<span style="font-family: "Times New Roman","serif"; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 115%;">Jason Giambi has not
been a New York Yankee since 2008 & ever since his last appearance; the
masses have only been saying one thing about him. Bust.
That could not be further from the truth. Did he live up to the contract that was
awarded to him based on his previous three seasons in Oakland beforehand? Definitely not. The Yankees thought that they were getting a
high average offensive threat that was going to hit close to 40 bombs a year.
<span style="font-family: "Times New Roman","serif"; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 115%;">That version of Giambi
was alive & well during the first year of his contract but that was the
only year we would see it. Having said
that, it doesn’t make the guy a bust by any stretch of the imagination when you
look at his offensive output for the rest of his Yankee c...

Do you think the New York Yankees are in trouble?
Well, the Yankees are off to a horrid start to the 2012 season, as they got out pitched, out hit and out managed by the Tampa Bay Rays who swept the Bombers right out of Tropicana Field this past weekend.
Even though it is the beginning of the season, I was embarrassed for the Yankees, as it...

The New York Yankees are seeking to avoid their first 0-3 start since 1998, although that season turned out just fine. The Tampa Bay Rays, meanwhile, have started with three wins just once in franchise history. The Rays have won five straight at home against the Yankees for the first time heading into Sunday's finale of this opening series. New York has gotten poor...
The NL West boasts some of the best arms in the game with Clayton Kershaw, Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Jhoulys Chacin.
Wait, Jhoulys Chacin?
The Colorado Rockies' hard-throwing righty who has 20 career wins, one fewer than Kershaw had in his Cy Young Award-winning season a year ago?
Yep, that one.
Don't chuckle, because Chacin could very well be the next big thing in...
HOUSTON- Nameplates are often last on the checklist in the frenzy of player transactions, thus while Justin Maxwell was sufficiently outfitted for his Astros debut and announced his arrival with a two-run, pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning on Monday night at Minute Maid Park, the space next to the No. 22 above his locker remained blank afterward.
That logistical hazard did...
The New York Yankees finally won their first game of the season,
using four hits by Derek Jeter and an effective pitching
performance by Ivan Nova to defeat the Baltimore Orioles 6-2 Monday
I recap some of the fun results from the first weekend of the regular season.
Hear my thoughts on the homegrown Mets, Mariano Rivera, the shift, John and Suzyn on the radio, and Bobby Valentine doing a show in New York.
Dan Levy of the Bleacher Report, and formerly the Sporting News and Washington Post, will join to give some of his first impressions of the new baseball season...
The New York Yankees (2-3) beat the Baltimore Orioles (3-2) 5-4 in 12 innings, tonight at Camdem Yards.
Freddy Garcia made his first start of the season and it was tough to watch. He went 4.2 innings, allowed 4 hits, 4 runs (1 HR), walked 3 and struck out 3 batters for 98 pitches.
The Bullpen pitched scoreless 7.1 innings pitched, allowed 2 hits, walked 2 and struck...
