Waiting For Next Year:
I personally wish Travis Hafner the best. I was obviously disappointed in how his Tribe career worked out, but I think he was too. I think he always wanted to do well for himself and for the team. With that, I wish him nothing but the best even as he now plays for the New York Yankees.
However “the best” are not words I’d use to describe John Sterling’s shticky homerun calls that he incessantly shoe-horns into broadcasts whenever a Yankee hits a home run. Hear how he called Travis Hafner’s first bomb as a member of the Yankees.
“Ha ha Hafner” was the best he could do? Ew. Thank goodness the Tribe has Tom Hamilton.

For the record, "Hunk-a-hunk-a Vernon love" would have been better.

Phil Hughes will make his first start of the season today, as the Yankees will take on the Tigers from Comerica Park in Detroit. Hughes was originally going to start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre today, but the Yankees need arms – David Phelps will become the long-man out of the pen. Manager Joe Girardi will go with the same lineup as yesterday, except Vernon Wells will start...

Lyle Overbay was a simple cut at the end of Red Sox’ spring training, an extra player as the team trimmed its ranks to 25 for Opening Day.
That’s how the Red Sox probably see it, at least, but for Overbay, who was scooped up by the Yankees to start at first base, it was a little more than that. Overbay, 36, is trying to prove that he still can play at a big league level, and...

MOOSIC, Pa. – The Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Rail Riders opened their new PNC Field on Thursday evening with a disappointing extra-innings, 8-4 loss to the Pawtucket Red Sox.
While the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate may not have had the freshest of fresh starts in the books, their outlook remains just as optimistic as before the first...
Here's the bet;Will the Yankees win a game before the Marlins score a run?It is only day 3 of the 2013 season, and look what fun we are already having?Thanks, Brian, for making this year a cake walk.
The walls were starting to close in on the Yankees after the first two games of the season. An 0-3 start would not have doomed their season, but combined with all the injuries the club has sustained the feeling of a lost season in the making would only have grown stronger.
It would be easy to say that last night Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera turned back the clock. It would also...

The analysts, experts, baseball fans, and maybe science itself don’t think the Yankees will be good this year. With the massacre of injuries and both an April starting lineup and starting rotation, with an average age of about only 33 years old (you’d think it would be higher, I know) and a couple of old guys, one would say the 27-time-Champion...
Admit it. It may be only two games, but this Red Sox team has been fun to watch. Whether it's the lack of Bobby V running the show, or the presence of Jackie Bradley Jr., the start to the 2013 baseball season has been very entertaining. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the Red Sox have beat up on the Yankees twice already, including tonight's 7-4 win in the Bronx....
