10 Random Thoughts For the #Yankees Stretch Run, by @nyypete

Heading to the stretch run can anybody make any sense of this team? Consider: 1. The Yankees have stolen eight bases in 12 attempts since the all star break. Rickey Henderson used to do that in one weekend series. Stolen bases are only the tip of the iceberg. When bats get heavy as the season rolls along and Earl Weaver's favorite offense, the three run home run, comes to a screeching...

Thoughts On The Problems With The Yankees Offense

The last seven games for the New York Yankees felt a lot like the last two seasons for the New York Yankees. Especially the 2014 season, when their offense was consistently non-existent. Surely this sounds familiar: A lineup that keeps failing to get hits with RISP. An injured Mark Teixeira taking too long to heal. (I guess that no-fun diet can't do everything.) Alex Rodriguez...

Francisco Lindor catching up to Carlos Correa, even if you’ve never heard of him

When Carlos Correa made his major league debut for the first place Astros in June and crushed two home runs his first week, many dubbed him the next Alex Rodriguez and closed their minds to the AL Rookie of the Year race. The 20 year old, slick fielding shortstop was the best we were going to see this year without question. Francisco Lindor would like you to open your minds and your...

Rookie Sensation Ketel Marte Impressive For Mariners

The Mariners Finally Have A Shortstop Finding a shortstop has proven difficult for the Mariners pretty much since the day Alex Rodriguez signed with the Texas Rangers.  More recently we’ve seen players like Nick Franklin and Brad Miller both be handed the job only to hand it right back and in both of their cases, do it more than once. Ketel Marte has shown an ability to reach...

A-Rod's 25th career grand slam earns him new nickname

The season that Alex Rodriguez is piecing together is nothing short of magical. Sure, there have been seasons with more astronomically high numbers than the 25 home runs and 67 RBIs that A-Rod has tallied through 118 games. But it’s Rodriguez’s recent struggles that make this season eye-popping. Rodriguez missed all of last season with suspension handed down by Major League...

Darrelle Revis can’t catch a cab in New York

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who turned 30 this summer, has lost a step. He can’t catch a cab. Revis was late to a recent interview with ESPN because he couldn’t flag down a cab in New York City. Maybe he should have dropped into zone coverage. The fact that a professional athlete couldn’t get a cab has created quite a buzz. The Jets own the back pages of the...

Yankees Free (Greg) Bird

With their offense sputtering, the Yankees called up first baseman Greg Bird from Triple-A last week in an attempt to potentially help matters. Bird is strictly a first baseman, meaning he’s unlikely to see regular playing time with Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez holding down first base and DH, respectively. However, with 16 games without an off-day on their schedule, the Yankees...

Why did the New York Yankees call up Greg Bird?

On Thursday the New York Yankees promoted Greg Bird, yet another in what could be a slew of top prospects the team will call up to their big league roster in the coming weeks. A first baseman by trade, Bird will serve as a backup to both incumbent starter first baseman Mark Teixeira and DH Alex Rodriguez. So with this knowledge, one has to wonder: why did the Yanks bring up a...

A-Rod and CC hug it out after Alex's 3000th hit.Well, that was a pretty exciting -- and exhausting -- day in Yankeeland! First, even I, the author of "The Redemption of A-Rod," was positively stunned when I heard that the Yankees were going to honor Alex Rodriguez with a special day for his 3000th hit.
