Lady Loves Pinstripes:
After feasting on the Royals, and then sweeping an even weaker ball club in Oakland over this Memorial Day weekend, the New York Yankees
headed to Anaheim to face the Angels with a five game winning streak.
Well, the Yankees fought for eight innings but unfortunately there are nine innings in a baseball game.
The game was tied 8-8 heading into the ninth and the Yankees had the opportunity to win this game but as usual the Bombers loaded up the bases and couldn’t gather up enough to drive in a run.
Unfortunately for the Yankees, Halos prospect Mike Trumbo does not suffer from the same angst as he demolished a ball into left field to win the game.
A lot of fans emailed me wondering why Girardi brought in Corey Wade to pitch in the ninth inning instead of Rafael Soriano?
First, it was not a close situation, which shouldn’t factor into a tied game like this one because Soriano was good to go and the Yankees fought hard to stay in it.
Still, sending Wade in was a solid call by Gira...

“I watched a snail crawl along the edge of a straight razor. That’s my dream; that’s my nightmare. Crawling, slithering, along the edge of a straight razor… and surviving.” Seriously, that pic looks like a still straight out of the final scenes in Apocalypse Now. Derek Jeter looks positively Brando-esque. Okay, okay, actual caption: Derek [...]

Andruw Jones managed to get hit by his own foul ball yesterday in what can only be described as an odd play. Hell, the bat boy could tell you that. A mix between shock and fear on his face. Shock that the ball hit Andruw Jones and fear that Andruw Jones might eat him in

The fantasy baseball landscape at third base looks much different than it did at the end of last year. Only three players who ranked in the 2011 top 10 for third base according to ESPN’s Player Rater are currently in the top 10: Adrian Beltre (6), Jose Bautista (8) and Emilio Bonifacio (9). With fantasy elites Miguel Cabrera (currently ranked 3rd) and Hanley Ramirez (5th) gaining...
It's no wonder the New York Yankees have won more World Series tournaments than any other team in major league baseball: The Yankees have paid four of the 10 most expensive sports contracts of all time. Nine of the 10 most expensive sports contracts occurred in baseball. As any sports fan knows, how much discretionary income a team has in contracts can make a big difference when...
In an effort to get back in the win column, I am doubling up on my beloved Yankees:
Yankees +122 over Angels / Over 7.5
Bet $150 / $100
In yesterday’s contest, these two teams combined to score 17 runs on 25 hits. There is no reason to suggest they won’t do the same tonight, especially since they were forced to use a combined 11 pitchers, weakening both bullpens. Despite...
