IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
New York Yankees
Boston Red Sox
Yesterday, the Yankees signed Derek Lowe, D-Lowe, a flesh-and-blood reminder of the fourth worst ***** ass choke in known human history, (after Goliath v. David, Aztec Nation v. Cortez, Spanish Armada v. Whomever, and tied with Hootie and Blowfish's second album; this is outlined extensively in my book, BTW.) It happened on our watch. It can never be erased from memory.We signed Lowe because CC Sabathia tweaked his hammy elbow, and we have nobody in the farm aside from Adam Warren - who nearly threw a no-hitter for Scranton last week, but who failed in an audition two months ago and who will never receive another shot as long as the rivers flow and the subways smell like urine. We won the 2009 World Series because Johnny Damon - one of our former Redsock torturers - stole two bases on one pitch. This was an especially delicious moment because Boston chased Damon out of town, figuring to save money with Jacoby Ellsbury, whom they will chase out of town next winter, figuiring to ...
BEST OF MAXIM
From Dan Martin:
The Yankees made Derek Lowe’s signing official Monday and the veteran right-hander is expected to be added to the bullpen for the series opener against the Rangers in The Bronx.
Ryota Igarashi was optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes Barre to make room for Lowe on the roster.Lowe, who went 8-10 with a 5.52 ERA in 21 starts with the Indians, will be used...
With two hits on Saturday, New York Yankees team captain Derek Jeter tied Hall of Famer Hank Aaron for a Major league record of 17 consecutive seasons with 150 hits or more.
After singling earlier in the game, Jeter hit an RBI ground-rule double in the sixth inning of New York’s 5-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays to tie Aaron’s record.
Jeter’s streak began in 1996, his rookie...
The Yankees signed Derek Lowe to a major league contract on Monday and said they planned to use the right-hander in the bullpen.
Lowe, a 39-year-old sinkerballer, has spent time as a reliever, but mostly has pitched in the rotation for various teams, most recently the Indians. Cleveland designated him for assignment on Aug. 2 and released him on Friday.
Lowe has a 4.01 ERA in 655...
New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia might miss his next start because of soreness in his left elbow. The New York Daily News reported that Sabathia's elbow has been sore since his last outing against the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday. He allowed five runs (three earned) and struck out seven batters over 6 2/3 innings in the win. Sabathia was seen with an ice pack on his left elbow...
Well this is concerning news for Yankees fans.
Girardi said CC will go on the DL.

It seems that CC Sabathia is having elbow inflammation, but Girardi isn’t really concerned. Watching the YES post-game interviews, to paraphrase Girardi said that if this were October, then CC would take the mound on Monday.
It seems the Yankees...
So apparently a lot happened while I was eating an early dinner....
First, the Yankees announced that CC Sabathia is going on the 15-day DL with left elbow soreness. “As for our concern, it’s pretty low-level,” Joe Girardi said.
Sabathia had his left arm iced before today’s game, which is not overly unusual for a pitcher. Girardi said pregame that it was a non-issue...
Ivan Nova snapped a five-start winless streak, Casey McGehee hit a three-run home run and the New York Yankees won their fourth straight game Saturday, beating the Toronto Blue Jays 5-2.
Derek Jeter had two hits, boosting his AL-leading total to 150 and joining Hank Aaron as the only players to record 17 straight seasons with at least 150 hits.
Rajai Davis had two hits and scored...

Yankees Acquire Derek Lowe
The New York Yankees wasted no time finding another arm to pitch while C.C Sabathia is on the DL with elbow inflammation acquiring the 39 year old Derek Lowe.
Lowe was pitching for the Cleveland Indians before being designated for assignment on Saturday. He wasn’t pitching very well for the Indians in their rotation going 8-10 with...
Ben and Sam discuss the impact of CC Sabathia's elbow soreness on the Yankees' short- and long-term outlooks, and the difference between winning a division and winning a wild card under the new playoff format.
