Barring an act of God, A-Rod soon will tie Satan - 666 - on the all-time HR list

The neatest part of that long legal battle between Alex Rodriguez and MLB was the group of "protesters" who gathered each day outside the Clown Court, waving home made signs. A few said - wonderfully - "RANDY LEVINE IS THE DEVIL." I shall always cherish that memory. But soon, A-Rod again will lock horns with Old Scratch. He's at 660 HRs, and sometime before June 13 - no, it's not...

For the last two years, the Yankees have conducted elaborate farewell tours; this year, how about a season-long "apology" tour?

I woke up this morning - as always - pondering ways to help the Yankees. It is the thinking fan's job to constantly come up with strategic advantages, which could steal us a regular season win - and maybe propel us to a championship. Brian Cashman and Randy Levine have enough on their plates. We free-thinkers represent the Fourth Plank of Yankee Smart Power.Here are my ideas.1. This...
