Yanks vs. Dodgers Series — Cano a Superhero

Three years ago I was in my friend’s dorm room watching the Yanks lose another first round of the playoffs (yes, they don’t win every year), which were to be the final games in pinstripes for both manager Joe Torre and third basemen Alex Rodriguez. I remember Yanks fans booing A-Rod every day as a … Continue reading

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

Super Friends: Jeter and Beyond Sport

The Yankees’ shortstop and captain, Derek Jeter, was recently named as one of the newest ambassadors for Beyond Sport. The organization’s stated goal is to promote social change through sports. 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

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

Reflections from the Caribbean: Let them eat dope

This past week I was in a state of near-total lethargy. Things like this happen when you’re on a cruise. News was the heinous representation of the real world myself and 3,000 other untanned corpulent people onboard were avoiding like norovirus. The best we could do with keeping up was the big screen on the … 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

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

Backwards K

My name is Backwards K, and I live and die by my fantasy sports teams. Ever since I traded Kaz Ishii and a can of Dr. Pepper to Warning Track Power for the immortal Brady Anderson (I’ve known the man for 15 years. No, not Brady Anderson. WTP), I’ve loved fantasy sports (and I’m pretty … Continue reading
