Last night, the Yankees even drained all the energy from Adam Sandler

Last night, in the middle of another one-run debacle, the YES Team welcomed comedian Adam Sandler to its Booth of Death. And if viewers inched forward in their seats, expecting a funny song or patter of jokes, well, it was like listening to a retired librarian interview her former accountant for an NPR Storycorp. Sandler spoke in a hushed tone, so meekly you barely caught his words...

Hell of a tale.

MLB drug probe litigation could be lengthy

We may never know exactly what Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun are being accused of in Major League Baseball's Biogenesis investigation - if they beat the rap.
