Alex Rodriguez may have spent Opening Day in the Bronx, but just days later, he was back to other pursuits during his long rehab from hip surgery.
Rodriguez was spotted in the Dominican Republic last Saturday courting his new love interest, Rebeca Yunen Finke, Diario Libre reports. The 24-year-old is an honors graduate in business administration at Pontificia Universidad Catolica Madre y Maestra in the Santiago province of the Dominican Republic, according to the report.
Finke comes from a rather connected family.
“Her father is the well known businessman Alberto Yunen Zouain, and her mother is Pamen Finke, a distinguished lady for Puetro Plata,” Diario Libre reports. “Rebeca is the niece of Rafael Emilio Yunen, the director of the Centro Leon.”
Finke’s father reportedly picked up Rodriguez at the airport over the weekend and took him to the presidential suite of the Gran Almirante Hotel, where he was not registered under his own name.
Rodriguez and Finke met about six months ago, D...

New York Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova is the real deal.

At least that is what everybody initially thought of him.
When Nova hit the major league level back in 2010, he showed some promise. Pitching just 42 innings in total, he went 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA. It was a small sample size where he was brought up at random to fill-in as a reliever, and a...

Left-handed reliever Clay Rapada has signed with the New York Yankees on a minor league contract.
Rapada, 32, has been in the major leagues for six years, his last year spent with the Yankees. In 2012, Clay Rapada had a 3-0 record with a 2.82 ERA. He struck out 38 in 38.1 innings. In 2012, Rapada held...
The Yankees will look to make it three in a row tonight, as they will play the Indians in game two of a four game set. Andy Pettitte, who pitched eight innings of one-run ball in his first start against Boston, will toe the rubber for the Bombers. Carlos Carrasco, who missed all of last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery, will make his first start tonight for the Tribe. Here...
The New York Yankees won the first game in a four game set against the Cleveland Indians, 11-6.
This is the second win in row for the Yankees after beating up Tigers ace Justin Verlander on Sunday.
No doubt the Yankees look a lot better after going 1-4 to start the season, but are fans feeling better about the team now?
To get some answers I turned to twitter to check out what Yankee...

It was a cold, snowy Opening Day in the Bronx. The Yankees defeated the Kansas City Royals, 7-3. Starter Andy Pettitte allowed 3R in 6.1IP (6H, 2BB), earning the win. Newcomers Joe Girardi, replacing Mike Stanley, and Tino Martinez, replacing Don Mattingly, get booed during pregame introductions. Girardi goes 1-for-5 batting in the second spot and rookie shortstop Derek...
The scheduled game between the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians has been postponed by rain.
No makeup date was immediately announced. The teams are scheduled to finish their series with a single game Thursday night, but with a forecast for more showers it might be tough to get that one in. This is New York's only visit to Cleveland this season.
Zach McAllister is slated...
When the Retrieval Empire last winter inked Sergeant Youkilis to a one-year deal, a few writers dusted off the old punch line about him being the "Greek God of Walks." OK, fine. Unfortunately, in their quest to re-enact a Greek tragedy, the Yankees embody no god. Nope. We follow the blind poet, Homer.Yesterday, before Cleveland called in sick, the Yankees were tied for...
Early this week, with the Eve-Emps on the verge of elimination from the 2013 AL pennant race, we pondered orchestrating a worldwide juju relief mission of mercy - an intervention known by some as "charging the mound."Well, it worked. The Yankees are 3-1, baby, three-and-one, since we mentioned the - um - thing. We're not going to burst our britches on this, because...
Carlos Carrasco hasn’t pitched in a Major League game since 2011. After allowing a grand slam against the Royals, he threw at the head of Billy Bulter and was tossed and suspended for 5-games. However, he did not serve it … Continue reading →
