Let's crunch some numbers relevant to Cardinals-Royals series

When two first-place teams face each other, the drama is inherent. When those teams are cross-state rivals and are playing the most meaningful series between them since one (the Royals) beat the other (the Cardinals) in the World Series 30 years before, well, the drama rises to a new level. Here are some numbers from STATS LLC that help put the series in perspective from a number...

As promised, Urban Meyer did not let an appendectomy prevent him from making a scheduled appearance at Yankee Stadium on Friday night. The former minor league shortstop turned three-time national champion college football coach threw out a ceremonial first pitch but was unhappy with the result, a ball that fluttered high and away from the plate. "Ah, it's soft," the Ohio State head...

Cooperstown’s conundrum: The Baseball Hall of Fame debate

Enshrinement into the Baseball Hall of Fame is considered the sport’s highest honor. No one will, or should even try to debate that. It is the place that we take our families and friends to teach them about America’s past time; the greatest game ever played. The institution, which has been open to the public every year since 1939, and held its first induction back in 1936, currently...

Video: Drone’s Eye View of Derek Jeter’s mansion

YouTube There is no privacy for the newly-retired Derek Jeter as a drone was sent to spy on his 21,000 square foot mansion.  Don’t even think about flying your drone over Comerica Park in Detroit, but Jeter’s house is fair game.  I guess anyway.  Busted Coverage came across this video of the seven bedroom, nine bathroom dwelling that cost Jetes about $12 million to build.

Take A Drone Ride Over Derek Jeter’s Mansion

  I’m not sure what’s legal and illegal in the drone community, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen a drone used to get a better look at a celebrity house. The bad news here is that Derek Jeter wasn’t throwing some wild kegger at his 21,000 sq. ft. Tampa mansion. It’s just a regular day where the fountains are dancing and the hot tub is turned on.

MLB Week 4 recap: The empty stadium game

Sports can be an escape from the rest of the world, but more often that we might realize, they are just a reflection of it. This past week showed us a bit of that, particularly with the Wednesday afternoon game between the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles. The stands were empty because the game had been closed to the public after cancelled games on Monday and Tuesday due...

After 10 years as a Yankee, did A-Rod Friday night finally win over the fans?

Recently, somebody asked Alex Rodriguez what's it like to hear boos whenever he steps out of a dugout. He said it's nothing new: He's been booed his entire career. He was booed for leaving Seattle. He was booed for costing Texas too much. He was booed for being a Yankee. He was booed for slumping in the playoffs. He was booed for not being Derek Jeter. He was booed for...

Let the record show that Alexander Emmanuel Rodriguez outlasted Bud Selig, George Steinbrenner, Curt Schilling, Willie Mays and even Derek Jeter. He's still out there - hands down, the greatest ballplayer of his generation - bating third for all to see. And someday - maybe decades from now, after the indignation and anger has settled down - A-Rod will be defined, if not appreciated...

Didi Gregorius hears Yankees' fan chants: for Derek Jeter

NEW YORK (AP) When Yankees fans give Didi Gregorius a shout out, it is not necessarily positive. Gregorius hears it after making an out or committing an error: not his name, but his predecessor's. ''Everywhere I go, people chanting Derek Jeter and all that stuff,'' he said. ''There's nothing I can do with that. I'm just here trying to play my game, trying to make a lot of improvements...

Mets Inching Closer to Yankees in Local Television Ratings

For the better part of the past quarter century, the New York Yankees have controlled the nation’s largest media market. This is obviously due to the team winning five World Series titles since 1996. It also doesn’t hurt that the New York Mets have had only nine winning seasons during that span. You have to go back to the Mets run to the title in 1986 for the last time the stepsister...

Mets almost even with Yankees in viewership

It’s been a while since the Mets have been good. Fans have been starved for a winner and have had to endure years of bad teams. But that has changed thus far this season with the Mets riding an 11 game winning streak going into Friday’s action against their cross-town rivals, the Yankees. During the winning streak, the Mets fans have responded by watching the games on SNY in...

Will this weekend's Subway Series mark NYC's official changing of the guard?

For the last decade, "number 2" signified Yankee greatness, as it graced the hallowed jersey of Derek Jeter. Starting tonight, "2" might define the team's place in New York - maybe for the next decade. Statistically and realistically, the Subway Series cannot ruin the Yankees' 2015 season beyond three games. Three and out. That's all. The Yanks could botch all three, and then...
