Yankees lose ALCS opener, Jeter out with broken ankle

The Yankees got a pair of big two-run home runs in the bottom of the ninth inning by Ichiro Suzuki and Raul Ibanez to tie the game at 4-4, but lost the game in extra innings as they lost 6-4 to drop the first game of the ALCS. Losing the game was bad, but perhaps even ...

What’s wrong with the Yankees?

The Yankees came out of the All-Star break the same way they went into it, winning lots of games, but unfortunately after they took six of seven games they haven't been the same since.

Girardi likes platoon if Gardner doesn’t come back

Brett Gardner's injury initially wasn't expected to be severe at all. A DL stint and two setbacks later and the Yankees are talking as if he might never come back. When speaking with reporters on Tuesday, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that he doesn't feel like the Yankees necessarily need to trade for an outfielder if ...
