Found October 23, 2013 on Lady Loves Pinstripes:
Losing the 2004 American League Championship Series.  Sign in NYC Subway Car. Kurt Schilling’s bloody sock game. Big Papi. Make the Yankees my Daddy. Carlton Fisk. Fenway Park on 4 Yawkey Way. These are just a few remembrances that will speedily make any true-blooded New York Yankees fan fume about why they hate the Boston Red Sox. And as a born and breed New Yorker and Yankees fan, I almost have no choice but to root for the Cardinals this World Series. But as a baseball fan, I am happy for the city of Boston after enduring three years with no postseason baseball. No doubt the Red Sox deserve to be playing in this championship and think this is going to be an awesome World Series to watch. Still, I am about to have my nails painted in Cardinals Red so do not think I have gone soft or anything. So how is the rest of Yankee Universe feeling about the 2013 Fall Classic? Well, here are some tweets to answer that question.  (more…) © Kate for Lady Loves Pinstripes, 2013. | Permalink ...

Yankees Scouting Korean Reliever Oh Seung-Hwan

There’s been a lot of talk recently about how the New York Yankees are scouting pitchers internationally. But seemingly all that talk has been about Masahiro Tanaka, the superstar fireballer from Japan who went 20-0 last year with a 1.24 ERA and 0.93 WHIP. But, as exciting as Tanaka is (we think the Yankees need to get him), all that talk is overshadowing the other international...

Yankees Fire Strength and Conditioning Coach Dana Cavalea

The Yankees suffered multiple setbacks due to a staggering amount of injuries to key players this season, so it may not be surprising that the team has fired strength and conditioning coach Dana Cavalea as a result.

What Exactly Is Going On With Clay Buchholz?

(FenwayNation Photo)To paraphrase Winston Churchill, "Clay Buchholz has become a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma." After being on an early-season trajectory for the Cy Young Award, he missed three months with a poorly-defined neck/shoulder injury. His return from that injury has been uneven, and now we learn that he still has some "issues" with the...

Mayor to fans: Be responsible as Red Sox chase 'World Series Cup’

Good news for those of you who love going to New York Yankees games (is there anyone who doesn’t love going to New York Yankees games? We don’t want to meet that weird person).

Report: Clay Buchholz Dealing With ‘Physical Issues,’ But Red Sox ‘Fully Expect’ Pitcher to Make Next Start

John Farrell‘s decision to start John Lackey in Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday was made primarily due to Lackey’s success pitching at home this season. But the call did lead some to question whether Clay Buchholz, who pitched Game 2 of the ALCS, is fully healthy. Buchholz is dealing with some “physical issues,”’s Rob Bradford reported early Wednesday, citing...
