When it comes to gifts, sometimes it’s the thought that counts. The Tampa Bay Rays will definitely be heeding that motto after their effort to honor New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera totally flopped. The Rays presented the sand sculpture seen above to Rivera on Friday ahead of the three-game series between the teams, which […]

All season, Mariano Rivera has enjoyed his farewell tour.
But Friday night in Tampa Bay, the Rays honored the greatest closer of all time with a sculpture, just one more native to Florida.

I wondered a little why Mariano Rivera didn't just retire last season. I totally get why he didn't; no one wants to quite because you got hurt. After the kind of career that he has had--and the length of it--no one would have batted a eye had he said that he was going to go ahead and hang it up anyway.
But as this season progressed it became abundantly clear why Mo decided...
FOR PETE'S SAKE
All-time hit king Pete Rose thinks Ichiro is a fantastic ballplayer but argues the hits he tallied during his career in Japan shouldn't count towards his professional total.
A-Rod Grocery is changing its name.
The grocery store was changed from Pena Grocery to A-Rod Grocery thirteen years ago while the third baseman was still playing with the Seattle Mariners.
Rodriguez eventually came to join the Yankees and patrons at the store soon believed that Rodriguez may even had a owners stake in the place.
Instead the store is owned by 41-year...
Derek Jeter is the modern day Captain America. Everybody loves him and he can do no wrong. Recent reports have Jeter allegedly engaged to SI model Hannah Davis, possibly forming the last double play combination Jeter will ever know. If true this is shocking news. It is the acting worlds equivalent of George Clooney settling down with one lady or Hugh Hefner with just one bunny...
The New York Yankees are expected to activate shortstop Derek Jeter on Monday, MLB.com reports.
Jeter currently is on a minor-league rehab assignment as he recovers from a calf strain, which led to his third stint on the disabled list this season.
Jeter began the season on the DL after offseason ankle surgery, and he landed back on the DL after injuring his quad in his debut July...

New York Yankees 2 — Tampa Bay Rays 7
A rare bad start by Hiroki Kuroda in tonight’s 7-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
The Yankees got behind the speed of Brett Gardner for the offense tonight. He would start the game with a walk and would steal second base...
On Wednesday, New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki joined an elite club by notching his 4,000th career hit in professional baseball.It is certainly no small feat to record that many hits over a career even if about one-third of them were amassed while playing in Japan.In fact, Ichiro recorded 1,278 hits in Japan's top baseball league, with the other 2,722 coming while playing...
The latest entry in the long-running series in which Brian Cashman discusses the current state of the New York Yankees. With his headwarmer.
Cashman: I’ve been thinking a lot about Dempster hitting A-Rod.
Headwarmer: Thinking? That’s not like you, Bri.
Cashman: It just doesn’t make sense to me. A-Rod has been living in his own reviled bubble for so long. Why would the Sox want...
Andy Pettitte pitched six effective innings, Curtis Granderson homered, and the New York Yankees beat Toronto 5-3 on Thursday after a 3 1/2-hour rain delay for their 10th straight victory against the Blue Jays.

It is my fault.I thought I could sneak in a meaningless comment without impacting the Ju-Ju that was working for the Yankees, but I was wrong.Next time the Yankees go on a run, if I am still alive, I will simply remain silent.Now that I have awakened, however, I want to point out the obvious. This team, even with the band-aid squad back on scene, does not have the horses to win...
The Orioles have not had a very good series against the Tampa Bay Rays. They were defeated in the first two contests of a crucial three-game set; however, last night, the Orioles put a halt to the losing and defeated the Rays, 4-2.
Wednesday’s contest was notable for a few reasons:
The Matt Wieters’ throw to nail Kelly Johnson to end the game was amazing. The clutch...
