Something will happen today. It must happen. I'm sort of dreading it. Today, we will learn why, why, why the Yankees sandbagged themselves into a corner in their obsessive quest for somebody named Dustin Ackley.  I spent last night trying to figure it out. Never did. Ackley's nickname should be "The Sphinx." His presence as a Yankee - if he remains one after today - is a dark...

Tuesday night, there was much action piling into the DFS Volkswagen that was the Toronto Blue Jays hitting.

Chris Young Should Be Odd Man Out of Royals Rotation

  Royals new hired gun Johnny Cueto officially joined the Royals last night. To clear roster space, Joe Blanton, one day after recording his second save (this one the rare 3-inning variety) in three appearances (only two career saves), was shipped out, designated for assignment. Blanton, gave us more than we ever expected this season, producing a 3.89 ERA over 41 2/3...

New York Yankees: Exceptional players for the month of June

The New York Yankees finished out June with a 15-12 record after yesterday’s 2-1 loss to the Angels. Earlier in the month, the Yanks rattled off a 7-game winning streak and looked to be in command atop the AL East.

Mike Trout puts on another show with crazy catches, home run & more

This was the 'Mike Trout Show' again on Monday, and that was no more evident than the flick of the wrist of Yankees outfielder Chris Young. Young was robbed by Trout of extra-base hits in consecutive at-bats. Trout had another one of those leaping, sprinting, out-stretched arm catches at the edge of the grass in the third inning. Young could've dealt with that, but the same thing...
