Yankees hope late homer will jump-start Giancarlo Stanton
As the rest of the Yankees clobbered Cleveland pitching throughout their lopsided victory on Tuesday night, Giancarlo Stanton only contributed outs — and strikeouts. Hitless going into the top of the ninth, Stanton had one final opportunity to get himself going — and he may have done so. Stanton capped off a 12-3 win with...

Yankees’ Brett Gardner delivers after getting start over Clint Frazier

Trump accuses Chris Wallace of siding with Joe Biden in first presidential debate
President Trump in his first tweet following Tuesday’s first presidential debate accused moderator Chris Wallace of siding with his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.

Yankees needed just one game to change the narrative
CLEVELAND — The good people of Northeast Ohio wouldn’t take this as a compliment, and in their defense, it probably isn’t intended as one. But never, in this stellar ballpark’s 27-year history, has Progressive Field felt more like Yankee Stadium. It can’t be merely the absence of a hostile crowd, because that didn’t stop the...

A hot mess of a debate, and a bad plan by Trump: Goodwin
A hot mess does not make for a great debate. Or an interesting one or even an entertaining one. America was mistreated Tuesday. A highly anticipated show down in a closely fought presidential election in a deeply divided country had the potential to be a clarifying moment. Instead, it was a sweaty, formless flop. Worse,...
CNN’s Dana Bash calls first presidential debate a ‘s—show’
CLEVELAND, Ohio — CNN’s chief political correspondent Dana Bash unapologetically called Tuesday evening’s chaotic presidential debate a “s— show” live on the air.

Aaron Judge shows why he’s so important to Yankees: Sherman
You could have a fine debate this year about who is the Yankees’ Most Valuable Player, DJ LeMahieu or Luke Voit? The guy who led the majors in batting average or the guy who led the majors in homers? You go back and forth, and forth and back and the answer is … Aaron Judge....

This is what Yankees dreamed of when they landed Gerrit Cole
The remarkable thing is that Gerrit Cole was merely part of the chorus Tuesday night. The Yankees greeted the American League playoffs with a haymaker that not only flattened the Cleveland Indians, 12-3, but certainly must have been heard in other notable precincts such as St. Petersburg, Fla., and Houston. Maybe even Los Angeles. Everyone...

Two angry words Jets’ defense must play with vs. Broncos
Play pissed off. The Jets say they’re pissed off at being 0-3. Their fans are perpetually pissed off at being 0-for-50 (and-counting) in years without a championship. So, when the Jets host the 0-3 Broncos on Thursday night at MetLife Stadium, there’s only one way they should play: Like they’re pissed off. If the Jets...
