Sure he retired last December, but, according to the New York Post, that isn't stopping the New York Yankees from offering Hideki Matsui a contract. I'll let you make all the Yankees jokes, but, honestly, the team inking the former slugger to a one-day deal so he can ceremoniously "retire" in pinstripes is actually pretty cool. The two-time All-Star, and...

The Yankees keep on winning…why?!

The New York Yankees should be locked in the cellar.  Buried with the old barrels of whiskey and the broken bottles of centuries old wine, the Yankees should be long forgotten.  For this season, at least.  But they're not.  They are hanging in there through the first month of the season.  Injuries to key players has yet to bog the team down.  They remain one of the main...
