WATCH: Yankees turn first triple play of 2014 MLB season

For a pitcher, there is no better gift than a triple play.  Two on, no out, big inning pending.  Then it all goes away thanks to tags, throws, and gloves.  Watch as the New York Yankees clean up the 2nd inning for ace C.C. Sabathia by going around the horn, Yangervis Solarte, to Brian Roberts, to Scott Sizemore, who made a nice scoop in the dirt.  That’s 5-4-3 if you’re scoring...

Yankees turn triple play on Tampa Bay

Yangervis Solarte helped bail CC Sabathia out of trouble in the 2nd inning of New York’s game against the Rays tonight, starting off a classic around-the-horn triple play. As it turns out, Sabathia is no stranger to triple plays while he’s on the mound: The Yankees have turned 3 triple plays since 2010. All 3 with CC Sabathia on the mound.

Mark Teixeira "definitely a possibility" for Sunday

After spending the entire offseason worried about his wrist and how it would affect his swing, Mark Teixeira couldn't have figured that a hamstring would prevent him from playing this year.

George Steinbrenner Should Be In The Hall Of Fame

George Steinbrenner was known for his controversial ways during his 37-year tenure as owner of the New York Yankees (via nymag) If there is any owner who deserves to be in the Baseball Hall of Fame, it has to be George Steinbrenner. He changed the way owners run their teams. Steinbrenner was a very involved owner. No one had been like that up to that point. Most owners before Steinbrenner...

What version of Mark Teixeira can the Yankees tolerate?

Mark Teixeira can return to the Yankees as early as Sunday, but return as what? He has fallen – physically and statistically – but to where? The offensive identity of Teixeira lingers as a key question to this season. With recent imports such as Carlos Beltran, Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann and Alfonso Soriano present, it might not be necessary for Teixeira to be a huge weightlifter...

Daily Fantasy - Evan Longoria vs CC Sabathia

The Tampa Bay Rays are in the Bronx to play a 4 game set with the New York Yankees, and they will not have to face one of Masahiro Tanaka or Michael Pineda.  But tonight it's David Price vs CC Sabathia and that means the Rays bats could come alive!  Sabathia has faced the Rays 14 times in the past 3 seasons, more than any other team.  Over those starts, he is just 3 and 8...

Tanaka and Pineda are about to become THE NEXT BIG THING

It's already happened to me: A start by CC Sabathia, Ivan Nova or Hiroki Kuroda has become a yawner. What's the point? We know what will happen. CC will give up three, maybe four runs, and he will keep us in games, until he hits an iceberg in August, and needs a rest. Nova will throw well one day, then get bombed. Kuroda will be lights out, until Joe leaves him in too long...
