Found December 06, 2013 on Holdout Sports:
NBC4 Detroit inexplicably displayed a picture of embattled New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez next to the caption "Remembering Nelson Mandela" during Thursday's coverage of the passing of the South African icon. How exactly does this happen? And what possible connection could someone have made between A-Rod and Nelson Mandela to even remotely connect the two together?Granted that A-Rod's picture was only displayed for a matter of seconds, but that's all it takes for the Internet to immortalize that media goof forever.H/T NIS.

When All Ells Fails, Yanks Spend Money

You take a guy fresh off a boat -- let's call him Sailor -- and Sailor's boat left a country that didn't have baseball. After explaining what baseball is, you tell Sailor that one baseball team, the Yankees, throws dollars at free agents. After a lengthy explanation that dollars are our currency and why presidents are on low denominations and a non-president is on the...

With Ellsbury & McCann On Board, What’s Next?

Chase Headley Could Replace A-Rod New York Yankees fans have to be feeling pretty good less than 48 hours after experiencing a day of news reports that reported free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran in Kansas City meeting with the Royals, and then the bombshell that the Seattle Mariners became the front-runner to swipe away second baseman Robinson Cano. The Yankees got the last...

Three Years Won’t Be Enough To Get Granderson

The New York Mets are serious about signing Curtis Granderson. But, will the three-year contract that has been |reported be enough? At 32, Granderson would likely want a fourth year considering what is going on in the market. If Carlos Beltran, who is four years older than Granderson is reportedly talking with Kansas City for a three-year, $48-million contract, it stands to reason...

Mariners Rumors: Seattle willing to offer Robinson Cano 10-years, $230-240 million

The New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners are the favorites to land second baseman Robinson Cano. The Yankees have reportedly offered Cano a seven-year, $160 million deal, but the Mariners appear to be willing to blow that offer out of the water.The Mariners emerged as serious bidders in the Robinson Cano sweepstakes earlier this week, as I wrote here. They told Cano during a meeting...

The Ellsbury Deal Helps Scott Boras Gets Even With Jay-Z

“Scott Boras, you over baby. Robinson Cano, you coming with me,” is one of the lyrics in Jay-Z’s song “Crown” off the “Magna Carta Holy Grail” album. Some were puzzled when HOVA dissed Scott Boras earlier this year. I get it. Jay took one of Scott’s best clients. Yet why would a mogul like Jay-Z need to start a fight with a 61 year old man? Now I know that Mr. Carter...

  Breaking news from the Bronx, in a day of highs and mostly lows for the Yankees who were outbid for their prized second baseman Robinson Cano.

Tit for Tat: Should Sox Go For Granderson?

Of course, the Red Sox shouldn't sign a player out of revenge. That's something the Yankees would do, right? But isn't it a little interesting how New York's signing of two major contracts with Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury opens things up for the Red Sox to in turn sign center fielder Curtis Granderson? It might be a long shot, but it's not out of the...

Robinson Cano Signs With Mariners For $240M

Well, maybe Jay-Z isn't as stupid as we initially thought. Multiple reports suggest that Robinson Cano has signed a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Seattle Mariners. This is a huge blow to The Evil Ones—who somehow thought signing Jacoby Ellsbury was more important than keeping their homegrown future Hall of Fame-calibre second baseman. This will, however, free up cash...

Carlos Beltran to sign with Yankees

Carlos Beltran wanted to sign with the New York Yankees the last two times he was a free agent, but the pinstripes weren’t interested. Looks like the third time was the charm.

The Granderson Game

I'm not here to break any news. But I would like to make a couple of points regarding Curtis Granderson ... at the risk of having this mean absolutely nothing when the Red Sox come in and sign him at the last minute (which is certainly possible, as that's how they've done business with the likes of Vladimir Guerrero and such). Curtis Granderson sure feels like Plan...
