Despite troubles, Yankees could still find a way to win AL East

Derek Jeter 22

The Yankees have played mediocre baseball throughout the first half of the season, but they have one thing going for them as they prepare for the second half of the season: The entire American League East has flaws.

Would the Yankees been better off with Cano and Granderson?

Curtis+Granderson+Robinson+Cano

We all know the story of the 2013 off season: Robinson Cano left the Yankees to go to the Seattle Mariners for a 10-year contract and Curtis Granderson went crosstown to the New York Mets.

During yesterday's game, it would have made sense to have David Robertson come on the mound for the four out save, territory that former closer Mariano Rivera had seen before.

Girardi and Jeter react to Cano’s reception in the Bronx

Robinson Cano 24

Last night, Robinson Cano made his return to Yankee Stadium as a member of the Seattle Mariners--and let's just say like the weather, the reception for him was the same: chilly.

Would fans boo or cheer Cano?

Robinson Cano 23

Well, the tarp's on the field right now, so for some light reading, I decided to add my 'Would fans boo or cheer Cano' post now.
