While the Yankees have made an unexpected run into the playoff chase, Mark Teixeira hasn’t had a hit in September in the final season of his career. Though the first baseman is going through the worst full season he’s ever had, Teixeira insisted it’s not bittersweet. “I’m actually enjoying it more,” Teixeira said before Thursday’s...

Yankees’ new strategy for helping Aaron Judge snap slump
The Yankees coaching staff hasn’t been able to get Aaron Judge going since his call-up from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Maybe the minor league staff will have better luck. Minor league hitting coordinator James Rowson has been with the Yankees this week and has seen Judge struggle before — though probably not to this extent. “He’s trying...

The radical, dice-rolling bent of Yankees’ new lineup
Say you were tasked with writing a manual on how to build a Yankees champion based on the previous 27. Wouldn’t the very first chapter revolve around finding lefty power – and plenty of it? In 2017 and for the near future – unless your pinstriped watch is set to Bryce Harper time – the...

Mark Teixeira rediscovers star power for one special night
Mark Teixeira knows how to hit a home run. That comes with skill and accumulated knowledge from years of sizing up pitchers and their patterns and their stuff. It’s just that most days now, Teixeira cannot hit a homer. His mind is fertile. His body is decaying. Even he concedes: “My bat is a little...
