CC Sabathia continues to make progress

C+C+Sabathia+New+York+Yankees+v+Baltimore+PxwI7LxUiCOl

Stephen+Drew+New+York+Yankees+v+Baltimore+0fQpiFkOYizl

When Stephen Drew hit a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning which propelled the Yankees to a 6-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles, I tweeted my thoughts on Drew by comparing him to a simple analogy: Stephen Drew is that puppy your kid asks for but at first you say no. Then he does an ...

Which means, Alex Rodriguez has 655 home runs in his career and is only five homers behind Willie Mays on the all-time home runs list. If Rodriguez ties Mays--which is almost a ...

Toronto+Blue+Jays+v+New+York+Yankees+JKJTUQQZI1el

I spent the last few hours combing through Twitter, finding interesting tidbits on how the Yankees played over their first five games of the season. It's not a secret the Yankees have played sloppy baseball; the defense has been horrible, the offense is non-existent and the pitching has been so-so (starters and relievers included). But ...

Chasen Shreve optioned to Triple-A

Chasen+Shreve+San+Diego+Padres+v+Atlanta+Braves+30zNAjU9Q98l

"Chasen Shreve. You pitched a heck of a game last night...but despite your crisp 3.1 innings of work, you threw too many pitches and the Yankees needed another pitcher in the pen for today's game. And for those reasons...you were chopped." Okay, so I don't think that's how the conversation in Joe Girardi's office actually went, ...
