Fantasy Baseball: Friday News and Notes »

Last Night Rewind The limited slate of games last night did yield some solid performances from the Giants, who took over first place last night. Jonathan Sanchez struck out 12 in seven innings of work yesterday while allowing only one run on four hits. Better still, after walking seven in his last outing he did not walk a batter in last night's [...]

Derek Jeter the Cheater? Say It Ain’t So! »

He is, to me, the only likable Yankee—Curtis Granderson excluded.There's no profundity in hating the New York Yankees, I realize that. A rumpled sportswriter once said that rooting for the Yankees is like rooting for U.S. Steel; that quote could be updated, and you'd substitute Microsoft or Comcast for U.S. Steel.So I'm not the Lone [...]

Yankees Notes: Steinbrenner Memorial, Thompson, the »

There is not much to report on today thanks to the off-day yesterday. Obviously the Yankees start a three game series against the Orioles tonight. A.J. Burnett starts tonight, CC Sabathia goes tomorrow and Sunday is the triumphant return of Andy Pettitte. Also, don’t miss our pieces on Derek Jeter, everybody is overreacting about a play [...]

New York Times Article Profiling Crime One of the »

This article is in response to an article featured in the New York Times, "Crime Blotter Has a Regular: Yankees Caps," by Manny Fernandez. This is the dumbest thing that I've ever had the privilege of reading. People are so close-minded. So because a person commits a crime, they can't be a sports fan, or at least have an allegiance to a home team? [...]

Derek Jeter’s Acting Job Should Not Be Making »

Go ahead, tell me that I have no respect for the integrity of baseball. It's true, I'm the one who thinks all the perjury charges against Roger Clemens should be dropped and that his name and face should be on a plaque in Cooperstown next to Barry Bonds, Alex Rodriguez, and Manny Ramirez.The list of players who have been ostracized from baseball [...]

Derek Jeter Hit by Heater? Is He a Cheater or Pumpkin »

There is some controversy today over whether Derek Jeter was wrong for taking a free base he didn't earn. If you don't know the story, Jeter faked getting hit by a pitch, and if they had an "Best Performance by an Athlete" category for the Oscars, he'd have claimed himself a nomination. The ump bought it and gave him the base. Afterward, Jeter [...]

Derek Jeter’s Acting Has Been Blown Way Out of »

Last night, Derek Jeter created one of the most controversial moments of this entire baseball season by pretending to get hit by a pitch from Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chad Qualls and was awarded first base. With a national TV audience and with this game being in the middle of a heated pennant race, Rays manager Joe Maddon found himself ejected [...]

Would Instant Replay Ruin Baseball? Derek Jeter Knows »

It makes me chuckle.  Really, it does.  I sit back and listen to people, both fans and broadcasters whine and moan about instant replay in baseball.  They point fingers at Derek Jeter’s infamous home run in 1996 against the Baltimore Orioles.  They cast aspersions at Jim Joyce for blowing the call that cost Armando [...]

New York Yankees: One More September Call-Up Could Be »

Via Chad Jennings: Forgot to mention this pregame, but when Girardi was asked whether Royce Ring would be the last of the September call-ups, he hesitated. Then he said, “Don’t write that.” Sounds like there’s a good chance someone else will be here eventually. Andrew Brackman? The most likely players to get called-up [...]

Dan Johnson Needed Two Pitches To Beat Phil Hughes and »

Making his first start in nine days, Phil Hughes was dominant for four innings. Perfect actually. He wouldn’t be perfect on this night. In fact, he wouldn’t even get his team a victory, thanks to Dan Johnson. The Rays designated hitter who spent last season playing in Japan needed two swings to carry his team to their second win in [...]
