A-Rod is in Tonight against the Phillies

Posted by GameSetMatch on 16th June 2010

New York Yankees third baseman, Alex Rodriguez will be in the Yankees line up tonight against the Philadelphia Phillies. Rodriguez will bat clean up and will play as the designated hitter. Hopefully his minor groin injury will not affect his plate appearance and he can help the Yankees take another game from the Phillies. Rodriguez was batting a .317 in his last 10 games before his injury occurred.

New York Yankees president Randy Levine tells Brewers owner to ’stop whining’ about payroll

Posted by GameSetMatch on 7th April 2010

Yankees president Randy Levine has heard it often, but he’s had enough of complaints from small-market owners about payroll disparity.

Milwaukee owner Mark Attanasio was quoted in Monday’s USA Today saying, “We’re struggling to sign (Prince Fielder) and the Yankees infield is making more” than the entire Brewers roster.

“As I’ve said, Mark’s a good friend, but he needs to stop whining and complaining about our player payroll,” Levine told the Daily News. “We play by all the rules, and we always have. We’ve contributed hundreds of millons of dollars in revenue sharing and no one complains when they get the money.

“But use that money to sign your players. Period. As you notice, the complaining always comes from others, not from us.”

Rodriguez ‘at ease’ with Galea

Posted by GameSetMatch on 9th March 2010

Alex Rodriguez says he is “at ease, no matter what” with his relationship with a Canadian sports doctor embroiled in a cross-border drug smuggling investigation involving human growth hormone and another drug.

Rodriguez told reporters Tuesday at the Yankees spring training complex that he still does not know when he will be interviewed by federal authorities. The slugger said last week he was “aware” of the investigation and plans to cooperate with the government.

When asked if he is choosing not to talk or has been told not to speak, Rodriguez laughed and says he “thinks the latter.”

Matsui’s bat drives Yankees to 27th World Series crown

Posted by GameSetMatch on 5th November 2009

The New York Yankees bolted from the dugout even before the last grounder was scooped up. After waiting nine years for championship No. 27, no one would dare hold them back.

“It feels better than I remember it, man,” captain Derek Jeter said. “It’s been a long time.”

Hideki Matsui tied a World Series record with six RBIs, Andy Pettitte won on short rest and New York beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-3 in Game 6 on Wednesday night, finally seizing that elusive title — the most in all of sports.

Paint the town in pinstripes! Nearly a decade after their dynasty ended on a blooper in the desert, the Yankees are baseball’s best again.

Matsui, the Series MVP, powered a quick rout of old foe Pedro Martinez. And when Mariano Rivera got the final out, it was ecstasy in the Bronx for George Steinbrenner’s go-for-broke bunch.

Rodriguez’s double in ninth gives Yanks 3-1 World Series lead

Posted by GameSetMatch on 2nd November 2009

Alex Rodriguez waited all game long for this hit. Heck, he waited his whole life. The New York Yankees have been waiting, too.

Rodriguez delivered a go-ahead, two-out double in the ninth inning off Brad Lidge and the Yankees took advantage of Johnny Damon’s daring dash to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 7-4 on Sunday night for a 3-1 lead in the World Series.

“There’s no question — I’ve never had a bigger hit,” Rodriguez said.

Derek Jeter came through again and Mariano Rivera finished it off as the Yankees moved within one win of that elusive 27th championship and first since 2000.

Rodriguez applauded his own hit, for good reason. Seething since the first inning after again being nailed by a pitch, the highest-paid player in the majors struck back with his potent black bat.

Matsui’s blast sends Series to Philadelphia all tied up

Posted by GameSetMatch on 30th October 2009

Mark Teixeira and Hideki Matsui shook the New York Yankees from their lumber slumber and sent the World Series to Philadelphia all tied up.


Teixeira and Matsui hit solo homers off familiar foe Pedro Martinez, backing a sharp performance by A.J. Burnett and giving the Yankees a 3-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 2 on Thursday night.

“After yesterday, getting a win today was big,” Teixeira said.

A night after getting stopped by Cliff Lee in the opener 6-1, the Yanks bounced back from an early deficit, sparked by a pickoff throw from backup catcher Jose Molina, and won in the Series for the first time since taking a 2-1 lead against Florida in 2003.

A-Rod says goodbye to October hex

Posted by GameSetMatch on 8th October 2009

Derek Jeter was on second base with two outs in the first inning when Alex Rodriguez left him there by flying out to right. But Rodriguez wasn’t unhappy with his turn at the plate.

Rodriguez hit it “good” a few times in last night’s 7-2 Game 1 win over the Twins in the first playoff game at the new Stadium, as he finally started delivering in a Yankees playoff game. He had a pair of run-scoring singles, including a critical one in the Bombers’ game-clinching fifth-inning rally.

On that one, Rodriguez laced an RBI single to left, then scored on Hideki Matsui’s two-run homer, part of the Yankees’ three-run inning. Later in the seventh, he smacked an RBI single off the right-field wall.

Burnett Looks Sharp as He Prepares for First Postseason

Posted by GameSetMatch on 30th September 2009

Six years ago, A. J. Burnett stood on the field at Yankee Stadium wearing a sweatshirt and a glum expression. His team was preparing for Game 1 of the World Series, but he would not be pitching.



Burnett’s Marlins went on to win the title, beating the Yankees in six games, but he was a spectator, going through his rehabilitation after undergoing reconstructive elbow surgery that April.

“It’s really hard not to be a part of this,” he said that day.

On Tuesday night, after delivering six and a third strong innings in the Yankees’ 4-3 victory over the Royals, Burnett recalled his mixed feelings that October afternoon.

“I remember that,” he said. “It was a workout day, and I wasn’t doing much. I was really happy for the guys, but it was tough. Now I feel like I’ll really be a part of it.”

Yankees’ Gaudin Sharp In Win Over Royals

Posted by GameSetMatch on 29th September 2009

Robinson Cano capped a five-run seventh inning with a grand slam, Chad Gaudin made a case for a spot on the Yankees’ postseason roster and a makeshift lineup beat the Kansas City Royals 8-2 Monday night for the team’s 101st win

A day after the Yankees secured their first AL East title since 2006, Ramiro Pena hit his first major league home run and Shelley Duncan had a tiebreaking single in the sixth. The Yankees rested most of their regulars for the opener of a three-game series against the Royals, the last AL team to visit the new $1.5 billion Yankee Stadium.

Cano’s second career slam was his 25th homer this season and helped set a franchise record for most players with at least 25 home runs in a season. He joined Mark Teixeira (38), Alex Rodriguez (28), Hideki Matsui (28) and Nick Swisher (27).

Hairston to undergo MRI exam on wrist

Posted by GameSetMatch on 24th September 2009

Yankees utility man Jerry Hairston Jr. was removed from Wednesday’s 3-2 win at Angel Stadium after feeling a popping sensation in his left wrist and will undergo an MRI examination on Thursday in New York.


Hairston was batting in the seventh inning against right-handed reliever Jason Bulger with New York leading, 3-2, and took a ball from the hurler. He tried a practice swing after the pitch and felt something strange and painful.

“It’s just been bothering me the last three weeks or so,” Hairston said. “It felt really weird. I’ve never had that. I felt something pop and I tried to take another swing and felt kind of a sharp pain. Right now, I’m hoping it’s scar tissue or something I can play through.”

Yankees manager Joe Girardi and head trainer Gene Monahan came onto the field and briefly examined Hairston before the three men walked off the field. In the dugout, Monahan sliced a soft tape wrap off of Hairston’s wrist before disappearing down the dugout tunnel.
