New York Yankees: Why the MLB Hot Stove Just Got a »

What do the years 2001, 2003 and 2010 all have in common? They all involve deep playoff runs and subsequent disappointing playoff exits for the New York Yankees. Following the 2001 and 2003 seasons, the Yankees acquired a dynamic hitter and veteran pitcher in each offseason, Jason Giambi and Mike Mussina after '01 and [...]

Yankees Message To Miami Heat: You Can’t Buy A »

“In this fall, this is very tough, in this fall I'm going to take my talents to South Beach and join the Miami Heat.” With that one sentence, a city that once loved NBA superstar LeBron James began to burn his jerseys, t-shirts and anything else with the number 23 on it. He had become the second most hated man in the city, second only [...]

Colby Lewis Spectacular, Fuels Texas Rangers To »

It is hard to fathom a better ending. Former Texas Ranger Alex Rodriguez, who once signed for a quarter of a billion dollars and juiced with the team, was at the plate. Closer Neftali Feliz was on the mound, ready to get the one out that the franchise has always been waiting for. An adrenaline-filled fastball missed for ball one, but then three [...]

ALCS 2010: A Texas Sized Beat Down Over The New York »

It almost seemed that it was over before it started.

The Rangers' ballpark is quiet, at least for now.

This Friday night is far different from any other Friday night in [...]

ALCS 2010: Win or Go Home As Yankees’ Phil »

In that game, Hughes was hit hard, giving up 10 hits and seven [...]

Joe DiMaggio Always Rose To the Occasion »

Shaking his head and flashing a deprecatory grin, Joe DiMaggio started talking about it again. "There has to be an element of luck to it," he modestly told a group of baseball writers, "but the one thing that sticks in my mind is that whenever I kept the streak alive with a scratch hit, I always came through in that same game with an honest [...]

ALCS 2010: 5 Ways the New York Yankees Can Pull Out a »

Away from home, down 3-2 in the series, the New York Yankees have their backs against the wall. The Texas Rangers have been phenomenal throughout the series, and they only need one more win to advance to their first World Series in franchise history.

ALCS 2010: Buffalo, the New York Yankees Are Not Your »

I moved back to Buffalo after being gone for 31 years. I guess I’m getting old, but I don’t remember so much interest in the Yankees back then. It’s probably just that my mind is going.In any case, there are an awful lot of Yankee fans in Buffalo—or else it's just an act of support for locally owned New Era Caps that half [...]
