AAA: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Ramon Ortiz turned in seven innings of one-run ball, but saw a great effort wasted as the Yankees couldn’t put anything together offensively. Ortiz allowed just five hits and struck out seven. Ronnier Mustelier was one of the few offensive threats, going 1-for-4 with an RBI. Kevin Russo and Chris Dickerson were [...]
This week was likely Chipper Jones‘ final trip to Yankee Stadium in his Hall of Fame career as he is set to retire at the end of the season. So the Yankees decided to honor their foe from the 1996 and 1999 World Series with third base from Yankee Stadium this week.
Derek Jeter, probably the only more popular player in the nation throughout Chipper’s career, and his former...
The Yankees had an off day yesterday and return to baseball today with a trip across the city for another for another weekend Subway Series against the Mets. The Yankees enter the series coming off of a two-game losing streak, their first since the end of May. They swept the Mets last time when they [...]
Mets News and Notes:
Frank Francisco tells Mike Puma in the Post about the Yankees: "I can't wait to strike out those chickens. I want to strike out the side against them. I've done it before." Francisco, pressed about the poultry reference, added: "I think I've said too much already."
Ronny Cedeño is expected to rejoin the Mets for Friday...
Last night the New York Mets extended their winning streak to four games with a 6-4 victory over the Yankees and quite frankly, it was awesome. I know it’s just one game, but the way it unfurled from start to finish had to leave Mets fans with a great feeling heading into the weekend. As I recapped the events that led to the win and the Mets ultimately picking up a game on...

Frank Francisco is not having a good season, but that's done nothing to deter the reliever's confidence. Francisco's Mets will take on the Yankees for three games beginning on Friday, and he had a simple message for his upcoming opponents. "I can't wait to face those chickens," Francisco told the New York Post. "I want to strike out the side against...
So Squawker Jon and I will be at Friday and Sunday's Subway Series games. Sunday, in particular, looks to be shaping up as a great matchup, what with R.A. Dickey facing CC Sabathia. And just in time for the Subway Series, a Met has said something dopey and ridiculous.I am not talking about closer Frank Francisco telling the New York Post that "I can’t wait to face those...
Chris Young pitched 6 innings giving up 3 runs on a home run.
The Mets lost to the Yankees today by a score of 4-3. Young pitched well for 6 innings before giving up a 3 run homer to Ibanez. Jon Rauch gave up a game winning homer to Eric Chavez.
The Mets runs came on a solo shot by Kirk, an RBI by Thole, and a base hit by Chris Young. Daniel Murphy took Soriano to the warning track...
Before this weekend’s Subway Series, Mets closer Frank Francisco notably called the Yankees a bunch of “chickens.” It was funny because it’s such a childlike insult. Everybody had a good laugh about it (see the New York Post’s take on it here), especially Francisco’s own teammates.
After the quote started getting attention, Mets reliever Tim Byrdak paid $8 for a chicken...

Shortly after Frank Francisco made waves in the baseball community for calling the New York Yankees "chickens," reliever Tim Byrdak sent a clubhouse attendant into Chinatown to buy one for the Mets to have as a joke. Now "Little Jerry Seinfeld," as Byrdak christened the unofficial mascot, has a new home at Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, N.Y., according to ESPN...
