Michael+Pineda+New+York+Yankees+v+Baltimore+Hy3MsAQM0Qil

Since Michael Pineda returned to the disabled list, he hasn't allowed more than two runs in his last five starts, not to mention he has a 1.80 ERA in nine starts entering tonight's match-up against the Tampa Bay Rays. In a game the Yankees need to win, they feel more than comfortable handing Pineda the ball. “He’s ...

Derek Jeter 23

This has been a topic of discussion in Yankees land today, and some Yankees fans (myself included) believe it would be a better move to have the struggling Derek Jeter (who hit .207 in August) move down in the order. Joe Girardi moved Jorge Posada down in the lineup in 2011 and he flat-out benched ...

A reminder to everyone, tonight's game is on My9 but the Yankees post game will be on YES Network.  Carlos Beltran: Beltran had planned to be ready to play tonight, but Joe Girardi thought against it and went with Brian McCann as the DH. Instead, Beltran ...
