It is with a hesitant heart that I post this into the boiling id of the Yankiverse.I don't want to be the jinx. But, hell, this is like that cool girl you dated in 10th grade, the one who moved away without saying goodbye. One day, she's a goddess, she's everything. Then she busts her foot trying to score on a single, she puts on 30 pounds, and her folks sell her to the Nats, and she's gone, and you don't even cop a sympathy feel from her best friend, Iana Kennedy.Chien-Ming Wang - the last great pitcher developed by the Yankee high school - is back in the educational system, working on his G.E.D. and - damn - it's as if your old flame just friended you on Facebook, and she's living in Scranton, she's lost weight, her photograph is pretty hot, she's throwing strikes, and she says she was never happier than back in 10th grade, when you used to take her bowling. (Admit it, you thought she was going to say she has a 20-year-old son named "Duque,...

In March, when the Retrieval Empire cashed in its Raleigh Coupons and signed Lyle Overbay, the wheels in every blogsmith's mind began to rotate. We said to ourselves, "Let the hilarity ensue!"Lyle O-for-three... Lyle Overmatched... Lyle NoCanPlay... You don't get enough names like that. (We never imagined Chien-Ming Wang was on the way.) The best part was that...

Yankees: Champions are winners not survivors

Old? MAYDAY…survivors or MAY DAY winners? The oldest; the average age is 31.9 years. Injured? A DL (disabled list) that reads like an All-Star roster – Jeter, A-Rod, Grandy, Tex, Youks, Cervelli, Nova, and Pineda. Expectations? Exceeding. This team was projected to fall down, not rise up. So far the New York Yankees are not the big disappointments everyone, myself included...

New York Yankees Trade For Chris Nelson

The New York Yankees made a minor move, acquiring infielder Chris Nelson from the Colorado Rockies who had recently been designated for assignment. Colorado will receive either cash or a player to be named later. He is most likely a stop-gap for Kevin Youkilis who just went on the disabled list.

Yankeeography Focusing on Michael was Long Overdue

YES Network finally got around to putting together and airing a “Yankeeography’’ featuring Gene Michael. Perhaps I’m a bit prejudiced about the production, but I think it is one of the best this outstanding series has aired. “Oh, I was lucky with a lot of those trades that went down,’’ said Michael, 74, who has been the Yankees’ “Super Scout,’’ officially Senior...
