New York Yankees
Derek Jeter scored on a passed ball with one out in the ninth inning and the New York Yankees rallied to hand the Tigers their fifth straight loss, 7-6 on Friday night, hours after Detroit left fielder Delmon Young was arraigned on a hate crime harassment charge.
Alex Rodriguez homered and drove in two runs, Russell Martin hit a two-run homer and the Yankees bullpen held steady when Ivan Nova turned in the latest shaky performance by a New York starter.
Jeter drew a one-out walk from Brayan Villarreal (0-1) and went to third when Villarreal threw a wild pitch on ball four to Curtis Granderson. With Rodriguez up, Villarreal's 2-0 pitch glanced off catcher Alex Avila's glove and Jeter barely beat Avila's throw to Villarreal at the plate.
Mariano Rivera (1-1), the fourth Yankees reliever, worked a perfect ninth for the win. The bullpen pitched 3 2-3 scoreless innings.
The Tigers came to New York having lost six of seven at home and a day after they cut popular infielder...

Coming home after losing the last two games of a road trip is never a good feeling.
Returning to face the 2011 MVP and CY Young award winner Justin Verlander makes that losing feeling never go away.
That is the New York Yankees reality today, as they finished their road trip 3-3 and now have to host the Detroit Tigers for a three game set.
You would think that facing Verlander...
It looks like Derek Jeter might have found a new flame to go with his new swing.
The New York Yankees shortstop was joined by an attractive new female friend during a night out with the boys Thursday at a Manhattan restaurant reports Page Six of The New York Post.
Jeter was seen having dinner at STK Midtown with a male buddy at about 8 p.m. but then left through the back door before...
We relish a little raging infidelity in sports. We pretend not to, of course, regurgitating Nancy Grace-ish hostility and disappointment about whatever athlete or coach happens to be sleeping with someone who isn't his wife at any given moment.
We are just as sincere as Grace, a sanctimonious, whiny blowhard, which is to say not at all.
Claiming moral superiority is physically...
The Detroit Tigers eliminated the New York Yankees in the opening round of the playoffs last fall.
Justin Verlander was responsible for one of those victories, but he hasn't been nearly as effective in the Bronx.

Justin Verlander hops with Prince Fielder to try and will him to be able to jump and catch a liner, but to no avail. Luckily for Everett Teaford, Alex Gordon needed no help in robbing a homer, leaving the pitcher in disbelief
It was a rough start to the season for Jon Lester. On Opening Day, he drew the difficult match up against Justin Verlander. After tossing seven frames of one-run ball, the lefty ultimately received the loss when Verlander outpitched him. Since then, Lester wasn’t quite himself, yielding at least five runs in each of his last two starts. His outing against the Rangers on April 17...

The Factor12 Rating (F12) is an analytic measurement utilizing league average performance to compare the value of all MLB pitchers.
Justin Verlander continued his dominating start to the 2012 season by throwing up a line of 6IP / 4H / 0ER / 3BB / 8K against the Texas Rangers this week. The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner currently holds the number one position on the F12 list...

Some players are just entering or in the midst of their prime. Guys like Josh Hamilton and Matt Kemp came out slugging to start the year and are early MVP candidates for their respective leagues a month into the season. Meanwhile, there are two guys who supposedly had their best baseball behind them who are off to arguably the hottest starts of their careers. Yes, AL East haters...
