  1. Money in the bank or down the drain?

    Mike Mazzeo

    The New York Yankees have always spent big. But it's starting to cost them. The Yankees have now missed the playoffs the last two seasons. Why? The team's player investments haven't produced. And, due to a combination of increasing age and i...

  2. My top 20 players for 2015

    Eric Karabell

    Washington Nationals right-hander Jordan Zimmermann ended his 2014 regular season on a significant high note by no-hitting the Miami Marlins Sunday, but it's still not enough to get him into my overall top 20 for next season. This theme has resonated...

  3. My 2014 fantasy baseball MVPs

    Eric Karabell

    When I spoke to Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley at the All-Star festivities in Minneapolis and asked him about his shocking statistical season, he made it seem like it was no big deal at all -- just a maturing player becoming smarter wi...

  4. ICYMI: SweetSpot hits of the week

    Jason Rosenberg

    A couple of scary, horrible moments Thursday night cast a pall across the league as first the otherworldly Giancarlo Stanton was drilled in the face by Mike Fiers and had to be removed from the stadium via stretcher. He suffered multiple facial fract...

  5. Cano doesn't regret bolting Yanks for M's

    Mike Mazzeo

    NEW YORK -- Robinson Cano's new team has a better record than his old team. And his old team dearly misses his bat -- at least this season. So no, Cano, who signed a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners (68-58) in the off...

  6. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...

  7. The Yankees' D-Train sets a speed record

    Wallace Matthews

    BOSTON -- As Mike Napoli fouled off pitch after pitch, Dellin Betances just couldn't resist a glance back at the big Fenway Park message board. "It was just one of those situations where he was fouling stuff off, and he was kinda late on everythin...

  8. Ellsbury, McCann beat Chapman's heat

    Mike Mazzeo

    NEW YORK -- Aroldis Chapman is baseball's premiere flamethrower, with a fastball that averages more than 100 miles per hour. On Sunday, he threw nine pitches to Jacoby Ellsbury, which registered 100, 100, 100, 102, 102, 101, 100, 101 and 101 on th...

  9. Rapid Reaction: Yankees 3, Reds 2

    Mike Mazzeo

    NEW YORK -- Now that's what you call a gift. There were three Cincinnati Reds around Brian McCann's pop fly with one out in the ninth inning. But none of them called for it. Just like that, a routine out fell in for a walk-off single, and ...

  10. Glaring holes among playoff contenders

    Buster Olney

    It's easy to imagine the Angels succeeding in October -- for seven innings, at least. Mike Trout is already widely regarded as the best player on the planet, and he is in the midst of what is arguably the best month of his career, sporting a 1.228 OP...

  11. Joe: Pearce's slide was a 'malicious play'

    Mike Mazzeo

    NEW YORK -- New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi felt Baltimore Orioles designated hitter Steve Pearce's slide into third base that caused Kelly Johnson to throw errantly to first in the eighth inning was a "malicious play." With runners on first...

  12. Teixeira (toe) 'breathing a sigh of relief'

    Mike Mazzeo

    NEW YORK -- New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira slammed his helmet down to the ground, and it went flying in the air. In that moment, as he walked off the field, Teixeira figured he had broken a couple toes again. Mark Teixei...

  13. Rapid Reaction: Orioles 8, Yankees 0

    Mike Mazzeo

    NEW YORK -- Early in his MLB career, Masahiro Tanaka has owned most hitters. Jonathan Schoop, surprisingly, isn't one of them. Schoop homered off Tanaka for the second time this season, and the New York Yankees lost to the Baltimore Orioles, ...

  15. Matsui, Damon suit up for Old-Timers' Day

    Mike Mazzeo

    NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees wouldn't have won the 2009 World Series without the contributions of both Hideki Matsui and Johnny Damon. Matsui had six RBIs in the championship-clincher, while Damon stole two bases on a single pitch in Game 4. ...

  16. ICYMI: SweetSpot hits, Week 12

    Jason Rosenberg

    We saw some wonderful performances this week, none better than Clayton Kershaw's nearly perfect no-hitter! The Royals went streaking, Mike Trout did Mike Trout things, and the Yanks got healthy in sweeping the rival BluemJays. Not all was good news, ...
