New York Yankees
Word of baseball writer Bill Chuck’s campaign to start Mariano Rivera in this year’s All-Star Game has traveled all the way to the Bronx. In fact, the Yankees closer knows all about it. And he says thanks, but no thanks.
“There wasn’t panic, but there were fingers on the button,” Cone told WFAN’s Sweeny Murti. “We saw it potentially slipping away.”
Raul Ibanez again treated Yankee Stadium as his personal playground, hitting a grand slam and two-run homer Wednesday night to help the Seattle Mariners rout New York 12-2.
There will be professional hockey at Yankee Stadium in 2014. Two games will be played in the Bronx next season as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series, the NHL announced on Wednesday.
Locally, the Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez (out until after the All-Star break) came in at No. 9 and the Mets’ Johan Santana (out for the season) came in at No. 13. Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter (out until after the All-Star break) is No. 19.
Robinson Cano hit a two-run double, Lyle Overbay delivered a tiebreaking sacrifice fly and the New York Yankees rallied after Felix Hernandez left following a couple of odd twists, beating the Seattle Mariners 4-3 Tuesday night.
Granderson was activated on Tuesday by the Yankees, and in the lineup against Seattle batting fourth and playing left field. New York optioned left-hander Vidal Nuno to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
In a statement, Mantle’s kin said claims that “The Mick” used an altered bat are “outrageously false, misleading and deceptive … apparently for a quick buck and publicity.”
Sweeny and Cone talk about how the Bombers overcame a potentially disastrous start to the season, two turning-point games in May, and the arrival of El Duque.
Vidal Nuno pitched five innings of three-hit ball to win his first major league start, Vernon Wells and Lyle Overbay had two RBIs apiece and the New York Yankees beat the Cleveland Indians, 7-0, on Monday for a doubleheader split.
For today’s blog I would like to highlight one of the funniest, most lovable, most quotable pitchers to ever wear the pinstripes — Lefty Gomez.
Justin Masterson pitched a four-hitter for his second shutout this season, leading the Cleveland Indians over the New York Yankees, 1-0, in the first game of a doubleheader on Monday.
It all kind of makes you wonder, if Girardi’s team is doing this well absent their offensive stars, how powerful will these guys be at full strength?
The Cleveland Indians saw plenty of Robinson Cano last month, and now they will have to try to find a way to slow down the Yankees’ superstar in a doubleheader.
Vernon Wells went deep for the second straight game and the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Sunday.
