  2. 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...

  3. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. Pregame notes: Sabathia out of his chair

    Wallace Matthews

  8. 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...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Kuroda, Yankees still seeking answers

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- The best way to determine how the Yankees felt about Hiroki Kuroda's performance Thursday against the Seattle Mariners is to listen to what they were judging it against. No one was comparing Kuroda's six innings of work in the Yankees'...

    Wallace Matthews

    NEW YORK -- The New York Yankees thought they got a break when Seattle Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon chose to stay on rotation for tonight's game, meaning no King Felix, but yes Kid Roenis. They couldn't have been more wrong. Now, the Mariners...

    Wallace Matthews

    TORONTO -- Let us assume, just for the moment, that eventually, the Yankees will hit a baseball out of a ballpark, and that $438 million of Hal Steinbrenner's money will eventually buy them a timely hit, and that the presence of a knuckleballer on th...

  16. Notes: Rough flight, sleepless night

    Wallace Matthews

    TORONTO -- The Yankees thought the worst part of the quick turnaround between Thursday's game in Houston and Friday's in Toronto was going to be the short night's sleep. But that wasn't the worst of it at all. In fact, it turned out to be a sleepl...
