  1. Pineda one of the few keepers on roster

    Wallace 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...

  2. For Yankees, the tragic number is 8

    Wallace Matthews

    TORONTO -- For the 64th time this season, the Yankees ask you to suspend your disbelief, throw your logic out with the garbage and believe in something when common sense tells you you're out of your mind. OK, so go with it for awhile. After all, i...

  3. Rapid Reaction: Blue Jays 2, Yankees 0

    Wallace Matthews

    TORONTO -- A good effort on Friday, a non-effort on Saturday. That is what mediocre teams are all about. Once again, the Yankees were all about being a mediocre team in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Blue Jays. Once again, they wasted a fine pitch...

  4. Yankees' loss familiar, and discouraging

    Wallace Matthews

    DETROIT -- As soon as the ball left Alex Avila's bat, Shawn Kelley dropped his head and began walking to the dugout, like a beaten racehorse heading back to the barn. He was hoping for the best but expecting the worst, and before he had crossed the t...

  5. Rapid Reaction: Yankees 8, Tigers 4

    Wallace Matthews

    DETROIT -- The Yankees are at that point in the season where every win is a candidate for "Biggest Win of the Year." But even if they weren't, this one might still qualify, based largely on one (unusually) terrific inning against one (usually) terrif...

  6. What will Pineda be without P-I-N-E?

    Wallace Matthews

    BALTIMORE -- The question was perfectly legitimate, if a bit abrupt -- "Will you continue to use pine tar?" -- and when a reporter asked it of him in the Yankees' clubhouse before Monday night's game with the Orioles, it seemed to hit Michael Pineda ...

  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. Game 70: Blue Jays (41-31) at Yanks (36-33)

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- The Yankees are on the verge of history tonight; if they beat the Blue Jays again, it will be the 15th straight time they have beaten Toronto at home, which will be their longest winning streak against a visiting team in more than a half-...

  9. Tanaka: The indispensable Yankee

    Wallace Matthews

    SEATTLE -- This is about as plain as I can put it: The only thing standing between the Yankees and a disastrous 2014 season is Masahiro Tanaka. Every time he pitches, it seems, Joe Girardi and as many of Tanaka's teammates who can be rounded up af...

  10. Rapid Reaction: Yankees 4, Mariners 2

    Wallace Matthews

    SEATTLE -- Three things the New York Yankees can be sure of: death, taxes and Masahiro Tanaka. The 25-year-old Japanese right-hander, who is the ace of this pitching staff whether he wants to acknowledge it or not, did it again Wednesday night, s...

  11. Jeter not ready to say farewell

    Wallace Matthews

    SEATTLE -- Derek Jeter hates the term "Farewell Tour." He isn't all that comfortable with pregame ceremonies, or receiving gifts from opposing teams, or having to answer the same questions from a new group of writers at every stop the Yankees make th...

  12. Yanks mediocrity plain to see, now what?

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- It's pretty rare that all of a team's flaws are on display in a single ballgame, but Monday's Yankees loss to the Seattle Mariners was one of those games. Their offense collected a good number of hits off King Felix Hernandez, eight to...

  13. Rapid Reaction: Mariners 10, Yankees 2

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- The Seattle Mariners completed a series sweep of the Yankees with their 10-2 win at the Stadium tonight. OK, so it took them five weeks to do it -- they won the first two games on April 29 and May 1, with the middle game bein...

  14. Pregame notes: Sabathia out of his chair

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- CC Sabathia is not expected to return to the Yankees' rotation until somewhere around July 1, but the big left-hander says he hopes to begin throwing, on two legs, sometime this week. Sabathia, who went on the disabled list on May 11 w...

  15. Rapid Reaction: Twins 7, Yankees 2

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- Heading into the ninth inning, the Yankees couldn't have asked for a much better day than they were having -- another solid start from Chase Whitley, another scary good performance from Dellin Betances, and just three outs standing betwee...

  16. Just who are the 2014 New York Yankees?

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- When Masahiro Tanaka takes the mound Saturday afternoon against the Minnesota Twins, it will mark the Yankees' 54th game of the 2014 season, exactly one-third of the way to the finish line. An arbitrary milepost, to be sure, but by no ...
