Teixeira is hitting seventh for first time in two years Saturday, while A-Rod is benched for third time in four games. NEW YORK -- Yankees manager Joe Girardi, perhaps feeling pressure to save the season with the Aug. 1 trade deadline approaching and the front office still possibly opting to sell, has been making out some strange-looking lineup...

A-Rod has just nine homers this year NEW YORK -- There's been talk this week about the Yankees possibly cutting Alex Rodriguez if the team goes in sell-mode at the trade deadline (Aug. 1), a move that would cause the team to eat about $28 million in salary but free up a spot on the 25-man roster for a more versatile player. But a recent...

The make up of the New York Yankees might change in a big way if they decide to be sellers on the trade market. Players like Andrew Miller, Aroldis Chapman and Carlos Beltran could be moved. A few other high-profile players could also be released. “Some New York Yankees people have discussed whether, if they decide to sell, they might consider releasing great veterans Mark...
The New York Yankees continue to be stuck in the middle. They’re 48-46, good enough to stay within five games of a wild card spot and six away from the division lead.

When a superstar entering his prime years signs a long-term contract, there’s the unspoken understanding that the end won’t be pretty.

We all knew this when Albert Pujols signed his $240 million deal through his age-41 season, when Prince...
After the New York Yankees beat the Baltimore Orioles on Monday night, Alex Rodriguez talks about his home run and Carlos Beltran sidesteps trade talk.
Joe Girardi addresses the possibility of Alex Rodriguez playing 1st base.
With the 40-year-old Alex Rodriguez scuttling mightily at the plate this season, the idea has been forwarded that perhaps he conceivably could decide to take an early retirement or perhaps even accept a buyout from the New York Yankees. Evidently, neither of those scenarios are ever going to happen, according to someone in A-Rod’s camp. FanRag Sports Network’s Jon Heyman writes...
Two opposing things can be true, I believe. Superstar players are probably the last to know when they’ve come to the end of the line. Declines can be so gradual they’re tough to detect if you’re just taking things day by day. If you listen to the players, they’ll insist they remain capable, even after they’re probably not. On the other side of the coin, no one loves to...
In everyday life we most commonly think of human bodies holistically. Walking down the street we tend to see the fine folk in our path as people instead of limbs, torsos, rib cages and facial features. Things are a little different when evaluating athletes. In baseball, arms, shoulders, elbows, legs, and hands are commonly scrutinized intently by scouts, fans and front office...
