Alex Gordon Dives Into Stands In Potential Catch Of The Year (Video)

Move over, Derek Jeter. Alex Gordon has the newest dive-into-the-stands catch everyone’s talking about.

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...

David Price's Continuing Struggles Against The Yankees

When David Price was with the Tampa Bay Rays, the New York Yankees managed, despite his pedigree, to have some good at-bats against him, even beating him on more than one occasion.  The pinnacle of that success, it could be argued, was the day Derek Jeter got his 3,000th career hit, a home run over the left-centerfield wall.  Everyone remembers how Price went down on one knee,...

Fastball: Documentary to be Released About the “Seminal Pitch”

It may take a director days, weeks, even months to figure out the perfect title for a film. However, this time it was rather easy. “Fastball.” Sounds boring doesn’t it? Well, it could be if you’re not a baseball nerd like myself. “Fastball,” according to CBS Sports, is a documentary “that aims to celebrate baseball’s seminal pitch.” There are many recognizable faces...

Derek Jeter on baseball: “I don’t miss it at all”

The New York Yankees and their fanbase certainly miss their captain Derek Jeter, but Jeter doesn’t necessarily miss baseball. While appearing on The Players Tribune channel on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio, Jeter was asked again if he missed the game, and his answer was pretty straightforward. “The question I always got was, ‘Do you miss it?’ […]

Derek Jeter says he doesn't miss baseball at all and hasn't even watched

After 20 years in Major League Baseball, 2747 games (plus 158 in the postseason) and many thousand miles in the air, Yankees great Derek Jeter has finally experienced a spring wearing something other than pinstripes. Still there's nothing quite like the rush of a big hit or momentous play, and many athletes struggle to fill that void after retiring. On Wednesday, Jeter appeared on...

Yanks Getting Comfortable In Basement

  Hal's home basement (shown here) is nice, in a medieval, royal kind of way, but the Yankees will need more than columns and rocks. Our guys are athletes, after all. A well-equipped basement gym is de rigueur! Anyone up for practicing their golf swing? Whaddya say, McCann? Bet you can break 200! Always important to relax. Watch 'Field of Dreams,' 'Moneyball,' ...

Should Yankee fans start rooting for a complete collapse?

I was talking with a Yankee fan yesterday about the bad old days, the era of Hoss Clarke and Fred Talbot, in the late 1960s. He said something I hadn't really thought about: That the days of Roger Repoz and Lindy McDaniel are some of his most cherished Yankee memories, because that dark era separated real Yankee fans from the fair-weather hordes. It culled the herd, I guess.If the...

Slumping Didi Gregorius says all he can do is laugh off Derek Jeter chants

Didi Gregorius probably understood from the get-go that it wouldn’t be easy to replace Derek Jeter in the New York Yankees infield. After all, the former shortstop dubbed the “Captain” was a once-in-a-generation kind of player who was respected by his teammates and worshiped by fans. But even the 25-year-old likely didn’t expect he’d have...Read More The post Slumping...

No matter how hard fans wished Derek Jeter was going to show up at Yankee Stadium on Monday, donning pinstripes and swinging a bat, was fantasy. But the logical choice to throw the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day was no where to be seen at all. So former manager Joe Torre was given the honor. The retired shortstop stayed true to his word and, just like he said he...
