New York Yankees’ Alex Rodriguez Was Loved? »

A-Rod, A-Fraud or Alex Rodriguez. There was a time when Alex Rodriguez was widely considered the best baseball player alive. Those days are long gone. We are now reduced to Oompa Loopma jokes and pictures of him making out with himself. Rodriguez has 649 career home runs and 1,956 RBI, both good for fifth all-time. We should be celebrate not [...]

Yankees’ Vidal Nuno Making NAIA Alumni Proud »

Vidal Nuno was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 48th round of the 2009 MLB draft from Baker University. He had spent five years in the minors until making his first start for the New York Yankees on May 13 against the team that originally drafted him. Nuno pitched five scoreless innings and struck out three in a 7-0 shutout of the [...]

New York Yankees Sign Washington Wild Things Ace Chris »

You can never have enough pitching. And the New York Yankees have proven over time that they will sign anyone from anywhere if they think they can help their organization.  The Washington Wild Things’ Chris Smith of the Independent Frontier League has had his contract purchased by the New York Yankees.

Former Yankee Shane Spencer Hired as Hitting/3B Coach »

The five-time Atlantic League Champion Somerset Patriots have hired Shane Spencer as their hitting and third base coach. For those who don’t remember, Shane Spencer was in large part responsible for one of the greatest playoff moments in the history of the game.

Alex Rodriguez’s Hatred Has Reached Barry Bonds »

Barry Bonds is the ultimate villain in baseball and the significance of his accomplishments never garnered the respect it deserved; 7 MVP awards, hammering a single season record of 73 home runs, and breaking Hank Aaron’s all time HR record (762 to 755), just to name a few.  The steroids issue continually followed him around, and he [...]

Addition of Michael Pineda Strengthens Yankees »

The New York Yankees have done very little this offseason—no blockbuster trades, no scandals. It has been pretty low key. That is, until now. It’s apparent that the Yankees are indeed looking to build upon a rotation that boasts CC Sabathia and Ivan Nova. With the trade for Michael Pineda, they now have a formidable rotation that [...]

The A-Rod Headlines Continue: When Is Enough Really »

Whether he is dodging reporters while hanging with mysterious blondes in Toronto, dating superstar actresses, or confessing to the use of performance enhancers, there always seems to be some sort of drama attached to this guy. For those who lack publicity, there is always opportunity [...]

Has Major League Baseball Lost the Marketing Battle? »

Rumours are running rampant about baseball losing it appeal to masses. Except through nearly 50 games, total attendance is nearly on par with 2010 (36,594).  If everything is good, why does baseball seems like it is stuck in the doldrums when compared to the marketing of say the NFL, NBA and even the NHL?  The last big baseball [...]

Derek Jeter: A Yankee Till the End »

I previously wrote that Derek Jeter is as reliable as they come.  That is correct despite some commenting that his lack or decline of defensive skills makes him a liability. Both statements are inherently correct.  There is no sufficient replacement for the Captain at this point in time.  And since he is close, precisely 74 hits [...]

Even Late in Career, Derek Jeter Is as Reliable as »

Derek Jeter provides zero risk to any club lucky enough to have his services. In light of Jeter's down year, fans, experts, statisticians, managers and GMs have all thrown in their two cents.  The conensus on Jeter is that, despite all the hoopla surrounding his free agency and winning his fifth Gold Glove, his career is nearing an end.
