Sorry, world. The New York Yankees just won April Fools' Day 2013. The Yanks serenaded their hated rivals the Boston Red Sox with "The Imperial March" from The Empire Strikes Back as the Sox walked onto the field at Yankee Stadium. Perfect revenge for all those "Evil Empire" jokes throughout the years.
And the music the Yanks walked out to? The theme from Star Wars of course. Perfect, just perfect.

HIP TO IT
Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez told reporters that while he is still in "Stage 1" of his recovery from hip surgery, he is "devoting 100 percent" of his time to rehab.
As if things weren’t bad enough for the New York Yankees, now they have one of their veterans making some bold predictions.
The Bronx Bombers made a trip to West Point Saturday afternoon to close out a very long and stressful spring training, but it’s what long-time Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte said before the game that has baseball analysts scratching their heads.
How fitting it would be for the former Red Sox top prospect, who's chances were diminishing right before his eyes, to be thrown into the roster due to a teammate's injury. Projected starting SS Stephen Drew went down with a concussion and Jose Iglesias was suddenly relevant again. In the past he was seen as the future of Red Sox Nation, but after sub-par offensive production...
2013 is a big year for Jon Lester in more ways than one. Not only will Lester’s performance have a huge impact on the type of season the Red Sox have, but the left-hander is also pitching for his next contract.
Lester is in the last guaranteed year of the five-year, $30 million extension he signed prior to the 2009 season. The Sox hold a $13 million club option for 2014, but this...

Robinson Cano is switching agents from Scott Boras to a new company formed by musician Jay-Z's Roc Nation and CAA Sports.
Cano will be represented in baseball matters by CAA Sports' Brodie Van Wagenen. The New York Yankees second baseman is making $15 million this season and can become a free agent at the end of the World Series.
While the Yankees usually wait for contracts...
The big question, now that second baseman Robinson Cano has hired CAA and Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Sports as his new agents, is whether the switch means that the New York Yankees stand a better chance of signing him.
Brodie Van Wagenen, who will be Cano’s primary baseball agent for CAA, didn’t answer that question directly in an interview with FOXSports.com on Tuesday night...
New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano is changing agents as he nears the biggest decision of his career.
Cano, who can become a free agent at the end of the season, is hiring Creative Artists Agency to replace Scott Boras, according to major league sources.
CAA's baseball clients San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey and right-hander Matt Cain, Milwaukee Brewers...
You may have lost Hanley Ramirez, Brett Lawrie, or Derek Jeter for the start of the season. And, if you’re anything like me, you neglected to draft a back-up for that position. If you’re in that unenviable spot, check your waiver wire for guys like Alcides Escobar, Jean Segura, and Kevin Youkilis. If they don’t tickle your fancy, there’s a healthy player on the New York...
And the winner is Hov………again
Jay-Z has always said he isn’t a “businessman”, he’s a BUSINESS man. He is proven that by turning the skill of rapping, into a half a billion enterprise.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, Jay-Z has partnered with CAA (Creative Artists Agency) one of the most powerful agency in the world, so don’t expect another Master P situation....
Don't worry, this is not another article about whether or not the Red Sox should be patient with Jackie Bradley's service time (the answer to that question is obviously yes).
Listening to Felger and Mazz today I heard them once again complaining about how the length of baseball games, especially Red Sox games, are becoming too long. Apparently yesterday's game lasted...
It took Jon Lester five starts to notch his first win last season, so the left-hander is already a step ahead of the game.
Lester pitched five innings and earned the win in the Red Sox’ 8-2 victory over the Yankees on Monday. He threw 96 pitches (63 strikes), and allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven.
It was far from a dominant performance by Lester...
Late last week the New York Mets announced that former New York and Boston skipper Bobby Valentine would be doing some pre- and postgame analysis for cable channel SNY this season. However, that isn’t stopping Valentine from talking about his former market.
In an interview with the New York Post, Valentine appears to be following Carl Crawford‘s lead of blaming his struggles...
