Pinstripe Problems: How Will New York Yankees Get Back To The Playoffs

No matter how you try to spin things off, the 2013 season was a big disappointment for the New York Yankees, and everyone in the organization will agree with that. The Yankees missed the playoffs for the second time since 2008, and now they head into the offseason with a lot of questions to answer, and a lot of positions to get straight. The season started out great, but as the injuries...

It’s been a long, long time since a Yankees writer had to talk about...

MLB's COO and NY Politicians Trade Verbal Jabs over A-Rod and Discrimination

Man, everyone’s fighting in New York these days. A few days ago it was lawyers for Alex Rodriguez and Anthony Bosch getting into it, and now it’s MLB and . . .New York politicians. Yep, you read that sentence correctly. In recent weeks, groups in New York have taken great offense to MLB suspending Rodriquez for 211 games, when the rest of the players on the Biogenesis...

Yankees to Retain Pitching Coach Larry Rothschild

There will be a lot about the 2014 New York Yankees that’s different than the 2013 New York Yankees. There will be a decent amount of roster turnover, most notably to the starting rotation. But the position of pitching coach will not be one of the offseason changes; it looks like Larry Rothschild is coming back! Like all of Joe Girardi’s six assistant coaches, Rothschild’s...

A-Rod supporters seek donations to fight 'injustice' of 211-game ban

Alex Rodriguez may have the means for a top-flight legal team, but the A-Rod supporters — who have taken over the sidewalk outside Major League Baseball’s offices since the slugger’s appeal began on Sept. 30 — are grounded and looking for financial support as it protests the Yankee third baseman’s historic 211-game doping ban. Hispanics Across America (HAA) has created...

Talking Cardinals NLCS on CBS Sports Radio 920 in St. Louis

Early Wednesday afternoon, with the St. Louis Cardinals on the cusp of returning to the World Series, I was delighted to join co-hosts Rene Knott and Joe Roderick (sitting in for Charlie Marlow) on their daily show, Middle Relief, on CBS Sports Radio 920 in St. Louis.

What Does The Future Hold – Cardinals Contracts and Futures

As the St. Louis Cardinals face the final weekend of the National League Championship Series, and the baseball year as a whole rolls into its final go around shortly, the show still goes on, regardless of outcome.

St. Louis Cardinals on brink of creating special memories for new fans

The St. Louis Cardinals have had an incredible amount of success the past three seasons, including a World Series championship and two trips to the National League Championship Series, but they still have a chance to create new, lifelong memories for another set of Cardinals fans with a win Friday or Saturday. The World Series is the pinnacle of the sport. It is every team’s goal...

Yankees’ Derek Jeter: ‘No one foresees any other issues’ with injuries

Major League Baseball fans know all about the horrendous injury-plagued 2013 season that haunted the New York Yankees beginning in October of 2012. Remember? That is when shortstop and team captain Derek Jeter broke his ankle in Game 1 of the American League Championship Series. From that point on, it seemed that most every key player who could possibly suffer an injury did. Jeter...

The Yankees' pitching staff will look markedly different next season but the man working with them on a daily basis will be the same. The Daily News has learned that pitching coach Larry Rothschild and the Yankees are close to announcing a new deal one which will bring the 59-year-old back to the Bronx where he's spent the past three seasons on Joe Girardi's staff. A...

On this day in history | 2003

10 years ago today, Aaron Boone entered himself into Yankees and baseball lore. His eleventh inning walk-off home run gave New York their 39th American League pennant, and it gave the Red Sox and their fans more heartache. Boone’s home run was the culmination of a classic series between two of the biggest rivals in sports. Usually, game sevens never live up to the hype – but...

WATCH: Dodgers, Cardinals have weird standoff after anthem

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you probably haven’t seen this one.  As the National League Championship Series has been chippy at times, mainly due to Los Angeles Dodgers celebrations after crucial hits, before Game 6 on Friday Night, two reserves seemed to make light of the rivalry.  Egged on by their teammates, the Dodgers reserve OF Scott Van Slyke and St. Louis...

The Cardinals, The Dodgers, And Depth

Team depth can be defined many different ways: the quality of your fifth starter, the quality of your bench, the contributions from your non-stars. And, looking at the results of the games so far in the National League Championship Series, you might think the Cardinals had superior depth, given home runs by Adron Chambers and shutdown innings by Seth Maness. But if we look at the...
