Rarely do I like to criticize a fellow baseball blogger for their opinion, but unfortunately sometimes exceptions have to be made and today I am making one.
During my daily scouring of the Internet for anything baseball and New York Yankees related, I came across an article on the site Rant Sports that must be addressed.
Unless you live under a rock and don’t read the NY Daily News, starter Ivan Nova was placed on the 15-day DL over the weekend. He left Saturday’s game in the third inning to get an MRI that later revealed inflammation in his right triceps.
The Yankees called up Vidal Nuno from Triple-A to take over in the bullpen so David Phelps can make Nova’s next schedule start.
The writer of the article in question described bringing up Nuno was counte...

Last year’s National League Cy Young award winner R.A. Dickey, took the loss for the visitors despite turning in one of his best
Sure he retired last December, but, according to the New York Post, that isn't stopping the New York Yankees from offering Hideki Matsui a contract.
I'll let you make all the Yankees jokes, but, honestly, the team inking the former slugger to a one-day deal so he can ceremoniously "retire" in pinstripes is actually pretty cool.
The two-time All-Star, and...
Kevin Youkilis has joined Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the New York Yankees' disabled list.
The Yankees said Tuesday that Youkilis has a lumbar spine sprain and placed him on the 15-day DL.

The Yankees welcome in the newest members of the American League tonight – the Houston Astros – for a three-game series.

Jeter: Not watching "many games"
Well, Hideki Matsui will be returning to the Yankees.
For one day.
Plans are in the works for the Yankees to sign Matsui to a one-day contract so he can retire as a Yankee, according to George King of the New York Post. Matsui originally announced his retirement from baseball back in December.
Signed prior to the 2003 season, Matsui quickly became a fan favorite. Over his seven years...
Kevin Youkilis is out of the New York Yankees' lineup because of
a bad back, one day after his return from a six-game layoff.
R.A. Dickey had just been rocked by Lyle Overbay's two-run homer as the Toronto Blue Jays knuckleballer got ready to throw one of his gimmicky pitches to the next batter. In the New York Yankees bullpen, David Robertson — who had just caught Overbay's dinger — was warming up to preserve the 3-2 Yankees lead.
Out in front of the dugout was that next batter — Eduardo...
Andy Pettitte just failed to reach a personal milestone.

Pettitte will pitch against the only other major league team he's played for on Monday night when the Yankees go for a fifth straight win.
Trying to post victories in each of his first four starts for the first time, Pettitte...
