    Joe Girardi will not be back next season as manager of the New York Yankees, sources told David Kaplan of ESPN 1000 in Chicago on Thursday. Girardi just concluded a four-year, $16 million contract, and he and the team agreed to part ways, sources said. They will make an announcement later Thursday. Girardi, 53, and the Yankees came within one game of going to the World Series this year, losing to the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series. In 10 years at the helm, Girardi won one World Series and made the playoffs six times....

    The Bombers KO’d Keuchel and the Astros 5-0 in Game 5 on Wednesday at the Stadium, and will take a 3-2 series lead back to Houston, with a chance to get back to the World Series for the first time since they last won it all in 2009. Masahiro Tanaka struck out eight, walked one and allowed three hits over seven scoreless innings, as the Yankees improved to a perfect 6-0 in the Bronx during the playoffs.

    Down 4-0 in the seventh inning, the Yankees pulled off yet another stunner, rallying to beat the Astros 6-4 in Game 4 of the ALCS in front of 48,804 at the Stadium. Gary Sanchez delivered a go-ahead, two-run double with one out in the eighth off flamethrower Ken Giles — snapping an 0-for-13 start in the series. Aroldis Chapman recorded the save in the ninth after allowing a walk-off hit to Carlos Correa in Game 2. “Without a doubt, the (Yankee) gods were watching (over us),” Todd Frazier said. “I don’t know what else to say. The series is even...

    Perhaps the greatest World Series game of all time. No DH, no batting gloves, no helmets. Just pure baseball. Today marks the anniversary. David vs Goliath is a valid comparison. Worth watching as this is the only recorded film. Bing Crosby, who was part owner of the Bucs, had this recorded privately and it was found after his death in storage.

    The Yankees pulled off a shocker on Wednesday night, rallying back from an 0-2 series deficit to stun the favored Indians 5-2 in Game 5 at Progressive Field and advance to the ALCS. The Bombers became just the 10th team in MLB history to rally back from an 0-2 deficit en route to winning a best-of-five series.

    Didi Gregorius homered twice, CC Sabathia rolled back the clock with nine strikeouts before turning it over to the bullpen in the fifth inning and the Yankees completed their historic comeback from a daunting deficit, advancing past the Indians with a 5-2 victory on Wednesday night in Game 5 of the American League Division Series presented by Doosan. New York will now face the Houston Astros in the AL Championship Series presented by Camping World. Game 1 is scheduled for Friday at Minute Maid Park. Participating in their fourth elimination game in the past eight days, the Yankees never trailed...

    The 2017 season was going to be an interesting one for the New York Yankees no matter how good the team was going to be on paper. With a new roster setup that aimed to be younger, the mindset for many for the Bronx Bombers was a repeat of last season. Perhaps compete for one of the two Wild Card spots but fall short once again. While that would normally mean riots in the streets of New York, Yankees fans seemed to accept that idea. With more organizational depth than many fans could remember, a reboot/rebuild atmosphere around the club...

    Yankees right fielder Aaron Judge hit his 40th home run of the year Sunday in the fourth inning of the Rangers' Nick Martinez, joining Mark McGwire (1987) as the second player in the history of Major League Baseball to record 40-plus homers as a rookie. In the Yanks' 16-7 victory at Globe Life Park, Judge also became just the fourth Yankee to hit 40 homers in a season in his age-25 season or younger, joining Halll of Famers Mickey Mantle (1956), Joe DiMaggio (1937), Lou Gehrig (1927) and Babe Ruth (1920).

    Gene “Stick” Michael, a beloved Yankees figure who helped build the late-90s dynasty, has died from a heart attack. He was 79. Michael was the Yankees manager in 1981-82 and the GM from 1991-95, when he drafted Derek Jeter and guided the organization during George Steinbrenner’s suspension. Michael was the true architect of the teams that would win four World Series in five years from 1996-2000. Beyond Jeter, he drafted or signed the entire Core Four: Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte and Jorge Posada. After his run as GM, Michael stuck with the organization, serving as the vice-president of major league...

    Commissioner Rob Manfred confirmed Tuesday that the Boston Red Sox used electronic communication from the dugout to steal opponents' signs and relay them to Boston players during games. Baseball's investigation of the Red Sox is ongoing, Manfred said from Fenway Park ahead of Boston's game against Toronto, but he expects it will be completed before the end of the regular season. News of the investigation was first reported by the New York Times. The Red Sox were accused of stealing signs electronically against the Yankees at Fenway Park.

    The league has officially handed down suspensions arising out of yesterday’s fisticuffs between the Tigers and Yankees. Detroit star Miguel Cabrera received the stiffest discipline, with a seven-game ban owing to his “inciting the first bench-clearing incident and fighting.” Cabrera isn’t the only one who’ll take some games of unpaid leave (pending appeal). Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez got four games for throwing punches in the melee — he was fortunate, perhaps, not to take a harsher punishment — while fellow New York backstop Austin Romine got two for his part in the tangle with Cabrera. That could cause the organization...

    NEW YORK -- They're the New York Yankees. They're worth billions. They're built on a foundation of championships stretching back more than a century. There is just no way they don’t go for it when another title is possible. This is the mandate any year, but it's even truer when they've only played in one playoff game since 2012. So the Yankees had to acquire Sonny Gray. The Yankees, under Hal Steinbrenner, are a scary organization for the rest of the baseball. Steinbrenner has handed the player personnel keys over to his GM, Brian Cashman, and the results have been...

    Boycott I’m actually a little surprised by this, if only because it seems in recent years major league sports have been pretty intimidated by the forces of political correctness. Which is to say: They know who will scream and boycott if they don’t give them what they want, and all large, high-profile institutions want to avoid the bad publicity that comes with such things. Oscar Lopez Rivera is a terrorist responsible for more than 100 bombings, but that’s old news. The new news is that Barack Obama commuted his sentence on his way out the door, which makes Rivera a...

    Bob Cerv, who holds the single-season record for home runs by a Major League Baseball player in Kansas City history, died Thursday in Blair, Neb. He was 91. Cerv, who served during World War II, was friends with former President Harry Truman, played basketball and baseball at Nebraska and, as a member of the Yankees, roomed with Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle as they dueled for the home-run title in 1961... In six seasons with the Yankees, Cerv was mostly a part-time outfielder/pinch hitter, but he played in two World Series (1955 and 1956), and the Yankees won the 1956...

    Since a White Sox scout has been a constant figure at the Yankees’ exhibition games to evaluate talent, the industry buzz is the White Sox have targeted the Yankees as a possible trade partner if they decide to move left-handed starter Jose Quintana. Quintana, a former Yankees minor leaguer who was allowed to flee via free agency after he wasn’t placed on the 40-man roster following the 2010 season, is very attractive on several levels for the Yankees and other clubs seeking starting pitching. One, he is 28. Two, he has a 46-46 record with a 3.41 ERA in 154...
