  • The Stat Line of the Night – 7/22/10 – Alex Rodriguez

    The Stat Line of the Night – 7/22/10 – Alex Rodriguez

    Yankees fans were treated to some fireworks last night as the lowly Royals came to town. Journeyman Bruce Chen took the bump for the hapless Royals, and the Bronx Bombers wiped off their drool long enough to batter him around. Chief among them was the surging Alex Rodriguez. ARod went off on Chen and the […]

  • Yankees’ Ball Boy Makes A Great Grab

    Yankees’ Ball Boy Makes A Great Grab

    If they Yankees were ever looking for some help in the field, they may not have to look too far.  It appears as though they have a diamond in the rough of their own working the third base line at Yankee Stadium, and his name is not Alex Rodriguez. To be brutally honest, we don’t […]

  • Picture Of The Day: What Kind Of A Discount Is That?

    Picture Of The Day: What Kind Of A Discount Is That?

    It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what city this sign can be found in.  You simply have to love the respect that Bostonians have for their hometown Red Sox fans.  Twenty percent off?  Sounds like a great deal!  As for the Yankee fans, I wonder how much “F-Off” will save them on […]

  • Yankees Fan On Cell Phone Takes Ball To The Face

    Yankees Fan On Cell Phone Takes Ball To The Face

    We have seen baseball fans make some extraordinary catches at the ball park before, whether it is with a pizza box, or with an ice cream in their hand.  As for this Yankees fan, his attempt to catch a ground-rule double with his face was anything but extraordinary.  In fact, it was downright embarrassing. To […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 6/21/10 – Justin Upton

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/21/10 – Justin Upton

    Justin Upton has struggled a bit this season early, and so have his Diamondbacks.  Coming into last night the Arizona Diamondbacks were last place in the NL West and beginning a series with the Yankees that seemed sure to end badly for them.  Upton had other plans, however, and Arizona was able to overcome the […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    The Stat Line of the Night — 6/20/10 — C.C. Sabathia

    C.C. Sabathia had a pretty bad May.  For most pitchers, a 1-2 record and a 5.15 ERA wouldn’t have been catastrophic for a month, but the expectations for the former Cy Young award winner are a bit higher.  Things did not look to get any easier this month, with C.C. facing both Johan Santana and […]

  • Blue Jays’ Ball Boy Disciplined by Ump, Officer and Mascot (Video)

    Blue Jays’ Ball Boy Disciplined by Ump, Officer and Mascot (Video)

    Catch balls that are ruled foul and steer clear of those called in-play.  Sounds simple, but life as a ball boy is not always as easy as it seems.  One wrong move and you can have everyone against you, including umpires, police officers, and mascots.  That was the case for one ball boy this weekend […]

  • Your Pork Chop On A Stick Is Not Safe Around Yankee Fans

    Your Pork Chop On A Stick Is Not Safe Around Yankee Fans

    After 27 years of calling the Metrodome their home, the Minnesota Twins had undergone a makeover heading into the 2010 MLB season.  Not only do they have themselves a new ballpark, the outdoor confines of the Target Center, but they also have a new ballpark menu. One of the featured new additions to that menu […]

  • Yankees Fans Brawl in the Stands

    Yankees Fans Brawl in the Stands

    The Yankees were taking on the Rays in New York when some young and possibly over-served fans probably ran their mouths just a bit too much. What happened next? “Dis goin’ on You Tube!” Let us now recreate how it all went down. Punks probably were spewing vile, hate speech and many profanities. Older gentlemen […]

  • Picture Of The Day – Who Are You Cheering For?

    Picture Of The Day – Who Are You Cheering For?

    Let’s do a little analysis of this photo to try and figure out who this woman is.  The positives are this lady is comfortable enough to wear a hat, head to a baseball game, and drink a nice cold brew — awesome.  She also appears to have a small star tattooed on her wrist, which […]

  • Yankees The Latest Victims Of The SI Jinx

    Yankees The Latest Victims Of The SI Jinx

    The Philadelphia Phillies’ Roy Halladay was lucky enough to have his Sports Illustrated jinx last for only one spring training game.  The New York Yankees have not been so fortunate.  And to make matters worse, the May 3, 2010 issue of the popular sports magazine featured not one, but four of the Bronx Bombers’ top […]

  • Yankees Turn First Triple Play Since 1968

    Yankees Turn First Triple Play Since 1968

    The Yankees have done a lot of things since 1968, which includes seven World Series titles, 11 American League pennants, and 16 East Division titles, but they have failed to turn a triple play over the past 42 years.  Yesterday afternoon they put an end to that drought, completing one of baseball’s most difficult plays […]

  • Chan Ho Park: ‘I Had A Lot Of Diarrhea’ (Video)

    Chan Ho Park: ‘I Had A Lot Of Diarrhea’ (Video)

    How do you explain allowing three earned runs against, including a home run, over the course of 0.2 innings?  That can be a tough hole to dig yourself out of when it comes to the always critical New York media, but it appears as though Yankees pitcher Chan Ho Park has just the answer… “I […]

  • Yankee Symbol Lights Up Prudential Building in Boston…WTF?

    Yankee Symbol Lights Up Prudential Building in Boston…WTF?

    Yes, that is the New York Yankees’ symbol lighting up that large building.  So what makes that so strange?  How about the fact that the building in question is the Prudential tower located in Boston, Massachusetts.  A creative prank indeed, but I doubt there were many Red Sox fans laughing at this sight. It appears […]

  • 5-Year-Old Opens Red Sox Season With ‘Miracle On Ice’ Speech

    5-Year-Old Opens Red Sox Season With ‘Miracle On Ice’ Speech

    Last season couldn’t have been more disappointing for the Boston Red Sox.  Not only did they fail to win a single game in the post season, but they would also have to sit and watch as their arch rivals, the New York Yankees, went on to win their first World Series in nine years. It […]
