Found October 29, 2012 on IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
Thank God we didn't have to play the Giants. It would have taken them two games to sweep us in four. We wouldn't have gotten a hit - not one - and the Giants would still be batting in game two. The lead would be something like 104 to 0, and Nick Swisher would be pitching for us. Girardi would still be keeping A-Rod on the bench - resting him for the critical moment - and our best hope would be the hurricane.How did they build such a team without spending $400 million on payroll? Because that's what it would take us. Keep in mind that Brian Sabean, the general manager who built the Giants, is a former Yankee administrator. He's the Brian that couldn't handle working for maniacal old King George. We kept the Brian that maniacal old King George preferred. Hmm. And holy crap! look who else is up there in their baseball operations: Dirt Tidrow is the vice president of player personnel. Along with Felipe Alou, a special assistant, and guess who is the director of playe...

Letter to the Editor: "Absolutely useless!"

Buffalo News (New York)October 21, 2012 Sunday Dear Editor:The Yankees have been eliminated and gone into hibernation. Unfortunately Cano, Rodriguez, Granderson and Swisher were already there long before they were swept by Detroit. Let's face it, without Ibanez's heroics, the Yankees wouldn't have gotten by Baltimore. Along with occasional contributions, Teixeira...

Cano hit .313 with 33 home runs and 94 RBIs this season and Granderson hit 43 homers and drove in 106 runs, but with a .232 average.

Fan takes ball to the face off Buster Posey homerun

Giants catcher Buster Posey had a two run home run down the left field line at Comerica Park during Game 4 of World Series.  This lucky fan was right in the line of the hit and unfortunately for his face, misjudged the path of the ball. I’m sure next time this guy will remember to bring his glove.

Letter to the Editor: They rolled over

The New York PostOctober 21, 2012 SundayDear EditorEveryone has an opinion on the Yankees' embarrassing ALCS showing. What cannot be debated is the entire team's carefree demeanor throughout the playoffs. This is about a group of men who showed no heart, no fight and no passion for the game. They rolled over and played dead, a huge smack in the face to every loyal Yankees...

Report: Alex Rodriguez Receives Call from Joe Girardi Discussing 2013 Plans, Potential Return to New York

The New York Yankees made two big signings on Monday, locking up sluggers Robinson Cano and Curtis Granderson through next season. While these two signings came as no surprise -- even though Cano and Granderson struggled mightily in the postseason -- the biggest news of the New York offseason may come from another aging star. Alex Rodriguez had a miserable postseason...

Yankees Exercise $30 Million Worth of Options on Two Players Who Went 7-for-70 in MLB Playoffs

The Yankees are known to spend a bit too much money on washed-up stars. They've also been talking about changing their ways and trying to stay under the luxury tax threshold moving forward. But they're willing to pay for established, premium in-house talent -- that is, if the talent produces. Oh, the irony that New York just exercised two player options that will cost...
