A-Rod Hits 600: Alex Rodriguez Becomes Fastest to 600 »

Finally: New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez has hit his 600th career home run. After 46 at-bats, including a 0-for-17 streak, without a home run and dwindling production since he hit home run No. 599, Rodriguez made history. The two-run shot came in his first at-bat on Wednesday afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays . A-Rod drove a 2-0 [...]

The Curious Case of Joba Chamberlain »

Remember in 2007 when the Yankee community heard about this kid in the minor leagues who some dubbed better than Hughes?   A kid who had a fierce mentality on the mound, whose fastball could hit triple digits, and with a slider that not even Joe Dimaggio could hit?   His name is Joba Chamberlain, or as most people thought back in 2007, [...]

New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez: The Most »

As Alex Rodriguez continues his quest for 600 career home runs, he is beginning to show his true colors through his self-centered persona. Rodriguez is the most egocentric player in Major League Baseball. It's obvious that A-Rod is trying to hit No. 600. Nearly every out he records is a strikeout of a long fly ball. It's almost [...]

New York Yankees: Buckled Up for Turbulence in the »

If you want a tidy little starting point for this current Yankee slide, let us travel back to the salad days of pre-trade deadline baseball. Crude oil was shooting uncontrollably into a major body of water, Lindsay Lohan was incarcerated by the state of California, and everyone thought that Bill Cosby was a corpse. It was a more innocent time. [...]

Could Brandon Laird Be Bronx Bound? »

The Yankees have been searching the trade market all season long for a veteran backup who can play third base, so they could occasionally rest Alex Rodriguez. They even went as far as nearly making a deal with the Boston Red Sox for Mike Lowell. However, it seems possible, though a long shot, that they already have a capable backup in their [...]

Alex Rodriguez Ice Cold Since Homer No. 599 »

Alex Rodriguez has had a down year for himself this season, but his numbers during his most recent slump, since he’s hit home run No. 599, have been dragged down even further.

State of the New York Yankees: August 4, 2010 »

Even after an early Mark Teixeira home run (23), Ricky Romero and the Toronto Blue Jays were too much for the New York Yankees. As of today, the Yankees have lost three consecutive games, four of their last five.  But yesterday, they lost something more. The division lead. With an 8-2 Yankee loss to the Blue Jays, and a Tampa bay 6-4 victory [...]

MLB Post-Trade Deadline Playoff Preview: Who’s »

They say nothing is certain but death and taxes. Well I'd like to add the Angels winning the division to that list. As the leaves begin to color, the kids go back to school, and the Los Angeles Angles slowly begin to run away with the AL West. Wait a minute. They are 8 games back?! The Year of the Pitcher has generously spoiled baseball fans, [...]

Yankees Fall to 2nd Place »

The Yankees lost their third straight game and with their 8-2 loss tonight they have fallen a game in back of the Tampa Bay Rays and are now in 2nd place in the AL East. Here are some notes: Dustin Moseley wasn’t terrible outside of a couple of mistakes that hurt him big time. He pitched 7.1 innings and allowed 5 earned runs. Kerry [...]

Alex Rodriguez: Why He is Pressing During the Pursuit »

Watching Alex Rodriguez swing for his 600th home run has been a frustrating experience. “Strikeout, groundout, popout” seems to appear in the box score every night. As he approaches plate appearance number 50 since home run number 599, it has become more and more evident that A-Rod is pressing. Here are four of Alex’s five [...]
