Curveballs for Jobu took a brief, 33-month vacation to figure out the meaning of Stan Paulsen's life (results: inconclusive).Today's honorary bat boy is Wayne Twitchell.Yankees 9, Tigers 4. Sometimes it's fun to go against a guy making his major league debut. Facing Casey Crosby, the Yankees loaded the bases in the second on three walks, then Derek Jeter (pronounced 'Dehrik Jeeedih' by all women in upstate New Jersey) drew another walk to tie the game at 1-1. Curtis Granderson, who MTD famously/full of hot dogs (translation: hilariously) labeled "a platoon player" in a July 4, 2010 post:I really like Curtis Granderson the person. He writes a blog and he seems like a genuinely nice guy. Curtis Granderson the player is nothing more than a platoon player. He can't hit lefties a lick.ripped a grand slam off the left-handed Crosby, and the Yankees pulled ahead for good.Pirates 8, Brewers 2. With Friday's win, which spoiled Randy Ready Bobblehead...

Bombers Getting Bombed: A Look at the Yankees’ Inability to Keep Opponents in the Yard

Around this time last year, there was a patently absurd notion pervading coverage of the New York Yankees. Writers, bloggers and radio hosts were mostly in agreement: The Yankees were hitting all too many home runs.

Damn. Now I'm confused: After all this, I guess we SHOULDA traded Hughes and Joba for Santana

Another reason to tar and feather Cashman! If it hadn't been for him - refusing to trade Hughes and Joba for Johann Santana - we would be sitting on a no-hitter this morning. "Dammit, Brian Cashman, we’d be better off if you were never born!"Wait a minute. Something just happened. I'm no longer wet.. We didn’t get that grand slam last night, because Grandyman...
