BALTIMORE -- I was joking with Chris Young when he came into the visiting clubhouse at Camden Yards before the start of Friday's doubleheader against the AL East leading Baltimore Orioles. "You like that American League pitching, huh?" "A littl...Blog | September 12, 2014Wallace Matthews
BALTIMORE -- A beautiful day for baseball ended ugly -- at least the first half of it -- for the Yankees when a first-pitch, bases-loaded double by pinch-hitter Jimmy Paredes off Adam Warren in the 11th inning gave the Orioles a 2-1 walk-off victory ...Blog | September 12, 2014Wallace Matthews
BALTIMORE -- It figures that just when the Yankees are starting to hit, and win important games, Joe Girardi is having trouble finding enough healthy players to send out on the field. No Derek Jeter (hit on elbow by pitch last night), no Chase Headle...Blog | September 12, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- Yes, there are still 20 games left in the season, so it may seem a bit early to start looking ahead to 2015. But considering the Yankees' situation -- 5 .5 games out of the last AL wild-card spot -- and the way the team has been pl...Blog | September 10, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- It was as close as Joe Girardi has ever come to criticizing one of his own players. "[If] I'm the baserunner, I'm going to run him over there," Girardi said. "I'm going to lower my shoulder, and I'm going to run him over." The manag...Blog | September 10, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- Another game, another loss, another day closer to the end of the season for the Yankees. At least in this one, they made a fight of it. But with the way their offense has struggled this season, once the Rays went ahead 4-0 after four i...Blog | September 09, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- No Brett Gardner and no Martin Prado tonight as the Yankees enter the final phase of their 2014 season, 21 games in 20 days beginning with Tuesday's opener of a three-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Here's the lineup Joe Girard...Blog | September 09, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- The clock is ticking loudly now on Derek Jeter's career -- 22 games and counting. It is perhaps still too early to pass judgment on the Yankees' 2014 season, but it's certainly not too early to pass judgment on Jeter's. By just about a...Blog | September 07, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- There's no longer any question about who won the trade. If it hadn't already been settled when Jesus Montero showed up to Seattle Mariners camp looking like Fudgie the Whale, it certainly was when he reportedly went ballistic over receivi...Blog | September 06, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- The Yankees couldn't hit if their playoff life depended on it. Which, of course, it does. There, I said it. They followed up last night's dramatic 5-4 walk-off win over the Red Sox, featuring a pair of ninth-inning solo home runs by...Blog | September 05, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- The Yankees begin an important three-game series tonight against a team that could stand in the way of their wild-card aspirations, the Kansas City Royals, who are clinging to a one-game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. ...Blog | September 05, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- They have asked you to believe since last winter, when they blew past the Hal-imposed $189 million salary cap to sign a pitcher who hadn't lost in more than a year, a player with two World Series rings who was still in the prime of his ca...Blog | September 05, 2014Wallace Matthews
NEW YORK -- Do you believe in miracles? Obviously, it's not easy with this New York Yankees team, especially with the kind of offensive performance they put on again Thursday -- that is, until a two-HR ninth-inning explosion that pulled out a 5-4 ...Blog | September 04, 2014Wallace Matthews
