In the third inning, he worked his way into a 3-1 count. Here's what happened then:
That's an ugly swing, especially in a hitter's count. Cano certainly thought so.
That prompted this exchange between YES Network broadcasters Michael Kay...

With two regulars missing from their rotation, the New York Yankees could sorely use some better performances from Freddy Garcia than the last time he was in the rotation.
A visit to the struggling Tampa Bay Rays might help Garcia ease back into a starting role and enable the Yankees to end their seven-game skid at Tropicana Field on Monday night.
New York (48-30) suffered two...
To make room for Quallls on the 40-man roster the Yankees have designated Matt Antonelli for assignment.
The 33-year-old was 1-1 with a 4.60 ERA in 35 games for the Phillies this season. In 31.1 innings, the right-hander allowed 16 ER on 39 hits, walked 9, and struck out 19.
