Losing A-Rod until mid-season will force the Yankees to make power-hitting outfielder Cody Ross their number one target.
Right-handed starter Matt Harvey — who was brilliant for the Mets in his rookie season — and top pitching prospect Zack Wheeler are untouchables, a club source said in a report.
Red Sox management got rid of the big contracts, along with the big egos. What remained still hated Bobby Valentine.
The brash and supremely confident manager was fired on Thursday, the day after the finale of a season beset with internal sniping and far too many losses.
Jon Lester gave the New York Yankees ample opportunity to break open the game, and they failed nearly every time.
Whatever the Red Sox have left will be focused on beating the Yankees. And while Boston’s hitters may not scare anyone, New York can look to their own lineup for that sensation.
The Red Sox struggles have made life easier this season for the New York Yankees, but they have not made life better.
The regular season is not the issue for the Yankees. But once they get to the postseason, there may be dark times around the corner.
The Red Sox don’t mesh together anymore, and when they face the better teams in baseball — such as the rival Yankees — they simply don’t have enough to compete.
Is it too early to panic Yankee fans? Steve Silverman believes the Yankees’ powerful lineup will carry them during the summer.
There’s too much talent on the diamond and in the dugout for me to put a post mortem on the Boston Red Sox. I tried it last year, when they started 0-5, then Boston stampeded to the top of the AL East, before their surreal September.
For the Padres, Cameron Maybin set a career high in nearly every offensive category, sometimes by fantastic margins.
Sometimes an argument is simple, no matter how muddled and complex we make it. If Pedro in his prime couldn’t win the MVP, then Justin isn’t justified.
Justin Verlander winning the MVP started plenty of arguments, but it also deprived us of another great winter debate—if Jacoby Ellsbury had won the award over Curtis Granderson.
Justin Verlander was the clear choice to win the 2011 AL MVP Award and was boosted by new-age statistics along with the usual criteria needed to capture the award.
