PLAYERS: Phil Hughes
TEAMS: New York Yankees
I am now speaking in secret IT IS HIGH code: We are 4-0 since Juju Intervention. The fish are biting. The Kuroda flies at midnight. "Breaking News Hughes" still Mr. Dice K Roll, a Sandy, either Koufax or Dennis. Four wins, four seasons. Real or Memorex? Setting up for Cy Young or Colter Beaning? Should Cash shop, before Correction? Is Phranchise real? On that note, let's welcome Eric Holder and our good friends from the National Security Administration. See that pen on your desk? It's a camera. Right now, you're being watched by Joe Biden, who has a drinking game going: he does a shot of Crown Royal every time you scratch your nose.  In times of despair, I think nobody reads this blog. Now, I know the NSA is with me! Hopefully, they're convinced - correctly, by the way - that this blog is a secret terror network code thing, and you - yes, you - are my sleeper cell robots, awaiting my signal to wreak havoc. We use code words... such as Joba and Juju... and w...

New York Yankees’ Ian Clarkin: When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong

I hate the L.A. Angels. There, I said it. Every single baseball fan has a team they will bleed for, and a team they wouldn’t  mind seeing be destroyed. I`m an Oakland Athletics fan, and I hope that every single Angels player contracts a severe case of tonsillitis that gets infected and is incurable. Obviously, I am not being serious nor am I sincere about such a wish. I am joking...

Yankees 6, Mariners 1

Thanks to Phil Hughes, the New York Yankees could get away with only one inning of offense. What an inning it was. Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer and Mark Teixeira followed with a solo shot as part of New York's six-run third inning Thursday night, and Hughes took a shutout into the eighth for the Yankees in a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners. Cano and Teixeira were...

Yankees game 60 lineup: 6/6/13

The Yankees head out West for an 11-day, 10-game road trip beginning with the Seattle Mariners. Ichiro returns to Seattle where he played for 12 seasons, winning gold gloves and setting all-time records along the way. Phil Hughes gets the ball looking to find his groove again. Hughes has been “Jekyll and Hyde” this year, turning in a good start, bad start, good start. Last time...

Yankees game 62 lineup: 6/8/13

  The Yankees will try to start another winning streak after seeing their four-game streak snapped last night. Andy Pettitte will take the mound in his second start after coming off of the disabled list. Robinson Cano went hitless last night, and has struggled mightily in his last handful of games. He will try to get things going against the Mariners’ Joe Saunders. Check out...

Obviously, it's not too soon to start pondering John's HR call for Eric Jagielo and Aaron Judge

The Yankees last night picked two college sluggers with their first picks.The reality is this: By the time either reaches the Show - if either does - the odds are pretty good that John Sterling will no longer be the Voice of the Yankees, driven by Jeep. He's on one-year contracts, and it seems every winter, the brass ponders an offer from ESPN. One of these years, well... But...

Yanks' pick 'could not stand' team growing up

The New York Yankees selected Ian Clarkin, a left-handed pitcher out of San Diego, with the 33rd overall pick in Thursday's MLB draft. Clarkin had a 0.95 ERA and struck out 133 batters in 73-1/3 innings this year -- and he is thought to have top-of-the-rotation stuff, particularly a devastating curveball that has drawn comparisons to Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. So it's...

Tweet of the Day: Alex Rodriguez ripped by Donald Trump

His latest Twitter rant is good for a nice chuckle. Please click here to read this story. The post Tweet of the Day: Alex Rodriguez ripped by Donald Trump appeared first on Players View.

Yankees Game 61: Four-run fourth too much in loss

Kuroda’s four-run fourth inning was enough for the loss tonight. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images) New York Yankees 1 — Seattle Mariners 4   Kuroda’s struggle to finish the fourth is big in tonight’s 4-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners. For the Mariners, Jeremy Bonderman would make his second start of the season. A leadoff double by Brett Gardner and a walk of Robinson...

Yanks' 1st-rounder sorry for pre-draft video crack

A high school pitcher taken by the New York Yankees in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft is apologizing for comments that barbed the team. Ian Clarkin was picked Thursday night. Right after being chosen, MLB Network showed a video in which the 18-year-old from California said he ''cannot stand'' the Yankees. On a conference call Friday, Clarkin...

Alex Rodriguez Hires The Same Lawyer That Got Ryan Braun Off

  In a move that totally doesn’t make Arod look guilty, it’s been reported that he’s hired the same attorney who helped overturn Ryan Braun’s drug suspension.

The news was reported anonymously by someone with inside knowledge of the hiring, no public announcement...

Internal messages: Yankees charging media to use pictures

These emails were sent from the New York Yankees Media Relations Department to members of the media covering Yankees games at events at Yankee Stadium. The NY Yankees charged (and possibly still charge) the media $40-$50 for parking at some events they cover. Yes, charging the media to park when they cover, come and provide free publicity for the Yankees. Hold on, it gets even better...

Report: Anthony Bosch Snitched To MLB After A-Rod Refused To Pay Him
