Alex Ties Gehrig In Slams, Yankees Break Tie In Standings

I have to admit that, when Alex Rodriguez was up with the bases loaded in the 8th inning last night, I expected him to strike out, or otherwise do nothing to get the run(s) in. You can't blame me for this. Everyone knows how badly the Yankees perform with the bases loaded.While I watched his at-bat, the stat popped up on the screen for what seemed like the 100th time: "Alex...

I’m Pretty Sure This Kid Is Pounding A Beer At The Atlanta Braves Game

The New York Yankees are visiting the Atlanta Braves tonight on ESPN and in the Top of the 4th as Alex Rodriguez was returning to the dugout after striking out to Tim Hudson there was a young looking man/kid in a blue shirt drinking what I believe to be a beer out of a plastic cup. The drink seems to be light-brownish (like a beer) and last I remember they don’t serve apple juice...

ARod: 23 Grand Slams = 23 Home Runs

A lot is made of the grand slam. It’s one of the more exciting plays in an otherwise mostly staid game. It’s the most runs you can score with one swing of the bat. And now Alex Rodriguez has more of them than almost anyone ever with the exception of Lou Gehrig, whom ARod tied [...]

Kid who caught homer meets A-Rod

Here's the YES call of A-Rod's HR to tie Lou Gehrig

Alex Rodriguez hit his 23rd career grand slam against the Braves last night, tying Lou Gehrig for the most all-time. 15-year-old Yankee fan Randy Kearns caught the grand slam in his cap and later... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~

A-Rod’s Grandest Slams

Last night in Atlanta, Alex Rodriguez hit the 23rd grand slam of his career, typing Lou Gehrig. Even if Nick Swisher‘s two-run homer later the same inning put the Yankees on top for good and was the bigger play according to Win Probability Added (WPA), tying up the game on one swing with his team down four runs is a pretty nice feat for A-Rod, the man who still bears the stigma...
