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. Real details and real documents that even MLB thems...

Cano goes deep for his fourth home run of the season.
Arizona Diamondbacks 2 — New York Yankees 4
Robinson Cano puts the Yankees ahead in tonight’s 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Robinson Cano, named after Jackie Robinson, a man honored throughout baseball, had the hit of the game tonight. On a 3-2 changeup, Robinson Cano hit an absolute bomb into the right field...
From Matt Ehalt: The New York Yankees have pushed back Andy Pettitte's next start a second time to Friday against the Blue Jays as he deals with back spasms.
Pettitte had been scheduled to pitch Saturday before having that start pushed back to either Tuesday or Wednesday, and the team is now giving the 40-year-old even more time to ensure he's healthy.

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...
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...
Hiroki Kuroda pitched a five-hitter for his fifth major league shutout and Brett Gardner hit his first home run off a left-handed pitcher since July 2010, leading the New York Yankees over the Baltimore Orioles 3-0 Sunday night.
Kuroda (2-1) struck out four and walked none, lifting the Yankees back over .500 at 6-5.
Kuroda's eighth inning ended with a snappy double play started...
On a day when Clay Buchholz took a no-hitter into the 8th inning against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Yankees #2 starter made his mark with a complete game shutout of the Baltimore Orioles. Hiroki Kuroda pitched his own gem with style--no walks in nine innings pitched, and had a combo of sliders, splitters, and sinkers that danced their way to the plate. I know for me, Kuroda'...
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...
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...
That’s hilarious T…
Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was spotted at an exclusive Manhattan poker club back in the day, which triggered a Major League Baseball probe. Now once again he has been linked with a federal gambling ring bust. Here’s the scoop via NY Daily, “A source said Tuesday that A-Rod did attend poker parties hosted by Bloom but stopped after a 2011 MLB investigation”...
It’s hard to top the ‘This is SportsCenter’ that was done by John Clayton, but this one by Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia and ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt and Steve Levy is almost as funny.
