Orioles, Rumors Get Best Of Yankees

After feasting on the minnows of Major League Baseball since the All-Star Break, the shark that is the New York Yankees traveled to the shores of the Chesapeake Bay this weekend to face the floundering Baltimore Orioles—a team headed for their 10th consecutive losing season. Much to the Yankees’ chagrin, however, the Orioles showed they had a little bite of their own, taking two out of three games from the Bronx Bombers and halting New York’s recent surge.


The Yankees successfully avoided a sweep with a much-needed [10-6 win on Sunday], but bad news haunted the team following the victory. Jose Canseco––who authored the infamous book [Juiced](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juiced:_Wild_Times%2C_Rampant_%27Roids%2C_Smash_Hits_%26_How_Baseball_Got_Big) in 2005, whichfinally sparked open debate about the steroids issue in baseball––told WEEI-Radio in Boston on Friday that [he has “stuff”](http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2953302) on Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez that will be disclosed in his new book, which is scheduled for release this fall. During the interview, he called Rodriguez a “hypocrite” who “was not all what he appeared to be,” and when asked if A-Rod had used steroids, Canseco said, “Wait and see.”


With the two losses over the weekend, New York has now dropped to [eight games behind] the first-place Red Sox in the AL East, although they still sit just four behind Cleveland in the Wild Card race.
