AROUND THE WEB
The PEDs (performance-enhancing drugs) scandal conveyed in the Miami New Times on January 29th is losing its creditability by the day.
Miami New Times
More specifically the accusations alluding to the use of multiple banned substances by New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez that he obtained though Anthony Bosch. Bosch ran a clinic that was a supposed source for professional athletes...
The Yankees played poorly in the postseason. The whole team, not just one individual. It is actually amazing that the team even beat the Orioles in the Division Series. But Alex Rodriguez became the face of the Yankees’ struggles. We all know the story; Raul Ibanez hit for Rodriguez and hit 2 home runs, one to tie, one to win. Then Eric Chavez played for Rodriguez in the last game...
GET THE DEAL DONE
Robinson Cano is entering the final year of his contract, so the Yankees reportedly have approached him about a long-term extension.
University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) alum and current New York Yankee centerfielder (he also spent some time with the Detroit Tigers) Curtis Granderson has pledged the funding for a new multi-million dollar baseball stadium on the campus of UIC. The facility will be home for Flames Baseball, but more importantly, is intended to serve area youth and the Chicago community. Partnerships...
While much of the attention around Curt Schilling’s recent ESPN interview is on what Schilling said about his Red Sox days, those weren’t the only comments the pitcher made about baseball’s performance-enhancing drug culture.
Schilling, who turned quite a few heads by talking about PEDs and the Red Sox this week, also had thoughts about the recent fall of Alex Rodriguez. The...
York Yankees’ Ace pitcher CC Sabathia expects to be completely healthy for Spring
Training and, more importantly for the Yankees, ready to pitch on Opening Day. In
October, Sabathia had arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow to remove a bone
spur. In November, Sabathia reported feeling well, and he has begun throwing from
approximately 110 feet, nearly twice the distance...
FISTS OF FURY
Mike Piazza said in his new book that he took karate lessons to prepare for fighting Roger Clemens. Here are some other funny excerpts.
To the surprise of very few, the New York Yankees head into spring training with the oldest average starting lineup in Major League Baseball. But I don't think anyone thought the gap between first and second place would have such a large discrepancy.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, the average age of the Yankees starting lineup they expect to field on Opening Day is 32...
On the list of people who hold grudges against Roger Clemens, former Mets catcher Mike Piazza has some pretty legitimate reasons to be near the top.
After being struck in the head by the Yankees pitcher back in 2000, Piazza finally decided to prepare a way to get even with Clemens. In his autobiography, Long Shot, Piazza details how he began taking karate lessons and mapping out...
There has been some debate in recent days about the fate of New York Yankee second basemen Robinson Cano. Cano, the best in baseball, will be a free agent at the end of this season and, if the Yankees will give it to him, is inline for a $200 million-plus extension. Cano plays a premiere postion excellently, he’s a middle of the order bat with a very high average and plus power...
Over the winter, the Yankees bolted from MLB's megadeal with the legalized scalper website called StubHub, advancing some bizarre, twisted, Moonian logic that empty seats at Yankee games came about because secondary market sellers weren't gouging enough money for tickets. I personally think the Yankees' rationale stemmed from something Charo once said on the Merv Griffin...
