Found October 17, 2013 on Lady At The Bat:
With both the ALCS and NLCS moving closer to their endings and the World Series on the horizon, what am I thinking about these days? The 2014 New York Yankees schedule, of course. If you click here you will be taken to the full schedule, highlights of which include:* Starting the season where things left off: against the Astros in Houston.* An April series against the Cubs in Chicago. What if...?* Another home-in-home series with the Mets in May.  Revenge?* Also in May, a series against the Pirates.  Pushovers no more.* Moving ahead to September, all division opponents, except for the Royals. Really?* The season ends at Fenway with a weekend series against the Red Sox. Meaningful or not?The Yankees will also see the Cardinals and Red in 2014.  That's good. They won't see the Braves or the Nationals. That's not good.Then again, no one knows. That's why they play the games.

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

The season started out great, but as the injuries...

Who New York Yankees Fans Should Root for in the Playoffs

Yankees fans aren’t exactly accustomed to watching other teams play in October. This is normally New York time. Playoff baseball without the Yankees is just . . . weird. It’s like those vegan gluten-free pizzas; just wrong. Doesn’t look right. Doesn’t taste right. Shouldn’t happen. However, as we all know, rooting for one team isn’t as simple as saying “Go Yankees...

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...

New book details A-Rod's alleged love for threesomes with call girls

A new book by “740″ author Michael Gross is set to dish on all the shinnanigans that took place at FIFTEEN Central Park West, where Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez rented a $30,000 per month apartment and had neighbors like Denzel Washington, Sting and Bob Costas. “House of Outrageous Fortune: Fifteen Central Park West, The World’s Most Powerful Address,” details ARod’s...

Carlos Beltran Wants to be a Yankee

The Yankees are a team that could use some bat power, and Carlos Beltran would reportedly be more than happy to lend his services. Let's make it happen Yankees!

Folks, it's early, but this might not be a Yankee century

Make no mistake: The Yankees won the last Millennium. Twenty six world championships. Ha. Next "closest" were the Cardinals and A's - and the word "closest" is a joke. They each won nine.But let's ask a fundamental baseball question: What have you done lately?Well, we've been contenders. In the 2000 century, here are the current standings:Cardinals...

New York Yankees icon Derek Jeter will have ‘a lot of strength’ in 2014

New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi predicts that Derek Jeter will aptly rebound in 2014. The 39-year-old Jeter underwent the knife in October 2012 to fix his fractured left ankle. Although expected to recover in four to five months, Jeter never fully healed from the procedure and played in only 17 games this season. Missing Hannah Davis’ banging partner, New York went 85-77 and...

​Are You the Voice of Yanks in Exile?

We started Yanks in Exile because as displaced New Yorkers, we missed having fellow Yankee fans all around us. The bottom line, no one in San Francisco, Boston, or Tampa is talking about the Yankees on the subway or while getting their cup of coffee in the morning. Which, let’s face it, kind of sucks. So, Yanks in Exile was born to connect Yankee fans locally...

Alex Rodriguez reportedly ‘got hookers all the time, usually two at a time’

There is very little that could be said about New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez that could surprise us a this point. Entertain us? Well, that’s a different story. And some recent rumors about A-Rod’s alleged escapades with prostitutes are entertainment at its finest. An upcoming book written by Michael Gross called “House of Outrageous […]

Contract Crowdsourcing 2013-14: Hiroki Kuroda

Free agency begins five days after the end of the World Series. As in other recent offseasons, FanGraphs is once again facilitating this offseason a contract-crowdsourcing project, the idea being to harness the wisdom of the crowds to the end of better understanding the 2013-14 free-agent market. Note that, this year, in addition to asking readers to estimate the years/dollars each...

Carlos Beltran to Yankees sounds like strong possibility

Can you imagine Carlos Beltran playing for the New York Yankees? You might have to get used to it, because it sure sounds like a possibility.

Mike Francesa makes good points

Jorge Posada, new Yankees hitting coach and catcher mentor. Andy Pettite, pitching coach. Joe Girardi, he's a pretty good manager with those 2 World Series rings. Unfortunately, most good hitters are terrible coaches. **Follow us on Twitter, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return HomeFollow us on Twitter. Subscribe or Return to Bob's Blitz.
