ADD DESTROYING CRIMINAL EVIDENCE TO A-ROD’S RAP LIST? On Friday afternoon, Michael Schmidt of the New York Times broke the story and identified Alex Rodriguez as the player who allegedly purchased documents from a former employee of Biogenesis of America in an attempt to destroy evidence linking him to the anti-aging clinic’s distribution of performance-enhancing drugs. When the Miami New Times broke the story in January, I remember saying “this is the White Whale. This is the one that will blow the lid completely off the entire steroid and PED scandal.” Since that day more than a dozen players have been implicated and tied to Biogensis including Rodriguez, Melky Cabrera, Gio Gonzalez, Bartolo Colon, Nelson Cruz and Yasmani Grandal and 2012 MVP Ryan Braun. While they all continue denying everything and scrambling for and convenient excuse they can find, the plot keeps thickening and the sordid details are piling up by the hundreds.

On This Day in History | 1929

1929 Yankees (Photo courtesy of Baseball-Fever.com) On this day 84 years ago the Yankees became the first team to make numbers a permanent part of their uniform. Previously numbers had been used intermittently, even appearing on the uniform sleeve at times, but in ’29 they would remain. Other teams quickly followed suit and by 1932 uniform numbers were standard across the league...

New York Yankees Veterans Stepping Up For Injured Players

The New York Yankees have been surviving so far.  They are 6-5 on the season and there is a positive vibe.  There was a negative tone all through the winter and into spring training, especially after Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira went down with injuries.  Derek Jeter also was set back and is still injured.  There were no real expectations from outside sources for the first...

McCarthy starts in series opener vs. Yankees

The Diamondbacks will make their first visit to new Yankee Stadium after the site shift in 2009. The trip always conjures memories of the 2001 World Series, although Yankee pitchers Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte and former D-back and current Yankees first baseman Lyle Overbay are the only players from either team still active. At 8-4, the D-backs are off to their best start...

Yankees honor Boston by playing ‘Sweet Caroline’ (Video)

The New York Yankees more than put aside their rivalry with the Boston Red Sox to support the city in the wake of Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings. A banner hanging in front of Yankee Stadium displayed a message that said, “United We Stand,” in between logos of the Red Sox and Yankees. The Yankees also played “Sweet Caroline” after the third inning of Tuesday’s 4-2 win...
