Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz hit many clutch home runs to burn the New York Yankees over the years, and it’s probably a big relief for them that he’s set to retire when the season ends. Ortiz played in his final game in New York on Thursday night, and went 0-for-1 at the plate with a strikeout and a walk. The Yankees came through with a pretty great gesture before the...
You know, it’s a shame the Blue Jays are still shook from Mark Teixeira bat-flipping the ever-loving crap out of that home run Monday night, otherwise this sweep of the Red Sox would have been so much sweeter. The Yankees won Thursday’s series finale 5-1, but because the Orioles beat the Blue Jays, New York has been officially eliminated from the postseason. Sucks. I can’t...

NEW YORK — The Yankees’ playoff hopes died on Thursday night, and they couldn’t do a thing about it. With Baltimore’s 4-0 win in Toronto, there are now just four teams left in contention for a wild card spot–the Blue Jays, Orioles, Tigers and Mariners. No Yankees. So, Thursday marked one of four meaningless games they’ll play until their season concludes on Sunday...

CC Sabathia has one year remaining on his current monster contract with the New York Yankees. The left-hander is nowhere close to as dominant as he was four or five years ago, but that does not mean he is considering retirement. Sabathia, who has been with the Yankees since 2009, knows for certain that he wants to continue pitching beyond the 2017 season. If he can do it in New...
Three years ago the Yankees made a decision to prioritize defense over offense in the outfield. They spent big to sign Jacoby Ellsbury, then a few months later they committed a market value extension to Brett Gardner. Yeah, they also brought in Carlos Beltran to play right field, but the other two outfield spots were occupied to players known more for their gloves and legs than their...

Tuesday night was a good night for the Yankees. First and foremost, they staved off playoff elimination by beating the Red Sox 6-4 at the Stadium. Second, they guaranteed another season at .500 or above, their 24th in a row. Third, they hit three home runs—the most important a two-run, opposite field shot by Tyler Austin which turned into the game winner. And finally, the other...
New York Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira sits down with SNY's Sweeny Murti to look back on his 14-year career.
Tensions were high during Monday night’s Yankees-Blue Jays game after batters from each team were thrown at by opposing pitchers. It started when Josh Donaldson got plunked on the elbow by Luis Severino, which looked to be purposeful, although it’s hard to know for sure. The Jays clearly thought the intent was there, because they responded by having J.A. Happ hit Chase Headley...
