New York Yankees
It’s safe to say Derek Jeter is happy with his decision to retire from baseball.
A-Rod homered, but the bullpen blew it against the O’s Wednesday and last-place New York lost its third straight series to start the season, all within the AL East.
A little more than a third of the way through his contract, Carlos Beltran has yet to make an impact with the Yankees — and this season he’s healthy.
Whenever I’m slightly objective about the Yankees, I’m branded nouns unsuitable for family programming — particularly on Twitter, the toxic waste of human dialogue. Well, then I’m writing this in my HAZMAT suit.
Miguel Gonzalez struck out a career-high 10 over seven innings, and the Baltimore Orioles beat CC Sabathia and the New York Yankees 4-3 Tuesday night at soggy Camden Yards.
Nova threw 20 pitches Tuesday at the Yankees’ minor league complex and appears on track to rejoin the team in June.
“Bald Vinny” Milano says he has no problem with Mets fans doing roll call during Monday’s home opener at Citi Field — even if it is a Yankees thing.

It’s expected that the Yankees will fight a series of bonuses due to Alex Rodriguez by ignoring the milestones. If that’s the plan, they’re sticking to it.
Alex Rodriguez went into Monday night batting .300. He finished at .250 after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the Yankees’ win over the O’s.
“My godfather means the world to me,” Bonds told USA TODAY Sports. “I love him to a T. But when Alex hits No. 660, I’ll be happy for him. Willie will be happy for him.”
Baltimore could again find itself in a slugfest Monday night should the Yankees replicate the offensive outburst they showcased their last time out.
New York (1-4) was limited to five hits in an 8-4 loss Saturday after going 14 for 67 in a 6-5, 19-inning loss in Friday’s opener.
They might be the butt of jokes, but pitchers can succeed despite their extra large cabooses and midsections.
Sure, it’s only been three games, but there’s no denying the fact that the Yankees look very much like their mediocre-at-best selves from last season.
