A league executive told CBS News that Anthony Bosch could implicate up to 25 players, including some stars not currently connected to the firestorm.
Obviously the Mets aren’t this good and the Yankees aren’t this bad. But the Yankees weren’t as good as they let on, and are now playing more like many of us thought they would a month ago.
Indeed, Girardi seems the easy choice for Manager of the Year again, at least at the quarter-pole.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
Vernon Wells went deep for the second straight game and the New York Yankees beat the Kansas City Royals 4-2 on Sunday.
Vernon Wells hit a go-ahead two-run homer and made a long running catch to preserve a 3-2 victory for Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees
Pinch-hitter Brennan Boesch hit a tiebreaking infield single with the bases loaded in the ninth off closer Rafael Betancourt and the New York Yankees snapped a five-game skid at Coors Field with a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rockies.
When Grandy does return to the Bronx and is ready to go, where will he be playing? It’s anybody’s guess at this point. Even manager Joe Girardi isn’t sure where he’ll put the three-time All-Star.
Carlos Corporan homered among his four hits and drove in four runs, Brandon Barnes three hits and three RBIs, and the Houston Astros fit comfortably into the role of a slugging AL squad Monday night in a 9-1 romp over the Yankees.
Travis Hafner had a monster day at the plate as the Yankees edged the Blue Jays, 5-4.
The Yankees outslugged the Jays on Thursday night as the Bombers won 5-3.
