New York Yankees: 3 pressing questions for the second half

New York Yankees: five positives from the first half

With the first half of the Major League Baseball season in the books, the New York Yankees couldn’t be in a much better position than what they are presently in.

Although baseball...

Wade Miley’s Disputable Balk Sets Stage For Red Sox’s Loss To Yankees

BOSTON — Home plate umpire Angel Hernandez apparently saw something others didn’t. Hernandez called a balk on Red Sox starter Wade Miley in the fifth inning of Boston’s 8-6 loss to the New York Yankees on Sunday at Fenway Park. The call wasn’t exactly the difference in the game — it enabled the Yankees to tie the score 3-3 — but it was questionable at best. And Miley...

Without A-Rod in the Yankee lineup, should anyone expect more than three hits?

When your No. 3 hitter is Brian McCann - batting .260, with the lightning speed of Ethel Merman needing to pee - don't expect to score runs.OK, nothing personal against McCann.. but No. 3? Yikes.
