All 5 Of Jorge Posada’s World Series Rings Were Stolen (Video)

The investigation is still ongoing.   The post All 5 Of Jorge Posada’s World...

On this day in history | 2001

Down 0-2 in a best-of-five ALDS series, the Yankees were in Oakland trying to stave off elimination on this date back in 2001. The game featured a matchup of two aces – Barry Zito and Mike Mussina – so offense was expected to be limited. And it was. Jorge Posada came up to the plate in the top of the fifth inning, and sent a 1-0 pitch to left-field for a solo home run – giving...

After watching the New York Yankees get destroyed by the Boston Red Sox this past weekend makes it hard to believe that they are still in contention for an AL Wild Card spot. But thanks to sub-par and inconsistent competition courtesy of the Rays, Rangers, Orioles, Indians and Royals, the Yankees are still clinging to life for a coveted postseason berth. Looking at all the teams...

The Forgotten Year of ’97

When I heard the Baltimore Orioles haven’t won the American League East Division since 1997 it got me thinking, who was on that ’97 Yankees’ team? Don’t hate me, but I was 7 years old the last time the O’s topped the division. Some were no brainers for me, Jeter, Williams, O’Neill, Martinez and Posada as position players. Funny thing though Posada wasn’t the starter...

Colored nails for catchers? Signs point to yes

For years, Matt Flaherty watched major league baseball games on television and cringed at the sight of catchers using makeshift items so pitchers could distinguish their intricate in-game hand signals. Some catchers applied athletic tape between their middle knuckles. Others spray painted or nail polished fingertips or chalked their hands in the dirt while squatting behind the batter...
