Alex Rodriguez Making Good Use of Candles & Flashlights During His Power Outage

Is Alex Rodriguez Samson, the Biblical character whose supernatural strength disappeared when Delilah cut off his hair?  When I hear the media talk about him these days, that's what comes to mind. I think of the hair as Alex's use of PEDs, and Delilah as Selena Roberts.Whether the lack of PEDs is the reason for his average offense is hard to say at this point, but Alex...

Yankees Sale Would Make Sense

Geroge Steinbrenner once compared the Yankees to the Mona Lisa. “Once you own it, you never sell it.” Apparently, his children did not always pay attention to his lessons. Yesterday morning, the baseball world awoke to the shocking revelation in the New York Daily News that Hal Steinbrenner, who has taken over as managing general partner in the last few years, is exploring...

Yankees Game 45 Lineup: 05/25/12

On the road again, the Yankees travel for a stint in the West coast, beginning with a three-game set against the Oakland A’s. The Yankee offense picked it up slightly in their last game against the Royals, but it seems like they still don’t have any offensive consistency this season. Still seeking a win-streak longer than four games, maybe the Yankees can find their swings in...

Yankees power past Royals 8-3

Alex Rodriguez gave Will Smith a rude welcome to the major leagues Wednesday night, hitting two homers off the rookie to back another strong start for Andy Pettitte and lead the New York Yankees over the Kansas City Royals 8-3. A-Rod snapped a 52 at-bat homerless drought and drove in three runs for New York. Curtis Granderson also connected off Smith and the Yankees scored three...

Top-10 possible Yankees owner (Not Really)

Since rumors are out, I've decided to create a list with ten possible new owners for the New York Yankees: 10.) The Soup Nazi (Seinfeld): This should be fun to watch. You struck out?, no more soup for you. You gave up a home run?, no more soup for you. But that's pretty much it. 9.) Indiana Jones: The guy is a badass, an educated badass. Among other things, he would be...

Team O'Neill to visit Yankee Stadium

At first, Doug O'Neill thought his prank caller pal Mark was at it again. So when the trainer of Triple Crown hopeful I'll Have Another was told Jessica Steinbrenner was on the line the other day, O'Neill wasn't buying it.
