Mar 19, AB 1: Alex Rodriguez grounds out, third baseman Adonis Garcia to first baseman Nick Swisher.
Out of approximately 600 delivery men (not only to this house of course but around the area) I have ID'd 15 to Equinox & they are playing currently including Alex Rodriguez & Nick Swisher.
I'm sorry but if your a fan of Nick Swisher, Paul Konerko and Alex Rodriguez your gonna have a hard time getting my respect
As though Alex Rodriguez were in need of more bad publicity, there's a damning report in the 'Boston Globe' on A-Rod's former charitable endeavors.
Curtis Granderson will be out 8-10 weeks with a fractured forearm after being plunked during today's game. That's okay, though. The Yankees have Nick Swisher and Alex Rodriguez...oh, wait.
YANKEES-Robinson Cano planted the kiss of death on the Yankees as he becomes a free agent at the end of the year. Cano is letting it be known that his next contract is all about money. Meaning get out your checkbook Mr Steinbrenner. ( just a thought, perhaps the Yankees who seem to have been holding back on contracts for its players this year, are saving their money for Cano.) The Yankees who have no leverage in the negotiations for Cano may lose their chance of re-reigning Curtis Granderson and Phil Hughes next year if Cano's negotiators stick to their $189million ceiling. Cano, 30, is in his prime is the hub of the Yankees' lineup. Alex Rodriguez who has been disgraced, is invisible, Derek Jeter turns 39 this year. Nick Swisher is gone, so are Raul Ibanez and Russell Martin. And Mark Teixeira is in a slow, steady decline. Cano is the one offensive player who is in the sweet spot of his career making him irreplaceable. Cano is a Boras client, which means their intent is to maximize the negotiating mark . ...
I found that baseball players were placed in illegal medicals when they were missing from teams but no one ever investigated their absence because there are so many players that when one doesnt show another is just inserted. I dont like that type of world so I went around to find them & found that they were not where they should be because they were placed in illegal medicals in Belize. I found the great grandsons of Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson, Aaron Hill, Nick Swisher & Paul Kornerko so I chose the name of their singing group & put them on record label as THE WANTED. Alex III wrote this song for me.
The New York Yankees have agreed to a one-year, $12-million contract with third baseman Kevin Youkilis. Youkilis, 33, batted a combined .235 with 19 home runs and 60 RBI for the Red Sox and White Sox last season. He will fill in at third for the injured Alex Rodriguez, who will miss the ...
For those who are concerned: Recent survey of 100 major league players by Men's Journal, Pierzynski was voted (34%) as the "most hated player" in the league. The New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez (10%) and Nick Swisher (9%) finished second and third, respectively. -Alex
Honestly now looking at it if we had beaten Detroit in the ALCS to be in the series I think the Giants would have beaten us I really do. Derek Jeter uninjured would cause problems for the Giants, Alex Rodriguez well writing is on the wall strike out fodder the same applies to Robinson Cano and Mark Teixera and Nick Swisher them going up against the likes of Zito, Lincecum and Vogelsong but I think A-ROD would have gotten 1 maybe a few base hits yes I still believe :P Raul Ibanez he's our clutch hitter this post season I can see him slamming in a homer Ichiro if used correctly we all know what he can do O.O Pitching well were beat they got our # reasons being Chamberlain, Soriano and Pettite wont do it Mariano is injured, CC is our reliable main man as well as Kuroda.
How will Brian Cashman address his aging team? Will he attempt to go younger or will he stick with his older guns? Will he attempt to deal the virtually untradeable Alex Rodriguez? Will he re-sign Nick Swisher? As usual, the longtime GM didn't disclose his plans.
"Pete Kozma has 7 RBIs this postseason. That's the same total as Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez...combined." -Paul Severino (
The Yankees set the all-time record for lowest team Batting Average of any team engaged in a 7-game Series, but according to one player, Mike Greenberg of Mike and Mike in the Morning said, the person responsible wasn't a great Detroit pitching staff or an atrocious Yankee team...it's the fans who "spooked the players." Wow, imagine, those poor souls who sat in the stands and when they saw a team play worse than they did during the days of Horace Clarke and Bill Robinson, booed, had the impact which caused Alex Rodriguez to have a .667 STRIKEOUT average (12 K's in 18 at ats vs right handers), and Nick Swisher to play the outfield as if he was on some Connie Mack team.
Somewhere Brian Cashman is on a phone trying to deal Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and texting Scott Boras Nick Swisher's gone.
New York Yankees payroll for 2012- $197,962,289 Alex Rodriguez not happy with $250,000,000 for ten years renegotiates 10 year deal- $275,000,000 READING THE FOLLOWING: Robinson Cano was at .075 (3 for 40) with no home runs, including a 29 at-bat hitless streak. Curtis Granderson 3 for 30 with 16 strikeouts, Nick Swisher .167 (5 for 30) with two RBIs and Russell Martin .161 (5 for 31) with one RBI. ABSOLUTELY PRICELESS... was that a Swiffer Sweaper I noticed today?...
I'm no expert, but it seems to me that if an employee earns millions of dollars a year for their abilities they should be expected to perform. And since it's major belt-tightening season across America, maybe the Yankees should take a cue from the Federal government. Sure, keep Ichiro, Jeter, Texeira, Raul Ibanez and probably Robinson Cano (despite his horrific post-season performance), but it's time to seriously consider unloading high payroll driftwood like Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher, Curtis Granderson and Russel Martin, who all are playing strictly for themelves, trying to be heroes with a mighty swing of the bat and seem to have lost their team spirit. To completely blow it in the playoffs after a tremendous regular season is unforgiveable. Boo Yankees. I should have gone back to rooting for my childhood heroes the Baltimore Orioles this year. At least those guys had heart.
Yankees done for another year going to be a long off-season Alex Rodriguez gone Nick Swisher gone Curtis Granderson gone
congratulations to the Detroit Tigers for totally outclassing my New York Yankees in the ALCS. The tigers put on a clinic and showed the fans why they are the top dog in the American League. The Yankees need to make some serious changes. firing hitting coach Kevin Long, letting go of Nick Swisher, and possibly trading Alex Rodriguez (if anyone wants him and only god knows why they would) would be the beginning of it.
New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi is exactly right! It just was NOT Alex Rodriguez who did NOT hit. They had too many players NOT hitting! You DO know for sure AROD will NOT be a NY Yankee and Nick Swisher WILL NOT be back either! If you ARE the Yankees DO you think about trading Robinson Cano?
I'll admit, Cano was horrible this postseason, but he's performed years before so I'll let this one slide. Teixeira wasn't bad this postseason but his numbers weren't stellar. Nick Swisher is a postseason zombie along with Alex Rodriguez and they both have a new member in their postseason zombie club: Curtis Granderson. But next year the Yankees will be better. Derek Jeter will be healthy, Mariano Rivera will be healthy, Brett Gardner will be 100%, Swisher will be gone and I'm hoping the Yankees re-sign Ichiro just so Ichiro could have a chance to make it to the postseason next year. He's one player that truly, truly deserves it.
I congratulate the Detroit Tigers on winning the American League. A guy like dishes out a lot of smack, and is also able to take it. So, with that being said good luck to your team in the World Series. As far the Yankees go, GM Cashman either should resign or be let go. Alex Rodriguez will be traded to the Marlins, Nick Swisher, Mark Tex, a couple of others should be gone as well. Blow up the team and start over. We will suck for a few yrs, but we will return to the top and win more WS titles because we are the YANKEES, we are meant to be the best and we will.
The Yankees are just made up of the worst postseason hitters of all time with a few exceptions: Curtis Granderson: .231 Mark Teixeira: .227 Nick Swisher .167 Robinson Cano: .226 and Alex Rodriguez: .265 And for those players that bash A-ROD non stop he was honestly the only reason the Yankees won in 2009 hitting .365 while Mark, Cano and Swisher didn't even hit over .200 Honestly i am more embarrassed than in 2004
Congratulations to the Detroit Tigers for advancing back to the World Series. Congratulations to Dan Lunetta for getting another American League ring...and hopefully bringing home another World Series ring. To my Yankees, you guys played a long, hard season. Hopefully there will be some changes next year. Frankly, Joe Girardi, Alex Rodriguez, Russell Martin, and Nick Swisher's tenures with the team are over. I will make a prediction that Joe Torre comes back. I don't care what anyone else says...the Yankees are still the greatest organization in Sports History and they will always be the greatest sports team in my heart...but for now. Let's go Detroit!
So longgg, fair welll, aufedersein good byeee to : Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher
This very well could be the Yankees run coming to a crashing halt. For the last 15+ years, the Bombers knew EVERY spring that their cornerstone SS and lockdown Closer would be ready to go. That is no longer a guarantee. When ANDY F'ING DIRKS has a higher Batting Average than Robby Cano, Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira, Nick Swisher, and others in a postseason series, it's time to go back to the drawing board. The only ace you have just got torched in his biggest spot. Leave the memories alone, Yankees. Time to look up to the Orioles and Rays for a little while.
Terrible Fact and the Fun Fact season finale for this wack postseason: The Yankees have six players with at least 20 plate appearances hitting below .200 this postseason. Robinson Cano has hit .083 in eight games, including going 1-for-14 in the three games against Detroit. Curtis Granderson has hit .103 with 15 strikeouts in 29 at-bats, including six strikeouts in 10 hitless at-bats during the ALCS. Alex Rodriguez is hitting .130 with 12 strikeouts in 23 at-bats, Nick Swisher .154, Russell Martin .172. Eric Chavez, who has taken over for Rodriguez at third, has yet to have a hit. By comparison, St. Louis' pitchers have hit .214 in the playoffs.
can somebody explain to me.if Joe Girardi, throughout this nightmare series...benched.Alex Rodriguez, and Curtis Granderson.why is Nick Swisher even playing?
To the following Yankees, enjoy your final game in Pinstripes: Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher, Ichiro.
Dream The Impossible Dream! Can the Yanks channel the '04 Red Sox? Season on the line, but Yankees tab their ace in Detroit. Alex Rodriguez remains on the bench, joined by Curtis Granderson, as the Yanks try to stage a historic comeback to keep their season alive, starting ace lefty CC Sabathia. CC aims to play stopper; Scherzer can put Tigers in Series. Down 0-3, the Yankees turn to CC Sabathia vs. the Tigers and Max Scherzer, who are one win from the World Series. Nick Swisher is in; Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson are out.
Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson out of lineup, Nick Swisher back in for Game 4 of ALCS. Will A-Rod still be a Yankee next year ?
Manager Joe Girardi shuffled his lineup once again for Wednesday's do-or-die Game 4 of the American League Championship Series vs. the Tigers, sitting Curtis Granderson in favor of Nick Swisher. Swisher, who sat out Game 3, is in right field and batting second for Game 4. For the second consecutive game, Brett Gardner is in the lineup. With Granderson out, Girardi moved Gardner over to center field and slid him down to the eighth spot in the lineup. Gardner went 0-for-4 while playing left field and batting leadoff in Game 3. Ichiro Suzuki will start in left and lead off. Alex Rodriguez is also on the bench for the second straight game, as Eric Chavez will play third base and bat sixth.
Team Batting Average through the first 8 games of the playoffs: .211 With a payroll of $197,962,289.00 what are the keeYanks doing? Álex Rodríguez .130 Curtis Granderson .103 Robinson Canó .083 Nick Swisher .154
Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher have been benched by the New York Yankees for Game 3 of the AL championship series at Detroit on Tuesday night.
Facing a Yankees lineup without Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher, Justin Verlander was perfect the first time through before giving up a fourth-inning single to Ichiro Suzuki.
With his team not hitting and down two games in the ALCS, New York Yankees manager Joe Giradi has totally shaken up his lineup for Game 3 by benching Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher against Tigers' starter Justin Verlander.
So Joe Girardi has benched both Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher for tonight's Game No. 3 against the Tigers. Eric Chavez gets another start at third, while Brett Gardner will make his first postseason start in the outfield. Also, Eduardo Nunez will start over Jayson Nix at shortstop. It is simply must-win time for the Yankees.
Dear Yankee fans, You cannot blame you losing solely on Alex Rodriguez. Its getting to the point where I feel bad for the guy. Rodinson Cano .63 Batting Average 4 K's. Curtis Granderson .115 Batting Average 14 Freaking K's. Russell Martin .192 Batting Average 3K's. Nick Swisher .154 Batting Average 8K's. Leave the poor man alone so what he flirted with girls in the stand, if you were a professional baseball player so would you probably.
. Robinson Cano, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher are a combined 12 for 107 in seven postseason games, and the world is facing a shortage of the letter K thanks to so many of them being used to fill out Yankees scorecards. Lets keep it that way.
The Yankees are paying 4 players (Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher, and Curtis Granderson) a combined 62 million dollars for this season alone and how do they show that they are worth it? By batting a combined .121 in the series, 12 for 99 in at bats. Glad I'm not a Yankees fan because it would be much more appalling than it already is.
New York City, NY (AP) New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman announced today that he is exhuming the body of Mickey Mantle and will reactivate the Hall of Fame outfielder for the remainder of this year's playoffs. When asked how the decomposed remains of a man dead for 17 years could possibly help his team, Cashman replied 'one fifty-two', the combined playoff Batting Average of Alex Rodriguez, Russell Martin, Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher and Curtis Granderson. Mr. Mantle could not be reached for comment. (30)
200 million on a payroll only to get this Alex Rodriguez, Cano, Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher 13-107,38 strikeouts in postseason
The combined Batting Average of Alex Rodriguez, Robinson Caño, Nick Swisher, and Curtis Granderson during the 2012 postseason is 0.115. The combined salary average for those same four players for 2012 is $16.06 million. The Yankees are currently paying these guys $5.35 million for each hit (12/107) they have contributed to their club this postseason. Oh yea, Jeter is done for the year.
Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher and Robinson Cano together combine paid over 400-500million I say in this postseason combine have 38strikeouts 12-110 I think one word to describe this GARBAGE!
Please listen to the Yanks radio broadcaster, John Sterling, for the remainder of the playoffs. He has new calls for when several Yankee players step to the plate, using his unique style and voice. For Robinson Cano: "Oh no, it's Robinson Cano", or "When it comes to making contact, Cano doesn't know!" For Nick Swisher: "He's a fisher, a misser- it's Nick Swisher!" "What a pissher!" For Curtis Granderson: "When you're lookin' for a choke, the Grandyman Can!" And finally, for Alex Rodriguez: "Oh My GAWD, NOT AROD!"
Whats up with the Yankee's, they can't even buy a hit. Are you kidding me, Anibal Sanchez comes into Yankee Stadium and throws a shutout in a playoof atmosphere. This stadium has no aura, like the old. It's a high end food court, thats it. Yankees Batting Averages Jason Nix 500 Raul Ibanez 429 Derek Jeter 333 out of post season Mark Texeira 333 Ichiro Suzuki 310 Russel Martin 227 Curtis Granderson 130 Nick Swisher 130 Alex Rodriguez 105 Robinson Cano 071 REPEAT Robinson Cano 071 How come he didn't get pinch hit for YANKEE BUMS 2 losses at the famous Yankee Stadium and they still haven't faced Verlander yet.
These aren't my Yankees I know and love. Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher, Alex Rodriguez, Curtis Granderson are all in a slump
Amber Alert.Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher and Alex Rodriguez...Contact the Bronx Police Department if you have knowledge of their whereabouts.
Derek Jeter is out for the rest of the postseason with a broken ankle. This is devastating. The rest of the team really has to stepping up and getting hits, not only Alex Rodriguez but Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano, and Eric Chavez. Russell Martin, Ichiro Suzuki, Mark Texiera are doing decent, so is our pitching. We can still win this, let's start today
Alex Rodriguez is 1 for his last 20 with runners in scoring position and he is booed. However, Nick Swisher is 1 for his last 35 with runners in scoring position, and IT DOESN’T MATTER. That is what I call a pack of booing inconsistency. “I wish there was a stat for the most boos against a team who keeps playing in October” - John Smoltz I have the answer, John. Yankee fans.
Alex Rodriguez got 126 hits this year, good for fifth on the roster and 90 hits behind Derek Jeter. Not bad if you we're say...nick swisher or me or you, but when you're making 29 million per year, that means the yankees paid him 230,000+ per hit. And today he will ride the bench for this deciding game...absolutely pathetic!
Alex Rodriguez was left out of the starting lineup for a decisive Game 5 Friday, a decision could have a lasting impact on Rodriguez’s status with the Yankees.
Hey Mr Girardi - why would you let the media / fans dictate how you coach? Alex Rodriguez 2 for 16, Curtis Granderson 1 for 16, Robinson Cano 2 for 18, Nick Swisher 2 for 15, Ichiro Suzuki 4 for 20, Russel Martin 2 for 14 . Looks to me like you need to bench the entire team if you're going to bench Alex for not hitting!
Nice to see that Curtis Granderson and Nick Swisher get a pass but Alex Rodriguez doesn't. Guess you can't bench a third of the lineup.
Hater-rod - a yankee fan who insists on blaming any and all Yankee losses or struggles on Alex Rodriguez while simultaneously ignoring the failures of other players like Robinson Cano, Curtis Grander son, and Nick Swisher who are all hitting worse than A-Rod in the playoffs
Breaking News CNN 4 New Yorkers are Missing Can you HELP find them there BATS these guys are getting paid millions of dollars Mark Texiera, Nick Swisher,Curtis Granderson and the HOF Alex Rodriguez there BATS were last seen when they played the worst team in the MLB in NY they scored 14 runs vs the Redsox please help them I have a lot of friends who are going crazy if they can't be found so please help them love u guys lol
Now, with one game in which to finally have that breakout, here are the numbers: Ichiro, .200 Batting Average, .200 on-base percentage; Robinson Cano, .111 BA, .158 OBP; Alex Rodriguez, .125 BA, .222 OBP; Nick Swisher, .133 BA, .222 OBP; Russell Martin, .214 BA, .353 OBP; and the worst offender of all, Curtis Granderson, .063 BA, .118 OBP and nine strikeouts in 16 at-bats.
Yankees BA in the playoffs. Ichiro Suzuki .200 Nick Swisher .133 Alex Rodriguez .125 Robinson Cano .111 Curtis Granderson .063 who will be the scapegoat if they get eliminated tonight???
The not ready for prime time players... Curtis Granderson, Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano,and of course Alex Rodriguez, $65 million a year between them and they've done NOTHING this entire series. *** !!! I miss the Yankees of the late 90's
It is time for Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez, and Nick Swisher to stop playing like a collection of *** and realize that they are not nearly doing enough to earn the ridiculous salaries that they make. Everytime they come up it is an automatic out lately:( Their play in this series has been a complete embarrassment, and for one game, these 3 *** need to show that they actually give a *** about the team that overpaid for them, as well as the fans who are still trying to support them. Wake up people, and realize that it is a PRIVILEGE to wear the PINSTRIPES!! So get your *** in gear and GET THE JOB DONE!
Robinson Cano did not do the job. Nick Swisher did come up big. Curtis Granderson has been abysmal at the plate this whole A.L.D.S.! Yes, I am defending Alex Rodriguez! He is not the only Yankee not performing up to his F-G paycheck!! GR!!! ;-(
Jake and Mattingly Biener will replace Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher on the Yankees' ALCS roster, should Baltimore not take the series.
Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher are hitting a combined .038 in their last 52 postseason at bats with runners in scoring position. Talk about $40 million well spent!
I want to choke Alex Rodriguez and I want to slap the snot outta Nick Swisher! I'm sure this will pass!!!
Should Joe Girardi consider benching Alex Rodriguez + Nick Swisher in favor of Eric Chavez and Raul Ibanez? What does everything think?
The Yankees will come home and lose in front of the home crowd. Don't believe me? Whenever I've made predictions where the Yankees are concerned, I've always been right. You can say I'm a clairvoyant when it comes to this team. So we'll sit back and watch tomorrow as Baltimore stuns the Yankees by taking the next two games. It will be another failed post season for the Yankees. Don't believe me? Bet me money on it and you'll lose it. Don't get me wrong. I'm a yankee fan for life. I bleed pinstripes. I just don't see them moving on the post season because this year's team isn't built for it. Look at the fact that Nick Swisher, Alex Rodriguez, and Curtis Granderson have yet to do anything concrete. If the Yankees are going to win and prove me wrong, they will need those three to help them. We Shall See What Happens. Remember this post at the end of the ALCD
So, after a good night's sleep, had time to think. Alex Rodriguez still stinks. But, it occurs to me also that Nick Swisher couldn't hit the ground if he tripped and fell.
Michael Kay is disgusted w/ Alex Rodriguez & Nick Swisher. Ken Singleton is saying they need to take EXTRA BP. I LOVE my Post Game.
My lineup in the postseason: 1. Derek Jeter 2. Ichiro Suzuki 3. Robinson Cano 4. Curtis Granderson 5. Nick Swisher 6. Alex Rodriguez 7. Mark Teixeira 8. Raul Ibanez 9. Francisco Cervelli Just because they are paid the most should not affect where the bat in the lineup if the goal is to win games. Dont know how thats arguable
I never would have thought anyone would walk Nick Swisher to face Alex Rodriguez. Yet, here we are.
New York Yankees trivia: In 2009 the Yankees set a club record with seven players hitting 20 or more home runs in the season: Robinson Cano, Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui, Jorge Posada, Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher and Mark Teixeira.
Alex Rodriguez is a great many things. According to a jury of his peers, he is also the phoniest player in all of Major League Baseball...
232 players responded to Sports Illustrated’s survey asking them to name the phoniest player in baseball. These were the results: •Alex Rodriguez, Yankees 3B - 26% •Nick Swisher, Yankees RF - 14% •Nyjer Morgan, Brewers CF - 11% •Brian Wilson, Giants P - 9% •Brandon Phillips, Reds 2B - 5% I don't understand how Nick Swisher ranks up that high, I think Mark Texiera should be there... I'm a die hard Yankee fan, but A-Rod and Texiera are over-rated...
Alex Rodriguez is a phony. A great, big phony. Rodriguez was voted the phoniest player in baseball in a recent Sports Illustrated poll. The poll consisted of 232 major leaguers, and Rodriguez received 26 percent of the votes. Clearly, A-Rod is not well liked by all of baseball. Rodriguez's teammate, Nick Swisher, ranked second on the not-so-illustrious list, tallying 14 percent of the votes.

Nick Swisher is having a good game so far. Drake is still Canada dry and Alex Rodriguez is playing like he's trash...
Here's tonight's starting lineup for your New York Yankees vs. Mets: Batting 1st the shortstop Derek Jeter, Batting 2nd the center fielder Curtis Granderson, In the 3rd spot, the 1st baseman Mark Texeira, Alex Rodriguez, A-Rod in the cleanup spot batting 4th at third base, Robinson Cano, the 2nd baseman bats 5th, Nick Swisher, bats 6th in right field, Andruw Jones will bat 7th in left field, the cathcer Russell Martin bats 8th, and on the mound batting 9th Andy Pettitte. Tonight's starting lineups is brought to you by Jeep Division of Chrysler LLC, Driven by Jeep. This is New York Yankees Baseball, on the Yankee Radio Network!
My NY Yankees did it again last night...This time, A-Rod stepped up his game. Alex Rodriguez had his 23rd career grand slam and tied Lou Gehrig for the all-time lead in that category and helped send the Yankees to a 6-4 victory over the Braves at Turner Field!!! How did it start? When A-Rod came to the plate, the bases were loaded with one out on singles by Derek Jeter and Curtis Gran...derson and then a walk by Mark Teixeira. We were down (score was 4-0). A-Rod took the fourth pitch for a called strike, fouled off two more, then lined his 10th homer of the season into the front row of the left-field seats. Rodriguez tied it. Robinson Cano then singled and Nick Swisher followed with a two-run homer off Cory Gearrin that gave the Yankees a lead they would keep. Seven batters up, six runs. All at once. Yankees style! :-) Stats: Alex Rodriguez now has 639 homers, 21 behind Willie Mays, who is fourth on the all-time list. But somehing tells me that with all of the milestones A-Rod has reached, last night's re ...
Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher turned a four-run deficit into a satisfying 6-4 win. It was the Yankees' fifth win in a row and their 10th in a span of 12 games, leaving New York alone in first place in the American League East and at 36-25, the best record in the AL. Rodriguez hit his 23rd career grand slam with one out in the eighth inning.
ESPN Video: Alex Rodriguez hit his 23rd career grand slam, matching Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig's record, in the Yanks' 6-4 win.
the Yankees win.God bless the Bronx, Alex Rodriguez and Nick Swisher
Go Yankees. Oh are you making my night. A grand slam for Alex Rodriguez and a two run homer for Nick Swisher. Hope you go all the way. Take us into October to the World Series!
MLB Tampa Bay 0 Ny Yankees 2 Bottom 1st Bottom 1st Raul Ibanez reached 1st on Elliot Johnson's throwing error scoreing Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez with 2 out. On the play, Robinson Cano advances to 3rd. Runners on 1st and 3rd with Nick Swisher due up.
KC rookie left-hander Will Smith loses big league debut to Yankees New York (AP) — Will Smith’s mom shook her head in disbelief when Curtis Granderson homered, clasped her hands behind her head after Alex Rodriguez hit his second homer off her son and couldn’t bear to watch when Nick Swisher hit a popup. Kay Smith had about as rough a time sitting in the stands in Yankee Stadium for her son’s big league debut as the 22-year-old lefty did on the mound. Smith was given a rude welcome to the big leagues by New York’s lineup of All-Stars, not able to make it out of the fourth inning as the Kansas City Royals lost to the Yankees 8-3 Wednesday night. “She was nervous. She’s been like that since I was in high school,” Smith said. “She and my dad ... my dad used to pace around the stadium. They always get nervous and always will be.” Smith’s sister and brother-in-law also made the trip to the Bronx from Georgia to see his first start, and he began with an out for the scrapbook: He got Derek ...
Yankees 7, Tigers 6: Ugly, But We'll Take It Big offensive contributions came from Alex Rodriguez and Russell Martin, who each had a home run in the game. Nick Swisher doubled twice and Mark Teixeira drove in the game-tying run in the 8th inning with a sac-fly.
Home run fest for NY with two jacks from Eric Chavez + one each from Alex Rodriguez, Nick Swisher and Russell Martin. Leave some for tom.
