MLB’s 11 Burning Questions for the New Year »

Even though we are in the thick of Bowl Season and the NFL Playoffs are looming large on the sports landscape, it’s never too early to start thinking about the 2011 Baseball Season. This offseason brought a flurry of activity. Some teams got healthy, while others weren’t so lucky. As with every baseball season, there are plenty of [...]

A Deep Look at Andy Pettitte’s Chances for the »

After the 2008 season—a season where he pitched better than he had in years—Mike Mussina abruptly retired. Never mind that his ERA was the lowest it had been since 2001; likewise his WAR—the lowest since 2001. And never mind that Moose had won 20 games for the first time in career, putting him at 270 wins for his career. 300 [...]

Andy Pettitte Posturing? Looking at The Yankees’ »

The Pearl River Hotel is the type of dusty old Irish pub where you don't wonder when the daytime regulars got to the bar, you wonder if they've ever actually left. Outsiders are met with steely glances of suspicion and the jukebox's only practical use is as a coat hanger.It's not a place you go to meet your future wife or win a fist-pumping [...]

Here Is A Bad Idea: Bartolo Colon In New York Yankee »

The name Bartolo Colon and the New York Yankees should never be linked in a sentence again this offseason. Yes, Colon won the 2005 American League Cy Young Award, but that is not what resonates in my memory. Back in 2008, the Red Sox were the only team interested in signing the overweight pitcher, who stood at 5’11" and tipped the [...]

New York Yankees: It’s Déjà Vu All Over Again »

Let’s take a walk down memory lane. Not many people are aware of the deep history of the Atlanta Braves. This is a team whose roots go all the way back to 1869, in Cincinnati, where they were the first established baseball team in the history of the game, the Cincinnati Red Stockings. After trips to Boston—complete with a name change [...]

All-Time Yankees vs. All-Time Red Sox: People Will »

Field of Dreams: James Earl Jones (Terrence Mann) to Kevin Costner (Ray Kinsella): "Ray, people will come Ray." "They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past.  "Of course, we won't mind [...]

Fantasy Baseball 2011 Projection: How Should We Value »

Phil Hughes was the toast of baseball through May as he appeared nearly unhittable.  He was 6-1 over the first two months to go along with a 2.72 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 57 strikeouts over 56.2 innings of work.  Over the next four months, however, he was not nearly as effective. For the entire season, he posted the following line: 18 [...]

Yankee Clipper for the Kid: The Biggest Trade That »

As the new year comes to a close with the Red Sox being a very early favorite for the American League, let's take a look back at one of the "greatest" trades that never happened. The Yankees and the Red Sox rivalry is easily the biggest, and most heated in all of sports. In the 1950s, Ted Williams, the greatest hitter of all time, was the [...]

Going from Good To Great: Why the Yankees Need To Sign »

I have mentioned this a few times already, but he is worth the attention again. Rafael Soriano is still a free agent, available and on the market. Whatever it is shocking considering he was the AL’s dominate closer in 2010 with the Tampa Bay Rays. Even before Cliff Lee’s decision, Soriano as a player would have been more than [...]

Joakim Soria to the New York Yankees? Royals Bullpen »

Royals closer Joakim Soria has recently said to Mexican newspaper Vanguard he would not exercise his no-trade clause if a deal were in place with the Yankees.  It must be noted that he also said he was open to playing on other teams, essentially anywhere. However, the big news involved in this is that he would be willing to go to New York [...]
