Youkilis: 'I'll never be Alex Rodriguez'

New Yankees third baseman Kevin Youkilis had his first workout with the team on Thursday and seized the opportunity to point out that he cannot replace A-Rod.

Yankee fans are ready to welcome Youks to the Bronx

New York Yankee fans need to relax, big time! Kevin Youkilis (Photo credit: Keith Allison) Kevin Youkilis might play for the Yankees, but he will forever be a Boston Red Sox in my mind. So earlier this week when Youkilis told ESPN New York, “I’ll always be a Red Sox,” personally, I found it refreshingly honest. The problem is a majority of Yankees Universe did not. Shocker...

Yankees’ Derek Jeter to Begin Play in March

New York Yankees’ star shortstop Derek Jeter has arrived at Yankees’ Spring Training camp in Tampa, Florida. Jeter will work out with the team, but he will not participate in the Yankees’ initial Spring Training games, which begin on February 23. Instead, he will wait until at least early March to test his surgically repaired ankle in full-speed game action. Jeter...

Kevin Youkilis sez he'll 'always be a Red Sock'

$12 million for one season doesn't buy what it used to. Kevin Youkilis, who will make more in 2013 than David Wright will, made his New York Yankees debut Thursday. And he promptly announced his loyalties to his old Boston Red Sox team, saying "I’ll always be a Red Sock." Oh, great.I couldn't stand Youk -- I call him Yuck -- as a Red Sock, and the fact that he...

Kevin Youkilis: Put A Red Sock In It

Right back at you, Kevin! “I’ll always be a Red Sock. To negate all the years I played for the Boston Red Sox, and all the tradition, you look at all the stuff I have piled up at my house and to say I’d just throw it out the window, it’s not true. Those were great years in Boston. One bad half-year doesn’t take away from all the great years I had there.” – Kevin Youkilis...

Kevin Youkilis still has fond memories of his time in Boston

It’s no surprise on the day former Red Sox third/first baseman Kevin Youkilis reported to Yankees spring training the first words out of his mouth to the media were about the Red Sox. What may surprise you to know is that those words were spoken with high regard for his former organization. Youkilis spent 9 years with the Red Sox organization (2004-2012) and was a vital member...

A-Rod is happy tell-all book to be permanently benched

Alex Rodriguez — who is already getting enough press for his alleged involvement with performance-enhancing drugs — is happy to know that a long awaited book about the New York Yankees slugger's  life has been shelved by its publisher. A source told The New York Daily News that A-Rod thinks it's great that a book about him, being written by Pulitzer Prize-winning author...

Youkilis happy to be a Yankee

Kevin Youkilis' new teammates were waiting to razz him when the third baseman walked into the New York Yankees clubhouse.

Jeter still expects to be ready

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter could start running on the field in the next couple days for the first time since ankle surgery and still expects to be ready for opening day.

David Wright: Our Derek Jeter?

Earlier this week, Mets owner Fred Wilpon referred to David Wright as “our Jeter.” Some may be taken aback by that statement, but it make sense when considering what each player has brought to their respective franchises. Both are the “faces” of their franchise, have spent their entire careers with their team (and will probably end them there as well), have been referred...

News and Notes from Tampa: Day Three

This guy is a Yankee. And it’s weird. (Photo courtesy of Flickr) Things in Tampa continue to heat up. Youk arrived yesterday and already stirred up the fan base by saying he will “always be a Red Sock.” I think if we resist the knee-jerk reaction to overreact, we can understand where he’s coming from, but it was still an interesting choice of words on his first day in pinstripes...

SF Giants Spring 2013: New Energy and a Familiar Question

Spring Training for the San Francisco Giants is getting as predictable as Tommy Lasorda's favorite ethnic food. Or Alex Rodriguez ruining yet another very expensive lie-detector machine. Really, what would Spring in Scottsdale, Arizona be without Willie Mays and Will Clark roaming the clubhouse and batting cages, casually dispensing wisdom and humor? And once again San Francisco...

Wright Humbled By Wilpon’s Comparison To Jeter

On Thursday, Mets’ owner Fred Wilpon came out and compared David Wright to the Yankees’ Derek Jeter, at least in terms of being the face of the franchise. You can read more thoughts on Wilpon’s comments from Adam Rubin at ESPN. Here are the Mets owner’s comments: “David is a unique player. He’s an All-Star,” Wilpon said Wednesday while touring Mets camp. “I think...

What John Sterling would say about the Pope quitting

1. I don't care what anybody says. You can't predict popes, you just can't. 2. This is one of the great things about religions. Today, there is one pope. Tomorrow, there will be an entirely new pope, and that means an entirely different game. Other sports put the same two teams out there. But it's not that way with popes.3. Right now, it's impossible to say if...
