The New York Yankees are in the Mile High City for a three game against the Colorado Rockies; a place they haven’t visited since 2007. Coors Field (Photo credit: Kwong Yee Cheng) The Yankees left New York after losing a tough series to Oakland, and now head into an unfamiliar ballpark already puts the team at a disadvantage. Here are three potential issues that could arise for the Bronx Bombers in Denver. 1) Mother Nature. According to Weather Underground tonight’s forecast is low 60′s with a 30% chance of  thunderstorms. And things look to be even moister on Wednesday (60%) and Thursday (40%) nights, which means all three games are in jeopardy of being able to get played. 2) The Altitude. Adjusting to the mile-high altitude of Coors Field is something that could hinder the Yankees. As according to WebMD, more than 20% of people visiting the western mountains get altitude sickness.

Yankees: Unfortunately we haven’t bought anything thus far

Have you heard this one? Yankees Green… A man and his wife are walking down a busy city street when they see a giant billboard that reads: 16 Billion and counting…. “National Deficit?” asks the wife.

Cat Scrap Ends With A Drop Kick At New York Yankees Game

There is nothing better than baseball, beer and brawls only this one occurred in the stands at a New York Yankees game.

We are going to Colorado to play shorthanded

How does a $200 million team have no bench, whatsoever?The next three nights, we may have to see Mariano play SS.Our usual SS, Eduardo Nunez, is listed as day to day. He has a bad rib. That can be really tricky. If Eduardo can't play, it means Jason Nix takes the slot. And it means if he comes up in the late innings, we cannot pinch hit for him.  Even Francisco Cervelli - our...

Yankeetorial: A-Rod steps outside his pod and draws immediate fire from the watchdogs of socio-economic justice

However we feel about Alex Rodriguez, can we agree that yesterday, the man did something nice? He was the lone rehabbing player down in the Tampa clinic - the Yankee Hebrew Home at Riverside-South - to step outside the security fence and sign autographs for fans. He did this for about 30 minutes. It drew reporters the way a melted popsicle attracts ants. Naturally, the brotherhood...

Similarities between 2013 Yankees and 2009 Mets

The first thought readers will get after reading this headline is how I am knocking the Yankees. It could not be further from the truth. I am actually giving the team credit for its 18-12 start, something that did not seem possible given the amount of injuries the team has had to deal with. It all started with the Derek Jeter broken ankle in the 2012 postseason and continued with...
