Kevin Long Uses Mindcontrol Technology to Defeat Dodgers

It looks like the Yankees may have stolen the US soccer team’s mojo. Down 6-2 in the 9th Inning against their new faux-rivals, the Dodgers, the Yankees came screaming back, scoring four runs off closer Jonathan Broxton, and then capping off the win in the 10th Inning with a two-run shot off pitcher Greg Sherrill … Continue reading

It annually awards $1 million dollars to sports programs around the world that prove to have a positive impact in their communities. But all of … Continue reading

Phil Hughes is Already an Ace

CC Sabathia and his 7 year-$161MM contract? Expensive but proving worthwhile after winning a championship in his first year. He clearly could afford the Sizzler after hoisting the Commissioner’s Trophy (Shakespearean aside: Really MLB? Does your marketing department suck to the point that you can’t even name your championship trophy something cool? I mean, your … Continue reading

Girardi Unveils New Strategy

During their Sunday game against the Blue Jays, Yankees’ manager Joe Girardi got himself ejected from the game when he got in the face of umpire Bruce Dreckman while arguing over the strike zone. This came directly after Nick Swisher was called out on a check swing that was neither a swing nor a strike … Continue reading

No Botha With Joba

Well, it was a great Memorial Day weekend. Nice weather, quiet brunches, Fleet Week, and a bunch of matinee Yankees games. The Yankees have now entered into a more relaxing part of their schedule. This past weekend they played against Cleveland, currently they are facing Baltimore, and up until the 15th (when they face Philadelphia, … Continue reading

Mets Challenge Yankees' Claim to New York

This last homestand has been hard to watch to say the least. Going 2-1 against the Twins was okay, but then splitting with Boston, being swept by Tampa, and on top of all that, losing to the Mets…that was tough. Unlike some Yankees fans and all Mets fans, I don’t actually have a hatred or … Continue reading

Red Sox Roundup: "Nothing's Gonna Get in the Way of Whatever it Takes"

The “Boston Red Sox” Ohhhkay. Somebody cue the sound of brass tacks and chases being cut to. “We are who we thought we are” or something. Ah yes, but remember a month ago when I handicapped the Sox under the general rubric of “boy, these guys blow”? Well, I’ve changed my tune. Sort of. After … Continue reading

Yankees Protesting: Hell No, We Won't Go!

The New York Yankees are protesting their 7-6 loss to the Boston Red Sox on the grounds that no indication was given that pitcher Josh Beckett was injured when he left the game. Since Beckett was presumed injured, reliever Manny Delcarmen had as much time as he needed to warm up. To be fair, at … Continue reading

REVENGE!

Last night the Yankees had to face off against their former teammate Johnny Damon, now a member of the Detroit Tigers. Damon homered against his former team, a run that sealed their defeat in a 5-4 loss. Prior to the game Damon had spent most of his time in a walk-in freezer, as to be … Continue reading

An Appeal to the Red Sox from a Yankees' Fan

The Red Sox have been pretty terrible so far this year, currently holding a modest 10-11 record, which ties the Blue Jays for third/fourth place. Prior to these last two games against Toronto, they were even farther down the totem. Now, as a Yankees fan (who is currently only subbing in for your good Boston … Continue reading
