    Picture Of The Day: NY Post 1, A-Rod 0

    Yesterday we informed you that a New York Yankees fan may have been responsible for killing former Libyan tyrant Moammar Gadhafi.  The New York Post was sharing similar information on their front cover this morning, and in doing so, they decided to take the opportunity to throw in a cheap-shot at the Big Apple’s favorite […]

  • This Day In Sports History (October 20th) – Boston Red Sox

    This Day In Sports History (October 20th) – Boston Red Sox

    It was on this day in 2004 that the Boston Red Sox completed the greatest comeback in baseball history.  The Red Sox defeated the Yankees in Game 7 after being down in the ALCS 0-3. This was the first time in baseball history that a team had come back in a series after being down […]

    Picture Of The Day: Tigers Win!

    As most of you may already know, the Detroit Tigers ended the New York Yankees’ season with a 4-3 victory in Game 5 of the ALDS last night.  And if you ask any Tigers fan or Yankees hater to paint a picture of what happened at Yankee Stadium on Thursday, October 6, 2011, chances are […]

    9 Reasons Why This Could Be The Best MLB Post-Season Ever

    The 2011 MLB playoffs kick off tonight, with the Texas Rangers hosting the Tampa Bay Rays followed by the New York Yankees hosting the Detroit Tigers. This year, however, the biggest question going into October isn’t so much, “who will win the World Series,” but instead, “is there any way the playoffs can be half […]

    Yanks’ Catcher Austin Romine Catches A Bee With His Mitt (Video)

    A catcher’s glove is typically used to catch 90 mph fastballs, but Yankees’ catcher Austin Romine found a different use for it during the first game of a double-header against the Tampa Bay Rays today. With a bee swarming around Romine and home plate umpire Scott Barry, the Yankees’ rookie catcher caught the buzzing insect […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/19/11 — Mariano Rivera

    Listening to the sound of Metallica’s “Enter Sandman” blasting on the stadium speakers as Mariano Rivera makes his way out of the bullpen has become a common theme at Yankees games.  Equally common has been the sight of Rivera mowing down batters with his cut fastball and shaking hands with his catcher shortly after earning […]

    9 Reasons Why Mariano Rivera Is The Greatest Closer Of All Time

    Any day now, 41-year-old New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is going to break the all-time saves record. Now, personally, I don’t think the “save” should be as big a deal as it is. One guy gets a “save” after coming on in the bottom of the eight with the bases loaded, nobody out, and […]

    Stat Line Of The Night – 8/25/11 – New York Yankees

    I guarantee the New York Yankees did something yesterday that you, your dad and your grandpa have never seen before in a MLB game. The New York Yankees made history in their rout over the Oakland A’s by slugging not one, not two, but three grand slams. The Yankees, who trailed by six runs at […]

    Who Is This Kid And Why Is He Getting So Many Gifts? (Video)

    A few autographs on his hat, a ball, a signed bat and cotton candy?  Seriously though, is this kid dying?  What’s with all the gifts? Many of these baseball players are good guys and all, but when Derek Jeter and Johnny Damon are signing your hat, another Yankees player is handing you a ball, and […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/11/11 — Robinson Cano

    Sometimes all you really need is one great at bat to earn yourself a spot on our “Stat Line of the Night.”  Robinson Cano proved just that last night, as his New York Yankees played host to the Los Angeles Angels. Cano did manage to record three hits during his four at bats last night, […]

    Torii Hunter Will Return Your Glasses For Free (Video)

    Currently playing out the fourth year of his five-year, $90,000,000 contract, it is probably safe to say that Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter is doing alright from a financial standpoint.  It should therefore come as no surprise to find out that Hunter is not interested in stealing your glasses.  And if you offer him […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/2/11 — Mark Teixeira

    Last night’s game between the Chicago White Sox and the New York Yankees was called after seven innings of play, but those seven innings were all Mark Teixeira needed to do his damage.  The Yankees’ first baseman entered the game with 29 home runs on the season, good enough for second in the Majors.  He […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/26/11 — C.C. Sabathia

    The Seattle Mariners were looking to snap their dreadful 16-game losing streak in New York last night, however, their chances were not looking good as they had to take on starting pitcher C.C. Sabathia, who just so happened to lead the Majors in wins heading into the game, with 14. And you can now add […]
