Girardi baffled about what’s wrong with Brian McCann’s bat

MINNEAPOLIS — Joe Girardi hasn’t seen a glaring hole in Brian McCann’s swing, but something obviously is behind the left-handed-hitting catcher’s deep slump. “He has had some struggles,” Girardi said of McCann, who took a seat on the bench Friday night against Twins lefty Pat Dean while mired in an 11-for-77 (.143) slump. “I don’t...

Yanks must trade flamethrowers now — before wins fool them

BALTIMORE — The Yankees can continue to fool themselves and believe they are on the edge of the race in the AL East. Reality shows itself in different ways. On a day the Yankees got all they could get from aging CC Sabathia it was the vaunted bullpen that let them down. And there is...

Aroldis Chapman pulls mind-numbing excuse for brain freeze

BALTIMORE — It’s one thing for a pitcher, even one armed with the strength to hit triple-digits with the fastball, to miss location and give up a hit. Nobody who plays baseball is perfect.
