Baseball Hot Corner:
I hate the L.A. Angels. There, I said it. Every single baseball fan has a team they will bleed for, and a team they wouldn’t mind seeing be destroyed. I`m an Oakland Athletics fan, and I hope that every single Angels player contracts a severe case of tonsillitis that gets infected and is incurable. Obviously, I am not being serious nor am I sincere about such a wish. I am joking. Fortunately for me I will not be working for the L.A. Angels anytime soon. That can`t be said for the Yankees first round pick Ian Clarkin who decided to voice his dislike for the New York Yankees on a pre-draft interview, only to be drafted by the Yankees in the first round. You want to see how Clarkin handled it, here is a picture of draft day.
I even have an exclusive video of Clarkin`s wife, who handled it very poorly.
The interview that is being discussed is a MLB network interview that has poor Ian saying:
“I cannot stand the Yankees, so I was actually in tears I was so happy,”
Ian tried to cover...

The Yankees will try to start another winning streak after seeing their four-game streak snapped last night. Andy Pettitte will take the mound in his second start after coming off of the disabled list. Robinson Cano went hitless last night, and has struggled mightily in his last handful of games. He will try to get things going against the Mariners’ Joe Saunders. Check out...
The Yankees last night picked two college sluggers with their first picks.The reality is this: By the time either reaches the Show - if either does - the odds are pretty good that John Sterling will no longer be the Voice of the Yankees, driven by Jeep. He's on one-year contracts, and it seems every winter, the brass ponders an offer from ESPN. One of these years, well... But...
Brett Gardner went 3-for-5 on Saturday. He has now hit safely in 14 of his last 16 games since May 24, batting .328 (19-for-58) over that stretch. He also has scored at least one run in 16 of his last 23 starts, including six straight from May 24-29.
Notes on the game:
If the Mariners win tonight, it will be the first time since 2002 that they have won a series against the Yankees...

New York Yankees 1 — Seattle Mariners 4
Kuroda’s struggle to finish the fourth is big in tonight’s 4-1 loss to the Seattle Mariners.
For the Mariners, Jeremy Bonderman would make his second start of the season. A leadoff double by Brett Gardner and a walk of Robinson...
A high school pitcher taken by the New York Yankees in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft is apologizing for comments that barbed the team.
Ian Clarkin was picked Thursday night. Right after being chosen, MLB Network showed a video in which the 18-year-old from California said he ''cannot stand'' the Yankees.
On a conference call Friday, Clarkin...
In a move that totally doesn’t make Arod look guilty, it’s been reported that he’s hired the same attorney who helped overturn Ryan Braun’s drug suspension.
David Cornwell has joined Arod’s ’Justice League’ of high powered lawyers, along with Jay Reisinger. The news was reported anonymously by someone with inside knowledge of the hiring, no public announcement...
New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte allowed three hits over 7 1-3 innings to earn his 250th career victory, leading the Yankees to a 3-1 win over the Seattle Mariners and in doing so becomes the 47th pitcher in major league history to reach that win total.For Pettitte the day was special for more than just his pitching.Pettitte’s son Josh Pettitte, a right-hand...
These emails were sent from the New York Yankees Media Relations Department to members of the media covering Yankees games at events at Yankee Stadium. The NY Yankees charged (and possibly still charge) the media $40-$50 for parking at some events they cover.
Yes, charging the media to park when they cover, come and provide free publicity for the Yankees.
Hold on, it gets even better...
Chris Stewart had a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning and David Phelps matched efforts with Felix Hernandez for six innings to help the New York Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 on Sunday.
Ichiro Suzuki drew a walk from Yoervis Medina (1-2) to open the ninth. Jayson Nix sacrificed him to second. Then with two outs, Stewart bounced a grounder to through the left side...
The MLB First-Year Player Draft kicked off on Thursday and the Yankees did themselves some good by selecting three times in the 1st round, thanks to some compensations help for losing Nick Swisher and Rafael Soriano. Here are all three 1st round picks:
Pick #26: Eric Jagielo, 3rd baseman, Notre Dame.
Jagielo is a 6-foot-3, left handed third baseman coming out of Notre Dame. Below...
40 and Winning
Today, Andy Pettite had a day for the ages: he picked up his 250th career win on the same day that the team that has defined his career, the New York Yankees, drafted his son, Josh. By getting his team past the Mariners, Pettite raised his season record to 5-3, lowered his ERA to 3.82 and his WHIP to 1.26... which is to say, more or less his career levels. Now, it...
