I guess that’s an okay FA...

How the New York Yankees will make the playoffs

The New York Yankees missed out on the playoffs for the 2nd time in nineteen years last spring. This year there is still a chance for the boys in stripes.

Yankees game 13 lineup: 4/13/14

The Yankees go for the series win tonight, as Ivan Nova faces off against Felix Doubront. Derek Jeter, who was out of the lineup yesterday to rest, is not in tonight’s lineup either.

Game time: 8:05 pm ET – Yankee...
