  6. CC: It's just like 10 years ago

    Wallace Matthews

    TAMPA, Fla. -- The numbers may say otherwise, but it has been scientifically proven that CC Sabathia is the same pitcher he was as a 22-year-old Cleveland Indian. Well, his arm angle is, anyway. Sabathia, who came to camp 40 pounds lighter a...

  7. Yankees should mess with the Johan

    Wallace Matthews

  8. Hiro on hold: Tanaka sweepstakes hits snag

    Wallace Matthews

    Wallace Matthews

    BALTIMORE -- Every day, the Yankees seem to set a new franchise record for the number of players used in one season. Today, they added No. 55 -- no, not Lyle Overbay -- but Mike Zagurski, a 30-year-old left-handed reliever, to take the role formerly ...

  11. First Pitch: The numbers don't lie

    Wallace Matthews

    Realistically, last night's 7-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays may have killed whatever hope the Yankees might have had to play at least one baseball game this October, but mathematically, they still have a chance, of course. There are 29 games lef...

  12. Nova number two?

    Wallace Matthews

    SAN DIEGO -- He's not going to replace CC Sabathia on the depth chart, but it certainly is a happy coincidence that just as the New York Yankees' former ace is losing his way on the mound, Ivan Nova has suddenly found his. After Friday night's 7-...

    Wallace Matthews

    Wallace Matthews

    TAMPA -- It is no secret that by the sheer numbers, the Yankees have too many outfielders, and when Curtis Granderson comes back in May, someone is going to have to go. Right now, the consensus pick is Ben Francisco, who, in spite of being one of ...
