Found April 06, 2013 on The Other Paper:
Fans calling a toll-free phone number once used by the New York Yankees ticket office expecting to score some seats over their cell phones might be in for a real shock. Instead of getting Derek Jeter or CC Sabathia in a pre-recorded greeting, fans will be enticed by a woman's voice prompting them to a sex chat line. A Google search for "Yankees box office phone number" will lead the caller to an old Yankee.com Web page with 800--913-9793 — now a sex line. "Welcome to America's hottest talk line," a woman's perky voice says instructing you to pick your preferences. "Ladies, to talk to interesting and exciting guys free, press 1 now. Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you. Press 2 to connect free now." By pressing a number you'll find out you must be 18 before being prompted to enter a five-digit membership number. The Yankees say the mix up is beyond their control. "It's not a Yankee issue. It's an idiosyncratic thing with Google," said team spokesperson McGillion. She said callers used the "temporary" 800 number for seat relocations in 2008 and 2009 and the team has no control over a phone number that is not used anymore. This gives being a Yank fan a whole new meaning. And no that wasn't A-Rod picking up on line 2.

Game 2013.6: Yankees at Tigers

When I first took a look at the schedule, I thought that the Tigers should be able to take each of the first 2 series, and get out of the gate 4-2. After a disappointing games 2 and 3, the Tigers can get to 4-2 with a sweep today, which would be the first regular season sweep of the Yankees since ’08, and first in Detroit since 2000. The Tigers face Yankees ace CC Sabathia. In...

The odd, the hurt & the older

photo credit: bleacherreport.com The analysts, experts, baseball fans, and maybe science itself don’t think the Yankees will be good this year. With the massacre of injuries and both an April starting lineup and starting rotation, with an average age of about only 33 years old (you’d think it would be higher, I know) and a couple of old guys, one would say the 27-time-Champion...

Yankees' First Week: Unexpected Offense, Disappointing Pitching & Defense
