Reading Between The Seams:
The New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles are in a knock down, drag out battle for American League Wild Card position, to the point that their managers even almost scuffled earlier this week. In a crucial 8th inning (in which the Orioles tied up the game at 5 by the time the dust settled), Yankees OF Alfonso Soriano robbed All-Star 3B Manny Machado of a home run. The rub? He came off the wall, shoulders down, acting as if he didn’t get it. The joke was on the Orioles crowd when he flipped it out of his glove and threw it back. Watch it unfold courtesy of MLB.com:
The Yankees won the game in the 9th, I know where the 6-5, one run victory came from.

Putting it into perspective, the newspaper notes that sum is about the equivalent of the entire Houston Astros' payroll for this season. The Yankees' 2013 payroll is estimated to be $236.2 million, well above the $178 million tax threshold.

Third headline?Derek Jeter is out for the rest of the season.What a year.I just hope that supermodel he's dating is worth it.She's obviously bad juju.
He has no friends, no future career, no public defenders. To the baseball world, he is a pariah, an untouchable, a sadistic monster who should be spat-upon, beaned and booed.Every time A-Rod gets a hit, a demon in Hell receives his wings.Say whatever you want about Alex Rodriguez. No one will defend him. But know this:The Yankees were dead as dishrags before he turned up in the...

Bobby Valentine made some incredibly idiotic comments on Wednesday about the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. In short, he felt it necessary to say that the New York Mets were more visible in the days after the tragedy and did more to help the community than the New York Yankees. Later in the […]
New York Yankees catcher Chris Stewart accomplished an amazing feat during a 6-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday night. No, not that kind of amazing. This was the kind of amazing that Stewart will want to forget. As in, striking out on a 1-1 pitch amazing. In the top of the second inning, […]
If you ever needed a reminder just how good Mariano Rivera is...consider this. Sunday night, before the New York Yankees square off against their hated rivals, the Boston Red Sox, the legendary closer's career will be celebrated during a pre-game ceremony. Rivera is in the home stretch of his final season, so it is actually fitting that, as he travels stadium to stadium...
Bobby Valentine was a loose cannon when he managed the New York Mets and not much has changed.
VALENTINE: Off base in comments.
Today, one that should be about reflection and remembrance of those lost their lives, do we really need Valentine to open old wounds and accentuate pettiness?
That’s exactly what Valentine while speaking on WFAN, the soon to be ex-flagship station of the...

His remarks led to this statement from New York Yankees president, Randy Levine:
Bobby Valentine should know better than to be pointing fingers on a day like today. Today is a day of...
