Here's a few quick notes before the Yankees take on the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards. Remember, the game isn't on YES tonight, it's on WPIX (or if you're in the New York area, the channel's called PIX 11). For those that can't find WPIX, the game is also on ESPN as part of their ...

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 ...

How poorly have the Yankees played over the last five games?

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

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, ...

Yankees turn to CC Sabathia in series finale vs. Blue Jays

CC Sabathia 5

With the first series finale just hours away, the Yankees are sending their former ace to the mound in CC Sabathia. Sabathia hadn't pitched well during the Spring, which was the reason he didn't make the Opening Day start and Masahiro Tanaka was dubbed the starter instead. Sabathia makes his season debut tonight, and this ...

The Good and The Bad: 8th inning, Martin, Miller and Pineda

Toronto+Blue+Jays+v+New+York+Yankees+ZBjUKXwwz4Fl

If there was one word to describe last night's Yankees game, it would have to be "bizarre". For the first seven innings, it seemed the Bronx Bombers would have their second straight loss but after an unconventional rally, the Yankees got their first victory of the 2015 season and all was right in Yankee-land. With ...

Toronto+Blue+Jays+v+New+York+Yankees+7VMorFwqC1Cl

Over the years, the Yankees have had the oddest rallies. And the Yankees added to the "oddest rally list" when they scored three runs in the eighth without a ball leaving the infield. The rally and Michael Pineda pitching six strong innings led to the Yankees beating the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 at Yankee Stadium ...
