Found July 22, 2013 on The Daily Stache:
With Yankee SS Derek Jeter and 3B Alex Rodriguez dealing with quad injuries, the Mets wanted to make sure their players and fans had their muscles nice and loose. @Mets: Don't forget to stretch those quads before coming out to CitiField! Game starts at 7:10… See you there! pic.twitter.com/YpZCdWan8A — New York Mets (@Mets) July 22, 2013 I love this. Kudos to the person who thought of this and decided to tweet it out. The L.A. Kings have made the idea of professional teams on twitter being “snarky” the cool thing to do the past 18 months or so. The Mets decided to have a little fun at their crosstown rivals. No big deal, I think. Remember what the Yankees did earlier this year before the subway series? The whole “Friends don’t let friends root for the Mets” sign they tweeted. Considering the fact the Mets swept them this year, I feel like it is more than fine to continue to mock the Yankees at any chance they get. The post @Mets Takes Subtle Jab at A-Rod & Jeter appeared first on The Daily Stache.

Are Yankees headed towards rebuilding?

After starting the second-half with a 5-2 loss to the Red Sox in the opener of their three-game, weekend series on Friday night, the New York Yankees ended their three-game skid with a 4-2 win in Boston on Saturday afternoon. Now 52-45 and in fourth place, six-games out of first, the Yankees continue to somehow keep pace with the pack and stay

Baseball’s problem: A-Rod is still the sports biggest story

Source: Streeter Lecka/Getty Images North America It has to say something about an athlete, or maybe more so a sport, that even when he is not playing he remains the story. Alex Rodriguez has not played a single major league game this season and yet he is in more headlines then anyone. Rodriguez made headlines with his conditioning program, his tweet that he was cleared, and the...

Alex Rodriguez could reportedly still face lifetime ban from baseball

It would be a shock at this point if New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez was not suspended for his alleged involvement with Tony Bosch’s Biogenesis clinic. The suspension is expected to come sometime within the next few weeks, but MLB fans are still wondering how strong of a statement Bud Selig is looking to [...]

A-Rod saga multi-layered, lawyered

If you had to bet which would you say Alex Rodriguez stands a better chance of doing? Returning to form as a healthy player for the New York Yankees or avoiding a monstrous suspension from baseball? On both fronts A-Rod appears to be trailing by five runs with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Really the only question now is how each of his games will end. Is Rodriguez 38...

Are these the last days of Alex Rodriguez?

Originally, this post was going to be kind of an open letter to MLB and Commissioner Bud Selig. It would have been something like, "Dear MLB, please quit dragging this process out and just suspend Alex Rodriguez. Enough with the leaks to the press about suspensions to come. Enough with A-Rod coming up with more injuries to extend his stay on the disabled list. Put us all...

Alex Rodriguez reportedly getting a second opinion on quad strain behind the Yankees’ back
