Yankees play with Harlem Globetrotters

CC Sabathia’s appearance at a Harlem Globetrotters game could have been some foreshadowing for his disappointing opening day start. During a break in their preseason schedule, New York Yankees CC Sabathia, Curtis Granderson, and Nick Swisher participated in a Harlem Globetrotter’s showcase. CC struggled with this version of baseball, as one of the Globetrotters launched...

Do you think the Yankees are in trouble?

Joe Maddon (Photo credit: Wikipedia) 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...

Rivera has rare blown save, Rays beat Yankees

Mariano Rivera took the blame for a rare blown save. Carlos Pena hit an early grand slam off CC Sabathia, then completed a ninth-inning comeback with an RBI single off the New York closer that lifted the Tampa Bay Rays to a season-opening 7-6 victory over the Yankees on Friday.
