McCann at first comes back to bite Yanks

NEW YORK -- The issue Saturday wasn't whether Brian McCann is comfortable in New York. He may be, he may not be, but that wasn't the question after the New York Yankees' 6-4 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Whatever McCann thinks of New York, he didn't come here to play first base. He was willing to go there when the Yankees asked, willing to help out on a team that constructed a roster with an injury-prone starter (Mark Teixeira) and no other true first baseman.

Francisco Cervelli getting chance to catch while Brian McCann plays first base

In baseball parlance, the day game after a night game is historically shorthand for a few things: unconventional lineups, unusual defensive alignments and, sometimes, a day off for a starting catcher in need of rest.

McCann brings out best in McCarthy

NEW YORK -- During Brandon McCarthy's short time as a Yankee, Brian McCann has been in his ear. To McCann, McCarthy's sinker/cutter/curveball combination makes him like a much taller Tim Hudson. "He's got top-of-the-rotation stuff," McCann said. "We are really glad to have him." Two starts in, that's an understatement. McCarthy threw six dominant innings Saturday, leading the Yankees to a 7-1 victory over the Reds, allowing just six hits, including a solo homer, no walks and striking out nine.
