Armed for the pennant race? The Phillies and others looked on as the Milwaukee Brewers landed CC Sabathia and as the Chicago Cubs worked out a six-player deal for Rich Harden. Twenty-one days are left until the non-waiver trading deadline, so other clubs have plenty of time to acquire talented arms for the stretch run. That search may stay centered on the American League. Here are a few other AL hurlers rumored to be available for the right price: Huston Street, Oakland A's. The closer could make some team a pennant contender.

You know times are bad when even the New York Yankees say they have to cut payroll. Under the new labor contract, the luxury tax threshold will be $189 million after the 2013 season, and managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said Thursday his goal is to be under it. This season's payroll is around $210 million, he said. "I don't think it's an unrealistic goal," he said. "My goals are normally considered a requirement," he added - we think to make sure people know he's the boss.

When Yankees tweet, the earth trembles. (Actually, that's true anytime anyone anywhere takes to Twitter, we've been told.) New York third baseman Alex Rodriguez tweeted on Tuesday that he had recovered enough from hip surgery to be cleared by his surgeon to play in rehab games. Cue the rejoicing (or bitter, knowing shrugs) in the Bronx. One problem: A-Rod's message kind of contradicted what Yankees' GM Brian Cashman had told ESPN New York on Monday. Cashman remonstrated, forcefully.

Hank Steinbrenner thinks the New York Yankees are in a strong position to repeat as World Series champions due to the acquisition of pitcher Javier Vazquez and outfielder Curtis Granderson. Vazquez, obtained from Atlanta, joins a rotation that includes CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte and either Phil Hughes or Joba Chamberlain. Granderson, acquired from Detroit, takes over in centerfield from Melky Cabrera, who was sent to the Braves in the Vazquez trade by general manager Brian Cashman.

All these years later, Joe Carter has only one complaint about the home run he hit to win the 1993 World Series: It doesn't draw the attention it deserves. The former Toronto slugger said baseball fans and historians rank his Game 6, bottom-of-the-ninth, three-run homer off Phillies closer Mitch Williams below moments such as Kirk Gibson's pinch-hit homer off Dennis Eckersley in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. Highlights of big home runs by Bill Mazeroski and Bobby Thomson often get shown far more than Carter's shot, too. "Mine, it will make the top 10 but it's never No. 1, it's never been No. 2, it's always been in the middle of the pack," Carter said yesterday.

Jorge Posada seemed happy to be back in the Yankees' lineup, and let his bat send the message. Posada had two hits in his first game back since a dispute over his role on the team, and Alex Rodriguez homered twice as visiting New York stopped a six-game losing streak with a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays last night. With Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner in attendance, New York ended its longest skid since dropping seven in a row from April 20-27, 2007.

NEW YORK - With a rookie and two retreads following CC Sabathia in the Yankees' rotation, few pundits predicted New York would win the AL East this year. Yet in a drama-filled season in which the Yankees celebrated Derek Jeter's 3,000th hit and Mariano Rivera's 602d save and watched Jorge Posada's decline, it was the surprise pitching of Ivan Nova, Bartolo Colon, and Freddy Garcia that helped push the $200 million behemoth in the Bronx to the best record in the league (97-65). "Our pitchers threw as well as they could this year," manager Joe Girardi said Thursday night after a 3-2 loss to Detroit in Game 5 of the division series.

With 27 games left in the regular season, the panic in Gotham appears to be in full bloom. In an interview with the New York Post after his team was mauled by the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday to fall into a first-place tie in the AL East with those upstart Orioles, Yankees boss Hal Steinbrenner said he was "frustrated" by the Bombers' swoon. "We're all frustrated," Steinbrenner told the Post. "The fans are frustrated. I know that. We all expect great things out of these guys. . . . The fans and my family, we expect them to push through now. " Steinbrenner then softened his criticism with: "I'm sure they will.

TAMPA, Fla. - They've had Ruth and Gehrig, Mantle and DiMaggio. Those four represent the Mount Rushmore for the New York Yankees, a franchise with enough great players that it could probably use the side of another mountain, too. Derek Jeter thinks you'd have to be bored or looking for a story to discuss where he belongs in the pecking order. Larry Bowa was neither bored nor looking for a story as he finished his on-field duties as a Phillies coach Wednesday afternoon at the Carpenter Complex.

The New York Yankees say they aren't for sale. The Daily News reported Thursday that there were rumors in Major League Baseball and New York's banking circles that the Steinbrenner family "is exploring the possibility of selling the Yankees. " Not so, says Yankees managing partner Hal Steinbrenner. "I just learned of the Daily News story. It is pure fiction," he said in a statement. "The Yankees are not for sale. I expect that the Yankees will be in my family for many years to come.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Alex Rodriguez homered twice, Jorge Posada had two hits, and the New York Yankees stopped a six-game losing streak with a 6-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. With Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner in attendance, New York ended its longest skid since dropping seven in a row from April 20 to 27, 2007. Posada doubled and singled while batting seventh as the designated hitter. It was his first start since he pulled himself out of the lineup Saturday soon after he was set to bat ninth.

Sam Fuld and B.J. Upton both hit two-run homers to help the Tampa Bay Rays rally and hand the visiting New York Yankees their sixth consecutive loss with a 6-5 victory last night. Yankees starter A.J Burnett (4-3) sailed through five innings and had a four-run advantage before imploding in the sixth. After Fuld homered and Matt Joyce drove in a run with a single, Upton ended Burnett's night with his two-run drive that put Tampa Bay up 6-5. Curtis Granderson had given the Yankees a 5-1 lead on his three-run shot off Rays ace David Price in the fifth.

  The house that Ruth, er, Ty builds It was extreme makeover day at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. No, the Yankees weren't revamping their banged-up lineup. The reality TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition took to the field and surprised a New York family with the promise to rebuild its home. Host Ty Pennington introduced the Lutz family of East Setauket, N.Y., before the Yankees played the Mets. Shouting through a bullhorn, Pennington brought the Lutzes out of the stands to join him in front of the pitcher's mound.
