    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

    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 […]

    Picture Of The Day: He Got His What Pounded?

    It looks like the people at ESPN have their heads stuck in the gutter again.  Yes, the Toronto Blue Jays did light up New York Yankees pitcher Bartolo Colon to the tune of six hits and eight runs in the first inning of Thursday night’s game, but the reference to acts of aggravated sodomy seems […]

    It Was 80s Night At The Skydome Last Night (Pics)

    The 80s and early 90s were certainly a good time to be a fan of the Toronto Blue Jays.  Not only did the team finish with a record above .500 in every season from 1983 to 1993, but they also made the playoffs five times between 1985 and 1993, and won back-to-back World Series Championships […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/11/11 — Robinson Cano

    Robinson Cano entered the All-Star break with only 15 home runs thus far through the first half of the 2011 MLB regular season, the second lowest total of the eight players involved in the State Farm Home Run Derby.  That didn’t matter when the competitors stepped into the batter’s box last night at Chase Field, […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/10/11 — C.C. Sabathia

    Every team in Major League Baseball wants to head into the All-Star break on a winning note.  The Yankees were looking to just that against their division rivals, the Tampa Bay Rays.  It would not be an easy task, as the Rays sent All-Star pitchers James Shields to the mound, but luckily for the Yankees, […]
