The Yankees are off to a 1-4 start to begin the season after failing to the Tigers 8-4 on Saturday.

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.
The outcome of ‘Wild Card Wednesday’ has made the Yankees’ playoff match-ups the toughest possible. Verlander and the Tigers are no easy task and the Rays are built for playoff success.
Victor Martinez had two run-scoring groundouts off R.A. Dickey and Brad Penny pitched into the fourth inning Monday, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 2-1 victory over the Mets.
Baseball’s offseason market got busy even faster than usual Tuesday, with teams forced to make quick decisions on contract options as they prepare offers to a relatively weak free-agent class headed by Cliff Lee and Carl Crawford.
Derek Jeter, Carl Crawford and Jayson Werth head a list of 142 players who have become free agents following the World Series.
