Yankees: Girardi, Phelps and Ibanez

English: Joe Girardi, manager of the New York Yankees. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) The New York Yankees went into to last night with a one-run lead over the Baltimore Orioles in the AL East.

Chone Figgins doesn't want to be a Mariner anymore

Apparently, Mariners utility player Chone Figgins doesn't want to be with the team anymore. He told John Hickey of SportsPressNW.com that "I can't take 2 more years of this." Well Chone, I'm sure the feeling is mutual from your employers. They've paid you $28 million over the last three seasons (which includes a $2 million signing bonus), and you've...

David Cone calls Ichiro’s bat a ‘chopstick’

David Cone may have some racial sensitivity classes in his future after a comment he made on Tuesday. The former Cy Young Award winner and current Yankees TV analyst for YES Network referred to outfielder Ichiro Suzuki’s bat as a “chopstick” on the telecast during the Yankees-Red Sox game. “Probably a ball, but Suzuki with the chopstick,” Cone said while watching a replay...

Mariners fire hitting coach Chris Chambliss

The Seattle Mariners will not retain hitting coach Chris Chambliss for 2013 after another season during which their offense was among the worst in baseball. The Mariners made the announcement on Thursday. The rest of Seattle's coaching staff will return next season. Chambliss was Seattle's hitting coach the past two seasons.

Yankees: Season of adversity

While the New York Yankees are on a three-day break before the ALDS this Sunday night at 8:30pm EST, I thought it was the perfect time to reminisce a little New York Yankees (Photo credit: Keith Allison) before the real season begins. So here it is…. Adversity is a state, condition, or instance of serious or continued difficulty or adverse fortune. And that has been the most...

Mariners hope improved offense coming in 2013

With a debate settled over whether the Seattle Mariners will move in their fences in 2013, the question now is whether that will make any difference for one of the worst offensive teams in baseball. There is no question the Mariners are an improving ballclub, as evidenced by their eight-win jump to 75 victories in 2012. Their pitching remains a strength, led by Felix Hernandez,...

WSOC-TV in Charlotte apologizes to Robinson Cano for false PED tweets

Robinson Cano can thank the players he grew up watching – Jose Canseco, Rafael Palmeiro, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds and the rest of the cheaters.  The suspicion of performance-enhancing drug use still burns rampant when players have big offensive years or careers – especially those that play positions that do not usually generate big power numbers.  Professional ESPN clown Skip...
