ARod Smarter Than Jeter?

Derek Jeter returns to the field; What will he be worth in 2014?

Derek Jeter can count the number of games he has played in a Yankees uniform this year on one hand. If the season ended today, he would have received almost a million dollars for each time he came up to bat in 2013.

A season of false starts?

The epitaph for 2013? Today, CC Sabathia pitches.  Used to be, sending CC out against Tampa was like setting loose a hungry lion in an arena of corn-fed Christians. Now, we cringe at the thought of Adam Warren pitching the fourth. Last night's Yankee game was a B-grade horror movie by Roger Corman. The arm fell off our best monster - Hiroki - but Girardi left him in, and left...

Ichiro is better than Pete Rose

Pete Rose is Major League Baseball's all-time hit leader. He likes to call himself the "Hit King." He is also a world-class jerk. He bet on games involving the team he was managing, and denied it for many years.
