I hate to admit it, but Squawker Jon was right. Before the Yankees-Red Sox series, Jon and I had very different opinions on what would happen. I feared that the Sox would stick it to the Yankees over the last three games of the season as much as possible, and would try to end their season on a high note, by keeping the Yanks from winning the AL East.Jon figured it was just as likely that Boston would mail it in to make absolutely certain that Bobby Valentine wouldn't be back. And guess what? The Red Sox got swept, with Valentine himself helping to make sure that this would be his swan song (no pun intended) with Boston. How sweep it is!Not to mention Valentine trashing his coaches on the radio before the game. To top it all off, I just read that Curt Schilling might lose the bloody sock, because he put it up as collateral with his ill-fated loans for 38 Studios. How low can the Sox go?Anyhow, last night might have been my favorite night of the Yankees season. You had the Sox so ...

Curt Schilling may have to sell the famous bloody sock because he listed it as collateral in a bankruptcy filing for his now-failed video game venture.

However, he would enter the dugout, high five his teammates in the fourth inning with the knowledge that he had secured the American League...
There has been much debate over who should win the AL MVP this season. Concensus says the favorite should be Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera, who is about to win the triple crown. Many say the award should go to Los Angeles’ Mike Trout, who has enjoyed a rediculous rookie season. Josh Hamilton will get some votes, but is expected to fall short in the voting.
Those who argue Trout...
Have you ever watched the pawn shows on TV where someone comes in and tries to pawn dirt? They typically claim it is from Ebbets Field, or the old Yankee Stadium, hoping to make a few bucks. Of course, there is no way to authenticate dirt, unless you are willing to pay $39.99. But it [...]
