IT IS HIGH, IT IS FAR, IT IS caught:
New York Yankees
Old Detective Fish (Andy Pettitte) will be there. Crazy Latka (Pedro Feliciano) will return, along with Rev. Jim Ignatowski (Swish). The once-precocious kids - now grown and with children of their own - (Joba, Cervelli) - will get big rounds of applause from the studio audience. Thurston Howell III (Arod) will bounce in, with a new Ginger (Jack Cust) and Mary Ann (Russell Branyan). Who knows, maybe even our longtime former love-interest, Rebecca Howe (Mariano - or should he be the Fonz?) will make a walk-on cameo!Let's all be there! Fall will resemble a Cheers-Taxi-Family Affair reunion special - Old Timers Day sans Poligrip - as idled Yankee after idled Yankee sidles from the DL or the Scranton Empire magic bus - like creaky old Batman unpacking his cape to fight Bane. Once the rosters expand, it expect a roll call of old faves and newcomers. Dewayne Wise will return! Austin Romine - the human Brigadoon - will appear. So many prodigal sons will be coming back that - who knows -...

The Yankees come back after a big night at the plate and look to take the second game of the series with the Red Sox. CC Sabathia takes the mound looking for his 11th win of the year and to further bury the Red Sox in the basement of the AL East. Jon Lester, taking the mound for the Red Sox, has not been himself in 2012 with a 5-8 record and a 5.46 ERA. To make matters worse...
NEW YORK -- He was once considered Mariano Rivera's heir apparent. When the Yankees drafted Mark Melancon in the ninth round of the 2006 MLB draft, they were grooming him to be the closer of the future. A standout at Arizona, Melancon had the credentials, boasting a formidable fastball and curveball. But the organization's vision didn't come to fruition in 2009 and 2010...
Ichiro Suzuki has 460 career at-bats against the Red Sox. His next at-bat against the Sox, however, will be something entirely different than the 460 previous. The outfielder was acquired by the Yankees earlier this week, and he'll get his first taste of the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry on Friday night when Boston makes its first trip to New York this season for what will also be...

By now we all know Hall of Fame OF Ichiro Suzuki was traded to the New York Yankees for a ham sandwich. By all accounts it was a low risk move for the Yankees and Ichiro gets to (most likely) finish his career in New York. He also gets the opportunity (most likely) to get some serious exposure in the post season.
We also know that Ichiro is like a God in Japan. The question is;...
Editor's note: The temperature gauge is a Bill James-created statistic that measures how hot or cold hitters are. We will spotlight Red Sox and opposing team temperatures on game days. The Red Sox are set for an up-close lesson on how to build a hot streak as they head into New York on Friday night for a series against the Yankees. The Yankees, at 59-39, are tied with the Nationals...

It's safe to say that the Boston Red Sox' starting pitching hasn't lived up to expectations so far this season. But if there was ever a time to right the ship, it's now. Boston will be hosting the division-leading New York Yankees this weekend, with an expected Saturday night showdown between Jon Lester and CC Sabathia. Lester is only 5-8 with a 5.46 ERA on the season...

Curtis Granderson and Yankees fans gave Ichiro Suzuki a grand
welcome to the Bronx.
The Red Sox are 10.5 games behind the New York Yankees. It doesn't help that the Yankees have won 5 of the 6 games head to head so far this season. The key has been which team wins the first inning. In their latest series earlier this month, the Yankees outscored the Sox 14-6 in just four games. The pitching has to be better than that. On the bright side the Sox are only...
