(Breaking update: Yes Network hires Meredith Marakovits)
We’re a Midwest site, but occasionally we need to focus on stories with a more coastal theme. Here in Chicago, our media contingent lacks the obvious eye-candy tokenism you find so prominent on both coasts and in the national media.
But on the East Coast…meet hottie Meredith Marakovits
Here’s her bio from her Twitter account:
WFAN and SNY Anchor/Contributor, CSN Philly Sixers Sideline reporter, CSN New England fill-in anchor and Master of the NJ Turpike.
She covered the New York Yankees in 2010, and is working the sidelines for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Marakovits played volleyball at La Salle, where she graduated in 2005. Pictures via her Facebook Fan Page
Marakovits got a little more national pub lately on CSN Philly’s Eagles Post Game Live where she interviewed “Angry Greg Ryan” an ornery and funny self-deprecating Philadelphia Eagles fan
And here she is with Fabio

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said the team would consider bringing Brett Gardner back in a limited role once rosters expand in September.
"If there's a way that he can help us, we'll definitely use him, especially in the month of September, when you can expand rosters," Girardi said. "If there are certain things that he can't do and it...
Buffalo News (New York) July 29, 2012 Dear Editor,The Yankees have lost quite a few games that could have been won without a pitching change. It happened again Sunday in Oakland. It seems manager Joe Girardi often leaves pitchers in too long or takes them out too soon.Example: A relief pitcher or set-up man comes in and retires the side with no problems. He is removed after one...

Whoever said that AJ Burnett couldn’t pitch should be putting their foot back in their mouth, as he could very well win the NL CY Young this season.
I have always been a Burnett fan since his days with the Florida Marlins; so I was thrilled when the Yankees signed him in 2009 and went on to win the World Series that season.
Burnett had his...
When Felix Hernandez throws a 1-0, complete game, two-hit shut-out, that is about all you’ll hear about from that game.
However, if you look at who threw against Hernandez you’ll find that Hiroki Kuroda held his own against the former Cy Young winner. Kuroda went 6 and 1/3 scattering 7 hits while giving up only 1 run. Kuroda walked just one Mariner while striking out four demonstrating...
The New York Yankees aren't ruling out the possibility that injured outfielder Brett Gardner could make the roster for September in a limited capacity.
Manager Joe Girardi told MLB.com, "If there's a way that he can help us, we'll definitely use him, especially in the month of September, when you can expand rosters," Girardi said. "...
The Yankees looked pretty bad against the Tigers on Monday night, striking out 14 times and mustering no earned runs against Detroit's Justin Verlander. But don't give the reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner all of the credit in this one. The Yankees may have been a little distracted coming in. Derek Jeter seemed reticent to head to batting practice Monday. His...
We all know that fans will always do their best to become part of the action and one New York Yankees fan back on Friday night got to taste the playing field.New York's Curtis Granderson was at the plate and fouled a Kevin Millwood pitch down the line to where the fan was sitting.As he reached over to get it, he tumbled into the field of play and took a piece of the wall with him:

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson returned to New York last night in the Broadway debut of his one-man show “Undisputed Truth”, running through August 12 at the Longacre Theater.
The 46-year old Tyson, originally from the rough streets of Brooklyn, opened the show with a welcome and a comical promise.
“Welcome to my living room. You will all leave with two ears.”
