  • Stat Line Of The Night — 4/19/12 — Curtis Granderson

    Stat Line Of The Night — 4/19/12 — Curtis Granderson

    After losing two of their first three games to the Minnesota Twins, the New York Yankees were hoping to salvage a series split with a victory last night.  They would do just that, thanks in part to the bat of Curtis Granderson. The Yankees’ center fielder entered the game with his batting average barely over […]

    These Blonde Twins Were At The Twins Game Last Night (Video)

    Talk about a coincidence! During last night’s game between the New York Yankees and the Minnesota Twins in the Bronx, YES Network cameras caught these two identical twins sitting in the first row with their matching outfits.  That seemed to be the prefect time for Michael Kay to promote the network’s broadcast for today’s game […]

    Baseball Bling: 15 Best World Series Championship Rings

    This past Saturday was “Ring Day” at Busch Stadium in St. Louis—the day every member of the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals (plus every other employee of the franchise) had been waiting for since the team won its 11th World Series Championship back in October. And as it turns out, it was well worth the wait. Rubies, […]

    9 Most Unlikely World Series MVPs

    The 2011 World Series is in full swing, with the Rangers headed back to St. Louis for Game 6 with a 3-2 series lead over the Cardinals thanks to a huge 4-2 victory last night. And in such a tightly contested series—it looks like we have a pretty decent shot at a Game 7 for […]

    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 […]
