Brett Gardner, Brian McCann and Chase Headley homered during an eight-run first inning and the New York Yankees romped past the AL Central-leading Kansas City Royals 14-1 Monday.
Mustaches in various stages of growth have been sprouting on the upper lips of an increasing number of players during the team’s recent run of wins in seven of nine games.
Gardner was hit by a pitch Monday and left the game midway through New York’s win over Baltimore.
Yankees left fielder Brett Gardner had an MRI on Thursday that confirmed he has a bone bruise in his right wrist.
Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run homer off Masahiro Tanaka, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the New York Yankees 6-1 Monday in Alex Rodriguez’s return to the major leagues.
Jeter left behind a team in transition, that failed to make the playoffs in consecutive years for the first time in a generation and is beset with an older core coming off injuries.
And this is cool: a side-by-side comparison of the original 1993 scene and the Yankees’ homage is already up on YouTube.
OK, so you want to hear about players other than Alex Rodriguez? I get it. But don’t try to alter the facts of the case
I love classic rock, but I cannot listen to the Yankees play the same Boston and Bad Company songs again. They need to become more of a progressive college radio station.
The Daily News’ source also said reports of Rodriguez admitting he used performance-enhancing drugs to the DEA have “nothing to do with his future.”
The Yankees said Wednesday that outfielder Brett Gardner recently had surgery to repair a core muscle injury in his right abdomen.
The Yankees, citing research from Elias, said they became the first team to reach the milestone. The total starts in 1903, the first year the franchise started play in New York.
Derek Jeter’s final season now has no chance of ending with an AL East title. “It’s frustrating,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said after Monday night’s loss.
With 44 games remaining, the Yankees do not possess the fear-inducing aura of Bronx Bombers teams of recent vintage. And unless the front office changes its philosophy, it’s only going to get worse.
Brett Gardner, raking at the dish, has unquestionably been the Bombers’ MVP, especially considering Masahiro Tanaka’s recent absence. But a huge test awaits.
